Bizarre But True Facts

I occasionally consider shutting down my blog, because really, is anyone reading?

I recently turned StatCounter back on, just for the fun of it.  From it, I learn that:

1) My all-time-most-read post is the one about pregnancy and listeria.

2) Apparently everyone in the world wants a gluten-free yogurt muffin recipe.  Who knew?  (It was only incidentally gluten-free. I think I was out of flour that day.)

3) "Microwaving saran wrap" and Marie Curie are apparently of great interest to Googlers across the world.

3a) Of almost equal interest: Metformin and PCOS, friction, and whether people really have celiac disease.  (Note that I was only talking about one person, who has since decided that no, actually, she's fine with bread, OF COURSE.  Lots of people really truly have celiac disease, or even a gluten intolerance. I am the last person to argue that food reactions aren't real.)

4) And right after that are searches on why academics are such jerks.  You're welcome, world.

    Still here, faithfully reading along (though my blog is loooooong abandoned) so I get that...

  6. I am reading! But commenting mostly only works from a real computer, and the Bean mostly won't let me use one. (Much of the time, he won't let me use the ipad, either, but I can be sneakier with that one, plus I can use it on my commute.)

    Also: I'm surprised I haven't personally pushed your alcohol and breastmilk exegesis into the top slot.
