Those of you who have read The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will know of the Total Perspective Vortex, a form of torture which drives people mad by showing them how utterly insignificant they are. This is done by giving them get one momentary glimpse of the entire infinity of creation with a tiny, tiny dot saying “you are here”.
I mention this because last month the population of this planet reached seven billion, and yesterday 21 of those seven billion people visited my blog.
I feel that everlasting fame is still some way away.
Still, it could be worse.
It may have been just one person visiting 21 times.
