2014 in review

Filed under: Uncategorized — 01varvara @ 00.00

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 36,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

______________________________

The BBC made much of the fact that this artefact portrayed a beardless Christ. That’s a fairly common artistic convention in the late Western Roman Empire… ergo, why the surprise? It’s yet another proof that the Beeb has fallen… sad, isn’t it?
