Anyone who has been blogging even for a brief time will tell you that some of the search terms used to arrive at one’s blog can, to say the least, be rather… well, odd. I monitor mine constantly in order to ensure people finding my site are, largely, getting what they want from it. So when I see the phrase “semiautobiographical” in my search engine term list, or “Kafka and the doll”, for example, I get a nice warm fuzzy feeling knowing that I have helped someone along their way with, perhaps, that vital piece of information they may have needed.
Today, however, I was a little surprised to see among my search engine terms the phrase — or, rather, the question — “What is the best way to blow up a car?” I looked at it, nestled between “deal or no deal June 11” and “current affairs in biology”, and thought, That’s interesting. And it was. There’s no disputing that. So interesting, in fact, that my highly creative imagination started working overtime and I found myself dictating the same question into Google — knowing that the question would not have been answered on my blog, but fairly sure that there would be many, many answers to it out there.
And, sure enough, there were a few! Being an extremely responsible blogger, however, I’m not going to post any links to what I found. Suffice to say, I can now break into, hotwire and blow up a car.
In theory, at least. I mean, me blowing up a car…? The very idea. You just know something’d go wrong… right?
