Here are the ten most viewed posts of 2017, not including permanent site components such as the home page, Downloads, Welcome, etc. Once again it seems I’ve become the Internet gateway for people wondering about spanking their wives.


1. Spanking for Love

What is it with spanking? This post has just over twice as many views as the second one.


2. Bipedal – The Savanna Theory

The interest in this continues. It spikes at the same times each year. School assignments?


3. Ants in the Devil’s Garden

After a big drop-off from #2, people seem to love these orchardist ants.


4. Bipedal – The Aquatic Ape Theory

The curve flattens from here on down. This one is probably spillover from #2.


5. Altocumulus Castellanus

The only Cloud of the Day in the top ten. That surprises me. And I wonder why this one in particular.


6. Collective Nouns

A perennial favorite, and a favorite of mine. Murders and murmurations.


7. Most Unpleasant Sounds

This one also surprises me. A quirky little list.


8. 15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just point them at this and not have to deal with them over and over?


9. Milankovitch Cycles – Obliquity

The only top ten post that I actually wrote this year. Part of a demanding series.


10. Microsculpture – The Insect Portraits of Levon Biss

Oh, good. I’m glad the list includes a tribute to beauty and hard work.

So, that was 2017. What are the odds that spanking will be #1 again in 2018?
