What's In A Number?

As I logged into my blog today, I noticed my hit counter had just hit 800. Wow, this site has been viewed 800 times in a little under 6 months! That's about as cool as my apparent Australian following.

This brought to mind a Calvin and Hobbes strip that I had read a long time ago. It's taken from the 1996 collection titled "It's A Magical World", and talks about Calvin's obsession with chewing gum.

Calvin (while chewing gum): I need to get a heart rate monitor.

Hobbes: What for?

Calvin: To make sure I'm chewing at my aerobic threshold! Everyday I want to see that I'm chewing more gum faster, harder and longer!

Hobbes: What's the point of attaching a number to everything you do?

Calvin: If your numbers go up, it means you're having more fun.

Hobbes: .... Science to the spirit's rescue once again.

How true.

Ooh I wonder when I'll hit 1000!
