Yes, you read that correctly Milieu Pals. Hans’ Milieu has officially had 13 000 views. Whoop whoop!
That equates to approximately 309 views per month, or just under 10 views per day, since the creation of Hans’ Milieu, way back in June of 2005.
Not too bad, even if I say so myself.
Honestly, I am actually pleasantly surprised by the total number of views my blog has received. Granted it may not seem like a lot to regular and more popular bloggers, especially those who have a dedicated following, however, in my mind, it certainly is not a figure to be disregarded.
Consequently, I would like to give an extremely warm and grateful ‘thank you’ to all Milieu Pals, whether new or old. This milestone could not have been acquired without you! Merci beaucoup!
Here are a few (since I could not find many; feel free to share if you know anymore) interesting facts concerning the number 13 000:
Bolivia’s administrative capital, La Paz, is the highest capital city in the world at about 13,000 ft above sea level (source).
Since radio waves travel at 186,000 miles (299,274 km) per second and sound waves saunter at 700 miles (1,126 km) per hour, it is possible for a broadcasted voice to be heard 13,000 miles (20,917 km) away, before it can be heard at the back of the room in which it originated (source).
A marine census has documented more than 13,000 species in the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans, including several hundred that may be new to science. The surveys surprisingly turned up dozens of species found in both seas, despite a separation of 13,000 kilometres (source).
Until the next time Milieu Pals.
(P.S.: 13 007 views now… and rising! Ha ha)
