Huge in Greenland

Updated on May 9, 2013

I have one reader in Greenland

I'm Huge in Greenland!

Evidently there's at least one ISP (Internet Service Provider) remaining in Greenland. Popular wisdom (term used very loosely) would have us believe that this helpless continent is melting away faster than an ice cube in a Papa John's pizza oven. How anyone found time to peruse one of my hubs is a mystery that will probably never be solved. Not many people want to know, anyway.

According to Google Analytics, an authoritative source, my hubs have been visited precisely one time by a (probably extremely bored) web surfer in Greenland. Perhaps he was stranded on an ice floe in the Ilulissat Icefjord and picked up a wireless signal on his Blackberry as he drifted past a high-tech family of musk oxen browsing for salmon at the shoreline.

On the other hand, perhaps the visit came through a proxy server located in Greenland acting as a shield for a stalker in Kokomo, Indiana. It could happen.

Greenland Math

According to Wikipedia, another authoritative source, Greenland is home to 56,452 people these days.

1 / 56,452 = .001771416424573088641677885637355 percent of the population.

I have been read by almost 2/1000ths of one percent of the entire island, not counting transient scientists who stopped by temporarily to film documentaries for the Discovery Channel.

Let me hear from you, Greenland!

If you're the Greenlander who found my writing semi-interesting, please drop me a line. I'll send you a flotation device and a membership to Greenpeace. On the other hand, if you're too busy squeegeeing your patio and refilling the ice trays, I'll understand.

      @sheila b. : I'd go with Occam's Razor... the simplest explanation ... perhaps he read the hub backwards.

      I have a minus reader. There's google and hubpages and the long list of servers, and I have a minus on one of them. Did he die? Did I kill him? I just don't know what to think...

      @Aya Katz : That's because you actually write hubs that make sense.
