For those who missed it, this blog was briefly named “The Brain of Seebs”. And it was indexed by several search engines under that name.
And I had a link to Real Live Preacher. And a story about some of my spouse’s new pictures.
Which meant that, when someone searched Yahoo! for “real live pictures of brain”, all of his search terms matched this humble site, and he came here.
And a day later, someone searching for “brain picture nice” on Google found me as well.
It’s not as good as “fucktard nerdy redhead twat”, but it’s a good start on weird referer entries in logs.
And, no, sorry - no real live pictures of brains.

It could be worse…
I wrote a piece about marriage. In passing, it mentioned the words “woman” and “sex”, two of the main motivations for getting married.
I gave the article a title “Like a horse and carriage” thinking nothing of it.
Now, I’m still getting people searching for “woman having sex from a horse”
Much later on, I wrote a piece about child pornography on the usenet alt.binaries.* groups. (It’s a technical article on the efforts to stop it, not a guide.)
Recalling my piece on marriage, I was expecting a few misdirected searches for people looking for actual child porn, and indeed they did. But when they did start, I noticed something odd, most searches included ages in the keywords. I would have expected 12 and 17 to turn up occasionly, as I used a newsgroup ending in “.12-17” as an example. But I was getting lots of other ages, everything from 5 to 21.
Then it hit me, like your web site, I had included a calendar in the document. The search engines had indexed all numbers from 1 to 31, and anyone who did include an age in thier search terms would have seen a row of numbers (it would not look like a calendar in google’s summary) and assumed it was a directory.

Don’t ever mention the O!lsen T!wins. You’ll be besieged with hits looking for pics of them in thongs or bras.
Now that you’ve used the word “fucktard” in a post you’re a true blogger.
