What I did on my summer vacation

Wednesday, 17 March 2004

I promised a report based on the pages views of this: I am selling a nuclear bomb… I’m not in the mood to write it but a promise is a promise. I wish my dead aunt Dotty had felt that way while living. All I wanted to do was go riding. She promised.

Countries trying to destroy America

These are the 39 countries who want to either obtain nuclear weapons or just kill Americans (47 visits were not traceable to a country).

Egypt, Australia, Sweden, Russian Federation, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Norway, Canada, China, South Africa, Singapore, Finland, Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Latvia, Turkey, Italy, Philippines, Germany, Republic of Korea, Iceland, Belgium, New Zealand, Mexico, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China, Maldives, Yugoslavia, Netherlands, Brazil, Japan, France, Croatia, Poland, Malaysia, Israel, India, and Denmark.

You think you know who your friends are.

Nuclear weapon FAQs

The most asked questions were as expected (454 visitors had no discernible or English query). A total of 162 distinct questions brought visitors in 1,103 times between the time the page went up and now.

how to make a nuclear bomb, and variants (503 times).

nuclear bombs for sale, and materials variants (35 times).

fucking americans (2 times).

how to make a nuclear bomb to kill bush (2 times).

yankee pig dogs (2 times). I like being called yankee pig dog. It has the same level of acerbic mordancy that I’m sure billionaires feel when being called capitalist swine by kids doused in patchouli.

i’m going to bomb america. Listen, boys… I know the FBI is looking out for #1 but you’re not going to catch anyone this way. McVeigh didn’t have a website.

The punchline is too obvious and too tiring to cover up. The number one position for trying to find out how to build, buy, or borrow nuclear weapons is the 40th country on the list. The United States.

Raw data

Now, the who, the how many, and the selected highlights.

United States, 600.
