The World Mood Chart.
I get the Valentine's Day spike, but what happened on Feb. 6?
This is the only thing I had on my site for that date that might be relevant: Music Industry Raids Kazaa Offices. Heh.
The reason it's lower today is because users can hit the site repeatedly and skew the score. Which I just did.
You mean it takes into account changing moods? Sounds like a feature.
There was that Moscow suicide bombing that killed quite a few people on February 6.
Cool homepage...I gave my brother that book for Christmas.
Ahhhhh, that's right. Thanks, James.
I spoke too soon. My attempt to make the world gloomier on the 25th was been subverted by happy people.
Damn dirty apes!
I now think it's full of it, anyway. I'm not even sure that our entries have any real influence on it. I mean, look at the site it's on. Click on "Change Your Life NOW!" for a good laugh.
