Am I just imagining it, or did the average American get dumber while I was gone?

Actually, mathematically, yes. Since "The Average American" is just a mathematical (Well, statistical, really) construct to represent an aggregate of people, pyrochild's departure from the aggregate (being a smarter person) brought the average down.

So, yeah, the moment you left, the average dropped; but once you got back, it increased again, so you wouldn't have been able to observe it without changing the outcome...

The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle in action, folks! :-D

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Except that it doesn't seem to have gone back up... Maybe some other smart person left right as I came back. John Carmack? Raymond Chen? Larry Ellison? Rick Brewster?

Rick, are you in Amsterdam? :shock:

Most hosting services have clauses that say "Downtime is not our fault," yada yada...

I actually have quite a myriad of web pages on my 110mb, only you don't see them. Lots of DOCs, plenty of PHPs and HTMs, a couple of ZIPs and 7Zs. Oh boy, I must have over 50 txt files in there* :D

110mb disables hotlinking for bitmaps, but PHP is a different story :twisted:

*Whenever I'm not at the apartment (i.e., a hotel) and I need to bookmark something (and if I don't have my flash drive), I simply download FileZilla, get into my 110MB's FTP, and upload a txt file containing the link(s).
