The first one is a clear winner in my book.

Every time you post about the funkiest searches that hit your site, I am reminded of when my site came up third for "sarcastic words of wisdom" with no references to me, my affiliations, etc.

I typically get hits (on my actual site, not the blog) with some variant of "porno" in them or from scientific stuff or from stuff related to my friends, my students, my schools, or me (or some combination thereof).

By the way, one could address the issue of getting drunk in different dimensions using random walks in appropriate dimensions and the behavior thereof. :)

I should be working. I didn't sleep well, and I'm completely zoned out. I'm probably going to have to fall back and revise a paper rather than trying to get something to work (which has a higher priority but I don't currently think I'm in much of a state to do correctly).

Maybe I should have posted this as a poll. My favorite is also "getting drunk in more than two dimensions".

Over 10^500 string theories in stock!

Har har. Wake me up in 20 years when one of them is actually testable, 'cause that's how much I pay attention to what's going on in the ball o' string. ;)

I suppose I have to chime in for "getting drunk in more than two dimensions", though I had some love for a lot of them. Solitude? Fantastic!

String theory is asymptotically testable.

"pics enron employees walking naked" is definitely the most disturbing. I don't really want to know what they were looking for.

Your comment on "start a business selling physics" had me laughing hysterically.
