Before I started to write this article I noticed the side bar stats counter was claiming: There are 370 posts – a total of 137085 words written here (and counting). And in my clunky maths mind I thought ‘Oh cool – that’s 100 posts at 370 words per post – how symetrical – or something.’

As it turns out that although that was obviously wrong; strangely, at the same time that’s right. There was 370 posts, and that works out to be an average of 370 words per post. Coincidence? I think not! Merely apophenia.
