I win at internet points!

Someone posted a list of top HN submitters by h-index. I'm in there at #41, with an h-index of 75 (I've submitted 75 stories which have scores of 75 or higher).

Amused at scoring so highly, I popped over to the overall leaderboard and discovered that I currently squeak onto it, at #100. Which I will presumably be knocked off from at some point, as I stopped caring at all about HN Karma when I hit 20,000, and haven't spent much time submitting stories on recently.

(Not that I cared deeply about my HN score. But when I like round numbers, so when I hit 17,000 I was then determined to make it to 20,000...)

This makes me want to drive around the Highlands dodging whale poop



I saw this set of clips from the video via my Tumblr friends [tumblr.com profile] thornshrike and [tumblr.com profile] lorenzoandthellamas, and had to go find the video at once.

Thankfully, Google suggested that maybe my "Flying wales video" search, with its collection of jets flying far too close to mountains, was not quite what I intended, and pointed me in the right direction. And I stared, mesmerised, and wishing that I had a car, for about the first time ever. I still have very fond memories of a trip to Skye which took us through Glencoe, and some of the most gorgeous, awe-inspiring scenery I've seen. I can only assume that whales would have made it better.
