India rising: 0.9% — with a bullet

Screen Shot 2013-02-13 at 8.25.48 AM

Never mind the bullet, that's nicely making [its] way toward me as I type.

Yours is en route too, kemo sabe, don't think it's just a special case of me feeling gloomy: we've all got our magic bullets, fired at the moment of quickening and now patiently wending their way through the thickets of time until someone finally pulls the plug.

Oh, I almost forgot: you really believe you're in control of your life, and that you have free will and all rather than being part of a really, really popular and — at least to us action figures — realistic simulation being enjoyed by the post-Singularity denizens of the late 21st century.

If that makes you feel better, by all means carry on.

But I digress.

From India comes a massive (relatively) proportion of my current readership: 0.9% = 9 in 1000 people currently on bookofjoe are physically in India.

That's huge, at least to me.

Welcome, Bangalore and Mumbai and Delhi, and Chennai and Kolkata and Ahmedabad and Hyderabad and all the rest of you, yeah Jaipur and Lucknow and Surat and Pune, I got you too.

I love you all and hope one day to physically visit your magical, impossible country.

My Mumbai-based Crack Research Team®™© correspondent tells me it's like nothing she's ever experienced — and trust me, this girl's been around.

Ernst, you are correct: my bad.

I just put a fresh battery in my calculator.

9 in 1000 people, duly noted.

Sorry Joe, but 0.9% are not 9 in 100 people...
