TRENDING ON GOOGLE.

Yesterday I had a sudden surge of interest for this blog, although I’m sure you won’t be the least bit surprised to know, I haven’t the faintest idea why it happened.

I have a vague idea about key words and SEO which I believe one is supposed to stick up ones back passage and I do have a few words strategically placed but as you can tell from the fact that I do not have millions of followers I have either picked the wrong words, or I am not a mega star reality television person famous for doing nothing.

Undeterred by my lack of fame I thought I would try a little experiment to see if I could boost my followers by cramming this post with the very latest things which are trending on Google to see if the algorithms might find them and push me to the top of wherever the top of the blogging world might be.

I shall slip in a mention of my latest book, The Case of the Grease Monkey’s Uncle in the hope that it is caught in the maelstrom and swept to the top of the best sellers list; you see how I slipped that piece of product placement into the conversation which is now subliminally embedded in your brain, it’s all clever stuff you know.

In an effort to attempt to be slightly scientific I am also going to mention Romain Grosjean the Formula 1 driver who I wrote about in my last two posts just in case this was the trigger for the sudden interest in the blog.

I shall now copy and paste some trending words and phrases together with a Google image which will take up considerable space and be exceedingly boring to read, so I would recommend you cease reading at this point and I will let you know how the experiment went in a post in the following days.

WHIPLASH INJURY.

Apparently Romain Grosjean suffered the largest G force ever registered after his horrendous 135 mph impact with the track barrier, recorded at 53G.

I was reminded of this when I caught a programme on the television this morning about insurance fraud where people are putting in claims for whiplash when travelling in vehicles at considerably slower speeds, even as low as 20mph.

Romain Grosjean seems to have escaped this 135mph crash with nothing more serious than burns to his hands even after an impact of 53G.

So, next time you receive your car insurance renewal and it seems a little on the expensive side you know who to blame.

ROMAIN GROSJEAN F1 CRASH.

If you read the back of your ticket when going to spectate at a motor race it states “Motor Racing is Dangerous” and I think todays crash involving Romain Grosjean can give no better illustration of the truth of that statement.

The picture shows Roman emerging from the flames where his car sliced through the barrier and broke in half splitting the fuel tanks and turning into a blazing inferno.

You can clearly see the rear half of the car and the gash in the barrier where his car left the track, a very rare thing to happen with modern Formula 1 cars.

Roman suffered minor burns and possibly broken ribs and can consider himself to be an extremely lucky young man, I’m very glad to say.

TRUMP, IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER!

I have been rather busy with other things just recently so have not been following the news that closely but happened to see a news report last night of Mr Trump and I wondered if everyone else is as confused as I am.

The question I have to ask should be quite simple to answer but I would be most grateful to hear other opinions on the matter.

Does Mr Trump actually believe all the nonsense he spouts about the Election being stolen from him by massive fraud etc, for surely if he really does believe it he must truly be as mad as a box of frogs.

JOHNNY DEPP GETS MILLIONS FOR HIS LATEST FILM.

Johnny Depp is apparently going to receive 10 million pounds for his latest film even though he has been released from the project and only shot one scene.

I imagine he was no longer required after making a complete arse of himself in his recent court case suing the Sun newspaper.

All I can say is should I ever manage to get back into acting again I would like Depp’s agent to negotiate all my contracts for me.

JON RAHM SKIMS HOLE IN ONE ACROSS THE LAKE.

Jon Rahm skims a golf ball across a lake and straight into the hole, the world wonders how can he make a ball skim across the lake.

I suggest asking Barnes Wallace, the inventor of the famous bouncing bomb used in the Dam Busters raid in WW2, or Nelson who used to skim his cannon balls across the sea to make them travel further.

The clever bit however was getting it in the hole when it got to the other side of the lake!

DONALD TRUMP STARS IN “OOPS THERE GOES MY TROUSERS.”

Donald Trump was seen today rehearsing for his latest farce, “Oops there go my trousers.”

Apparently he said to his assistant; “So I’m coming out of the French doors, stage left, I utter my line, anyone for tennis, then pause for the audience reaction.”

“I shall then walk slowly to centre stage where I have my next line, accompanied by silly grin.”

“Trust me, I can keep this farce going for months, I’m not booked to appear at the Glasgow Empire until June of next year!”

“I shall then exit, stage right to the sound of my own footsteps and that’s only scene one!”

It seems once in the wings he was heard to question how long The Mousetrap had been running suggesting he could do better, although a review in this weeks Stage newspaper said; “More Trump, oh no, God forbid.”

I DO NOT WANT AN ELECTRIC CAR.

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to an article concerning VW and their intention to make Bentley a subsidiary of Audi.

I didn’t think this was a major problem, for Bentley was a subsidiary of Rolls Royce for many years, then VW and now Audi, that doesn’t seem too bad. 

The part of the article that worried me is the ever closer forced introduction of electric cars and the banning of petrol cars from city centres.

I have no intention of buying an exceedingly expensive electric car, powered by a coal fired power station, as to continue to use the cars I have is a far is far better for the environment than the continued manufacture of new ones.

I was hoping the petrol ones I have would be good enough to see me out as they are more than capable of doing but as the Government keep bringing forward the date for the banning of petrol cars I can see no answer to the problem.

The only solution I have come up with and one I have to say I’m not looking forward to, is to bring forward the date of my death to coincide with the banning of petrol cars although I don’t relish the thought of dying young, I must say.

COVID-19 TRACK AND TRACE.

I’m not sure whether I’m stating the bleeding obvious as they say, but track and trace will never be any good in the UK, it is fatally flawed.

There are a considerable number of self employed people who get no help or support whatsoever when they are unemployed so as a group I suspect they have not downloaded the app, I imagine they view getting caught as rather like turkeys voting for Christmas.

Another large group who are not going to sign up are the young students who are out raving and would obviously not want their activities curtailed by track and trace.

One more section of society who are never going to join in the fun are those families who spend a considerable amount of time flitting from household to household as it is the cultural norm for them to do so.

Lastly I come to another group, myself included which I would term technophobes or Luddites who have never downloaded an app in their lives and have no idea either how to do it, nor what to do with it had they achieved the download.

I experienced this a week or so ago when I met two of my friends for a socially distanced lunch meeting where we were faced with the option of scanning the app or writing our name and phone number on a sheet of paper.

As I have never knowingly used an app I plumped for the paper version straight away but was mildly amused by my friends who were waving their phones at the strange QR code thing, neither of them with the faintest idea of what to do with it.

This leaves a small section of society who downloaded the app the minute it was available, however this too is not of much use either as these people are so scared of Covid-19 that they very rarely leave the sanctuary of their own homes anyway.

All I can say is please do not blame the Government for the failure of track and trace, for I suspect it is probably quite a good system, the only flaw being the considerable numbers of people who for one reason or another are not using it!
