From the You Get What You Pay For Department: In construction, you can only pick two of the following three:

OUR 10th BLOGIVERSARY = 11 YEARS OF STUFF!

Friday, 3 August 2018

Tacky Raccoons Be Crawlin' 300
On Friday, 3 August 2007, the date of our first posted post that was posted, the world twitched imperceptibly, a global nanoflinch, an earthquake with the power of a morning fart, or less. It’s our 10th Anniversary, because this:

3 August 2007 – Whelped
3 August 2008 – 1st year Blogiversary
3 August 2018 – 10th year Blogiversary

There are now 4,356 posts in our archives.

Steal, lift, purloin, burgle and abscond with anything you find here, just link back and give us credit for the source.

As with previous years, we’ve celebrated those posts that received the largest number of hits, not only for the past year, but for the entire life of Tacky Raccoons, and this year is no different.

We’ve featured the Top 11 Posts every year since 3 August 2008 and this year is no different. There are some surprises, and I still don’t know why some get an exorbitant amount of hits while others fade.

Previous Top 11 hits are linked here.


The numbers adjacent to the titles below indicate ranking for the previous 12 months, followed by the previous year’s ranking, and the third numeral is for all-time popularity (August 2007 – August 2018). “NR” indicates Not Ranked.

Walter E. Williams on “Russian Collusion.” It’s not what you think it is.

Found in 2013, planet Kepler 78b, 700 light years away, orbits its star in just 8.5 hours. Its top layer is a rolling ocean of lava that reaches temperatures of 2760°C.

U.S. Marines held a training exercise (in a faux village) with Mexican Marines and a Royal Canadian Army infantry force at Camp Pendleton on 3 July 2018:

The squad of Mexican marines stepped deliberately through a narrow alley, their rifles scanning windows and roofs for any potential danger. The village seemed calm, with some local residents milling along the market street amid the occasional sounds of bleating goats.

But the blast from an improvised explosive device near the patrol broke the calm, and the Mexican force joined by several U.S. Marines for the security mission were soon under gunfire from unknown shooters in what looked like a coordinated attack.

And yes, the neighbor’s little yappy dog has been going at it since 5pm. It’s now midnight…
