Is there more traffic on a Monday?
« on: 27/09/2010 20:11:20 »
Without doing any meaningful research or anything, it sort of looks to me as if there could be a big spike in the number of posts on TNS that might coincide with people in the UK returning to work on Monday morning.

Now, I'm not suggesting that people are goofing off or anything, but has anyone else observed this phenomenon?

Sheesh! You lot are not much help. I was going to apply for a grant from the NSF (no, the other one - the National Science Foundation) to study this as it is clearly a question of great scientific importance.

Excellent piece of investigation Sheepy.

Can you corroborate this with some evidence, not that I disbelieve you (perish the thought) but one should always provide evidence. And, of course, you should be able to repeat the investigation and arrive at an identical result.

Once you have fulfilled the above requirements, you shall be rewarded with this:



And this
