Within Striking Distance: Charles vs. Charles

Every so often it’s kinda fun to ask Ms. Alexa how Little Green Footballs is faring in the blogosphere, and she always responds with, “Heh. This is too funny. Check it out.”

So we download, screencap and graphically enhance recent results (without altering the easily verifiable statistics) and post them here for chuckles.  We also post them here for Charles’ benefit, because he doesn’t check Alexa and doesn’t read here. So let’s go.

Alexa 151107 Stats 1

Yeah, Little Green Footballs, despite being run by a self-described code minkey, loads slower than 2/3rds of the rest of the world’s websites. He’s got it so crammed with adverts, pop-ups and unnecessary code that scrolling through comments, let alone trying to navigate through his spazblog, sucks big green donkey Johnsons.

Here’s his traffic profile spanning the past 6 months:
Alexa 151107 Stats 2

Interesting. Not sure what bumped the LGF traffic in late May 2015; perhaps it had to do with the GOP Presidential race, and that the entire world wanted to read Charles Johnson‘s vapid assessment for amusement.

There’s no point in comparing Charles Johnson‘s Little Green Footballs’ stats with Breitbart, AtlasShrugs, Ace of Spades or GatewayPundit because Little Green Footballs flatlines at the bottom of the graph. (We’ll bet that even Leo Sayer‘s fansite gets more traffic, but we haven’t checked.)

Instead let’s try this comparison between LGF and GotNews.
Alexa 151107 Stats 3

So here’s the gist.

Alexa 151107 Stats 3c

CCJ/GN is trending upward and catching up to CFJ/LGF, and CFJ/LGF is trending downward and catching down to CCJ/GN. It’s like matter and antimatter converging, and once it happens, they’ll exchange clothes, shoes and recipes, and start all over again.

Have at it.

    It does my heart good to see that the decline is still happening even after all these years.

    When he finally hits bottom, we’ll have to contract Bob Ballard and a fleet of submersibles to find the wreck of the S.S. Chunktanic.

    Finding the debris field and following the trail of Cheetos and Mountain Dew bottles should take us right to it. 😆

    Good job, Briareus!

  2. rightymouse says:

    His GoFundme beggar’s bowl is also evidence of his unimportance even to his sickofants. It’s been almost a month since he, his brother, his cousins or anyone else donated.

  4. My mind is a little blown that that many people are still going to Little Green Meltdown.

    • Arachne says:

      Actually, I think a lot of people may click on the articles in his twitter feed but give up and close when that blue circle on their computer never seems to stop. Also, on our office computers, we get a malware warning when I click on his site. That may turn some other people away as well, but since the “click” to the site may have been recorded…..the comments certainly don’t look like the page hits.

      • pineapple says:

        Yea LGF was always slow-loading and buggy. It’s basically a haven for about 17 libtard whack jobs who tolerate it I guess.

      • Because olo says:

        I wonder how it got flagged as a malware site? 😈

        • Arachne says:

          Probably because he’s loaded it so much – our software is VERY sensitive to sites that try to load a lot of crap when you open them. I occasionally get it when it hit here, even.

          • Because olo says:

            As a general rule, these determinations aren’t automatic. They use purchased lists. Sort of like how Steyn’s site got banned from United wifi. Somebody reported it to somebody, and they did some confirmation.

          • Arachne says:

            That would make sense. Maybe I’m exaggerating on what it says. It get a blank screen with a little pixel head warning me about it. thought it had to do with malware, but I just tried to go there and it went through.

            Could be our system which ….sucks.

            Astroturfing WOT ratings has been around for a while, and I suppose it works both ways.

    Face it, goose. They’re all rich compared to you.

    • OLT's Excusing The Death Of Tyshawn Lee says:

      You have absolutely no one to thank for that except your Democratic Party friends and leaders.

      The Wee Won hates small business almost as much as he hates this country. His efforts to whip up class warfare, while less successful than his race-baiting, have shown much fruit. The country has never been more divided or hopeless without an outright war in progress.

      Congrats, Gus-Gus. And thanks for voting!

    • Arachne says:

      Uh, Sterno Man? That would be the work of Democrats.
      Go ask Fatso about it.

  6. kbdabear says:

    And Toot has never said anything remotely funny

  7. kbdabear says:

    Actually, Hitler never would have gone into politics if it weren’t for art critics…

  8. pineapple says:

    If this doesn’t sum things up I don’t know what would.

  9. Because you're dumb says:

    Next important question for GOP candidates: would you travel back in time and kill baby Nickelback?
    3 hours ago

    Would Chunkles travel back in time and kill himself so he didn’t become a brainwashed right wing racist tool?

    Chunk wouldn’t have the guts. He’s a self absorbed narcissistic weasel.

    Sadly this guy, a fantastic musician did have the guts to kill himself by abusing himself with drugs and alchohol. RIP BE

  10. Because you're dumb says:

    Here’s a remarkable person who, as a musician puts Chunkles to shame. He died a few years ago from complications of his deformity. But his music speaks for his real soul. He was a very beautiful person.

  11. Because you're dumb says:

    Here are some musicians who respect each other. So naturally Chunky could never fit it.

  12. Because you're dumb says:

    Chicago murder. Chunk pretends it doesn’t exist. Like he pretends Climate Change Global Warming does.

  13. Because olo says:

    Oh, man! Clever gotcha! 🙄

  14. kbdabear says:

    As the Toot Cheetos Fund passed its 6th month, it’s still stalled at $3185 which divided monthly is $530.83 per month. Even Unemployment pays better than that, Toot.

    A smart person would conclude that his content isn’t worth even a small donation, especially when it’s content that was stolen from sources that are available free elsewhere.

    Maybe you ought to take up that “million dollar offer” to strum some guitar strings, Toot.

    • Pakimon says:

      Chunkles’ other panhandling site is still at $0.

      There’s no telling how many chumps are paying the $79.95 $59.95 “registration fee” to block those pesky pop-up ads for Thai ladyboys and toenail fungus cures. 😆

      • Arachne says:

        Is that cumulative or is that $0 the amount you are putting in? I couldn’t tell.

        I’m wondering if the money situation is getting desperate. For sure he’s old enough to apply for Social Security, but if you start collecting at age 62, you will get the absolute minimum amount, plus you are limited in earnings to $15,720 until age 67; they deduct $1 of benefits for every $2 you earn. Now I’ve paid into social security consistently from age 20 to the present and I’m only looking at $1500 or so if I started collecting NOW. I imagine Fats hasn’t paid into it at nearly the rate I have. There is no “minimum” benefit – you get what you paid into it. So if Fats has started collecting SS, I’m thinking it’s a pittance, and it’s not going to get any bigger.

    • Arachne says:

      Is this last night? Or awhile ago?
      BTW Fatass, let me explain the concept of “total loss” to you. If the cost to repair the car is greater than Blue Book value of the car, the insurance company paying the claim is entitled to declare it a total loss and pay you only the car’s value. Period. So they are paying you Blue Book value. Which is what the INDUSTRY says is what it’s worth. That must be some piece of shit car, Fats, if a fender bender puts it in the totaled category.

      And sorry, you can always refuse the insurance company’s offer, pal, if you think you’re being gypped.

      • Because olo says:

        And then what? Hire a lawyer? 😆

        • Arachne says:

          You only have a cause of action against YOUR insurance company – there is no fiduciary duty owed to you by the insurer of the other party.

          If Fats feels the settlement offer is too low, his course of action is actually to sue the driver of the car (not his insurance company). If the driver has a policy that covers legal defense of lawsuits (most do), then it’s the insurance company that hires the lawyer and covers the costs of defense.

          Truthfully, Fats, I know you don’t read here, but here’s my free advice to you. Request in writing a higher settlement amount from the at-fault’s insurer. If they counter, continue negotiating until you reach a mutually agreement amount. If you can’t come to terms, file suit against the at-fault driver for what you perceive is the fair price of your car and see if the insurance company doesn’t come back with a better settlement amount, which is a real possibility, since they are now absorbing costs of litigation, which can get pretty high.

          But remember – if you take it all the way to trial and LOSE, you will be responsible for the defendant’s reasonable legal bills. Also, even if you win, a jury or a judge may say all you were entitled to was the Blue Book value of the car, and awards you same, and you should remember you will need to pay your lawyer’s reasonable costs (attorney fees are forgiven if you lose in contingency – costs are something you DO have to pay for) and that could eat up your whole award.

      • KGB says:

        What do you want to bet that Chunk cheered Obama’s rejection of the Keystone project but grumbles to himself about the cost of a gallon of gas?

      • ISpeakJive says:

        I’m guessing the car is very old, foreign, cheap and built before the age of bumper crumple zones. The whole car is probably out of whack now. Will the doors shut evenly?

        Take the check, Chunky. You want to drive something safer, anyway. Maybe something manufactured in this century. Maybe have a bullet-proof back windshield installed for when the mosque-dwellers point their fingers at you.

        • Because olo says:

          Now we’re back to the begging bowl. Or maybe that was the whole point of that?

          • ISpeakJive says:

            Yeah, the new one was probably for car repairs. It takes a lot of driving around town to fight the right wing. Or something.

          • Arachne says:

            I’d be asking for pix of “crumpled car”. Sounds like a scam to me.
            Question – has he mentioned the “fender bender” before now? Because you usually don’t get an instantaneous offer from the other guy’s insurance company. You tell your insurance company, they contact the other insurance company, an adjuster comes out and looks at the car, statements are taken of the parties to determine fault – a police report is requested and then after analysis the insurance company provides their offer. Is he saying this all happened in the space of the same day. If so, I call bullshit.

    • Because olo says:

      The old VW? Or did he break down and get a Yugo?

    • pineapple says:

      Here’s a picture of his “fender bender”.

      • Because olo says:

        When he says “fender bender”, I think he’s talking about his old guitar. The neck moves when he tunes it. 😆

      • Arachne says:

        I didn’t see that on the thread page. Or are you having some fun with me there, Pineapple?

      • kbdabear says:

        Low mileage doesn’t matter Toot, you have a 1990’s American compact, looks like a Chevy or a GEO, we’re not talking about a well preserved Porsche 911 here. I don’t think even the auction value on that thing is more than $1500, just the cost of replacing the hood alone makes it a total loss. The entire nose is bent to shit, the damage to parts under the hood, and judging by the fender pushed into the door and the A pillar, the frame is bent too.

        BTW, it seems like everything is “not my fault” with you, Toot. Any adjuster or cop will tell you that the majority of cars with front end damage were the fault of the driver with the bent up front end.

    • KGB says:

      Shuts in tend to have relatively low mileage on their cars, don’t they? What do you want to bet that someone backed into his car while it was parked, as always, outside his hovel?

    • KGB says:

      What do you want to bet that when Chunk crams himself behind the wheel his pannus engages the car’s horn for a few seconds until he can manually remove it?

    • Took a peek at the thread. It’s a pretty sad picture CJ’s painting there, if a “fender bender” on an old Montero puts one in a financial strait worthy of begging for more donations.

      Interesting he didn’t post pics?

      Most people I see in similar a situation just shrug their shoulders and proceed to drive the thing around with a bent fender. He doesn’t mention that option, so we can assume it is perhaps a bit more than a “minor fender bender”?

      • ISpeakJive says:

        I’m thinking he may need a spool of bailing wire and some duct tape, and maybe get in to the drivers seat thru the open window (if he could fit, that is.)

      • Because olo says:

        A bent unibody can have some strange consequences. I had a Civic a while back with “minor” unibody damage that allowed the front wheels to move just far enough apart to cause one of the halfshafts to pop out of the transaxle, and render the car undrivable. It couldn’t be fixed. The car had to be junked.

    • TreBob says:

      What a chump. I drive older cars, by choice, and had the same thing happen to my wife’s car. The guy’s insurance totaled it and we took the cheque, then purchased the car back from the insurance company at salvage value (about $500). Life was sweet. She got $3,600 from their insurance and kept the car with minor (driveable) rear quarter panel damage. Less the thousand for the new window, we netted $2,100 and still drive the car.

      And we didn’t beg a soul for any money. Charles isn’t very smart is he?

      • Arachne says:

        TreBob – that’s what most people do. In fact, a lot of times the insurance company will simply let you keep the car, especially to avoid you filing a lawsuit. Take the total value check, keep the car, get it fixed (many times, if you waive cash money in front of an auto repair shop, they will be happy to do the repairs for you under the table. A little shady, sure, but you get your cars fixed.

      Why does Exxon Mobile have a duty to educate the public on anything?
      Could you please point to the section of the U.S. Code they violated?
      Oh and a lawyer demolished this bullshit on the part of the government lawyers, dude.

    Universities nationwide are submitting to this kind of behavior. These students are whiny crybabies and I can’t wait till they get out in the real world.

    If I ran the university in question, instead of giving in to all this silliness I would issue this memo.

    “There will be no “safe spaces” allowed in public areas on campus. Media will have full access to all public areas at all times without being harassed and/or threatened.”

    “If this directive seems unreasonable we suggest you find another university to attend. We will refund any money we may owe you.”

    • And these kids and their families rack up thousands of dollars in loan debt, for what? To pay their Marxist professors ridiculous salaries for churning out brain-dead cry-babies.

        From what I’ve been reading liberals and conservatives are condemning these people.

        What these dumb SJWs didn’t think through is that the media is mostly liberal.
