Comments are disabled. Now what did I learn? I'll be writing it up in a few minutes… first some math…

I have been trying to get some idea of how many people are viewing an average post of mine. I see a ton (over 600k) people that have circled me, but I don't have a clue as to how many people are reading these posts.
I also don't know how many people are looking at the images and aren't reading the English stuff like this I write. So how to find out?
I figured I'd post this experiment with simple instructions in English. It's like a message in a bottle. If you see this bottle in the stream add a comment that simply has the word see in it. Don't comment on the image no matter how much you want to :)
As time goes by I should be able to have a better idea of what newspapers when they existed used to call circulation.
So just comment the word see and let's see what happens.
p.s. I'll be leaving this up and not posting this afternoon or tonight so as not to influence the count.
p.s.s. Uhm I don't think you should hit the 1+ as a way of saying that you are here as it may throw things off making the post more popular than it has any right to be.
p.s.s.s. Has anyone noticed how difficult it is to simply write see
I'm sure that the experiment seems silly to some and the temptation to be clever is just too much. I'm the last to complain. It's all been fascinating to me.
