Do the Vancouver Canucks Deserve to Win the Stanley Cup?

I’m a Canadian and I want a Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup since we’re overdue. However, the way the Canucks are playing, I’m almost feeling they don’t deserve it. Not the way Canadians play hockey!

Seriously, after six games and the series tied at three games apiece, Vancouver has led for less than 33 minutes.

Vancouver has been outscored more than 2 to 1! As the league’s top offensive team with 262 goals during the regular season, the Canucks have all of 8 goals scored to show for it. Boston, meanwhile, has scored 19 goals against the league’s top defensive team that only allowed 185 goals all season.

Vancouver has also “out dived” Boston. Vancouver has faked falls, and in Game 6, they faked scoring a goal. Despite a loud “ping” off the post, and no goal light going off, Jannik Hansen acted like the Canucks just scored and stopped the game.

How to Leave your Facebook Status and Posts Higher on Friends’ Newsfeeds

Facebook’s Newsfeed of your Facebook friends’ posts scrolls with time as new ones are added, pushing old ones toward the bottom… sort of. It’s not quite that simple that new ones push old ones down. Facebook as a complex algorithm (math formula) that mixes things up a bit. So how do you beat this algorithm?

Which Were the Most Popular and Interesting Cartoons You Saw for the Facebook Campaign Against Child Abuse?

Snoopy

Last weekend, the first weekend in December, there was a global campaign on Facebook where people replace their profile pictures with their favourite cartoon character/s.

I was happy to see a lot of my Facebook friends took part. It was really interesting to see what everybody chose for their characters.

Being the curious type, the two most obvious question I had were which characters were the most popular, and which were interesting?

For the most interesting, I would have to give that to my friend Dan, who chose Banana Man.

For the most popular, that’s a much harder question to answer with any confidence. I don’t have enough Facebook friends to get a statistically significant result. Fortunately, I have this site which I estimate provided about 20,000 cartoon pictures to people looking for them over the weekend. Talk about suffocating from smog from the traffic from my blog! OMG!!!

Of course, I don’t have all the comic book characters out there, but I probably have about 500, of which 250 were here. That’s a decent sample size variety for me. I also have visitors from around the world.

From stats on this website, from what I could tell, Snoopy from the Peanuts strip was the most popular character (sometimes with Charlie Brown and Woodstock so hard to separate them out.

Comic book heroine Wonder Woman was a close second.

My Melody from the Hello Kitty strip was third.

Wilma Flintsone was fourth.

Homer Simpson was fifth.

Cinnamoroll from Hello Kitty was sixth.

Catwoman was seventh.

Love-a-lot Bear from the Care Bears was eighth.

Pebbles Flintstone was ninth.

Finally, Lucky Bear from the Care Bears was tenth.

I haven’t seen any articles yet which gives a large sample size for the most popular character, but if you do, please do share.

What about among your Facebook friends? Who was the most popular character or most popular cartoon strip?

And don’t forget about the most interesting character you saw.
