There's been a lot of rumbling at the pinnacle of the Top Ten lately. I mean the "up at the top of the king pole" pinnacle.

It gets like that sometimes.

You expect one of the regulars to lead the pack— @Sugar Cookie, @ghosttruck, @Turd Fergusen— and usually one of them does.

But not always.

Sometimes one of the other posters slips in and eats their lunch for them. Sometimes that happens for a few weeks in a row.

The regulars don't like it. The interlopers giggle about it in Clown Alley. The House loves it. The owners? They don't give a damn as long as the take is bigger than the nut.

Me? I don't know what to make of it... but when it lasts more than a couple of weeks, I get nervous.

All of June was like that; four weeks, four different Number One posters. And what happened next? Massive European heat wave in July. Killed hundreds of people, thousands of animals. "Global warming" they say. I know better. Too much turbulence under the Big Top. Butterfly effect.

Don't believe me?

Same thing in August: four weeks, four different Number One posters. Early September: The most violent storms in a century pummeled Spain, causing widespread flooding and tornadoes that killed six and required the rescue of thousands.

Instability under the Big Top is a bad thing for the entire world, and we're in Week Three of a run of instability: the last three weeks have seen @Turd Fergusen, @Sue sue, and now @Craygor sitting in the Big Chair.

If one of them doesn't grab the #1 spot next week, more innocents will die.

And @ghosttruck is missing again. The last week he missed the Top Ten, Tropical Storm Imelda caused widespread, record-breaking flooding in southeast Texas.

No good can come of all of this.

Everything else looks normal: rapes (four rapes, one was bestiality), child abuse (four cases, including tasering, hanging, and multiple instances of the ever-popular starvation), and a couple of bonuses (a former meth lab that keeps on giving and a subway suicide); @Sugar Cookie bagging Most Top Ten Articles and Most Top Ten Views; @Turd Fergusen bringing the top-ranking oddball story.

It's that seeming normalcy that makes everything so dangerous.

It keeps people from seeing the patterns.

They just want to hear "Congrats to @Craygor for bringing us the Most Popular Top Ten story of the week! It was a heartwarming tale about a sex-hungry high-school psychologist and her not-so-unique therapy methods" and "Congrats to @Sue sue for making the Top Ten for a second week in a row!"

What happened in Lithuania the first time @ghosttruck missed the Top Ten? How many people were killed by freak lightning storms the week @Sugar Cookie missed? No one wants to hear about that.

Presences. Absences. Numerological patterns.

Butterfly wings.

Just because I wear a top hat, a red tailcoat and high boots doesn't mean I'm blind.

There's an ill wind blowing. It's a good time to stand out from under.
