What do you do if you forgot to turn off the refrigerator light before Shabbat?

880 in less than a day? I am very curious.

    Not in less than a day, but, yes, it's a lot.

    Isn't the point of SE, that people ask questions on google and get the SE site as an answer?

    @avi, sure, but this sort of traffic on a question right after it's asked is anomalous in the context of this site.

My first guess would be that someone with a lot of followers linked to it on Facebook or Twitter.

I've found one mention on Twitter, but it's not from someone with a lot of followers.

UPDATE: Found it. Note the number of subscribers to that particular subreddit. Anything that gets any traction at all there will be clicked on by many.


I am going to telll you the truth .... When I found this question, I did something very special, which usually I do not do: I mailed it to my friends as 'the joke of the day' ... and they loved it, and forwarded it to their friends, etc ...
