    I am just wondering if any other people out here are using stumble upon. Its a really cool toolbar add on that just opens up your internet browsing. You have topics that you check and you hit the stumble button and you start stumbling on topics which you have checked. Wether its guns, cars, astronomy, basically anything. You really can learn a lot and run into web sites you would never have ever even known were there. If you don't have it yet. It is for sure worth looking into.

    I have only used it for a little over 3 years now. It's pretty awesome isn't it? I really like the send to your friend features vs email people web links.

    StumbleUpon is awesome. They make an app for Iphone and Android now. Just got my 1,000,000th Stumble.

    As cool as it is, I also got that stumble within the first year of having it. It is for sure fake. There is no way I stumbled an average of 2,739 times a day for a year straight.

    Even if I got got the 1,000,000th stumble after the 3-4 years later after I first downloaded it, it would mean i stumbled 900-700 times each day. It's Just not possible. On a good day I might stumble on 30 things and actually read them. But 700, 900, 3000 ? I don't think so.

    haha I know.. Something just didn't seem right when I saw 1 million. So I busted out the good ol calc and punched in some numbers. I was also sad to know I didn't spend as much time on the computer as I once had thought lol :cool:
