At 10, it’s the page you probably didn’t use to find this page: the contents page.
At 9, it’s the big block of text on the page that no-one looks at: the editorial.
Did you know that the online vote is the reason that did you know made it to number 8?
At 7, but about to move to 14 as an infinite number of people have arrived, it’s Hilbert’s hotel: the game.
At 6, it’s the puzzles page. Can you work out why it’s so popular?
At 5, and causing a moderate amount of recursion, it’s top ten.
At 4, despite being deemed not hot, it’s what’s hot and what’s not.
Storming back into the top ten after not being seen since issue 03, it’s the horoscope.
