    Man, that was intense. I totally meant to come here and mention it as well, but then was so busy answering questions it slipped my mind.

    My photo album is still #6 on /pics, and my AMA is #2, but the front page refreshes pretty often, so I'm not surprised. It was a hell of a ride.

    3300+ upvotes on the pictures, 2100+ on the AMA, nearly 2000 comments, tons of great questions, a few offers to take get drinks in Seattle with people, and some interesting potential opportunities I hope... More than 27,000 blog views today and so on. I've been responding to AMA questions for 6 hours straight. It's 1:30am, I'm tired as shit.

    Thanks Ali.

    Wow awesome! I always thought of 950 as an Internet celebrity, now it's official :D

    I remember the first time I had 100k people etc. read something I wrote, it's pretty crazy! I bet people will continue to follow his travels, throw some ads and sponsorships on that blog, keep traveling for life!

    The way you capture your experiences, without any journalistic experience (am I right?) tells us you have talent to take the right pictures, write excellent comments...

    So if you can be sponsored one day and travel, and that suits your projects, I wish you can do it!

    Thanks man. I'm still trying to answer some questions in my AMA although the only people who will ever see my answers are the people who asked, because well, I guess I'm a nice guy :p It's too bad, because I got some good questions late, like how to best use CouchSurfing, and some other things, but of course, the top question is about sleeping with black women, but you know how it goes....

    Now I've got various full inboxes full of questions and comments, although it's nice that the reddit thing has pretty much died down now, I was sitting at my computer for 8 hours straight a few times trying to keep up with questions.

    A few people told me how hot I was, a few (hopefully joking!) asked to marry me, and one person sent me her phone number and skype.... lol.

    It was very hard to not blow your cover as an asexual.
    Sparky says thanks for this.

    Sometimes I think about how much 'female companionship' I could be getting in my life if I wanted it, and it's a little overwhelming. Someone should create a service where I can donate it to those in need.

    Got a few messages from people in Seattle who want to meet me and talk travel, not sure guys or girls.

    My mom was hassling me about finding a girlfriend the other day too....
