Peaky performance

Right now there is a giant spike of traffic to, following Steve Pinker's latest tweet about one of the experiments (The Verb Quiz). I looked back over the five years since I started using Google Analytics, and you can see that in general traffic to the site is incredibly peaky.
The three largest single-day peaks account for over 10% of all the visitors to the site over that time period.

Moral of the story: I need Pinker to tweet my site every day!
