Re: 1190: "Time"

did anyone think to plot in-ness vs posts?
that is, what percentage of a post could be understood by someone reading just that post?

a further excercise would be to add a third dimension, IQ, but for now the default 90 would be sufficient.

Re: 1180: "Virus Venn Diagram"

tsk.

as any fool knows, this is an euler diagram and not a venn diagram.

the former shows the relationship between sets.

the latter shows all possible intersections of two or more sets.

Re: "Public Opinion" discussion (#756)

i was having trouble understanding the relevance of the alt-text.

i though i'd get an answer to my problem by asking the xkcd-ching.

first it gave me 675 (nice coincidence of numbering) and then it gave me 481.

i never knew!
