humor with graphs and diagrams

Postby Micron » Thu Mar 27, 2008 11:07 pm UTC

One of Wired's blogs linked to http://graphjam.com/ which seems like the sort of humor this crowd might appreciate since we see similar work on xkcd occasionally.

Example:

Anyone have their own to add?

I'm sure everyone has seen this site as it's now quite old by internet standards and often linked to, but whatever.

This post had objectionable content.

You can probably guess what it's about.

hi swik,

those charts are actually from jamphat.com/rap, who was the beginning of graphjam (and who also contributes graphs to graphjam)
:D

I love the "Human Blood" Comparison. Also, I think it's funny that a substance which has been known to cause wars is cheaper than water.

It's not cheaper than water, it's cheaper than bottled water. Which is basically paying an extra 99.99 cents to be marketed to.

I'd imagine that it's based on the US, not the world. Those 3 would then fit into "other"

EDIT: err, aside from non-religious. That would fit into non-religious.

Man this is the wrong thread (as usual), but how many self-identified American Christians actively worship or even attend church more than once or twice a year? I mean, I celebrate Christmas, but I don't consider myself a Christian.

Active Worship and Church Attendance are unrelated. Church Attendance and Level of Faith are also unrelated.

Anecdotal, sure, but it's been my experience that the more frequently a proclaimed Christian attends an organized service, the more likely it is that they do not follow the teachings of their faith, so.. there's that.

All that matters is what you answer when asked "What's your religious beliefs or organization?"

Not necessarily, if you're promiscuous enough you could just end your acting career.
I just took my driving test yesterday, and realized I've been worrying over nothing. It was incredibly easy, although I guess it depends what country/state/territory/etc. you're in and what kinda instructor you have.

I'm just wondering how exactly they plan on driving to Tijuana. I mean, last I checked, Tijuana's in Mexico. The author is obviously some citizen of those islands way over on the opposite side of the Atlantic as Mexico.

Hydrocar?

Also, since at this point they don't have a licence, they'd have to steal a car first, then drive it to Mexico.

This was in the standup routine of a comedian I saw. It remains my favourite graph-based joke.
