It’s Friday ... I’m Feeling a GraphJam

Introicon My sincere thanks to Julie W for directing my attention to GraphJam, the humor site for those who are analysts at heart. Current fave posts are Population of Alderaan and Ownership of Base.

Honorable Mention goes to the Relative Emotional States post, in which I learn that Three Dog Night was, in fact, a band with three vocalists who don't play instruments. Is it just me, or is watching two guys do nothing but stand there and smile for 90% of the song ... occasionally belting out "NUMBER!!" ... exceedingly awkward?

Anyway, I think we need to submit a GraphJam post on behalf of The Point. All of their content is acquired via submission, and you, the Pointificators, are the smartest commenters around, so I know we'll come up with a brilliant idea (unless the upcoming holiday weekend has you thinking grilling, not graphing).

I wish I already had a great idea, but I don't. Perhaps something with Nina's "99 Luftballoons"? Or the Proclaimers' "500 Miles"? Or possibly even a graph of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" in which the descending number of bottles of beer corresponds with an ascending annoyance level. I'm not sure, but I do believe that The Point needs to weigh in. If you've got any ideas, submit 'em here. If we get something good, I'll create the graph, send it along, and let you know when GraphJam posts it.

Steve

How about:

Mean word count for frequent commenters?

Probability that any given BreakPointer's post will have something to do with sex?

Proportional number of comments generated by theology puzzlers, Oprah, politics, and sex?

Probability that the poll on pop culture to the right of this screen will be ended by Christmas?

Steve (SBK)

Haha... the Ownership of Base one kills me.

All I could think of:

1: 0
2: 13
3: 0
4: 0
5: 100

Left Text: % of Alive
Bottom Text: Johnny

Pop culture: Short Circuit. (Do I have to mention that?)

(The #2 is to get people to say: "Whaaa?")

Wow, Steve, you completely have this blog pegged. We gotta get some fresh ideas!

SBK, I'm going to have to do some Googling to get your reference here. Something tells me I'm missing out on something quite clever.

And Rolley actually manages to CREATE a graph in the Comment box. Nicely done!

Gina Dalfonzo

Allen, you haven't seen "Short Circuit"? We've got to have a movie-watching party at The Point, pronto.

Chris Clukey

"STAT!"

"What does that word even mean?"

"I DON'T KNOW."

Dan Berger

You can't dis Three Dog Night. They had a good thing going... including very tight harmonies and complex vocal counterpoint, a lot of the time. You can't do that well if you're also trying to play an instrument acceptably well.

Jason Taylor

I don't know about 100% of people wanting to rule the world. It sounds like SUCH a lot of work.

Pinon Coffee

I think I have a new favorite website.

Allen

Dan,

You've got a point there. I think the truth of the matter is that certain rock band arrangements seem awkward in live performance. The lead singer playing keyboard or drums comes to mind as well...

Jason,

It's true. 100%. Now some may not know that they want to rule the world. But they do. All of them.

PC,

NO! *THIS* is your favorite website. Graphjam can be a close second though.
