this is clearly just an elephant shadow-puppet. Dinosaurs? Nessie? made-up nonsense.

My first thought was Nessie, then an elephant...?

Now the area under the curve is 100% plus Nessie's neck.

I've always wondered what the derivative of Nessie was.

"My theory by A. Elk. Brackets Miss, brackets.

This theory goes as follows and begins now.

All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much thicker in the middle and then thin again at the far end. That is my theory, it is mine, and belongs to me and I own it, and what it is too."

-Monty Python

Statistics really can prove anything. Especially on the x-y axes of myth. It's fun though; think I'll take one for a swim.

Agreed.

Would've been much better if the axis (axii?) were labeled, at least.

Compute the area under the graph by finding a formula for Rn and then taking the limit as N goes to infinity.

This is coincidentally the same graph you get when you plot Nessie sightings as a function of drinks consumed over time. The brief dip before the neck clearly reflects a temporary blackout, followed by waking to an enormous spike in hallucinations.

So what is Nessie's standard deviation? 2?

Unfortunately the axes aren't numbered so we can't resolve any useful data from the photo. The nature of Nessie remains a mystery still.

I am now two standard deviations above the mean because I bought this shirt. My curve only has one tail.

WIN!



This shirt is awesome...got one already. It is totally going to sell out by the morning, no question about it!

I LOLed when I saw this shirt...my room mate came over to see what I found so funny. She just graduated from UCLA in Business and Econ...she stared at the shirt for a minute and asked me why I found it so funny because it didn't make any sense to her. I then tried to point out "Normal Distribution Theory...look at the mean, stdev, etc." and she just stared at me a drew a blank. I tried to go to the basics to explain it, and she soon interjected, "...wait a minute, is this something about statistics???"

Only less than .3% of observations in a sample are observed that many standard deviations away from the mean. This dinosaur must be one heck of an outlier.

Perfect for math teachers and those of us that skew the curve for the rest of the class.
