From the archives, the Full Gadget Ratio
LESSONS LEARNED ABOUT THE INTERNET:
- If you give people a joke that includes math, people will try to solve said math.
- If you give people a joke about math and don’t check your math, all the comments back to you will be sure to point out your fallacy.
- If you give people a chart and a joke about math and don’t check your math, nobody will appreciate how much time you put into making the pretty chart.
When I originally posted this chart it had a slightly different equation, but it was pointed out that there were some logical issues. Those have been fixed, due largely in part to the help of a rather lengthy proof (found here).
And of course, I’d be remissed if I didn’t mention you too can own a full-size poster print of the Full Gadget Ratio.
