Everything looks better with a graph
January 12, 2006 1:05 AM   Subscribe

My awesomeness is at an all time high, as this chart will clearly demonstrate. And thanks to the magical people at Bellygraph.com, I can create & update charts to illustrate all the trends that matter to me, from my own personal awesomeness to total number of pugs owned or whatever other metric I choose.

Ahh, shoot, what should be five minutes of fun turns into seven because you need to first register. Pooh.

Remarkable. Just like MS Excel - or indeed any other application, anywhere that lets you label the axes of graphs yourself. In fact, come to think of it, I might have been even been doing this sort of thing on graph paper at school.

My awsomeness went off the charts a long time ago.

True also of My Bathroom. When I try to plot how private a place it is, all I come up with is a straight line reading "very."

And HEY, my drunkenness chart is spiking!

Application error (Rails)

Just because you can make a website in 20 minutes with Ruby on Rails, doesn't mean you should. Maybe put 40 minutes into it and sprinkle it with a little bit of css, shake, and presto!

Hey, His Bathroom is just like mine...

"a special place where I can stay, and cream, and dream"

Hmm. Perhaps I should plot those activities on Bellygraph?

Reminds me of MoodStats.
Wow, not updated since mid-2003 ! Guess the business plan didn't go as expected...

Your awesomeness has apparently plateaued. Your act is stale. You need to shake it up a bit - I'd like to see some growth in the next quarter of '06. I'm going to rate you a hold for now pending second quarter results.

Just from looking at the graph, my guess is that your awesomeness is actually only so high due to some sort of shady leasing arrangement with a German town somewhere. Admit it, you sold your mediocrity to Germany, then leased it back, before writing it off as a loss, causing your awesomeness to spike.

You're also getting significant competition from the Leah sector. I suggest introducing a second product line. Our focus groups are honing in on "mysterious edginess" as a desirable quality.

Actually Leah made a decimal point error in the reports, she actually flatlined at 1 some time ago.

While I agree with Miko about a second product line, I urge you to consider "radicallity", or perhaps even "knarliosity".

monju - your link contains some real gems. Check out the comments section and look for "ben scott on December 7, 2005
thought this is a great idea and got round to collecting a few links that are of use for many academics (science infomatics)"


Totally awesome. Thanks, bookmarked

I know, those graphs were the charmingest thing ever, joelf. Did she have a heart of steel? I bookmarked them for potential V-day use, myself.

Joelf, I loved your charts,and I am stunned at their lack of efficacy. Clearly she wasn't the right person for you if she couldn't appreciate your fancy chartwork.
posted by jonson at 10:27 AM on January 12, 2006


actually, jonson, it looks like your awesomeness is at an all-week high instead. In order to accept your all-time awesomeness, I'd need to see somethign that dates back to at the very least your birth.
