I think I'm missing something here. What is this all about?

The orthogonal axes of Serious and Humour delineate a zen landscape that rewards the viewer not so much through the passive act of viewing but rather through the realisation of the existence potential on an otherwise blank canvas.

'nuff said?

I could view it in IE. Look at the source code for hours of entertainment and belly laughs.

Parallel coordinates is an interesting take on multivariate data display, but with all due respect to Inselberg, you might do better to learn about it from a different source than this webpage.

Adding to what I said above, if you're taking a serious approach to learning about parallel coordinates, I would very much recommend reading the papers by Inselberg about the subject. For a quick web-based introduction for someone with limited mathematical background, I would try Parallel Coordinates Introduction and Multivariate Analysis Using Parallel Coordinates and suggest trying this applet as a way to interact with a parallel coordinate system.
