Re: Brexit Delay

Theresa May seems to now want Norn Iron to be treated differently from the rest of the UK, but this is apparently impossible for Scotland. The government has already briefed the First Minister of Gibraltar, but no those of Scotland or Wales. Treated differently in a way that is favourable, or unfav...

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

As Arneb has correctly pointed out by PM, the graph has to do with the Adirondack 46 peaks . These are supposed to be the mountains in the Adirondack range (northeastern New York) that are over 4,000 feet high, but according to the most recent survey, four of the 46 are actually a little below 4,000...

Re: The Corrupt-A-Wish Game

You have time to do these things; there's not much else to do in prison.

I wish property in Singapore were as inexpensive as property in Penang.

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

Dr. Arneb has provided a completely correct description of the graph by PM. As he has indicated non-desire to post the next graph, we can do one of the following: a) Continue to play, and allow someone else to figure it out. b) Post Arneb's description publicly, and then allow someone else to post t...

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

x values are between c. 3800 and 5300 something The x value actually determines which points get included in the graph. If the x value falls outside of this range, then the observation is not part of this set of 46. The range was actually supposed to be slightly more restrictive, but some measureme...

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

The numbers on the two axes are in the same units, although obviously they are measuring different things, since the graph does not show the identity function.
