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...

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!

The number 46 will definitely strike a note in the right community, but it is quite possible that no one here (other than myself) is familiar with that community.

Re: Guess what the Graph Shows!

The units are one of the most fundamental and commonly used physical quantities. They are not metric, although the graph would look exactly the same, except for the numbers.

It has nothing to do with prices; these are very physical measurements.

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.

Yes, I agree. I very much liked it.

Cockney Stalin took some getting used to, but since he died early on, that was only an issue for a short time.

Re: Death of Stalin

Finally saw it. Glad I did. Even if it was CGI, I liked the Red Square scene, as I was there a few weeks back. Beria was just creepy. The incompetent Malenkov was hilarious. Got to see Brezhnev in the theatre audience for a few seconds at the end. Zhukov was a little too “Lord Flashheart” for my lik...
