Re: This or That

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...

Re: What sports teams do you support?

I suspect Argentina will be put to the sword. Also, just checked, the two teams drew in 1985, but Argentina have never won. A draw means only South Africa can stop New Zealand. A win (for New Zealand) means no one can. A win (for Argentina) means South Africa can still win, and Argentina possibly c...

I am having a rather difficult time finding anyone who is airing it here, which is a bit odd, as it is the more important match.

Re: What sports teams do you support?

South Africa 23 - 12 Australia, final.

Crucially, South Africa fail to get the bonus point, which means New Zealand can end the tournament in a few hours by winning against Argentina, with or without the bonus point.
