Caption Contest Winner is…

Posted to Contests  |  Nathan Yau

While we’re on the subject of contests, lets not forget the epic battle for best caption. Thank you to everyone who participated. All the entries were great and really entertaining, but unfortunately, there could only be one winner. The winner of Stephen Baker’s The Numerati is – Mike for his caption (above), “Severity of Crash vs. Length of Ramp.” Congratulations, Mike! Expect an email from me soon. (Ricardo, if it’s any consolation, my wife liked yours the best :).

I put a little something together for everyone else. For everyone who entered – this is for you. I hope you all like it. The darker ones are the honorable mentions.
