I’m having more fun putting random stuff into graphs than I care to admit, but it’s my prerogative, and I can do what I want, so ha. In something of a Data Underload, special edition, I played with famous science fiction quotes for Sci Fi Wire. My favorite is obviously from Back to the Future, the greatest movie of all time. Check out the rest at Sci Fi.

Haha well my friend don’t worry, whenever I find myself in a predicament, be it under the bonnet of a friend’s car, or inside the tower of a pc etc. if I have no idea what I’m doing I usually tell the naive person there is something wrong with the flux capacitor. That usually buys me some time or makes them crack up laughing hehe.

Thanks. Thanks a lot. Another morning lost.
I went for the sketchy-graph look:
Sorry, sorry, SORRY to geek out on a detail… but I’m pretty sure that “Where we’re going” is actually 2010, not 2015. I think he was travelling 25 years into the future, not 30. Which also means we should all keep out eyes out for the Doc. He should be here this summer.
Sorry, but you will have to wait until October 21, 2015.
Ahhhhhh right. Dang. I was misled by the scene in the parking lot near the beginning of the film where says he plans on going “25 years into the future.”
blasphemy :). 30 years forward, 30 years back.
I agree, Back to the Future is one of my favorite movies. the sequels were rather lame.
You made a large assumption by drawing a line chart, though your graph fits right in at Graph Jam. All we know is the need for roads in 1985 and 2015, so you should use a column chart with columns only at these years.
good. then i got the right audience.
