xkcd is so consistently excellent. One of the true, daily small pleasures of life.

Obviously baseball is far too important to mess around with in that fashion, but in sports I only follow casually give me an arbitrary narrative over an investigation of truth every time!

90% of those are terrible jokes. The rest are just nonsense.

It doesn't just work for sports commentary...

If you ever work for a company that hasn't yet learned that six sigma is the greatest con in the history of certification cons -- a good random number generator and capability to deploy certain formulas against them to produce nice, neat curves is the key to happiness.

I have nothing against six sigma tenets, but I've found quite a few people "certified" for six sigma who are very bad at it.
