The Wrong Stuff - 間違ったもの


The Wrong Stuff(間違ったもの)

幽霊: oooOOOOOOoooo Build a spaceship out of bricks! oooooOOOOOOOOoo
 (ぉぉおおおぉぉ レンガで宇宙船を作れ! ぉぉぉおおおおぉ)

男: No! Go away!

The Spruce Goose, the Project Habakkuk Ice Ship, and the Trojan Horse were all work of the Material Phantom, a ghost that wanders the Earth convincing engineers to make giant vehicles out of the wrong stuff.

Alt-text: The phantom found Edward Everett Hale a century too early; by the time we invented satellites, the specifics of his 'brick moon' proposal were dismissed as science fiction.

Compact Graphs - コンパクトなグラフ


Compact Graphs(コンパクトなグラフ)

Variable 1: X Axis(変数1:X軸)
Variable 2: Y Axis(変数2:Y軸)

Variable 1: Hue(変数1:色相)
Variable 2: Label(変数2:ラベル)

Design tip: You can make your graphs more space-efficient by using hue and label for the first two variables, instead of only turning to them once you've used up the X and Y axes.

ALt-text: People may complain about readability, but even with jpeg compression, extracting the data points is usually computationally feasible if there aren't too many of them.
