Bumper sticker I saw last week that got a chuckle out of me:

"WANTED: Schroedinger's cat - Dead AND Alive"

Was riding around White Rock Lake and came across some rather large pelicans looking rather out of place this far from the ocean.  Hard to get a bead on how big they are til you look at them in comparison to the ducks and such around them.

From the "huh, never seen that before" file.   Pickup and trailer being pulled by walk behind loader.  (background: Truck had stalled in the intersection behind, and I happened to be lucky enough to be stopped at the light.)

The best Dilbert yet. This is way too close to the mark on decision making processes from collected data.

You can always count on Scott Adams to cut to the chase brilliantly. 

A big part of my personal evolution is driven by the learning that data is not the problem. It is the way Senior Leaders think that is the problem. Or more precisely it is the way they imagine the possibilities that is the problem.

Our leaders do feel that data is important, yet they don't use it. So why are so many analysts and IT folks and big data initiatives are still funded? The last pane of the comic explains that. Even if you want to ignore the data, you want it to be very very accurate. 

The comic is funny. It is painfully true.

OK, this was awesome/hilarious.  Better than the original.  Well done, and probably the best advertising I've seen in 10 years or more.

An elusive Double Rainbow pic I took back in Sept 2010.  Lost track of it until I found it again today.
