+Jeffrey Horner & +Chris when you all did analysis with UltraSignup finish time data was that manually assembled or is there an easier way to pull the data? Api or csv repo?

I was thinking about this: https://github.com/fonnesbeck/ultra_race_results

I honestly try to be respectful of SAS. But, um. WTF does this mean?

The amount of poop in my kid's diaper does not refer to the volume, but rather how expansive it is.

Yeah, sounds stupid doesn't it?

They had me at "old school point and click prop trader." Great article on how one trader in London did... or maybe didn't... cause the flash crash.

My Windows 7 VM running in VMware Fusion on Mac was grinding to a halt and would develop UI lag of up to a second or two if the VM had been running for a couple of days. Without changing the OS at all I removed VM Ware tools and imported the VM into Parallels. It runs great with no lag at all. It feels like a new machine. Confirming my suspicions that virtual machines are simply magical and mysterious.

I stumbled on a household income graph for a zip code in West TN and I was struck by how peculiar the shape of the distribution is. Clearly non-Gaussian. Bimodal? Trimodal? Uniform up to 100K then a different uniform above 100K? Distributions like this make modeling things difficult sometimes.
