Boromir’s world view

A new project I’ve started together with a good friend where we will interpret music, books and art as colorful charts.

You can follow it on Twitter (https://twitter.com/artsincharts) or Tumblr (artsincharts.tumblr.com) if you want.

Data analysis: Tolkien might have subconsciously given Hobbits even numbered birth years because he loved them

When looking at the birth years of characters in Tolkien’s works it turns out that even numbered years are much more prevalent for Hobbits than other characters. Studies have shown that even numbers are generally seen as good and odd numbers as bad. Is it possible that Tolkien’s love for Hobbits subconsciously affected their birth years? We will never know for sure but the data definitely suggests it did.

Happy 123rd Birthday to J.R.R. Tolkien! Without him we would not have Hobbits to envy for their peaceful way of life, we would not have the word eucatastrophe, and there would not be a family of sea slugs called Smeagol.

Here is LotrProject's interactive map of Middle-earth, allowing you to explore the wonderful world he created, on the web.

P.S. If you want to know more about those sea slugs: http://lotrproject.com/blog/2014/03/23/9-things-related-to-tolkien-you-maybe-didnt-know/
