    Right on!

  2. ben says:

    A and B are the wrong way round

  3. Chaz says:

    A and B are fine, but … why is the perfect crime so totally un-awesome?

  4. Sean says:

    How do you have ‘negative’ news coverage?

  5. Steve says:

    Depending on the crime, it might be completely awesome.

  6. Ed says:

    Shouldn’t C & D still be above the X-axis?

  7. Alex says:

    C and D aren’t negative, just very low. The axes shown are obviously not the real axes, just showing where they should be.
    Or maybe it’s a slip-up. I don’t know.

    Either way, this is amusing.

  8. (x, why?) says:

    Oddly enough, “The Perfect Crime” just had some news coverage recently! That’s the name of an Off-Broadway show that’s been running in NYC for about 20 years now with the same woman playing the lead for the duration. (She’s also one of the producers, and the night that I saw it — early 90s, I think), she took tickets at the door, too.

    So Susan Boyle is the opposite of the Perfect Crime…

  10. Jonathan says:

    And Swine Flu, sorry, H1N1, is the opposite of good deeds…

  11. sevedra says:

    I can not roll my eyes enough to express how I feel about the Swine Flu.

    Susan Boyle is awesomeness incarnate!

  12. Krunk says:

    The Perfect Crime should be awesome… not anti-awesome.

  13. AB says:

    I am excited at the fact that I have no idea who Susan Boyle is. My quest to be oblivious to the news is a success!

  14. amrit says:

    Sean: The axes don’t have to meet at x=0. They usually do, but they don’t always have to.

    AB: Google her; you won’t regret it.

    I actually did go and see Perfect Crime, the play. I rather liked it actually, though I do marvel at the actress Catherine Russell’s ability to not get bored doing the same thing every day for more than two decades.

    But does Jessica really mean the play by “The Perfect Crime”? The play’s actual title is “Perfect Crime,” not “The Perfect Crime.” The Wikipedia disambiguation page reveals no fewer than seven meanings, so I’m not sure: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_crime_(disambiguation) Or does she mean the concept of the perfect crime?

  15. matt says:

    A & D need to be swapped.

  16. Robert says:

    The perfect crime is where it’s at because if a crime was truly perfect, no one would know it happened, and thus no news coverage.

  17. cooldude says:

    Yes, A & B should be swapped!! XD

  18. Zyl says:

    Susan deserves her high place in awesomeness, imo :)

    btw, it’s a formal mistake to put arrowheads on each side of an axis. One arrowhead per dimension ;) 4 dimensions do not make any sense in this context and arrangement.

  19. Peter says:

    The axes show trends. Since they aren’t labeled, the cross between them has no real significance in terms of positive or negative value, and only serves to show relative magnitude of each point A, B, C and D.

  20. Simon says:

    Don’t you read the X axis before the Y? If so, make more sense to have news coverage on the X… good idea though

  21. articice says:

    if “the perfect crime” is something like “stealing several billions over the internet sitting at home without ever getting caught”, then D should definitely be far more to the left, than C, which itself may even be negative on the x, because they (good deeds) do suck most of the time, because most people don’t deserve something good to be done for them.

  22. articice says:

    Simon, May 13th, 2009 at 5:09 am:

    that is possibly not right,
    we assume that something, that’s more to the left (upper) is more awesome (covered by news);
    so we can add an idea, that something that’s on the the negative side is “not awesome” (is being hidden by the news, as opposed to being covered); the position on the axis is purely neutral (i.e. zero).
