Hi Jessica,

I'm new to your blog.
You're amazing ... keep up the good work.

How true of PPT slides.

Season's Greetings.

Hey, does this mean
if there are more powerpoint slides there will be more members sleeping (or) If there are more members sleeping we can slip in more powerpoint slides?

Jessica, I've been lurking for a while, but this one brought me out of the shadows. You're brilliant and consistently hilarious.

Have you ever noticed the inverse relationship between importance of meeting vs. number of attendees?

For example: a company-wide all-hands vs. your boss saying "IN my office, door shut. NOW."

Keep it up. You're joining my blogroll very very soon.

Ramki makes a good point, your X and Y axis are the wrong way round on a lot of these graphs. X should be number of slides, and as this increases (tending right from 0) the Y value should increase. Although the graph will look similar, I was taught this as the correct way to present a unidirectional correlation.

Regarding above, I believe she's reversing the independant and dependant variables on purpose because the independant is always on the Y axis for all the cards I've seen. Do you think that most people read the graphs from left to right, reading the Y axis first? It really annoys me, because most anyone whos taken math has been taught to read the X axis first and treat it as the ind. variable.

Sometimes I don't know what makes me laugh harder - the index cards or the reader comments!

Oh my, this is absolute genius. I run powerpoint at my church for sermons along with a few friends and I just had to show all of them this.

Let's just say that laughter could be heard for hours.
