  4. wtf is this gayness

    Comment by James — November 3, 2008 @ 9:49 am

  5. So, when Google and YouPorn launched, the internet had two different values for usefulness simultaneously?
    This graph sucks.

    Comment by sigh — November 3, 2008 @ 9:50 am

  6. looks like some asshole figured out how to upload a fucking picture of his 8 year old kids drawings that some retard came up with…

  7. it’s a joke assholes.

  8. There is no reason to insult this guy. It’s supposed to be a joke not taken seriously. You people make me sad.

  9. This graph is fail. YouPorn FTW!

    Comment by Morbo — November 3, 2008 @ 10:01 am

  10. This graph should represent a function, but it does not!

  11. this is the coolest graph EVER!

  12. Dear “sigh”,

    The bottom axis is time.

    Regards,

    Everyone else.

    Comment by Jordan — November 3, 2008 @ 10:03 am

  13. try not taking it so seriously and maybe you’ll figure it out. Google launched –> usefulness goes up and up. YouPorn launched –> usefulness goes down and down. Get it? YouPorn lowers the usefulness because…oh, f it.

  14. Dear “Jordan”,

    You may want to review grade 9 math.

    Comment by dicks — November 3, 2008 @ 10:08 am

  15. Appreciate it for its humour and insight!!! That is piss funny!!! Nice work!!! What i dont like, is the school-teacher-mentality of these negative comments who seem to be more preoccupied with “Oh, it is not pretty, so I’ll ignore the message/humour”. Gee, its lucky you didn’t spell anything wrong or the world might have stopped.. or worse… it could have been turned into a Seinfeld episode.

    Comment by Bob — November 3, 2008 @ 10:15 am

  16. Dear “jordan,”

    “sigh” knew the bottom axis was time. he’s referring to how the points at t = google release and t = youporn release are both closed, meaning the usefulness value exists at both of those points. that means at the same time, the usefulness has two values. one of the points should be an open circle. either way, it’s still a funny graph.

    Regards.

    Comment by kyle — November 3, 2008 @ 10:15 am

  17. It should have been “Productivity”, not “Usefulness”.

    Comment by anon — November 3, 2008 @ 10:17 am

  18. technically… sigh is correct, since one of the 2 points at t=”google launch” and at t=”youporn launch” should be ‘open’ / a hollow circle. otherwise, at either of those two points in time, there would be TWO values for the usefulness of the internet, which, as pf points out, does not represent a function.

    Comment by BS — November 3, 2008 @ 10:18 am

  19. To Jordan: the bottom axis being time doesn’t negate the fact that there are 2 values for USEFULNESS at a single point in time. /me recommends a wikipedia search for “algebraic function”

    Comment by gravisman — November 3, 2008 @ 10:18 am

  20. @Brian

    No they’re just saying it’s not funny, and being the nerds they most probably are, were pointing out the flaws of his hand-drawn graph.

    Comment by ... — November 3, 2008 @ 10:22 am

  21. Dear sigh,

    Just because a graph doesn’t express a function doesn’t mean it sucks.

    Dear Jordan,

    If the dots are filled, those points are considered on the graph. If the dots are empty, they are not.

    Please don’t speak for us.

    Regards,

    Comment by Everyone else — November 3, 2008 @ 10:26 am

  22. Thanks for the comments guys!

    Next time will have one point an open circle. //remembering back to function class at school

    @anon: Yeah, probably should have been “Productivity”.

    Comment by jaseadams — November 3, 2008 @ 10:34 am

  23. thats hilarious- the funniest thing I’ve seen today

    Comment by Sean King — November 3, 2008 @ 10:52 am

  24. So what does the derivative of this graph tell us?

    Comment by Anonymous — November 3, 2008 @ 11:01 am

  25. I guess a lot of people here don’t understand jokes. These people are waaaaaaay too OCD. And yes, I do undersand that “waaaaaaay” is not a real work in case those same people try to correct me.

  26. Oops, real *word*.

    Comment by Anhongymous — November 3, 2008 @ 11:14 am

  27. Dear everyone else,

    It is a function, just not a continuous function.

  28. This is funny – laughed a lot about this – especially since I just watched a video on YouPorn for relaxation reasons :-)

    Comment by Holger — November 3, 2008 @ 11:22 am

  29. Obviously, you have to have mastered grade school math to have gotten the joke. Sorry to those who don’t understand a simple x,y graph.

    Comment by Zeigy — November 3, 2008 @ 11:25 am

  30. it seems that somehow youporn has had a negative impact on the good that google brought to the internet…

    Comment by neester — November 3, 2008 @ 11:27 am

  31. In soviet russia, youporn was launched BEFORE google!

    Comment by Belinda — November 3, 2008 @ 11:32 am

  32. Dear Everyone Else who is smart,
    It doesn’t pass the vertical line test. Not a function.

    Comment by smarter than everyone else who is smart — November 3, 2008 @ 11:37 am

  33. dear ‘smarter than everyone else who is smart’,
    if you read comment number 10 you will see that you weren’t the first to point this out
    comments 15, 17 and 18 further re-iterate this
    not only do you suck balls ‘smarter than everyone else who is smart’ but you were beat to it by somebody called ‘poopface’
    you suck doubly
    yours sincerely,
    -smarter than smarter than everyone else who is smart

    Comment by Frank — November 3, 2008 @ 12:04 pm

  36. This definitely fails the vertical line test….=(

    Comment by SomeGuy — November 3, 2008 @ 12:37 pm

  37. For all you vertical line test believers:

    Google/Wikipedia search “implicit functions”…

    For your enlightenment:

    I present the implicit function:
    x^2+y^2 = r (Radius)
    Its a circle. Fails your line test but its a function.

    The point: Who CARES (and how one can over use: the semi:colon)

    Comment by omg people — November 3, 2008 @ 1:12 pm

  38. Some of you people are so stupid its obvious what it means if you dont understand it then you shouldnt have access to internet, especially if your at work like me!

    BTW, Ive never seen youporn this is the first ive heard of it… ill be checking it out once I get home. :)

    Comment by D — November 3, 2008 @ 1:16 pm

  39. Its wrong, google and youporn should be switched

    Comment by tyler D — November 3, 2008 @ 1:58 pm

  41. If you think this graph sucks, you do not understand it. Its called Usefulness of the Internet when google launched it became very useful but dropped because every one started watching porn in youporn.

  45. Hahahahahaha

    Comment by Zuluu — November 3, 2008 @ 2:47 pm

  46. Sigh.
    Read the graph, AGAIN.

    AVERAGE is sum of components over number of components.
    Google represents a “large proportion” of that “sum” agreed?

    Therefore when Google is established, the AVERAGE usefulness of internet jumps to a new high, as the proportion of it is actually useful… but why? ( useful for what? )

    When youporn is introduced however, Google, the “large proportion” suddenly becomes less useful, ( for what? :P ) and therefore the average is much lower.

    The “curve” represents switching from resorting to google, to youporn. :P

    That’s my analysis anyway. :D

    Comment by derek shirtington — November 3, 2008 @ 4:35 pm

  50. You might want to reconsider this graph… it’s not unreasonable to argue that much of what people use the internet for today is possible precisely because of the early popularity of internet porn. Consider: who needed high speed connections and good graphics in 1996? Who was downloading lots of high-quality video in the early days of the http protocol? You don’t need that stuff to get Alice in Wonderland from Gutenberg.org, folks….
    I don’t know if the smut crowd is really pushing so many envelopes these days, but if you enjoy youtube today, it’s because someone wanted dirty pictures ten years ago.

    Comment by Jon Kiparsky — November 3, 2008 @ 5:00 pm

  51. @34:
    From the Wikipedia article you recommended:
    Not every equation R(x,y) = 0 has a graph that is the graph of a function, the circle equation being one prominent example. Another example is an implicit function given by x – C(y) = 0 where C is a cubic polynomial having a “hump” in its graph. Thus, for an implicit function to be a true function it might be necessary to use just part of the graph.

    Implicit functions do not negate the vertical line test. The equation of a circle, as that wiki article states, is not a function.

    Also, semi-colons look like this: ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

  79. Ha ha how true!You have to add a few more. They all run pretty high in the ranks. Most searched keywords in the last 24 hours (source is the NY times) number 39 is sex.

    You all need to relax and learn to laugh a little more. You seem a little uptight. So what if the world’s going to hell and a joke ranks high.
