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.

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.
“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.
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.
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
-smarter than smarter than everyone else who is smart
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.
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.

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: ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

wow, i spend excessive time trying understand blog trends to get traffic to my blog, and this guy gets hits talking about gdamn porn site. Project in the works: much like the “DIGG” button im working on the “Slap Writer” feature for wordpress, it simply shocks the shit out of bloggers that post useless stuff! whos in? and jeeez james, calm down.
Yeah … those who suddenly be a teacher here – should stop their comments then … this is not a math class. We are looking at a simple joke that should end with ..”Haha … datz funny!” and not with,”WTF … he is a dumb ass in Math!”
What is the definition of ‘pouprose’ is this a racist term with which I am not yet familiar. Evidently the graph serves one ‘pouprose’ (perhaps it’s a cross between a flower and a mammal) a source of heated debate. Well I would type more but you porn calls and then spattering of redtube.
If anyone ever wanted proof that the internet was owned, run and operated exclusively by nerds it’d be the comments on this post. Mathmatical snobbery and personnal offense at the idea that porn is maybe not as good a way to spend your day as, I dunno, reality. Tell the lot to fuck off, or you’ll tell their mammies, my Aussie friend
