Statistically Significant Other





I discovered the above comic recently and found it quite humorous due to its correlation with my life. You see, Robyn and I have been a couple for 1 year and 4 days. (We decided that we were going to date exclusively on March 2nd of last year.) So, she has been my significant other for that long. However, I had taken her on a number of dates before that, but she remained unaware that I was pursuing her. When I told her that I wanted to become exclusive she was actually a little surprised. I only wish that I had used my white board at that time to prove to her that she was already my statistically significant other.

  1. Haha. I loved the comic. You may not have used the whiteboard to prove anything to Robyn, but I'm 99% sure the whiteboard was still used in the process.

  4. I appreciate the statistics, however, I feel the need to point out that correlation is not causation. I also would like to mention that if we needed to come closer to discovering causation we could do some serious econometrics and hopefully come up with a statistically significant outcome. That is all.
