I work at Tableau Software whose motto is “Tableau helps people see and understand their data.” But it can also be used artistically or even frivolously, such as the 3D rotatable cow I created a visualization of:

Visualizing Major League Baseball: 2001-2010
Visualizing Major League Baseball: 2001-2010

Use the sliders to rotate the cow over different axes.

Annoying Answers for the Answerer While Playing 20 Questions

Image

Perhaps you want answers that are difficult for questioners to guess, extending the game as long as possible:

  • Colors: Yellow
  • Sensations: Hunger
  • Emotions: Happiness
  • A guaranteed win on only the 20th question, the question that is the answer:
    The answer to the 20th question.

If you want to be as annoying as possible:

  • A guaranteed lose with recursion (parentheses used instead of quotes to avoid the quotes within quotes within quotes problem):
    (Nothing you can guess, including (Nothing you can guess), including (Nothing you can guess, including (Nothing you can guess)) including (Nothing you can guess, including (Nothing you can guess), including (Nothing you can guess, including (Nothing you can guess)), ad nauseum)

If you’re sick of playing 20 questions and want to end the game as soon as possible:

  • Answers to almost always asked questions:
    Everything bigger than a breadbox, All things that animals, vegetables or minerals
  • The question that is the answer:
    The answer to the 1st question.
