Two more from Fisher and Haldane

So, previously I introduced you to Darwin Eats Cake's two newest characters, R. A. Fisher's Pipe and J. B. S. Haldane's Mustache. Well, the comedy duo have provided two more installations of their series, tentatively entitled, "Stuff Sitting in Jars on a Shelf, Talking."

I would not necessarily have predicted this, but as it turns out, Fisher's Pipe has a really juvenile sense of humor.

It's sort of sad, really.

  1. I cannot imagine Fisher making that elementary mistake of Latin. The singular of data is dat.

  2. I thought proper usage was that results that were far away were "data," while results that were nearby were "disa."
