Rainbow ball of death

22 01 2015


Maria had two tough days wrestling with JMP, analyzing a dataset we didn’t think was that complicated, though it did involve double nesting and two repeated measures.

The rainbow ball of death would spin and spin, sometimes spitting out an answer after 45 minutes (but with either way too many error DFs or none at all), and once whirling away for over 2 hours before Maria just pulled the plug on it.

Luckily, the data pass the ‘bloody obvious test’ with flying colours: graphing them, it’s clear as day that all mink, no matter how big they are, want to feed from as low a height as they can.
