Bistrostatistics

By | June 10, 2011

Douglas Adams gave us the concept of bistromathics

To wit: “Numbers written on restaurant bills within the confines of restaurants do not follow the same mathematical laws as numbers written on any other pieces of paper in any other parts of the Universe”.

I believe I am witnessing the central nexus of bistrostatistics. Mathematical models that, when presented on Powerpoint slides, do not follow the same laws of logic or reason as anywhere else in the business world.

I attribute this to the large volumes of catered coffee, pre-supplied pastries and packaged tea which create a temporary restaurant field (TRF) which allows the bistromathics to be hosted within the PPT framework.

I think it can be summed as { TRF*PPT(fr)/t + P(stry) * Cf3 } ^ [Reality n+1]
