Pop culture data representations

Many people have seen, or even made, drawings or illustrations depicting song lyrics either sincerely or sarcastically. But how many have made accurate data representations of pop culture? I will share with you some examples.

I like the cleverly inactive “Touch this”

Layers upon layers.

Biggie never said anything about it being linear though… he merely asserted that for the function f:money->problems, f'(x) > 0 for all x.

Triangles from folding

Using a square piece of paper, label each side 1 unit long. Find the midpoint of the top side by folding in half. Take the bottom right corner and fold it up to touch the midpoint of the top side. This creates three triangles. ABC, CDE, EFG. Determine the side lengths of all three triangles.

This was a nifty little problem given by Harold Jacobs at Asilomar 2007.
