Sometimes being a statistic is fun. To celebrate the first-ever World Statistics Day last week, about 150 people showed up at Carnegie Mellon University's Gesling Stadium to become part of a human histogram. People were arranged in rows according to their height. Shorter people lined up on the left, taller people on the right. In each row, height was increased by an inch. The result was a living, breathing bell curve. Participants then held up pieces of colored paper, showing their sex -- blue for male, pink for female. The event was organized by the Statistics Department's Undergraduate Student Advisory Committee at CMU.
