Batter Up! by Geographist in MonsterHunter
[–]Geographist[S] 11 points12 points13 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Haha yeah, I was not prepped for Deviljho. I was doing the quest right after Teostra, and the pickle was being a pest the whole time. Least I could do was try to mount him... and grand slam a grimalkyne in the process!

Landslides Have Seasonality: Activity Varies Throughout the Year [OC] by Geographist in dataisbeautiful
[–]Geographist[S] 1 point2 points3 points 6 days ago* (0 children)
Good observation! Rainfall is a major trigger for landslides, and rainfall is more frequent at lower latitudes. The satellites that measure rainfall focus on the low-to-mid latitudes (you'll notice a straight line where the data ends around the Mongolia-Russia border: data is not collected north from there (and similar for the southern hemisphere; the poles receive little rain and are not covered in the model)).

Alllllmost... but a key aspect of this model is that landslides don't happen equally wherever mountains are. The dynamic changes that happen with regard to weather and the composition of the soil - and things that impact the soil - is the big factor.
There are plenty tall, mountainous regions that do not see as many landslides as less rugged places that are more susceptible to the soil breaking loose.
While landslides do happen in NZ and W. Europe, the maps focus on Central + South America and Asia, as that is where, by far, landslides have been deadliest.
[–]Geographist[S] 6 points7 points8 points 6 days ago (0 children)
It definitely does! In addition to rainfall, it uses topography (slope), deforestation/burning, recent road construction, bedrock strength, and local tectonics.
Each of these can influence the likelihood of a landslide, so all are monitored in the model.

The Office: Relationship between the IMDb rating and amount each character speaks [OC] by FourierXFM in dataisbeautiful
[–]Geographist 2 points3 points4 points 6 days ago (0 children)
This is really neat, but I would strongly suspect what characters say matters more than how much they speak. Especially on a show like The Office where a silent look at the camera can be the most powerful moment in a scene.
I'd also wonder if it isn't how much or what any individual character says, but the contrast between characters. So who the characters are speaking to, not just how much, might represent some factor that actually matters more in IMDB ratings.
All of that could be wrong, of course. I am not a tv-showologist.
