May Contain Blueberries

the sometimes journal of Jeremy Beker

Go look at this cartoon (I will stipulate before anyone says anything that this post will have less meaning to the non-CS people in the audience, sorry).

What isn’t fair about this? I mean the joke is funny, I agree. The problem is that given that I am taking Analysis of Algorithms this semester all I can think about when I read it is how one should solve the problem. My gut reaction is that it is NP-complete; kind of a sick social version of the traveling salesman problem, maybe. Or to make the obvious bad math/CS joke, it might be more appropos to use the Clique problem as a analogy.

Have a nice day.
