    Personaly I think it'd be bad if someone looked at that and didn't construe something sex-related from it. It's even called the "S" curve!

    Which raises the question, what is that a graph of? :confused:
    At a guess, I'd say it's a business prediction curve for market penetration.

    I could be wrong though.

    I was getting a bit of a grilling, then the interviewer came out with this;

    Interviewer - So, you're obviously pretty good at science. Do you just do science because it's something you can excel at without having an imagination? Prove to me you have an imagination.

    Me - I reckon you were quite attractive thirty years ago.

    Didn't go down as well as i'd hoped.
