Cactus status post #6

Seen the actual num­bers (of pages text and cen­time­ters cac­tus respec­tively) you might sus­pect that these are the result of bright New Year’s res­o­lu­tions — how­ever, I am not so much into this kind of exter­nally imposed self-motivation. But time is run­ning and I need to push hard if I want to have a draft ready by the end of this year. Don’t know about the cac­tus’ inter­nal moti­va­tions or whether the plant is just enjoy­ing to con­tem­plate me work­ing and the win­terly sur­round­ing ;o).

  1. Both trends are lin­ear and sig­nif­i­cant:
    Cac­tus grows 2.3 cm/month (r2 = 0.99)
    The­sis grows 14.3 pages/month (r2 = 0.91)
    While the Cac­tus is expected to growth lin­early, the The­sis should asymp­tote at some point.
