R tee-shirt

I gave my introduction to the R course in a crammed amphitheatre of about 200 students today. Had to wear my collectoR teeshirt from Revolution Analytics, even though it only made the kids pay attention for about 30 seconds… The other few “lines” that worked were using the Proctor & Gamble “car 54” poster and calling bootstrap “Statistics for dummies”, but I have trouble every year in getting the students interested in the topic (simulation) until…I introduced a (dummy) finance example of computing option prices. Sad!
