It seems that the Rambo graph is based on data from this article:
http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/sunday/commentary/la-op-mueller20jan20,1,2456255.story?page=1

And in case anyone is wondering: unlike what (I thought) the graph implied, Rambo in fact didn't manage to kill people while neither wearing nor not wearing a shirt. (The 'total kills' bar apparently includes kills by people other than Rambo.)

Also, the article contains some other relevant data:

I feel like Liza and I should be graphing this and checking it for convergence...

I wasn't going to say anything, but since the thread has gotten this far I might as well. Who is this Rambo person and why are there statistics on how many people he kills per minute?

And yes, I agree that the data should be checked for convergence.

I believe any and all answers could be found in the wikipedia article.

That picture is, at best, very disturbing.

I think we agreed that the symbol meant samurai. Also, that is in fact not the guy who gave me citizenship. He was the court bailiff who just happened to be there. The line to get your picture taken with the actual judge was too long so I settled for this guy.

Yeah but Emily did do quite a bit of work to make that Rambo action happen.

And for all you know, there could have been a Princess Amidala/Padme switcheroo being pulled on you, and that guy was the judge and the judge was the bailiff. You know, for national security reasons...with all those terrorists around.

Hey, I'll take any photoshopping opportunity I can get. Not to mention the hilarity of the notion that (over-sized-head) Rambo himself was the one who gave Liza citizenship. Or at least posed for a picture with her after someone else did.
