    The tree is now just 100ft further out in a field. It didn't get turned into something useful.

    The tree is now just 100ft further out in a field. It didn't get turned into something useful.

    On Dec 26th, every "Christmas Tree" got turned into "Last Year's Christmas Tree". A few days/weeks after that, every "Last Year's Christmas Tree" got turned into "Mulch".

    Unlike all the other trees that completed said transition, this tree had an intermediate stage, in which it got turned into something awesome.

There are no data that cannot be plotted on a straight line if the axis are chosen correctly.

Working...
