Created this using Python's BeautifulSoup, pandas, and matplotlib.
This scatterplot shows the New England Patriots' beneficiary yards for seasons 2009 - 2017, relative to the average of each season. The red dots indicate Superbowl wins. Beneficiary yards are the total amount of yards the team gains from a penalty thrown against the opposing team.
This was a personal project I did because I just started learning Python last week and took this as an opportunity to do some application. I found the whole process of putting this together pretty cool, considering nothing was done manually, apart from finding a website with the info I wanted. The motivation behind this was the on-going controversy about the refs showing partiality to the Patriots. For most years in this chart, the New England Patriots were above average in beneficiary yards, with the 2017 season being unusually above average. However, their 2014 season Superbowl win was done with an above average amount of flags thrown against them, and with below below average beneficiary yards. Their 2016 season Superbowl win was done with above average beneficiary yards, but not enough to consider it unusual. Obviously, this data is inconclusive to whether or not the refs do side with the Patriots, but I had a lot of fun learning about Python web scraping and data frames. Thanks for checking this out!
For a subreddit that jokingly calls a CEO "God" or "Santa", /r/pcmasterrace has instituted a mod-only "Advertisement" flair to warn users when a submission they are viewing is clearly an advertisement and not someone who just wants to show a little love.

Just to introduce myself. Here is a link to a video i made of my paid trip to England to the Lush Uk headquarters, the Lush factory tour, a shopping spree at the 29 High Street store, a big party, a spa treatment, and chatting with the creators and president of Lush https://youtu.be/IBC8jpeui5M
One of the most popular songs at the moment is about a guy who moved away but doesn't like that a girl he used to 'see' goes out and has a life. Another is about a girl who won't be controlled by a guy anymore.
Here's a little sing-a-long cover of "Hey There Delilah" a couple of us did last marching band season on the bus headed towards a competition. It's not the best and it falls apart in some places, but it's a testament to just how fun the ukulele can be!

And yet, no one—not a roommate, a friend, or a faculty member—has been able to explain to me why I do not belong with other BYU students. I’m from here, I’m a competitive student, I’m a contributing employee, and I’m willing to pay the price for non-subsidized tuition.
