    It also does not make sense. Either Shannon and Elizabeth are Pre Enthusiats or not. There can be no overlap.

    Just one of the many problems I have with it. I'm a logician by education and profession. Work with Venn Diagrams. This diagram is about as meaningful as an infant scrambling magnetic letters on a refigerator.

    Technically, one of them could be an enthusiast and the other one not.

    Is there an inside joke I'm missing about the diagram or is it really that poor of an attempt at humor? Alas, I am responding to the thread anyway...

    I also enjoyed it.

    Pointless, but amusing.

    funny. but shouldn't the "use the NASCAR app" group fall completely within the "avid NASCAR fans" group? ie only those that are avid fans would actually use the app?

    I am accounting for those who use the app but dont really care about NASCAR.

    I have also created a more accurate Venn Diagram which includes more recent findings. (Big thanks to ronlongo)

    There will always be "bi-curious" Formula 1 fans.


    Here's my Venn diagram attempt at explaining whatever Ed Colligan meant by the Pre's target market - the infamous "Fat Middle" - which I posted here early on in the frenzy trying to make sense of it all.



    Finally, if you want the pinnacle of social charting, Venn diagram or otherwise, you have to check out Indexed.

    I'm a NASCAR fan. Most of the country is a NASCAR fan.

    It's still funny.

    And if Shannon Elizabeth and Elisha Dushku are both Pre Enthusiasts, then I thing Ronlongo was not entirely correct. If they both are Pre Enthusiasts then it is, technically, logically correct to put their circle wholly within the Enthusiasts circle, but in that case their separate circle adds no information to the diagram. A separate circle for the two of them that overlapped the Enthusiasts circle, thereby identifying them as Enthusiasts, but also providing additional information outside the Enthusiasts circle (I can't imagine what that information might be) would seem more useful.
