  1. “Parlez vous Stata?”

    I’m about 30% certain it’s written “Parlez-vous”. But no, je ne parle pas Stata.

    “Do you have 2 to 10 hours a week to contribute to a crowdsourced social research project over the next four months?”

    Does it involve dressing up as a sexy cheerleader, sultry waitress and/or singing “Never Gonna Give You Up” in an ’80s video?

    “Do you have a background in statistics, econometrics or actuarial science?”

    I read the last one as “actual science”, which makes it sound funnier and much more accurate. You should probably change it to that.

    “Are you Daniel Ortega or Ivan Martínez?”

    No. I’m firmly against raping children and/or turning the world into a communist dictatorship.

    Wait, was this a poll or a job interview?

  2. Si no fuera porque ya tengo un internship para este verano me encantaría hacerlo. Tomé Econometría , la 314. Una clase muy conocida en Reed ;). Se me vienen los recuerdos de las largas noches sufriendo con stata.

        Now, seriously, if you need the usual help for data visualization, it’ll be my pleasure to do the motion charts.
