Egg Timer

From guts to data driven decision making

Source: Wikipedia, License: CC0 There is a wonderful cartoon by Loriot, a German humorist (1923 - 2011), about a couple sitting at a breakfast table, arguing about how to boil a four-and-a-half minute egg. The answer appears simple, but husband and wife argue about how to measure the time using experience, feelings and expert judgment (wife) or a clock (husband). The whole sketch is hilarious and is often regarded as a fine observation of miss-communication.
