Leo's Graph

This graph was sent to me by Byter Leo.

In its humorous simplicity, it has a message that is quite profound: that as we age, some of the things of our youth increasingly disappear.

In looking up this graph on the internet, I came across a comment by someone: “This is also representative of my erections.”

That in turn started me thinking about other things that the graph might depict. In place of “Giving-a-fuck” on the left, one could substitute:
  • Bodily condition
  • Zest for life
  • Partying
  • Belief that one knows everything
It’s a strange thing mystifying, how the human body and mind are designed.

We start off as babies, wetting and soiling ourselves, no teeth, no hair, unable to fend for ourselves, unable to speak and then, in old age, the process reverses itself and we work back towards that condition. The above graph reflects that, a point on the upward graph can be correspondingly found on the downward graph.

"The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important."
- Martin Luther King Jnr
