Asymptote: A line whose distance to a given curve tends to zero. Or as Charles Palahniuk wrote in Fight Club, on a long enough timeline, the survival rate drops to zero. It's a wonder I've lasted this long.


  1. I've been staring at this a while and you've finally lost me lol ! As Number of Avatars increase, Avatar Age approaches zero?

    1. Sorry, I transposed the axes labels. Avatar Age should be on the horizontal axis and the number of avatars on the vertical axes. Likes this (the curve appears the same):

      Number of Avatars
      Avatar Age

      That's because there are few avatars more than 3,000 days old, but many that only recently joined.
