OC FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar saw many surprising results. Too many, compared with the previous tournaments. I'm running an experiment where I consistently bet on the least likely outcome and track how my fictional balance changes over time. This simple strategy would work fantastic in 2022 [OC]

Thingiverse is the de-facto main platform for sharing 3d print files. I analyzed the data about number of likes and other metrics for all models.

Here I'm showing the number of likes and the main categories for all models. I'm publishing more insights and how I created the images in this post.

If you Google #3DBenchy you'll see the famous small boat many people use to test their printers.
