Statistics Made of Onions: ‘The Proof that We Are Soulmates,’ an Animated Infographic

We fit together so perfectly…What are the odds?

I don’t need any proof that the Doctor and I are kindred souls, but this kind of enviable grand gesture would make Lucille Austero explode. On Valentine’s Day this year, Drake Martinet, associate editor at All things Digital, made an infographic the main ingredient in a very public wedding proposal to girlfriend Stacy Green, Mashable‘s Vice President of Marketing and Communications. His intention: “to quantify just how lucky I am to have Stacy in my life.” Using a clever algorithm, some basic math, and a few playful estimates, he calculated that Stacy’s perfection was statistically impossible. And so the self-proclaimed man of logic became a believer of miracles (an engaged believer of miracles!)

Then three months ago, motion designer Emanuele Colombo asked Drake for permission to illustrate and create an animated version of the infographic.  Voolah, proof that geeks are the best boyfriends.
