7 sets Venn Diagram
"Out of this seven sets Venn Diagram (who's the author?) I created my own isomorphic version (meaning that I kept the same topology) trying to balance surface areas, so each piece has a similar visual importance.

Inspired by Newton's theories on light and color spectrum I decided to use colors rather than numbers or letters to identify each basic set, though I didn't use the same colors Newton did; mine are equidistant in the hue circle.

I named the colors using this table, in each case identifying the closest and borrowing his name.

Yes, it's a Mandala, and it has two different sides (drag it to check!)"

Whaling Songs | HiLobrow
"Imagine, if you will, a Venn Diagram composed of the following sets: Coders. Musicians. Marine Biologists. Paul Winter. Leonard Nimoy. Your high school English teacher. And Ishmael.

The sole resident of the intersecting set would be, of course, a whale.

Or perhaps the whale’s trace, in the form of a song."

Thought of a Day
"People have been passing it around as "Venn diagram of the day"…sad, because it didn't show up on Monday. I first saw it last Thursday, pointed out by Reddit link…original image…is an imgur upload with no attribution at all. (…If you know who created this thing, please throw me a tweet.)

…now it's been linked by Gruber & Chart Porn & Huffington & Laughing Squid & probably other places but I'm tired of Google for a few seconds. Like I said, it's sad, & one reason is that the joke is funny but it fails to get at the real problem w/ this whole TSA nonsense, which is that it's nonsense. It serves no purpose except to make air travel slower & more uncomfortable.

But the true sadness is that this image isn't a Venn diagram, as you can easily see:

Venn diagrams map out entities. That is, things; in this case, people. A region is a set of people. There may be people in that central area, but I doubt it. (If you are a TSA prostitute with a medical degree, please throw me a tweet.)"

FINALLY: The Difference between Nerd, Dork, and Geek Explained by a Venn Diagram
"To all of you nerds and geeks who–like me–have been unfairly and inaccurately labeled “dorks,” only to then exhaustively explain the differences among the three to a more-than-skeptical offender, I say:
