Uncodable cases:

Subjects Codename ミリエル and ロラン spent their alloted 4 hours with the duckling, but did not seem to be “petting” it. Additionally, they stated that they would be willing to kill an innocent “for research” which we could not gauge against our scale for satisfaction.

Subject Codename カラム returned our incentive survey but failed to appear for the follow-up session. Therefore we lack his duck-petting results.

Subject Codename パリス suggested that he would kill an innocent if “it were the way of the sword.”

“And if there is one last thing I would have you know before we reach these final pages, it’s that sometimes, no matter how hard we try, no matter how hard we want it to be so, sometimes there is no such a thing as happy ending.” - T.J. Klune, Burn

The ‘mod’ in the expression above comes from modular (or clock) arithmetic. It’s a system in maths where  the numbers jump back to zero after a certain integer. Clocks work mod 12 as the moment you reach 12, you’re actually back to 0. 

For a bit more clarity, examples might be nice:

4 ≡ 1 (mod 3);

7 ≡ 1 (mod 3);

14 ≡ 2 (mod 12) and so on.

Anyhow, the story behind this wacky graph is that my friend was looking to practice his graph sketching skills and this function somehow popped into my mind.

Lo behold, I plugged it into Wolfram Alpha and got an awesome graph. The moral of the story? Play with Wolfram Alpha!
