The Six Sigma of Idaho.

Remember this?

30 Rock Six Sigma from Bob Burtowsky on Vimeo.

Apparently, the real Six Sigma is an actual business thing, that tons of businesses do, that has to do with consistency, as demonstrated by the following graphic, which I totally understand which is why I made this screen capture of it from Wikipedia:

It apparently "seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes." (also quoting Wikipedia. I am pretty sure it is the best source of information for topics like these, especially for blogging purposes.) Six Sigma is also apparently really funny. Tina Fey says so.

Well, in order to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects for your future vacation in Idaho, I offer the following Six Sigmas (I know: the Sigma isn't  plural; moreover, the Sigma aren't things and have nothing to do with teamwork, insight, brutality, male enhancement, handshakery or play hard. But I'm pretending that they do, for blogging purposes) of Idaho:

  • reclining
  • indolence
  • cookie eating
  • book reading improvement
  • snackery
  • sleep hard
(Sorry there's no graph or chart, but my improvement of process outputs (see above) does not allow time for this kind of chart-making frippery.)

I am awarding myself a Black Belt in Six Sigma of Idaho. I think I deserve it.


  1. Yes. Winning. And damn the bears. Okay, not really. Bears are awesome. Made more awesome because you can no longer see one peering in your parents' car windows while your mom feeds them marshmallows.

    personally witness more than 30 GB project achieve more than 50% quality improvement and secure mufti million saving for the company.This is the reason why I earn a
    chance to share in Munich Six Sigma Black Belt Course
