There should be a thread. People unironically send me things like this:

Short version: hackathon muppet correlates sectors of the S&P500 with the periodic table of the elements, uses unsupervised clustering; hilarity ensues. I suppose it could be an elaborate troll, considering present day, but I'm pretty sure it isn't.

Feel free to add more hilarious misuses of machine learning, linear regression or whatever.
