Comment(by josefpktd):

 linregress needs exactly two data series (2 arrays or 2 columns or 2 rows)

 docstring:

 {{{
     Parameters
     ----------
     x, y : array_like
         two sets of measurements.  Both arrays should have the same
 length.
         If only x is given, then it must be a two-dimensional array where
 one
         dimension has length 2.  The two sets of measurements are then
 found
         by splitting the array along the length-2 dimension.
 }}}

 but this could be checked in the code and raise a more informative value
 error instead, also *args is not an informative signature
