Actually, this shows the concept reasonably well. The scale is conflict level, and terrorism ranges in the lower end, but with indefinite upper and lower bounds to where it falls on the spectrum.

Usually the graph has more levels labeled, like peacekeeping, show of force, limited strikes, theater level conflict, etc.

I quite like this one. Make it so that you can tell the colours apart and it becomes useful. Using the slope to indicate change is pretty cool.

They're semi-fine with trans people like Miranda Yardley who spend all their time writing about how transgenderism is evil and trans women aren't really women. Basically the same as how the homophobic right was fine with Milo, for a time at least.

There's an irony in TERFs being okay with Miranda Yardley, who is every bit the abusive boogeyman they claim all trans women are.

Yes but also no. I used to be a biologist working in the mining industry, but gently caress no would I call myself a miner.

The diagram is dumb as hell, but split it into tech worker/support staff and let's see how that looks.

Yeah it's asking a lot of the viewer (and the form is going to work only for a few types of things) but once I "got" this it was okay. Since you're asking so much anyway you might as well represent the raw AMOUNT of an activity with (say) the length or width of the line. Also it's kind of weird to represent peak time by circle location and then put a real rough notion of the distribution by how much of the line is on which side of the circle... rather just have something like density plots, though it would take up a lot more space.

The rest in that post, though, woof.

Well for an FPS comparison that actually makes sense (since it's going to be an average over time). It's just that a graph is completely unnecessary if you only have two data points.

Also the difference between 68 and 69 FPS would be completely imperceptible.

I can't get over how in 200 years the art of graphing data seems to have gotten worse. (I realize it's because so many people are doing it and not all of them know what they are doing.) But it's great how the novelty of the concept to his audience guided him into making the graphs as clear as possible, with those colours, labels and axes.
