That's plotting frequency of non-uniformly distributed shelf lives as the independent variable against temperature, which is like three different kinds of gently caress up. Temperature should be on the bottom and shelf life should be a linear scale on the side, with a scatter/line graph instead of column.

E: actually no bars don't necessarily mean frequency, it's saying that an MRE with a shelf life (which we can change at will) of X months will cause the surrounding area to be Y°.

Its literally correlation =/= causation.jgp.

It probably the best example I could point to off the top of my head for how the correlation between two variable stays the same when you swap the x and y axis, and why that's usually a terrible idea.

They really should have had shelf life as the Y axis because your brain interprets larger bar as better, when on this graph its the smallest bar that has the largest shelf life.

The bigger problem is that the shelf life measure is not on a linear scale, logarithmic scale or anything so any conclusions you make on the relationship between shelf life and temperature based on the shape of the graph is bullshit.

No, we are training our allies to help defeat Russian-backed forces fighting against the central government. Civilians get caught in the crossfire but the Contra arent the ones executing prisoners of war and violating the Geneva conventions.

"Anarcho-Capitalism" is the new name for Feudalism, and his nickname is Libertarianism (which he totally stole from Left-anarchists that like Marxist thought like Chomsky).
That's it. It's a system of lords waving their 'property rights' around to make a new system of peasantry, except this time it has a thoroughly flawed economic philosophy posing as a science to back up its 'rights'.



While the others are pretty loving pandering ("look! graphs are cool! You know Venn-Diagrams!"), this one is the one I take the most issue with.
Venn-diagrams are for qualitative phenomenology. This is inherently quantitative.
I don't care if I sound like a fedora, this diagram still is the least necessary.

The political maps thread had a long discussion on the many ways in which this was a better graph then the Florida one, but tldr, don't turn your histogram into a line graph, and don't flip your charts y axis upside down without a drat good reason.

It's supposed to look like blood dripping down for dramatic effect. No one in the political maps thread figured that out?

The over lap between files we want and files they have is the files we want from them, which combined with the label implies they got everything they wanted.

Well, they got everything they wanted that it was possible for the other side to give. They still want a bunch more files, but it's not clear who has them.

That would be said very good reason for flipping the Y axis, the one the Florida graph doesn't have, due to failing to look dripping blood.

Look at what's in the circles. They only want a small number of the files they have, which they got.

Oh duh thanks. I took the left circle to be "files we want from them" which is probably how they meant it but not what it means. I got it now

Yeah, they got everything they wanted it was possible to give. They're suing because they're not being given files that the other party doesn't have and therefore can't give.

You know, now that he said that and I looked at it a little more it does make sense. But since it's a 3D graph on a 2D medium it remains kinda confusing to the brain.
