That's a great graph. It makes a point through hyperbole and intentionally chooses a poor informational layout to make its point more visually striking.

Maybe it's just because I took too much math in college, but this chart communicates a rather complicated notion(assuming it uses any sort of meaningful data) pretty effectively, and I'd certainly ding it for style, the substance seems really good.

A loss.jpg reference is definitely not a joke, and I have no intention of making light of it. And it can be a tough and emotional thing for threads to go through, speaking from personal experience. And I know that it's often much harder on the reader than on the poster. However, I also know that it doesn't necessarily turn you into a sad, depressed sack of tears for the rest of your life. People can move past it, and heal.

But seriously. It's not a joke.

Freakanomics had a thing that said there was an issue with murders in Japan that if the cops weren't 100% sure they could solve/convict someone would be classified as "found body" and never investigated criminally. Something about the cops not wanting to hurt their name or record with unsolved cases, so they would just avoid having a tough case to solve in the first place.

Man, combined with what I've learned about Japan's legal system from playing video games, it sounds like they're just full of perverse incentives.

I have no idea what this is supposed to be but I think it's supposed to be a chart or diagram of some kind.

You know, if they hadn't tried to force a "there's an intersection of all of these" absolute rule into their graph, and by extension included a bunch of tenuous connections, this graph would only have been ugly, instead of ugly and meaningless.

Holy poo poo! What it’s saying is how rich is the median person of a generation compared to the previous generations at the same age. So ever since the boomers medium net worth has been on a downward trajectory And millennials now have a median 84% less wealth than other generations at their age.

Bird in a Blender posted:

That huge drop appears to mostly be because of lack of property wealth. Younger people either can't afford to buy property because prices are too high, or if they did buy property, values have not gone up. Older generations were able to buy cheaper property and then values have skyrocketed over the last couple of decades.

I also wonder if general health and lifespan increases has affected this a little bit. If our parents died earlier, then we would inherit their wealth sooner, inflating our net worth at an earlier age. Now, people are living decades longer some times, which means the younger generation has to wait longer for any inheritance (if there is an inheritance). Also, since the elderly are living longer, they are spending more of that money and passing less down to their kids.

It's the accumulation of wealth by very few individuals that started in an era where social mobility was still possible. It's not that boomers are well off, it's that the people who are well off happen to be boomers.

My God, this is fractal wrongness.

Once you get past the "IQ is by definition set with a mean of 100 for the current year"

There's the "using temporally grounded measures, IQ has been increasing approximately 8-10 points a generation for several generations especially in 'minority' populations" Flynn effect that says litterally the opposite of this chart.

There's STILL just... Ugh. What do these morons think IQ measures?

Whiteness + conservativism - empathy.

High IQ past the first standard deviation correlates strongly with liberalism or leftist beliefs though. And the average IQ of both self identified liberals and conservatives is about the same.

I mean that's literally what the research says, since I've read it, like an IQ obsessed rear end in a top hat.
