That must take the crown for most misleading and dishonest chart I have ever seen. "Number of gun deaths in Florida went up after enacting stand your ground laws? Let's flip the graph upside down!"

If I remember correctly, that was made as an example of how graphs can be deceptive.

That doesn't seem so bad to me, but I do have to wonder why literally every answer is "global warming is probably bullshit".

Presumably there were other statements in the original survey that weren't included in the chart because they weren't relevant to the professor's point.

To be fair, I don't think that chart was designed to encompass the entire spectrum of human political thought, just American politics.

Sweden? What the hell?

Sweden's had an unusually high surprise sex rate for a Western country since those statistics started being collected. This is most likely because Sweden has a wider definition of "surprise sex" than most other countries and because surprise sex is more likely to be reported there, and probably not because more surprise sex is actually committed there than in other countries.

Why does male sterilisation go from 10% to 10% and end up lower on the right hand side?

Because it's not 10% on the right hand side, it's 8%.

Everyone says that teachers are valuable and underappreciated until it comes time to start talking about education reform or the education budget, at which point the conversation just turns to how lazy and ineffectual teachers are.

Even so, anyone who says that a teacher is a more prestigious job than a congressman is lying to themselves.

Nah, Japanese people just murder themselves. Japan's suicide rate is higher than the US's suicide rate and homicide rate combined.

True enough, but doesn't Japan also have a problem with police classifying unsolved murders as suicides?

How does horse racing skew democratic, if only barely?

And WWE?

The explanation I've heard for WWE is that fandom/viewership is trending younger and more heavily Hispanic.

The fun part is that it actually is ordered along the x-axis in spite of not looking ordered

e: or ... it isn't? It looked like it was ordered by population but there are things out of place, so

It's ordered by number of Republican delegates
