It does get the information across, just in the least convenient way possible.

We Have Met the Enemy and He Is PowerPoint

A PowerPoint diagram meant to portray the complexity of American strategy in Afghanistan certainly succeeded in that aim.

The awful part is that they don't use an equal-area projection, right?

Yeah using the proper projection I think you'd get more at the equator, or rather more between the two tropics than outside of it.

This is actually a good chart that is clear to read. It is very busy but conveys the info pretty well.

The temperature has gone up by like 3 degrees (scale is too small to see properly, but something like that anyway).

That's quite a lot. Good graph.

I don't understand everyone's reaction to this. Sales dip after 9/11. So? Or is it something completely unrelated that I'm missing?

Here's the source for all the graphs I posted. There's a staggering amount of content on there with disappointingly awful graphs between the racist/sexist/antisemitic diatribes, while the amusingly awful graphs are few and far between.

I'm sure whoever put Koko on there thought they were being clever, but the rest of it seems perfectly sincere.

I don't think this is real. Stereotypically bad stuff like "TRUTH@!" makes it seem fake.

Though there is an awful lot of content for satire that nobody's gonna read.

Maybe it's Jeff Waters? He's a loving beast.

More importantly though, how did they come up with the Israel's number? I thought they were still not acknowledging having any officially.

There are various estimates, though I have no idea how these were made. I usually see numbers between 50 and 200.

Also, that Jeff thing reminds me of the character Raven from Snowcrash. Guy is wired so that if heart stops, it sends a signal to detonate the nuke he keeps in his motorcycles side-car. Badass.

This brought back a memory from my adolescence, where a friend and I were wondering what the decimal point meant. We figured 1 was a death, and the decimals were degrees of injured.

No this doesn't make sense, but I find it funny that I was talking about this with a friend back in the day, and that I remember it pretty well.

Also, great movie.

Swedish is accurate though

So is the Canadian one, including with a bit of divergence at the end, so when the deal is done there's always some sort of followup question.

I couldn't point to any part of the chart and say why its accurate though. I want a legend, or a scale or something.

The Italian and Finnish ones are great.

Honestly I understand this concept and I still screw up all the time when trying to do the math in my head quickly. It's one of those things that people seem to be very poorly wired to handle.

Yes. I know this, but it means I usually have to double check my work when using numbers like this because about half the time I'll gently caress it up.

Didn't you know that the people telling you that you can't be a fascist are the real fascists?

I get that people dislike antifas tactics; indeed I think it normal that people don't like masked hooligans doing much of anything. But the only similarities they share with fascists (using violence for political means) is shared by pretty well every other ideology as well, certainly the more radical/reactionary ones.
