I'm tired. This one isn't clicking.

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°.

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.

Maybe some Koreans just take things out on Japan whenever something happens? (A plane crashes in Ukraine? Attack Japan! etc.)

Except that graph is in Japanese. Can anyone who reads Japanese confirm the overlaid translation is roughly correct?

Wow. I've seen this before without the "hole" label, so someone saw this totally quantative and objective chart without it and though "No , this isn't clear enough. Clearly I must repeat the evils of the CHRISTIAN DARK AGES "

You could make the argument that it was manufactured in June 2015 and will last two years and they want to somehow represent the first part of that sentence but let's face it they're probably trying to trick you into throwing it out sooner so you have to buy more.

Maybe that's when the creator of that graph thinks Islamic extremist terrorist groups started popping up? Not like any of his other facts are straight.

"Transhuman Explosion" is quite possibly the best "would be a good band name" I've ever heard.

E: gently caress it's Transhuman Renaissance and Posthuman Explosion, those don't sound as cool. Also f;b with a more likely reason.

This graph would probably be just fine if they swapped Reading with one of the other columns, since most of the countries have Reading either higher or lower than Science and Math.

I'm guessing the point is to have the UK scores in ascending order, since it's black, bold and in the title. Maybe if it was more spread out, with fewer countries? The graph is an amazing combination of making perfect sense and being totally impenetrable.

They're all the same chart so I'm assuming they've photoshopped a decent, for a pie chart, chart over a stock image of a bunch of ecstasy pills falling out of a bottle, then removed any hint of being remotely clever.

This is not so much awful, more funny in what it means. The numbers are average OKCupid compatibility scores for that starsign combination.



Well, the idea that that meant anything.

You're probably joking, but in any case the odds of made-up match percentages being so uniform is astronomically () low.

They don't claim to be science but afaik it's a consistent method of generation.

Still my favorite. You can watch their hopes die in real time!

My favourite part of this is the green line where they actually do predict at least an initial drop before the pipe-dream turnaround and still manage to be wrong.
