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.

1 2 6 18 36 40 48 60 - I mean, really?

Someone basically picked the wrong graph type in Excel.

Libertarianism is so goddamn stupid

It is an SA reference. Look up Toblerone Triangular because he did do an awesome thing.

He is also responsible for "purestrain gold".

I'll take your word for it, i doubt the original is going to give any context on "rourd" anyway

It's "round". Though that doesn't help my understanding.

I'm interested in what they define as "education" because a lot of hard-right tertiary institutions are pure indoctrination centers

As a famous man once said: "They have been educated stupid."

Another one advertising the same bad scatter plot site. I don't think it's meant to be understandable but even so this is something else.

Are those all created as parodies? Third one in a similar style and two have the X axis messed up in the same way (for the third the X axis doesn't have value labels).



I get what they are going for but I don't think that graph really maps out what the commentary says...

They do the same stuff in Scandinavia. It just leads to people paying ridiculous amounts for booze, but they don't really drink less.

The systembolaget isn't too bad these days. One interesting thing is that they often get some good booze at better prices and often the price is more guided by alcohol content than quality.

80% of the time I have no idea what you guys are talking about but I just take my cue from other goons and add a 'lol' or 'lmao what a bad graph', hoping that no one will notice that I don't understand statistics

Which circuit are you a judge in?

This one is just a reflection of a bad underlying system though.

Ah, fair enough on that point, but after reading through the thread I still disagree with his opinion on montage songs and a lot of folks in the replies seem to disagree as well.

Going by the content of the tweets he likes stuff that directly drive the plot forward of directly relate to the characters who drive the plot forward. Generally down on things fleshing out the mood or setting or otherwise potentially interpretable as "filler". He is down about the "It's Nature Time", "Hereís A One Note Character", and, I think, "The Drug Song" as well.

My company has a large continental European office and a large US office. Don't ask me about how annoying it is that the decimal point is a decimal comma over there instead.

How the hell do CSV files work over there? Does everyone just use bar delimited? Escape characters everywhere?

CSVs are the devil's work as well.

The one thatís been going around is the 2003 edition.

The 2015 edition has Africa connected.

Presumably the earlier editions didn't have the African maps available?
