The Chart of the Day

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I'm pretty sure the same chart would fairly accurately reflect the number of college/university faculty vs. college/university administrators.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

Interesting article with interesting charts:

The short history of global living conditions and why it matters that we know it.
I have shared this web site with some of my pessimistic friends in the past, and on my facebook page.
Nothing like facts and data!

I found this interesting after seeing some comments about icebergs melting causing the ocean to rise (scientists say) due to that new Delaware sized iceberg in the Antarctic. I searched and found the rising is measured in micrometers (1000ths of a millimeter) --* the cause is by it being freshwater density difference and temperature expansion due to changes from ice to median sea water temperature--> the bulk of displacement is already accounted for due to Archimedes principle*. Got me curious as to how much evaporation of the ocean occurs in the cycle... tada-- a chart.

A nice series of charts to help people understand how meaningless correlation can be (or to start some really interesting conspiracy theories).

I was going to post a teaser visual here, but the way that the charts are embedded in the webpage prevents that, so I'll just mention that one example is that there is an amazing correlation between the age of Miss America and the number of murders by steam, hot vapors, and hot objects.
