Darin M. points us to this speedometer chart, produced by IBM (larger version here). They call it the "Commuter Pain Index". I call it a prickly eyebrow eyelashes chart. You be the judge.
The "eyebrows" on this chart are purely ornaments. The only way to read this chart is to read the data labels, so it is a great example of failing the self-sufficiency test.
The simplest way to fix this chart is to unwrap the arc, turning this into a bar chart. The speedometer is a cute idea but very difficult to pull off because the city names are long text fields, and variable in length.
