Haven't you noticed the pie chart displaying "percent increase" (left column, near the bottom)? I love that one too.

This is not chartjunk. 3D and other "features" we love to hate is one thing. Technically wrong charts is something else. This is just stupid and ignorant.


It's ridiculous - why do I need to know the number of Americans who think Obama is a Muslim? And why are figures only shown from March 2008 and August 2010?

I just don't get it. Somebody gets paid to put this stuff together!

Awesome find :) Pretty interesting math indeed and visualizations.

In the movies one, apparently 4*7.5 is about 23

and gotta love all the bell curves :) nice touch in one of that that goes over the top.
