is everyone unanimously puzzled by the fact that Arcanine is officially referred to as a Chinese pokemon, or is there some accepted canon about Pokemon taking place on Earth that I wasn’t aware of?  D:

body is wonky, but i’m overall a little happier with this one, maaybe?  based on the Silver sprite pose.  (I think gold/silver has most of my favorite sprites.)

Snake is pleased.

ANACONDOM®: is your Snake’s Solidity a cut above the rest? Do your gushing, Liquid emissions take up a lot of inventory space? When you need survival-grade durability and advanced Snake camouflaging protection, don’t even think about using anything else. Your psych gauge will thank you.

AnaCondom - it’s Snake Eater-approved.

How to lie with statistics: The relationship between Florida’s Stand Your Ground law and gun deaths.

At Junk Charts, Kaiser Fung drew my attention to a graph released by Reuters.  It is so deeply misleading that I loathe to expose your eyeballs to it.  So, I offer you the mishmash above.

The original figure is on the left.  It counts the number of gun deaths in Florida.  A line rises, bounces a little, reaches a 2nd highest peak labeled “2005, Florida enacted its ‘Stand Your Ground’ law,” and falls precipitously.

What do you see?

Most people see a huge fall-off in the number of gun deaths after Stand Your Ground was passed.  But that’s not what the graph shows.  A quick look at the vertical axis reveals that the gun deaths are counted from top (0) to bottom (800).  The highest peaks are the fewest gun deaths and the lowest ones are the most.  A rise in the line, in other words, reveals a reduction in gun deaths.  The graph on the right — flipped both horizontally and vertically — is more intuitive to most: a rising line reflects a rise in the number of gun deaths and a dropping a drop.

The proper conclusion, then, is that gun deaths skyrocketed after Stand Your Ground was enacted.

This example is a great reminder that we bring our own assumptions to our reading of any illustration of data.  The original graph may have broken convention, making the intuitive read of the image incorrect, but the data is, presumably, sound.  It’s our responsibility, then, to always do our due diligence in absorbing information.  The alternative is to be duped.
