Fun with Graphs

I thought I'd take a break from my usual Theme Thursday this week and leave you with some visual humor instead.

First!

Monkey Man said...

But what about the bacon maple bar from Voo Doo Donuts - fills multiple food groups and it's good for you....just like pizza. Also, you are very generous with the repair time on your car. I'm impressed.

RA said...

Cool! :) I love statistics! No easier way to turn black into white...

Roy Scribner said...

VE - I get a ton of ED spam everyday that could help you with that last one. Should I forward those to you?

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - I'm pretty unpredictable right now as to when I'll publish a post...good catch!

monkey man - Voodoo fell under "desserts" on my chart. I could have expanded the category but I knew it would really fill in the chart then. As to the good for you factor...it's all what you're willing to buy in to! Oh, and the car thing...I guess my car behaves pretty well most of the time...

ra - Ha! I agree. I think that you can prove anything using statistics...

roy - I get a ton of ED everything! ;)

Leaving aside the incorrectness of using a pi-chart for the first one, the figures fail to take into account the number of pictures produced in each manner. Because people now take hundreds of digital photos where they would have only got 36 on film, your likelihood of being bored to tears by friends and relative's holiday snaps is sadly just as high as before.

VE said...

brian - Of course I've taken into account the liklihood of anyone actually bothering to print a picture and waste $1,000 on printer ink to do so is minimal and therefore you are safe from holiday snaps as long as you stay clear of their cell phone and computer...

Raw hamburger? Seriously??

Mrsupole said...

Oooh, I love to look at charts and graphs, they are so purty. Then the pie ones make me hungry.

But seems like you put a lot of work into them, more than if you had written a story like I did. Bit at least you have some color.

God. Less.

Roy said...

Are you kidding? I'd have put chicken right up there with dark chocolate! Seriously! Anybody who doesn't think chicken is the most ambrosial food on the face of the earth has never had it cooked right. Looks like your area of the world must be full of lousy cooks.

Subby said...

You do jigsaw puzzles while you drive? Amazing...

Your food list got me to thinkin' about the ones on our fridge...to be posted at a later date ;)

ReformingGeek said...

Boogers? Ew.

The likelihood that your hard drive crashes before you back up your digital photos: HIGH!

Ronda Laveen said...

I don't see wine on your Food Reality Chart. Grapes? Okay, it could come under the Fruit category. I love statistics.

Elizabeth said...

You forgot "scream at stupid drivers" on your Things you do while Driving graph. That takes up a lot of my time!

Janna said...

For some reason I'm greatly amused that chicken is exactly in the middle of the chart. :)

Additional bad things to do while driving:
1. Prepare chicken recipes
2. Get sponge bath
3. Eat Ex-Lax
4. Have eyebrows waxed

lime said...

i totally agree with you on the liver & onions things. dark chocolate less so...

Count Sneaky said...

These graphs are very funny and original. You should make these a regular feature. Great blog.

Annie Ha said...

I guess it is time to eat more fruit

sharonheg said...

See, I'll take pictures of people just because they made me laugh...and NOBODY ever seems them again. But they're good memories for me.

Baino said...

Hate charts but I'm pleased that putting on makeup doesn't represent too big a risk of death . .

Dennis the Vizsla said...

That last chart needs a bar for "Your Relationship". How big the bar is is an exercise left to the reader.

Quirkyloon said...

*snort*

Doing turbo tax while driving, eh? I wonder if you find more deductions that way, or does filing while driving qualify as a tax credit?

CatLadyLarew said...

Yep, looks like you have your priorities straight, according to those charts and graphs.

Uncivil said...

Dang......I've been gone so long....I'll never catch up?
I like chicken and would always choose chicken nuggets for eating while driving food.
Well....it's time to grab my chicken mcnuggets,hop on the riding mower and mow the front yard, maybe even take a digital pic or two and download to the printer?

JenJen said...

What about "your marriage" on the graph? hmmm that's got to be around the printer mark, I think...right? RIGHT?

secret agent woman said...

This is why I have photos on my blog - so my favorite digital photos won't get lost in some folder!

aladdinsane12 said...

you forgot to add taxidermy to your list of things you do in your car. every stoplight, i start on a new squirrel.

Jaime said...

do people really play around on their laptops in the car? even i don't do that!

VE said...

Incredible woody – And did anyone hear about eccoli back then? No……

Mrsupole – No way…I have years of management experience. These kind of charts take minutes and mean nothing…just like at work!

Roy – I know…but I’m trying to balance out for the masses and all those damn vegans skew the stats…

Subby – Of course…what else can you do with red lights?

Reforminggeek – Now that’s for sure…

Ronda – I tried to stay politically correct…which means nobody is happy…

Elizabeth - That’s just a reflex though…I always do that…

Janna – Things happen for a reason! Keep an eye on the chickens. Oh, and I have this thing about eyebrow waxing…I don’t even get my car waxed…why would I attempt my eyebrows?

Lime – Dark chocolate is in the like area…I’m guessing you have it way over though…

Count sneaky – I just might…of course, I say that about many things and then get distracted again…

Annie ha – They’re good…unless they’re picked green and get shipped halfway around the world and then gassed to make them ripe…

Sharonheg – I do that but then I forget who they are and why I took them…

Baino – You’ve been vindicated…

Dennis the Vizsla – I think you should…even more if you’re juggling snow globes at the same time…

Catladylarew – That’s the great things about graphs…you can always justify everything with them…

Uncivil – Dude…I didn’t think you’d ever come back. Imagine all the republican bashing I’ve been up to without a single person to counter-point me….muh ha ha…

Jenjen – Come on now…we all know the graph was for things you could make work! ;)

Secret agent woman – Until the hosting company accidentally deletes your entire blog…

Aladdinsane12 – Awesome…that is just nuts! (sorry…couldn’t resist)

Jaime – Isn’t that what they’re for?
