glad to see the charts finally all in one place

people who don't know statistics are particularly susceptible to the deception of "mumps vaccine introduced here, and cases fall here" dogma.

this happens a lot in business, too, and is particularly damaging when, say, your finance department intentionally presents deceptive information by playing with the excel charts (seen this). Or maybe they are incompetent in understanding them, themselves.

stats and charts are very deceptive, and a very real problem when deciphering anything.
