There is Rain in my Heart

Hi, I'm E :) and this is my bizarre blog. Sometimes I reblog photography or art or stuff to do with books, particularly of the fantasy or spooky variety. Superheroes (especially Marvel), Welcome to Night Vale, and Doctor Who also make a frequent appearance. Outside of tumblr I'm 22 and an international relations major with a slight zombie obsession. Talk to me! Unlike my zombie friends, I don't bite ;)

So can we talk about the absolutely stunning duplicity going on here?

holy shit

ok, why the fuck is the graph upside down. that is incredibly misleading

Because its from the Florida Department of Justice, and they have a mandate here.

for those who have trouble inverting it in their head, ftfy:


this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit

WOWWWWW. In case you can’t see it at first (it took me a minute!), in their initial chart they put the zero at the TOP of the axis and 1,000 at the bottom, so it looks like gun deaths went down instead of, you know, way way way way up.
(Editorial note: I looked for the source of the graphic to make sure it was a real thing that had been published and found it in a Business Inside article. They say Reuters published the graphic but I can’t find it on the Reuters site or the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement site. Strange.)
(Second editorial note: Wait! I found it! The person who made it is a graphics journalist for Reuters and says this graphic about deaths in Iraq was the visual inspiration. But that Iraq graph has the axis at the top of the chart. This graph doesn’t. Very strange.)

Sorry guys, this week I saw both Captain America 1 and Captain America 2 for the first time. I’ve gone a little crazy, but normal programming should resume by the weekend.
