    id say the best point made is the bandwidth, put simply you can get more out of visual data

    so worth it

    The first tree map is a horrible way to visualize data, specially because the width is not constant across squares. I love irony, some guy talking about how to visualize data gives bad visualizations.

    Military budget in relation?!? Makes no sense whatsoever!

  16. Brian St. Denis says:

    Should have showed "fear of climate change", either colder or warmer, over the years going back 100 or more years. In any case, you can see that what the media is afraid of has a very low chance of being realized in what you did show. Maybe show "media fear" followed by "government spending" to realize how much government wastes on these silly fears.

    Okay, but the absolute number of troops and the absolute amount of military equipment is kinda important when it comes to combat. If you have more troops on the ground and a better equipped navy and air force than your opponent, it matters not what proportion of the population is in the service on either side. If your forces are so powerful that they're bigger than everyone else combined, you're still spending too much on the military.

    Hmm. Investing 3 trillion in Iraq and Afghanistan would've solved a lot of issues

  32. Rocksfir e says:

    he should of did the amount of money spent on military in relationship to how many wars they are currently in. or in amount of money spent on the military in relationship to how much money weapon companies donate every election.
    the amount of money we spend on military is unreasonable no matter how you slice the data.
