    Some charts mean more than others

    Just in the mood for some meaningful data. Carry on.

    A few years ago, I was using MS Excel functions for creating line graphs. The data wasn't cooperating, and interpretations were weak. Then I dumped the data in the pie chart function. Totally meaningless so I included it in my presentation,wanting to get a laugh from the math nerds in the group.

    Pie chart indicates that more rides, hence more pie consumption is needed. This problem should be remedied as soon as possible.

    My favorite chart wasn't a pie chart, but a Venn diagram that Marshall used on an episode of "How I Met Your Mother." It had two intersecting circles, one of which he said represented people who are "breaking my heart." The other circle was people who are "shaking my confidence daily." The intersection was, of course, "Cecilia."

    Is there a chart for rolling resistance of various front hub bearings?
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Is the data modal, or a la mode?


    OK, that was weak.

    The chart's accuracy can be guaranteed only on March 14.

    I seriously question the quality of the chart as presented. As it has no meringue, it is invalid.

    Oh, I disagree. Managers tend to get too much fluff into their presentations. I like this one for its no-nonsense anti-fluff attitude.

    The yellow label of the chart is wrong. It should say 'pie I have not eaten yet.'
