    Source: my own data. Every time i fill gas i take the receipt to keep track of amount paid, price/L, date, as well as km driven since last fill.

    Tool: Microsoft Excel

    Note:- I included the vertical lines to show the frequency of my gas runs.

    • This is the price per liter of 91 octane, in Ontario Canada. There are a few refuels from my trip from Ontario to Massachusetts, these data points are converted from usd/gallon back to cad/liter

    • Gas prices differ from station to station, within a gas company, at any given time

    • I started with Petro-Canada, switched to Shell late September 2018. Massachusetts trip I refueled at Sunoco (X2) and Mobil (X1)

    • If anyone wants to link the hikes and drops to world events, feel free!

    Source/tools: I log all my spending in Google Sheets. I like how portable is and I can quickly access the sheet from any browser or my phone. I exported it to an Excel doc. I created a pivot table and played around with it to see my spending over time for the year. I have data now for 19 months (how long I've been budgeting) so thinking of doing something bigger to see more long-term trends.

    I love taking my in real life data and putting it into charts because I can see more perspective. I can definitely get away with spending more/not worrying so much about coffeeshop spending, home, and gifts. They make up SUCH a small percentage, overall, it isn't worth agonizing over like I tend to do.

    It's not really much relevant to "today's" Australia. Much as everyone loves the "Australians are all descended from convicts" trope, the reality is that the number of convicts sent to Australia was small and was totally swamped by free settlers very quickly. By the conclusion of the Gold Rush in particular, the proportion of white Australians who were, or were descended from, convicts was small. Since then there has been wave after wave of immigration (UK, Irish, Greek, Italian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian...) and convicts are a historical footnote at best.

    Tool: MicroStrategy Dossier (aka Visual Insight)

    Method: I copy/pasted the raw data from the website into an Excel spreadsheet and reformatted it to have brewery and beer names in columns of the same row. Then I looked up the state for each of the breweries. I loaded the data into MSTR and basically used the row count by state as the color.

    MSTR map didn't represent District of Columbia, so I added that in paint.

    This chart should really go back another 100 years. There was a 97% (or higher) reduction in measles fatalities (not cases) BEFORE the vaccine was introduced. This was due to plumbing, nutrition, refrigeration, and quarantine of infected individuals.

  • Thetallerestpaul
    5 points Aug 15,2019, 4:05pm

    The concerning thing about the world as it is, is I could see this date being recut and used to show a spike in cases after the two dose vaccine was introduced. Then used to show vaccines are bad m'kay.

  • Reveries25

    The zoom in on the second chart (max of 1500 vs max of 800k) is pretty misleading. Seems like if you kept the original axis the recent uptick would essentially be not visible.

    Note: this is not a endorsement of anti-vax. Just a commitment to calling out misleading charts.

    Let me preface this by saying I’m not against vaccines.

    Serious question: If vaccines work, why are people that are vaccinated worried about getting measles?

    If people get sick from measles, does that make them walking proof that the particular vaccine doesn’t work?

    Is there something I’m missing?

    The only thing I have to say is that the aesthetic negative space below the x axis makes me feel like number of measles cases has room to be a negative value. Not exactly beautiful but poignant data.

  • PlumbGame
    1 points Aug 15,2019, 7:58pm

    Be careful with this data and your attempts to mock anti-vaxers. The second graph doesn't even break 1500 cases, but is displayed in a way to create fearmongering (which is odd because the OP blames media for propagating these while also doing the same thing).

    The amount of people that are anti-vaxers is almost non-existent, so please don't get your panties in a knot after looking at this data which is fearmongering.

    The % of cases in 2019 is roughly .0003643% of the population.
    The % of cases in 2000 is roughly .0000354% of the population.

    The goal is 0 obviously, but based off the growth of the US, assuming that when the measles was declared eliminated and the rate of growth in the US, if these anti-vaxers continued to breed (insert anti-vaxer kids dying early meme/joke here) the % of population in 2019 would be roughly 1.62%.

    This obviously has no support for this number, but, it's a number to be shown based off peoples reactions that anti-vaxers exist in droves and that they have been increasing since lets say measles was declared eliminated when in fact the numbers in general are already basically non-existent, but would actually be higher if this was the case.

    Does anyone know how many of these measles cases resulted in death? Statistically, it should be 1-2 per 1000 but I don't know where to look for raw data. Conversely, it would also be interesting to see the amount of reported injuries caused by the measles vaccine.

    Let anti-vaxxers do what they want, if they’re not informed enough to realise that vaccines are saving lives, they shouldn’t have raised children. I feel bad for the kids but they’re the makings of their parents, presumably will be fucking idiots too.

    I think the important takeaway from this (that I haven't seen raised so far) is that people who reject the vaccine now have not a shred of an idea just how bad it used to be.

    Measles is up hundreds of times from the lowest point theyve seen in their lifetime but its an irrelevant fraction of how many cases there used to be. A measles epedemic today is nothing compared to what it used to be and people who underestimate the disease because of this do so because they weren't alive or old enough to remember when the vaccine was basically a miracle.

    This chart should really go back another 100 years. There was a 97% (or higher) reduction in measles fatalities (not cases) BEFORE the vaccine was introduced. This was due to plumbing, nutrition, refrigeration, and quarantine of infected individuals.

    The concerning thing about the world as it is, is I could see this date being recut and used to show a spike in cases after the two dose vaccine was introduced. Then used to show vaccines are bad m'kay.

    The zoom in on the second chart (max of 1500 vs max of 800k) is pretty misleading. Seems like if you kept the original axis the recent uptick would essentially be not visible.

    Note: this is not a endorsement of anti-vax. Just a commitment to calling out misleading charts.

    Let me preface this by saying I’m not against vaccines.

    Serious question: If vaccines work, why are people that are vaccinated worried about getting measles?

    If people get sick from measles, does that make them walking proof that the particular vaccine doesn’t work?

    Is there something I’m missing?

    Thanks in advance for your intellectual responses :)

    The only thing I have to say is that the aesthetic negative space below the x axis makes me feel like number of measles cases has room to be a negative value. Not exactly beautiful but poignant data.

  • PlumbGame
    1 points Aug 15,2019, 7:58pm

    Be careful with this data and your attempts to mock anti-vaxers. The second graph doesn't even break 1500 cases, but is displayed in a way to create fearmongering (which is odd because the OP blames media for propagating these while also doing the same thing).

    The amount of people that are anti-vaxers is almost non-existent, so please don't get your panties in a knot after looking at this data which is fearmongering.

    The % of cases in 2019 is roughly .0003643% of the population.
    The % of cases in 2000 is roughly .0000354% of the population.

    The goal is 0 obviously, but based off the growth of the US, assuming that when the measles was declared eliminated and the rate of growth in the US, if these anti-vaxers continued to breed (insert anti-vaxer kids dying early meme/joke here) the % of population in 2019 would be roughly 1.62%.

    This obviously has no support for this number, but, it's a number to be shown based off peoples reactions that anti-vaxers exist in droves and that they have been increasing since lets say measles was declared eliminated when in fact the numbers in general are already basically non-existent, but would actually be higher if this was the case.

    Does anyone know how many of these measles cases resulted in death? Statistically, it should be 1-2 per 1000 but I don't know where to look for raw data. Conversely, it would also be interesting to see the amount of reported injuries caused by the measles vaccine.

  • chutiyabehenchod

    I don't really understand why season 7 gets a pass. The decisions characters make, and the way the plot moves, makes even less sense than season 8. The entire "kidnap a zombie to convince Cersei to join us" idea is completely insane on multiple levels, all obvious from the start and several proven out by the way it plays out.

    The only way season 8 is significantly worse is that there's no hope of everything getting rescued by a later season. I guess season 7 didn't have any single episode as bad as the battle of Winterfell, but still, it was bad. All the main mistakes of season 8 - inexplicable character motivation, rushed plot development, absurd plot armor for key characters... it's all on display in season 7 as well.

    I stopped watching after Arya Kills the night king Biggest load of nothing ever. Hyped up to infinity only To be killed like he was nothing I was expected some huge boss fight but NOOOOOOO....That was where I knew the series wasn't going to recover, so I stopped watching it from there.

    The ratings for season 7 and 5 and to a lesser extent 6 are way too high.

    'Beyond the Wall' was an absolutely horrific episode, the worst of the entire series. The Winterfell plot in season 7 was an absolute disaster in basically every way. The season as a whole completely destroyed Tyrion's character. The plan to catch a Wight was one of the most idiotic and contrived things I've ever seen in a TV drama.

    Season 5 completely screwed up the Stannis arc and everyone agrees Dorne was a disaster.

    As for season 6, 'No-one' is probably the second worst episode of the entire show, BotB was great spectacle but written really badly, the last episode was highly entertaining and cathartic but also very cotrived, and Jon's death and resurrection turned out to be a complete waste of time. The three seasons had their strengths, some more than others, but they were all highly flawed. The writing didn't really get any worse in season 8, so I still find it odd it got such a disproportionate amount of hate. It's almost like all the criticisms building up since season 5 were just bottled up until things got too much and it exploded in season 8, but the shit was a long time coming.

  • Blackfire853

    I won't disagree that season 8 was shit. However IMDB ratings are not to be trusted imo. The highest rated episode of Breaking Bad is the final episode, in which Walter White creates a trap so an automatic rifle on a spring pops out of the trunk of a car and miraculously shoots every member of a meth-dealing biker gang dead. That's what IMDB users think is good television.

  • driverofcar
    2 points Aug 14,2019, 9:27am

    I'd be shit at writing it myself but if I had to....so basically Cersei and Qyburn make a zombie army out of the remaining people in the city, using what they learned on how to make the mountain turn undead and the undead capture, but the zombie army is not controllable and turns on Cersei, killing and turning the remaining humans in the city. The North army finally gets to kings landing to see it already seemingly dead, bit of horror-like style for the rest of the show just how it began (the good parts of GOT), tons of gore and fucked up shit. The wind picks up and the snow comes, almost forever dark, just like Bran saw it in his vision. Everyone is shitting their pants to another zombie army, the mountain tries protecting Cersei and seemingly dies, Cersei hides in some secret hole, then the rest of the humans and remaining dragons nuke the shit out of kings landing with the other dragon dying to the zombies, except for the big guy that sacrifices himself to save Danny and gets killed by the now undead dragon. Danny fights alongside with her heros in an attempt to help blow up the spire (where the iron throne is) which is filled with undead. The hound comes across his brother while fighting and the hound defeats the mountain (by lighting him on fire), but dies from the wounds he gets from the fight. Cersei is found by king slayer and Brienne, Cersei is undead, kingslayer has a tough time killing his sister, trying to ask her to come back he knows she's in there blah, blah, blah, they fight and king slayer dies to Cersei protecting Brienne, Brienne kills zombie Cersei, has to burn the body of king slayer. Zombie dragon almost kills everyone, but then Bronn saves them all by fixing the wildfire to one of those stupid OP giant spear-flinging devices. Bronn gets his earned title as a hero finally. Bran discovers a way to destroy the army using his new powers to "sort of" control them he learned how by almost dying to a undead but making the undead un-see him. They just walk off like their attention went to wherever Bran forced their mind to. Bran now needs a wide view over the city to save everyone. Bran is helped by Arya to get to the spire and Arya fights off Danny and her heros (besides john snow) that would rather blow up the spire. Bran has to crawl his way to a spot where he can see the whole city, Tyrion kinda comes out of nowhere and helps him to it, knowing what must be done. Danny's heros all die including melessandre and grey worm who die holding eachother, Danny is left alone, fighting undead, John Snow saves her and gets her the fuck out. Once again, everyone is surrounded and dying, desperately fighting off the undead and trying to keep them inside the city walls. Bran and Tyrion finally reach the top, Bran uses his power to force the undead to chill the fuck out and slowly walk into the ocean. The sun comes out, everyone is tired as shit. Danny and John rule equally together with a big counsel of people to help rebuild the world. Bran goes to his tree in winterfell and the tree infuses with him, just like the other three-eyed raven. Arya is a fucking ninja assassin with really bad PTSD so she goes into hiding. Sansa is the queen of the North, she just hangs out with Bran now. The northerners are granted full access across the wilderness and rule the upper part of the North. Castle Black is destroyed when the ice wall melts from the sun coming out finally. Samwell starts to write the story and history of all that played out, calling it "A Song of Ice and Fire" The End

    It's technically data, but it very low quality. imdb voters can be very fanboyish and toxic, I remember when they mass voted The Godfather rating 1 so The Dark Knight would take the number one spot.

    The reason ratings increased in s6/s7 was because of anticipation of something epic happening in last season. Otherwise you can see it jumped shark after s4 when the book material finished.

    Not really ratings... more like reviews. TV ratings are a measurement of how many watch a show. In that case, Season 8 had probably the highest.

    Does anyone else hate seeing that low dip in season 5 too? It was a slower season but I loved it. All that backlash over the sansa rape scene too. The episode wasn't shit, it was a shit situation. Of all the shit that happened in GOT that's what was over the line?

    I don't really understand why season 7 gets a pass. The decisions characters make, and the way the plot moves, makes even less sense than season 8. The entire "kidnap a zombie to convince Cersei to join us" idea is completely insane on multiple levels, all obvious from the start and several proven out by the way it plays out.

    The only way season 8 is significantly worse is that there's no hope of everything getting rescued by a later season. I guess season 7 didn't have any single episode as bad as the battle of Winterfell, but still, it was bad. All the main mistakes of season 8 - inexplicable character motivation, rushed plot development, absurd plot armor for key characters... it's all on display in season 7 as well.

    I was one of the people who watched GOT but never went on forums or discussed it, it was something I just did on my own...I was more of a casual watcher and I only really got into it around 2018, so I was never really invested like the rest of the fandom.

    I stopped watching after Arya Kills the night king Biggest load of nothing ever. Hyped up to infinity only To be killed like he was nothing I was expected some huge boss fight but NOOOOOOO....That was where I knew the series wasn't going to recover, so I stopped watching it from there. I still Have yet to watch past that and tbh I never will. I'm looking forward to DUNE in 2020 not to be messed up I hope...

    The ratings for season 7 and 5 and to a lesser extent 6 are way too high.

    'Beyond the Wall' was an absolutely horrific episode, the worst of the entire series. The Winterfell plot in season 7 was an absolute disaster in basically every way. The season as a whole completely destroyed Tyrion's character. The plan to catch a Wight was one of the most idiotic and contrived things I've ever seen in a TV drama.

    Season 5 completely screwed up the Stannis arc and everyone agrees Dorne was a disaster.

    As for season 6, 'No-one' is probably the second worst episode of the entire show, BotB was great spectacle but written really badly, the last episode was highly entertaining and cathartic but also very cotrived, and Jon's death and resurrection turned out to be a complete waste of time. The three seasons had their strengths, some more than others, but they were all highly flawed. The writing didn't really get any worse in season 8, so I still find it odd it got such a disproportionate amount of hate. It's almost like all the criticisms building up since season 5 were just bottled up until things got too much and it exploded in season 8, but the shit was a long time coming.

  • gaztaseven

    I won't disagree that season 8 was shit. However IMDB ratings are not to be trusted imo. The highest rated episode of Breaking Bad is the final episode, in which Walter White creates a trap so an automatic rifle on a spring pops out of the trunk of a car and miraculously shoots every member of a meth-dealing biker gang dead. That's what IMDB users think is good television.

    I think people are a little too harsh on episode 3. First of all it was epic, the music was grand, and we got a dope dragon fight but people were raging that not everyone and their mother was dead.... we all knew there were 3 episodes left and it would’ve been kinda bleh if most people you cared about died then... there would’ve been much less suspense

  • driverofcar

    I'd be shit at writing it myself but if I had to....so basically Cersei and Qyburn make a zombie army out of the remaining people in the city, using what they learned on how to make the mountain turn undead and the undead capture, but the zombie army is not controllable and turns on Cersei, killing and turning the remaining humans in the city. The North army finally gets to kings landing to see it already seemingly dead, bit of horror-like style for the rest of the show just how it began (the good parts of GOT), tons of gore and fucked up shit. The wind picks up and the snow comes, almost forever dark, just like Bran saw it in his vision. Everyone is shitting their pants to another zombie army, the mountain tries protecting Cersei and seemingly dies, Cersei hides in some secret hole, then the rest of the humans and remaining dragons nuke the shit out of kings landing with the other dragon dying to the zombies, except for the big guy that sacrifices himself to save Danny and gets killed by the now undead dragon. Danny fights alongside with her heros in an attempt to help blow up the spire (where the iron throne is) which is filled with undead. The hound comes across his brother while fighting and the hound defeats the mountain (by lighting him on fire), but dies from the wounds he gets from the fight. Cersei is found by king slayer and Brienne, Cersei is undead, kingslayer has a tough time killing his sister, trying to ask her to come back he knows she's in there blah, blah, blah, they fight and king slayer dies to Cersei protecting Brienne, Brienne kills zombie Cersei, has to burn the body of king slayer. Zombie dragon almost kills everyone, but then Bronn saves them all by fixing the wildfire to one of those stupid OP giant spear-flinging devices. Bronn gets his earned title as a hero finally. Bran discovers a way to destroy the army using his new powers to "sort of" control them he learned how by almost dying to a undead but making the undead un-see him. They just walk off like their attention went to wherever Bran forced their mind to. Bran now needs a wide view over the city to save everyone. Bran is helped by Arya to get to the spire and Arya fights off Danny and her heros (besides john snow) that would rather blow up the spire. Bran has to crawl his way to a spot where he can see the whole city, Tyrion kinda comes out of nowhere and helps him to it, knowing what must be done. Danny's heros all die including melessandre and grey worm who die holding eachother, Danny is left alone, fighting undead, John Snow saves her and gets her the fuck out. Once again, everyone is surrounded and dying, desperately fighting off the undead and trying to keep them inside the city walls. Bran and Tyrion finally reach the top, Bran uses his power to force the undead to chill the fuck out and slowly walk into the ocean. The sun comes out, everyone is tired as shit. Danny and John rule equally together with a big counsel of people to help rebuild the world. Bran goes to his tree in winterfell and the tree infuses with him, just like the other three-eyed raven. Arya is a fucking ninja assassin with really bad PTSD so she goes into hiding. Sansa is the queen of the North, she just hangs out with Bran now. The northerners are granted full access across the wilderness and rule the upper part of the North. Castle Black is destroyed when the ice wall melts from the sun coming out finally. Samwell starts to write the story and history of all that played out, calling it "A Song of Ice and Fire" The End

Even more so the 1st 2 episodes of season 8 were at least interesting and created some build up for...well, you know.

    Finally got around to adding senate votes and changed some things based on feedback.

    This includes everything from votes during "Roll Call" to votes on amendments for bills but only floor votes, so votes during committee assignments are not included. There are 3 types of votes Yes, No and NV (No Vote). The image only looks at 2019 but the interactive version linked below goes back to 2016 for the senate and 2003 for the house.

    There is a straight diagonal line of 100% same votes, this is when it shows how often the person votes with themselves. The interactive version has a hover over tool tip that will show both names, party, the number of times they voted the same way and the percentage. sample tooltip image

    Also, I'd adjust the y-axis label on the first chart to indicate those numbers are hours. At first I thought that thumbtack icon was a percentage symbol.
