You still sporting the beard?

I see what you mean. Yes I'm working on yet another data point. We'll see how it goes!

Interesting comparison of India vs China population 1950-2100. Animated. [OC]

Some interesting points to note: India's population follows the standard demographic transition model (much like Western countries although a few decades later than them). China begins it's two child policy in 1969 and it's one child in 1979. You can see this effect (and the descendants of the effect) ripple up through the population pyramid. India will overtake China as the most populous country in the world in about 2024.

For a slower version of this animation with music, please see:

..... unless Chinese policies change again, as policies are wont to do.... or Indian policies change, for that matter....

Already have. One child policy is gone.

lol, China's about to have their own baby boomer problems, Get ready for the Make China Great Again hats

Must be a great side project you sold for $10,000

Probably drugs...

I'm going to guess he sold a quarter kilo of coke.

Damn. I probably should've put some money into stocks instead of just throwing it in the bank. I hate risk. :/

Do some research on index funds. They're low risk in the long term, much better return than banks, and if you spread it across a few different indexes then you'll only lose your investment if civilisation collapses. People will rarely try and convince you to enter index funds because they're by definition unmanaged, so there is no room for them taking a cut, but they out-perform the vast majority managed funds because it turns out that no one is able to predict the stock market.

EDIT: I am not an expert, don't ask me for specific advice. Go read a book on index funds before you do anything.

30 Years of Data Reveals the Ever-changing Course of the Padma River [OC]

30 Years of Data Reveals the Ever-changing Course of the Padma River [OC]

Year 1: Our property is a ways away from the river, but that's ok

Year 5: Yay, waterfront property! This is awesome!

Year 10: Blub

Heraclitus — 'No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.'

It's really cool to see the horseshoes (or whatever they are called) form, pinch, close, and disappear.

Wonder if this kind of change occurs along the Mississippi or some other densely populated river.

[OC] Thought I’d share my heart rate tracker data from my first time being shot at while on duty

[OC] Thought I’d share my heart rate tracker data from my first time being shot at while on duty

How long was the contact ? Your heart rate stayed quite high for about 3 hours.

Interesting, wonder how long it took ya to get back to normal. Kinda cuts abruptly

That's the equivalent of a modest tempo workout for a middle to long distance runner. I suggest two days recovery, nothing but easy runs (shifts), before exposing yourself to getting shot at again in order to maximize super-adaptation to the stimulus. Let's stay safe out there, people.

That only measured the major spikes. It was a pretty tense time, plus it happened towards the end of the hour so that just happened to be the major data point. I took a screenshot of the app where it cuts off. Wore the watch all day though

"First time being shot at while on duty."

That's a terrifying phrase.

"First time" makes it seem like this is expected to happen again.

As i was scrolling i thought this picture was the south coast of Australia.... Very interesting though once i stopped and actually looked at it!

Tasmania is in heavy debt

Data created from running balance exports of my bank accounts over the last 2 years (business account, personal account, savings account, and retirement savings).

Graph was created in Numbers, nothing fancy but gets the data across well.

Any questions, let me know!

Wow the colours and the text saying"moved house" made me believe this was a map, would also be a pretty good spot near the sea

This is some seriously impressive stuff. It was really interesting to see visually the comparison between my current county in NC and my home county (more rural).

It's very interesting to see some of the highest crime, shittiest housing in the bay area a dark blue and then see the nicest area where people retire (walnut creek) have some of the lowest income in the bay area (because retired).

Wth is happening in TN? There is this island in the middle of red there.

Williamson County, Tenn. Median income: $100,140

Reddit is Changing its Mind about Elon Musk [OC]

Reddit is Changing its Mind about Elon Musk [OC]

What's with the slow decline over time? I can see the recent drop, but it seems to me like he was gaining popularity outside of reddit over the last 3 years

There's issues beyond the recent pedo thing that have been slowly cumulative over time. His behaviour towards his shareholders and press conferences are among them.

Like calling reasonable questions about financial instability "bone headed"

Even outside his behaviour some of his projects are also questionable. The hyperloop being the one of the biggest question marks. Not only do the test runs not run any faster than a bullet train (as people predicted) but its also incredibly dangerous to put a pressurised tube above ground stretching hundreds of kilometers and there's been no real attempt to address how he intends to overcome this.

People like Musk should stay away from personal social media. Before I followed him I thought he was just a cool dude making good electric cars and moving spaceflight into the next stage, I wish I didn't know he acts like a petulant child when faced with any sort of criticism or that he thinks of himself as a super-genius in every fucking field.

What kind of world do we live in where you can't accuse a hero of being a paedophile without any evidence without people turning on you?

A Statistical Breakdown of Guests on Late Night Talk Shows Over the Last 5 Years

A Statistical Breakdown of Guests on Late Night Talk Shows Over the Last 5 Years

Was John Oliver on all these shows promoting s book? I would have categorized him as a comedian or something before an author.

No disrespect to him, but I wouldn't label Shaq as a rapper or Ice Cube as an actor, even though they would technically qualify.

Ice Cube has been in several movies and besides music that's where his name is from

Betting Ice Cube has made more acting then rapping though.

Not by the looks of it. He is a guest in that chart and is categorized author
