Thanks! Even my kids enjoyed the water usage vs. Team Canada hockey game! I'm still amazed at how much traction that graph enjoyed in the week after the game, and here it is again.

This is really neat! Thanks for posting.

I especially liked the graph showing what people try to resist in daily life. That's an interesting way to display data - sized pie charts on an axis. And it's interesting that the resistance to most activities looks fairly even - although people seem to resist working the most, although they don't appear to desire it as much as, say, eating or watching television.

I'd love to know the story behind 'US Highway Fatality Rate vs. Fresh Lemons Imported from Mexico'.
Sadly it links to a paper entitled 'Causation vs. Correlation.'
