Are the counting the actual Milky Way in those numbers? Because it seems like you can see a lot of stars in it


Millions of them

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

So basically nobody born before 1930 was named Karen (at least in the US).
I wonder why it became popular around that time.
I had a friend when I was a kid whose mother was named Karen, but not really anyone my own age or younger. Apparently it is Scandinavian in origin.

It became really popular starting in 1968. Crashed in 2003.

Never a good idea, in my opinion, to give your kid a 'currently popular' name. It will identify them as belonging to a certain age bracket as they get older. Much safer to choose names that have remained popular over centuries - these are often biblical: James, Peter, Paul, Mary, Jane, Elizabeth, ... You get no idea of the age of a person with names like those. Contrast with Maud, Kurt, Kylie, Karen, ...

Yeah, but those are kinda boring names too. I have one of those boring timeless names too. As do my brothers. They're all straight out of the Bible I think. I guess that means my parents would agree with you.

Maybe I was too subtle

The data ends in 2009, which is where the Ngram graph drops off

Yeah, increases in hospitalization happen a week or more behind increases in cases. And increases in deaths happen another few weeks after that.
And you need to allow that the rise in cases is mostly in younger people so far - they were the ones going out socializing and breaking the guidelines - so add in a week or so for them to pass it on to their older relatives.

Yes, we'll be seeing a big rise in the numbers of deaths in October. It's already happening in Spain where they are a few weeks ahead of us on the "second wave" curve.

I know it's a topological map, but I think they could have placed the islands better. For example: having Japan off the coast of Europe, next to Cyprus, seems wrong.
