Glad there isn't anything in the top right quadrant. Maybe smallpox would have gone there once upon a time? (Particularly for people native to the Western Hemisphere; those in the "Old World" where it was endemic had more resistance to it).

Well HIV certainly has spread far wider. But maybe that's because HIV takes a long time to kill people and so they can be able to spread the disease for years, whereas Ebola has only a short time window to spread.

I've made whole careers being right the fuck there. Once I get there, I stop trying. Look at that fucking learning curve. I'm not trying to climb that. Fucking hard.

That's pretty cool. I think you get meanders like that where the ground is almost flat. So there is no obvious way for the water to flow.

Quite. The meanders are unstable, water erodes the outside and deposits alluvium on the inside, so they get bigger & bigger until pinched off as an oxbow lake, and a new one starts. You see that layered quality in the graph.

By the way, I've seen the (original) Meander: very flat, covered in reeds, lots of channels without any clear direction of flow. And on a nearby hill, small Greek temple I had the pleasure to have for my exclusive use. (For secret rites, of course…)

They're getting better now that the big names are more vested. The cost is coming way down and efficiency is going way up. I'm still a little suspicious of longevity though. Perhaps I should buy a big name brand and disassemble it to see. The tricky think about LED is ya gotta move the heat. As roughly a third of all fixtures dictate bulbs be placed base-up, that presents problems. Legacy fixtures play a roll here as the upside-down sockets are generally ceramic and designed more to block the flow of heat in high temperature incandescent. That is exactly the opposite of what one needs here, yet the engineers must build to those existing sockets. Kudos to Matt's continuing porch light though. I still haven't got around to stealing it. But I will.

The diagram suggests nearly 100 % efficiency ( :shock: ), so there shoulden't be much heat – you just have to funnel the light out of the LED.

Actually, it suggests nearly 100 lumens per watt. 680 Lu/W =100%, depending on how you define lumen limits.

it strikes me funny that an incandescent is 98% efficient if you use it as a space heater. It approaches 100% if you close your drapes.

I cannot believe that number is not 100%, all categories, all genders. At least not for anyone that spends any significant time on the tubes.

Somebody is lying.

What an interesting graph. But I'm having a hard time interpreting it. Does it mean it it getting harder or that trial dates are getting harder to come by?

It's government stuff. We're not supposed to understand it. They might as well graph the number of sandwiches they sell in the cafeteria.

great graph. puts it in perspective. a less-sympathetic Lister might suggest the same graph excluding non-US causalities. Then a side by side comparison with auto accidents.

Would donating more for heart disease actually make a difference?

Isn't it a lifestyle disease?

Actually I'm a bit of mixed feelings about "donating".

Concerning heart disease specifically, money could go to prevention: learning body maintenance. (Efficiency remains to be seen.)

But what is always interesting with that type of graph, that's the distortion between perceived threat (or "sentimental" reasons like "I woulden't die of…") and reality.
Another example would be people scared of taking a plane but merrily driving around. But then media seldom show the real state of bodies after a crash…
