Aw fuck it


This map shows the number of tree species present in any location.

Wrong

This map shows the number of endemic tree species present in any location.

Better


This map shows the number of endemic tree species present in any location. Local areas of greater diversity are not shown due to the scale of the map.


Scientific in its description of the graphic

I don't understand how rainfall correlates but being an emperor between 200 and 300 was hazardous.

Perhaps periods of drought correlate with assassinations?

But I imagine it's a spurious correlation

Somewhat misleading in my opinion. Ratio of debt to GDP is better.

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

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.
