Easily the funniest data viz I've ever seen. (1) First of all, it's a pie chart. (2) The total is greater than 100%. (3) The relevant categories are today, last year, and... the year 1997? (4) The margin of error (MOE) is listed as the source.

Also, it’s not just about straight vs curved side. I’ve seen knives where the straight side is sharp and they are not confusing at all, as their curved edge makes it clear it’s not the sharp one by having an almost 90 degree turn.

The waiter KNEW it’s confusing and pre-emptively explained how the knives work. Having to do that a sign of poor usability. Perhaps in another country the knives wouldn’t have this problem, as they would be externally consistent. Clearly in the country they were used, they did.

In this instance it was supposed to be a steak knife, and having a straight sharp edge violates external consistency.

Interesting example of poor usability of everyday things: this knife is designed in such a way than the sharp end is on the side you’d expect the blunt end, so you keep trying to cut with…

I don’t think “flame war” applies here.

As if you would be able to explain, if you had to. 😂😂😂 Leavers are motivated by propaganda and hatred, not reason, and thus there is nothing to explain. Frankly, please go choke on a bucket of cocks. 👋

You still haven’t explained why you want to leave the EU.

If you don’t dislike foreigners, what on Earth were you hoping to accomplish by leaving the EU?! Are you completely deluded on what Brexit is all about?!

I honestly couldn’t care less what you think or whether you’re offended. Leavers come in two kinds: the dumb kind who’s easily manipulated and the bigoted human garbage kind. For your sake, I hope you’re in the first category, since then there’s at least some hope of waking up.

Also I wish more people submitted PRs for docs. Everyone wants to submit code, but good technical writing is much harder to come across.

I do console.warn(), it gives you a stack trace but unlike console.trace(), it’s collapsed, so it’s ok if you have multiple. Or a debugger; statement if I want to pause execution.

Sorry as in “I’m sorry you’re xenophobic and isolationist” (i.e. I’m sad on your behalf), not as an apology, there’s nothing to apologise for. But I’m not surprised a leaver failed so spectacularly at understanding English. After all, the Leave campaign did thrive on illiteracy.

I wasn’t sure if you were being sarcastic to him (implying that he was also ‘splaining to you)

Um, you are, sorry. Or just misled and lied to by politicians. Pick which one applies to you, but neither is positive.

That was a good analogy Jake. Snook, try to rephrase your excuses for these people as excuses for mansplainers (not much rephrasing will be needed!) and you’ll instantly see what’s wrong with that line of argumentation.

Americans: stop saying "in America we have this thing called [x]" where x is a thing much of the world has, and was likely invented outside the US.
