I want to use this video for class but the end (man sitting at the bar with alcohol in front of him) isn't appropriate for school aged. Great content. Wish I could share it.

3:14 seriously?
Reminds me of the graphs the "climate change" scientists use..
This is the only useful thing we leanred in maths
A fox news graph is used as the example of a bad graph!
Legit truth...
Chevy still made the reliable trucks. The difference may be negligible but still right and greater than others.
Now I know why I failed my maths exam
Oh my God that's so clever!!
There’s lies, damned lies, and statistics.

That was cool
I think the first example of the chevy exaggerating their graph was not appropriate, because it was about the rate of durablity of their trucks. Surely, they exaggerated the graph, arguing theirs are the best. But it doesn't mean that the mere percents of difference doesn't matter. Assuming it was the rate of trucks broken, we can say toyota trucks almost doubled chevy in loss.

I think it's almost like a fielding rate of fielders in baseball. Between 96% and 98% seems small difference, but it says the 96% one commited twice more errors than the other.
Amazing! I remember a quote which states, “there are liars, damn liars, and statistics.”
Of course a Fox News graph made the cut... Fox manipulates data all the time as part of their relentless propaganda.
@3:14 this graph is more important because it uses a much smaller time segment, you know don't be miss led by stacked statistics
A good book to read is How To Lie With Statistics by Darrell Huff. An old book but still relevant. There is another book used in an Uol Stats undergrad course but I can not for the life of me remember its name. It is lost in my room under some clothes or books.
I love these graphics ahaha
was the animator high? 3:31
