That was cool
Tl;Dr; Don't trust a study you didn't fake yourself...
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.”

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

And there goes the saying "numbers don't lie" out the window.
So we're all gonna ignore the fact that the guy saw the graph at the bar, examined it so intently that his eyes fell out and then married it? Is this some kind of subliminal relationship advice?

In France, a major TV news channel showed a pie graph with 47% of people not supporting a march against a new labour law... with 2/3 of the graph colored. The title was: "The majority of French don't approve this march".
and they showed 32% approved the march with roughly 1/3 (which is honnest) and the 21% "without opinion" was a tiny slice.
