As Lori Lewis concludes, "It's a serious traffic jam out there."

The question - as we noted last night - is, how much of it is 'real'?

How many faps can you do in a minute?

That's the correct answer.

This pie chart isn't weighted. Please show the wedges as a weighted total.

Edit: This isn't even a real pie chart. The comparisons are apples to oranges. You cannot equate equal portions to 'money spent' to 'youtube videos watched'. Please post a real article without misleading visual depictions.

You'll eat your pie chart the way it is and you'll like it dammit.

If it were chocolate pie decorated with 59 cruise missiles.. I would eat it. And like it.

But you already knew that didn't you.

And who among us cannot appreciate the longstanding and well-known - some might even say legendary - absurdist sublimity of ZH infographics?

At this point, what difference does it make?

It is not a pie chart.  It is a round graphic.  They could have made it a square or a triangle.  Calm down Pythagoras.

Well I see you've edited to correct your first comment.

The point is that a pie chart was probably the wrong presentation of this information for the reasons you state that it isn't proportionalised or weighted which pie-charts almost always are.

It was just a convenient display format to present the information as nice eye candy. Nothing more.

Oh CD,

Not only am I a deviated prevert, but I'm first deviated prevert. :-)


Does this mean that you have accidentally revealed your real name?

May I address you sir as Colonel 'Bat' Guano?

I been thinking about setting up a youtube channel myself. Why not. I could get paid for making fun of stupid people. I think there might be a market for it.

Aside from coming  to ZeroHedge to try to learn a little something here and there, it's the absurdly Fucking hilarious and witty remarks that keep me coming back over the years. I Fucking Love y'all.

Oh and "take action" thank you for that Stevens remix...that was side splitting!

And a lot of that is monitored and stored. Can you imagine the capacity to do that? I can't.

Overly commericalized pie chart.

Saddam, 'front-run' is the correct pluperfect past tense.

Grammar-nazi, I be, hmmmm....



When nine hundred years old you become, look this good you will not; and participles you shall hang not.

Porn, telecom, Amazon, Hulu and the rest. add in retail and inventory and VPNs, plus all the academic traffic, there's no end to the stuff they left off, but the stuff they left off dwarfs the stuff they depicted. Half my XFinity TV traffic comes right off the web. No mention of that.

"Serious traffic jam out there."


Gut-check time.

I'm sitting here ripping along at 5-7mgs/s, downloading torrents, reading the net, and I haven't had any problems, for more than a few minutes, sporadically, ever.

And neither have you.

The net is just fine.

What is the goal of people who tell us it's not?
