Shifted Social Media Usage, Among Teens
Facebook took the biggest hit in the past three years. Snapchat and Instagram got more likes.
One Drink Per Day, Your Chances of Developing an Alcohol-Related Condition
While a drink a day might increase your risk of experiencing an alcohol-related condition, the change is low in absolute numbers.
in an amazingly good way.
Actually I’m going to vote for just ridiculous. With the exception of the Wizard of Oz example (it provides context), nothing above elucidates, and in most cases they obfuscate and distract from the actual point. It’s a chuckle for stat geeks who have forgotten how other people see the world.
Sorry if that seems harsh. This is an excellent example of form promiscuously seeking content, rather than valuable content seeking form. There are good data visualization posts here at times, but this is not one of them.
… thus being filed in “data underload”. it’s a joke. get it?
i think i need to put ‘joke’ in big, bold letters.
These rock, IMHO. I guess you have to have a certain kind of sense of humor, overexposure to data analysis, and a familiarity with popular culture and iconic cinema (classic films whenever they were made). For anyone else, a “JOKE” label probably wouldn’t help.
In 200pt font. Seriously. I guess people need everything in big bold letters these days.
This would be great if I were 50 or older… but I’m not!
I presume the “50” is referring to the IQ.
I’m 19 and i get them all
THIS IS SO COOL
I can’t figure out the last one.
#8 on the AFI top 100 movie quotes list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AFI%27s_100_Years%E2%80%A6100_Movie_Quotes
I figured that’s what it might be. But I still don’t get it. Maybe 2 checklists labeled “Me” and “You” and force checked out only in the “You” list?

Awesome! You don’t need “Joke” in big letters, just readers with a sense of humor.
You should post a few of these to Threadless or maybe offer several as posters. As a film student, I know lots of people would love these!
clever, funny … although the funniest is the commenter who actually took it seriously
Agreed. On both counts.

Clever. That euprosyne guy has to be kidding, right? Or maybe he’s a robot. Remind me not to hang out with him.
I’d have loved to see my favorite represented – “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room!” (from Dr. Strangelove, #64 on the Wikipedia list). It could resemble the GWTW rendering, with no intersection between “places you can fight” and “the War Room.”
These suck. Creative enough to do something done a million times before. Not clever enough to do it halfway good. :\

Had to add my own:
Ha! There was this little part of my day that wasn’t made yet and you just made it. Thanks. These are great!
I love these. Thanks for posting!

I understand “May the Force be with you.” but it just doesn’t work for me. Han Solo has no use for a lightsaber in any case.
Wow. Seriously? Who pissed in everyone’s froot loops? I think it’s very cute, funny and apparently not for people with stickupass syndrome :)
right on grrlfriend.

Not nearly as good as the rap music version from a few years back.

Hate to say it, but these don’t work very well. Each one is a joke broke up into so many pieces that when it finally comes together it’s more of an “oh… aha” moment than “oh, haha!”
Many better examples on graphjam
Brilliant! I’m voting for Rick Blaine, Casablanca. Funny stuff.

I have to agree, for the most part these don’t quite “work”, the re-framing of the quote into “data form” is just too forced and unnatural, it feels awkward.
If you’re interested to see how a true master of the style works, I recommend Jessica Hagy. She’s one of those people with a rare and amazing gift: the ability to communicate “everyday” things comfortably and naturally using the language of data visualization. She demonstrates this, over and over again, in every new installment of the incredibly entertaining web series http://thisisindexed.com/
Yeah, well, I looked at that site, and it’s completely different. A: it’s hand drawn and B: it’s things she’s making up. Not movie quotes. She’s doing jokes. Her talent is making up jokes. The talent here is trying to represent a movie quote graphically. Different animal.
The Sunset Boulevard Quote graph is fantastic! :D
I agree that these are the worst graphical representations of pop culture. They are not funny, are not clever, and rely far too much on text rather than the way a graph will actually be read.
maybe u should write a PhD on the subject. HE’S JUST PLAYING AROUND FOR FREAK’S SAKE!!!!!

Fairly clever ≠ Funny
To add to the noise, most of these simply don’t work and aren’t all that funny. Just sayin’.
Okay, the last one would almost work if “Lightsaber” also was not checked as Han never had one, being that he wasn’t a Jedi (yeah, that’s right, I went there)

The Terry Malloy quote should have all three circles shaded, not just where they meet :D
Not as funny or as well done as the originals…

Nerd town luvz it.
It made me laugh!
I have seen books published of both film quotes and song lyrics like this. The problem with these is that they are not funny. To be improved you need to put the explanatory part in the caption or title phrased as a sentence, which makes people think and then realise – that’s what makes it funny.
Eg. Map of World with Africa highlighted.
Figure 1. Areas of the world with uncertain awareness of Christmas. Source Bandaid, 1984.
Just to add, the figures themselves are well made but the explanations don’t fully reflect the quote. e.g. #6 –
Go ahead, make my day!
All you need is the following title with the ‘not made’ segment labelled.
Title: Part of my day where I grant you permission to interfere.

I expected it to be so much funnier… what a waste of a great concept.
Hope someone picks up the idea and does it better.
