    all those douches complaining about his restricting the range on his graphs are cracking me the fuck up!

    i did the restriction purposely to show the differences. i gave them links and variables to replicate what took me no more than 20 minutes in the middle of the night in a break between coding to do.

    i do do a lot of range restriction, but that’s because it’s a blog format and i’m constrained for space. even on the vertical if it gets too long people have to page down a lot, and if i keep the graphic small old people can’t read it, etc. etc.

    It’s a pity the data don’t break it down by type of alcohol. I have my suspicions about Yuengling vs. MFJ though.

    @razib- There is a lot of screaming about how you are misleading and misrepresenting without any real detail on how they are supposedly being led down the garden path. it is baffling…

    This might explain why I went on a booze cruise with a group from my university this past weekend and half of us had been cut off at the boat bar by 9pm.
