That's fine by me. I don't fight the battles. I just don't fucking care.
What Makes A Good Data Visualization? Hi there. I’m David McCandless, creator of this site and author of two infographic mega-tomes, Information is Beautiful (2009) and Knowledge is Beautiful (2014). I’ve created a lot of data and information visualizations. Around 540 over six years. (An eye-bleeding, marriage-crumpling average of 1.7 per week). There are 196 in my new book, Knowledge is Beautiful (out now). 10 People Who Survived Your Worst Nightmares Miscellaneous There are certain sets of circumstances, should you ever find yourself in them, where the most reasonable course of action is to reflect on what a good life it’s been and prepare to check out. We all like to hear nail-biting stories of those who beat the odds and managed to overcome certain death, but these stories are of course highly statistically unlikely—that’s why it’s called “certain death”. As for the following people, they decided that statistics be damned, they weren’t going to be one. These average, everyday people found themselves in situations that are normally only survived by waking up from the nightmare, yet they’re still with us today… and with some pretty harrowing tales to tell.
