Huh. That graph is interesting. I wonder what the cause of that is. Would you mind linking to the data source so I can play with it? Hmm. That graph is number, not proportion, so I guess large changes in population would also aeffect that graph? Huh. That is an interesting graph, thank you! (Please do not interpret this ask as being critical, I'm just expressing interest.)
sure. As I said in the post, the source is World Bank Poverty Data. I must warn you that if you want to play around with it, the data is kind of a pain to use, as it appears to have been collected at different rates for different countries.
Also, yes, these are raw numbers, which means the rest of the world’s poverty-reduction has barely kept up with population growth…
twocubes replied to your post “neoliberals posting about how World Poverty Has Fallen Massively in…”i wanna see the details
is there an emoticon for “relaxed melancholy”?
i’m going to make a separate post about the missa fukuma song I linked to just because I’d like to see if other people like either it or the rest of the album and buried in that large post a lot of people probably skipped over it.

A piece of advice for all my followers: Sometimes one wants to do things for reasons that are neither good nor bad. Do those things too.

The following is a list of people I tagged to do this meme, and certainly not a bunch of people who @mentioned me in a copy of this meme pretending I tagged them to do it that I’ve edited into this post so that it looks like I did what I was supposed to and tagged at least ten people to do it:
did you try shreklovesme.not or similar
well, I don’t think the .not tld is available for registration, but there is one thing…
ok, im going to need a url for my new web venture. how about this
oh, ok. guess it’s back to the original plan, then
[…] so having a clear distinction — even one as vague and somewhat terrifying as “she walks like a human but is something else, something unknowable that wants to be your friend” — clears things up.
some day, if all goes well, people will talk about me like this…
hektor41 replied to your photoset “bonus points if you can come up with some visualizations~”
what about a general form of trangular numbers to the nth power?
that’s way too easy ;p
(unless you mean a general visualization, which could be neat)
