the darker, the worser
2 years ago
That's racist.
2 years ago
But true
2 years ago
Worser isn't a word . Fact
2 years ago
Neither is cryax. FACT.
2 years ago
Shut the fuck up ! FACT
2 years ago
No you!

tons of murder in greenland... O_O
2 years ago
totally factual
2 years ago
Nobody lives there, it's pretty awful from what I've heard. They named it Greenland to fool people into moving there.
2 years ago
tons of murders in the wastelands of siberia as well.. and uninhabitable desert too...
not.
2 years ago
these are rates per 100,000 people
2 years ago
so a place with 5 people and one gets murdered would be dark? that makes literally 0 sense
2 years ago
it's called math
2 years ago
sorry shitler this has exactly what to do with 'math' ?
2 years ago
it's a relative proportion of total population
2 years ago
except its not
2 years ago
so... greenland has a population of approx. 50k people. 2 people get murdered there, lets just say, and this infographic will have us believe it's a dangerous place.
2 years ago
well in your example that would be a murder rate of .00004, it would be the same proportionally if 12,000 people were murdered in the US which has a population of 300 million.
2 years ago
chances are greater, per inhabitant, that you will be murdered in Greenland, than in say - France, so yeah
2 years ago
yet much less chance in reality.. because of population density...
2 years ago
well I don't think that is really demonstrated well in this "map"
2 years ago
good detective work there, Sherlock.
2 years ago
I was never making that point, but it doesn't mean the map is inaccurate, just poorly done.
2 years ago
so a map that misconstrues the 'big picture' is still accurate in your mind shitler?
see.. where im from a map or graph that is wrong is also inaccurate :P
2 years ago
FUCK YOU POSSUM SEE WHAT YOU'VE DONE!!!
2 years ago
I JUST LIKE MAPS!
2 years ago
um - what would be an "accurate" map yak?
what would it need to show?
2 years ago
Intentional homicide demographics are affected by changes in trauma care, leading to changed lethality of violent assaults, so the intentional homicide rate may not necessarily indicate the overall level of societal violence

aka. this graph may not accurately represent actual violent countries.
2 years ago
youd likely want to show a heatmap based off of population density and murder rates
as in how the actual density of people per square km relates to the amount of murders, so then you can say per square km or mile or whatever you want to use this place is more likely to be murdered in....
cuz i can pretty much guarantee you that if i lived in greenland... i would be pretty much not living in fear of being murdered....... ever

graphs like these are basically misconstruing certain pieces of data to try and show something that isn't true as true....
2 years ago
map also lists assisted suicide and euthanasia as murder ;//
2 years ago
this map?
2 years ago
yes that map
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_rate
read the disclaimers ;/
2 years ago
ah

so anyway, an accurate comparison would be to compare rural areas in one country to another, and urban areas in one country to another?

They should do the map like Call of Duty with a small blip of light for every murder.
2 years ago
Heather, this graph is not of "overall societal violence". It clearly just says murder rate by county.
2 years ago
* possum puts on TR mask now... *


list of Canadian provinces with murder rates lower than 3 per 100,000:
Ontario
New Brunswick
Quebec
Newfoundland
PEI
Nova Scotia
BC
Alberta

list of US states with murder rates under 3 per 100,000:
Connecticut
Montana
RI
Washington
Mass.
SoDak
Wisc.
Wyoming
Nebraska
Oregon
Maine
Hawaii
Nodak
Idaho
Minnesota
Utah
Iowa
Vermont
New Hamphire

extra fact - US murder rates per 100,000 have dropped steadily from a high of 10.2 in 1980, to 4.7 in 2011
2 years ago
Did you run those number by yak first?
2 years ago
shouldnt this take in population density?
prolly huh
2 years ago
they are from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime
2 years ago
murder rates dropped in the US because abortion was legalized, fact.
2 years ago
all dem unwanted babies are now dead, in jail, or dun growd up
2 years ago
"rates per 100,000" - yeah, it takes in pop density
2 years ago
clearly you havent seen how big ontario is compared to say.. pei?
so no.. it doesnt take population density into it.. thats my point... thats also why you are seeing greenland as dark

so its either really off... or its taking into account something else
2 years ago
lol
2 years ago
Here you go Yak, homicide count(2009) divided by population density(2010) according to UNdata numbers.

Don't worry, the amount of naked possum is staggeringly low
2 years ago
And also, Canada didn't do too hot, hitting in at nr 10.
2 years ago
I live in one of the worst place in Canada our murder per capita rate is quite high... but in total the amount of murders dwindles in comparison to the US.

Also if you consider gun homicides, Canada had almost 180 in 2009... America had almost 10,000... do that math Einstein.
2 years ago
Ontario, fuck yeah! a little darker than i ecpected
2 years ago
I* expected*
2 years ago
You do realize Ontario has a murder rate of less than 3 per 100,000... that seems quite safe...
2 years ago
I don't think there has ever been a murder in my area. Not counting the time we murdered all those Sioux.

Actually, I'll make a bold prediction. If the NFL expands to Europe, the first team will be the newly-relocated London Jaquars.

* ClaudeBallz bolts *

Good call, Claude, as that's the same prediction that every NFL analyst is making, and have been for months now. That and the fact that there really isn't a big enough market for them in Jacksonville.
2 years ago
I will move where ever the jags move. I am that much of a fan.
2 years ago
OKAY THAT'S IT. LOOK AT HOW MANY FUCKING FANS WERE THERE AT BUFFALO AND MIA. FUCKING NO FANS. NOW LOOK AT ALL THE FANS AT EVERBANK FIELD (THE JAGS STADIUM) FOR THE NYJ V JAGS GAME. DON'T FUCKING TRY THAT SHIT ON ME. JAGS FANS ARE LITERALLY THE BEST ANS IN THE NFL. WE HAVE NOT HAD A BLACK OUT IN YEARS.
