Bipedalism is a dangerous and the data proves it.

Well this proves the "trail runners get hurt more in the back country debate". I don't see trailrunning on the list! wink.gif

Although it doesn't actually indicate it in any way, because it supports my preferred narrative I'd have to say that logic and common sense dictates, indeed mandates, that trailrunning is almost certainly included within the hiking category to begin with. Moreover, there's another graphic in the blog post that shows "who are the people triggering an SOS for?" Nearly 20% are made not for the inReach subscriber, but for a third person. Although it doesn't actually provide any further specificity whatsoever, under the same line of reasoning it seems manifestly obvious that these third party SOS overwhelmingly represent hikers triggering an SOS for woebegone trailrunners.

With this "logic" you might as well just declare it manifestly obvious that every slice of every graph is referring to elephants. It's obvious! The truth is the data simply doesn't say what you want to read out of it.

I believe my wholly unsupported inferences have simply followed the data, and have unwavering confidence in my unwarranted conclusions.

When Curtis Brothers rose to power in the Los Angeles business scene, he claimed that going based on gut feel was still the way to go over looking at these statistics

Lol, reminds me of something I watched on the world news tonight regarding an ex-NFL player. wink.gif

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Pie charts are hated in the data visualization industry. Too ambiguous. A bar chart would have been way easier to read. Add tool tips to show underlying data for each one. But in fact it does all boil down to 42.
