Fun With Pie Charts

Via Sandra over at OmniBrain, I learned about We Have Pie Charts, where just about everything you would never describe with a pie chart is described with a pie chart. Here are two of my favorites:

    It IS funny, but I have to point out that goldfish do NOT have a 3 second memory span. That’s a myth concocted by people to justify keeping them in goldfish bowls.

    ” IT IS time for the scales to fall from our eyes: scientists have claimed not only that goldfish have a memory span of up to three months, but that they can also tell the time.

    The fish, previously believed to have a memory of just a few seconds, can distinguish between different times of day and can also be taught to follow a routine, according to research. “
