    While I can see how this could be produced (...by error...), I don't see why anyone would want to buy it...repeatedly.

    It would pair well with boiled bacon and cabbage.

    I recently had to do this a lot and there are valid reasons for it. Quite often the things I'm testing or analyzing are decided on razor-thin margins, so you have to truncate to give any meaning to the graph. Other times there are conflicting scales at work on the same graph and truncation can help cut out a lot of noise. But it's also a great way to willfully mislead people, for sure.

    I've been trying to cut down the shampooing. It's been pretty tough, since I'm soooo used to the way hair feels when it's shampooed daily.

    I made a chart for my co-written blog about how the Australian Football League distributes funding to the 18 clubs. For reference, the salary cap is was about $12.5 million this year.

    Putting GWS AFL into the search engine returns "Greater Western Sydney Giants", so I assume that.

    No mountains outside of the Tibetan Pleatu make the tallest 100 mountain list.

    What does "status quo" means here?
    And why 7200 meters exactly?

    I think they are referring to "above sea level". Everest, for example, isn't the tallest mountain in world, from its base, but is the highest point above sea level. That's true because the base of the mountain is so high above sea level to start from. So looks like it's a way to measure from a common reference. The tallest mountain from base to peak is actually in Hawaii, Mauna Kea. But nearly 20,000 feet of that mountain are beneath sea level.

    I find Spain being lowest and Greece highest fit with my image of the people from those countries
