How Many Americans Are Killed By Police?

A question on so many minds is “How many Americans are killed by police?” The website killedbypolice.net is doing a good job at tracking data as far back as two years ago. While you can find details of each death on the site, I compiled the monthly numbers into an easy-to-read bar graph.     2013 May 104 deaths 2013 June […]

The TSA Doesn’t Care About Passenger Safety

Take even a casual glance at American airport security and it’s clear that the TSA doesn’t care about passenger safety.  Even the name “TSA” stands for “Transportation Security Administration,” having nothing to do with travelers and having everything to do with the objects that transport them; their behavior reflects this through the enigmas that are American Airport Security Checkpoints.

Detailed Taichung Population Density

This Is a Simple But Detailed Taichung Population Density Report If you’re moving to Taichung, you’re probably looking online to find a detailed Taichung population density information.  Officially, Taichung has 2.6 million people spread out over 1500mi2 translating into a population density of around 1800 per mi2, but that’s pretty misleading.  90% of the population lives in […]

Let’s Talk About School Shootings

I was sixteen years old when Harris and Klebold walked into Columbine High School and went on a killing spree.  We were in school when it happened – before the media-driven-fear-fest that was 9/11, there was Columbine.  Imagine being a teenager watching a school get destroyed…and discovering it’s being done by other students.  It was […]

Statistical Correlations of GDP Per Capita, Welfare, and Voting by State

I hear a lot of people talk about freeloaders, in every election.  Conventional wisdom dictates that the states with the most people taking handouts and the states with the lowest GDP per capita would vote Democrat, in hopes of improving their lives through government handouts.  Sadly, I rarely see statistics on these assumptions – only empty rhetoric. And […]
