Are you tired of losing arguments online due to lack of data and fancy graphics? Do you believe that correlation is equal to causation? If you answered "yes" to both of these, go ahead and choose a topic, your position on that topic, and an appropriate supporting argument. Since effects of actions are not always felt immediately, you can also choose a "delay" that relates a value to past values of another one.

Note: I am not responsible for any actions resulting from the misinterpretation of this data.

Other note: Yes, the data used to generate these graphs are real. All of the points are data that were measured in the same year. I updated this page with the sources below.
