Graphing 11/22/21

But that’s not what this advertisement did either.  No, this advertisement actually did something that is very common in statistics, namely, reset the baseline.  See, the graph’s base was not set to zero.  The baseline was quite high (I don’t have an exact number).  The graph was set to the low point in the fluctuations rather than zero.  This has the effect of making those relatively small fluctuations seem enormous.
