Humans in general are soooooo fucking much better at recognizing shapes and size vs numbers.

Because math is a learned skill but you know instinctually if that cave lion is big enough to eat you.

Graphs are used to lie.
They colored that graph in two colors and with this division for a reason.
Because somebody could pretend to say 'oh this is clearly not meant to be a graph my bad' the exact same way that Fox says 'but look we labeled the axis - you just thought that the size of the bar has any impact - you are so dumb'
