from twitter: "pie charts are the Comic Sans of data viz." priceless.

now all we need for an election scandal is a 2-dimensional grid of choices where the barcodes from each row are placed closer to the previous choices than their own rows, so people get confused and scan wrong.

which would be much about nothing except that sort of thing already happens-- with layout and with elections.
I think you maymisunderstand what is being discussed, which admittedly is not super easy to get to through what is posted here. The original article is here:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/apr/22/us-voting-machines-paper-ballots-2020-hacking

The barcodes are not printed out for you to see beforehand. They're printed on-demand with your ballot after you've made your selections. Honestly the BMD is basically just doing the job of a writing utensil, with the barcode adding a layer of obfuscation (and theoretically accuracy on the scanning side).

The voter will use a touchscreen to vote, then the BMD will print out the votes. Theoretically, the voter will look over that ballot, make sure it is correct, and insert it into an optical scanner that will quickly count it and save the paper in a secure lockbox.


If the machine were compromised and giving you your honest choice in text but telling a lie in the barcode it wouldn't be detected until someone did a hand count, because the machine scanner only looks at the barcode.
The barcodes are not printed out for you to see beforehand. They’re printed on-demand with your ballot after you’ve made your selections.

thanks for clarifying-- youre right, the concern i posted falls apart with that.

My neighborhood is full of Chihuahuas. Some run free in the alleys. I once got chased on my bike by one. It was terrifying. I prefer thoughtful Chihuahuas, like this one I found on the way to work this morning.

Mowerbot Keeping The Lawn In Check Since 1998

Words go through gazes,
crippled by long silences,
love doesn't hold the heart,
doesn't caress the soul,
it goes out in the throat
day in, day out.

Nothing stays,
it keeps dying,
by dragging and dropping life
on the cliff of time.

I rag the paper I write,
I'm not erasing, I'm throwing it away.

***

Parole attraversano sguardi,
storpiate da lunghi silenzi,
L'amore non stringe il cuore,
non accarezza l'anima,
si spegne in gola
giorno dopo giorno.

Nulla rimane,
continua a morire,
trascinando la vita
sulla scogliera del tempo.

Straccio la carta che scrivo,
non cancello, getto via.

"First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice...who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a “more convenient season.” — Martin Luther King Jr., “Letter From a Birmingham Jail”"

You were right about the 48 bus still closing down; apparently it'll happen in October. A 48 bus came along as I was approaching the bus stop in LB station, so I was able to ask the driver about it.

I got off the 48 at the bus stop before Well St, and started to get on a 388 that came along, but the driver said that he wasn't going down Well St.

I thought it must be in connection with the gas-connected road works by Tesco, but when I turned into Well St there were a zillion (well, 7 or 8) double decker buses stranded in a queue, and cars having to turn around because they couldn't get past the buses; from a distance I didn't realise how many of them there were, then when I reached the front of the queue of buses it turned out that Well Street was cordoned off by the police just before where I live. So I had to go a long way around the houses to get home.

Perhaps the buses were stranded because of parking on the other side of the road stopping them from turning around or something, but there are plenty of side streets they could have gone down, so it's a bit weird. The only other thing I can think of is perhaps a phoned-in threat of a bomb being on one of them, but that doesn't account for the street being cordoned off. I put some searches into Google but can't find anything about what's going on.

The bus at the back was a huge double-deck fancy-pants white and chrome vehicle with all black windows; some band perhaps will be a bit late getting back from a gig (or on their way to the next one).

Anyhoo, the whole thing is a weird big mystery.
