A simple bar chart on letter distribution

Raymond Chen

I was visiting a colleague’s office in another building and I spotted a whiteboard on which the following enigmatic bar chart was drawn. The source data for the analysis was left unspecified.

Letter Distribution
    S   N   O   P   D   G  

It looks like there’s an entire Web site devoted to profound charts like this. For example, a graph of beer bottle distribution as a function of the number of bottles taken down and passed around.

When I showed this Web site to one of my friends, he responded, “Oh, great, now I’m not going to get anything done for a week and it’s all your fault.”

Unfortunately, the charts on graphjam appear to have diverged in recent months from the site’s original conception as a reinterpretation of music and popular culture. Now it’s just snarky charts.
