Some Awesome Spurious Correlations

Take a look at these awesome spurious correlations. I have seen a similar list before --- perhaps even the same one? --- and it's possible that I ever blogged about this list at some point (though, if so, I can't find the entry). However, these plots are fantastic, so go take a look at them.

Obviously, I really like the last one, though naturally I wonder if applied mathematics degrees were included. (Now where did I put that uranium...?) I am also amused to see an apparent peak in the revenue of arcades in 2008. I am really surprised that the peak is this recent. (The data only goes through 2009, but I am assuming that arcade revenues haven't gone back up.)
