Wine and Violent Crime - It's not what you think.
For no other reason than this highly amuses me, I bring you a graph of wine consumption versus violent crime rates. If everybody would just drink more wine we would all be better off. Thankfully, we have Black Box wine, a wonderful invention and great improvement over box wines of the past.
A great new web 2.0 service called Swivel launched today. People from all over the world can upload data and compare one thing (like wine consumption) to another (like violent crime rates). How exactly will I use this in my daily life? Well, I probably won't. But for people into that sort of thing, it seems like a great leap forward for the sharing of information. What will we, as a global community, do with that information?
