Just as I'm trying to formulate a way to describe my incompetence, I think I may have figured it out... this should have been a bar graph, not a line graph...
(edit: and I lolled a little)
This was really confusing because he used a smooth line when a line with dots on it might have made more sense, I agree and thought the same thing, that a bar graph would have been more appropriate, something that made it obvious that we weren't talking about a continuous thing, but rather totaling "I had 4 conversations that lasted 23 seconds. I had 14 conversation that lasted 9 seconds" (etc.)
Also it was really confusing that the "second relationship" part was drawn like a little bell curve instead of the single event (the entire relationship being the very longest one-sided conversation) spike it was meant as.GodShapedBullet wrote:Sunsnail wrote:K, I'm an idiot.

The idea of it was that he had an entire relationship without realizing that the other person was just talking on the phone.
