Gapminder
 
Apologies to all who have seen this but I think it is cool. I heard this on the radio (BBC Radio 4) last week and thought I would search it out and share. Gapminder is a website on stats, all sorts of stats by a bloke called Professor Hans Rosling

http://www.gapminder.org/GapminderMe...iver_small.jpg

who seems to be master of stats on all sorts of things.

For example this is his explanation of world population growth (with Ikea boxes)

Hans Rosling on global population growth | Video on TED.com

The website contains all sorts of stuff and to be honest you are probably going to spend less time looking an finding something on there that is cool than I will spend making links to it all, so enjoy.

More videos here.

A documentary on this bloke is here. And another below.

Enjoy (I hope) :D
