NFA: So, according to your graph, autism leads organic food sales. An increase in autism is causing people to buy organic foods. Why is that an unusual concept?
uttertosh: It actually, more clearly, shows that people are being made increasingly aware, and thus understanding better, two very serious social issues.They're both; buying organic food, due to better awareness and understanding of environmental issues, and getting their kids checked out due to better awareness and understanding of Mental Health issues (rather than maintaining that their kids are just 'acting up' or 'spoiled brats')There. Graph interpreted properly.
ThisIsntMe: Where graph? There wolf. Here castle.
moistD: You sound autistic
for good or for awesome: NFA: So, according to your graph, autism leads organic food sales. An increase in autism is causing people to buy organic foods. Why is that an unusual concept?The point is that graphs can look like they prove something while actually proving nothing.
matthew_tray: I like how they point out right away that correlation does not equal causation.
FunkOut: Ninjas cause autism. Pirates are the cure.
sxacho: Small small business owner here. Specializing in high end residential home design on hurricane prone beaches. It was fun but I think it's over. I lived the dream and now I'm less than broke. We've got about $100 more or less left on our credit cards. My wife needs mental help which ourinsurance won't cover due to prior issues. I have a current job that I need to be creative and dazzling for, bit I can only work on it after the kids go to bed for a few hours but I can't find the mental mass at the end of the day. Or I can wake up after about 2 hours sleep and get started early in the morning,which is what i'm doing, in order to get anything done before the kids wake up. I used to be told I was in the right track,doing everything right. Bought a house at the right time, doing the right career, etc. I never did it for the money but it was nice to hear that it was going to be there doing what I wanted. I am ducked, I think. Bankruptcy is looking real good. My wife of its already planning her blog about life in the van down by the river. I've decided to sell my one asset, handed down by my family so that I can afford mental cadre for my wife. I already sold off my 401k. I'm farked. I know it. I made some wrong decisions. I never should have listened to all that advice about the American dream. If I were mentally unstable, I'd end up a fark headline.Happy new year all. It's gong to get better. Its got to./fark off, I'm on my phone give me a break// I'm still relatively happy
sxacho: And what? My wife just woke up angry from a nap with our child who never ever sleeps. And she cannot sleep with me because I snore sometimes but when I don't snore she stays up worrying about weather or not I'm going to snore or about the money or about some other such other such such stupid thing. Mental illness sucks. It sucks to live it and to live with it. Blame me for loving my wife. I'll get all itg on you.

fisker: So I am more likely to go shoot up a school if I eat organic food?
Rwa2play: And I laugh and laugh...and laugh some more at the nitwits who pay 25-30% extra for a sleight-of-hand advertising trick.
sxacho: To you too uttertosh. Thanks for being awesome. Keep it up.
Valiente: Rwa2play: And I laugh and laugh...and laugh some more at the nitwits who pay 25-30% extra for a sleight-of-hand advertising trick.Think different.

T.rex: How does 'awareness and understanding' have anything to do with the choice to buy organic food? People assume the word organic implies 'more healthy'. it does not... Its genetically modified. Its actually less 'natural' than something that grew normally.
jaspyrnyte: So uh Utter, Sxacho & Namegoeshere..you guys have a better new year, k?
Chariset: Seems likea. The same parents who buy organic food are concerned enough to have their kids checked for autism spectrum disorders, leading to more diagnosesORb. Parents of autistic kids are buying organic in hope of lessening the symptoms.
