Yep.

It would appear that Trump's and our luck has run out.

Keep in mind it's Presidential scholars, not voters.

Seems to me that 18 may be generous for Lincoln's luck. Hard to think of a way he was lucky.

Perhaps from the perspective of historians, his dramatic tenure and violent death made him "lucky" enough to leave a much larger mark on history than if he had just had to muddle through an uneventful Presidency.

Yeah, that was a miserable Presidency. Thanks Buchanan.

For a hick from the sticks it took luck to get to Washington.
While the war was escalating he was lucky not to lose the capital and capitol.
From what I've read about Mary he was lucky to get shot.

This chart says as of 10 years ago 29.2 miles a year for each inhabitant of the US. I know a shitload of people who ride zero so somebody is out there riding a awful lot of miles.

Road riding in the US is suicidal. It's too bad because places like the Finger Lakes are amazing to ride and sight see.

another thing to think about xoB is that once you're astride the bike, it's not that hard to ride a mile. and once you've gone a mile (or more) you're probably gonna want to get back, so there's two right there, eh? of course you know how to ride a bike, how could you forget, right? I'm just sayin, like here, in my area, I don't have easy access to the trails like our resident gearhead above. I *have to* ride on the road if I want to travel on the bike at all unless I go to the hassle of installing the bike rack, loading them up, and traveling to a trail. Even then, I prefer pavement because of the limits of my equipment.

Part miles, part km.
No China.
Take a lot of math to make it understandable.

No, the chart is all in kilometres, I added a conversion (in another color) for the US distance because that's what we use. It doesn't change the chart, I was addressing the distance (which I find hard to believe) purported to represent every inhabitant.

Why do we need China? First of all it would be impossible to get reasonably accurate numbers. Secondly, they don't have the motor vehicle traffic or roads that reflect the west. It would be apples and oranges.

Hitler also used similar misinformation techniques. Just saying. (Leaving extremists to maybe learn from history.)

First time I've seen the breakdown by age, in this cae PA, of not deaths or hospitalized, just positive cases. Of course lack of testing makes this and every tabulation questionable.
