## Chart showing estimated reserves of elements

Some years ago (about 4–6 years, if I had to guess), I came across an infographic that showed various estimates for the reserves of various elements/ores that are known to exist. So, for example, we have (made-up numbers follow) 100 years' worth of lead, 50 years of yttrium, 400 years of copper, etc. The various elements were shown in a sort of circular bar chart, with elements having greater reserves extending further from the center. Can anyone help me track this chart down?

## What visual aids should I make to bring to a jury trial, and how?

I am going to have a day in court. There is an amount of relatively simple 2-dimensional data central to my case, that tracks the course two variable quantities over 9 years. I want the jury members to understand this data as easily and as well as can be. I'm guessing a few colored charts with x=time and y=the quantities would be a good way to accomplish this. But what exactly should I prepare to a accomplish this, in terms of size and layout? And what free software tools should I use to do it?

## Best Bubble Diagram/Chart/Map Software or Website

Google "bubble diagram" and check Google Images to see the sort of chart I'm trying to make. I'm interested in the sort of chart where I can put different topics in separate bubbles and then draw interconnections freely between any of them. I'm not talking about a "mind map" where everything radiates level-by-level from a central point, although what I'm looking for may be a variation of that or included in the same software or website package. I'd prefer something free since I don't do a ton of graphs, but I'm open to paying for something if it's really good. I like the idea of something online (maybe even with an associated app), but I'm not wedded to it. There's a million mindmapping options out there, but I find very few solutions for the decentralized bubble-mapping I'd like to do, so I'm interested in the best option.

## Trying to find old year end charts from Sirius XM radio channels

I’m a new fan of a XM radio, having held off on buying one for the last decade or so. I really liked the year end charts they did for a few of their stations, in particular XM U, AltNation, and Spectrum. I was able to find them going back to 2009 (mostly through their Facebook pages), but the previous years are completely invisible to Google so far as I can tell.

## I want to see fast food diagrams.

I really like those diagram posters they put up in fast food restaurants that show you the proper order of burger toppings, or the correct distribution of pepperoni slices per pizza. I'd like to see more of them, but Google is failing me. Maybe I just don't know the proper name for them. Surely somebody has a Tumblr of these or something, right? Ideally they'd include retro ones that go back a few decades. C'mon, hive mind, show me some taco assembly diagrams!

## Detective relationship charts

On cop shows, especially older shows, the detective(s) would often come up with a big chart involving thumb-tacking pictures of the suspects and victims, places of crimes, etc. to a big board in the "war room." They would often have yarn or string stretching from one picture to the next showing a relationship. After all the pieces were in place, they would circle their suspect with a black marker and cut to commercial. Is there a formal name for this type of chart or technique that is depicted in these cop shows? In general, where could I learn about how to organize complex sets of people, places, and relationships into an easy to digest chart? Many thanks!

## Where can I find a detailed poster explaining geological periods?

I'm trying to brush up on my geology, a science that pretty much passed me by, which is frustrating when people I work with casually start talking about Cambrian this, and Triassic that. Where can I find a large poster / chart detailing all the geological epochs and periods? The chart produced by the Geological Society of America is a good start, but it would be more useful if it was, say, annotated with important events ("Angiosperms evolved here! Gondwana separated here!"), and it it had maps of the positions of continents on it at various times. Has anyone seen anything like this? My searches for geology posters have mostly turned up pictures of mountains, or "Geology Rocks!" logos...
