Plotted performance guaranteed not to predict future performance - Junk Charts
A quick visit to Bing Translate tells me that this chart illustrates the rates of return of different types of investments. The headline supposedly says "Only the risk pays". In many investment brochures, after presenting some glaringly optimistic projections of future returns, the vendor legally protects itself by proclaiming "Past performance does not guarantee future performance."

Oh, shit, git!
Git is hard: screwing up is easy, and figuring out how to fix your mistakes is fucking impossible. Git documentation has this chicken and egg problem where you can't search for how to get yourself out of a mess, unless you already know the name of the thing you need to know about in order to fix your problem.

So here are some bad situations I've gotten myself into, and how I eventually got myself out of them in plain english*.

A Practical Guide to Mixed Models in R | Julia Pilowsky
A mixed model is similar in many ways to a linear model. It estimates the effects of one or more explanatory variables on a response variable. The output of a mixed model will give you a list of explanatory values, estimates and confidence intervals of their effect sizes, p-values for each effect, and at least one measure of how well the model fits. You should use a mixed model instead of a simple linear model when you have a variable that describes your data sample as a subset of the data you could have collected.

Financial sustainability of local authorities 2018 visualisation - National Audit Office (NAO)
The data we present shows changes in income and spending alongside analysis of factors such as budget overspends and use of reserves. These figures can change for a range of reasons such as local political priorities, changes in local demand and changes in government policy and priorities. Consequently, comparisons between places need to be undertaken with caution. The complexity of factors underlying the data means that differences in figures presented here should not be viewed as indicative in any way of the current ‘performance’ of an authority. Any apparent differences between places should be seen as an opportunity to gather more information and build a richer understanding.

The data in the report was used to present a picture of the key trends affecting the sector or particular groups of authorities. The analysis was not designed to identify specific authorities that were felt to be at risk. While we present data for individual authorities in the visualisation, the purpose is to allow for comparison between individual authorities and comparator groups on individual indicators. While the data in these visualisations is potentially relevant to an assessment of the financial sustainability of individual authorities it by no means represents a full assessment. As suc
