Top Reddit comment:
- Telegu instead of Telugu, I don't know why this spelling wasn't checked.
- Urdu as a spoken first language distinct from Hindi is a bit silly IMHO. Would make more sense as "Hindustani". Bohot zyaada stupid hai.
- Lahnda? Really? Why not Punjabi? I am very confused by the use of the term Lahnda, which traditionally refers to a group of some 30 million speakers in the Punjabi-Sindhi continuum.
- Ukraine and Belarus are part of Asia Major
- The use of Asia Major unironically
- The part of the world where >50% of the humans of the world lives is "Asia Minor"
- Pakistan is the Middle East
- This is also a great example for /r/dataisugly - why are these languages next to each other? Why couldn't they be separate circles?
- Wouldn't language family be a better way to present some of this data? Seems like a missed opportunity
- And apparently Bangladesh is the Middle East too? It's the same color as Turkey?
Thanks for the point to https://np.reddit.com/r/dataisugly, where I found http://viz.wtf/post/122682298130/the-inside-out-watermelon
TIL this is an awful infographic.
