1. I believe the descriptions ("things that…") should be in the circles, and the actual objects should be in the overlap. Am I right?

Yeah, it would work too!

No that wouldn't work. The intersections (overlaps) of two actual objects is, in this case, what that group or person owned. If you had what an individual person or group owned in the circles, then it would only work if you added more objects so all four of the overlaps are covered (and you'd have to lose one "things that" description). Regardless, Venn diagrams are typically constructed such that you have a singular thought/item/thing, etc in each circle, while the overlaps are the "collective". You could construct one here, though, where 1 circle is "things rednecks own", 1 circle is "things MJ owns", and 1 circle is "things alien conspiracy folks own", and then the intersection of the 3 circles would be "things that should be kept out of the reach of children". But, then you would lose the aspect of the chart that identifies these owned items (firearms, flying sauces and rabid pets).

This is highly subjective, I could make the exact same chart and switch out all kinds of things and various people would find it works depending on their location, politics, religion, lack thereof, education, job etc.

If you live in Sweden for example where ever adult is required to own and train with a gun you're outlook would be different.

Your politics are showing just based on the items you choose to include.

• ABlueMoon says:

Wait, are you saying all adults in Sweden are required to own a gun? :S I'm from Sweden and I have never met a single person in my entire life that owns a gun…. <_<

For those of us who are gun owners as well as geeks, this is a little offensive. I have to agree with carbonware's comment, your political leanings are on display by including firearms as things "crazy people" own. I stopped reading TechCrunch awhile back because the political propaganda got a little too thick. Please don't make me stop reading GAS!

• Geeks are Sexy says:

Hey TheTruthHurts.. I only have one thing to say in answer to your comment: I'm Canadian. I just posted this because it was humorous.. there was no underlying political motivation behind this. Sorry if it offended you.
