Chart of the Day

Via Felix Salmon, this might be the most perfect blog chart ever: totally fascinating but without any serious redeeming value at all.  Even better, it provides support for virtually any politico-cultural argument you care to make.  It comes from Credit Karma:

Based on a sample of 20,000 credit scores, our data shows that there is a difference of average scores based on what email service users prefer. Interestingly, Gmail and Comcast users came out the top with a higher average, while AOL and Yahoo users had the lowest average credit scores.

Hah!  Stupid Yahoo users do poorly!  But — southerners seem to do well!  Snooty Gmail users aren't as great as they think!  Etc.  I'll bet David Brooks could squeeze an entire column out of this.
