Crown her with many crowns. The ILC fifth and only birthday party is so on brand right now!


Hi Everybody!

I Love Charts turns five in August, and we would like to celebrate, Why? Because we’ve never thrown a party, and never will again, so why not? Also, because it’s fun to have fun. Also because this time of year makes me feel a lot of feels and I want to share them with you in person.

So, here’s the deal…

What: A gaming party! 

Parties are weird and we aren’t that good at receiving attention in public, so let’s all do things that are more fun than standing around holding drinks. Let’s play cards, or board games, or role playing games, or whatever. 

Where: Die Koelner Bierhalle in Park Slope — featuring its huge wooden tables

When: 3pm - 10pm, August 23rd

Who: Everybody! 

All ages welcome. Please stop by, even if it’s just to say hi. We will be hanging out all afternoon and there will be plenty of games to be played, German food to be munched upon, large beers to be struggled through.

You are encouraged to bring your own games, and can just hang out and do fun stuff and won’t this be nice? And relaxed? And not like throwing a party? 

If you need to get in touch with us for some reason, hit up the ask box. For those to whom this is helpful: here’s the Facebook Event.

We hope to see you there! Feels! Feel them!

Hugs and hand-pounds,
Jason and Cody

We got games! See you today!

This bubble chart shows the correlation between a country’s level of development and the quality of its math education, as measured by Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) scores. The bubbles are sized by a country’s 20:20 ratio, which is “the ratio of the income of the richest 20% to that of the poorest 20%.” We can see that a large income disparity, evidenced by a high 20:20 ratio, also tends to correlate with both low PISA scores and development levels.
