    This is fascinating. I never would have dreamed that Americans eat more slowly than, say, Italians or the French, who emphasize slow savor of every meal.

    Looder:
    I’ve been consistently baffled by visual depictions of data since the time I could read. They confuse me. Looks like it happened again.

    Even worse, I had the idea reading this that it wasn’t about the speed with which people eat, but the amount of food they consume. With US at the top, I thought the point was that Americans eat too much, not too quickly.

    So I had it wrong at least twice. I can’t handle powerpoints, either.
