I'm going to like this post whenever someone tries to use a correlation as a cause for something

these are very skewered numbers, as you're chosing what ratio both of the variables are, on both of the numbers.
using different rates on the variables to make them match up
which basically can make any upward-going line match with any other upward going line, even if one was going up by 50 per day, and the other by 1 per decade.
