@Popcap I don't know about kindergarten, but I`ll assume you were inflating the expression slightly for the sake of the point. Just so everyone knows, there`s a word for that. They`re called hyperboles. Now that I`ve clarified, no one may whine about it. Maybe 3rd or 4th grade.

1000 characters is tl;dr? Even in the pathetically deficient USA, Kindergarten children are taught to gloss over 1000 character essays and provide a 12 word synopsis inside of 60 seconds.
Most people understand the point of this diagram. Regardless of the name of the diagram, if the diagram is conveying the idea, it is appropriate. A diagram of a complexity too great to be understood by the common observer is a stupid m***af****n' diagram.
> No sir. The diagram is correct. This Venn Diagram is showing the intersection of three sets.
No, it is not. The intersection of two sets is the set of all of the elements that belong to both sets. The intersection of the set of all doctors and the set of all prostitues is the set of all people who are both doctors and prostitues. This diagram is using the overlapping areas to represent the union of sets, which is not correct.
I am aware of what it is trying to say, but it isn't saying it correctly. This diagram is trying to say that doctors, prostitutes, and TSA agents all get paid to touch your junk. In other words, anyone who is a doctor OR a prostitute OR a TSA agent gets paid to touch your junk. That is NOT an intersection; that is a union. What this diagram is actually saying is that anyone who is a doctor AND a prostitute AND a TSA agent gets paid to touch your junk. That is an intersection.
