Combine Stats with Pictures to Make Them More Interesting

Let’s examine at another slide, also from Bill Gates’ TED talk. Notice how the statistic, “Paducah, Kentucky, has enough uranium to power the US for two centuries,” is made much more interesting as a result of having been placed on an image that shows thousands of uranium barrels:
