Let me share with you something very private and personal: my credit score. Here you are. Go nuts:

Pretty meaningless, huh? That’s because the numb-nuts at Chase, who have INFINITE financial resources, scale this chart with a low of 300. My credit score is 800 (which is kind of low for me, but there ya go). Thus I have a chart which is just useless garbage. I see this all the time.
