Are all Olympic rings treated equal? A Tumblr page titled oceaniaeuropeamericasafricaasia visualizes countries’ statistical differences via Games-themed infographic. The five regions are each assigned a certain colored ring that, in each image, grows or shrinks in accordance with the region’s current state. Tackling anything from hazardous waste to McDonald’s outlets to billionaires, the project cleanly represents contemporary disparities.
