lol, the graph also shows that sales leveled off around 1979 and started dropping... so should they have stayed there according to your reasoning...!?

statistical analysis of any kind represented in graphic form will always show peaks, valleys, and plateaus along its trajectory. you can't base your whole argument on an arbitrary portion of that trajectory! there's over 30 years of data represented there: to accurately asses the trend you have to look at the entire trajectory. (this is pretty basic stuff man, come on!)

the point you're trying to make, unfortunately, is just another case of an individual trying to frame the discussion in absurd form to support their position.

it doesn't wash.
