HIMYM AU: Barney finds out that Robin works for S.H.I.E.L.D as Agent Hill (Part 1)

They’re mixing two different universes together and yet it still makes waaay more sense than the finale.

….you know what, it really does.

HIMYM finale headcanon accepted. And then they pretend to get divorced and Robin/Maria distances herself from her friends and a couple years later someone captures footage of Maria Hill during a big superhero battle and she has to come clean to everybody and THEY ALL RESUME BEING FRIENDS AND NONE OF THE REST OF THE FINALE HAPPENS and also, later, the group accidentally meets the Avengers, and Barney spends the entire time convinced Tony is hitting on Robin (which Tony plays into to screw with him) and Lily, Tracy and Natasha disappear somewhere to bond and Steve is both charmed and weirded out by Marshall and Ted is left to try and socialize with Clint, who just sits there quietly letting Ted dig himself a deeper and deeper hole as his questions and overtures get more and more awkward. 

And Robin/Maria is all, “I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. I KNEW IT. KNOCK THAT OFF RIGHT NOW. YES, YOU.”

So Tony lets Barney off the hook and Barney immediately starts awkwardly fanboying all over him, and Clint lets Ted off the hook and cracks up and Ted is all “wait what you have a facial expression?!

And Robin/Maria goes to find Natasha and drink until the whole thing is over. Never again. This is never happening ever again. (It happens again.)

How to lie with statistics: The relationship between Florida’s Stand Your Ground law and gun deaths.
At Junk Charts, Kaiser Fung drew my attention to a graph released by Reuters.  It is so deeply misleading that I loathe to expose your eyeballs to it.  So, I offer you the mishmash above.
The original figure is on the left.  It counts the number of gun deaths in Florida.  A line rises, bounces a little, reaches a 2nd highest peak labeled “2005, Florida enacted its ‘Stand Your Ground’ law,” and falls precipitously.
What do you see?
Most people see a huge fall-off in the number of gun deaths after Stand Your Ground was passed.  But that’s not what the graph shows.  A quick look at the vertical axis reveals that the gun deaths are counted from top (0) to bottom (800).  The highest peaks are the fewest gun deaths and the lowest ones are the most.  A rise in the line, in other words, reveals a reduction in gun deaths.  The graph on the right — flipped both horizontally and vertically — is more intuitive to most: a rising line reflects a rise in the number of gun deaths and a dropping a drop.
The proper conclusion, then, is that gun deaths skyrocketed after Stand Your Ground was enacted.
This example is a great reminder that we bring our own assumptions to our reading of any illustration of data.  The original graph may have broken convention, making the intuitive read of the image incorrect, but the data is, presumably, sound.  It’s our responsibility, then, to always do our due diligence in absorbing information.  The alternative is to be duped.
