F Train is Number Two Subway Line for CL Missed Connections

Huge thanks to Gawker for offering a statistical analysis of the Missed Connections section on Craigslist, and proving why interns are a valuable commodity. In terms of locales for missed connections, the subway is the most popular (35%), followed by restaurants/bars (17%) and the street (8%). After that, it's a huge mishmash of place and situations.

In terms of the subway, we were a little surprised to find that the 6 Train spawns the most listings, with 12%, but the F Train is second with 11%. The biggest surprise was that the A, N and 1 (9% each) placed ahead of the L (8%). This threatens to erode the very foundation of our world view.

Really excellent pie charts too. Check out the location pie chart and the subway line pie chart, the latter being reproduced at reduced size here.
