[OT] Weighted distribution of Numbers

I'm not plotting this but using it for searching.

I'm not really lying. I'm trying to come up with the raw numbers from many
individual components. It's like "Gone with the Wind" and "Apocalypse Now"
both getting 100 on Rotten Tomatoes. But if you looked under the hood and
added up components such as sound, costumes, artwork, casting... and applied
a weight to each then "Apocalypse Now" might get a raw rating of 800 and
"Gone with the Wind" get a 790. But they are both so close to the top I
would want them to both get 100. I can do this via the "human factor" by
manually adjusting some of the results(mostly at the top) but I would like
to somewhat automate it so when the components change I will do a
re-calculation run and say the top number goes up by 25 all the manual
adjustments go out the window. I want this to be somewhat automated.

I was thinking the same, but was to afraid to say it. Yes, the actual name
is "lying".

However, there might be an honest attempt to display crowded dots or icons.
