• Could Sitcom Characters Really Afford Their Cribs? [Infographic]

    Due to the nature of TV, a large space is needed to film in, so sitcom characters tend to live in pretty big spaces. But sometimes the space is so big as to make it extremely difficult to suspend disbelief. This infographic takes 15 TV characters from current and classic shows and ranks their ability to pay for their homes. Did you believe Al Bundy could afford his two-story, 3 bedroom house on his shoe salesman salary? Not even close. And Danny Tanner, the happiest widower on TV, paying for that giant house in San Francisco for his 3 daughters and 2 best friends as host of a local morning show? They’d be on the street in no time!

  • The Daily Schedules Of (Successful) Creative People [Infographic]

    Is there a perfect schedule to maximize one’s creative output? Probably not, if these varied schedules are of any indication. What’s more important is to probably just have a schedule in the first place. It’s interesting to note, too, that the notion of creative types being night owls who sleep in until the afternoon is not all that true. Most of these folks are up by 6 AM. So what’s your excuse?

  • Your State’s Highest-Paid Employee Is Probably A Coach [Infographic]

    According to this infographic there is a good chance that your state’s highest paid employee is a coach.

  • Evolution Of Famous Logos [Infographic]

    Track the evolution of some of the most recognizable brand logos of the last century with this infographic. Sure the simple, dignified minimalism ever-present with today’s logos is better than some of the busy of the 40s, but the Microsoft should have stuck with their 1981 logo. The font looks like something off an old videogame, maybe “Micrsoft: Clippy’s Voyage” for the Atari 2600. The rundown of the worst logos at the bottom is pretty entertaining, too. What were you thinking, Kidsexchange??

  • The Global Guide To Hand Gestures [Infographic]

    Plan on an international vacation any time soon? You might be wise to look at this infographic and learn what common hand gestures mean around the world.

That’s more confusing than flammable and inflammable! Source: Cheap Flights

  • NASCAR Vs Formula 1 [Infographic]

    Although we all know that NASCAR versus Formula 1 debate was settled by that thought-provoking Will Ferell documentary “Talladega Nights,” there are some interesting facts presented in this infographic. Obviously, since this comes from Formula 1 sponsor Red Bull, the info aims to show the superiority of the sport through technology, money, and crazy steering wheels, but the fact that NASCAR, a sport limited to just the United States, is a viable competitor is pretty impressive. Plus, that Jean Girard character was a real jackass. U-S-A! U-S-A!

  • Toilet Talk: Cell Phone Usage In Restrooms [Infographic]

    Although you may not admit, chances are you’ve used your phone in the bathroom. Don’t feel bad, most folks are equally disgusting. Just look at the numbers on this infographic. The best thing about this, is it gives you a good idea of whose phone to never borrow. Apparently if you use the Android phone of a Gen Y male, you might as well just put your face on a toilet seat. And as someone who falls into that demographic, I really wish I could dispute that fact…as I post this from my bathroom.

  • This Brilliant Kurt Vonnegut Masters Thesis Was Rejected Because it Looked Too Fun

    Legendary author, Kurt Vonnegut, known for his dark, but fulfilling work with sprinkles of satire and humor created a final thesis for his Masters at the University Chicago, but was rejected because he claimed the teacher thought “it was so simple and looked like too much fun.” Vonnegut was an anthropology student at the time, finishing up his final thesis which he would go on to note was his “prettiest contribution” to the culture which he would eventually thrive in publishing literary classics like “Slaughter House 5″, “Cats Cradle” and “Breakfast of Champions”. His theory was that the main character of every story has ups and downs throughout the duration of the piece which can be graphed revealing a visual “shape” of every story.

  • How Does A Curling Stone Curl? [Infographic]

    Watching curling for the babes is fun and all, but at some point it would be cool to actually understand what is going on.

You can read a scientific study about the physics at work or you can take the easy way out and just read this infographic. It has pictures!

  • Your Brain On Beer vs Coffee (Infographic)

    The distinction between alcohol and caffeine is a tried and true argument when kickstarting the creative juices. Countless (majority) of great writers, artists and musicians have been under some form of influence when creating brilliant works, but is that the most conducive form of inspiration? The college years are a perfect example of this. Both alcohol and caffeine encouraged in every facet of college life. Stay awake to party, stay awake to get to class. Drink to get a party buzz, drink to get through an auditorium lecture on the history of post modern jazz. We get it. What this infographic by ILOVECOFFEE.JP does is breaks down the chemical functions of both coffee and beer, the good, bad and best time to drink each.

  • Aerial Heat Map Reveals Where People Run In 22 Major Cities

    One of our more popular stories from July 2012 titled “Aerial Data Visualisation Reveals Life In The United States” explored the hidden patterns and rhythms that make America work. Now the brilliant minds at FlowingData used publicly available data records from workout app RunKeeper to map where people run in 22 cities across America, Canada and Europe. The result is a series of gorgeous and intriguing visualizations. These maps reveal areas with the most foot traffic, indicated with thicker, darker lines. Other, less traveled routes are fainter and harder to see. It comes as no surprise that parks, waterways, and other more picturesque areas tend to be the most popular courses people take. However, the data Yau pulled for the project is not particularly comprehensive of all runners, just the ones who use RunKeeper. Data may also be skewed by other factors. The map of New York City, for instance, shows a dark outline which follows the route of the New York City Marathon, a race that includes over 50,000 runners. On the FlowingData website, Yau states that he hopes these maps are not only interesting to look at, but can also serve a greater purpose, such as helping to “plan future workouts or more »

  • Why Dehydration Is Making You Fat And Sick [Infographic]

    Drinking water is the worst. There’s no flavor…it doesn’t get you drunk…why bother? Well, if the eggheads behind this infographic know what they’re talking about, that stuff is actually pretty important. Digestive disorders, skin disorders, bladder and kidney problems, and fatigue are just some of the adverse effects from not drinking enough water. And as an added bonus, drinking water speeds up your metabolism and the lack of calories means it won’t contribute to your gross beer belly, you disgusting slob. So be sure to add a splash to your scotch (it opens the bouquet, you know) or perhaps forgo the alcohol and just drink the water. At least sometimes. 

  • The Brutal Anihilation of Blockbuster by Netflix (Infographic)

    No question Netflix was the catalyst behind the decline of movie rental giant, Blockbuster. Kind of. Blockbuster was already in hot water way before Netflix was on the grid, then in a feeble attempt to compete with Netflix Blockbuster thought offering more candy might entice more people to come rent a tangible rental, seriously, they did that. In 2002 an online streaming deal fell through with Blockbuster and Enron, from there Netflix capitalized and by 2004 it was game over. Netflix had it’s first profitable year breaking the $6.8 Million mark.

  • 13 Failed Predictions That Couldn’t Have Been More Wrong [Infographic]

    Did you ever have those positive-thinking musclemen come to your school when you were a kid, telling you to be a “dream maker” not a “dream breaker” before tearing phone books in half? Well, in their own insane way, they were really onto something. Throughout history, some of the world’s biggest innovations have been scoffed at as being an impossibility or simply a passing fancy. The electric light bulb? Automobiles? Those things are for niche enthusiasts and crackpot tinkerers. I’ll stick with candles and horses, thank you very much.
