  • Value Of Dollar In Burgers And Beers [Infographic]

    Lonely Planet’s “How To Land a Jumbo Jet” contains all sorts of useful information presented through 56 infographics. By far, the most useful of these is the visual guide below which illustrates the value of the US dollar in burgers and beers around the world. It’s a tad disheartening. I’ve been watching lots of “Lilyhammer” on Netflix and Norway looks like a great place to visit, but 10 bucks for a fast-food burger?? Guess I’ll just go to the Philippines instead and drink 70 cent beer. 

  • Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr With “King Holiday” From 1986 [Video]

    Martin Luther King, Jr Day was first celebrated as a national holiday on January 20, 1986.

  • A Look At Cisco’s New San Francisco Headquarters [24 Photos]

    San Francisco-based interior design firm Studio O+A recently designed the new offices at Cisco’s 110,000 square feet facility in San Francisco’s Mission Bay. The studio began by asking employees what they liked about their old office location. Overwhelmingly, the answers were natural light and collaborative spaces. Studio O+A had no trouble utilizing natural light thanks to the new office’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The enormous size of the office also allowed for a variety of informal and formal meeting spaces both indoors and outdoors. There are also chalkboards, whiteboards, and corkboards throughout the facility because you never know when inspiration will strike. What’s that? You need a break from your stressful day at Cisco? Just hop on your bike and take a ride through the office and maybe stop into the lounge and play a ditty on the piano. Oh, you don’t work there? Sucks to be you.

Now if only they could develop a definitive cure.

  • If Domestic Beer Commercials Were Honest [Video]

    I’ve got no problem with cheap domestic beer. I often choose to drink Schaefer, PBR, Schlitz, and others of their ilk, but this honest beer commercial from Random at Best is still pretty damn funny and accurate. I could go on and on about how much I enjoy the taste of Genesee Cream Ale (and I really do) but what it mostly comes down to is this: it costs $7 for a 12 pack and it gets me drunk. And now I’ve gone and made myself thirsty. Anyone want to grab a beer? Maybe something domestic?

  • Scott Hocking Documents Detroit’s Bad Graffiti [25 Photos]

    Scott Hocking, a photographer and artist from Detroit, has captured the amazing artwork of the unknown street Picasso’s around his city in his collection titled “Bad Graffiti.” Everyone pays attention to the Banksys of the world, but how often does someone champion the dude who paints crude genitalia on abandoned buildings? Or how about “free balls in your mouth” written in giant cursive letters? Not even Magritte is so brilliant! Looking through these, I have a newfound appreciation for whoever draws the horrific vaginas all over the benches in Jersey City’s Exchange Place. Also check out the rest of the collection and other work from Scott Hocking.

  • So NBA All-Star Jerseys Are Just T-Shirts Now

    The NBA All-Star jerseys have leaked and they are painful to look at. For better or worse the All-star game has become a full blown calamity. Players don’t play defense, the dunk contest stinks and now this. These terrible jerseys are everything that embodies a game players take for granted. The jerseys themselves aren’t necessarily ugly, but they’re far from nice and far from even looking like a basketball jersey. They’re stuck in a limbo of awfulness combined with a lazy design scheme. Shame on you NBA. Both jerseys feature a large Fleur de lis on the chest and uniform numbers on the left sleeve similar to the terrible jerseys worn on Christmas day. EXCLUSIVE! NBA All-Star jersey leaked on French site. I confirm it's the real deal –> http://t.co/ihX7lPzEQu pic.twitter.com/7tuvUvp3E4 — Paul Lukas (@UniWatch) January 16, 2014 Los "pijamas" del All Star ya han salido a la luz #allstar #nba pic.twitter.com/rXSHaxX1xa — FUIKAOMAR (@FUIKAOMAR) January 16, 2014

  • Frozen Lighthouses on Lake Michigan [9 Photos]

    Winter is here and we are all cold and miserable. Despite this, there are lunatics out there, like photographer Thomas Zakowski, who dare to venture outdoors and even manage to make these bleak times appear beautiful. Zakowski travels around Lake Michigan during the calm after a winter storm and captures these striking images of amazing ice formations on frozen lighthouses. I don’t know what brand of magic he employs, but for a brief moment his photographs warmed the cockles of my heart  (maybe even below the cockles, in the sub-cockle area) and made me forget that i was wearing multiple layers of clothing and shivering INSIDE my apartment. You almost had me, Zakowski. See more of his work at 500px.
