Significant others can be expensive. According to today’s infographic, each partner will spend almost $9000 on each other over a year. Stay single for a few years and you could buy a brad new car. If the couple vowed to never go out to eat, never call each other, live together and spend absolutely nothing on entertainment, they could rake in $18000 with the downside of a somewhat boring year.
Imagine the badass vacation you could take for 18000 bucks. What about flying to Vegas and putting it all on red. How horrible it’d feel to go a year without buying anything and loose all of your savings, but the payoff could be huge. You couples out there should seriously consider this option.

Startup companies can be lots of fun, or a lot of pain. Making it big as one of the first employees of a rapidly growing company obviously has its benefits, but there’s never any guarantees when working in a small, newer company. This infographic highlights some of the reasons these companies go down the gutter. I advise anyone thinking about applying to a startup to read this so you can prepare some useful questions in an interview.
I think startups are a great idea for lots of reasons. You get to do what you are truly interested in. You have control over the company’s destiny and how much time and effort is put into its growth. Oftentimes the founders interact with every employee on a regular basis, and this creates a strong sense of family in the workplace. With the expansion of technology and advancement of lifestyle, people have more and more specific needs and markets expand into areas never developed before. Startups are a great way to attack these new areas of lifestyle.
Some of us prefer job security with a long lasting company we trust, so to each his own. [Via]Share This Infographic
Service Announcement: in the face of an imminent Zombie Apocalypse, we strongly advise you to read the infographic below. This is not a test…. (Cue radio static, sinister organ music, and occasional shrieks.)
Worldwide Medical Insurance has put together this entertaining infographic for any zombie fans out there (or any with Kinemortophobia, fear of the undead), just in time for Halloween. You can never be too prepared, after all. First and foremost, know your enemy, whether the hemorrhaging zombie mob is made up of undead cheerleaders, jocks, clowns or nurses. Second, know your body and the very unfortunate results of a zombie bite. Lastly, know your resources and put together the kit every doomed horror-move heroine wishes she had.

Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holidays. This week always excites me, getting ready to dress up in a costume and prance around as a cat, french girl or ballerina. Another huge perk of Halloween is Halloween candy!
It seems the candy industry must love halloween as much or more than I do. Candy sales boom the week surrounding Halloween. The top five annual candy sales days are all in October! And all at the end of October, contributing to the $1.9 billion dollar annual Halloween candy sales.
While I am a huge fan of the top selling candy, the candy corn, I can’t say I am too fond of any of the others on the top Halloween candy list. Chocolate just isn’t my thing, and therefore the hunt for my favorites while trick or treating will be more difficult, but definitely worth it! What Halloween candy do you like most?

Facebook, Facebook, Facebook! If they’re not on it they’re talking about it, everyone knows what Facebook is and a lot of us have accounts. For those you who are tired of hearing about how great it is, today’s infographic is for you. Entitled Facebook Wall of Shame this infographic details all the failures the company has experienced. Some of these you may have heard of or even used while others, came and went so quick they’ll probably come as a surprise.
As many Facebook users know privacy has been an issue from the very beginning. According to today’s infographic in a conversation between Mark Zuckerberg and a Harvard friend, Zuckerberg offered him any information about anyone at the school. He claimed to have had 4,000 e-mails, pictures, adresses, and SNS saying “people just submitted it…they trust me.” Whether this is true or not I cannot say, but if it is, I’d say it’s disconcerting. Whether you want it to or not Facebook also remembers everything you do thanks to the timeline feature.
To completely change the topic, as I finish writing this the Rangers have just tied the World Series at two a piece. Derek Holland pitched an amazing game, a shut out in fact, allowing only two hits and two walks. Can’t forget Mike Napoli’s 3-run homer in the 6th inning off of Boggs’ first pitch of the game. A nice win for the Rangers after a horrible 16-7 loss in game 3. Enjoy today’s infographic and have a Happy Halloween! [via]Share This Infographic
