I used to be obsessed with “What Not to Wear,” a TLC show whose hosts accost unsuspecting and poorly dressed citizens and force them to dress better. Sure, the concept is a little hokey, but the advice was great (and you’d better believe I laughed at the fashion offenders as I sheepishly removed similar items from my closet). As much as appearance shouldn’t matter the most, sometimes it does. Employers won’t give you the chance to wow them with your astonishing intellect and knowledge of French regional wines if you look like a freshman in college or a hobo.
Today’s infographic is basically “What Not to Wear” without the sassy hosts. Whether you are prepping for an interview, first day at work, or if you think your work wardrobe could use some TLC, here are some economical tips. [Via]Share This Infographic
The times, they are a changin’. As seen in my post about interracial marriage, attitudes about love are becoming more and more modern. And now, although gay marriage is definitely less of a norm than interracial marriage, attitudes are progressing in this modern era.
As seen in this infographic, attitudes have shifted dramatically in the past ten years. The majority attitude has shifted, in 2001 more people were in opposition to gay marriage and now in 2011 half to just barely more people are in favor of gay marriage. The shift alone is revolutionary!
Support varies by political party. As assumed, democrats were more supportive of gay marriage than republicans in 2001 and remain more supportive of gay marriage in 2011. Democrats and independents both increased support of gay marriage between these years, while republican support remained relatively the same.
Another interesting data point is the thoughts on gay couples raising children. While it isn’t a drastic change, a larger percent of the population thinks that it will benefit society than before, and most people don’t think it will make a difference. [Via]Share This Infographic
Happy Labor Day! Although the American economy is pretty grim right now, we can still say we are some of the hardest workers and today we celebrate that work ethic. The average work week in America is 34.3 with 7% of the workforce clocking 60 hours or more.

We’ve all had the urge to get a one way ticket to Venezuela to help man a submarine for thousands of miles. Now you will know a little more of what to expect. Drug cartels have gotten extremely sophisticated now. Some of the submarines are upwards of 2 million dollars taking months of constant construction by over a dozen workers.
One third of all cocaine in America is brought by submarine. Isn’t it scary that criminals can sneak into our borders with a sub? It could carry anything. We just gotta hope it sticks to cocaine I guess.
It would be cool to be on a submarine, one that wasn’t smuggling thousands of pounds of an illegal substance. I scuba dive and that’s great but diving extremely deep is reserved for capsules. I bet if there isn’t already an autonomous drug smuggling sub, there is some cartel leader who already has plans to make one. Not having to pay for a crew and supplies would saves hundreds of thousands of dollars. [Via]Share This Infographic
Every health magazine or website will tell you a glass of wine a day is ok. So a beer a day can’t be that bad can it? Many adult social events are based around beer and drinking in general. The ‘cool’ thing to do is grab a drink with your friends after work. So why not read this infographic and impress your friends with your extensive knowledge of beer?
Here in Austin, the Flying Saucer provides a large list of local and foreign brews on tap, and it’s quite the adventure. If you ever come by our part of town, you’ll definitely want to make a quick stop there.
It’s no surprise that Anheuser-Busch owns basically half of all the beers made. It’s still fun to browse around this massive web and look at all the beers. What’s your favorite beer? Let us know in the comments!Share This Infographic
