The Master Cheat Sheet for the USPS [infographic]

On account of the never ending downfall of the United State Postal Service, I thought the least I could do is some promo for their latest infographic. Shipping can be a confusing thing and today’s graphic lays out the details in plain sight. That said, I always dread going to the post office, don’t you? The unavoidable long line, followed by having to wait in another long line and a few days later when you think everything went ok, you find out USPS ‘lost’ your package.

I don’t want to be pointing fingers here, but speaking of lost packages, my neighbors and I would sometimes wonder why our shoes and watches would always be lost in the mail. The most sketchy incident was when my shoes were reported ‘delivered’ at my house. I got pretty excited, but then I remembered USPS can’t deliver to my house. I used to live outside of the city and all packages had to be retrieved at the post office. On returning home I found that my shoes had not been delivered so I gave the post office a ring. They said that my shoes were not with them and that my mail man would figure it out the next day. After hearing nothing for a week (I think ignoring customers is an official tactic of the USPS) I called again. I was told a temporary mail man was working the days my shoes went missing, and he reported that he delivered it to me, which again is impossible.

After some choice words were tossed around I’m finally directed to fill out a claim. They tell me I cannot file claims at the post office any more, it is all online. Whatever, I go online. The claim form I need to fill out only gives me error messages… Thanks for stealing my shoes USPS, there’s a reason you’re not doing well. [Via]

How Soda Impacts Your Body [infographic]

Who hasn’t heard of the deliciously fizzy drink called soda? Depending on what part of the country you’re in, soda can have different names, (pop, fizzy drink, coke, soda pop, soft drink) but no matter what, soda always has that characteristic fizzy taste. Being a health nut, I’m not a fan of soda. I could live without the extra calories, and the few times that I do drink soda, I always seem to end up with embarrassing case of hiccups.

In recent years, medical experts have voiced their opinions about soda. They claim that drinking it in excess can lead to a number of health problems, specifically obesity. Sorry folks, but today’s infographic highlights the dangers surrounding soda, and how it directly impacts the various parts of the body. Hopefully today’s frightening information will help you think twice about ordering your favorite fizzy drink, and opt for water instead. [via]

London vs. Paris [infographic]

England and France: these two countries have had their fair share of differences in the past. In today’s infographic their rivalry continues, as London and Paris are pitted against each other once again. Keep in mind, there is some obvious bias towards London in this particular graphic, but it still has some great information about France!

Both cities are massive art and culture hubs. According to the infographic, there are 300 paintings by JMW Turner that are kept in London’s Tate Britain; and in Paris, the Mona Lisa receives 6 million visitors every year. There is also no escaping the growing appreciation for food and drink in both cities. The French definitely know how to prepare a good meal, but apparently England isn’t far behind with its dabbles in the culinary world. Did you know that there are at least 30 microbreweries in London? And Paris has the Musee du Vin Paris, a museum dedicated entirely to wine.

For me, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris holds a fair share of romanticism–both historical and sentimental. As Hemmingway says, “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” And when it comes to London, there is no denying the allure of an English accent–after all, we’re only human. Check out today’s infographic and take a closer look at some lesser known facts about two legendary cities. [HouseTrip London Team ]

How I Flirt: A Flowchart [infographic]

August 20, 2013 |  by  |  Funny, Lifestyle  |  3 Comments

I have a super simple one for y’all because I think it’s hilarious. It perfectly illustrates my inability to get a date. I only look at guys when there is no possible way that they are looking at me. Then, the moment they feel my eyes on them, I quickly look away and pretend to be digging for Chapstick in my purse. In some cases I even take it one step further: I run.

My track record is long term relationships. I am only recently single, and I feel like a total nerd in the dating world. I missed out on that time in your early twenties when as a single lady you learn how to mingle, go out on dates, and, well, look at attractive men in the eye without giggling. I also never fully realized just how exhausting it is to actively pursue a suitor. My friends had whined about it from time to time, but all I heard was whining–because I was in love! But they weren’t kidding! Who actually has time to fall in love?  And what’s more, who has an ego large enough to withstand the constant rejection? Or to be the one doing the rejecting?

It’s rough out there. That’s why I have decided to stay indoors, where it’s safe.  Where books can’t tell me that they just want to be friends or that they’re moving to Chile, where movies have happy endings, and where any day now, Atticus Finch will climb out of my tattered copy of To Kill a Mockingbird (in the form of Gregory Peck circa 1962) and take me on a real date. [via]
