How High Heels Hurt Your Body [infographic]

I remember once in high school, when I was in health class, the teacher mentioned something about high heels eventually causing back pain. He made some joke about how it was great to watch a girl strut down the hall in them but they were terrible for her feet, legs and back. It wouldn’t have been such a memorable conversation if I wasn’t the only female, who just happened to be wearing high heels that day.

I must admit that I’m guilty of several things this infographic describes. I’ve owned several pairs of heels taller than 3 inches, prefer a pointed toe, and wear them until my feet are in pain. I’ve always known that high heels caused some of these problems, but I decided to ignore it and wear them anyway. I might have to rethink that.

I never put much thought into high heels past how great they make my legs look when I’m wearing them. There is just something to be said about putting on a nice pair of heels. Let’s be honest though – they can hurt like a bitch. If I could find some great-looking but comfy high heels, I’d be all over them. Until then, I think I’ll just steer clear of heels for a while and give my flats another try. I’m not ready to experience any of these specific pains yet. [via]

The War On Women’s Bodies [infographic]

These statistics are not only heartbreaking but alarming. The big question that comes to mind is – are the fashion industry and media to blame? First, you have to ask why they choose to portray such an unrealistic spectrum of what women look like. The simple answer is that it’s just good business. So that’s it, the problem is capitalism! It’s what we want to see and that’s why they’re selling it. What that really means though is that we’re the vein ones, not them.

So I guess we might as well chalk it up to human nature and call it a day. The problem is that doesn’t explain how we’ve reached this point, where there’s is a glaring problem that’s only being exacerbated. It’s not exactly clear what the true root of this issue is, but a good clue lies in the fact of how disproportionately this issue is effecting women over men. There is something in the way that social norms have developed to separate what is the quintessential woman versus man that is allowing for this to happen.

It is undeniable however that the images we see in movies and magazines are only worsening this condition. If we want things to get better then that certainly wouldn’t be a bad place to start.

Which Disney Park Is The Happiest? [Infographic]

Good old Disney — this tried and true amusement park has lasted for so many years and has spread so far and wide that there are now 5 different parks across the world in America, Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong, and an additional one currently being built in Shanghai. This infographic looks at each one of these locations in order to compare and contrast each in terms of size, capacity, number of employees, attractions, events, pricing, and much more.

So which park is the happiest? Well, first off, that’s a kind of a silly question because this infographic isn’t about the well-being of the fore-mentioned parks but more about the various aspects of each park. For me, it seems that Disney World in Florida is a clear winner due to the fact that it is the only park with Tarzan available 24/7 for meet and greet. In all seriousness though, Disney World has a leg up on the other parks with it’s size alone. It has more acres within its walls than all of the other parks combined! One can only imagine how big a Disney Galaxy might be…

All in all, this is a fun look at all of the ‘Magical Kingdoms’ around the world.

Do You Listen to Music While Studying? [infographic]

February 23, 2014 |  by  |  Lifestyle, Music  |  No Comments

Music motivates. Music can be your best friend after a break up and it can be your worst enemy while you try to recover. It can put you to sleep and get you up and pumped for whatever is going on. Music can inspire. It can be a foundation for a relationship. Music can be so many things and can mean so many things to so many people — especially when you have to get stuff done.

Studying is tough. Keeping up with course material as an adult with a job is even harder. Finding time to be passionate about your studies can be hard. College costs a boat-load and we all want our bang for our buck. So, how do we stay motivated when we are tired and don’t feel like reading tiny script for 60 pages?

CRANK SOME TUNES!

For me, some variation of trance music does the trick. Something with good bass and a steady upbeat rhythm keeps me motivated and working quickly. For some, it can be rap or rock music. Personally, those have always been more of a work-out type of music but the studies show otherwise. I don’t know why y’all do it, but keep with it.

Music is so closely tied to our own specific culture. So much so, that it is important to pay attention to the music others listen to, and it’s also important to think about yours. Your music can be a part of your identity. Jam on, friends. [Via]

The Numbers Behind Pornography [infographic]

Hi, Internet. Or rather, greetings, filthy facet for flesh flashing fetishes. And I say that because 43% of the time, you’re being used to show boobies to booby deprived people.

If you’re under 18, you will most likely type the words “sex” and “porn” into your search bar. Just remember, if you’re on your parents’ computer, make sure you enable “private browsing”. Also, when you finish your 15 minute session of damning sin, to lash yourself 15 times in order to achieve proper redemption, and then go kiss your mother. I know, I know. It’ll be weird to kiss her after what you’ve done. But do it anyway. It’ll make you feel better. On the plus side, whatever site you may visit, there’s only a 3% chance that you’ll be asked to verify that you’re of age. So, if you happen to find a site that doesn’t ask, then at least you don’t have to live with the guilt of lying on top of the guilt of viewing other people engage in the ever-so private act of slippin’ and slidin’ over each other.

And if you’re from Utah, you’re probably not reading this, because you’re doing porn things. And if you’re in San Fernando Valley, you’re definitely not reading this, because you’re having sex for money. But it’s not prostitution… Right? That’s silly. It’s sex for money, but it’s not prostitution. That’s like the 30 year-old lady, who looks to be nearing 60, that sits outside of the local gas station smoking cigs all day coughing these words at you: “I’m not a smoker. As long as those security cameras are watching, I’m good to go.” [via]
