I’m not sure if you caught my allusion to Heroes, but if you did it is in reference to last Friday’s post on Super Powers and their Heroes. Now moving on to why 2nd-hand iPhones may solve global warming.
As much as Steve Jobs would like his iPhone to cure our world’s fever, it isn’t going to. Re-selling electronics will help reduce our carbon-footprint, but not eliminate it.
Trading in electronics always sucks because you never seem to get a fair price. Here on Ebay’s new Instant Sale, you can instantly get a fair amount of money in your PayPal account by selling new, old or damaged electronics.
Fair is a loose word. I had a crack in my Ipod touch, sold it on Craigslist for $60. The amount I would have gotten on Ebay’s Instant Sale is only $20. The only reason this Instant Sale thing might take off is how convenient it is. Free shipping, free removal of personal data, and no PayPal or Ebay fees. It was a hassle to go through all of the bullshit Craigslist made me do to make a post. Then I had to communicate with a guy who couldn’t speak English and meet him really sketchily in a Barnes & Noble’s parking lot. Although, it did turn out well and I made 200% more money than I would have on Ebay.
Will I ever use Instant Sale? Probably not. Is it completely useless? No, it just depends on how lazy someone is. [Via]

Dough, tomato sauce, and some cheese is all you need to make one of the most popular dishes in the United States of America, if not the world. Contrary to popular belief, pizza was not invented by the Italians. In fact, pizza has been around since the Neolithic time period, a time when it was still considered a food of the poor people. This contrasts today where even the finest restaurants serve “classy” pizza– for example California Pizza Kitchen which is an upscale restaurant when compared to something like Pizza Hut. The Ancient Greeks even had an early version of the pizza; they used to put oils, herbs, and cheese on their bread.
Before I forget, like us on FACEBOOK! I have heard of some pretty odd and interesting toppings on pizza here in the states, but none as weird as the toppings under the “Global Toppings” section of today’s infographic. As you may already know, Japan has a large fishing community and is famous for its sushi. However, the use of sea creatures does end there; if you ever find yourself in Japan you should try some squid on your pizza. Some other sea creatures you may find on your pizza in other countries include shrimp in Australia and eels in China. Amsterdam takes two of America’s favorite foods and adds them together by using hot dogs as a type of topping. This infographic is definitely worth your time. After all, the pizza industry is a 30 billion dollar industry. [via]Share This Infographic
I wasn’t too much into the comic books when I was a kid. The Justice League was one of the only shows I watched with super heroes, that and Batman. What I like about super heroes is that they are always ready to go. They don’t need guns, they just start using their power and beat the crap out of anything in their way.
Did any of y’all ever watch Heroes? That show was too legit. The super powers of those people ranged from your average ability of flight to nuclear capabilities. After the writer’s strike a few years ago the quality of the show went way down hill. I think that it has stopped running now, but the first couple of season were amazing. If you haven’t seen Heroes yet, go out and buy it, or find some kids to pirate it for you. [Via]Share This Infographic
As many of you may know we have this great big burning ball of gas that we call the sun. However, how much do you really know about? Hopefully today’s infographic will clear up some of your questions. In an ever increasing effort to find a renewable source the sun is becoming more and more important. Although solar energy is not currently efficient enough for wide commercialized use, if China is any indication it soon could be. [via]Share This Infographic
In many a philosophy class I have studied good and evil, and whether either can exist without the other. Without the existence of evil how would we know what is truly good? Would we even know good when we saw or experienced it? Regardless of your stand, I think we can agree that the people on this list are at the very least not good. Today’s infographic content ranges from victims, to unsolved mysteries, to serial killers.
The Zodiac Killer remains the unsolved mystery on the list. I do not know how factual this movie is, but if you want to see a movie about the Zodiac Killer you should check out Zodiac. For those of you who do not know, the Zodiac Killer was a serial killer in the late 1960s and early 70s in Northern California. The Zodiac Killer claims to have killed 37 people, but according to law enforcement there are only a confirmed 7 murders. To date the killer remains free, however according to him, if the police break the cryptic messages he sent them they will have him.
The people mentioned in the list include: Elizabeth Short aka “Black Dahlia”, William Heirens, the Zodiac Killer, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, John Couey, Ray and Faye Copeland, William Hale, Charles Chi-Tat Ng, Karla Homolka, Mary Bell, Ted Bundy, and David Berkowitz. If you find today’s infographic interesting, I encourage you to do more research on each of these people. Like us on Facebook! [via]Share This Infographic
