These days, I have many friends who are constantly wondering, Who am I going to marry? When will I meet someone special? I am constantly telling them to go with the flow and not worry about it, but giving advice is a lot easier than taking it. Feeling worried and anxious about finding someone to love is very normal, but seeing statistics like these make show that it is better to wait, take your time to figure out if the relationship is right and settle down with the right person.
Statistics show that 1/3 of marriages end in ten years, and over half of adults over 18 are married. That alone makes marriage seem scary! On top of that, “getting intimate” only two to three times a month definitely seems like a nightmare. THis infographic also sights gaining weight, which is every females worst nightmare. Marriage is presented in a very unglamorous light, and making single life look like a cake walk.
While being in love and living happily ever after is the goal, this infographic reminds us that it is best to be sure. Waiting will help you know that you are with the right person and keep you from a dwindling sex life, weight gain and inevitable divorce. Dating for four years seems like a while (A Fell), but as a 21 year old I am in no rush to tie any kind of knot. So all of you singles, perk up, get yourself out there and buy an ipad or 80.

Usually, the term “space exploration” or the idea of people venturing into space has been associated with innovation, education, and groundbreaking new discoveries.
While all of this is absolutely dandy, no one seems to ponder what happens too all the junk left in space from these glorious missions.
Currently, figures for this thick ribbon of “space waste” pale in comparison to the horrific masses of garbage here on Earth. It’s safe to suppose we are all very aware of that issue by now. Most of us have heard of what is now being called The Great Pacific Garbage Patch… yet no one has yet heard of Earth’s Trashy New Belt.
Not only is this another glaring example of humankind’s pension to destroy all things beautiful, but it is a relevant and very dangerous problem. Lest we forget, in space, garbage doesn’t just sit there—it hurtles around the globe at extreme speeds.
The more human-made objects whizzing around in this belt, the more likely deadly collisions become. Current as well as future missions to space will doubtlessly be affected by this lethal band of hyper-fast trash. [via]Share This Infographic
No matter how easy to avoid it’s said to be, college students are still finding ways to contract STD’s. I know that life happens to even the best of us, but according to the alarming statistics in the infographic below, “life” is happening to a lot more students than I thought.
Trojan Brand Condoms studied 141 major colleges and compiled a report card rating the schools from best to worst in sexual health. This recent study also showed that 1 out of every 4 students have an STD.
25% of students having an STD sounded outlandish to me at first. I don’t think I can even name 1 of my friends who have an STD. But I also figured that not everyone would share their personal health information so freely, especially with something of that magnitude. The infographic also gives four tips to improve your sexual health, one of which was “use protection”. Shocker.
I personally think the numbers are a bit off the mark, but STD’s on college campuses are still a major concern of mine. And there were some surprise schools listed in the top half of the report card. What do you think? Gripe, complain, air your grievances! [Via]Share This Infographic
So we have all seen the picture of our favorite police officer nonchalantly causing some of the most excruciating discomfort to some immobile students. The media went crazy over this. The police said that the students had surrounded the officers and there was no escape so they pepper sprayed their way out.
Now I have seen the video and it is true, students did surrond the officers with their arms linked. Whether or not this was threatening enough for use of force is another story. The officers did warn the students many times they would be pepper sprayed if they didn’t move. The students didn’t move. Well surprise, surprise when they were pepper sprayed.
Pepper spray is horrible. The police should have grabbed the students and arrested them. Between batons and tasers the crowd never would of even thought of overrunning the officers. In the end the officers were wrong to use a classified chemical weapon against civilians and are being scrutinized by the nation for it. [Via]Share This Infographic
