Nintendo MBA: Gaming Success [Infographic]

Looking at the state of the video game industry today, it’s hard to believe that it was ever in any sort of trouble. The norm these days is for several huge, big-selling blockbusters to come out every year (i.e. Assassin’s Creed III, Black Ops II, Halo 4, etc.), but it wasn’t always like that. Once upon a time (namely the mid-1980′s), the video game industry was in a sharp decline and things were looking pretty bleak. Not many new games were coming out and industry revenues dropped drastically from $3.2 billion in 1983 to just $100 million in 1985; it seemed like gaming was on its way out. Then lo and behold, a hero appeared in the form of a mustachioed Italian plumber (formerly carpenter) who had a penchant for stomping on turtles: Super Mario (and more importantly Nintendo) was born onto the scene and things haven’t been the same since.

Today’s infographic from MBAonline.com shows us Nintendo’s meteoric rise and how it has continued time and time again to hold its place at the top of Game Mountain. One may not think that Nintendo, with its mostly family-friendly games and devices, has a leg to stand on in the day and age of big-name shooters and sleek, sharp gameplay, but that assertion couldn’t be more wrong. The family-friendly model gives Nintendo an extremely broad, already-built-in fanbase that is hard to compete against. Combined with the fact that their handheld and Wii sales continuously top the charts, it’s not hard to see why Nintendo stands the test of time and continues to deliver.

The Cost of the 12 Days of Christmas [infographic]

You guys. This. Has. To. Be. The cutest infographic. EVER. Basically just as cute as emphasizing words with periods! And, let’s be real. I am all about the cute and holiday combination. I jam out to that stuff! The song that inspires this infographic used to be one of my favorites when I was a wee little one. I guess you could call me a romantic because I was incredibly fond of the idea of a true love giving me things. So, this infographic is both nostalgic (for me, at least) and clever.

But it really is pretty crazy how much our cost of living has increased here in the U.S. Sure part of the rise in cost has to do with inflation, but it’s also because we ask more from the world. I hope that we will be able to recognize the effects of our materialistic lifestyles on animals such as the geese and swans in this infographic! The holiday season is the perfect—and perhaps most impactful—time to be aware of our ecological impact.

Hope your day is a swell one! [via]

The Merry Merits of Milk [infographic]

No matter that I’ve drank milk my entire life, whenever I drink it, I always get a sense of childhood. I suppose my milk consumption has gone down in the last few years, but I still reminisce on the mmmmmmm so good cereal tainted milk. A cookie’s delicious taste goes up tenfold when soaked in milk. Milk in mac & cheese can make the meal. Milk with a little chocolate syrup is one of the world’s easiest and most delicious desserts.

Ever since the first ‘Got Milk?’ campaign hit the television, milk companies have banded together to get the word out about their product. Its incredibly healthy, especially for kids, and now with all organic milk the additive ridden drink is a thing of the past. The human race will always be in debt to cows- always supplying one of Earth’s nectars to billions across the globe. I’ll I can say for thanks is mooo.[Milk Mustache]

Cyber Monday in Perspective [infographic]

Another Cyber Monday has come and gone and with it our money. All this post-Thanksgiving shopping madness has made our nation out to be a bunch of penny pinching lunatics. Oh, I guess the international view of Americans has always been that… There is an upside to our citizens hemorrhaging of cash out of every orifice, economic stimulus.

Have you noticed? Everyone has started thinking our economy is on the up & up and believing that is the first step in actually improving the situation. Jobs are slowly being created, friends graduate from college and can make a living, stores like Radio Shack release the biggest sigh of relief: the future looks… brighter than now!

With many in our government not sure about our future economic stability and studies like this stating a global economic collapse before 2030 is possible – our nation’s economy is all but out of trouble. Don’t let that news get you down. The economy is a finicky thing and right now the future looks peachy. Let’s keep doing our part and shell away our money for useless gadgets and toys cause’ girls and boys – its actually helping.[Broadband Blue]

Cactus Spines [infographic]

There is no doubt that miniature cacti and succulents have grown in popularity this past year. They’re a hot topic on pinterest, and they even have their own section at Lowes. I myself have 5 miniature cacti in my room. It’s great because I only have to water them about once month, so there is no way they’ll die. Although I seem to have opposite luck with succulents,  those seem to always die on me…

While switching out one of my cacti into another pot, I got a few cacti spines stuck on the palm of my hand. Luckily, being from south Texas, I have had this experience with cacti before, so I knew the standard procedure of how to get the spines out. However, many other people might have not had the same experience  Behold today’s inforgraphic, listing popular ways to get out cacti spines. They are all quick and fool proof. Enjoy! [via]
