If you’ve ever had an office job or worked at a desk for an extended period of time you’re probably already aware of the importance of a good desk chair. The quality of the chair you sit on for most of the day can directly influence your enjoyment and level of comfort on the job, but even once you have the right chair there are certain (seemingly small) ways of sitting which can affect your comfort and health.

Today’s infographic comes from The Huffington Post and gives a few different tips for sitting at your desk that may improve the quality of your job. Propping the monitor up so that it’s eye-level, for instance, reduces strain in the neck muscles that would normally be caused from continually needing to look up and down at a monitor that isn’t eye-level.

For more tips on sitting more comfortably at your desk refer to the infographic below. [Via]

Behind the Facebook Like Button [infographic]

Ever since Facebook installed the ‘like’ feature, seeming like you care about what your friends say and think has never been so easy. Just kidding. The Like button was an ingenious idea to quickly and easily get people involved with interesting posts and organizations.

You can attest to this: Like us on Facebook here! Wasn’t that easy? Now you’ll end up with magnificent infographics floating in your news stream every-now-and-then.

Moving away from our self-promotion: Facebook has actually created and entire new way of marketing to the masses. The only problem is, unlike google, Facebook doesn’t get to keep the money from it. Facebook pages are free to create. Even though promoting your company’s Facebook post to a ton of people can get pricy, a free status update is always an option.

As Facebook struggles with profitability issues, the user base only continues to grow. One in Five websites have a ‘like’ button embedded in their site. We are no exception – we have up to 6 different like buttons on a page at once. Facebook is here to stay, only time will tell how big of an influence it will have on the internet.

Deaths by Quentin Tarantino [infographic]

Damn. That guys likes to kill off characters. The ever increasing death rate of Tarantino movies is an interesting aspect of his film making. I’ve heard rumors of a Kill Bill 3. I bet an entire army falls on the ever-so-present samurai sword.

Because Tarantino seems to be the only one capable of creating his signature movie picture – the only person to top is himself. Inglorious Bastards was one of Quentin’s largest undertaking of death, but it wasn’t his first step into gore. From Reservoir Dogs to Django, his blood red motif has splattered million of movie screens. He is known for many signature trademarks in his films – the car trunk scene, a ridiculously long un-edited scene, an addiction to briefcases and one scene that will make you cringe and close your eyes.

In his latest film, Django Unchained, The Dog Scene is one of the most heart-wrenching, nasty ones in motion picture history. But that is what Mr. Tarantino is famous for. Death Proof, Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bill’s: they all go over the top with the gore and that’s why its ok. If it was too real it wouldn’t be bearable, but the overblown bloodshed has the slightest tinge of humor. [Via]

Kissing [infographic]

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone is enjoying their day whether it be with their significant other, or with themselves. It’s funny because I never used to enjoy Valentine’s Day when I was in a relationship; I seem to enjoy it much more when I’m single. This obviously means that I love myself more than anyone else. But hey, at least I can find good in the holiday. The thing that will be going on in abundance today is kissing, and hand holding, but mostly the kissing.

Today’s infographic gives some facts on the history and mechanics of kissing. It’s kind of funny to think that there is so much information surrounding an activity that is so natural to most of us. With that being said, be sure to pucker up tomorrow! [via]

A World Without Magnets [Infographic]

When mention of magnets emerge, it’s hard for me not to think of the infamous ICP track ‘Miracles’ “F-ing magnets, how do they work?” There’s just so much magic up in this bitch.

Obviously magnets are not purely here to confound us, but in all seriousness, magnetization is the reason why many of our modern-day conveniences exist. That’s right, no vacuums, dryers, blenders, washers or mixers. All of these items are produced from a magnet propelled electric motor. Other items that use electric motors like MRI machines, microphones and batteries would be extinct and defunct.

Even going beyond that, there wouldn’t be any electricity to harness! All of our power plants, regardless of variety use magnets. Even going back into the pre-industrial age, there wouldn’t have been compasses for early explorers! But when thinking about that, compasses work by reading the magnetization fields surrounding Earth. So in this hypothetical world of sans-magnetization, Earth would not be safely floating through space right now. You see, the interior heat of the Earth creates a magnetic field around Earth (not unlike a battery). This Magnetosphere creates a protective bubble around Earth and deflects most of the charged particles from the Sun around our planet! So give it up for Magnetism!
