It turns out people like to lie and online dating profiles are no exception. On average women claim to be 8.5 pounds lighter and have profile pictures about 1.5 years old. Men on average claim to be 2 pounds lighter and use profile pictures taken about 6 months ago. People’s need to find a significant other has turned out to quite profitable for online dating sites.

Even though people lie on their profile pages the amount of people using or visiting online dating sites has doubled in the past five years. Today’s infographic claims couples who meet via an online dating site are much quicker to get to the alter, dating an average of 18.5 months before getting married.

Your Brain on Prescription Drugs [infographic]

Prescription drugs are, in my opinion, one of contemporary America’s most pervasive evils. I hear people say things like “You know, there’s a pill for everything!” and my brain hurts. This is all-to-common of a statement.

This quick-fix attitude is EXTREMELY detrimental, and has been fostered passionately by the pharmaceutical industry as well as the advertisers that work with them.

These are legal substances that poison you. They come in many varieties. We’ve all seen the tweaked-out kid on adderall trying in vain to save their grade on test day, blindly led by the notion that such a pill had the power to make them successful at school.

Adderall is only the tip of the iceberg. As this infographic illustrates, the number of prescription drug overdose deaths has increased drastically in the past few years.

Please, if you are considering getting a prescription or taking any prescription drugs, familiarize yourself with this insidious killer. (via)

TSA: Grope & Pillage [infographic]

The Transportation Security Administration has been around for the last decade and I’ve never read a positive news article about them. It isn’t that I’m avoiding these articles, its that there just aren’t any. Try it yourself: go to Google News and search for TSA. Some of the most recent articles are titled ‘TSA body scanners’ apparent flaw’ and ‘TSA pats down toddler in wheelchair’. Just a few weeks ago the new full body scanners were proved to be practically useless. This isn’t the first time the TSA has missed the boat either…

Back in 2009 the TSA spent $36 million on bomb-detecting puffer machines. The machines proved useless because humidity and dust would make them malfunction. The few machines deployed ‘puffed’ air at passengers for months until they were finally retired to sit in a warehouse.

According to this infographic, seven out of ten weapons get by screeners. After ten years and 60 billion dollars the Transportation Security Administration can only stop 30% of potential threats? This is a disgrace. This organization has failed at its goal and has taken the airline companies down with it. The TSA needs to change their ways to be less intrusive. Imagine if the money thrown away on air-puff bomb detectors and nude body scanners was put toward streamlining the security process, creating a fun, safe and efficient way to board the plane. [Via]

How to Pull Off The Perfect Marriage Proposal

I thought I would present you all with an infographic on a subject I am well versed in. Just kidding, I am a young, unmarried man who’s never even thought about proposal. Regardless, this infographic will prepare me for my future years should a proposal situation arise. I think the hardest part will be keeping my awesome proposal plan a secret when the time comes. After all, fifty percent of men say it’s the biggest proposal bust.

The actual information in the infographic was not the main reason this caught my attention. The topic in particular has been a trend I’ve noticed on the internet. When using StumbleUpon, it seems like every day without fail I come across another video of someone’s proposal. It’s almost as if there is a competition for the most amazing proposal viral video. I have to say some of them are really cool, but they fact that they all go viral means I can’t steal their ideas. What’s your favorite proposal video? Here’s mine (Warning: Contains mild violence) [Via]
