Even a simple evaluation would show we’re nothing without our phones. It’s frightening how much I rely on a fragile piece of plastic. This neatly compressed hunk of wires and circuits stands as our mecca of entertainment, the capitol of communication.
With it we are invincible. With it, comes power. Boredom is obliterated; we’re completely wired into the world. An unwanted conversation with a passerby can be easily deterred just by the click of a button and total concentration on the screen. But without our phone, we’re at a major disadvantage. We’re placed in a cold world, sans the direct access to our friends and our planner and mp3 player and tip calculator.
If you misplace your phone as often as you lose the remote, the infographic will be very helpful. After seeing a few numbers, I decided to keep an extra eye on my phone. The next time you’re at a bar with your friends, or trying on a new shirt at your favorite clothing store, remember that if you’re not careful there isn’t a one hundred percent chance you walk away with your phone. I don’t like those odds. [Via]Share This Infographic
Student loans are one of the biggest problems facing our country at the moment. Thousands of students attend university and even if they drop out, students still end up with mountains of debt. This debt can follow them throughout their life.
Today’s infographic says 85% of today’s college graduates will move back in with their parents after school. I know my parents would love seeing my face more around the house, although they would probably prefer I get a job after college. If only higher education didn’t cost as much.
Prices have been rising for colleges all over the country while performance has declined. One in three students will not learn any critical reasoning or thinking skills during their first two years of university. This statistic has me baffled. I learned quite a lot my first two years at college. I suppose some students don’t put forth the effort to learn. [Higher Education Bubble]Share This Infographic
I take my daily coffee rituals very seriously. And, compared to a few of my co-workers, I am only a moderate addict. We have convinced ourselves that we need (yes, need) coffee to wake us up in the morning, to make the tedious tasks a little more bearable, and to deliver us safely past the after-lunch lull. “Caffeinated” not only describes beverages, but it also fairly describes us after a rough day at work. I’m not judging you, coffee addict, I am bonding with you.
If any of these scenarios could be taken out of your super-secret diary, take a look at the infographic below for some fun facts about everyone’s favorite legal addiction. (And if you scoff in my general direction, preferring tea or diet coke, check out the infographic anyway for some fun dinner party trivia.) Did you know, for example, that coffee is one of the highest traded commodities, second only to oil? Or that coffee addiction was viewed as a vice in the 1700s? [via]Share This Infographic
The basketball world is seeing a bit of turbulence. I knew a lockout was going on, but had no idea what that really meant or how it affected fans and players. This infographic is great for the basketball geniuses and basketball novices (like myself). So much politics are involved in the whole negotiation process, it can get very confusing, but I think this infographic does a great job of guiding you through the process and what already happened.
For all of you who know the players, teams and coaches, this infographic gives a good insight to how players are dealing with all of this drama as well. All we want is for the lockout to be unlocked and for the games to begin again! [Designed by Direct TV affiliate US Direct]Share This Infographic
