Far from crude, this infographic has a lot of information that could let you get a picture of your health.

This is no April fools joke. Sh** just got serious.

Too refined to talk about poop? Well, you might not want to let the subject be completely ignored… Your poop can tell you if there is something seriously wrong with you.

The author asserts the three S’s that could save your life : size, shape, smell and shade. If you ever turn around after relieving yourself too see any of these 4 S’s strikingly unusual, you might want to see a doctor.

No, I’m not advocating that you carefully inspect your excrement regularly. Just that you keep an eye out for oddities.

These can be indicators of serious problems. Don’t let them go unnoticed. (via)

The Evolution of Makeup [infographic]

I would consider myself a makeup junkie. I have so many lipsticks, eyeshadows and eyeliners and I don’t even use half of it! But when I do use makeup, I like to pair it with my outfits to express my personality and how I’m feeling for the day. Whether it be electric blue eyeliner winged out at the tip, or a dark berry lip, I always have fun experimenting with different types of makeup.

Looks like women as far back as 4000BC had the same type of outlook on beauty and expression when it came to beauty. Ancient Egyptian women kohl to blacken their upper and lower lids, and in the 1600’s, women unknowingly powered their faces arsenic powder to matte those pesky oily areas on their face.  While today’s info graphic stops at 2002, it is interesting to see how makeup was first utilized. Women went through amazing lengths to try and accentuate their conceptions of beauty.

After today’s infographic, I hope all you men and women appreciate the lengths women go for beauty and self expression. As you can see, it is an art form that has taken generations to take form.  [via]

Everything You’ll Ever Need To Know About Girl Scout Cookies [infographic]

Fifty Million boxes of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies are sold every year. To me… Maybe not just me, but I try to eat as many as possible. By selling over 700 million dollars worth of cookies last year, the Girl Scouts are one serious booming business.

Some Girl Scout use the money from selling cookies for long trips to locations thousands of miles away. In 2008, a girl in Michigan raised $14,000 for her troop to go on a 10 day tour of europe! That’s some real cash. The Girl Scouts have always had business in mind. In the 1930′s the girls sold home-baked goods and started commercializing in the 50′s. Over 10 different kinds of cookies have been discontinued with only two bakery companies in the United States Licensed to bake Girl Scout Cookies.

Some argue these cookies are fattening America’s youth. The Girl Scouts encourage eating the cookies in moderation along with regular exercise. I think they are right on this one. [Via]

A History of Western Typefaces [infographic]

We all love to poke fun at people for using Comic Sans in inappropriate places. But there is even more complexity to the usage and properness of various fonts. Did you know some guy in the 18th century claimed that a certain font would blind readers? I guess some people don’t mess around with typeface. In today’s world, font is very important in establishing an identity or brand, as is seen by the distinct fonts in Facebook and Google. Saving the environment even influences people’s font choice. The University of Wisconsin changed their standard font to save ink on prints.

Totally random story that I just thought of- A couple of weeks ago I finished a large group report of 30+ pages with words, figures, equations, etc. After submitting it, I decided to change the font to Webdings; it was the best laugh I’ve had in a very long time. Maybe it was the release of stress from finishing the report.

Anyhow, hope all the history buffs out there enjoy this infographic, there are some interesting little bits of info. There are definitely some potential Jeopardy questions in there. [Via]

Kings Of Fast Food [infographic]

Fast food is prevalent in many Americans everyday life. As fortunate or unfortunate that may be, it’s just the way it is. The infographic below weighs in on three heavyweights of the fast food industry, comparing their draw to the children demographic, as well as how much they spend yearly to get this market.

The infographic is based on a study conducted in Canada, but I think it’s safe to say these numbers are close to, if not spot on with the numbers in America. The golden arches will continue to be a staple in American culture, simply because of how much they spend on advertising. McDonalds put in nearly 1 billion dollars, making those commercials we loved so much as children. Parents who happen to be more attracted to health than what their kids want tend to make the trip to Subway, while Burger King falls into an area grayer than its meat patties.

Look over the infographic and get a better understanding of the tactics these fast food heavyweights use to lure us in. [Via]
