Oh zombies! You guys are so popular! How did you make an entire nation, no an entire world obsessed with your fictitious character? I Know why, and everyone knows why – we all really want the zombie apocalypse to happen. It isn’t a weird dream, everybody has fantasies of running through the streets mowing down the living dead, but let’s look at the real facts.

If there was a zombie apocalypse, the zombie infection would have had to be ridiculously contagious. Just getting infected from a bite wouldn’t be enough. The fact that the worlds strongest military power couldn’t kill a few brain-dead walkers would be an embarrassment. The infection would first have to start in the US military, not only that but the zombies would have to be smarter than the average television representation. The ability to drive vehicles or use weapons would be a must if we really wanted a world-wide zombie apocalypse. Soon the reality of a zombie outbreak doesn’t sound that much fun.

All speculation aside, zombies will take over the earth. We just need to wait until that day and always keep the zombie apocalypse emergency kit somewhere close. Check out below to see some of the essentials. [Via]

Student Debt in America [infographic]

American 20 something year olds are in a weird time right now. With tuition costs rising, and an extremely competitive job market, young people are left with a decision. Invest in a college degree and MAYBE get a job when after graduation? Or don’t invest in a college degree and find a job? Is a college degree even worth all the hype anymore?

Because of rising tuition costs, student debt is at an all time high. I know people who are 20,000 in debt and it’s only their junior year of college. That’s the cost of a small car or a plot of land! With the job market becoming so competitive, it’s easy to see why so many high school graduates would see that a college degree isn’t worth the investment.

Today’s infographic takes a look at student debt in America. It’s discouraging to see how much debt recent graduates rake up when there is no promise of a job after graduation. Although I was blessed with a college fund a scholarships, I still worry about my generation who has to deal with the rising costs of education. Hopefully policy makers will find rising tuition a pressing topic and will work towards lowing tuition so young people will find an easier life after graduation. [via]

The Cost of Living [Infographic]

Everyday you gotta spend a little dough. Bus fare, gas, food, movie tickets, bills, etc. These are the costs of living. Unsuprisingly this ‘standard’ living varies greatly throughout the world. I was just reading the other day that Americans pay as much as FOUR TIMES AS MUCH for internet/cable/phone bundles as French citizens! Obviously, the reasons for these differences have much to do with the demand/power the company’s product has on it’s consumer.

Mercer’s 2012 Cost of Living Survey reveals an interesting variety of small costs such as these around the world. This survey compares the costs of over 200 items in 214 different cities. Surveys such as these are meant to help multinational companies and governments determine the differences in compensation needed to determine the average cost of their items. The following infographic shows some examples of common items I mentioned before, and their variable prices in cities around the world. Of the items shown, most surprising to me was that New York had one of the LOWEST movie ticket prices at $13.25 a pop! Yikes, I’m never gonna see a movie in Japan…

If you wish to take part in the survey, or want to look at more items click here to check out the Mercer Cost of Living Survey.

The Joy of Clicking [infographic]

I constantly find myself browsing online shops out of boredom. In my downtime I peruse the pages of J.Crew, Madewell, Piperlime and countless others. What better way to fill your day off than dreaming up outfits and lusting after items that are far beyond your budget?

Lucky for online shops, there are some customers that are quick to purchase. According to today’s infographic, 1/3 of internet users are shopping online. Shoppers are more frequently heading to online shops for convenience and to accomdiate their busy schedules. When you need a new dress and can’t find time to dart to the store, with a few clicks and a credit card number you can have it delivered to your doorstep! And often with free shipping!

Today’s infographic is packed full of advice for the online retailer. How do you get that large number of internet savvy consumers to stop over on your site for a quick buy? Maintain an easy to navigate site. Online shopping is about convenience and very few shoppers will sift through complicated site when there are plenty of other options. Offer discounted shipping or frequent shipping deals. One of the turn-offs of online shopping is the shipping price, so offset that cost every once and a while to keep your customers happy. Send orders promptly and package them attractively. In giving up the swing of a shopping bag and instant gratification of an in-person purchase, consumers are looking for a reward when they open the mailbox. Get their orders shipped quickly and present them well. It will keep them getting back online. [Via]

2012 has already been a huge year for action movies. Competition for the title of “best big-budget action film” is already pretty stiff with titles like Prometheus, The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises already on the board, but on October 23rd everyone’s favorite M16 agent will once again throw his hat into the ring.

Today’s infographic from FirstShowing.net celebrates 007′s upcoming 50th anniversary with a bang. Daniel Craig is set to make his 3rd on-screen appearance as James Bond in Skyfall on October 23rd, which coincides with the 1962 release of Dr. No and marks the 50th anniversary of the Bond Franchise.

Making an average of $663 million per movie, Daniel Craig is already a very successful Bond; he hasn’t come close to Sean Connery yet, though. Adjusted for inflation, Connery’s Bond films pulled in an average of $729 million per movie.

For more information on everything Bond, from the girls to the gadgets and from the villains to the vehicles, refer to the infographic below. [Via]
