Continuing with the theme of my post on Monday on the protests to the SOPA bill, click here if you haven’t seen it, today’s infographic actually explains the bill. One of the biggest problems of the bill is the wording, surprisingly it is vague and allows for misinterpretation. What a surprise, legislation that can misinterpreted. Ultimately the argument remains that the internet should remain free of government intervention, it seems almost 1984ish to think the government could censor the internet. Enjoy today’s infographic!

The Local Web [infographic]

I can barely remember my life without the Internet or a time when the yellow pages had a use. The World Wide Web has become a mirror image of real life as establishments and individuals take advantage of the endless online marketing opportunities and develop a presence online. Heck, it seems like every business has a Facebook page for you to “like,” every restaurant has a Yelp.com profile that allows word of mouth to go viral, and every activity has had at least one clever Groupon offer.

Today’s infographic emphasizes how a localized online presence affects a business’s growth, suggesting that utilizing social media, businesses are able to cultivate greater customer loyalty. [The Local Web]

Pick Your Poison [infographic]

Happy Tuesday! While Tuesday isn’t the most exciting day of the week, as it is just after Monday and very far away from Friday, hopefully today’s infographic will inspire you to take a mid week break for a little fun! Maybe hit up a happy hour, perhaps dollar beer night at Cain and Ables if you fall into the beer loving category or House Wine for you wine-o’s (both local Austin establishments).

This post gives an interesting insight to American adult alcohol preference. As someone who is around a lot of drinkers most of the time, I feel that I could have accurately predicted some of the information presented, which is not usually the case for my infographics. For example, I would have guessed that more females prefer wine and more males prefer beer. I also would have guessed that midwesterners prefer beer, and I can say that as a midwesterner. I am a bit surprised that liquor remains in third place in every category. Well infographers, pick your poison and bottoms up! [Via]

Wikipedia’s Blackout [infographic]

I doubt most of you don’t already know this, but last Wednesday Wikipedia shut down for the day along with reddit and others in protest of SOPA and PIPA. These two bills are supposed to stop the online pirating of music and movie. Unfortunately to do so would be a censorship of the internet and threatens several of our favorite sites, Megaupload being one of the first victims, having been shut down recently. It is scary to think that the government can come in and change the internet, what would Ron Swanson think?

If you are interested in learning more about these two bills you should Google it, unless they are no longer allowed to display the results. [via]

Funniest Deaths [infographic]

Death isn’t exactly an event most would consider funny (at least by contemporary western standards). Still, it happens literally all the time. The possibilities for death’s circumstances are dependent on an infinite amount of variables in every individual’s life. These variables collide in absurd, funny (albeit, darkly funny) ways more often than you would think.

In fact, as this infographic reveals, quite a few people have actually died laughing. The old expression has its root in history! This however, is probably the least ridiculous way to die listed below.

Among the top seven in the infographic are Death by Flaming Fart, Death by Sausage, and Death by Breasts. Some of them are far out, some obscene, some just silly, and some ironic.

My favorites are the particularly ironic ones, such as the inventor strangled by his own invention. That poetic irony has a way of cinching up a lifetime ever-so-perfectly. But that just might be the English major in me talking.

Anyway, I hope you are as amused by this collection of crazy circumstances as I was. (via)
