Bear wrestling is illegal in Oklahoma. Did you know that? So is not having a well kept lawn in various parts of Utah. Did you know that? The two aforementioned laws are just a few from a handful of the most outrageous laws from across the globe.

Nine times out of ten, a law is put in place with the general public’s best interest in mind. With that being said, today’s infographic showcases the top laws that make some scratch their heads a little.

Just the story behind the existence of these laws baffle me more than anything. What made masked gatherings banned in New York? Or why does a PC repair man have to have a private investigators license in the state of Texas? We need answers. [Via]

So let me preface this by saying that I don’t currently have a LinkedIn. I know I know, how can I expect to find a job without a LinkedIn. Countless friends have lectured me, and this infographic is just the push I need to get myself Linked. So this crash course on LinkedIn will be helping me just as much as everyone else here who is Linked-less.

LinkedIn is a useful tool for personal marketing, and this infographic will help you to use it to it’s full potential. Maintaining a full profile to keep first impressions positive, connect with anyone and everyone you know (any connection is a good connection), recommend others (the more you give the more you get) and many other tips can be found on this infographic. LinkedIn is a powerful networking tool, and as an upcoming college graduate I can get all of the connections I can get. So lets all go get connected! [Via]

Behind the Scenes with Universal Pictures [Infographic]

Like most people growing up, I loved going to the movies when I was younger. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy it now, too, but going to the movies when you were a kid was like a big event; everything was just so big and loud and awesome.

These days, there’s more to movies that I enjoy besides just watching the film itself. All of the elements that go into actually making the movie, the behind-the-scenes stuff, interest me a lot as well now. Depending on the movie, watching how it’s crafted and how it eventually comes together can sometimes be as entertaining as the finished product.

That’s why today’s infographic from Universal Pictures UK appealed to me so much. For its 100th anniversary, Universal Pictures released this infograpthic that has interesting facts about a ton of Universal movies from 1921 (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) to 2011 (Bridesmaids) with several in between. For instance I thought it was interesting that the budget for American Graffiti (1973) was exactly $777,777.77 and was made on time and on budget.

For fellow movie lovers interested in more facts about these movies refer to the infographic below and check out Universal Pictures UK’s Facebook page. [Via].

Cramming for your Exam [infographic]

Final exams are here and I’m stressed out of my mind. I even forgot to post today’s infographic on time, oops! The school I attend has given mercy to its students by gifting us two dead days to “study” for finals. Rather than study, most students put their studies aside and hit the river or party to celebrate the end of the year.

Today’s infographic touches on how effective cramming is when you decide to party during precious study time. It also lists effective study habits and tips to help you ace that final. I for one can attest to the statistic at the bottom regarding grade point averages and those who pull all nighters. I refuse to pull all nighters and I maintain a healthy above 3.0 GPA.

Fellow students don’t sweat the final exam monster. Just evaluate your work load and use today’s infographic to effectively study. Summer is practically near, so study hard! It will be so worth it in the end! [via]
