Rude Hand Gestures from Around the World [infographic]

Insulting someone out of sheer boredom is never okay! One should always seek to remain diplomatic and thoughtful of those around. One should not unnecessarily insult someone they did not mean to or cause a bar fight that could result in arrests. We should all let those stupid comments slide off our backs and be the bigger person when in the presence of “small” people.

However, there are times when you decide enough is enough! You’re so heated and there are so many different things you want to say to convey your message of utter disdain. Although so often we lose control of our words when we get mad. Our words don’t come out as they normally do and you end up saying something stupid.

When you get into situations like this and you quickly establish your position with “that” person with a gesture; be ready to go for what ever happens– let your actions do that talking.

The universal middle finger is good. It projects what you want to say and is very easy to understand. But does it say enough? Maybe you want to channel your inner Brit, stick up two fingers instead of one for a little more power. Use the rest depending on where you are, but remember that all of these are sure to get you into trouble. You’d better make sure you’re ready to throw down when throwing signs. [via]

How Does HPV Affect me? [infographic]

I’m sure you’ve heard of HPV, short for Human Papillomavirus. You just toss it in the category of STD’s and hope you don’t contract it, but there is much to learn about this certain virus. Did you know that HPV is actually a group of over 150 related viruses that can have symptoms ranging from mild genital warts to cancer? Also, around 80% of sexually active people will contract some strain of HPV sometime in their lives. Yeah, seriously.

Cervical cancer is what most of you all think when you hear about HPV’s ability to generate the big C. And that’s a good thing to know – almost all cervical cancers are caused by HPV. The science behind Human Papillomavirus is still under research, but recent breakthroughs have shed light on the link between HPV and cancer. It seems that HPV can rearrange host-cells in your DNA which in turn creates a better opportunity for cancer to take hold.

All this science seems like scary stuff, but don’t be afraid! Using protection like condoms, getting routine cervical cancer screenings and even getting an easy vaccine are great preventatives. Males and Females alike, don’t brush off HPV, prevent it today. [Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center]

What You Wish You’d Known Before Your Job Interview [infographic]

Job interviews are stressful. The reason they are stressful is because you have to make yourself look like the most outstanding applicant for that job. They shouldn’t be stressful though. I think that when it comes to interviews the main reason people don’t get the job is because they were too concerned about looking like the most outstanding applicant for the job. It’s easy to let anxiety compromise the interview. If I have any personal advice to give you, I would tell you to just be yourself. It might be cliche, but it truly is the best way to act when meeting anybody new for any reason. Employers are generally pretty intuitive when it comes to interviewing job candidates. So if you’re acting phony, you’ll most likely come off as a phony person. Below is an infographic that has some other useful tips for dominating a job interview. Another useful tip from myself, which also litters the infographic, is that appearance is everything. We’d like to think that people shouldn’t be judged solely off appearance, but the way someone looks makes an impression on you before you even make eye contact with that person. And it makes sense. Your appearance says a lot about you, whether you like it or not. For example, if I meet you, and you’re wearing a Led Zeppelin t-shirt, I will instantly know that you like Led Zeppelin. Not only that, I would go so far as to make the assumption that you like classic rock and roll. Even further, I would assume that you’re a cool person. Because Led Zeppelin is awesome. However, in the unlikely event that the shirt, to you, is meaningless, then you need to take that shit off right now. Poser. [via]

What 1% Will Save You on Your Mortgage [infographic]

I stopped smoking cigarettes. It’s worth starting to smoke just so one can experience the empowerment of quitting. But don’t start. When I stopped smoking I also stopped buying cigarettes, thus saving approximately $800 a year! I can buy a Nimbus 36 Inch Oracle Unicycle with that!

Now I am experimenting with being a Vegan. Many people believe that this is a more expensive way of living. I have yet to be convinced. As a vegan, I eat out less, and when I do I order a vegetable entree which is cheaper. At the grocery store I buy vegetables, rice, and beans, which is cheaper than meat, cheese and eggs (cheese is pricey!) In the end my saved money will end up going toward toilet paper.

Lastly is God’s gift to the world, beer. I don’t want to stop drinking the glorious drink, but its expensive and it makes you fat. Before I was 21 a friend of mine told me “Being 21 isn’t all that great, you just end up spending more money” This was the most true statement ever said. At least three times a week I am wondering if I’m going to buy beer, this is a new expense I never even thought about at 20! Maybe I’ll just lower my mortgage rate instead.

Tequila 101 [infographic]

I’m one of the few people that can actually handle tequila. Perhaps its my hispanic background that allows me to consume any type of tequila with out it completely annihilating my personhood the next day. Whatever the form or drink, I’m usually the only person to willingly request tequila. I usually take it in shot form (the lime and salt just give it the smoothest flavor!) or I’ll take it easy and request extra in my margarita.  Even though my favorite liquor is tequila, I’m sad to say that I don’t really know much about it.

Thankfully, this infographic has enlightened me on my favorite liquor. After checking out today’s infographic, I have determined that my favorite type of tequila is tequila oro. However, I am now curious of how tequila anejo and tequila extra anejo taste. Perhaps I’m not the tequila lover I boasted myself to be… Either way, I’m inspired to try out these new tequilas during these next few spring months. I encourage you to do the same! [via]
