As a college student, the funds are limited but the beer is plentiful. Beer becomes a priority for most of my friends. Sure we drink a lot of Budweiser and miller to cut costs, but with the explosion of independent breweries the trend has moved towards trying many different beers. I type this sitting across from a mantel covered in beer bottles, and no two bottles are the same including seven varieties of Shiner, St. Arnolds and Stash IPA, to name a few. In addition, one of our favorite bars is Flying Saucer, a bar that boasts 240+ different beers and awarding each member a “saucer” of their own after trying 200 different beers.

These small, independent, traditional craft breweries produce tasty, hip beers that are gaining loyal customers. Craft breweries have grown faster than the beer industry as a whole, and us adventerous beer drinkers couldn’t be happier. Infographers, what is your favorite beer? Mine is Shiner Ruby Redbird, and I couldn’t be happier for it’s summertime availability. [Via]

Beards [infographic]

As a 22 year old male with the ability to grow nothing more than a neck beard I thank today’s infographic for giving me hope of being financially successful. As we all know manliness is measured by the facial hair on one’s face and today’s infographic A PhD in Facial Hair does a good job of outlining that FACT. Many people may already know dihydrotestosterone is the chemical responsible for both hair growth and balding, but did you know its levels vary by season? So don’t be surprised when you see bushier beards in the Summer.

Besides their obvious manliness factor, beards apparently may have served some evolutionary advantage. Providing ancient man with warmth, intimidation through a stronger jaw line, and protection- cushioning blows to the face. Although beards were/are considered manly one of the greatest conquerors of all time, Alexander the Great, required that his soldiers be clean shaven. So as to avoid any pulling the enemy army might be inclined to do.

Fellow unbearded men do not fear, according to today’s infographic on average we are found 2/3 more attractive than men with beards. Although clean shaven men tend to actually be more successful those with beards are seen as being of higher status, older, more-respected, and powerful. Women I’m sorry this is one sided, but it’s still interesting. Enjoy and share! [via]

Safe Gaming [Infographic]

As an avid gamer, I find stories on the news about violent gamers to be sad for the most part. Being violent towards others is just not a natural part of being a gamer. I mean you shoot stuff and blow things up, but for the most part you’re just on a mission to get some good stuff done and have some silly, random fun in the meantime.

News stories about gamers that are not only violent, but that are also inciting violence among others? I find those to be disgusting, and misleading about gamers as a whole.

Most folks that play video games (at least the ones that I know) are very kind, understanding people that would rather help a fellow gamer work through any problem or situation they might have instead of antagonizing them.

Everyone struggles through personal issues and occasionally requires the help of others. Most rational people understand that basic fact about their fellow human beings and they would offer their help; why would gamers be any different? Why would they want to hurt one another?

My point is that gamers on the whole seem to have gotten a bad reputation that they don’t deserve, thanks to a small number of antisocial bullies who should be considered black sheep and not at all a valid representation of an otherwise placid, peaceful group of people.

Everyone I know just wants to play the game and have some fun with each other, isn’t that what it’s all about?

For more information and statistics about gamers and their rising positive reputation, refer to the following infographic hosted by DeviantArt. [Via]

Cancer Worldwide [infographic]

I just finished participating in my first Relay for Life tonight and it was beautiful. It was so heartbreaking yet so inspiring to see such a large group of people who are so passionate about preventing a disease that stole their loved ones. I heard many stories of hope and sadness from survivors and fighters. I have such respect for those and their families for battling such a tough illness.

Today’s infogrgaphic from the World Health Organization gives an over view of the leading types of cancer around the world and their death rate.  I have been fortunate and am so thankful to have to not have experienced cancer myself or in my family. I will surely follow this infographic’s advice and invest in a healthy, smoke-free lifestyle to prevent cancer. [via]

College Drug Use [infographic]

As many of you know, today is a special day for those involved with the cannabis culture. What’s a better infographic to read about today than Drug Use On America’s Campuses?

According to the graphic, the only illicit drug that has lost popularity instead of gaining popularity in the last 20 years was acid. I’d love to say the drug war is working, but… I’ll you look at the facts yourself. Alcohol has also declined, but from 88% to 80% it is still safe to say the majority of college students love their booze.

The new drug of choice for college students is a performance enhancing drug called adderall, ritalin and many others. Over 50% of students have tried these drugs without a prescription. This ‘medicine’ is over-prescribed to our nation’s youth and is way too available on college campuses. The side-effects of mixing a college student’s two favorit drugs: speed and alcohol can be devastating. The energy provided by certain amphetamines can keep people awake and drinking until they poison themselves. (Didn’t Four Loco have to change their business because of this? Why doesn’t the prescription drug industry?)

College students will always go overboard with drugs and alcohol, the solution is to focus law enforcement resources on the more dangerous drugs. [Online Degrees]
