If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that Bill Murray is the shit. So lovable and relatable as a person, Mr. Murray has taken America/THE WORLD’s heart with great impunity and fervor. Born upon a flying dragon in a distant universe, Bill Murray was given to us mere mortals as a gift from the great beyond. As a boy he climbed through the ranks of human civilization as a man of his time; and a man of time itself. From his roles as shmoozers, near-mentally-handicapped (Caddyshack), the smart-asses (Ghostbusters/Rushmore), to the Andersonian apathetics. He has shown us the depths of Bill Murray and of depths within ourselves.

The pope of parties, the man of movies, the believer of the Jaguar Shark, Bill Murray might be coming to a town near you, looking for a place to crash. As part of his ‘Party Crashing Tour’, he is traveling to 38 different cities this August and September. Requirements include crashing space, karaoke, and party vibes.

THE HISTORY OF CAPS LOCK [INFOGRAPHIC]

August 17, 2012 |  by  |  Internet  |  5 Comments

We’ve all been there. You’re trying to have an adult conversation over the internet and an argument arises. All caps fill the screen, your eyes melt out of your face and you admit defeat. In all seriousness, caps lock is the devil. No one ever capitalizes more than two words. The only defense for anyone typing in all caps is to ‘get a point across’ AKA, ‘be annoying.’

In 2011, Google released their Chrome Book with the caps lock button replaced by a Google search key. What a way to trim the fat, Google. Way to take a step in a direction most companies don’t have the balls to take. If I was going to compare the caps lock key to another useless necessity it would be pennies. Except with a few hundred pennies you could by a pack of gum, with a few hundred caps lock keys you can’t buy squat.

Maybe I’m biased against caps lock keys. Maybe you just use it too much. [Via]

Who Votes in America? [infographic]

With the presidential election only a few months away, presidential candidates Barak Obama and Mitt Romney are in that final stretch of trying to get the public’s votes.

It’s true that voting in America is on the lower end when compared to other countries, so my question is who actually votes in America? Who should the presidential candidates be reaching out to? Today’s infographic lists what kind of people actually get out to the ballots and vote. Turns out the very people you would expect to vote are the ones that do. I’m talking about people who are middle aged, educated and married.

America needs to devise new ways to reach out to those who do not vote. Whether it be through pledge cards, or bringing the voting to the home. Americans need to do a better job at practicing their right to vote. [via]

Napping [infographic]

Do you feel as if there aren’t enough hours in the day? Maybe you’re not utilizing them correctly. As today’s infographic suggests, a simple twenty minute nap can have your mind and body running at optimal performance.

When I was a young boy, my mother was the queen of naps. Me and my sister always knew not to bother her for anything during this time, because she was generally a happier camper when she arose from her slumber. I’ve never been much of a napper myself, just because that big burning ball in the sky says it’s time to rise and grind. But whenever I do nap, the feeling I get afterward is quite nice.

Some of the greatest historical figures, ranging from Einstein to Da Vinci have been documented nappers. Whether you’re nodding off for five minutes or an hour, a brief venture to the dreamworld can increase your level of alertness, increase your mood, stamina, and even have long term health effects. Finish the week off strong with a nap a day. And remember, I’m not liable for any damages caused by excessive napping. [Via]

Dine and Dish [infographic]

With the rise of Instagram, blogs and lifestyle sharing, there has been a similar rise in the need to display daily meals. If you are going to blog and photo your life, it is reasonable that your meals, a very key part of each day, squeaks in. This food pairing leaves me hungry after just a brief glance at my Instagram or Pinterest feed. Today’s infographic gets into the statistics behind the food sharing phenomenon.

With just under 30% of consumers being connected to social media when dining at home and just under 19% being connected while dining out, social media users are exposed to their friends and followers’ eating patterns and habits. This can be helpful for restaurants, driving revenue through customer photo-sharing.

A rise in food websites has accompanied the rise in food sharing quite nicely. Sites like Yelp and Urban Spoon encourage users to post photos to their reviews, allowing potential customers to get a “taste” of what is to come. Are you a fan of the social-food-media combination, or do you prefer to keep your culinary choices to yourself? [Via]
