This is pretty much our 2 month post today. Everyday for the past 61 days we have dished out information for you to eat up. I hope you’ve enjoyed it. We have till the end of the world in 2012 until I won’t have to write for y’all all the time. I’m going to miss it, but it is a sacrifice I’m going to have to take in order to go along with the apocalypse.
This graphic is about the death grip which squeezed out (or should I say stuffed?) healthy Americans. Fast food kinda sucks. It doesn’t make you feel good and it isn’t good for you. BUT IT’S SO CHEAP. Good argument. Seriously, I can spend $3.60 at Wendy’s and not finish my meal. Three Sixty and I can have a snack later? Why would I go anywhere else?
After Super Size Me, people’s opinion on McDonald’s, and fast food places as a whole has dropped. I really believe that by showing people how disgusting fast food can be, that movie must have have saved someone’s life. I’m sure it has helped some people be more healthy. I know that if there is only a McDonald’s and nothing else I will just go hungry than eat at that place. This map doesn’t look that surprising, but once you see the color of McDonald’s you will trip. Sonic also has a huge presence. I never knew how dense Sonic was from Central Texas all the way up through Oklahoma. Don’t eat fast food. I know I need to stop, but with my college food plan, fried chicken and I will be friends for one more year. [Via]Share This Infographic
Sharks are known for their prehistoric roots and fatal strength. Octopuses are extremely smart. I haven’t seen the movie, so I can’t tell you who won. I’m rooting for the octopus. Sharks are too popular. Everyone is always talking about them, but octopuses never get to be in the lime light.
Well sometimes, when they start to film their own documentary with a stolen camera. Or when we learned that they actually walk on the seabed, and that they disguise themselves as coconuts using the shell. Octopuses are way cooler. [Via]Share This Infographic
Those dumb people who say they don’t care about the environment have so many options that help themselves as well as the planet. Here are things that will save your money and your world.
Everyone getting energy saving light bulbs would save 700 Million dollars over a year. With that kind of money we could bail out a bank or none. Still, 700 Million is a huge amount. We could throw the biggest party ever. The government just needs to have a party tax that charges the amount of money a year you personally would save with the light bulbs. Then all 300 million of us would have the best fiesta this side of the Atlantic. There is no way we could ever top Kazantip
There is something I disagree with on this graphic. The low-flow high-flow shower head idea doesn’t add up. With a high-flow I can take a much faster shower than with a low-flow. I think they need to make a medium-flow if they are really serious about saving the world. They do say that studies have shown that low-flow actually does save a hella lotta water. There are always those shows on the science channel that talk about how the world is going to run out of water soon. I’m thinking low-flow could be the key to spread out our water supply to last centuries.
At the end of this graphic they will give you a statistic that will make you actually believe we could save a lot of money and a lot of the environment. Don’t believe it. It’s all lies. [Via]Share This Infographic
I don’t know how I feel about mountain climbing. I think it is the same way I feel about skydiving, I don’t want to do it. I don’t have an urge to go really high on anything. Roller coasters I can handle, bungie jumping? Negative. Skydiving seems like a waste of money and all it would do is frighten me. It is like an extremely expensive horror film.
Why skydive when you could scuba dive? No skydiver ever gets to watch a bird just hover with you while you fall. You just scream and fall way too fast. Under the sea there are millions of different types of wildlife that are just amazing. Some of the most beautiful fish will just swim up next to you and chill. Once while scuba diving I swam with a hammerhead and saw some of the most pristine reefs in the Caribbean.
The show Planet Earth showed what awesome animals lived in the deepest depths of our oceans. I wonder why in 1960 we could go down to the deepest trench in a sub, but now we only send robots? Also, why haven’t we started to build an underwater civilization? We have the technology and we desperately need more living space for our growing world population. I would love to be in a bubble world and my entire sky would be an aquarium. Some billionaire like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates needs to make one of these aqua-cities. They could make competing bubble worlds. I think I’d rather stay in the iBubble than whatever Bill comes up with. [Via]Share This Infographic
Mobile devices have evolved so fast in the last few years. I remember when I got a camera in my cell I was in awe. Soon the full keyboard became popular and now not only can you send out an e-mail from your phone, but 5 other people can too using wireless internet from your phone.
There is one problem that no mobile company has a fix to, or is trying to fix. Kids who take their phone out in the movie theater. Seriously, you got a text, so it obviously isn’t important because they didn’t bother to call. Let it be. You can tell your mom if you’re going to be home for dinner after the movie. Or if you are really worried, step outside to check it.
I went to go see Inception and this kid was playing Pokemon in the seat in front of me. We all were talking amongst ourselves about how he should turn it off. I’m sure he could hear us. I guess he was just bustin’ out the ignore card. I had to yell at him to get him to put it away. I’m pretty sure he said some french to his friend about me after that. Like I’m the one who was disruptive…
With all this new technology and pinpoint GPS in our phones, if the phone knows you are in the proximity of a movie theater it should just turn off your phone. At the least it should turn it off if you are under 18, and your phone should self destruct if you are under 13, especially if you have one of these phones. [Via]Share This Infographic
