World Octopus Day [infographic]

Before we begin, World Octopus Day is actually October 8th, but I’m just preparing you all so that you may celebrate these amazing creatures when the time comes.

Octopuses (contrary to popular belief, “Octopuses” is the correct plural, not “Octopi”)  are my favorite animals. They’re intelligent, they change colors, they can change shape, they have eight legs, and they can kill you. Not really. I just wanted to scare you. Unless we’re talking about the venomous blue-ringed octopus, which has been responsible for at least two human deaths. In fact, all octopuses are venomous. They inject their prey with venom through a beak, which is made up of the same stuff as a lobster shell.

These aggressive creatures are all muscle. Ninety percent of their body mass is muscle. They also have three hearts. I guess you’d need three hearts if you laid 100,000 eggs. The average litter is actually only about 80 eggs, but still, momma’s gotta have enough heart to distribute equal love.

There are 300 recognized species of octopuses. The giant pacific octopus can weigh up to 60 pounds.

I guess the only drawback to being an octopus is that each of their suckers on their tentacles are sensitive to both touch and taste. So whether they like it or not, they have to taste what their grabbing on to.

I hope you’ve learned a lot today. I’ll see you on October 8th. Party at my place. Bring your own octopus. [via]

Celebrity Engagement Ring Rip Off: What They’re Really Worth [infographic]

My brother Jay, founder of Daily Infographic, is getting married just next week. Although it will be the greatest day of his life, the price tag for such an event isn’t cheap. Venues, catering, staffing, photography, and many more elements go into a modern wedding. These costs pile up, and without a good wedding planner, there is a chance you’ll get burned by the price.

The costs of a wedding start way before the big event. The first day you start to research engagement rings brings the reality of the sheer financial cost of a marriage. Spending thousands of dollars on a engagement ring is the norm nowadays. Getting the right price for the ring is another story. Today’s infographic takes a look at the ridiculous amount of money A-listers spend on engagement rings for their significant others.

Two of entertainment’s best each spent five million dollars on an engagement ring. Holy cow. Why not buy your spouse their own freaking island instead of a rock for their finger? I would much rather have 23 acres in the Pacific than an accessory.

I know there is a lot of meaning behind wedding bands, and finding the right one takes a lot of time and money. Do your research and make sure to get the most bling for your buck. [Brilliance]

How To Disappear Online [infographic]

Time to put your tinfoil hats on, folks. There’s no doubt that everyone’s out to get you, so now is a better time than any to lay low for a bit.

Maybe you got bored between shows with your crude, fantasy-inspired metal band, and burned down some churches as part of your Neo-Nazi manifesto. Perhaps you started a flame war about the new Taylor Swift video on Neopets, and strangers across the country keep sending pizzas to your house with a vengeance. It could just be that you want a clean slate with social media because Aunt Sharon is leaving some of the lamest comments on your pictures. Whatever your reasons may be, I’m not here to judge; I’m here to help. It can be a bit tedious if you want to get really comprehensive about it, but the bulk of what you can do is actually pretty simple and painless.

In this day and age, a lot of our culture exists and derives from the Internet. There’s no shame in being sentimental about it, so queue up some music for the added hazy, melancholy theatrics, and welcome to your new low-key lifestyle!

Where Are People Most Honest? [infographic]

Did you know Hawaiians from Honolulu are some of the most honest people in the nation? Not to say that the rest of the U.S. is dishonest. After selling iced tea on the honor system for $1 a pop, Americans had a 95% overall honesty rating. Not bad, huh? Can you guess where the worst rating was? Providence, Rhode Island. Maybe if Providence was actually a tropical wonderland like Honolulu, they’d be more inclined to pay for their tea.

In this experiment, Honest Tea measured some other metrics as well. Those who like the show Cops, listen to rock & roll and have been separated from the person they love tend to be slightly more honest than others. Also, some people didn’t pay the fee with the U.S. dollar. A lot of participants used foreign money, coupons or another creative way to ‘pay.’ It shows we as a nation don’t tend to steal something outright.

The gap for honesty wasn’t very large, and that seemed to be true over all of the tested ideas. Even though women, blondes, and dog lovers were slightly more honest, it doesn’t mean too much. With only a small percent margin in difference, this little test has proven that we’re all pretty honest people in America. [Honest Tea]
