Harry Potter Films by the Numbers [infographic]

Have you seen our 300th infographic about fish? Spencer posted it yesterday, but fish is old news. The last installment of the Harry Potter film series came out this morning at midnight. If I was a good twenty-year-old I should have read every book, but I wasn’t. I guess I was too busy reading Dune. I did attend almost all of the movies though. I haven’t seen the final 2 parts but I hope to change it in the next few days. They are good films and maybe one day I’ll read through all of the books. [Via]

Good Fish Bad Fish [infographic]

I love fish, especially when it’s Alaskan salmon. Lucky for me, this infographic tells me it’s okay to keep eating it! Although we may not all agree, I believe fish is one of the tastiest healthy foods out there. If you’ve watched or read anything about health you’ve probably heard about the importance of fish oils. Believe it or not, the “fatty” oils in fish can actually help cut body fat! (some exercise also helps)

Alright so it’s time to go to the store and buy every type of fish right?! Well according to this infographic, not necessarily. It informed me that buying fish appropriate to your region can help maintain healthy fish populations. If you get a good zoom in on the infographic you can also see what methods are used to obtain the fish depending on region. Apologies to our non-U.S. readers, I can’t give you much advice on which fish you should be eating.

Obviously in every region there are lots of options for acceptable fish. The infographic has its limitations as it does not give you the overall health benefits of each type. One of the main concerns people have when eating fish is the mercury content. This article gives a good rule of thumb as to what fish are good and how much of them you should be eating. Another general concern is wild caught vs. farm raised fish. I haven’t done much research on this, but from what I’ve heard it’s better to avoid farmed fish.

I enjoy exploring new types of food and I definitely have not tried all these types of fish. I’d love to see some comments on your favorite fish and why you like it. [Via]

How Our Laws Are Made [infographic]

As the national debt and budget issues monopolize the airwaves, it strikes me how little I remember from my undergraduate government courses. I can rattle off the names of several key representatives and senators, but the inner workings of their roles conjuring a bill into a law are a bit fuzzy. If you have found yourself in a similar predicament (or you are a political science buff who thrives on clever ways to explain governmental processes) this infographic is for you.

With the aesthetics of The Game of Life, today’s infographic thoroughly walks us through the trip a bill takes from introduction into the House of Representatives through publication as an official law. [Via]

Nom The Vote [infographic]

This infographic definitely makes me hungry, mostly for some chicken curry, bistro fries and some wine. And while I would identify myself as a liberal, every once in a while I could go for some meatloaf and a soda. So this may not be completely accurate, it is a good indication of who I would like to take out to dinner. [Via]
