Funniest Deaths [infographic]

Death isn’t exactly an event most would consider funny (at least by contemporary western standards). Still, it happens literally all the time. The possibilities for death’s circumstances are dependent on an infinite amount of variables in every individual’s life. These variables collide in absurd, funny (albeit, darkly funny) ways more often than you would think.

In fact, as this infographic reveals, quite a few people have actually died laughing. The old expression has its root in history! This however, is probably the least ridiculous way to die listed below.

Among the top seven in the infographic are Death by Flaming Fart, Death by Sausage, and Death by Breasts. Some of them are far out, some obscene, some just silly, and some ironic.

My favorites are the particularly ironic ones, such as the inventor strangled by his own invention. That poetic irony has a way of cinching up a lifetime ever-so-perfectly. But that just might be the English major in me talking.

Anyway, I hope you are as amused by this collection of crazy circumstances as I was. (via)

The Cost of Technology Over The Decades [infographic]

First things first, I want to state how grateful I am to live in this century. Movies of the 80′s have been more than intriguing over the course of the past few months, but times were obviously hard back then. Cellphones weren’t nearly as mobile as they are now, cassette players reigned supreme, and I could talk until I’m blue in the face about the hair. Walkman’s and cellular phones with their twenty inch antennas set the pace for this ease of access society we live in. Price tags and all.

Paying for convience was quite a task just a few decades ago, as a cellphone was $4000+, an Atari was the same price as a Wii, and an Apple 2 ran you close to $3,000.

I’m still keeping in mind that these products were quite the advancement in their day and age, but footing the bill is not something I’d be interested in. [Via]

The World of Mobile Phones [infographic]

Cell phones seem like an essential part of an American’s life. I don’t know anyone without one and I’d say most people even have a smart phone. Countries like Saudi Arabia and Russia have a weird distribution of cellphones per people. I guess having multiple phones is popular in those places.

As our society relies more and more on cellular devices for our everyday needs we will become even more helpless when we lose our phones. I drowned two phones this summer. One in a hottub and one in my pool. I lost my iPhone in the hottub and going 6 months without my GPS, contacts, email, news, twitter, internet was horrible.

I did research over every single smartphone on the market and finally decided on the Samsung Galaxy II S. This phone is awesome. Voice control, huge screen and Swype for texting is like magic. I know when the iPhone 5 comes out it could take back my top spot, but I’ll have to make some careful comparisons. [So Mobile]

Tips for Saving Money [infographic]

Young people always want to be hip with the latest tech gadgets, but unfortunately we are also the age group with the least money and the most college debt. The goal of today’s infographic is to help you find a happy medium that allows you to maintain your lifestyle while saving you money. The American Institute of CPAs and the Ad Council created this Infographic as part of its national public service campaign, Feed the Pig to encourage millennials ages 25-34 to take control of their finances and make saving money a part of their daily lifestyle.

For starters, I’ve found that slashing cable and sticking with Netflix or some cheap web streaming service is a great way to save. I also love cooking my own food, I find it relaxing and its good to know exactly what I’m eating. Outside of phones, TV, and food, there is a lot of room to save in my opinion. Simply cutting out unnecessary items and being more frugal with your spending can produce results. Before I buy ‘wants’, I think about how badly I want it and how long it will last. A lot of money can be saved just by buying the right brand of a product. Good quality and cheap maintenance can save you tons in many products (cars, electronics, household appliances). Stay smart, save money.

Choosing a Career [infographic]

I just started watching The Office (right on schedule, seven years late), and in the middle of the first episode, mid laugh, I felt a sinking deja vu. That Office–vaguely at times and quite literally at others– reminded me of my office. And while I actually love my co-workers and feel a sense of pride in the work we do, there is no getting around how I never pictured myself working 40 hours a week in an office. I doubt many people do. And while reality often trumps fantasy, is there something to chasing that dream that all your work not feel like work at all?

Today’s infographic indulges the fantasy a little, tempering it with a needed splash of reality. After all, while some people require unique experiences in their dream career, others just want stability and good health benefits. [via]
