Well, unfortunately the weekend is over and the work week has begun. Today begins the five worst days of the week- the work days. At least you have us here at Daily Infographic to provide you with fun and interesting infographics. Today’s infographic topic is cloning!

As long as I can remember there has been talk of cloning Personally I think cloning would be a pretty cool thing. I think it would be pretty cool to watch yourself, and even to interact with yourself. Hollywood has, of course, made many movies involving cloning. However, their cloning is as simple as entering a machine and there instantly being a copy of you. Science tells us that this is not in any way plausible and that cloning requires much more effort. If only everything were as simple as Hollywood makes it out to be.

As many people know, we really haven’t done that much in regards to cloning. In fact, we have only cloned a few animals and there hasn’t even been a large of variety of animals that we have cloned. This infographic clarifies in scientific terms what cloning is and the steps towards making a clone. Cloning is itself a topic of much controversy, and the need for stem cells to produce a clone only adds to the debates. We all know stem cells are a source of much controversy in and of themselves because of the use of embryos as a source. Hope you all enjoy today’s infographic, I found it to be interesting. [via]

Chemicals in Cigarette Smoke [infographic]

For you cigarette smokers (and non-smokers) out there here is an infographic on what is in your typical cigarette. For me, smoking is gross, and I don’t feel that anyone should be a smoker, but I cannot tell you what you can, and cannot do. I’m not here to hate on smokers and feel that anyone should be able to make their own choice. However, I am in support of laws that restrict where people are allowed to smoke. Main reason being that when you smoke, you are not only affecting yourself, you are affecting those around you as well. People around you are forced to inhale your second-hand smoke and get then are left smelling like a smoker even though they never took a puff. [via]

My Grandma is a coupon cutting pro. No joke, she cut coupons and shopped at garage sales until just recently, she let it be known –- she’s a Millionaire. From rags to riches.
