First things first– my dad is a loyal Daily Infographic reader, and today is his birthday. Happy birthday Dad; I wish I could be there!

On to the infographic at hand…If you’ve heard it once, you’ve probably heard it a million times: conserve water. I have heard this maxim since elementary school, yet I wake up in the morning anticipating the one thing that will brighten my early morning prognosis, the long hot shower—please note the use of the word long. Unfortunately, I regularly take water, and its availability, for granted. If you are as guilty as I am, the infographic below, while basic and familiar, is a worthy reminder.

The average American family of four can live on 3 gallons of water a day, yet 400 gallons is closer to the daily usage. We can blame faulty faucets leaks and inefficient toilets, or we can start taking small steps to decrease our consumption. The infographic gives some simple ideas on how to start like turning off the tap water while brushing and only showering for 10 minutes (darn, they had to mention the showers). [via]

Celebrity Shortcomings [infographic]

I sincerely apologize, loyal infographers. My computer malfunctioned and I didn’t notice that this wasn’t up until halfway through my french art history class, where I was distracted by my iphone.

But the todays infographic is very juicy! In case you aren’t a pop culture/reality tv addict, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have split up after only 72 days of marriage. This tragedy has been all over gossip sites and entertainment tonight-esque shows. It has generated so much attention because her $20 million wedding was filmed and aired in two parts on E!, and I must admit I watched it all. Twice.

This infographic visually represents the very shortest celebrity marriages, and it makes 72 days seem like an eternity. How someone can be married for .25 days baffles me, but most of the time celebrity life in general baffles me. I guess the key to happiness is to be gloriously un-famous! [Via]

The History of Voice Over [Infographic]

I don’t know about you, but I am not ready for today. All Monday means to me is the expiration of fun fun fun. If you don’t know this weekend was Fun Fun Fun Fest (a music festival) here in Austin and it was pretty damn awesome one this year. Featuring acts such as Public Enemy, Childish Gambino, Slayer, Mates of States and several others. I spent the last half of yesterday listening and watching Baths, Del the Funky Homosapien, Flying Lotus, Diplo, only to be capped off by Odd Future. Needless to say this weekend was a blast and full of some really good music, for me at least. Not to mention the Longhorns beat the crap out of those Raiders this weekend as well.

Now that I have thoroughly bored you with my personal stories lets take a look at today’s infographic, The History of Voice Over. In less than 150 years voice over has gone from Edouard-Leon Scott recording a “phono-authograph” to the present where we have organizations of accredited voice over actors. If it wasn’t for voice over can you imagine how boring our video games and cartoons would be? Not to mention things like the radio or the ever awesome narration of Ron Howard on Arrested Development, would not exist. Hope you enjoy today’s infographic! [voice actor Scott Reyns]

My Breast Friends [infographic]

The very fruit of the female anatomy. Peaches, melons, you’ve heard it all before…That’s right: boobies. The lovable funbags we’re all very familiar with.

So, what’s the big deal? What’s so magical about these gelatinous masses? Well, for one, they attract quite a lot of attention. Some women detest this, some love it, and  some hunger for it. On the other end of that spectrum, there’s the men that have breasts and never wanted them… Poor guys. That’s why we have plastic surgery!

Whether it’s for approval, reconstructive, or purely “enhancing” motives, breast augmentation is the #1 cosmetic procedure in the US. Unfortunately, those procedures come with a variety of possible aftereffects. Those who wish to have a gallon or so of silicon in their bodies will often pay a dear price.  [Online Schools]

Ten Danger Zones For The Mobile Phone. [infographic]

Even a simple evaluation would show we’re nothing without our phones. It’s frightening how much I rely on a fragile piece of plastic. This neatly compressed hunk of wires and circuits stands as our mecca of entertainment, the capitol of communication.

With it we are invincible. With it, comes power. Boredom is obliterated; we’re completely wired into the world. An unwanted conversation with a passerby can be easily deterred just by the click of a button and total concentration on the screen. But without our phone, we’re at a major disadvantage. We’re placed in a cold world, sans the direct access to our friends and our planner and mp3 player and tip calculator.

If you misplace your phone as often as you lose the remote, the infographic will be very helpful. After seeing a few numbers, I decided to keep an extra eye on my phone. The next time you’re at a bar with your friends, or trying on a new shirt at your favorite clothing store, remember that if you’re not careful there isn’t a one hundred percent chance you walk away with your phone. I don’t like those odds. [Via]
