Top 10 Infographics of 2010 [Daily Infographic]

How was your Twenty Ten? Mine was pretty sweet. I started a website, got an internship and now you’re reading what I write. Badass eh? But, this year hasn’t been all candies and rainbows. A few people got stuck thousands of feet under the earth’s surface, a massive quake rocked Haiti and we found out the world’s governments are corrupt jerks.

Besides the good and the bad of 2010, we all know one thing, 2011 will be worse. You really think 2011 will be better than this year? The apocalypse is less than two years away now. Things don’t get better before the end of the world. Come 12/21/2012 so many diplomatic cables will have been released, government will be in anarchy. Australia will be sunken miles under the ocean, Mexican drug lords will reign supreme over our entire planet and all of the glass on earth will unexplainably melt. I don’t really know if the glass will melt, but wouldn’t that be such a cool apocalyptic thing to happen?

Aside from man-kind’s demise, good things can happen this year. If you’re in my lovely city of Austin, Texas: my friend is throwing a celebration of the arts south of Town Lake on the 8th of this month. If you’re not in Austin…Come to Austin. We have so much fun stuff to do here! (Also in 2011, I encourage everyone to watch all 6 seasons of LOST. In a row. Let me know if you would like to do this with me.)

All the other data-visualization sites are listing their top infographics of the year, so here are mine:

How Much Do We Really Recycle? [infographic]

Happy first Monday of the year! I hope everybody enjoyed their New Years celebrations. It may be hard to be getting back to work, but at least you have a new infographic to read! With all of your New Years resolutions, hopefully at least one of them includes some sort of resolution to be more Earth friendly. Today’s infographic is one that illustrates our “throw away culture.”

In this infographic we see something that many people don’t know- televisions are recyclable. For the most part, almost everything we own can be recycled. This is something not many people know; I never knew televisions could be recycled. In fact, 96% of an old television can be used towards making a new one. Recycling also has benefits beyond the products it produces, recycling saves on energy too. For example, a recycled aluminum can saves enough energy to power a television for up to three hours. Recycling is one small step we can take towards saving a planet to which we have already done serious damage.

According to this infographic, the average person throws away around seven and a half times their body weight per year. In an attempt to make my personal damage smaller, I make sure to recycle as often as possible. However, recycling is not always easy. Unfortunately several apartment complexes and public places do not offer recycling bins, but I make sure to save my recyclables until I am able to get to a bin. Though it isn’t much, at least I’m not just throwing away perfectly good recyclables. [via]

A new year has come and gone again, and now you’re another year older. For our young readers that must be awesome, but for our older generation I bet you guys are getting tired of aging.

I don’t have to worry because by the time I’m 50, there’ll be anti-age medication I can take everyday to stay young. I know, we kids are lucky. Have a wonderful New-Years Eve. [Via]

The Female Orgasm [infographic]

December 30, 2010 |  by  |  Lifestyle  |  No Comments

With a new year right around the corner and this being my last post before that time. I thought I would end the year right and provide you all with the most important infographic I have found to date. An infographic on the female orgasm. I have been holding this one in reserve, not knowing if it was appropriate, but now I figure what the hell. Apparently the female orgasm is not only allusive to men, but to women as well.

To some men and apparently women, the female orgasm may be like spotting a unicorn, you want to believe it exists, yet you have never seen it, making it just a little more unbelievable. For others it’s like Haley’s Comet, only coming around once in a blue moon. On the other side of the spectrum, there are those lucky ones, for who it’s like brushing your teeth, happens everyday; in the morning before work, between meals, before going out, and definitely before bed. For those discouraged and non-believers this infographic should help.

Men, according to this infographic we are just as knowledgeable, if not more so, of the female anatomy, so that excuse is just no good. I think we can thank the internet for this knowledge; porn, for some a learning tool for others a way “to get to know yourself.” Either way it is undeniable that men are watching it and learning from it, although at times forgetting it is not real and having the wrong expectations when it comes to real sex. Remember porn is not real and too much masturbation will make you go blind and grow hair on your knuckles. [via]

The State of WikiLeaks [infographic]

Wikileaks. Wikileaks. Wikileaks. That is all the news seems to be talking about now. Kind of annoying isn’t it? Everyday, something new about how some government is corrupt and blah, blah, blah. Who cares? It isn’t like any of this will effect me personally.

It doesn’t matter that the DEA has become “a global intelligence organization with a reach that extends far beyond narcotics, and an eavesdropping operation so expansive it has to fend off foreign politicians who want to use it against their political enemies” according to the New York Times. We need to stop narcotics wherever they may be. It doesn’t matter if we invade other countries and spy on their citizens without their knowledge as long we get some cocaine off the streets of our planet.

Throwing the alleged Wikileaks whistleblower Bradley Manning indefinitely in solitary confinement and letting him go on one walk for one hour a day is the smartest thing to do. And I’m glad our country is doing it. If we didn’t do these horribly unusual techniques maybe he would seem level-headed and could relate to the American public once he is released. Now he’ll be so mentally screwed up he can’t possibly be considered lucid!

I hope our government does everything it is capable of to stop more leaks from being released. I’m tired of the news obsessing over this nonsense. I just want the only corruption I have to worry about to be if the winner of American Idol was legitimate. [Via]
