If you are a hardcore Harry Potter fan, you know that this week sees the opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One. Having read the books on and off and still not having read the last one I’ve been looking online for any information to catch up on what I need to know. One thing you may not know is that J.K. Rowling is the first writer to be a billionaire. Whether you are a fan of the movies or not, they are still making a ton of money, each one making more than its predecesor.

Some of you may be going back and reading each book to get ready for the movie, others of you are probably just watching the movies, and then those of you who are truly dedicated are doing both. Those of you doing both are probably also capable of reciting spells, knowing back stories to characters, and complain about every small thing that is not in the movie but in the book. Don’t worry I am not attacking you guys, I know people just like that, it is more fun to get so invested in something like Harry Potter. I will admit to being a fair weather fan and will only be watching the movies to get caught up.

Hope you enjoy this infographic, it is pretty cool to see how the Harry Potter series has evolved over time. Each book growing with its characters. Hopefully this new movie will not be a disappointment and will live up to all of the hype it is getting. [Via]

15 Things to Know About Marijuana [infographic]

November 12, 2010 |  by  |  Politics  |  4 Comments

Marijuana legalization was a huge subject this last midterm elections, arguably the most publicized and talked about proposition in the nation. Even though Prop 19 wasn’t passed I don’t feel that the supporters are going to back down. I hear they are gearing up for the 2012 ballot already.  We’ll have to wait and see if they can get those last few percents.

The arguments for the drug’s medical uses and the ones against it because of the Gateway Drug Theory are some of the biggest arguments around legalization. I think we can agree on one argument though — Your doctor isn’t drunk when you go see her and she won’t be high if cannabis is legal.

The drug war is also amping up in Mexico with their cash crop – Marijuana. If it was legalized in the states would the cartels suddenly be out of money? Could it be parallel to the old American gangs of alcohol prohibition? What if the cartels just switched their cash crop to another, more harmful drug, say cocaine. Would there be enough demand for coke in America to support the network of drug cartels?

All of these questions will probably be closer to answered near the 2012 election. Hopefully by then we will know the best thing to do to help save thousands of lives in Mexico. It is obvious now that the Mexican Government cannot handle this itself.

With the amount of attention Proposition 19 received nationally and globally, I can’t see the 2012 presidential candidates not having to pick a side, although I seriously doubt it being a deciding factor in the election. [Via]

What Are We Eating? [infographic]

Do you know what the average American eats? If there is one thing the media has made us well aware of, it is the fact that American diets are among the worst in the world. But do you know exactly what Americans are eating? Dairy products non-cheese are among the most common foods eaten in America weighing in at 181 pounds per year.

Corn, of course, makes the list being one of the most subsidized foods that our farmers grow. Unlike many other nations Americans have no limit as to what we can eat. We are provided with cheap food, that was even cheaper to make, allowing almost anyone to have access to food. However these cheap foods carry none of the nutrients we need, and are ever present with all the ones we do not.

For the most part these statistics do not seem so bad, at least not until you look at the bottom. Here is where those cheaply made foods come into play. Americans cash-in the least number of sick days and have some of the longest working hours when compared to the rest of world, meaning, our lives are always on the move. With always being on the go, Americans have very little time to cook and go shopping, allowing for fast food places to thrive; providing quick food at a cheap price. However if somehow you can make time to cook for yourself and do your own shopping, you will find that you have better control of what you take in. Making your diet healthier and consisting more of what you want, as opposed to being restricted to a menu. [via]

Global Arms Sales [Infographic]

Nothing better than a dose of arms sales in the morning I always say. Look who sells the most? America! We plan on selling over 120 billion dollars worth of advanced weapons to Saudi Arabia. Baah!!

I know they are our allies, but I thought there was some link between Saudi Arabia and Al Qaeda. It wasn’t because Bin Laden was born there or anything… was it? I’m just not sure if sending billions of dollars worth of weapons to a country with a strong extremist background is a good idea. I know that Saudi will be very responsible and not let any of those weapons get into the wrong hands, right? I do regret this post, as much Googling I did about terrorism, I’m sure I’m on the no fly list by now. Oh well, it was worth it to see you learn.

Enough politics, I don’t know anything anyway. In other news, well, the only news for the site, our blog is now on Alltop!
