I was in New York for 5 days last week, and 3 of those days were fair game — I had the option to do whatever I wanted in the city that everyone dreams of visiting. I did a lot of really fun things, but the one thing that was on top of my list was to visit the Museum of Natural History. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the museum 4 years ago as well, but boy is the museum so much more interesting and enjoyable when you have background knowledge of the exhibits! Visiting the museum was one of the highlights of my trip. I spent about 5 hours in there and only got through 3 exhibits. One of the most interesting exhibits though was about human origins. The exhibit had a really interesting video about Staph, and how a strain of it has evolved into MRSA. It was so interesting, I wanted to share an infographic about MRSA today. Read up and be sure to scrub yourself down after your workouts to avoid contracting MRSA! [via]

My Movie Moustache and Me [infographic]

December 18, 2013 |  by  |  Entertainment, Funny  |  No Comments

“Is there a greater mark of a man’s character than a moustache?” According to today’s infographic, and apparently Ron Burgundy, there is not. Facial hair has been a symbol of manliness and style for centuries, and has graced some of the most famous faces on the silver screen (some animated, some not). Today’s infographic is dedicated to mustaches and those who wore them best.

There’s “The Burgundy,” a stache that resembles a furry caterpillar who crawled under one’s nose and fell asleep — this mustache is modeled after Will Ferrel’s character in the movie Anchorman, and more recently, Anchorman 2; there’s also “The Butcher,” a rather classical looking mustache that has become something of an icon, seen on everything, from mugs, to bandaids, and unfortunately index fingers; there’s even “The Lorax” a shaggy looking mustache that somehow imparts wisdom about the ways of the world and nature conservation; and of course “The Chaplin” a stache worn by one of the greatest entertainers in history (and sadly worn by the scariest dictator of all time, but we’re celebrating Charlie in this case) — don a bowler hat with this stache and you’ll be good to go.

How To Be More Creative [infographic]

I’m posting this infographic because my creativity was missing last month. And I wasn’t sure what to do about it. I would sit at my desk with every intention of writing brilliant things, but the words were dull and gave little light to brilliance.

I decided to hunt for it. I went on walks collecting sticks that I would later turn into magic wands. I set up a twenty-person tent in my front yard for my birthday party and themed it “the way you felt when you were read your favorite children’s book.” I watched Amelie and wondered what it would be like to stalk someone. I re-read all of 2013′s journal entries (miserably inspirational). I read books of course. I started writing quotes on a little white board that sits above my desk. I lit a lot of candles. I eavesdropped. It worked. So here you have it, an infographic on harnessing creativity, in case you too have misplaced your creative side. [via]

Hipsters: The World Tour [infographic]

Ahh, the elusive hipster. I can’t think of my hometown Austin, Texas, without picturing my beloved city and its inhabitants of hip youths with ironic glasses from Warby Parker, and equally ironic tattoos (probably of some anatomically correct organ or beautiful bird) who bike to coffee shops (maybe Epoch or Spiderhouse), loudly voice their opinions about music (Foxygen acted like a bunch of divas on their most recent tour, but that won’t stop me from listening to them), and probably take too many pictures of their Maine Coon Cats. Today’s infographic showcases these beatnik types in all their pretentious glory.

German hipsters hang out in cafes on their macbooks all day (sounds familiar…) while enjoying some sort of drink called Club Mate, and they wouldn’t be caught dead without their “second hand fixie bikes” (seems like a dead ringer for an Austin Texas hipster to me); the French apparently like to chow down on baguettes, red wine, and cigarettes–chain smoking seems to be a favorite past time; while the Swedish are all about marathon training and growing their own gardens.

I know, I know, stereotyping is wrong and bad, but poking fun at today’s generation seems like a healthy exercise, and we’ve probably all picked up a few of these habits. Don’t take yourself too seriously and enjoy today’s oh-so-hip infographic. [Via]
