Go Mavs! For those of you who did not see the NBA Finals game last night you missed the Mavs whoopin up on the Miami Heat. Now that basketball is over what are we supposed to do to kill time the rest of summer? Go outside? Hang out with friends? Perhaps go to a movie? If you happen to have an extra $10 laying around your should definitely check out one of the many, what seem to good, movies coming out.

Although summer seems to have become the time for super hero movies, every so often a video game movie is released. Today’s infographic, Video Game Movies by the Numbers, ranks the top grossing video game movies. The top grossing being Lara Croft: Tomb Raider having drawn in $274,703,340. Lara Croft of course was played by Angelina Jolie, one of four Oscar winners to in a video game movie.

Overall it does not seem as though video games translate very well into movies, as evidenced by the highest video game movie rating by Rotten Tomato at a mere 43%. Hopefully all you geeks out there enjoy today’s post! [via]

Let’s take a look at 2011 PokerStars SCOOP results and stats represented in this infographic. Although US players were not able to participate in this event there is a big increase in participation and amount of money earned by poker players from Nordic countries, Russia, France, Germany and the UK. See the increase of the number of entrants and countries participating this year as compared to last year. It’s obvious that the worldwide growth is a proof that online poker tournaments will continue on.

American Dudes & Fast Food [infographic]

It seems that McDonald’s is still the top dog of fast food, but ever since I saw the documentary Super Size Me, I stopped any trips to Micky D’s. That film really exposed the unhealthy aspects of fast food and the real problems it is causing. Fast food is simple, tasty, cheap and way too convenient. Driving over 10 minutes to a drive through seems like a hassle. If it was less available we may be able to dissuade people from eating fast food so often.

Let’s put the health issues aside, they compared Chipotle to McDonald’s? Chipotle may be food that is served fast, but it isn’t technically fast food in my opinion. The public may not be on my side though. It seems that 40% of men have been to Chipotle in the last 3 months. That looks like fast-food-frequency to me.

I’m glad that they didn’t use Jack In the Box, some of those weird food creations sold there look less than appetizing. The mascot of the guy “Jack” is weird in and of itself. Was he originally a bobble head from a car antenna or did the car antenna idea come from Jack’s head? I’ll try not to get started on Ronald or Wendy so you can get started on American Dudes & Fast Food.

The Truth About Hoarders [infographic]

Attention Daily Infographic readers! This is my first post, so go easy on me. While I usually like to be light-hearted and have fun, today’s infographic is a serious matter. Believe it or not, hoarding affects 5% of the world, and that’s a lot of people!

I myself strive for the opposite of hoarding, and I find a truth in the old saying “less is more.” The more possessions I gather, the less I seem to care about each item. However, I will admit that it is easy to get addicted to shopping and collecting.

Based on these statistics, it is likely that many of you reading this follow a hoarding lifestyle. Lucky for you, there are many professionals with psychology degrees that are willing to help you. But if you prefer the cluttered lifestyle and the endless journey to get more, then to each his own. I myself love learning different people’s tastes and thought processes, so I’d like to see some comments on why you like or dislike a hoarding lifestyle. [via]

School Food vs Prison Food [infographic]

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is a big hit in my family. I can usually count on at least one episode waiting on the DVR when I go home for a weekend. The latest episode features Jamie challenging a fast food purveyor, fighting for nutrition in a public school cafeteria, and teaching kids to think about what they eat. He also cried a little, but I can overlook that. Judging by today’s infographic, there is something legitimate to cry about.

This infographic compares an unappetizing prison lunch to an equally unappetizing elementary school lunch. The prison lunch is created “to maintain a moderate amount of nutrition,” while the school lunch is created to be nutritiously balanced; yet, the two look strikingly similar and cost roughly the same to create on an individual level. If that is the case, what accounts for the vastly different budgets? With all the campaigns for health, addressing childhood obesity, and tweaks to school programs, it is strange that this is the best they could come up with for growing kids. [Via]
