Over 350 million have been sold world wide and an estimated 1/5 of the world has attempted to solve this cube. My roommate can solve it, I can’t. Who’s the cooler one?[Via]

1917 – Bread Rationing [infographic]

September 7, 2010 |  by  |  Food  |  No Comments

Hello everyone. We are making a few small changes here at Daily Infographic. First and foremost, we are going to stop posting infographics on Saturday and Sunday. I know we’re Daily Infographic, but none of you seem to go to the site on the weekend…(and we’re lazy). There is a good possibility we will bring weekend posts back. If you have an opinion on weekend infographics, voice it in the comments section below.

The other change isn’t really a change. I just wanted to say I took Labor Day off. Sorry. I also learned that I don’t have as many hoes as Ludacris does, at least not in as many area codes. That could have been yesterday’s graphic? Let’s get on with today’s.

So, I’m kind of a history buff. I don’t read out of history books or anything that extreme, but I do have an interest in what has happened in the past. This infographic could be older than your grandma, or maybe even your grandma’s pet tortoise. Although the information in this graphic isn’t really of interest to you today, have some respect for the designers of the early 20th century.

The graphic does paint a sobering picture for those alive in 1917. With almost half of the nation’s bread supply being shipped off to the the allies, our ancestors all had to become bakers. The poster does get a little intense.

“Without it, Democracy is doomed.”

The ‘it’ in that sentence is a loaf of bread. Yes, Democracy’s main pillar of support is wheat and an oven. Why are we sending troops to the middle east when we could just send bakers? [Via]

20 Pretty Cool Things About Beer [infographic]

Ahh, it is finally Friday.   Forget about school, work, or whatever you do and go out and party. Now I don’t drink because I’m not of age, but I’ve heard that if I did, my preference would probably be Texas brewed beers. Why? I’m a Texan and think my state is better than any other region on earth. Why taint my liver with stuff I can’t get from Texan brethren?

For cheap beer I would go Lone Star. It’s the hip thing now if you haven’t heard. Classier than Keystone and Natty, and it’s a lighter beer that isn’t labeled ‘Light’ so I’d feel cooler when I drank it. Yeah, they have Lone Star Light, but that’s for frat boys and soccer moms.

Shiner Bock is also a Texas brew. Shiner has tons of varieties, and they make a new one every year. This year was their 101st year and they concocted a crisp, Czech style pilsner with only four ingredients. During their 96th year they made up a beautiful amber ale called Oktoberfest, it’s toasted.

A mistake that I think some German folks in Texas make, including Wurstfest, is that they celebrate Oktoberfest in October. According to a German exchange student in my business-law class I discovered that Germany has Oktoberfest in September, to celebrate the coming of October.

I, for one, never thought of October as being a good enough month worthy of a nation-wide, two week festival. But, because I have a majority of German blood, I must abide. [Via]

Mining, for Ore and for Oil [infographic]

Recently 33 people have been trapped in a Chilean mine because of a collapse. Officials are saying it will take three to four months to reach those trapped.  Hopefully everything else goes as planned and they can all get out safely.

Also, another oil platform exploded either today or yesterday in the Gulf of Mexico. The platform was much smaller than BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig, and all 13 employees got off safely. Because this new oil rig isn’t drilled nearly as deep as BP’s, stopping any leaks will be much easier. We’ve informed you about the Mariana Trench before, and the Deepwater Horizon almost drilled as deep. Ridiculous. [Via]

20 Weirdest Posts on Craigslist [infographic]

We’ve talked to y’all before about Craigslist, we just focused more on the company than the users. Now we get to see some of the craziest things people have posted over the years.

If  you have never seen the ‘Best of Craigslist‘ page you need to go over there now. This is a constantly updated database of some of the funniest, and weirdest Craigslist ads ever.

For example, here’s a “Best of” that is titled I stomped on your fire, you choked on a biscuit, in the “missed connections” category.
You: passed out on the grass after choking on a biscuit and slamming your car into a guardrail at Franklin and Harding.

Me: driver of silver bug with 2 women in the car who stopped and put your car fire out.It’s been a bad month, so if you would get me a new fire extinguisher, I would appreciate it. Also don’t eat while driving in the future, it’s dangerous, as you discovered.

They also list the city that these are posted in.   I’d love to see what crazy things other Austinites have been doing. [Via]
