Our Planet, From the Top to Bottom [infographic]

I don’t know how I feel about mountain climbing. I think it is the same way I feel about skydiving, I don’t want to do it. I don’t have an urge to go really high on anything. Roller coasters I can handle, bungie jumping? Negative. Skydiving seems like a waste of money and all it would do is frighten me. It is like an extremely expensive horror film.

Why skydive when you could scuba dive? No skydiver ever gets to watch a bird just hover with you while you fall. You just scream and fall way too fast. Under the sea there are millions of different types of wildlife that are just amazing. Some of the most beautiful fish will just swim up next to you and chill.  Once while scuba diving I swam with a hammerhead and saw some of the most pristine reefs in the Caribbean.

The show Planet Earth showed what awesome animals lived in the deepest depths of our oceans. I wonder why in 1960 we could go down to the deepest trench in a sub, but now we only send robots? Also, why haven’t we started to build an underwater civilization? We have the technology and we desperately need more living space for our growing world population. I would love to be in a bubble world and my entire sky would be an aquarium. Some billionaire like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates needs to make one of these aqua-cities. They could make competing bubble worlds. I think I’d rather stay in the iBubble than whatever Bill comes up with. [Via]

Epic 4G vs iPhone 4 vs Droid 2 [infographic]

Mobile devices have evolved so fast in the last few years. I remember when I got a camera in my cell I was in awe. Soon the full keyboard became popular and now not only can you send out an e-mail from your phone, but 5 other people can too using wireless internet from your phone.

There is one problem that no mobile company has a fix to, or is trying to fix. Kids who take their phone out in the movie theater. Seriously, you got a text, so it obviously isn’t important because they didn’t bother to call. Let it be. You can tell your mom if you’re going to be home for dinner after the movie. Or if you are really worried, step outside to check it.

I went to go see Inception and this kid was playing Pokemon in the seat in front of me. We all were talking amongst ourselves about how he should turn it off. I’m sure he could hear us.  I guess he was just bustin’ out the ignore card. I had to yell at him to get him to put it away. I’m pretty sure he said some french to his friend about me after that. Like I’m the one who was disruptive…

With all this new technology and pinpoint GPS in our phones, if the phone knows you are in the proximity of a movie theater it should just turn off your phone. At the least it should turn it off if you are under 18, and your phone should self destruct if you are under 13, especially if you have one of these phones. [Via]

One of my favorite sites on the Internet. I find myself using Wikipedia to research topics almost on a daily basis. One thing I recommend is timing yourself on this site. I can sometimes spend hours just looking up topics. Enjoy. [Via]

The Lifespan of Every TV Show [infographic]

The first season is always the best. It’s all down hill from there. I dare you to prove me wrong. In fact, today’s infographic showcases my theory. Why can’t any TV series make it past season 8 or 9? In any case, check out today’s infographic. I hear there’s a show in the UK called “Doctor Who” that’s been on TV since 1963 – but those crazy Brits watch weird shows anyway. [Via]

The Music Industry and Online Piracy [infographic]

We are all Pirates. Do not deny it. Every time you give a burned CD to a friend, put music on a flash drive, ask your kids to download you a CD, lend out your external, or download from the web you’re “stealing.” We are very nice pirates though. We don’t keep everything to ourselves, we share our booty with the world.

Sure, the music industry sucks. They’d rather sue people for absurd amounts than change their business model. That isn’t entirely true.  The big labels are changing how they make money, but with a such big corporations it takes a long time. Just think of all the lawsuits filed as the only way the record labels can fend off illegal downloading until they have a more diversified business plan. I’m not going to say basing your whole business on one source of income (album sales) was a smart thing in the first place. That was a horrible idea, but now they are paying the price.

I also hate that the industry whines all the time about how no one buys music any more and they blame it entirely on internet pirates. Look at where we spend our money in the entertainment industry now a days, video games. If someone buys 6 video games a year that is 360 dollars not spent on music. It isn’t like people suddenly have so much money that they can afford all forms of entertainment and keep spending as much money on music as they like. [Via]
