Since you all seem to like sleep infographics, for example this one, I bring you another one. As many of you know we spend one third of our lifetimes sleeping, but did you know that is 20% less than we used to sleep 100 years ago? Today’s infographic is brought to us byCoast to Coast. Today’s sleep infographic offers something a little different than previous ones. As you will see right at the top there is information about the different types of mattresses and their pros and cons.

One thing that really caught my eye in this infographic was the magnetic bed, so I decided to do a little more research. The bed can reportedly hold 900 kgs which is about 2,000 pounds, as you can imagine these are some pretty strong magnets. Due to the magnets it is recommended you no longer have anything metallic in your house and convert to all plastic. The bed is made by the Dutch and costs 1,200,00 euros which is 1,699,143.91 American dollars. However if a cool floating bed is not cool enough for you, how about a bed 10 feet by 12 feet? As a final note, happy April Fools Day! Don’t forget that April 2nd is Pillow Fight Day! [Coast to Coast]

“Well one time when I was in my late 20′s I decided, ‘why don’t I try my hand in this?’ I went to Home Depot and I bought all the metal I would need, then I went to HEB. I got whatever I needed…hops, yeast, barley (there’s a fourth ingredient; I forgot what it is.) then I picked-up some Gatorade and hummus. I uh, well I actually didn’t know how to brew my own booze so I took it home, followed the instructions on the interweb and got drunk.”

Rolling Stones [infographic]

I have always enjoyed the music of the Rolling Stones, but as of late I have become a true fan. Beast of Burden has quickly become one of my favorite songs. Beast of Burden first appeared on the album Some Girls in 1978 and is ranked number 435 in Rolling Stone’s top 500 songs of all time. If you haven’t heard this fabulous song click here to give it a listen, it is worth your time I promise. If you don’t like it feel free to complain.

In case you have not heard of the Rolling Stones they are a British band from London and formed in April 1962. Original members of the band include: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, and Bill Wyman. After several changes to the band the final line up or at least most current line up is: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood. The Rolling Stones have released over two dozen records with Exile on Main St. ranking at number seven in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time. The band’s first international number one hit came with the May 1965 recording of (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. The song currently sits at number two in Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Songs of All Time. The only song to top it is Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone. Enjoy today’s infographic and I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook! [via]

Defining a Data Scientist [infographic]

Today’s graphic is about an occupation I will never have: a statistician. My unfortunate lack of skill in the math department has held me back from this career choice. I know only how to blog and that has forced me on a budget that can afford only Wendy’s Jr Bacon Cheeseburgers. Besides math skills, this visualization has also mentioned the need for some hacking skills. Let me tell you I am no Napoleon Dynamite and hacking skills are not one of my strongpoints.

Although I may not be fit for data mining, our friends at Infographic World and Wikibon were the data scientists themselves in order to design this infographic for you. [Via]

Pick a Tablet Any Tablet! [infographic]

If you have not checked us out on Facebook yet, do it! If you don’t already own one, or even know what they are, tablets are the newest gadget fad to hit the market. The age of the tablet was ushered in with Apple’s iPad. However company’s such as Samsung, Motorola, and many others are joining the market. Soon enough it is possible that the tablet could take the place of laptops and laptops take the place of desktops. If you still are not convinced that the iPad is the tablet for you, today’s infographic should help you make your decision. In my opinion, the iPad is still the best tablet on the market. Android rocks on phones, but as a tablet operating system it lacks the bang Apple’s iOS has. Believe it or not, the iPad is one of the cheaper tablets on the market. However, if you do not like how closed Apple is and prefer the open source of Android, this infographic provides you with plenty of options. [via]
