That’s What THAY Say [infographic]

Stereotypes are stereotypes because they are true? Maybe…Today’s infographic is a collection of data supplied by over a million people who were surveyed about their personal preferences. You’ll catch a few stereotypes in this information, don’t complain too much.

The ‘THAY’ stands for Teach Hunch About You. Hunch.com is a website that asks questions to its users, then uses the personalized information to recommend songs, movies, restaurants, et cetera that would interest you. They’ve taken some of their question data and plopped it in infographic form so you can devour the statistics.

One of the more surprising tid-bits of information I ran across was that it is almost a 50/50 split between people who swat flies and those who let them fly out a window. I always thought people killed flies cold-blooded. I had no clue that there is a massive population of fly philanthropists. It is also quite odd they would compare the death penalty to this, but it’s true, those who kill flies somewhat support killing people.

I also noticed it is a pretty close race between those that take off a bandaid fast to those that slowly peel it off. I myself, alway rip it off as fast as possible, but contrary to their data I have never broken a bone. [Via]

The Imperfections of the U.S. Judicial System [infographic]

I figured this infographic would be appropriate given the recent controversy in the Casey Anthony trial. Honestly I haven’t been following the coverage enough to form an opinion. But judging by my recent Facebook news feed, several of my friends have followed the trial and have quite a bit to say about it.

Considering how popular shows like Law & Order are, I’m sure this infographic will entertain the majority of you readers. As an engineering student, I must say the legal system goes way over my head in complications. I can’t even begin to make sense of it. But i still enjoy the occasional crime/mystery movie.

It must suck for the half of exonerees who have not received any financial compensation. [Via]

Women of War [infographic]

Respect and gratitude seem like shabby offerings to the men and women who risk it all to serve their country. Their service alone is admirable, but women in combat deal with the added risk that accompanies gender stigma. Beyond the stigma lie a slew of unique social perils. Today’s infographic showcases these brave women, their history with the military and their present issues within it.

According to the infographic, divorce rates are higher among female soldiers than they are among their male counterparts. Even scarier is the number of female service members sexually assaulted in 2010 coupled with the number of those who chose to report the assault. [Via]

Happy America Day! [infographic]

Happy 4th of July! Today in 1776 we declared our independence from Britain. Remember that, because you don’t want to be in the 26% of Americans who don’t know what nation we declared independence from today. Today’s infographic is all about the day that allows us to go all out and celebrate this great nation of ours. Celebrations usually including fireworks, bbq, drinking, etc.

Although America doesn’t have the reputation it once had with the rest of the world, I believe that we can make a come back. We are the greatest nation, I don’t say that out of arrogance, but out of pride in this country. We have the perfect ingredients to be top dog, we have just hit a road block at this moment. With capitalism we have competition and within our population we have our many different cultures, not to mention the perfect amount of compassion for others (all our social programs). Again I do acknowledge that right now all of that is in the crapper and we need to get our act together.

Although each of us has our different beliefs as a whole we are a pretty patriotic nation, and it shows in the naming of our cities. There are 35 places with the name Eagle in the United States, the most populous being Eagle Pass, TX, where my parents are from! Hopefully you’re not in a burn ban like Austin and will get to enjoy fireworks today. [via]
