Everything You Need to Know About America’s Oil & Gas Economy [infographic]

Gas is so cheap right now, I’m laughing at every Tesla driver on the road. Just kidding… Every few years, we have an oil surplus and gas gets cheap for six months or so, then it miraculously starts to get more expensive. Two years later, and we’re seeing the most expensive gasoline in history. Don’t call me a pessimist, it just always happens like that.

Enough of my gas price complaining though – I’ve got plenty more things to complain about with the oil industry. FRACKING FRACKING FRACKING. That’s all I hear about these days. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I’ve had oil barons speak to my classes claiming, with extreme confidence, that fracking doesn’t hurt the environment. This just isn’t true. There are piles of evidence against fracking at the moment. Maybe there is a better way to frack, but I feel like my state of Texas is really feeling the unregulated force of the oil industry. Denton, a Texas town near Dallas, has completely banned fracking by public vote. Talk about democracy. It’s this type of political action that will ultimately quell the oil companies.

Before you start calling me a stupid hippie, I know natural gas and oil are vital to our country at the moment. Once renewable resources start to overcome oil in decades to come, those huge corporations will be at the pointy end of the stick. [via]

Fox’s ‘Bones’ by the Numbers [infographic]

The 200th episode of Bones premieres tonight on Fox, and I can’t wait. I jumped on the Bones train a few seasons late, but it’s impossible to resist Seeley Booth’s charm and Temperance Brennan’s unique personality. Don’t even get me started on the rest of the squints, because each one is better than the last. (If you don’t know what that’s referring to, it’s obviously time you got started watching Bones.)

In the spirit of the big episode, Fox and some Bones fans teamed up to create this crazy, data-filled infographic featuring details from all 10 seasons of the show. The infographic shows the motives for the murders, which added up to 376 deaths so far in the series. It also breaks down the race and gender of every victim and killer. The relationship of Booth and Brennan – which, in my opinion, is one of the most interesting aspects of the show – is also detailed below.

Basically, there’s a whole infographic here of reasons to watch Bones. Now, for those of you who are new to the show, 200 episodes isn’t that many. Just settle in, grab the remote and some popcorn, and get that Netflix marathon started!

Beer. It’s Red Stripe! (And a ton of others). Beer has been around for over 4,000 years. It was mostly brewed by women, is now brewed in the White House, and great quantities seem to disappear in facial hair. Those are just a few small facts today’s infographic will provide.

I’m not gonna lie, some of our long-time readers may have seen some of these facts before when we posted the 24 Fun Facts About Beer infographic. This one had five more facts and because of my love of beer, I had to enlighten you all.

Thanks to the growth of craft beer, our tastebuds are experiencing styles and flavors from far away lands and hundreds of years old recipes. The craft scene in Austin has grown so exponentially that most of our breweries can have extremely good revenue without ever selling outside the Austin market. Let’s keep this beer revolution going – Budweiser just tastes like piss… [via]

Drinking coffee in the morning is an ongoing ritual in my home. A hot cup of coffee with a pastry is one of my favorite ways to start a day. I love the smell, the taste, and the warmth that a cup of coffee gives each morning. I am not alone in my ritual, a lot of people do the same thing each morning, afternoon, and evening. Coffee is a huge industry that people around the world contribute to. This infographic contains some interesting facts about the history and consumption of coffee.

Coffee has been around for over 11 centuries and it has been banned three times in history. I would have moved to another country to have my coffee. Coffee also helps in the prevention of certain diseases, but only in men. Also, coffee is the second most traded commodity on Earth.

Coffee has become important to consumers, producers, and to governments. Coffee has become part of our lives and will continue for generations. My love of coffee is new, but I now relish every cup. The next time you get a cup coffee, do not quiver. Be bold and savor it.
