William Shakespeare. Just seeing that name takes me to a place where coffee flows, procrastination runs rampant, and book reports come back marked down for tardiness. Unless you reside under a rock or still working your way through high-school, you’ve heard of Mr. Shakespeare. Today’s infographic speaks on Shakespeare’s significance in regards to the English language, but not in the typical way.
Down below are eight quotes, phrases, and saying that can be credited to William Shakespeare. I’m sure you’ve heard at least one of them used in your lifetime. My intrigue with this infographic lies in the notion that Shakespeare has so many quotes and writings that are held in high regard by scholars worldwide, yet these get left out. I’m not saying that quotes such as “Et tu, Brute?” and “the world is my oyster” should be studied interchangeably. I’m just taking note of the vast influence Shakespeare had over language.

Do you know how much you drink? Often times, after a long night of drinking, you don’t realize how much you have consumed. Many people limit themselves to one drink, like beer or wine, in an attempt to not get drunk quickly. Today’s infographic sheds some light onto the actual alcohol consumption per drink.
The proper drink amount by type of alcohol is noted in the diagram of a solo cup. One serving of wine (5 ounces) will go a lot quicker than a serving of beer (12 ounces). Do you typically adhere to these measurements? I will definitely take this chart into consideration the next time I pour myself a glass of wine! [Via]

If you’ve ever been to a casino you know that they can be a very fun time, but that they can also leave your wallet considerably lighter than when you went in if you’re not careful. Knowing this, it should come as no surprise to learn that unlike many businesses in the U.S., American casinos are doing very well for the most part and project further growth between now and 2015.
Nevada casinos, tribal casinos and regional casinos are all expecting growth in the billions of dollars within the next three years according to today’s infographic from BusinessInsider.com. The only casinos that predict decline are those in Atlantic City.
For more information on the growth of casinos refer to the infographic below.

Internet by day, internet by night; everyone is on the internet at some point. Whether you’re a college student cramming for an exam with a Facebook study-break, or a middle-aged parent catching up on burning through some episodes of Lost, everyone’s got their own time of the day that they like to surf the world wide web. According to Bárd Edlund, as a whole, most of the internet is awake around 9 am EST. With this world clock he’s collected probability data for 25 countries accessing the internet at a given time of 24-hour day. The x axis describes the time of day by shade of gray (lighter being earlier in the day, and darker shades later in the night), while on the y axis shows the different countries via moon-like circles. The circle size describes the amount of people with internet broadband subscriptions.
This chart is only an rough guide though. Just because a country is awake doesn’t mean that they are necessarily online reading your tweets. It’s meant to be a way of thinking of how the world realizes their sleep schedules and how it could relate to internet surfing. So I guess it’s a good reason to have these posts available around 8 am after all. via
