World’s Biggest Data Breaches [infographic]

At this point, are you even surprised when you hear news of another company data breach? Or, like me, do you roll your eyes and religiously check your bank account for the next few weeks?

It seems like every other week, another popular store has been victim to hackers, and consumer’s private information has been stolen. Chick-fil-A is currently in the news for a potential credit card data breach. And I went there twice in December. Oh well, I wasn’t attached to my debit card number anyway.

As I was searching for articles about the latest data breaches, I discovered this awesome interactive infographic. It shows data losses of over 30,000 records, with the largest at 200 million. The coolest part of this graphic is the number of ways you can filter the information for your viewing pleasure. You can sort by year, method of leak, number of records stolen and data sensitivity.

My favorite part is that it’s color coded. [via]

The World’s Most Expensive Movie Props [infographic]

January 3, 2015 |  by  |  Entertainment, Movies  |  No Comments

The world of Hollywood has always been a mystery to the masses. The environment movie stars live in tends to be a trial of ups and downs. Show business is a place that can make and break the biggest stars. Money seems to grow on trees, with movies costing tens of millions of dollars to create. The importance of the movie star has been around since the beginning of film. Marilyn Monroe, the quintessential ‘movie star,’ is our best example of the rise and fall of Hollywood’s greatest.

No surprise that the white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch has the top spot for the world’s most expensive movie prop. Someone paid $4.6 million for that thing. Literally a lifetime of wealth. Whether these stars become sex symbols, powerful influencers, politicians, or the funniest man on earth like the late Robin Williams, tragedy can befall all. The dramatic life of these stars, combined with the notoriety of blockbuster films they lead in, can only create a trail of priceless memorabilia.

Not only do movie stars drive the price up for movie props, movies grant some props with personalities of their own, like Wilson from Cast Away. The Delorean from Back to the Future has compelled fans to seek out Deloreans from around the globe. If only an A-lister would mail me some of their props. I might be a rich man one day. [via]

10 Amazing Hair Facts [infographic]

January 2, 2015 |  by  |  Lifestyle, Mind-Blowing  |  No Comments

I’ve always wondered when hair became something so associated with beauty. At what point in human history did someone start to cut their hair? My guess is that it would go back thousands of years. Before we all teased, shaped, and molded our hair follicles for looks, I bet people just got tired of it getting in everything. After getting tired of using makeshift hair ties, our ancestors must of taken the plunge and crudely cut their locks. I’m sure they used it once cut. Maybe for brushes or other tools.

Looking back at more recent history of some of the Chinese Dynasties, British royalty and tribal African hair styles, we’ve moved far away from the practicality of cutting hair into some obscured styles. Why were hair pieces or those weird white wigs so big in the West during the 1700′s? They were absolutely ridiculous looking, and must have itched like no other.

No matter the style or reason, I’m sure future generations will create even crazier styles, and look back at our slice of history in utter disbelief as well. [Via]

Rest in peace 2014, because 2015 is here to stay. Hope everyone is feeling okay today nursing your hangover. Time to get over it and start following your new year’s resolutions! Go get in that packed gym and work out. Stop eating fried food or drinking Coke. Personally, my resolution is to eat more salads. I think I’ll be able to keep up with it. Keeping it simple helps me actually keep to it.

New Year Traditions From Around the World [infographic]

December 31, 2014 |  by  |  Holiday  |  3 Comments

New Year’s Eve has always been one fun holiday, in my opinion. When I was little, I celebrated the stroke of midnight by setting of a bunch of big, loud fireworks. (With parental supervision, of course.) Now that I’m older – and of legal drinking age – I celebrate by popping a bottle of champagne. Being from a Southern state, my family has always followed the tradition of making and eating black eyed peas for luck on New Year’s Day.

Although I love the traditions I’ve always followed to celebrate this holiday, I can’t help but want to explore others. For one, I’ve always wanted to be in New York to see the ball drop at Times Square, instead of watching it on my TV. According to the infographic, there are other interesting traditions that people all around the world follow to celebrate.

While some sound crazy – like diving into a frozen lake in Siberia – others aren’t too far of a stretch from my traditions – like eating grapes in Spain. Whether you celebrate with fireworks, champagne, or different lucky meals, it’s always fun to ring in the new year with good people.

And if you need some inspiration or helpful tips on making New Year’s resolutions, check out this infographic.
