Okay, hold on for just a minute and bare with me here. Yes, the statistics of this infographic are specific to Australia. However, absolutely anyone that drives a motor vehicle – even if it’s at the bottom of the ocean (alright, alright, that is a rad octopus, but keep your eyes on the road) – would benefit from this information.

Think of it as a philanthropic endeavor! All you have to do is read the facts below, and just like that you’re making the world a better place by increasing your self awareness as to what you can do to avoid a car accident. I mean, come on, you could save lives. Maybe you’re driving right now and reading this, but are reluctant to read any further because you almost just hit the F-150 with the truck nuts in front of you, and feel like maybe you should pay more attention. First of all, you’re a hypocrite for even making it this far and not finishing. Second of all, go ahead and bookmark this bad boy because it is very pertinent info!

How to Make Quick Meals Healthier [infographic]

Sometimes, there is just no time to make yourself a healthy and delicious meal. It happens to the best of us. You’re driving home from work or school, thinking about all the stuff you have to do once you get there, and you are just not looking forward to cooking yourself something for dinner. So, you pull into Chipotle for the third time this month. Or maybe you’re the type who prefers to stop at the grocery store for a frozen lasagna. Thankfully, there are ways to make your favorite takeout and frozen foods healthier, while still being convenient for you.

A few of these suggestions include swapping the standard options for a healthier one, like substituting sweet potato fries for french fries. Others suggest going easy on certain ingredients, such as asking for light cheese on your pizza, or using less sauces for cooking or dipping. As for all you salad lovers, you might want to skip the croutons and fatty dressings on your salads, and choose oil and vinegar instead.

While some of these options sound less satisfying than smothering barbecue sauce on your chicken nuggets, or eating a hot basket of fries, they are better for your health and may cost you less at the end of the day. I mean, who do these restaurants think they are, charging people left and right for extra ranch? It’s not our fault it tastes good with everything.

Trick-or-Treat: The Best and Worst Halloween Candies [infographic]

November 1, 2014 |  by  |  Funny, Holiday, Lifestyle  |  No Comments

Why didn’t the skeleton go see the scary movie? Because he didn’t have the guts!! Okay, sorry… lame halloween joke. But, just like lame halloween jokes, year after year there are groups of lame homeowners who continue to give away lack-luster candy to trick-or-treaters.

Although I’ve been retired from the trick-or-treating game for a while (and I’m assuming, well hoping, that all of you have been too), I can still remember the utter confusion and sheer disappointment I felt after being handed a granola bar or a pack of Necco Wafers to drop into my pillow case on Halloween night. I mean, c’mon man, can I get a Snickers bar?! Those houses with “good” candy, though. They were a different story. Whether you had a house that gave away king-size candy bars or homemade s’mores, everyone can remember getting excited after going to that one house that gave away the most absurdly awesome Halloween treats. (We had a house that gave trick-or-treaters freshly grilled hotdogs… yes, hotdogs… it was awesome.)

Anyway, regardless of whether you choose to participate in Halloween festivities this year or not, I think we can all agree on one thing: bad candy sucks for everyone. A.) It kills the halloween spirit, and B.) What fun would it be to raid your kid’s Halloween basket only to find packets of raisins and stale Dubble Bubble chewing gum? The answer is none. Check out today’s infographic to compare the best and worst halloween candies.

Last Minute Halloween Costumes [infographic]

October 31, 2014 |  by  |  Holiday  |  No Comments

There’s that ol’ idiom that proves to never be entirely true, “There are two types of people: those who (blank) and those who (blank).” As deceptive as I’ve always found these statements to be because of their sweeping generalizations, the more I think about it, there’s a lot of them that apply to Halloween costumes.

I personally have pretty much always thrown something together last minute, soon after finding out there’s a costume party. Then there are those who premeditate on their costume well in advance, with the same kind of eager anticipation you find in people who start listening to Christmas music as soon as Halloween is over. I’m not even sure what would be the standard amount of time one should set aside to plan their costume, but I’ve never known anyone who started thinking about it at a time that seemed reasonable.

Usually, people go for one of two approaches. The first, being dressed in something that doesn’t use a lot of material and makes the opposite gender drool, the second is a costume that makes an allusion to something that person would consider part of their identity, i.e. the primary purpose is to express themselves. Then there are those who go for the most recognizable and relatable “I don’t want to spend all night being asked who I am” type of costumes versus the incredibly niche reference that’s so obscure not a single person guesses it, and the wearer goes home that night and sleeps soundly knowing how unique they are.

If you want to be judgmental about it, you probably could tell a lot about a person by the costume they picked. Whatever costume you decide to wear for Halloween this year, just be yourself! Or, uh.. yourself being not yourself. Does that make sense?

How Solar Panels Work [infographic]

October 30, 2014 |  by  |  Environmental, Lifestyle  |  No Comments

If there is one thing I hate about living in a 3-bedroom house, it’s the high cost of electricity. And although I don’t own my own home yet, I’ve always thought the idea of having solar panels was really cool. I even read an article yesterday discussing how solar panel prices are going down in the U.S., and may even become lower than electricity.

For those of you who aren’t quite sure what solar panels do, today’s handy infographic explains how they work. Essentially, the sun hits the solar panel cells and produces electricity, or solar power. The most important part of the solar panels is the silicon they’re made from. Without it, the panels could not produce electricity.

The science behind solar panels is amazing, and so are the benefits of using them for your home. Click the link or the infographic below to learn more.
