Home For The Holidays [infographic]

If you’re a broke college student like myself, then you understand that getting home for the holidays can be quite the hassle. If I was to drive home, it would take me somewhere around 9 hours to get there. Talk about a pain in the rear. I had always taken road trips with my family when I was younger (driving two adults and five children was always easier than flying everyone), and so it was always somewhat entertaining, but road tripping by yourself isn’t as exciting. Also, having a 1994 GMC Suburban, this broke college student would find himself absolutely impoverished after the 500 miles it would take to get home.

So this year, I am traveling by plane, which will cost Americans also using this form of transportation on average $450. Unfortunately, I won’t be traveling in an interesting manner like 2.4% of Americans who will travel by train, bus, or boat this holiday season. The good news is that I have a warm bed to sleep in at my parents house, free of charge. Which allows me to avoid the $204 average per night stay I’d have to pay if I was to stay in a hotel. Hopefully I won’t burden myself this Christmas via procreation like 9% of holiday travelers will; our walls are way too thin for that. Happy Holidays! [via]

Doggie Connections [Infographic]

As Doges have rampaged the internet this year, I thought it appropriate to have an infographic for all the doggies out there. Known commonly as “man’s best friend,” dogs have been perfect companions for humans over many centuries. They’re just so cute and lovable and OH MY GOD PUPPIES. HAVE YOU SEEN PUPPIES?! Whew, sorry, I get a little emotional about how awesome puppies are.

Anyways, lets not forget how much dogs love us! We give them food and play and walks and love so the relationship is mutual. I wonder if dogs bark about how man is “dog’s best friend”…

Now then, about this infographic: It seems that there has been some recent genetic evidence of dogs belonging to four distinct and different categories. These groups include wolf-like (with the closest genetically to wolves), herders (those who herd or either descend from herding dogs), hunters (breeds that were trained by humans in recent centuries), and mastiff-like (breeds that are often used as police and service dogs). Personally, I think this is a fun way to find out more about your dog and the lineage of the beasts we call friend.

How a Lethal Bacteria Kills [infographic]

I was in New York for 5 days last week, and 3 of those days were fair game — I had the option to do whatever I wanted in the city that everyone dreams of visiting. I did a lot of really fun things, but the one thing that was on top of my list was to visit the Museum of Natural History. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the museum 4 years ago as well, but boy is the museum so much more interesting and enjoyable when you have background knowledge of the exhibits! Visiting the museum was one of the highlights of my trip. I spent about 5 hours in there and only got through 3 exhibits. One of the most interesting exhibits though was about human origins. The exhibit had a really interesting video about Staph, and how a strain of it has evolved into MRSA. It was so interesting, I wanted to share an infographic about MRSA today. Read up and be sure to scrub yourself down after your workouts to avoid contracting MRSA! [via]

My Movie Moustache and Me [infographic]

“Is there a greater mark of a man’s character than a moustache?” According to today’s infographic, and apparently Ron Burgundy, there is not. Facial hair has been a symbol of manliness and style for centuries, and has graced some of the most famous faces on the silver screen (some animated, some not). Today’s infographic is dedicated to mustaches and those who wore them best.

There’s “The Burgundy,” a stache that resembles a furry caterpillar who crawled under one’s nose and fell asleep — this mustache is modeled after Will Ferrel’s character in the movie Anchorman, and more recently, Anchorman 2; there’s also “The Butcher,” a rather classical looking mustache that has become something of an icon, seen on everything, from mugs, to bandaids, and unfortunately index fingers; there’s even “The Lorax” a shaggy looking mustache that somehow imparts wisdom about the ways of the world and nature conservation; and of course “The Chaplin” a stache worn by one of the greatest entertainers in history (and sadly worn by the scariest dictator of all time, but we’re celebrating Charlie in this case) — don a bowler hat with this stache and you’ll be good to go.

How To Be More Creative [infographic]

I’m posting this infographic because my creativity was missing last month. And I wasn’t sure what to do about it. I would sit at my desk with every intention of writing brilliant things, but the words were dull and gave little light to brilliance.

I decided to hunt for it. I went on walks collecting sticks that I would later turn into magic wands. I set up a twenty-person tent in my front yard for my birthday party and themed it “the way you felt when you were read your favorite children’s book.” I watched Amelie and wondered what it would be like to stalk someone. I re-read all of 2013′s journal entries (miserably inspirational). I read books of course. I started writing quotes on a little white board that sits above my desk. I lit a lot of candles. I eavesdropped. It worked. So here you have it, an infographic on harnessing creativity, in case you too have misplaced your creative side. [via]
