Mortgage Pre-Approval 101 [infographic]

The housing market is coming back, and in some places its coming back fast! Here in Austin we have some of the fastest growing markets. We’re talking about some houses almost doubling in value over just the last five years. The market is getting so intense that some houses will have offers within hours of listing. No viewing, and without even seeing pictures. If you’re in a fast-paced housing area like me, or just looking to buy a house anywhere – a pre-approved mortgage can give you the head start you need.

A mortgage pre-approval is a note from a lender stating that you would qualify for a certain loan amount. House hunters like my brother take note: there are four key reasons to get a pre-approved mortgage. You will know your borrowing limits, prove to sellers your status as a credible buyer, help avoid lending surprising down the road and lastly you’ll speed up the buying process (if pre-approval is required). Like I said before, cities like Austin have houses selling extreamly fast and every day counts before the contract is signed. Do your research, get pre-approved and be ready for your dream home.

The Many Varieties Of Whiskey [infographic]

If you saw my last post, then this one probably looks familiar. I mentioned that we all probably have our embarrassing stories about our first encounters with beer, but after seeing this infographic I realized that whiskey is truly where the best humiliating narratives are tucked away.

I won’t get too much into the hairy details, but just know that somewhere there is a landfill full of flip phones with pictures of me covered in mud passed out on a tractor while cradling a handle of Evan Williams after junior prom. At that point some guy apparently swiped the bottle from me to share with his teammates on a golf trip the following day. They all got suspended due to ending up in a very similar state as me but with a lot more vomiting involved. That is the very definition of justice. I don’t know if there’s really a winner in this situation though considering that we all went out of our way to break the law only to accomplish nothing more than to make complete asses out of ourselves. At least it was fun, supposedly. Honestly I don’t remember.

Battle Of The Sexes [Infographic]

You can tell a lot about a person by their web activity. That’s a given. But, what can web activity say about the differences and similarities between men and women? This is a question today’s infographic attempts to answer.

Overall women tend to make online privacy a higher priority than men, while men tend to post more embarrassing things that they will later regret on social media sites. This isn’t so surprising- I think generaly women tend to be a little more guarded, whereas men are more likely to make asses of themselves. To test this theory, go to a bar and observe drinking habits of men and women. There will probaby be more women sipping cocktails, and more men pounding their 13th beer of the night (maybe some fist-pumping involved) at some point, you will at least think to yourself, “Wow, that guy is a douche-bag.”.

What I found very interesting is that there are more female online gamers (55 percent) than men. This is a statistic that I really wish I would have been aware of in high school- but I guess it’s never too late to get back into Starcraft Online.

There are many more intriguing statistics on men, women, and their respective web activity nestled away in this infographic. Give it a read and see for yourself. [Via]

The Magnificent Multitude Of Beer [infographic]

If you’re anything like me then your first experiences with beer was probably an American lager. To be more specific you were probably trying to force down some warm Keystone next to your classmate’s pool while their parents were out of town. If you’re anything like me then you probably see your high school self as some absurd caricature of embarrassment. Maybe American brewing will never be taken seriously. At least it’s appropriate in the sense that it’s hard to take yourself seriously when you can’t recall any memory where a case of light beer was present.

Some people find that an ice cold Natty still gets the job done while others have become full fledged beer snobs. Either way there’s something to learn for even the most knowledgable beer drinker from this infographic. Be sure to take this information and use it wisely however. Nobody likes the guy who won’t shut up about his imperial stout, but nobody likes that dude who’s running around the party wearing the empty cardboard that once housed twentyfour blue and silver cans on his head either. There’s a time to kick back and indulge in a microbrew and there’s time when you need utility in a can because you’ve just got to rage. All things in moderation.

Dog World Records [Infographic]

April 30, 2014 |  by  |  Animals, Mind-Blowing  |  1 Comment

You know what I like about dogs? Everything. Dogs are the most innocent, and pure creatures on this planet. Even when a dog poops inside, it does so out of love- in a way that we humans cannot even begin to understand. You’ve got to love dogs- if you don’t I’m pretty sure you’re a serial killer or something.

Anyway- what could be even greater than dogs? There are many answers: hugging a dog, petting a dog, and giving a dog peanut butter. But there is one answer that is better than the rest- a piece of gold that stands out amongst the silver. That is World Records… by dogs! Dog World Records. If there were a Guinness Book of Dog World Records, I would read that book over and over again, and throw down at least $39.95 for it.

There are so many things that certain dogs have been the best at among dogs! For instance: Brandy, a Boxer from the good ol’ USA had the longest tongue ever at 43cm, that’s over a foot! The tallest dog ever was none other than Giant George, a Great Dane also from the United States. There are dozens of dogs that have earned the right to carve their names into the Milkbone Cathedral (that’s not a real thing but I’m making it one as soon as I have the money). Read today’s infographic and learn about the greatest canines in the world. [Via]
