In almost any given form of media one will probably run across some form of advertisement. Ads are on social media, they saturate television and the Internet and they show up in movies as well, so with all of the ads that we see every day the question needs to be asked: does anyone really believe what they see in big-name advertisements? According to a study by market researchers Lab42, the answer is no. Among the 500 participants surveyed, only 3% believed that the information given by advertisements was “very accurate,” while 57% believed that the ads were “somewhat exaggerated.”
Today’s infographic from Mashable.com shows consumer reception of ads, and people seem to be less than impressed. Out of those surveyed, 87% thought that cleaning ads were photoshopped, while 96% thought that weight-loss ads were photoshopped. The most important factor in making an ad memorable, it seems, is making it funny since 73% said that funny ads made them more memorable (and more likely to buy the product).

Working with kids, poop is a word that is unarguably in my vocabulary. It’s also something I feel should be able to be discussed more in our culture, no matter one’s sex and/or gender. Today’s infographic tells you some things to look out for as well as some fun facts about our favorite four-letter palindrome.
The infographic’s connections with history and nature make it that much cooler. I definitely didn’t know that some battles during WWII might have been decided because of some “dung” mischievously planted by the British. So awesome. And the fact about the breadth of elephants’ stool makes us realize what tiny creatures we are, as they can loose a child’s worth of bowels per day.
So, we should not be afraid of the things we release from our bodies, instead let us see the beauty in poop. We are, in fact, animals and should not try to disguise ourselves as otherwise. But, since we have not developed with nature, some of our diet might not make sense to our bodies that work oh so hard to keep us going. Watch out for all the crazy-colored ones, y’all and let this Sunday be the most fun of them all! [via]

Quack y’all, ducks are crazy! There is no better infographic for a Saturday afternoon than one strictly about ducks. I have expanded my duck knowledge quite a bit today and I really think you will benefit from said knowledge as well.
Do all you guys know of that show that’s called Duck Masters or something and these millionaire hicks do whatever they want? Well none of that bullshit will be in today’s infographic. It is exclusively duck facts and even a little bit of humor (make sure to check out the graph showing duck existence on earth).
Well I’m going to shut up and let your mind be blown. Long live ducks! [Via]Share This Infographic
Did you know pornography has been the most dominate use of the internet since its inception until very recently? Social Networking has finally passed pornography as society’s internet habit. After viewing today’s infographic, that information will not seem possible.
Online pornography is a multibillion dollar industry where every second over 3000 dollars are spent and almost 30,000 people are fapping. Those are astounding numbers and the profits of the pornographic firms only prove those points more.
I don’t think porn is going anywhere. Unless someone shuts down the internet, pornography will continue to be an online powerhouse. [Via]Share This Infographic
It’s a brand new baby year, and I know losing weight is at the top of everyone’s New Year’s resolutions. I’m sure only about half of this resolution gets fulfilled, therefore, I propose that people try to to focus on becoming healthier instead of focusing on the scale. Focusing on a better lifestyle will lead to a better, happier self, and some pounds will come off as well. Another perk of living a healthier lifestyle is avoiding the dreaded diabetes.
Diabetes caused by obesity can be cured with healthy meal choices and exercise. I’ve seen the healthy lifestyle miracle work in my family, when the diabetes magically left my overweight uncle. So ya’ll, instead of being discouraged by the scale this new year, focus of becoming healthy. It’s a great way to start off your New Years Resolution! [via]Share This Infographic
