What if the Gods were on Facebook ?

[tweetmeme] These days everyone is on Facebook, young and old. I guess someone thought that it might be a very good Idea to make the Facebook Page with the updates of Ramayan and Mahabharatha. Interestingly, when snooping around I found some more. I have just added these that I found. I think it is hilarious. All this after I first received Ramayan on Facebook by Anup. Thanks Dude ! Click on the images below to see them full size.

Dirty Facts … Some dirty infographics

[tweetmeme] Infographics are awesome, representing complicated information with just a few graphical representations. There are so many infographics online and there are lists of great infographics, all over the internet. But some designers are taking this a little too far, hilariously far. Imagine preparing an infographic for flatulance or poop for that matter. Well, interestingly I am presenting them here on my blog.

Lets start with a personal favorite : Using BIC pens to explain mostly everyone’s sexual orientation.

The Human Footprint … Alarm !

Lately I have been organizing my computer, and the past couple of days have been dedicated to Bookmarks. While I was doing so, I came across a bookmark that I had placed for a page on neatorama.  Neatorama had a post about the Human foot print, It listed out sort of all the various consumables that we would go through in our life. Of course it is completely from the American perspective, like most of the Internet. However, it gives an idea of the consumables that we would go through our life. Check out the infographic below.
