This ingenious image does a great job of explaining how genetics work...and making you crave gummy bears.

Speaking of a trillion...this fact is wild. Hyperinflation hit Zimbabwe so heavily in 2009 (inflation literally reached 230,000,000% that year!!!) that the country introduced a 100 TRILLION dollar bill...which was worth about 40 US cents.

This chart shows a trick for remembering how many days are in each month (the "knuckles" months are the ones with 31 days).

And being colorblind doesn't mean you see the world in black and white — it's that you have a narrower perception of color.

What you wear running or riding a bike at night makes a shockingly HUGE difference in how visible you are.

Living in a town that was obviously gerrymandered into its county I've known this for a while. You can easily look at a map and see just my town jut out into a different county, obviously someone at some point needed to win an election.

Learned this when my I did the grocery shopping for my grandmother, she had bologna cut on
number 7 on the list. The look I got from the guy at the deli counter was something else (it was like a half an inch thick).

#48 Interesting that socialism/communism killed a lot more people than the nazis. Yet it's still socially acceptable to support it.

Emanuel,

Technically it was the dictator that was responsible not the type of government much like you could say that Christianity is responsible for the deaths of millions when in fact it was just governments that happened to follow Christianity not the religion itself...

Dobbin,Yeah, most people don't understand this. They think a dictatorship is the definition for socialism, where in reality, there is no connection.

Lucinda,
Well I guess you didn't read what they said unless you agree that Christianity itself is to blame for all the atrocities perpetrated by "true believers" like the destruction of the native tribes in the New World by the Conquistadors or the Inquisition (just to list 2 examples both by the same country). By your "logic" we need to ban Christianity (and most other religions) since so much violence has been done by it's followers. The people are the problem not the belief...

Phil,
now you're just splitting hairs and presenting a strawman.

Dobbin,
So you're defending the nazis and the communist governments by saying that they also claimed to follow Christianity. That's your argument??

#32 how about not buying cakemix, but instead make your own. Cakemix usually is flour and some coagulants for 5 times the price of normal flour.

#1 if you need this chart you're probably too inbred to understand it (and to care).

#45 it simply means that many young people die in those red places. Typically high crime areas or dangerous traffic. It's like third world countries (or medieval times); as long as you get passed a certain age you'll probably live long, but child death rates pull the average way down.
