Information is very powerful but for the most bit it is bland and unimaginative. Infographics channel information in a visually pleasing, instantly understandable manner, making it not only powerful, but extremely beautiful. Once used predominantly to make maps more approachable, scientific charts less daunting and as key learning tools for children, inforgraphics have now permeated all aspects of the modern world. I designed a couple of infographics back in college, the need arising especially around the time Soccer World Cup fever spiked.

In order to start the week off right, I thought I would share an infographic very appropriate for a Monday, one entitled “16 Things You Didn’t Know About Sleep.” As I write this I think about how amazing sleep is and of those mornings when sleep is just too appealing to pass up.

Sleeping works better than any medicine or home remedy, sleeping is the cure-all. Whether you are recovering from activities done the night/day before or recovering from an illness, or perhaps you have 15 fifteen minutes in between classes, in all cases sleep is the answer.

My friends and I are self-professed grammar geeks. Upon hearing Alanis Morissette’s 90s hit “Ironic” on the radio, a worn out discussion usually breaks out: is she using the word “ironic” correctly? Yes, you can roll your eyes now. But, seriously, “It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife” is not really ironic, is it? (And I know that this discussion is more worn out than your favorite gym shorts…) Today’s infographic supports my argument, but it also schools me against using “literally” as an emphatic “really,” and reminds me that politely chuckling does not a bemused person make.
Our language is constantly being shaped by a number of different influences, from social media and pop culture to other languages and even human error. Thanks to the ever-evolving Internet, new words enter our language almost daily. But beyond new words, technology has had a big impact on the ways in which we communicate, particularly with respect to how many words it takes us to get our point across.

15% of people are left handed. I always thought this number was higher — and according to some of my left handed friends and family, also smarter? Well, according to this infographic, they are also more likely to become alcoholics — so I guess that’s a fair trade-off. If only 15% of people are left handed, think about the market that exists for left handed folks. Left-handed scissors, golf clubs, and potato knives. I’d be interested in finding out how much companies like, Taylor Made, allocate to left handed product development. Left Handed Facts 7 Stats
