Over the last 50 years turkeys have been selectively bred so that they are now 50% heavier than in 1966 and 100% heavier than in 1930!!!

Today’s infographic, created all the way back in 1931 by a man named John B. Sparks, maps the ebb and flow of global power going all the way back to 2,000 B.C. on one coherent timeline.

Here's a nifty graphic showing, in various cities, the change in average annual hours stuck in traffic per auto commuter over 28 years. The different colored lines represent a handful of major metropolitan areas in the United States. Cheery stuff, this...

[Image: SBR0102-Data2-Graphic1.gif]

This is a bit of the abstract:

"Congestion grew steadily from 1982 to 2007 in all but a handful of the largest 97 metro areas; a notable exception is Los Angeles, where the average commuter was already spending 76 hours stuck in traffic in 1990. The numbers dropped in almost all metro areas with the onset of the recession in 2008 but have since crept up. Telecommuting or using flexible hours to avoid these delays offers the possibility of increased productivity and greater reliability for workers picking up children from daycare or school."

“Look at what they abandoned in their panic... they were afraid; ashamed. They chose to conceal it, to bury the roots of a Great Civilization. They turned their backs on what science had to offer them, and tried to shut the lid of the Pandora's Box they themselves had opened.”

Katsuhiro Ôtomo, (Akira, 1988)

The Big Mac Index

Using the US as a baseline for the cost of a Big Mac, how do other countries compare? Head to Russia, see the sights and have a cheap Биг Мак.

Animated infographic on human population since 1 AD. By the end, the dots representing 1M people appear like fireworks! The only times population declined were during the bubonic plagues and the world wars.

RE: Charts & Graphs
I've seen that one before. I like watching those little explosions you get in certain areas, plus the cumulative effect you get of a large population begetting an even larger one. The annotations are helpful, too.
