These Easy To Read Pie Charts Reveal The Differences Between Men And Women

There have been many books written about the differences between men and women, but these books take way too long to read.

There have also been many instructional videos created that illustrate the differences between the sexes, but who has time to watch ten minutes worth of commercials for a two minute long explanation?

Nobody does, so when we want to know the difference between men and women we want to know it fast and in a format that's easy to read, like a pie chart.

Pie charts are easy to read, and they make us hungry for a slice of pie with a side of knowledge, so check out these pie charts created by Brightside and you'll become an expert in the differences between men and women in no time!

Watch 245 People Jump Off A Bridge

Relax, they were secured with ropes. Rope swings, actually. In October, 245 people attempted to break a Guinness World Record by going on a simultaneous tandem swing off a 98-foot bridge in Hortolandia, Brazil.  

(YouTube link)

Guinness has yet to certify whether these folks broke the previous record (which was also set by Brazilians), but a good time was had by all. You can see the jump from the vantage point of the bridge and also from a swinger's GoPro at Atlas Obscura.

Redditors Share Their "They Were Attractive Until..." Stories About People They've Dated

Don't let people who claim they don't care about looks fool you- good looking people get all the breaks in life, and the lovelorn will often go to extremes to make an impression on someone they find physically attractive.

He took his shirt off, and he had a tattoo of a tarantula on his abdomen.

I have severe arachnophobia.

It was a bad night for both of us.   -via choixpeau

And yet there are limits to a person's attractiveness, limits usually reached when a hottie does or says something horrendous, and once the smitten party reaches their limit they discover pretty people can turn ugly in a flash.

She was attractive until I went to her house.

I was seeing this girl for a couple of weeks, and it seemed like we were hitting it off. She was witty, pretty, and seemed genuinely nice. On our third date, she invites me back to her place, and I agree because duh.

We walk up her driveway, and as she's unlocking the door, she mentions that her house is "a little messy." So I'm expecting a place that looks actually lived in. I grew up in a pretty messy house, so I tell her not to worry, I'm sure it's fine.

She opens up the door, turns on the light, and what I see next will haunt me for the rest of my life. She was one of the worst hoarders I've ever seen. Wall to wall stacks of flattened cardboard boxes and other useless s#%t, with just a narrow pathway zigzagging through the living room. The walls looked like someone smeared a lasagna all over it several times and just let it dry. The carpet squished as I stepped inside. God only knows what that mystery liquid was. And the smell? Oh god, the smell. My sense of smell is usually pretty weak. I pretty much have to rub things in my nostrils to smell something, but I could smell her house. I could REALLY smell it, and suddenly I was really glad I normally can't smell things. I'm fairly certain some poor animal had died somewhere in the house.

I immediately turned around and noped outta there.    -via quiet_neighbor_kid

Sometimes this change of heart comes when the person says something stupid or acts like a jerk, other times things turn ugly when you finally go to their house for the first time. But worst of all are the fine looking folks who try to control you after just a few dates:

Started dating a guy and the first couple of dates were perfect. Third date he picks me up from my place, I was wearing a dress that was about two inches above knee length. Two minutes later he comments that it would've been more decent if my dress was knee-length and that he "would've demanded that I go back and change it if we were deeper into the relationship". I say "you know what, take me back home". His face lights up as he turns and starts driving back thinking I will be changing the dress.

As we arrive at my place I leave the car and tell him he can keep himself company for the rest of the night.

I Left the passenger's door open.    -via onebanginusernamepls

The History of American Spy Agencies

The following article is from Uncle John’s Factastic Bathroom Reader.

Question: How many intelligence agencies does the U.S. have? Let’s see…there’s the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, and maybe…the DEA—that’s four, right? Wrong. How many do we really have? NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS! Just kidding. Correct answer: 17. Here’s the history of the whole—mostly secret—business.

SPY STORY

In January 1790, President George Washington, in his first State of the Union address, asked Congress for funding for foreign intelligence gathering. The president wanted to ward off any foreign threats against the new nation by learning about them before they could come to fruition. Congress approved Washington’s request and established the Contingent Fund of Foreign Intercourse, more commonly known as the Secret Service Fund. Amount of money appropriated for the fund: $40,000 per year, which the president could use at his own discretion with virtually no oversight. (That set the foundation for future problems between the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government over intelligence matters—problems that have existed ever since.) Within just three years, the fund had grown to $1 million a year. Funding for U.S. intelligence operations today is about $70 billion a year. (That we know of, anyway.)

Here’s a brief look at how we got here.

Photoshoppers Turn Rock Climbers Into Worshippers Of Stone

It's not a stretch to think of rock climbers as worshippers of nature, scaling the Earth's exposed bones to show their reverence for the mineral gods, but they usually don't show their reverence for stone in an obvious way.

But thanks to the power of Photoshop and the Instagram account @allmightystone the rock climbers of the world can now show their reverence for rocks the old fashioned way- by worshiping them like the ancient people did.

Remove the rocks from underneath their outstretched arms and you've got a bunch of guys and gals who are praising the natural gods the old fashioned way, minus all the sacrificial offerings and fire.

Futuristic Telepathic Alien - Mankind's Strange Future


Futuristic Telepathic Alien by Bill Alger

According to this artwork, which was torn straight from a textbook from the year 3000, human beings will possess telepathic powers in the future thanks to the integration of alien DNA- and we'll end up looking super weird because of it. As you can see it's a bit of a trade-off, since the way we look now is much more acceptable in human society than looking like a fetal monkey-lizard hybrid, but having awesome psychic powers that allow us to float through space unharmed would be super cool. So whaddya think? Are you gonna sign up for the xeno-geno therapy when it's offered, or are you going to head underground with the rest of the hairless apes?

Prepare humanity for our strange future with this Futuristic Telepathic Alien t-shirt by Bill Alger, it's the far out way to say "hey, that might be us someday!"

9 Vintage Thanksgiving Side Dishes We Shouldn’t Bring Back

On the menus of Thanksgiving feasts of the past are some items that were once considered traditional, yet are almost gone today. Honestly, I dropped cranberry sauce completely for a few years until I discovered a recipe that uses pineapple and walnuts. You should serve what people like. The unfortunate recipes that have disappeared from Thanksgiving include creamed onions, winter corn, and various mid-century Jell-O based recipes, like Jellied Turkey-Vegetable Salad.

There’s only one way to improve a dish as alluring as Jellied Turkey-Vegetable Salad, and that’s to stick it in the freezer. From the sound of the recipe—which combines cream of celery soup, salad dressing, diced turkey, vegetables, and gelatin—this is basically the inside of a turkey pot pie if it was served frozen. And also if it was square.

That recipe is here if you want to try it, or just read about it. The list of regrettable Thanksgiving side dishes is at Mental Floss.

Woman Captures Hilarious Image Of Plumber Going To Great Lengths To Fix A Pipe

(Image Link)

Plumbers are often stereotyped as being greedy and lazy, charging a fortune for a half-assed fixit job they know they'll have to come back to actually finish repairing.

But while there are a few bad apples out there underworking and overcharging most plumbers I've met take pride in their work and want to get the job done right the first time- no matter how hard they have to work.

(Image Link)

When Acton Municipal Utility District worker Jimmie Cox showed up at the home of Andrea Adams and found her front lawn turning into a swamp thanks to a burst water line he decided it was time to take drastic action to stop the leak.

So he dived headfirst into the mudhole, proving some plumbers are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to help out a homeowner in need.

“The hole was about five-and-a-half foot deep. There was a lady running around,” Cox told local news station WFAA.

The photo even caught the attention of Mr. Dirty Jobs himself Mike Rowe, who had nothing but praise for the brave plumber:

It's Open to Debate

Why debate when you can destroy? Socrates, a 5th-century BC philosopher, and Neitzsche, the 19th-century polymath, play the dozens to the best of their ability. Socrates makes a good point, but Neitzsche has a couple thousand years of insult evolution on his side. Now, the development of insults does not mean they become more refined. It's just that they became more personal. Why insult the man when you can insult his mother? This is the latest comic from Jake Likes Onions.

Is a Cat a Liquid?

French physicist Marc-Antoine Fardin was awarded an Ig Nobel Prize a couple of months ago for his groundbreaking research in rheology, which is the study of how matter flows and deforms. One of the problems in rheology is the definition of terms. The definition we learn in school is that a liquid is the state of matter that takes the shape of its container, but not the volume. The definition is further refined for scientists.

At the center of the definition of a liquid is an action: A material must be able to modify its form to fit within a container. The action must also have a characteristic duration. In rheology, this is called the relaxation time. Determining if something is liquid depends on whether it’s observed over a time period that’s shorter or longer than the relaxation time.

If we take cats as our example, the fact is that they can adapt their shape to their containers if we give them enough time. Cats are thus liquid if we give them the time to become liquid. In rheology, the state of a material is not really a fixed property—what must be measured is the relaxation time. What is its value, and on what does it depend? For example, does the relaxation time of a cat vary with its age? (In rheology, we speak of thixotropy.)

The whole point of the article that won the award, "On the Rheology of Cats," (found in this journal) is that if cats can fit into the scientific definition of a liquid, then maybe most of us don't know enough about the states of matter. Fardin gives us non-physicists a short course in rheology, specifically a breakdown of the ideas and terms that went into the paper at Slate.

You can see more photographic evidence in a gallery at Bored Panda.

The Gamers You'll Meet In 2017

These days gamers come from all walks of life, from the stuffy suits of the business world to the jobless slackers who live in their parents' basement, and yet according to this JHALL comic they can still be categorized by gaming style.

The Nintendads choose speed and substance over flash, posting their dope speed runs on Facebook where nobody cares, while the Hipsters think they're changing the virtual world by making games reflect their "unique style".

They care way too much about style for their games to ever have any substance, and yet our morbid curiosity makes us want to see what they come up with next.

The Mobile Minecraft Minors are the newest breed of gamer, and yet they manage to log so many hours on their parents' tablets and smartphones they'll need their own data plan before kindergarten.

Assyrian Cuniform Prenup Addresses Infertility and Surrogacy

A 4000-year-old Assyrian clay tablet found at an archeological dig in Turkey has been translated as a marriage contract. Some terms are spelled out quite explicitly, particularly what would happen if the wife doesn't produce a child.

The contract, written in Old Assyrian and signed before four witnesses, stipulates that the wife in question was to hire a hierodule, or female slave, to serve as a surrogate mother if the couple failed to conceive a baby two years from the wedding date. It also specifies that the husband could not marry another woman—Mesopotamians were monogamous—and that if one of them opted for divorce, he or she would owe the other five minas of silver (more than five pounds, or about $1,500 worth, at press time).

While the idea that either party could initiate divorce proceedings seems downright modern, the prenuptial agreement doesn't appear to stipulate what procedures would come into play if the slave also did not produce a child. Maybe the possibility of male infertility was unthinkable, or more likely, the child would only be considered part of the family if he/she were produced by the father. Read more about the marriage contract at Atlas Obscura.

The 35-Year-Old British Man Who Fashions His Entire Life Around The Year 1946

When modern times just don't hold as much appeal as the past people go retro in both style of dress and interests, traveling back in time in their minds while their body is stuck in the here and now.

Some choose to dress of an era, others collect things from their favorite time period, but 35-year-old Ben Sansum of Cambridgeshire, England has chosen to completely immerse himself in the year 1946.

(YouTube Link)

This BBC News documentary is from 2014, so if you're wondering whether Ben still maintains his 40s vibe you can see in this photo gallery from BBC Radio 4 that he's gone a bit more casual with his look but is still stuck squarely in the 40s.

Every State, Ranked by Its Food

Here's a state ranking that guaranteed to cause offense and arguments. Thrillist employed a mysterious panel of judges (described as "omnivorous") to eat their way through state cuisines. They don't reveal their methodology, although locally grown crops and products like wine and whiskey are factored in. The rankings will only surprise you for certain places you feel strongly about, such as your home state. Kentucky didn't make the top half, but it also didn't make the bottom ten, as it usually does in state rankings. And I thought Louisiana was robbed. However, you learn some details about the states along the way.

37. Arizona

Allegedly inventing the chimichanga by deep-frying a burrito definitely counts for something, and we're insanely fixated on Pizzeria Bianco. But it's hard to get excited about all those chains dotting the scorched landscape. If you happen to be elderly, advance this ranking seven spots up the list. If you happen to be a minority, drop Arizona 13 spots.

36. Indiana

Indianapolis has come a long way in recent years, with establishments like the universally beloved Milktooth injecting some life into a far too chain-dominant dining scene. And when you're outside Indy, keep your eyes peeled for some sugar cream pie. Maybe skip the fried brain sandwich.

Check out the entire ranking at Thrillist. -via Digg

The Look of the 13th Doctor

Jodie Whittaker will portray the 13th incarnation of the Doctor when the TV series Doctor Who returns. The first woman Doctor is under a lot of pressure to live up to fans' expectations, so costume designer Ray Holman knew he had to get the look just right. To do that, he referenced past Doctors and incorporated details from many of them into the new costume. Also, one cannot help but imagine that he put some thought into how cosplayers will study each detail to recreate them themselves. Holman also designed the dress of Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi's characters. Fans have a mixed reaction, with many pointing out that the rainbow stripe reminds them either of Mork from Ork (Mork and Mindy) or Wesley Crusher (Star Trek: The Next Generation). Metafilter has a roundup of reviews of the new costume. Jody Whittaker's debut on Doctor Who is expected to happen during a special broadcast on Christmas Day, with the series returning sometime in 2018.

Miniature Food Critic

Everyone's a critic, and every parent has had to deal with children who have a problem with what you serve them to eat. Imagine how harsh they would be with an adult's vocabulary combined with their immature social filter! Well, you don't have to imagine, because that's exactly what this video is. Or else these little girls have been watching too much Gordon Ramsay.

Your Soul Is Mine - Is Your Head Half Empty Or Half Full?

5 Famous News Stories You Didn't Know Had Insane Epilogues

We get the big stories in our news, but they fade from the headlines eventually. That doesn't mean it's over for the people involved, it just means that the media has moved on to the next big story. You might recall the Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko, who was a former KGB agent and a critic of the Kremlin. He was murdered slowly and painfully in Britain by drinking a cup of tea laced with radioactive polonium in 2006. But you don't know what happened to his body after he died. It was so radioactive that they left it alone, hooked up to medical monitors for two days while arrangements were made to move him safely.

The actual autopsy took place on December 1 at London's Royal Hospital. This time, the crew included Dr. Cary, another pathologist, a cop, a photographer, and a dude whose sole function was to wipe all errant blood drops from people's clothes, lest they become polonized. Nearby, an ambulance staff was watching over them in case someone fainted or collapsed. Everyone was wearing the same two-suit getup as Cary, complete with custom battery-powered, air-circulating hoods. If Litvinenko had against all odds opened his eyes, he'd have thought he'd been abducted by a bunch of extremely nervous aliens.

The story is longer and more involved, as are the four other stories in which the aftermath of a big news story is as interesting as what we already know. Read them all at Cracked. No, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is not included.

You Did Not Sleep There

Talk about a Labor Day.. #youdidnotsleepthere • photo @evanskoczenski

A post shared by @youdidnotsleepthere on Sep 7, 2016 at 7:05pm PDT

Luisa Jeffery likes to camp out, and when she does, it's usually in the back of her Toyota truck. Jeffery noticed the glut of adventure camping photographs on Instagram that are so perfect they appear to be staged or even Photoshopped. Yeah, that's the trend for just about any facet of life, as people go to great lengths to take the perfect picture of their vacation, their clothing, or their food. Jeffery started an Instagram gallery called youdidnotsleepthere, reposting the most egregious examples of illogical campsites.

I call this one "The Influencer". #youdidnotsleepthere • photo @jeffjohnson_beyondandback

A post shared by @youdidnotsleepthere on Mar 18, 2017 at 6:50pm PDT

National Geographic saw that Jeffery's work was relevant to their interests, and did an interview with her about the trend in faking the perfect Instagram picture.

Random Commenter

Our mothers told us, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything." Socrates (and a lot of other people) said, "Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?" In the radio business, I was told, "What you don't say can't hurt you." That's all true, except that if you say nothing at all, you aren't going to get far in radio. But a little thinking before you say something goes a long way, and saying something nice can make someone else's day go much better. This is the latest comic from Lunarbaboon.

Famous Chefs Reveal The Foods They Refuse To Eat

(Image Link)

It's only natural for chefs to have a very clear sense of which foods they like and which ones they can't stand, since they're exposed to all kinds of different foods while working in restaurant kitchens.

Joy Wilson aka Joy the Baker is, well, a baker so she hasn't really worked around weird foods like octopus and squid, which is just fine by her since she can't stand eating any kind of cephalopod.

Gordon Ramsay has a discriminating sense of taste so his won't eat food isn't a specific ingredient as much as a meal served in a certain locale- Gordon will not eat airplane food.

And celeb chef Rachel Ray has a certain food product she abhors that may seem odd to some- she hates mayo. Rachel dislikes the condiment so much she's a lifelong member of the I Hate Mayonnaise Club.

How To Tell Whether You Have Angst, Ennui Or Weltschmerz

Tis the season for SAD to creep into our minds and give us a serious case of the winter blues, SAD as in Seasonal Affective Disorder, and this winter is looking to be bleaker and more angst-inducing than ever.

Now before you start waxing poetic in your journal about the existential angst chilling you to the bone you should figure out whether you're actually suffering from angst, ennui or a bad case of weltschmerz.

Mental Floss' Arika Okrent explores the origin and meaning of these words at length in this article, but we'll just share the short versions here. Let's start with Angst:

Are you dissatisfied and worried in an introspective, overthinking German way? You’ve got angst.

Now for the most emo of the three, Ennui:

Are you tired, so tired of everything about the world and the way it is? Do you proclaim this, with a long, slow sigh, to everyone around you? You’ve got ennui.

(Image Link)

And finally we come to the one that sounds both sad and phlegmy- Weltschmerz:

Do you have sadness in your heart for the world that can never be and sensible shoes? You’ve got weltschmerz.

11 Things You Might Not Know About the Marine Corps

Today is Veterans Day, and yesterday the United State Marine Corps celebrated its 242nd birthday. That makes this weekend the perfect time to learn something we didn't already know about the Marines. For example, if you are old enough to have attended an American elementary school back when they had regular music class, you know the lyrics to the Marines' Hymn -at least the first verse. But what do they mean?  

2. THE MARINES'S HYMN REFERS TO THE BATTLE OF CHAPULTEPEC.

The Marines’ Hymn famously begins, “From the Halls of Montezuma...” This refers to the Battle of Chapultepec in 1847, in which U.S. Marines conquered Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City and subsequently occupied the city as part of the Mexican-American War. The battle is also famous (according to Marine tradition) for the establishment of the “blood stripe,” a red stripe sewn into the trousers of the uniform commemorating the Marines killed at Chapultepec.

3. "THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI" IS A REFERENCE TO THE FIRST OVERSEAS LAND BATTLE FOUGHT BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY.

In 1801, the United States decided to do something about piracy in the Mediterranean so President Jefferson sent in the Navy. In 1805, the Marines finished the job. The Battle of Derne, on the shores of Tripoli during the First Barbary War, was the decisive action of the war, and the first overseas land battle fought by the United States military.

Weaknesses

I don't get why employers still ask applicants what their weaknesses are, since applicants always lie when asked this question.

Employers claim it gives them insight into how an employee's mind works, but asking about a their weaknesses just makes you sound like a cheesy supervillain out to defeat the heroic applicant who lacks the "plenty of money" super power.

If you need a job then keep telling interviewers your weaknesses are you can't bring yourself to take vacations and you're a perfectionist, but as this Mr. Lovenstein comic shows only say you have no weaknesses if you're bulletproof.

Face Transplant Recipient Meets Donor's Widow

Imagine the emotions you'd experience if you had a chance to see your deceased spouse's face on someone else. That's what happened to Lillian Ross. Her husband, Calen "Rudy" Ross, died last year, and was a designated organ donor. The staff at the Mayo Clinic approached Lillian about using Rudy's face for a patient who was awaiting a face transplant. The clinic team had been practicing for their first face transplant for more than three years. Andrew Sandness received a new face, including facial bones and teeth from Rudy, after ten years of living with profound disfigurement. The surgery required nine surgeons, a crew of 40 medical professionals, and 56 hours. After months of recovery and therapy, Sandness was able to greet Lillian Ross and express his appreciation.    

(YouTube link)

The not-so-warm-and-fuzzy side of the story is that both Sandness and Ross were victims of suicide. Ross left Lillian a pregnant, 19-year-old widow. Sandness, on the other hand, got a second chance at life twice. Five other people also received various organs from Ross. -via Laughing Squid

Useful Military Hand Signals For Checking On A Sleeping Baby

Having just welcomed my first child I am now in the process of figuring out how to live my TV and music lovin' life with a newborn baby around, a baby that is a mere five days old yet somehow knows our voices well.

My exhausted wife needs sleep and so does our little baby boy, and yet if he hears our voices he wakes up and starts crying, wanting his parents to hold him once again.

While looking for a method of communicating non-verbally we came across this super badass chart created by How To Be A Dad that taught us military hand signals we can use while our little man is sleeping.

We've already used the "Oh god it smells awful!" and "I will throat punch you!" ones a lot...

Hedonist Hollywood’s Lost Garden of Allah

Scandalous behavior in early Hollywood found a place to happen behind walls and away from the press, fans, and families. Silent film star Alla Nazimova converted the home she bought in 1919 into a hotel that became a retreat and party place for Hollywood's elite. The Garden of Allah was a legendary complex in West Hollywood with rooms and cottages for rent nightly, weekly, or permanently. It also had a huge pool to draw tenants together for cocktail parties and skinny-dipping.

Some stayed in between films, some stayed in between marriages– like Humphrey Bogart, who was once attacked with a kitchen knife in his Garden villa by his estranged wife, who had found him living there with Lauren Bacall. Fellow residents gathered around the house to watch the scene as Bacall escaped out the back door.

There was never a dull moment at the Garden. “It Girl” Clara Bow was notorious for pushing hotel butlers off the diving boards and management looked the other way while the original Tarzan actor was said to have satisfied his numerous “Janes” in the hotel pool. One famous Broadway actress answered her bungalow door naked while her pet monkey collected telegrams from startled delivery boys. An inebriated American comedian and writer, Robert Benchley, would often have himself moved in a wheelbarrow between the villas’ endless parties.

A Who's Who of Hollywood actors, musicians, and literary figures found refuge and creative inspiration at the Garden of Allah, but they also found sex, drugs, and alcohol in abundance. This lasted until 1959, when the hotel hosted a huge party just before it was demolished. Read about the heyday of the Garden of Allah at Messy Nessy Chic.

This GoPro Camera Was Covered In Lava And Burst Into Flames - And Survived

GoPro cameras totally changed the POV game because they're ultra light, ultra portable and ultra durable yet still deliver hi-def footage and sound, making them the ultimate way to shoot POV footage no matter how extreme the sport.

To illustrate how durable these mini-cams really are let's take a look at a GoPro owned by Erik Storm, owner and lead guide of Kilauea EcoGuides in Hawaii.

Erik took his GoPro with him everywhere he went until about 16 months ago when he set it in a crack to film lava flows- and the lava engulfed the camera:

“I was telling a story when the molten lava completely engulfed my GoPro (with housing on) and it caught on fire,” Storm tells PetaPixel. “I used a geology rock hammer to pull it out of the lava and thought it was a total loss.

After getting back home, Storm hammered the cooled rock off the GoPro housing. He suddenly noticed that the Wi-Fi light on the camera within was still blinking.

When he pulled the SD card out of the camera, he found that the footage was still intact. The last video on it shows the camera getting engulfed by lava and flames bursting into view.

“The camera even still worked although not a well as it did before,” Storm says. “Truly amazing it survived!”
