What Does Your Car Say About You?

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

The question I’m asked most in my life is ‘What is wrong with you?’ the second question most asked is ‘No, really, what is wrong with you?’ I’m asked it all the time by family members, strangers, passing motorists and, for some reason, traffic wardens. Maybe it’s my headgear, maybe it’s the ‘new walk’ I’m trying out. But whatever the reason, the general public appear to be perpetually compelled by me and my odours. But it seems you people, generally known as ‘normal, sane people’, are more of an open book. ‘But how,’ you splutter while spraying muesli all over the barista. It’s your car. It reveals more about you than your name, height or a thorough internal medical examination. All is revealed in this informative and completely Meerkat free Infographic that is reproduced below. Within it, all the vehicular nuggets that indicate exactly the sort of person you are and what has gone wrong are openly displayed and celebrated. If, after reading, you do make a breakthrough and find it necessary to share your emotions with the larger world, you can simply take the code that lives under the Infographic like a common bridge troll and slap it up,…

How To Build a Monster Truck

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Wait, so great big Monster Trucks aren’t the result of a juggernaut getting it on with a camper van? No! Apparently neither mechanics nor nature work in that way. Boy is my face red. Instead Monster Trucks are painstakingly constructed by human beings. Human beings with passion, big tyres and too much time on their hands. And probably an extensive collection of novelty belt buckles. Don’t ask me why, I just picture them that way. ‘But yes,’ you warble, ‘you’ve certainly given me the vague ballpark nutshell of all that Monster Truck hoo-hah, but I’m on a particular brand of medication that forces me to insist on obtaining VERY SPECIFIC DETAILS about EVERYTHING and then add them to my dossier, which is called ‘The Dossier’ and buried in a country park not far from here’. Behold! The Infographic below (if you’re not seeing the Infographic below, what’s wrong with you? Why have you got to cause trouble, eh?) fills you in on every aspect of Monster Truck construction from lug nuts to wing nuts. And many nuts in between. Upset your friends and baffle you enemies with your astounding range of new truck knowledge. And then spread the word like…

The World’s Very Worst Cars According To Wish.co.uk

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

With cars, like footballers, certainly the expensive ones catch the eye, but the truly terrible ones are far more entertaining. Yes, watching a gazelle-like centre-forward hurtling down the flank, dummying four defenders and then slotting home a delicate chip is very nice, but watching a donkey of a defender taking a huge swipe at the ball, missing by several feet and somehow kicking himself in the knackers is going to get more hits on You Tube. And so it is we turn to vehicular donkeys. Those cars that, rather than being produced with precision and flair, are more thrown together by glueing some metal onto a shopping trolley and waving an engine in its general direction while being sick. Clunkers, bangers and lemons that are all beautifully represented in our Infographic below. Think of it as a sort of virtual wallchart that you can ‘hang’ (post) onto your ‘wall’ (internet). And if you want to tell the world about low quality automobiles, like a cut-rate Jeremy Clarkson with a speech impediment and a squint, just swipe the code from beneath the image and paste anywhere you like! Even a haberdashers! And if you like drivey car type things, we’ve got…

Heads of State: Cost Of Their Cars Vs Corruption

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Look, you don’t want your Head of State to be wandering the streets from parliamentary meeting to trade delegation, getting dust all over their turn-ups and a big, fat sweaty face, do you? No, of course you don’t. That would be an abomination bordering on insanity. How is your country going to go cap in hand to the World Bank for a much needed bail out, if not in an enormous , glossy, bullet and catapult proof car? If they turned up in a Yugo or Fiat, they would be laughed out of the place before a cheque is cut. Your El Presidente needs a massive motor to provoke respect and instil fear in their many enemies. But how do the nice friendly, happy states (hurrah!) match up to those naughty, nasty corrupt ones (boo!)? Do the baddies spend more than the goodies? Well now all those answers, and many more, can be answered with this rather splendid Infographic you see below. Look, digest and probably get a bit peeved at the craziness of it all. And, just like the government does to your tax money, you can STEAL this magnificent artefact by swiping the code that lies beneath it…

Everything You Need To Know About The Internet of Things

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

OK, so we know there’s an internet. We are also aware of things. But what happens when the two concepts meet? Sheer undiluted horror. Why? Well, look over at some inanimate machine that is in your purview. Let’s say it’s a toaster. Stupid isn’t it? Sitting there serving no purpose whatsoever until we have those infrequent occasions when we want to make bread turn brown. We judge the machine and we are safe in that judgement, because it can do nothing in its defence. Except that soon it will be able to do something. It will wait until we are sleeping, creep into our bedrooms and slip scalding hot bagels beneath our slumbering buttocks. And you can thank the internet for that. Soon all electronic objects will be networked, then they will think, then they will plot and then they’ll do the bagel thing. Once we are all dead, they can look at this delightful Infographic below and laugh as it charts our doom while illustrating the rise of the machines. And what’s more, we heralded this demise by allowing you to take the code that sits down there and post this information on your very own machine, so it…

What Are The GTA 5 Cars In Real Life?

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

What’s your favourite bit of the gaming behemoth GTA 5? Is it the random beatings, the sudden bursts of ultra-violence or the hidden Dido concerts? No, of course it’s the cars! Those wonderful, animated, floridly titled cars. We all have our favourites, with many of us having multiple posters adorning the walls of our bedsits. But if you are anything like me (and I sincerely hope that you aren’t, it’s awful) you may have wondered what the real inspiration for these magnificent automobiles could have been. Well, don’t scratch your head until a well-formed groove appears on your cranium any longer. We’ve got the information you need right here! In handy dandy Infographic form, so it looks pretty and everything. And what is more, you can swipe the magical code beneath the image and stick the darned thing anywhere you fancy. Though it should probably be a website or blog, otherwise the council might be after you. And if all this car nonsense has awakened the Petrolhead within you, have a gander at our marvellous collection of driving experiences RIGHT HERE

How To Drive in a Stunty Way [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

The smell of burning rubber. The screech of a tyre. The sight of a fully formed man sliding over a bonnet. Everyone loves an auto-vehicular stunt. Nothing gets the heart-pumping and the palms sweaty than a large box of metal swiftly flying over something it was never designed to traverse. But the secrets of stunty driving have long been held to the bosoms of the men and women who conduct them and have never been the shared with mere mortals like me and you. Yes even you, the one with the squint. But through devious means we could never reveal (Cyborgs) we have gleaned just a few of the methods that the stunt community use to make cars jump over things, move in odd directions and produce plumes of lovely smoke. And all these secrets are revealed below in this delightful Infographic for the whole family. Obviously don’t try these things at home. Especially within your home, where a great deal of damage could occur. But do share this knowledge with friends, well-wishers and complete strangers on the internet by stealing and sharing the code that lives below it. And remember – always drive like a pro.

One Day All Wheels Will Be Square [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

For far too long we have had to deal with the tyranny of the circle. To me, it has always been the smuggest of shapes. Once a circle, or to a lesser extent it’s evil cousin the wheel, is brought into play, it can only mean one thing: doing something. Curves are an indicator of action and action means I will have to leave my large, padded, reclining chair and move in some way. And as we all know, nothing good can come of that. Thankfully other lazy people like myself have also decided that curves, circles and wheels are pushy good-for-nothings who probably talk smack about you behind your back and need to be eradicated. They have tried to seek out an alternative and have turned to the safe, reliable square for inspiration. Ah, the square. There’s a shape that will never let you down. Just think of all the wonderful things that are square shaped: crisp sandwiches, potato waffles, oven chips. As this erstwhile Infographic explains, the boffins are winning their war on the stupid, old-fashioned round wheel and are bringing in a bright new future with thrilling cubist designs – finally the domination of the circle could…

Evolution of the Playstation [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Before the invention of the PlayStation, human beings would amuse themselves by hurling sharpened rocks at each other, building and then destroying large wicker men and Atari. It really wasn’t very good. But then, in the mid-1990’s, a gaming event so monumental occurred that Richard Marx considered writing a song about it. Yes, it was the release of the PlayStation 1. Or, as it was known at the time, the PlayStation. Soon the whole wide world was playing along with games such as ‘Fast Car Driving Danger’, ‘Space Guns’ and ‘Chungking Express: The Game‘. And we have never looked back. Well, we all have to look back occasionally, especially when driving. Please, please don’t take that last sentence as a directive to never look back and then sue us when you are rear-ended. What I mean is, we never looked back in a game playing console sort of way. Each evolution of the PlayStation outmaneuvered the previous iteration in both looking nice and sounding great. As this mighty Infographic utterly describing the movements of the PlayStation genre displays, it has ventured from glorious god-like inception to its phoenix like rise from the ashes of PlayStation 3 to be revealed as…

How To Start Your Own Country [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Just imagine how fun it would be to start your very own sovereign nation. You can design your own flag, possibly with a parakeet or the face of Professor Brian Cox (or both) on it. Perhaps have a Hi-NRG dance track as your national anthem (which could be composed by former D:Ream member Professor Brian Cox). And then have Professor Brian Cox on all your currency, with ten Cox’s to the Cox. Creating your own country might strike you as a baffling ordeal with lots of forms to fill out and armies to assemble, but as our Infographic helpfully sets out, it can be achieved in just a few simple steps. Yes you may need your own island or a large boat, and you don’t want to be too close to Tonga, but otherwise it’s a doddle. If you do follow our instructions and start your own nation, we’d love to hear about it. Just drop us a line, if you’ve had the stamps with Professor Brian Cox’s face printed up yet. And if you’d like to spread the word about all this, then just steal the code from beneath the Infographic and copy and paste it wherever you wish….
