Pie Chart: The Anatomy Of Brunch

brunch

I’m heading to Portland this week, and me and Winona have plans to get brunch. Do you get brunch? It’s practically an Olympic sport in Brooklyn and, says Winona, Portland. There’s the waiting, and the outfits, and the hangovers and the drinking and eating. So much stuff goes into brunch! Brunch, brunch, brunch! As such, I’ve created a pie chart, delineating about how brunch typically goes, in case you feel like you’re missing out.

Women Elected To Office: Presented In Pretty Rainbow Graph Form

women election map

Oh, how I do love a good infographic! This one from Maria Popova’s blog Exp.lore.com is clever: it shows each how women have been elected to higher office in each state throughout history. U.S. Representatives, U.S. Senators and Governors are represented by a different color, which then mix together in a rainbow of colors if the particular state has a bunch of women in different branches. This infographic is pre-2012 election data — us ladies won big, so there are some more states that should be pink! — but it’s still nevertheless a fascinating way to display the info. [Exp.lore.com]

You didn’t know you had a dessert stomach, did you? Well, you don’t. But it would come in handy for Thanksgiving dinner if you did. I mean, where are you supposed to put the pumpkin pie after you’ve eaten so much stuffing? Sigh. I guess we’ll just have to eat less so there’s room for dessert. Boo! You can see other secret body parts you wish you had here. I could really use an infinite mucus sinus, I’m telling you. [College Humor]

If You’re Tried On “Law & Order” There’s A Good Chance You’re Guilty

Girl, you better not let the lawyers on “Law & Order” try your case, because you’ll likely either end up guilty or serving time. All told, the “L&O” crew have an 80 percent success rate. The obsessives over at Overthinking It created a very complete catalog of all the verdicts over the history of the show. They also took a look at the outcomes per season, and the number of “not guilty” verdicts dished out over the series’ 20 year history. That is a lot of Lenny Briscoe in your face. [Overthinking It]

Which Way Are You Spiraling Today?

Every member of The Frisky staff has cried today. It’s the equivalent of a moon circle in here. I passed around this Emotional Guidance Scale so we could all identify where we were at. If it’s possible to be in both spirals at once, I am simultaneously a number 5 upward (optimism), number 21 downward (insecurity/guilt/unworthiness). I didn’t realize I was so near the bottom. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow. That was my optimism speaking. Ugh. I think I need to eat more pastries. Where are you at today? [dgls.pls]
