This is what your pencil would say about you if anyone used pencils anymore. Do you know anyone who does? If I had any artistic ability whatsoever, I would remake this chart but with penises instead. [The Shelter Of Magnolias]
So, this morning I posted a lengthy essay about my history with exercise and my determined desire to commit to going to yoga three times a week. And then this appears on my Tumblr dashboard. At first, I was like, “Hello, I do not NEED any more excuses not to go to yoga!” But then I looked a little closer at this handy infographic and realized that it actually debunks those very excuses. So the next time I am considering skipping class because I had a burrito for lunch and am particularly gassy, I will remind myself that yoga is a place to embrace my body, including the sounds and smells it emits!

Here’s how the almost 2,000 people arrested in Chatham-Kent, Ontario this year break down by zodiac sign. It looks like Aries are the official criminals of the zodiac according to the stats. An astrologer suggests that this is because Aries dive into everything head first and love adventure. And in case you were thinking Sagittarius were goody goodies, forget it. Those smooth Sags know how to avoid getting caught. [I Love Charts]
I’m really just a science nerd at heart, so this chart of weird facts about the human body makes me very happy. It also makes me want to play Operation. I used to love that game! But I digress. Point being: I find it edifying to know, for instance, that I’m not just imagining it — my middle fingernail does grow faster than the rest and my feet can product a pint of sweat a day.

Here’s an amazing excerpt from the 1948 book, You And Your Sex Life: An Illustrated Guide Book For Women. You’ll find this particularly helpful if you’re one of the few women in the world who still has pubic hair or if you don’t yet use baby wipes. Soap and water does the trick when your pubes become odorous. As far as your anal area, you must cleanse carefully after every “evacuation.” And last but not least, ladies, don’t forget to clean the smegma out of your vestibule, it becomes offensive if neglected. Good to know. [Buzzfeed]

Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception. Adele was deservedly nominated for all the major awards and will likely take them all home. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s 4, which was arguably one of her best albums ever, was snubbed, as was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Jay-Z and Kanye West got some love for their Watch the Throne collab, while Lady Gaga’s third consecutive Album of the Year nod has her tied for the record with The Beatles. And then there was something about a band called Skrillex making me feel old. Those are the noms in a nutshell, with more of my thoughts displayed in the Approval Matrix at left. Here‘s a list of more nominees.
