I haven’t posted an inforgraphic in a while and this one was too mind boggling to pass up.
“How do you teach homosexuality? Is it like French? I was born of heterosexual parents, taught by heterosexual teachers, in a fiercely heterosexual society. So why then am I homosexual? And, no offense meant, if it were true that children mimic their teachers, we’d have a hell of a lot more nuns running around.”

NCAA Tournament, 2012 - Two charts by Christopher Keach
First: “Here’s a radial version of an NCAA Tournament bracket I created, after seeing a European soccer bracket on fastcodesign.com. I don’t see this replacing the old bracket-style brackets anytime soon, but at least it kept me busy for a few hours. My blog has some info on my Adobe Illustrator process if anyone wants to try to join the fun next year.”
Second: “When making my radial tourney bracket, I looked up the official colors of all the competing schools (excluding those which lost in the play-in games). Only two didn’t have a web page or PDF with official Pantone and/or hex colors. In such cases I pulled colors from their web page layouts (one was brown and one was burgundy, but I don’t remember which). Also, a couple teams list as black could have been listed in the gold/yellow category instead. Finally, Louisville is in the red column, despite their glowing orange semi-final uniforms.”
A rodent-eating snake and a hamster have developed an unusual bond at a zoo in Tokyo, Japan. Their relationship began when zookeepers presented the hamster to the snake as a meal.
However, the rat snake (named Aochan) refused to eat the rodent. The two now share a cage, and the hamster sometimes falls asleep sitting on top of his natural foe. Zookeepers have since named the hamster ‘Gohan’ – the Japanese word for meal.
