In the early days of the web, Am I Right was one of the funniest sites there was: a database of misheard lyrics. The misunderstanding of the psychedelic Beatles lyrics “A girl with kaleidoscope eyes” with the absurdist “A girl with colitis goes by” is still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.
And now there is a wonderful infograph by direct lyrics, to summarize the most common mistakes. Wasn’t it about time?
By the way, Am I Right has also published a collection of misheard lyrics in Hold Me Closer, Tony Danza: And Other Misheard Lyrics.
See the full infograph after the jump.

Thanks to Dexter and CSI, we all became expert in identifying the profile of a murderer through the spatter of blood in a crime scene. We know what a bloodstain pattern analysis is and we can define the date and time of the crime, the type and velocity of the weapon and if the assailant was left or right handed. Is this normal?

How did the future that George Orwell and Aldous Huxley visualised turn out to be? The following infographic, created by Column Five for Akorn Entertainment, compares the concepts of 1984 and Brave New World to the current state of the Internet, as it has been evolved through the Internet censorship techniques of the East and the continuous stream of trivial information of the West.

There is an infographic for everything. From comparing the most controversial figures, like the Beatles & Jesus or even Kanye West to Bob Dylan, to unraveling the universe of your social self and from exploring theories, genres and art movements, such as science fiction or graffiti and street art to explaining the form of the infograph itself in a rather self-referential mode.
It is the new form of conveying easily and visually appealing information, but Chad Hagen’s ‘Nonsensical Infographics’ convey no information, they play rather with form than function and remain visually challenging.

Almost every year, we spend hours or days thinking about the new, faster, smaller, lighter computer we will buy. But what if we can’t buy new computers anymore? Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore noted in 1965 that the number of components used in integrated circuits had doubled every year from 1958 until 1965 and predicted that the trend would continue for “at least ten years”.
Computers continue to get faster every year by packing more microscopic transistors onto the surface of a microchip, but for how long? According to Moore’s law, the end of computers will arrive around 2023, the date that they won’t be able to get any smaller.
The following infographic describes shortly the history of modern computing and presents some interesting views of the future. « Read the rest of this entry »
