Reminds me of my Logic classes in college. Ah, the days…
I love infographics. That is all.
The Secret to Our Success
Becky would appreciate this.
I just think this infograpahic of the Chile Earthquake is really cool. The earthquake was rated an 8.8 on the Moment Magnitude Scale (MMS). The MMS is the successor to the more commonly known Richter Scale.
It’s also worth comparing to the recent Haiti Earthquake, which was rated a 7 on the MMS. People who aren’t nerds like me may not be aware that the MMS, and formerly the Ricter Scale, is a logarithmic scale, not a linear one. What this means is that while the Haitian earthquake had about 50 megatons of energy, the Chilean earthquake had about 10,020 megatons of energy. That’s roughly 500 times as much energy.

I couldn’t help but find this infographic from The Atlantic really interesting: Same Sex Marriage Vs. First Cousin Marriage.
I am a sucker for infographics. I also happen to be one of those crazy people who care about the environment. This infographic on climate change deniers vs the consensus is pretty neat.
