All 786 Known Planets (as of June 2012) to Scale Planets are turning out to be so common that to show all the planets in our galaxy, this chart would have to be nested in itself—with each planet replaced by a copy of the chart—at least three levels deep. (via http://xkcd.com/1071/large/)
I fall in love with science a little more every day, because of stuff like this.
I'm just impressed there was still a billion dollar market for tapes as late as 2003.

Fascinerende optische illusie
Think this image is spinning? It's not. This optical illusion is created by involuntary eye movements called microsaccades. Share this post with your friends and ask if they see the motion! (via Lumosity)
Dizzy circles, trinity version
moving pictures look in to this for 10 seconds it will start to ,move!!!!!!
How Our Brains Set the World Spinning -- If there’s ever excuse to publish an optical illusion as cool as the “Rotating Snakes,” I’ll take it. This illusion was invented in 2003 by Akiyoshi Kitaoka of Ritsumeikan University in Japan, and ever since, Kitaoka and other scientists have been trying to figure out why it works. A new paper by Stephen Macknik at the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix may have the answer.

Wahls argues that the debate surrounding same-sex marriage pretends to be about what is best for children, but it is really about codifying discrimination against the LGBTQ community]

Apparently we are NOT a bunch of uncouth illiterates compared to our parents and grandparents. (Though we could still be uncouth and the graph can't vouch for the *quality* of the books we are reading but I try to be upbeat about these things. :)

The Next Time Someone Says the Internet Killed Reading Books, Show Them This Chart
The amount of people reading books.
Do you happen to be reading any book or novels right now? The percentage of people answering this question has more than doubled since 1949. Anybody who still thinks the internet is killing reading in this country is wrong. On the contrary, it's helping quite a bit. Books are easier and cheaper to download to a kindle. Websites like Pinterest, Tumblr and, yes, Facebook help spread memes about popular books which makes users want to read them too. Reading is definitely in :)

It's amazing that the pace of adoption has been relatively constant in time, but the number of new things to adopt is increasing with time.

Consumption Spreads Faster Today
Adoption rates of new technologies
Technology adoption curves for last 100 years. The microwave was adopted more quickly than the internet.
Just 20 years ago <10% of families had a mobile phone or access to the Internet. The giant leap since and the incessant innovation has created a major gap for many people (with maybe the exception of millennials) of quick adaptability skills. Great illustration of the technological advances since 1900. Question is will we have to curtail innovation leaps in order to keep up with ourselves
