Fictional Drugs & Substances from Literature, TV, and Film — Infographic

Fictional Drugs & Substances from Literature, TV, and Film

The worlds created in popular literature, television, and film universes are extraordinarily deep, and as a result many aspects of these worlds and cultures are very throughtout and rich for exploration.  Unfortunately, illicit drugs and substances are no exception.  Drawing heavily from science fiction, but also including other genres, today’s infographic takes a look at several fictional drugs and other substances (for better or worse) you can find in literature, TV, and film.  [VIA]

History of the Hottest Christmas Toys — Infographic

History of the Hottest Christmas Toys 1903-2010

Gift giving has always been a very important part of Christmas.  Granted, there are arguments today that the true meaning of giving and appreciation have really been lost recently to the commercialism of the holiday, but it remains nonetheless.  Since Christmas is generally centered around children (or our inner child) today’s infographic takes a look at the most popular toys over the 107 year span from 1903-2010.  Take a look at what the “must-have” gifts were over the years — we know there’s always one each year.  Speaking of which, anyone know where I can get my hands on a Hatchimal?!?.  [VIA]
