We brought you three ways to feel really small and one way to feel really big. Next up, a way to feel really short. It’s an infographic at ouramazingplanet.com, it’s to scale and it depicts the height and depth of everything worth knowing starting at 30,000 feet in the air and ending 36,000 feet under the sea. In all it’s 66, 000 feet of words like “the Hades Zone”, “mesopelagic” and “at this height it takes over 18 minutes to boil an egg”. The infographic also includes the Deepwater Horizon, also known as the source of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which drilled down 18,000 feet to hit oil. 18,000 feet is almost the height of Kilimajaro which just goes to show how bad we need oil.
A couple more interesting infographics for the weekend:
- An easy, interactive way to visualize all the teams that have won the Stanley Cup. I thought Toronto’s dry spell was bad, I didn’t realize that Philadelphia has been to the final six times since they last won in 1975.
- The Wall Street Journal has this cool interactive map which lets you see where nationals from each country in the World Cup live in New York City. I wish we had a map like this for Montreal. I want to party in little Slovenia.
- Lastly, here’s the only place I’m getting my World Cup schedule information.
