Infographics

I love them. I really do. They are simple, clean, informative, and beautiful. At least they should be. I love being able to understand a complex idea in a simple manner. For instance, look at this one that I found that explains traffic jams that seem to have no cause.

Isn't that so cool? One simple act of dumb driving can cause a chain reaction.

Man...I had to actually stop in the carpool lane in Seattle a couple days ago, so I could get over and make my exit. I felt kinda bad...now, I feel worse (kinda) I wonder if I caused a major traffic jam behind me.

I see it all the time on the beltway.
Any place there is lots of traffic, it's just the way it is. Cool illustration.

I never cease to be amazed at how many complete idiots drive every day.

I will apply the disdainful head shake and glaring mother eyes until the world is cured.
