Suggestion Saturday: April 30, 2011

Here is this week’s list of charts, videos, quotes and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

My mother loved children – she would have given anything if I had been one. Groucho Marx

Tree of Life. A visual representation of every known species on earth. I never would have guessed there were so many fungi.

Should You Bring It Up? Despite what the rest of the site may say I’d argue that this chart is as handy with family and friends as it would be with a significant other. Don’t bash people over the head with complaints or dive into complicated disagreements when you’re sick, tired or hungry. Do give them the benefit of the doubt and listen to what is actually being communicated. It isn’t anything I haven’t heard before but there’s something eye-catching about seeing it in a flowchart.

Spam. Someone has finally figured out a use for those unsolicited emails that pop up in your inbox promising to improve your sex life. I love how each image plays around with our preconceived expectations of language.

Via Cynthia from A Life Profound:

What I’m reading: Kale Capek’s The Absolute at Large, a classic scifi tale about a scientist who accidentally releases God into the world.

What have you been reading?

    Just love the tree of life chart that is shown on an actual tree trunk! Beautiful!

    Just finished reading This Life Is In Your Hands. Really enjoyed reading it. I’ve always sort of wanted to live a hippie/commune/off the grid lifestyle so I found this book interesting.

    • That chart is very fascinating.

      I don’t know if I’d want to live in a commune. Some days it appeals to me, others I’d rather live in the woods alone. 😛
