Bog Standards

Trawling through our ‘irreverent-but-interesting-research-snippets’ folder earlier on, we rediscovered a bathroom-focused infographics example from a while back and thought it was perhaps time to show it again.

Especially as toilet humour opinions are even more topical now that Andrex have revealed the results of their  recent (and let’s be honest, massively over-sharing) Scrunch or Fold bum-wiping social media engagement campaign:

Anyhow, onto onto the paper-hanging debate. If nothing else, the visual we’ve included below demonstrates that no topic or theme is  ever ‘off limits’ for the burgeoning infographics trend, using the tried and tested principle of combining analysis and information flow through an accessible graphic narrative.

For the record, the Space office voted near-unanimously for the over method of storing their personal toilet paper, so no debate here in our WC (2E 7HF).

Horse meat Tesco

With the bizarre news that a range of burgers from Tesco actually contain traces of horse meat, maybe now is an ideal time for some decisions.

  • Time to resist using any more dodgy puns.
    (Thoroughbred and Butter, Tesco Cheval(ue), Foal Play, etc, etc)
  • Time to look more closely at providers of ingredients to chain stores.
  • Time to question what all the fuss might be about.
  • Time to consider whether horse meat is a viable food source in the UK.
  • Time to become a vegetarian.
  • Time to get on with some more work.

Or perhaps it’s simply time to share a topical meat and cooking related infographic – like this handy ‘cheat sheet’ for kitchens from

Although there are a multitude of apps, gizmos and gadgets that do a similar job, we reckon that this is a great effort at conveying a multitude of information in one place, in a nice retro-tinged design layout.

All it’s missing is a section on our horseshoe wearing friends…



US versus them

The Donkey or the Elephant.
New boys or GOP.
Democrats or Republicans.
Obama or Romney.

Whatever you know them as, $5.8 billion has been spent on convincing Americans to plump for one of them to lead the Super Power by voting during today. In the next 24 hours,  the most powerful man in the universe* will have been chosen… and we’ll see what kind of world we’ll be waking up to by morning.

We love a good infographic at Space, so the election also gives us a great opportunity to share a link to many great examples from the last few weeks, courtesy of some partisan and creative individuals stateside.

Another really interesting thing with the 2012 US election, is the little-reported fact that there are lots of burning issues state to state that are also being decided, from abortion, to legalised drugs, to assisted suicide. Massively contentious and spirited topics (aka the most interesting topics) one and all. Find out more via the relevant link at the end of this post.

Often cited as being extremely myopic, with things such as televised ’60 seconds around the world’ bulletins often containing US-only content,  the collective citizens of the United States will nevertheless be helping to shape our own immediate economic and social futures for the next few years – and those of many countries in the world. Who said politics was unimportant?!

So, no pressure then guys.
