Who could have ever thought that charts and graphs might have anything to do with fun?
At least not until creative Cheezburger guys launched a project called GraphJam few years ago.
GraphJam.com explains daily life, music, songs and pop culture in charts and graphs. Readers can even submit their own graphs based on their own experiences and observations.
According to its founders, GraphJam is the unholy love child of bored office workers, music and pop culture. The mash-up of graphs and music did not originate here, but their inspiration came from their friends at JamPhat.
Others say that GraphJam also might want to attribute the Something Awful forums, who did this originally (and from which some of the JamPhat images were taken).
No matter what, you’ll definitely laugh out loud at these 35 funniest graphs from GraphJam.

Photographers Rights In The UK
Here in the UK, there’s been a recent spate of harassment and even arrests of innocent photographers by police invoking anti-terrorism laws.
So we’ve compiled an easy-to-read wallet-sized infosheet of photographer legal rights here in the UK (PDF). It’s designed by David McCandless and Joe Swainson. The information is sourced directly from the UK Metropolitan Police and distilled from other bust cards out there.
Download and print the PDF, cut it out and stick it in your wallet or purse. If you’re stopped by police for taking photos, whip out the sheet and instantly check your rights.
Of course, it’s never a good plan to antagonise the politzei. We hear they’re particularly unimpressed by having ‘infosheets’ waved in their faces. If you are stopped for suspicious photography, a good response is usually something like:
“I’m an amateur photographer taking pictures for fun. Would you like to see them officer?”
NOTE: Note Saturday 23rd Jan 2010, there’s a Mass Photo Gathering in Trafalgar Square in London 12 Noon to protest photographers rights. It’s organized by PhotographerNotATerrorist.org
