A chart that will help you finally understand your dog.
In order to really understand what your dog is trying to tell you, it’s important to observe their body language and listen to the noises they make.
You may think you know exactly what your dog is saying by wagging its tail, for example. But were you aware that this can signify a number of feelings – from excited, playful or attentive, to apprehensive and even slightly nervous?
Our visual guide offers an overview of some common dog behaviours and expressions, to help you understand what exactly your dog is trying to communicate.
A glimpse of the revolving door that existed between Mainstream Media network executives and the Obama White House. The map below gives us a glance at the media’s incestuous relationships with the administration.
It is a tangled web, in the Sir Walter Scott sense of the term… “Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”
This chart shows how you’ll probably die.
Wondering how you’re most likely to die? Skip the online quizzes and morbid daydreaming, and sate your curiosity with this grim government chart.
The data comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), which tracks injuries (fatal and otherwise) because, just like disease, they can kill you. The white squares above are diseases and health conditions; the colored squares are injury related.
For older folks, the leading causes of death are heart disease, cancer (“malignant neoplasms”), and lung disease. Influenza and pneumonia make the top ten for every age group except the tiniest babies, who have worse things to worry about. (What have we said about not pooh-poohing the flu shot?) For young adults, those health-related causes are still important, but unintentional injuries top them.

Everyone poops. Fact. But before they do, they fart.
Anyways, like them or not, they’re here to stay. Well… hopefully not too long actually. You see, holding in your gas can be vital in some circumstances: first dates, once in a lifetime elevator pitches, second dates, epic sports moments, third dates, acceptance speeches, etc., but you can’t hold it in forever. We all know the discomfort of putting a cork in it, and the eventual relief of letting loose from the caboose.
Parents may frown and tell their kids to say “pardon me” when they shamelessly tear ass, in the hopes that when they become an adult they’ll master some restraint and no longer blow themselves around the room in mixed company. But when you first become a parent, there will be a point where you beg for farts.
When you fail in trying to bounce a burp out of your new little gas bag, you know the problem has probably travelled south. Some of us try to perform fart yoga with maneuvers like upward-facing folding chair. Some of us wax-on wax-off on their tummies to try to gently Karate out the belly bullies. Like burping, we try to fart our baby.
There is a unique helplessness you feel watching your colic-bloated baby fussing and crying, squirming around restless and tormented like an over-inflated but unhugged bagpipe.
There is no sweeter sound to a care-worn parent’s ears than the sound of a sumo wrestler going bareback down a park slide, when that sound comes from their baby’s bum. Farts can be little stinky gifts.
So they’re not so bad. Okay, sometimes they’re really bad. But they’re a part of life. Think of them as a butthole clapping. Sooooo… Good job, right?
