…Box office data looks better visualized?

The New York Times - The Ebb And Flow Of Movies: Box Office Receipts 1986 - 2007

The New York Times put together a fantastically informative infographic of box office data for Hollywood films from 1986 through 2007.

The height shows the weekly revenue, and the area and color represent the total gross, so you can quickly and easily compare movies side by side.

Notice any trends?

…USPS is impressive?

USPS

Mail is a magical thing.

You handwrite an address on an envelope and attach a stamp to the outside, and a few days later your letter arrives exactly where it’s supposed to be.

So how does the USPS manage to handle 703 million pieces of mail per day?

Good Magazine has put together an impressive graphic representation of a comparison between FedEx, UPS, DHL and the USPS, and the numbers are staggering:

    700,000 employees, $73 billion revenue, 37,000 post offices, and 216,000 vehicles, all to deliver you your bills, Netflix, and credit card offers.

Rain, sleet or snow indeed.
