From drinkingmap.com, this map shows the legal drinking age by country. For the vast majority of the world 18 is the legal age. There are only a few countries like the U.S. that have a drinking age as high as 21.

Another good one from Wellington Grey. Obesity across the world shown visually. The size of the little person’s body represents the percentage of people in that country with a body-mass index over 30.
Wow…are we fat or what? Are you going to finish those fries?
Here's part two, when Hans Rosling followed-up his 2006 presentation with updated software in 2007. It looks like he's been able to get more data from the UN also.
He gets really excited while describes what's happening as the software animates the data about world health.
unaesthetic.net has posted this fantastic high-res image of a grocery store. This is the nightmare of working in consumer products (like I do). The challenge is getting your product to stand out in this jungle and getting the consumers' attention.
This is a different type of infographic. There are no numbers or values, but you still get the message. Consumer products is a hard business.
This is now hanging on the wall in my office. A constant reminder of all the noise that our products must get through to reach a consumer.
Found on the Princeton University website.
This one shows the accelerating takeover of the world by Starbucks and how quickly they are catching up to the reigning king of the hill, McDonalds. It's a few years old (2003) so let's see how they've done since then...
Starbucks: 6,200 locations in 2003. 11,225 in 2007. Almost double!!!
McDonalds: "Over 31,000" in 2003. Still 31,000 in 2007. No growth for McDonalds!
Do you want coffee with that?
