How Do I Win Rock Paper Scissors Every Time? is a cool infographic from chacha.com.
When you think you’re really good, move up to Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock! Notice how the graphic shows who wins all of the combinations.
In something of a Data Underload, special edition, I played with famous science fiction quotes for Sci Fi Wire. My favorite is obviously from Back to the Future, the greatest movie of all time.

From PCWorld.com, the Visual Field Guide to Fanboys is a humorous look at techie fanboys of all types.
What is a fanboy? Here’s one definition from the Urban Dictionary: “A passionate fan of various elements of geek culture (e.g. sci-fi, comics, Star Wars, video games, anime, hobbits, Magic the Gathering, etc.), but who lets his passion override social graces.”
For each one we give you 14 key attributes, such as what sort of clothing they wear, what they drink, what they drive, what turns them on, and what enrages them. We give you just enough to differentiate between species quickly and accurately.

Graphic designer Julian Hansen created this cool typeface decision flowchart, So You Need A Typeface, as part of a school project. The high-resolution version is available to view online, but you can also pre-order the poster version here for $22. It should start shipping on May 2nd.
So you need a typeface is an alternative way on how to choose fonts (or just be inspired) for a specific project, not just by browsing through the pages of FontBook. The list is (very loosely) based on the top 50 of the “Die 100 besten schriften”.
Of course, the part all of you want to see is the infographic branch…
