The Mother Of All Infographics


I'm a sucker for charts and diagrams.

Last night, Professor Brian Cox was chatting away to me (in person, I might add), about how much money the government spends on scientific endeavours and what a miniscule proportion of the overall budget it is. He used this diagram:

which the Guardian published a couple of years ago to illustrate it. Sadly there doesn't appear to be a 2010 version. I think we have to wait for a spending review.

It's still bloomin' awesome though!

The most disgusting thing is the loan repayment figure of 25bn as our debt is approx 470bn and before we all blame the banks - they were bailed out to the tune of 85bn which suggests some money has been wasted elsewhere...

If we get the debt under control there'll be more money to spend on cool stuff -

I have a bit of a man crush on him!

He was doing a live lecture in Bristol with Ben Goldacre (another of my heroes - he's the guy that called out Gillian McKeith on her phony doctor's credentials, by getting his dead cat a doctorate from the same dodgy south american online 'university'), Simon Singh and some other sciency people. It were BRILLIANT. Like being at a LECTURE on MARS! I LOVE physics. It's so BRILLIANT, by eck. Must...stop...grinning...

I'm a bit jealous :) I would love to meet that man and pick his brain.

Back to infographics.

Remember the Tommy Wesphall theory that states that based on shared characters, products and places, most television series take place within the mind of a character from St Elsewhere? No?

Okay here's a link.

The infographic that used to go with it looked like this:

Pretty dull, huh?

But now it looks like THIS!


It's so pretty...
