Google Play quietly updated its device availability page over the weekend, making the Nexus 7 available to Germany, France and Spain. Patient Europeans can now pick up Mountain View’s seven-inch wonderkind’s 8GB and 16GB models for €199 and €249, respectively. Conversion rates comparatively price the slate at about $ 248 and $ 311, meaning the new markets will have to suffer a small premium for the slate. Worse still, is that not all of Google Play’s services are available worldwide, with both Play Music and Magazines retaining US exclusivity. If you can bear with the inconveniences, however, one fine little tablet awaits.
This is an easy-to-understand chart depicting how common birthdays are in the US based on data from 1973-1999. *sobbing* My parents said I was special — it looks like half the f***ing country was born August 12th! So yeah, basically if you were born in July-September you aren’t that special because it’s a well known fact that everybody porks like crazy in the winter because it’s cold and, well, there’s nothing good on TV and you’re already under the covers. Nobody wants to have sex in the middle of August and get all hot & sticky then not be able to cool down because your shitty window-unit air conditioner doesn’t even work well enough to prevent you from breaking a sweat sitting still. “You’re crazy. I love hot, summer sex.” YOU ARE A FREAK. “No, I just have A/C that works.” Ooooh, Mr. Moneybags over here — shut up and go eat your cavalier! “Caviar?” OMG you think you’re SO fancy. You’re no better than me! *tries flicking booger but it keeps getting stuck to a fingernail*
Thanks to Gregory, who tried telling me he was born on a leap day. Impressive, Gregory, but nowhere near as impressive as being born ON A SPACESHIP like I was. Haha — I win!
Used to be, musicians were judged (commercially speaking, of course) by how much radio play they got and how many albums and singles they sold. The UK’s answer to Billboard, the Official Charts Company, has seen a future filled with streaming music from services like Spotify, Napster and Deezer and decided that it needed a streaming chart to truly judge the success or failure of today’s, and tomorrow’s, top tunes. Thus, a Top 100 streaming chart was created and is set to launch next Monday, May 14. So, who rules the web across the pod, sonically speaking? You’ll have to wait for the full list, but a preview of the top ten artists awaits in the PR below.

Come in handy — get it? Like your wiener when you’re peeing! “I don’t touch it when I pee.” DON’T TRY TO JUSTIFY NOT WASHING YOUR HANDS.
This is a chart from the Boy Scouts of America that offers a general indication of your dehydration based on the color of your urine. I don’t know what the hell is going on at the top of the chart, but I’ve never pissed peach before. Just remember: if your pee’s brown you’re in serious trouble. Ooooooooooor can’t tell the difference between your penis and b-hole.

Thanks to Clark, who claims he didn’t learn anything in the Boy Scouts except how to tie knots. Me? I LEARNED HOW TO SURVIVE (my troop accidentally left me on camping trip).Related Posts:

This is a small chart depicting the various levels of good vs neutral vs evil found in comic book characters and a brief explanation of each. Whether you agree or disagree with the chart, you’ve already spent way too much time and brain power thinking about it. God, we could be planning a bank robbery right now and taking what is rightfully ours! “I’d say that makes you a neutral evil.” WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU?!

It feels like just yesterday we charted the streaming music landscape, but it’s already changed in a big way — Google is muscling in on the likes of Rhapsody, Pandora and particularly Amazon with its Google Music Beta. Being able to take 20,000 of your personal tunes, stream them over the web and cache them locally on your device isn’t functionality to sneeze at, so it’s time we updated our charts. After the break, see how the big streaming services stack up.

This is a great chart. Like most infographics, its object is more to look informative rather than be informative, but all the same it’s a fun visualization of the wild world of tech and telecoms lawsuits.
