Video game characters have it easy: they never have to change clothes. Whether they're saving the world or just catching Pokemon, our heroes — Master Chief, Link, Mario, Samus Aran — are always wearing the same damn thing. But their outfits aren't always cheap. Master Chief's get up can cost over a 100 million dollars. Even Link's elf get up rings up over a thousand bucks. Not everybody can just wear a tie and eat bananas like Donkey Kong.

Lost in all those superhero comic book flicks that hijack too many screens in movie theatres is how in preventing a villain from let's say, world destruction or universe domination, the superhero becomes responsible for a lot of damage to a city.

Imagine life without Star Wars. It kind of sucks, right? But that's just because we think about not knowing Darth Vader and R2-D2 and Han Solo and light sabers and Death Stars.

Well, the picture above answers the first question and this animated infographic by SilencerCo, the second.

Here's a fact about living on Earth: it's hard to keep track of who boned who. Even comic book superheroes have a hard time remembering who they have had relations with and who they kissed and who they briefly dated. This infographic breaks it down for you, to show you which superhero has been around where in the Marvel universe.

Space is big, humans are small, and spacecrafts, well, vary more in size than you might think. Redditor Heaney555 has compiled an a chart, to scale, of every rocket, spacecraft, and space station involved in human spaceflight. And man, Saturn V is huuuuuuuge — it's as long as the whole International Space Station.

I've always been interested in the distribution of the human population across the globe. It's far from an even spread — this map shows where people are most squished in (dark colours) and where they're spread out (light colours).

People attribute a lot of annoying internet stuff to bots. Twitterbot followers, bots that sneak past spam filters, bots that send weird gibberish on messaging services. It sounds kind of tired, but maybe the situation is exactly as bad as everyone thinks.
