THE ELEMENTS POSTER

In 1966 my grandmother gave the "Life Science Library" book "MATTER". Within this classic book was a section about the elements (BTW, there were only 103 back then). It included a picture and short discussion of each element. This always intrigued me and stirred my imagination. Forty some years later this amazing Poster and Book take the exploration of the elements to a new level. There are many more items for sale at the PeriodicTable.com.

From Periodictable.com:
These periodic tables and books are based on seven years of painstaking photography. Praised by Nobel Laureates, teachers and artists alike, these posters and images are seen on TV and in magazines and museums around the world.

THE ELEMENTS BOOK

This is one of my favorite new books. An amazing and fascinating compilation of incredibally sharp photographs that covers the building blocks of everything we know and are. If you like science you'll love this book.


DEATH AND TAXES POSTER

Poster

For many years this great infographic poster has allowed a mortal human to grasp the unimaginable spending that our great goverment does. This years budget is 1.415 Trillion dollars.

From Wallstats.com:
"Death and Taxes" is a large representational graph and poster of the federal budget. It contains over 500 programs and departments and almost every program that receives over 200 million dollars annually. The data is straight from the president's 2011 budget request and will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress to begin the fiscal year. All of the item circles are proportional in size to their funding levels for visual comparison and the percentage change from both 2010 and 2001 is included so you can spot trends.

Buy a copy of the Death and Taxes poster and see where your tax dollars and debt go.


HOW MUCH IS A TRILLION DOLLARS

Not to go off on a tangent but how much is a trillion dollars? From PageTutor.com:

A packet of $10,000 -- 100 x $100 dollar bills:
Poster

$1 million dollars -- 100 packets of $10,000 dollars:
Poster

$100 million -- 100 x $10,000 packets stacked on a single pallet
Poster

$1 billion -- (10 x $100 million dollar pallets)
Poster

$1 trillion (50 pallets wide by 100 pallets deep, stacked two high!)
For this years 1.415 trillion dollar budget* add 41 1/2 rows to the end of this stack.
That's a spend rate of almost $45,000 per second for a full year!
or $161.5 million dollars per hour for a year!
