Are we, or are we not, a nation of sandwich lovers? I would venture that we are probably more obsessed about sandwiches than most any other food, other than perhaps pizza and barbeque.

My Kind of Infographic

He’s created a “Handmade Data Visualization Tool-Kit” for those of us who wish to tackle the wrangling of data in a more home-spun fashion. Brilliant. Thanks Flavorwire!

Infographics: 1) Number of real vs. spam emails sent daily.  2) Internet users 2000-2010. 3) Twitter followers comparison. 4) Internet users by country.
