The Everyday, Anytime Egg-Combination Generator

Sometimes, while spending a hour finely slicing vegetables for soup or kneading a dough, or specifically, whipping a meringue to make ice cream, mousse, or, more-or-less, any dessert I actually make, I muse on how so many dishes couldn't exist without the unique white-and-yolk properties of eggs. Or rather, it's precisely because we have eggs and the work the way they do that we have these dishes in the first place; and if chickens popped out some entirely different foodstuff, our culinary traditions would be rather different, because they would have been based on the properties of this other thing, rather than the egg. It is indeed incredible, and edible.

Infographic: How Do You Compare to the Average Man?

created at: 03/12/2012

ManMade was founded on the idea that there's no such thing as the "average man," at least as far as creativity and hobbies go... But, as a site and community dedicated to making fruitful lifestyle choices, it is interesting to see how our own lives and habits might stack up against our peers. Compared to the "mean" man, let's say.  

For example, check out this graph on average men's fitness to see how your health compares to others. Not like a locker room, howmanypushupscanyoudo sorta challenge

How to Live a Creative Life (an Infographic)

The current issue of Fast Company magazine (on stands now) features an amazing centerpiece on "How to Live a Creative Life." The article begins with a fascinating interview with Martin Scorsese, and his ability to, basically, do what fulfills him, and make incredible, personal films with Hollywood's money. "The director has achieved the trifecta of a fulfilling, creative life: enough money to do only what truly interests him, enough freedom to attack those projects in a way that is satisfying, and enough appreciation from his peers to tame--just slightly, just ever so slightly--the neurotic beast of self-doubt."

Equally interesting are the various breakout boxes and b-sides, including this awesome flow chart on How to Live a Creative Life, designed by ManMade faves, PopChartLabs.

Michael Bayhem: The Correlation Between Explosions and Moneymaking

created at: 11/04/2011

Every summer, Michael Bay makes a new incredibly expensive movie, full of fire and always terribly reviewed. And yet, the studios still let the guy keep making them, 'cause apparently folks still go see 'em, and their, despite their $200,000,000 budgets (yes, that's two hundred million dollars), they still make money. Lots of money.

And, interestingly enough, it seems that their profit continues to be related to, well, how many explosions there are.
