This Is What The World Would Look Like If Nobody Ate Meat

Would the world really be any different if every human being suddenly became a vegetarian? The folks at ASAPscience took a look at the global outcome of a world-wide vegetarian conversation and shared their analysis through video.

They explain what would happen to the animals, the land and plant life if no one ate meat anymore. Told in adorable doodles, all the possible implications of the meat-less change are explored. This includes what happens to the pastures used to raise cattle and the land used to grow crops for pastures.

Would we be better off if everyone was vegetarian?

Check out the informative video.

The Average Cost of Beer Around the World [Infographic]

Beer-Chart-International

If you’re ever traveling across the world, you’re gonna want to make every penny count. You’re not going to want to spend up to $5 on a beer you can purchase for half that back home. So what’s a boozy world traveler to do?

A study conducted by GoEuro found the average costs of a 330ml (11.2oz) per country. Wall Street Journal reports that the data gathered was based on the average price of a 330ml bottle purchased at a discount store. This includes several world-wide brands and a major local brand.

In the lead is Oslo, Norway with a price of £2.87 per pint of beer per average store. That’s $4.77 for a beer in the US, and let’s not forget that its also from a discount store. The cheapest beer, however, comes from Warsaw with a measly sum of £0.64 ($1.06 US). Dollar menu beer, anyone?

Check out the infographic below the next time you’re primed to jet-set across the world. You might save yourself a few bucks in booze.

Global Tipping Calculator Helps You Not Be a Douchebag Around the World

tip-this-much

It’s hard enough keeping track of tipping etiquette in the U.S. (is 20% still good, or is it 25% now? if service was absolutely horrible, is it too mean to leave 0%?). We can only imagine how complicated it gets overseas.

Tipthismuch.in is a nifty tip calculator that lists the customary tip in over 50 different countries (and, for Doctor Who fans, one entire planet). The free app also lets you plug in specific bill amounts and offers split totals should you decide to divvy the payment among friends.

The idea was inspired by twitter user @jessicahische, who requested someone build a site like weather forecaster “Do I Need An Umbrella?”, but for international tips. The result is cute and significantly more convenient than asking the locals (and less social — just the way we like it).

Whether you have a sweet tooth or not, you’re probably familiar with some crazy desserts as of late, like the Cronut and the White Truffle Doughnut. Well, turns out this is child’s play when you take a gander at the confections found in Scotland (they’ve been on their deep-fried candy bar game  for ages) to China. From cookies and pastries to deep-fried and frozen treats, this infographic from Lemonly illustrates how dessert-lovers from around the world indulge.

The French, for example, love a good chocolate soufflé, while Australians satisfy their sweet tooths with pavlova — a meringue crust topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Drooling yet? Enjoy even more global dessert education below:
