A couple of things that I love about this infographic:

1. It is a lot of fun. Sometime in the course of reading down you might be convinced that you can harmlessly eat something that you’ve dropped on the ground for five seconds or less.

2. It comes with a disclaimer at the end that it is fictitious. 95% of infographics should probably come with this disclaimer, but this is the only one I’ve ever seen that actually does.

I’m curious to know your thoughts on this one (to vet whether I’d ever want to eat with you). :)

I aspire to give people something to think about rather than tell them what to do. My favorite Google Alert is "social media research," I am increasingly compelled by Gen Z, and I appreciate good writers agnostic of where they write. At one time I was Kred's 12th most influential social media blogger and Klout's most influential person on the topic of David Hasselhoff. Transplant from Seattle living in Cincinnati. Haven't entirely adopted the local sports teams yet.
