Infographic of the Day: Just as they did in 2008 and 2009, Gallup spent each day last year phoning up 1,000 random people from across the country to ask them how they’re doing (among other, more specific questions about good and bad habits).
The survey results were compiled into the 2010 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index Map, which breaks down America’s quality of life by district. Click here to get interactive with the inforgraphic.
According to the Index, America’s happiest person would be “a tall, Asian-American, observant Jew who is at least 65 and married, has children, lives in Hawaii, runs his own business and has a household income of more than $120,000 a year.”
Bonus: The New York Times found him.

Infographic of the Day: Phone directories and some computer software helped a team of University College London geographers compile a US map of most common last names by region.
Many of these names came from Great Britain, reflecting the long head start the British had over many other settlers. The low diversity of names in parts of the British Isles also had an impact. Williams, for example, was a common name among Welsh immigrants—and is still among the top names in many American states.

Ah mushrooms, practically harmless. Just as I would have predicted.
Found this on the BBC News website here, I thought it was pretty interesting.
