Writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler, the imaginative pair often known as Wumo, developed an awesome compilation of charts that describe examples of the fundamental painful truths of day to day life in the Western world.
Wulff and Morgenthaler publish these graphics on Wumo (formerly known as Wulffmorgenthaler). Their latest feat was ending up as a frequent comic strip in the New York Times.

Further, the bulk of genes in the nucleus all trace back to different times—as far back as two million years.
