It’s time for some lunch time blogging! I started working out this morning so I finished a full workout before going to work. It felt strange yet awesome! Because I’m working out in the mornings now I might use more of my lunch hour to blog. :)
I don’t talk much about politics on the blog because I don’t lean strongly in either direction and, yes, I vote both ways. I found this infographic amusing both because it seems accurate based on the people I know and because I love infographics.
I found it via Mashable. The information comes from collective intelligence decision-making system Hunch.com, a site that’s gathering data from millions of web users about preferences and building a “taste graph” for the entire Internet. The infographic was created by Column Five Media.
Here’s the break down eating habits and preferences by political attitudes:
Fascinating! I have to say I lean more toward the liberal side as far as eating (okay, and sometimes probably in voting and ideology).
My favorite points from the list:
- Conservatives are 94% more likely to consider occasional Chinese takeaway to be exotic ethnic food. (This made me laugh.)
- Liberals are more than 100% more likely to cook a coconut curry with lamb and rice at home.
- Overall, both groups tend to think bacon cheeseburgers are delicious. (Well, yeah!)
- Conservatives overall aren’t really sure what a “foodie” is. They’re 52% more likely to claim not to know what makes a person a “foodie.”
Of course this doesn’t mean much. It’s just interesting and fun.
How do you stack up with your eating habits? Do you lean more towards liberal or conservative? Does this match what you actually are?
