I'm honestly not sure which is weirder: That Clean Air Asia made an interactive map of air pollution that visualizes various cities' smog levels in terms of nose-hair length ... or the fact that thicker, more luxuriant nose hairs really do reduce your risk of asthma. The world is a strange place, people.

    This is due to the increasing proliferation of the D3 javascript data visualization library. Ridiculous visualizations are going to be the drop-shadow and Template Gothic Bold of 2013.
