We've featured the amazing work of graphic designer and comedian Doogie Horner on Boing Boing before. (HOWTO explain the Internet to a Dickensian street urchin, Things to say during sex, Heavy Metal band name taxonomy)
He's got a new book out filled with these funny charts, called Everything Explained Through Flowcharts.
Everything Explained Through Flowcharts is packed with meticulously designed charts that trace the labyrinthine connections that order the universe, illuminate life's great mysteries, and cause eye strain in senior citizens. Swiss scientists at the prestigious University of Helsinki have said that Everything Explained Through Flowcharts is the closest thing there is to a working unified field theory, and have gone on to claim that they aren't Swiss, aren't scientists, and aren't sure whether or not Helsinki is in Switzerland. And yet the Swiss consulate has not denied that this book contains more than two hundred illustrations, forty mammoth charts, and innumerable supporting graphs and essays, including:
• An illustrated matrix of WWF Finishing Moves
• Heavy metal band names taxonomy
• The noble art of zeppelin warfare demystified
• How to win any argument
• Tragedy to comedy conversion chart for comedians
• A creepy drawing of a baby skeleton
• How to tell if you're an evil twin
To celebrate the launch of book, Doogie created a chart of late night talk show hosts especially for Boing Boing.
The above is just a small portion of the chart. The entire chart can be viewed here.

There are two times you never want to just “eyeball” it: Conducting brain surgery and matching shades of paint for your walls. Whether you’re painting or repainting, make sure you’re never just “close enough” to the color you want. Not when the Nix Mini Color Sensor can scan and match any color perfectly. Small enough […]
