A TREE RING AND A HUMAN FINGERPRINT LOOK ALMOST IDENTICAL
This photo is not two fingerprints side by side, even though it might really look like it is. The image on the left is a tree-ring and the image on the right is a fingerprint. No two fingerprints are the same, and a tree-ring is like nature’s fingerprint. Every tree-ring holds a record of that trees unique relationship with climate.
WHEN YOU REALIZE HOW BIG A GORILLA’S HANDS ARE COMPARED TO A HUMAN HAND
We’ve always known that gorillas and humans are similar in structure. That’s the power of evolution and it’s truly remarkable. However, we aren’t so similar in size and this really puts that into perspective. Our hands might look nearly identical, but nope, gorilla’s hands are huge!
ALL OF THESE WOMEN WEIGH 154 LBS
No matter how we look or what size we are everyone is unique and beautiful. There is no “one size fits all” and people of the same sex can have different body compositions, but weigh exactly the same. Take a look at these comparisons of these women. None of them look the same, but they all weigh 154 lbs.
THE LOGO EVOLUTION OF PEPSI
Pepsi is one of the most popular fizzy drinks available today and loved by millions. However, with the changing times, its logo has also dramatically changed over the years. From its current logo, the brand is so recognizable today that it doesn’t even need to say the word “Pepsi” for people to know what it is.
“TWO SELF-PORTRAITS I DREW FROM A MIRROR 10 YEARS APART, AGE 13 AND 23”
We certainly did a double take after looking at this photo and thought what is there to compare? The picture on the left is clearly a sketch and the picture on the right was taken with a camera. Right? Well…no. These are two drawings of the same person taken 10 years apart. Practice makes perfect, and what talent this man has at only 23 years old. Unbelievable!
HUMAN FOOT VS. ELEPHANT FOOT
Have you ever been interested in the comparison between your own feet and that of an elephants? This photo shows what the cross-section of an elephant’s foot looks like compared to an x-ray of a human foot. Amazingly, the similarities between our feet help us understand the sensitivities in foot problems with elephants. How cool!
GIRLS’ LIFE MAGAZINE COVER VS. BOYS’ LIFE MAGAZINE COVER
The differences between these two magazine covers speaks volumes. Why is the Girls’ Life cover only talking about fashion, hair, drama, and not about their future in computers or becoming a firefighter? The Boys’ Life cover also didn’t offer any fashion tips or a “denim checklist.” Times are different, so lets get it together!
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SMALL VS. MEDIUM ORANGE JUICE AT MCDONALD’S
Have you ever been stuck deciding between what size drink you want? The decision may come down to price because logically, a small drink will be cheaper than a medium size drink. Well, maybe not so much. This photo shows the volume difference between a small and medium orange juice at McDonald’s. What’s the conclusion here? There is essentially no difference. So, our new rule of thumb is go with the bigger drink.
“PERHAPS I SHOULD TRY TAKING OFF MY SHOES WHEN I’M WALKING AROUND OUTSIDE”
This photo right here is highly relatable to some of us, but also extremely funny. Have you ever seen such porcelain colored feet? If only our teeth can look this white! They might be lacking some brown colored Melanin, but these legs certainly don’t. Looks like summer needs to come quickly so he can catch some sun and start wearing flip flops.
BERLIN, GERMANY VIEWED FROM SPACE AT NIGHT
The Berlin Wall was erected in 1961 and divided the east and the west into two separate parts. Before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, each half of the city used different lighting systems. Over 25 years later, reminders of the past is still visible from this space view.
HUMAN HANDS ARE DWARFED BY THE FURRY PAWS OF BORIS THE POLAR BEAR
Woah, this really puts things into perspective when we see a human hand next to a polar bear paw. This is Boris the polar bear at the animal hospital, and we hope he’s okay! As furry and cute as they appear to be, we need to remember they are still massive animals and this comparison proves that.
RUSSIA AND BANGLADESH SIZE AND POPULATION COMPARISSON
This chart comparing the size and population differences between Russia and Bangladesh are totally crazy. Russia is about 115 times bigger than Bangladesh. However, the population of Bangladesh is significantly more than Russia’s population. Apparently, size doesn’t matter here.
THESE TINY BLUE BALLS REPRESENT HOW MANY EARTHS WOULD FIT INSIDE THE SUN
The sun we see daily is an extremely bright, hot ball to put it simply. It has a temperature of 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and we’re sweating just thinking about it. However, how big is the sun? To really put this into perspective, these blue balls are how many planet Earths can fit inside the sun. The sun is 864,000 miles in diameter and 109 times wider than Earth!
THE EVOLUTION OF COCA COLA BOTTLES THROUGH THE YEARS
In 1886 a pharmacist from Atlanta created Coca Cola and the world was never the same again. Coke is the ultimate drink to compliment your movie night popcorn or your McDonalds burger and fry combo. Now for the fun fact: there were so many imposters trying to copy the Coca Cola bottle that they asked design companies to create such a distinct looking bottle that no one would be able to recognize it if it was broken on the ground.
HUMAN SKELETON COMPARED TO A GORILLA SKELETON
Comparisons don’t always have to reveal differences between things, but can include similarities as well. The resemblances between a human skeleton and a gorilla skeleton are truly remarkable. Our skeletons look so similar, but there are a few differences of course. Either way, the power of evolution is an incredible thing.
SMOKING ROOM CEILING VS. NON-SMOKING ROOM CEILING
Looking at this picture it’s pretty obvious to see what the effects of smoking can do. Can you guess which one is the smoking room and which one isn’t? This was taken at the Washington Dulles airport, where smoking rooms are available to those who need a quick fix before a flight.
THE DIFFERENCE 11 DAYS CAN MAKE FOR THIS MAPLE TREE
Living in a place where you have all four seasons is a beautiful thing. From warm and sunny summers, crisp falls, snowy winters, to breezy springs, there is nothing like it. One of the most colorful seasons is definitely fall where nature reveals its true beauty. This photo was taken only 11 days apart from each other and all we can say is wow! Nature is full of surprises and colors.
30 YEARS OF CELL PHONES IN ONE PICTURE
Look at how much cellphones have changed over 30 years. The very first cellphone had a handle for us to carry it, and now we get frustrated if it doesn’t fit in our purse or the pockets of our skinny jeans. The evolution of the mobile phone to smartphone is truly remarkable, and makes us wonder what cellphones will be capable of in the next 30 years.
COMPUTERS 58 YEARS AGO VS. NOW
Computers have evolved and advanced drastically over time and we see how much smaller computers have literally gotten over 58 years. Imagine hauling one of the first computers onto a huge pick up truck, and now you can just stick it in your pocket. Technological advances are truly incredible.
THE DEVESTATING EFFECTS OF A HURRICANE
Hurricanes are some of the post powerful natural disasters to exist and it can definitely be scary to experience. When a hurricane approaches, it causes a lot of damage, and this photo perfectly depicts some of the devastating effects hurricanes have on our cities and homes.
BARCELONA DURING THE DAY VS. AT NIGHT

CANCER SURVIVOR COSPLAYS AS PICARD FROM STAR TREK BECAUSE OF THE CHEMO AND THEN AS RIKER AFTER HIS RECOVERY
It’s pretty amazing how one year can make such a difference in how we look and feel. This man is a cancer survivor and pretty big Star Trek fan if you ask us. These images show him cosplaying two different characters from the movie and the comparisons of how he looks is unbelievable. He plays Picard on the left due to his chemo treatments, and Riker on the right after his chemo, and he looks happy and healthy!
“EVERY ELECTRONIC ITEM HAD ONE PURPOSE . ALL YOU NEED TODAY IS A SMARTPHONE”
The smartphone today is what the laptop, video camera, watch, pager, and telephone were back in the 1990’s, but all in one. It may have been more modest and simpler times back then, but today our access to everything technological is definitely much easier, smaller, and cooler.
“THESE TWO SHOPPERS ARE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE TWO VERY DIFFERENT NIGHTS”
Did you have a little chuckle at this photo? Because we certainly did. There could be several explanations for this hilarious comparison, but no matter the reason, both were celebrating Valentines Day in two very different ways. There is nothing like saying I love you like bringing home chicken wings and whiskey, or tulips and cupcakes.
“FIRST DAY OF PRIMARY SCHOOL VS. LAST DAY OF TEACHER TRAINING”
Seriously though, how cute! Here we see a small boy excited and ready to go to his first day of school equipped with the coolest lunchbox and backpack. Some years later we see the same boy now off to begin his career as a teacher hopefully giving the next generation of kids an awesome education.
LED LIGHTS VS. TRADITIONAL STREET LAMPS
If you need a reason to use LED lights this photo says it all. LED lights are energy efficient, have long lifespans, and help the environment. We can easily see the comparison between street lamps and led lights and in life we choose our paths (no pun intended) so which one would you rather walk on at night?
“LAST WEEK VS. THIS WEEK”
This photo is a reminder of how fast nature works and quickly the seasons change. These photos were taken only one week a part and the visual is absolutely stunning. Plus, vines on a building just add that extra touch of beauty regardless of what season it is.

......... ADVERTISEMENT .........
......... ADVERTISEMENT .........
If you need a good reason to adopt a dog, then this is it. We’re not sure what these pups have been through in their life, but their sad puppy dog eyes from the shelter tell a whole story. This picture is as heartbreaking as it is glorious, and we love a happy dog adoption ending. Their smiles make us smile.
THE LUNGS OF A NON- SMOKER VS. THE LUNGS OF A SMOKER
If you’re looking for a reason to quit smoking, here it is. The comparison between these lungs is like night and day. Healthy lungs typically look and feel like a sponge and are pink in color and squishy. Someone who has been smoking for many years will have lungs that are black or brown, and may be larger in size due to inflammation.
A SHARK BRAIN AND THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM LOOK INCREDIBLY SIMILAR
We were today years old when we found out that a shark brain is nearly identical to a woman’s reproductive system. It kind of makes sense though, a woman’s uterus is fierce and creates life, and sharks are the fierce fish of the sea.
MCDONALD’S HAMBURGER ADVERTISMENT VS. REAL MCDONALDS HAMBURGERS
There’s nothing like a fat, juicy hamburger, and advertising industries are dedicated to selling images that appear bigger and better. However, there’s also nothing more disappointing then receiving a hamburger that is flat, dry, and colorless. This is what we call “perception vs. deception.”
SIZE COMPARISSONS BETWEEN THE EARTH, MARS, AND THE MOON
Here are images of Earth, Mars, and the moon. To compare how much bigger or smaller they are to each other, here is a little perspective. If the Earth was hollow about 50 moons could fit inside. Mars is also smaller than earth, but bigger than the moon. About 7 Mars’s can fit inside the Earth.
ORGANICALLY GROWN POMERGRANATE VS. CONVENTIONALLY GROWN POMEGRANATE
Eating the recommended amount fruit everyday is essential for good health.

However, comparing the sizes between the two, it makes us wonder if bigger is really better.
MEN’S HAND-BALL TEAM UNIFORMS VS. THE WOMEN’S UNIFORMS
Can we spot the difference? This is Norway’s male and female beach handball player teams. The female team was actually fined for wearing shorts in the Euro Championship rather than their bikini bottoms. However, the International Handball Federations published new rules and the women are now able to wear tight shorts and a tank top, which is a step forward for gender equality in sports.
A HEALTHY BRAIN VS. A BRAIN WITH ALZHEIMERS
The brain is the most important organ that we have and it controls nearly everything including our memory. The left image is that of of healthy, normal brain.

THE BEAUTY OF A BALLERINA FOOT WITH POINT SHOES VS. THE UNSEEN BALLERINA FOOT WITHOUT POINT SHOES
Ballet is a beautiful and inspiring form of dance. It takes a lot of dedication and skill to master the art of ballet. As enchanting as it is, it’s also a great workout that strengthens muscles and burns calories. However, the beauty of ballet often overshadows the physical effects, which typically go unseen such as these dancer’s feet.

NEW JERSEY BEACH BEFORE HURRICANE IRENE VS. THE DEVESTATION OF HURRICANE IRENE AFTER
Hurricane’s leave devastating effects not only in our cities and homes, but on the beaches as well. The amount of trash thrown all over this beach in New Jersey is quite terrible.

NOAH THE CANCER PATIENT AND THE CANCER SURVIVOR
This is a startling yet beautiful image of a young boy named Noah. On the left he has cancer, looks pale, and has lost all of his hair. The Noah on the right is a cancer survivor, who has all his hair back, color on his skin, and a bright and happy smile. He may look different, but he still had the same look of hope.
MOP RETURNED FROM THE GROOMER LOOKING TOTALLY DIFFERENT
This sweet little fur baby, Mop, is probably more relatable than we think. How many of us have needed a haircut so bad that we nearly become unrecognizable after the haircut. Just like humans, dogs need some grooming too. When you look good, you feel good! Mop is just oozing with confidence now.
IN COMPARISON TO THE STANDARD BARBIE, THE BARBIE ON THE RIGHT WAS CREATED TO MATCH THE MEASUREMENTS OF THE AVERAGE 19 YEAR OLD IN AMERICA
As society evolves with the time, so does Barbie. We know that in today’s world the standard barbie does not represent the average girl, so Barbie artist Nicolay Lamm created a model Barbie using a 3D printer with measurements that closely matched the average 19 year old in America. As we can see with this comparison, it’s vastly different than the Barbie many of us grew up with.
“I CRACKED OPEN A STORE BOUGHT EGG AND A FARM FRESH EGG. I WAS SHOCKED BY THE DIFFERENCE”

It turns out that farm fresh eggs have about 140 mg-180 mg of cholesterol and store bought eggs have 200 mg of cholesterol or more. Yikes. If you need to control your cholesterol intake, but love eggs, looks like farm fresh is the way to go.

First and foremost, Froot Loops are a delicious, sugary cereal that look colorful and fun. Comparing U.S. Froot Loops to the European edition, aesthetically the U.S. wins. Not sure about taste though. The European version look a bit sad.
5 POUNDS OF FAT VS. 5 POUNDS OF MUSCLE
Five pounds of fat weighs the exact same as five pounds of muscle, but definitely doesn’t look the same as far as size. Muscle is much leaner than fat which is why two people might weigh the same, but have different body compositions.

LOUIE BEFORE AND AFTER BEING CALLED A GOOD BOY
