Have you ever been ‘in the shit’, late at night, and wondered who’d come to your rescue if you had to get into the land of Maydays and rescue baskets? Thanks to the incredible work from the folks at Contemporary Issues in Geography and this monster of an infographic, wonder no more! This poster lists every aerial asset operated by the USCG, and like everything at the CIG blog, it’s compiled with official government information and some seriously smart nerds.
Be careful though – if you like military and geopolitical information, you will find yourself getting lost in the CIG catalog for hours…just like we did!

The coolest toy we’ve seen on the inter webs in ages, this living global wind map is moveable and spinnable and zoomable anywhere on the globe. That would be cool enough for hours of contemplation, but author Cameron Beccario and team are constantly adding new features too; you can check winds all the way up through the stratosphere and play with multiple projections of the world. For extra holiday fun, plug it into the big screen between games (or Cast it if you’ve got one of these cool new toys) and wow your family with the trippie snow globe. Keep tabs of new developments on their Facebook page or in the SA thread. Once again the Pixies are our title inspiration.
