Life, in Diagrams

January 20th, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized

Behold these inspiring diagrams posted by Will Schofield, whose blog seems to specialize in mindbending graphic design.

What DadWagon likes about these schematics, made by Tom Lewis for the CRM textbooks Life and Health (1972) and Developmental Psychology Today (1971), is that they unveil all the deepest mysteries of fatherhood. There are many more in Will’s post (which was also syndicated at TheRumpus), but these three examples below clearly illustrate:

  1. how to make your child terrified of rabbits
  2. why your child comes home from school crying every day
  3. what process eventually makes your child as dead to the world as you are
