It’s official — the best seat on an airplane is 6A, the window seat a few rows back on the left side on a typical Boeing 757. 

British discount travel site Skyscanner.com asked 1,044 passengers from 46 countries about their favorite row, side of the plane, seat (window, aisle or middle) on planes and compiled their seating preferences.
The first six rows of the plane were the most popular. Also, a majority of passengers — 60 percent — preferred window seats over aisles and 62 percent of passengers liked even-numbered rows better than odd, for whatever numerological reason.

Chart of the Day: From ‘Mad Men’ to Medicare, Measuring U.S. Health Care

This week marks two major events. One is the second anniversary of something that’s not that popular: the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. The second is the return to television of something that’s far more popular: Mad Men. The clear solution is to combine them in one awesome infographic.
There’s some good news. As everyone knows, levels of smoking have fallen precipitously. Cancer is more survivable. More women are doctors. But most of the news is bad. Alcohol consumption, shockingly, is actually higher now than in 1965. Obesity is higher. Diabetes is more prevalent. The most important thing to watch is the top line. It shows dramatically why some sort of health-care reform that controls costs is a pressing need for the nation. The hard part is just figuring out how that works. Frankly, we’d just as soon sit back with a full highball glass and the Mad Men season premiere.

One in six American adults is a binge drinker, consuming alcohol in excess about four times a month, according to a sobering CDC report. In the infographic above, you’ll find the percentage of population classified as binge drinkers.

The study — which defines binge drinking as five or more drinks in a short period of time for men and four or more for women — breaks down the nation’s 38 million binge drinkers by a variety of measures, including geography, age and income level. Wisconsin is the state with the most binge drinkers at 25 percent of the population, while Utah, home to the teetotaling Mormon church, comes in last at less than 11 percent.
