If you've learned anything about life at this point, it's that it's not easy at all. There are risks, complications, and plenty of decisions to make. But it's not necessarily an unsalvageable nightmare either. There are ways to deal with the ups and downs that life throws at you. You just have to see beyond the confusion and figure out what's what. To that end, we introduce you to Matt Shirley, a genius who has been creating charts to unravel the mysteries of life in order to make better decisions. Best of all, this genius has decided to share his super creative charts on Instagram. But you certainly won't need a master's degree in order to figure these charts out. These brutally honest and oh-so accurate charts are so easy to understand that even a kid could figure out. Who knows? It might even help you to solve some of life's problems too.
When you peek into Matt's window this Halloween, you'll likely see this chart in his home, which suggests that a web slinger's life is also quite a lonely one this coming holiday.
We never imagined that chapstick would beat out heroin. It must be that cherry flavored one that's got everyone hooked. But where's Netflix, chicken nuggets, or cheese on this chart?
We're willing to bet that some of you are probably toeing the orange line, but then you say something silly like the Taco Bell's Chihuahua's slogan, "you quiero Taco Bell," and suddenly you're on the green line.
The truth is that no one really cares about videos of fireworks or concerts, because it's always better to experience these things live. So, you can either stop shooting videos of these or just keep them to yourself.

Life's all about pros and cons, especially when it comes to finding the right venue for your first date. This chart makes it so much easier, giving you a greater chance of landing a second date.
At this point in your life, you'd love to find someone you can hold a decent conversation with who is also easy on the eyes. But you're so tired of looking that option number 3 would almost be a release from your ongoing quest to find a partner.
It seems like everyone follows a similar pattern, which involves a great deal of soul searching and not a lot of washing. This might explain why some of us still stink after we finish showering.
In both scenarios you'll end up drinking heavily. Ironically, you wind up wishing you were with someone if you were single and wishing you were single if you were in a relationship. Oh! How's that for confusing?
You only get three possible options here and choosing wisely may mean the difference between getting there, suffocating from terrible B.O., or getting lost in the middle of nowhere.
In this bizarre world of online shopping, you might discover that no means yes and yes means no. But at least you don't have to worry about being murdered if you say yes.
In this chart, you learn that the only thing car alarms are good for is to ensure that you and your neighbors end up experiencing chronic insomnia, but at least your car won't get stolen.
It's safe to say that most people would totally relate to the orange line because we tend to panic, even if we didn't do anything. But acting normal when a cop stops you is just overrated.
You buy, you lose them and buy again. Then someone steals them... probably someone you know because you bought expensive ones and they loved it. And the cycle continues until your last breath.
