What did we all do before the internet came along to give us information like this? If you've ever wondered where you can find, say, a statistical analysis of how the number of Crayola colors has increased from 1935 to the present, wonder no longer.

Using this infographic, blogger Stephen Von Worley postulates "Crayola's Law": the number of colors available from the venerable crayon company doubles every 28 years. At the current rate of growth, there will be a whopping 330 colors available in the year 2050. We can only hope!
