These mega corporations control the output of almost everything you buy; from household products to pet food to jeans. According to this chart via Reddit, called “The Illusion of Choice,” these corporations create a chain that begins at one of 10 super companies. Note: The chart shows a mix of networks. Parent companies may own, own shares of, or may simply partner with their branch networks. For example, Coca-Cola does not own Monster, but distributes the energy drink.

I was so excited to read about the new type of “Martian blueberries” that the Opportunity rover discovered today. Blueberries are the crunchy iron-oxide spheres, found on the surface, that possibly contained microbes. I got to wondering is there a Mars Bar with blueberries yet? When I Googled “Mars/ blueberries” the answer was no. So if Mars Bars wants to release a freeze-dried blueberry candy bar with pop rocks in honor of the discovery they could just drop a large check in the mail to me here at WOW, and we’ll be happy to promote it.
