All 4 Avengers Infinity Saga Films Visualized in a Single GIF
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most beloved superhero film franchise ever conceived and the four-film Avengers Infinity Saga is easily its crowning achievement. With Avengers: Endgame closing up the saga in 2019 to glowing reviews and box office records, it became the highest grossing superhero film saga of all time.
Today’s animated visual is a little bit out of the ordinary, but we couldn’t resist sharing. Alistair Williams, of AW-Illustration.com, (who shared the animation on Reddit) chronicles each of the Infinity Saga films in a creative and beautiful way. As each frame of the animation passes, every nook and cranny fills with the iconic moments and critical plot points of each film. The result is really fun and makes us want to stop what we’re doing to re-watch the whole MCU!
Check out the animation below:
If you’re like us and want to see all of the tiny, masterfully illustrated details in a higher resolution, we’ve included a static version each film’s visualization individually below.

Our favorite detail: The hidden nod to the post credit scene with The Other and Thanos. We were so young and innocent back then; we could have never known what Thanos had in store for us.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Our favorite detail: Just like the city of Sokovia in the film, the platform is cracked and rising into the air.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Our favorite detail: It’s going to have to be a tie between Star-Lord pointing his quad blaster at Thanos and the platform itself slowly disintegrating away.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Our favorite detail: Just as it was my favorite moment in the films, it’s the resurrected heroes emerging from Doctor Strange’s inter-dimensional portals, just in time to save the day.
How to Pick a Perfect Watermelon
It is almost watermelon season! That means venturing to the grocery store or market and to choose the most perfect, juicy, ripe, flavorful specimen from the bunch. How do you choose the perfect watermelon? How can you tell a watermelon is ripe? Eagle Eye Produce has created this simple and helpful visualization of how to pick the most wonderful watermelon to make your summer dreams come true:
- In addition to the visual guide, Eagle Eye Produce also provided these tips for choosing the perfect watermelon:
- Choose a watermelon that is uniform in size – both oval and round are okay. The important thing is to avoid irregular bumps.
- Choose a watermelon that is heavy for its size. This usually indicates a sweeter, juicier fruit.
- Look for a creamy orange field spot. A field spot is where the watermelon was resting on the ground. The darker the spot, the longer the watermelon was on the vine. This maximizes flavor.
- A white field spot may be a sign that the melon is not quite ripe.
- Larger webbing or “sugar spots” means that the melon is seeping out sugar and could be an indicator of a sweet taste.
- Dark, dull melons are typically ripe while shiny melons are unripe.
There are many wonderful ways to enjoy the ripe melon you just picked out! It is so important to stay hydrated while having fun in the sun (especially if alcohol is involved), so here are some infused water recipes to try out with watermelon and other tasty fruits and herb
The Ultimate Visual Guide to Boy Scout Patches and What They Mean
The Boy Scouts of America was established in 1910 – ever since, invaluable qualities such as integrity, courage, teamwork, and survival skills have been cultivated and challenged in the youths who join. Boy Scouts can earn a myriad of patches that represent their achievements, ranging from simple colored shoulder loops to indicate the level of scouting the Scout has reached to individual merit badges in skills such as swimming, first aid, environmental science, archery, communication, citizenship in the community, wood carving, and even family life! One thing I love about patches of all kinds is how they translate a broader concept into a small design, much like logos! The team at WizardPins.com has created this fantastic visual guide to Boy Scout patches and what they mean:

There are so many cool designs on here! I am especially fond of the Wood Carving, Camping, and Arrow of Light patches. There are over 135 merit badges that Scouts can earn. How are Boy Scout patches earned? For merit badges, a scout must complete requirements with their badge counselor that help demonstrate a skillful understanding of the badge’s subject. For example, in order to earn a Hiking merit badge, the Scout must take four 10-mile hikes and one 20-mile hike with written plans and follow-up reports. I am actually shocked that a 20-mile hike is necessary – that is a colossal challenge even for a well-seasoned adult! It even says that Scouts are permitted to stop for just one meal. Goodness gracious! Way to go, Boy Scouts.

Located in the city of Anchorage, this park provides endless hours of recreation for visitors.
The second-largest urban park in the world is Gatineau Park in Gatineau, Canada. At 89,205 acres, this popular park is located just outside of Ottawa and features trails, lakes, and caves to explore.

Third on the list is Table Mountain National Park, which is located in Cape Town, South Africa. This park is 54,610 acres and includes many recreational opportunities including visiting the land-based African Penguin colony which is one of the only colonies in the world.
