Japan 1987

Image
From the late 80's to the early '90s, Japan had enjoyed massive babble economy as well as was the biggest booming nation at that times, like today's China.  The video uploaded on YouTube is taken by a foreigner and let us have a glimpse into the past. The booming economy, however, didn't last long, as it ended with the asset bubble burst, causing Japan's major economic depression for more than 20 years on.  Even today, some reminiscent of the country's heydays despite the fact that the nation's economic influence in the global context is dwindling unstoppably.

TIME: Difference Between the States And the Rest of the World

Image
The left one is American version, and the right one is issued in the rest of the world.
Time is one of the most influential magazines in the world and has been disseminating millions of news to not only the States, but also the rest of the world.  The latest issue, however, caused a ripple in the world because of the fact that while the U.S. version of Time focuses on health-care, Time issued in the rest of the world covers current European crises that headlined world-widely. Some suggest that Americans don't care about what is happening in the outside of their nation, or intentionally avoid covering topics related to "Occupy-Wall-Street" movement. What do you think?

Roller-Coaster-shaped Walkway: Magic Mountain

Image
Heike Mutter, a German artist, created an unique art, which no one ever imaged; Magic Maintain is designed to look like a roller coaster. Even though there is no ride, people can experience like riding in a roller coaster.
With hundres of steps set on the walkway, people can climb up and down.
In every night, LED lights set on the banister are tuned on, and the artwork, itself, gave us another look.

The Sperm Bike

Image
The Seattle Sperm Bank brought their incredible idea into shape; the Sperm Bike is the one, which grubs attention with its large-sized body and the bulbous portion in the front. The idea, first, was conceived in a sister organization of the bank  in Europe, and was brought to the State, as they generate the custom-made bike. With its too unique features, it becomes a great promotion tool for the organization as a result.

Real-life Jessica Rabbit Resembles Oba-Q in Her Rips-form

Image
Kristina Rei, a 22-year-old woman living in St. Petersburg, Russia, made her dream come true with her strong obsession with the size of her lips.  Since when she was four, she has not satisfied with her small lips as well as believed that she, herself, is ugly.
The obsession with her lips, finally, led her to have the first injection on her lips with 100 silicons on her lips when she was 17-year old. Her final goal is to be like Jessica Rabbit, who is her ideal woman to be; and she unstoppably keep having injections on her lips, as she has been enduring the countless silicons on her lips.
Even though, from her point of view, she is getting beauty more and more, her features are nothing other than odd to many.
Despite the fact that she is aware of what people think, she actually doesn't care about it; rather, she is going to take more injections on her lips as well as going to make her nose, boobs and even ears look like the cartoon character.




Kristina's lips are obviously big…

NO "Thank You"

Image
Recently, a British network conducted a pole on 2,000 people living in U.K about whether to use a phrase "thank you" frequently or not and found the fact that 40% of them answered "No."
Instead of saying "thank you," they say "cheers," "cool," or "Ta (thank you); and some of them even use "Merci," "Fab," or "Garcias," which are not even English words.
Will they say "Arigatou (Japanese)" someday in the future?
