Forget Coffins – Organic Burial Pods Will Turn Your Loved Ones Into Trees

Organic Burial Pods

The idea of returning to where we originally came from appeals to many of us. This is an idea caught by a beautiful new burial method that originated from Italy. The Capsula Mundi by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel, developed organic, biodegradable capsule that will turn the deceased’s body into nutrients for a tree that will grow out of their remains.

After being encapsulated, the deceased is buried and either a tree or tree seed is planted above their capsule. The project’s site already has a number of trees to choose from.

An Italian company came up with an eco-friendly alternative to coffins

Instead of visiting cemeteries, mourners will be able to visit sacred forests

Each client will be able to choose their favorite tree

The people buried inside the pods will become nutrients for their chosen trees

Heartwarming Illustrations: Love Is In The Small Things

everyday love comics illustrations soppy philippa rice

A multi-talented artist, Philippa Rice, created a simple yet exquisite comics about everyday joys of living with someone you love. She uses the everyday ways on how we show love with our loved ones.

Soppy, Rice’s comic book, is the best to illustrate lovely pictures on different ways how we share love.

Sometimes, love can be found in the simplest things, like spending a blissful morning in the kitchen

You can be in the same room without having to do everything together

It is hugging each other accidentally while sleeping

Even the most mundane tasks are more fun when you do them together

Even shopping for food can be exciting

True love means putting everything aside just to hug

The biggest dilemma is often what to eat for dinner

Even if you’re feeling a bit blue, there’s always someone that will hold your hand

Love is about the little things

Happiness is when both of you read in bed after an exceptionally tiring day

Building IKEA furniture is like playing with LEGO when it’s just the two of you

Sometimes, you have to ask hard questions

Cooking together often becomes the most challenging and the most fun task

Even the tiniest problems matter to your loved one

It’s having those long talks in bed about everything and anything

It’s when you know your favorite cuddling positions

It’s having a favorite cafe, where only you two matter

The cold autumn wind can’t touch you because your heart always stays warm

Love means knowing when you need to say sorry

There is nothing more comfortable than falling asleep on your loved one’s lap

It is about exploring new things, even if it’s just your neighborhood park

It’s knowing that it’s not always rainbows and butterflies, it’s compromise that moves us along

As long as both of you are headed the same way…

…Everything will be just fine

I Take My Wolfdog On Epic Adventures Because I Hate To See Dogs Locked Away

Animals of all kinds can bring us so much joy, not only when things are going well, but also when we feel pain and are suffering. Loki’s Instagram is a product of the “hard-to-describe” emotion and he believes dogs are not meant to spend their lives in a house or backyard. We need to make memories with our dogs.

35 Hilarious Chinese Translation Fails

translation fails chinese

China is beautiful. However, the foreigners sometimes have some challenges in finding their way around the country. Due to language barrier where most of the time words are translated wrongly, you would end up getting the wrong idea and would cause laughter.

Here is a list of some hilarious translation fails in China. Check these out!

F*** Vegetables

“干菜” means dried vegetables and “类” means type. So as a whole, it should be the dried vegetables section. The translator was way too concerned about the Chinese character “干” which is also a slang for f***.” (Image credits: chinalert.com)

Top 15 Worst Logo FAILS Ever

logo fails

Most logos communicate ideas and it is believed to be one of the most important marketing tools – a good logo design. Through an effective use of a simple icon, this logo can leave a deep impression for the public.

There are four characteristics in a great logo design. The first and most important is to make it pop. Composition and color are essential to create posts and it should stand out as users scroll through their feeds. To make sure that you’ve not missed on anything when creating your logo and that if you can indeed manage to get the viewer’s attention, be sure the subject matter is in line with what your followers expect from your brand.

Here are some of the worst logo fails that possibly didn’t look so bad at first glance.

Logo of Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission

This is an actual logo designed in 1973 for the Catholic Church’s Archdiocesan Youth Commission. It even won an award from the Art Directors Club of Los Angeles.

A-Style Logo

A-Style logo was born well before the line of clothing – designed in 1989 and marketed in Italy since 1999. It was in fact an invention of his creator who began to attack Italian cities with stickers on a yellow background with A-Style logo (an example of guerilla marketing ), followed by other cities including Miami , Moscow and London. The newspapers and television began to be interested in the strange appearances of the logo, and soon the company started marketing their products under the brand A-Style.

Office of Government Commerce

The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) is an independent Office of the Treasury. Sometimes you need to shift your view to realize the error. www.ogc.gov.uk

Mont-Sat

Now you know why Mr. Satellite looks so happy. www.mont-sat.pl

Arlington Pediatric Center

Just checked their website, and apparently they have changed their logo to something more pleasing. It’s no longer a pedophilic center. Now it has something to do with crabs (look attentively at letter C). FAIL again or is it their marketing strategy?www.arlpedcen.org

Pepsi

While all this might look like a joke, it gets even funnier when you look at the Pepsi Max logo. It has nearly twice the caffeine of Pepsi’s other cola beverages. We’re not sure what drinking Pepsi Max is supposed to do for you, but based on what it did to this guys tummy here, we’d suggest staying away from it.

You’ll never look at the Pepsi logo the same again.

Clinica Dental

Computer Doctors

Locum

A logo for Locum, a Swedish property management company.

CatWear

Institute Of Oriental Studies

Kudawara Pharmacy

Kidsexchange

Junior Jazz Dance Classes

Olympic Logo of London 2012

Designed by Wolff Olins at an expenditure of £400,000 (almost $800,000) the logohas been met with expected ambivalence, and, in some unavoidable cases, hatred – actually, so far, in 11,550 cases.[1]
