6 Ways To Recycle Rubber

http://snipurl.com/te1pc

“Tire recycling is on a roll. Only a few decades ago, the world had little or no idea what to do with the hundreds of millions of scrap
tires littering the planet – hogging landfill space, collecting stagnant water for disease-carrying moquitos to breed in, and causing epic flagrations that can burn for years.

Now we live in eco-friendlier times. Recycled tires are (somewhat fittingly) being used to line roads, to make playgrounds safe, to prop up houses…and as these six examples show, to add quirky style to our homes.”

A kiss – a simple act that can convey a diverse array of meanings. A kiss can be intimate and private, or meant for public display, it can convey love and affection, or simply provide comfort. Its use as a greeting is under fire in our current climate of H1N1 fear, as the French government has begun encouraging citizens to forgo “la bise”, their traditional cheek-to-cheek kiss, for health reasons. Gathered here are 33 recent photos of kisses expressing greetings and farewells, congratulations and joy, respect and, above all, love.”

Masters Of Cargo

Looks like most of these pictures were taken in developing countries and mostly Asia by the looks of it.

When the highway laws aren’t really enforced too strictly then some people’s ingenuities get a little out of hand. By the way, those pics of the Indian trains are just outrageous, but I’m betting your average Indian person would not bat an eyelid at those kind of scenes…

Vintage Ads

Translation, Sex Appeal and Innuendo…

“American advertising today has lost some of its edge—not Schick, of course. But a look back at the 40s, 50s, and early 60s shows an innocence and boldness that brings about a good laugh today. I wonder what references in today’s ads will play out in 2030? From sexual innuendos to brash examples of tomfoolery, the following ads are just a sample of the misplaced pun today.”
