Japan is a place of wonder. From its obsession with cleanliness and efficiency to its willingness to install robots in unlikely places, most people who visit feel like they’re in a whole new world.
Some of the innovations here are brilliant and are sure to make you wonder “why don’t we have that?” – others might just seem silly. But one thing is for sure, Japan is full of creative inventions that are lightyears ahead of other countries.
And, of course, people love to say “they have that it _____ too!” Well, sure, but ALL 55 of these extra cool things can be found in Japan.
So scroll through and marvel at everything from refrigerators that come to you to all the ways the Japanese are obsessed with umbrellas.
1. They have face covers in fitting rooms so you don’t get oil or makeup on clothing you haven’t purchased
2. Parents can find baby holders in public bathroom stalls so they can use both hands
3. Some of their toilets let you wash your hands over the tank so it can be reused in the next flush
4. Instead of having janitors, Japanese students tidy their schools to learn responsibility and respect for their surroundings
Tattoos aren’t for everyone. But for those that choose to get them, they’re a beautiful way to show off your love or passion about something or simply a way to use your body to display art. However, some people seem to forget that tattoos are forever.
Here are 55 tattoos that are so cringe-worthy it almost hurts.
At first you want to laugh…then you want to cry…and then you’re laughing again.
1) Jon Sand?
We don’t know if this person is an actual ‘Game of Thrones’ fan or not but they certainly have a sense of humor about the cult-like program.
2) Permanent argyle socks
This guy clearly likes rocking his tattoos in public for all to see – even though they’re absolutely hideous. Permanent argyle socks? Why though?
3) This is why you don’t plagiarize
“Some guy tried to copy my tattoo artist’s work, nipple included!” said one Reddit user. Now he gets to live his life knowing that his nipple is on some other man’s arm. And that guy knows that he has some other guy’s nipple tattooed on him. Wow – what a circle.
4) It’s actually really quite good…
Even though this M&M Eminem tattoo is absolutely ridiculous, the artist actually did a really great job. We’re sure whoever has this tattoo gets some laughs at parties.
5) Don’t just live luxury…become luxury.
This guy is apparently a big fan of Louis Vuitton. So much so that he tattooed the iconic print all over his entire skull.
Weddings are stressful and sometimes they bring out the worst in people. They can also be full of mishaps.
After all the planning and worrying, it feels like there’s so much at stake on your wedding day that it’s hard to relax.
And let’s face it, sometimes those bad things happen and you can either laugh them off or let them ruin your day.
Most of the brides you see here have recovered since their wedding snafus, although we hope there was someone there to comfort them and tell them that it was all going to be ok.
We sure want to give them a hug after looking at these photos.
1. White on white
This photo went viral to the point that the bride was forced to explain that her mother-in-law was actually a really nice person who had just bought the most budget-conscious dress she could find, not realizing her faux pas.
We still can’t believe someone would do this and not realize their mistake though.
2. Falling for you
These two fell not only once but TWICE during their first dance!
Talk about going head over heels!
A bruised bride is that last thing you want.
3. Welcome to the family
This dog knew exactly what was going on and wanted to make sure his new dad realized that mom was still bulldog territory.
So he peed on her dress during the vows.
If rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck, then is falling in a lake EXTRA good luck?
We just really hope this didn’t happen before the ceremony.
5. There goes the bride
Speaking of wedding day water fails, maybe we should just all agree to stay off docks for photos.
This would have been a nice photo had everyone not almost drowned.
