Any time you’re faced with a problem, surely you’ve racked a few stupid ideas through your mind before you found a practical solution. But once in awhile, it seems those outlandish solutions might just actually be solutions. Here’s 15 times those crazy ideas actually worked. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. Goggles For Dogs Do dogs really need an accessory? Surely all the cutesy clothes and even collars we place on them is enough. However, as ridiculous as the phrase “dog goggles” seems for anyone, it’s a business venture that’s worked out in the dog goggle manufacturers favor. The inventor of the product known as the “doggles” is Jill Doyle and while most would quip that these things look ridiculous, the goggles protect your dog’s eyes from the UV rays of the sun. Since dogs need to run around outside as much as possible, some owners would like to take the extra precaution. The company that sells doggles makes around $5 million in revenue every year and also includes products that are prescribed lenses for dogs with visual impairments. 5. Dropped and Shipped Speaking of conscientious dog owners, let’s take a look at the opposite side of the spectrum. Dog owners in the Madrid suburb of Brunete, Spain were said to have a bad habit of not picking up after their dogs. This problem was becoming such an issue, that efforts were made to stop this problem. And instead of just issuing fines, officials found a better way to to deal with the unsanitary problem. A group of volunteers would look out for the dogs and their owners, bag the poop themselves, and then send it in the mail back to the owners. The practice has said to be highly effective, with the number of dog droppings around Brunete being considerably fewer. 4. Fisherman Wearing Masks A lot of animals aren’t particularly stupid, especially a beast like a Bengal Tiger. However, just because they’re not stupid doesn’t mean they’re super aware of human devices, even one as simple as a mask. Fisherman in the Ganges Delta were dealing with Bengal Tigers sneaking up on them as they tried to do their job and it was becoming a dangerous problem. Instead of hurting the tigers or just moving the a different location, it seemed all that was needed was a prop. To scare away tigers approaching them behind, the fisherman were instructed to wear these masks of a human face, which seemed to trick most tigers into thinking a human being had spotted them. Or the face on the mask is just that displeasing that it just scares them off. 3. Bottled Air You’ve probably heard about people complaining about bottled water, how it’s all a sham and that clean drinking water should come free anyways. So then think about the concept of bottled air. Now that you’ve thought about it for a bit, just know you can buy said product. Vitality Air was created by a Canadian startup company who sell cans of what is said to be “100% pure Rocky Mountain air” for about $32 each. Sounds crazy, sure, but the little novelty product has made loads for itself and it’s said places with higher air pollution are the locations of the biggest buyers of the bottled air. 2. Shade Balls The phrase “shade balls” could mean a lot to people if you weren’t aware of context. But what they actually refer to are the millions of plastic balls that were dumped into the Ivanhoe Reservoir in Los Angeles 2 years ago. The reason stems down to the continuing drought that the state of California has been going through. Placing the 4 inch thick plastic balls in the water would help shade the water from the hot sun, reducing rapid evaporation. Thus, things like bacteria and algae would be less likely to form, and certain chemical substances wouldn’t be able to be produced. Pigs With Munchies Stigma against legalized marijuana has slowly been falling away, especially not that places like Washington State have implemented it legally. But farmers in said state have also implemented the plant, and not in the way you probably think. Instead, cannabis has been incorporated into the pig feed and it’s said to increase the weight of the pigs to up to 30 pounds more--for reasons you can imagine. Eating this new feed has made the pigs here bigger than pigs in other parts of country usually are, which only means good things for the farming trade in Washington.

Why is this nation so unique and different from the rest of the world? It seems we’ve found the answer – they have an incredibly cool education system and unique teaching methods! Watch till the end – there is a small but brilliant bonus for you. Let’s start with a unique Japanese method in the schools for developing creativity in kids. We believe that the whole world needs to adopt! It’s called “Nameless paints.” Japanese designers named Yusuke Imai and Ayami Moteki created an unusual set to teach kids colors and painting. This fantastic set won the 2012 Kokuyo Design Award. Let’s see how it works. “Nameless paints” includes ten tubes that don’t have color names such as “yellow,” “blue,” or “green.” Instead, there are only spots of a particular color or colors on each tube. As you can see, the spots are also different sizes. The designers’ aim is to change the way kids think and learn. They want children to understand what shade they will get if they mix certain colors. For instance, a child looks at the tube with two spots: pink and blue. He doesn’t know what color hides inside. He squeezes the tube and gets… purple color! So, as a result, the kid learns that the same amounts of pink and blue paints create purple. Here’s another example – a tube with a big blue spot and small pink one. It means if you mix a small amount of the pink color and a large amount of the blue color, you’ll get dark-blue color. Interesting, right? As you can see, each tube hides a particular color inside. Pink, yellow, blue, purple, red, dark green, dark blue, orange, light-green, and black. However, to get one of these shades, the child should think about which colors create it. As a result, they learn how to create new colors and how to mix them. It’s an easy and fun way to understand the color theory. Recent studies have shown that free thinking is an attribute that a person can acquire over time, and the schools play the most important part in developing creativity. Now, here’s the bonus – 10 brilliant features of the Japanese education system the whole world needs to adopt. The success of the Japanese culture is very simple: they put a lot of effort and time in the education system trying to make it not only useful but also fun. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/
