Mr. Toilet's House

Yes, that is a teel and glass, two storey, toilet-shaped house! It was unveiled this past weekend, in South Korea. Funds raised from renting the house will go towards providing sanitary toilets in developing countries, which in my opinion is a very cool idea, and certainly unique!

Here is a news snippet on Mr. Toilet's House:

SEOUL (AFP) — A South Korean lawmaker and public hygiene activist on Sunday opened his 1.6 million dollar toilet-shaped showcase house designed to campaign for cleaner loos worldwide.

The two-storey home, complete with a nameplate reading "Mr. Toilet's House", is now ready to be occupied, according to owner Sim Jae-Duck.

Billed as the world's only toilet house, the 419-square-metre (4,508-sq-foot) concrete and glass structure rose on the site of Sim's former home in Suweon, 40 kilometres (24 miles) south of Seoul.

Sim, 74, who told AFP last month that his mother gave him birth in a bathroom, has actively campaigned for "clean and beautiful" toilets since his service as Suweon mayor from 1995-2002.

His campaign has since turned many of public restrooms nationwide into facilities boasting paintings, fresh flowers or even small gardens.

Sim's house was completed before the Korea Toilet Association, which he funds, holds a forum in Seoul later this month to launch the World Toilet Association to take his campaign worldwide.

Again, what a really cool idea! Now if there were only a rooftop pool or a rooftop slide to a swimming pool below! :p

Good afternoon my peeps! I am not an eBay seller yet, but I have had an eBay account for a few years now, and I am an eBay shopper particularly around the holiday season, and just after when I have found you can get some amazing deals on holiday gift items now up for auction. The keyword though in that last sentence regarding my eBay activities is "yet" I am not a seller yet, but I have been considering giving it a try for some time now.

FreeRice A Viral Marketing Success Story

Have you heard of FreeRice before? I first read about it on the BBC earlier today while surfing the net, and wanted to tell you about this fun game that you can play online, and help the world's hungry at the same time! How cool is that! B)

Here is a snippet from the BBC:

An internet word game has generated enough rice to feed 50,000 people for one day, the UN's World Food Programme (WFP) has said.

The game, FreeRice, tests the vocabulary of participants. For each click on a correct answer, the website donates money to buy 10 grains of rice.

Companies advertising on the website provide the money to the WFP to buy and distribute the rice.

FreeRice went online in early October and has now raised 1bn grains of rice.

That is enough rice to feed 50,000 people for one day, the WFP said on Friday.

Full BBC Article Here

The fact that word of mouth via the net has made FreeRice so popular has earned it the right to be called "a viral marketing success story" in my humble opinion. :D

Cash Advances & Payday Loans

Here on Nuttin' But Pimp I have written about Payday Loans, and/or cash advances in the past. Regular readers will recall that I have related to you how I have turned to payday loans here in Canada when times were really rough a few years back, and I am not ashamed to admit that to you. After all, almost everyone of us has or will go through some financial difficulties at some point.

A cash advance or payday loan can help out when you are strapped for cash and need to pay off a certain debt or bill by a deadline, or could use some extra bux to top off your groceries. Provided you understand the terms of the payday loan, and are confident that you will be able to pay it off when needed to they can really be a financial lifesaver.

Not all payday loans are created equal though. If you are thinking about applying for a payday loan or cash advance then you might want to check out the link I have added in above. It is to a website that can provide you with different quotes for loans up to $1,500 dollars. The money can be electronically deposited into your account, and you can set up a pay back schedule.

Cheers!

Thank You

In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,
though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

To all those that served, and are serving. Thank you.

Travelling To France

There are so many wonderful, and enchanting reasons to visit France. The Eiffel Tower as pictured above at sunset (how romantic oooh la, la), the wineries, the louvre, Versailles, and the Rhone Alps just to name a handful immediately spring to my mind when I think of France. And France hotels are known to be amongst the top ranked in the world.

Paris hotels are available to suit just about every budget, so a trip to the "city of lights" may be more cost effective then one might initially think. And there is so much to do there, whether you wish to go shopping or take in some of the world class museums or how about partake in a romantic river cruise....sigh....

Of course France is much more than just Paris. Nice is a very popular tourist destination within France, and Nice hotels can be booked at bargain prices even those situated in the centre of the city near the famed Promenade Des Anglais and the sea. Just lovely.....

Happy Travels! :D

Douglas Adams Predicted This Could Happen...

Have you ever used an online translator to communicate with someone? I have used them, but only to try to decode certain web pages, phrases etc. After reading an article entitled "Online translator sparks diplomatic row" I wondering if I should use them at all....read on for a snippet:

An email sent to the Dutch foreign ministry by a group of Israeli journalists has sparked a diplomatic row, thanks to an unreliable translation by Babelfish..

The journalists wrote a set of questions before a planned fact-finding trip to The Netherlands, running them through the online translation tool to turn them into Dutch.

The beginning of the email read: 'Helloh bud, enclosed five of the questions in honor of the foreign minister: The mother your visit in Israel is a sleep to the favor or to the bed your mind on the conflict are Israeli Palestinian.'

The translation was flawed as Babelfish confused 'ha'im', the Hebrew word for 'if', with 'ha'ima', which means 'mother'.

Makes you wonder what other misunderstandings may have arisen over the use of Babel Fish eh!
