Water bowl to slow down bus drivers

Water bowl to slow down bus drivers
A bus company in China has launched a new 'drive safely' campaign - by hanging big bowls of water next to their drivers. The Longxiang Public Bus Company in Changsha, Hunan province, says drivers must drive gently to avoid spilling any water. Bus drivers are expected to ensure the bowls are still full when they finish their shift. And the company warns drivers that CCTV footage will be studied to make sure they do not top up the bowls with water. (Source)

Eco toilet to fertilize the field

Eco toilet to fertilize the field
Once upon a time, there was a lazy farmer who hated the job of fertilizing most of all. One day he invented this poopy. By moving the chair a foot or so each day, he was eventually able to enrich the soil of his entire acreage while he did his morning Sudoku. (Source | Via)

Striped painted donkeys to compensate the lack of zebras in the zoo

Striped painted donkeys to compensate the lack of zebras in the zoo
There were two crowd-pulling zebras in the Marah Land Zoo, who unfortunately died of hunger. Since they were one of the main attractions of the zoo, which boasts a dozen animals, and there was no money to replace the dead animals, the zookeepers were very concerned, until they came up with an unusual solution. Now there are two white donkeys dyed with black stripes to delight Palestinian kids at a small Gaza zoo. With their long ears, drooping heads and sleepy eyes, the impostors probably would not have fooled the zoo's only lioness. But the effect achieved by the zoo owners' dye job looks not so bad — to the unpracticed eye, and from a distance. The two female donkeys were striped using masking tape and women's hair dye, applied with a paint-brush. A genuine zebra would have been too expensive to bring into Israel-blockaded Gaza via smuggling tunnels under the border with Egypt, around $40,000 to get a real one. Gaza's Palestinians are impoverished by their isolation under an Israeli embargo against its Islamist Hamas rulers, who refuse to give up armed resistance against the Jewish state.

Zip holder to prevent your fly coming open

Zip holder to prevent your fly coming open
The problem of your fly accidentally coming open really only dates back to the invention of the zipper. But even if it's not an 'age old' problem, it's still a problem, particularly if it's ever happened to you. So this simple solution created by Lisa Sjövall seems so obvious that you have to wonder why it hasn't been thought of or even incorporated into pants already. The ZipHolder is basically an elastic loop that fastens to the pull tag on your zipper. When it's done up, the loop is placed around the button on your fly which prevents the zipper from accidentally coming open. (Source)

A tree urinal to solve ‘urgent' problems and reduce chemical pollution

A tree urinal to solve ‘urgent' problems and reduce chemical pollution
Although at first glance this concept does not seem to be fair for women's needs, the good news is that the P-Tree can reduce the queue at the porta-pottie. The inventor suggests that it can be hooked up to a central sewer system, but an onsite infiltration system would be a great way to safely dispose of the liquid and nourish the trees with nitrogen at the same time! This would reduce the chemical and waste processing involved at public events. As for using the P-Tree at your next happening – we suggest looking into your local indecent exposure laws first.

A traveler's phrasebook t-shirt to help communication in trips with different languages

A traveler's phrasebook t-shirt to help communication in trips with different languages
No one wants to be the stereotypical tourist when traveling, fumbling through phrasebooks in an attempt to find the right thing to say so you can find your way around. So here's a rather simple and elegant solution to the language barrier, created by Art Lebedev. All you have to do is get a local's attention, point at what you're looking for and then point to the question mark. (A confused shrug should work too.) It's probably a good idea not to wear something over the tee though, as grabbing a stranger's attention and then proceeding to undress in front of them may not be a graciously accepted custom around the world.
