5 Awesome Days to Celebrate in 2014

This world is as crazy as can be and you can become aware of this fact only if you browse online searching for weird, funny and crazy days (usually meaning awareness events and celebrations) that people hold dear to their hearts. While we are used to national and international holidays, be them religious or having a social, medical or political feature to them, mankind seems to celebrate other whacky stuff, like objects, animals and historical events.

All year round, all over the world, each month and every day has some special meaning in some corner of the planet. Now, given your own culture and traditions, you may not be very interested in celebrating the Camcorder Day, while others take very seriously the world-wide manifestations related to Cancer Awareness Day, Earth Day, Autism Awareness Day and so on. But for a change of perspective and for your general knowledge on world’s events, let’s take a look at five awesome days to celebrate in 2014.

1. Extraterrestrial Abductions Day – 20th of March

Now this would be Fox Mulder favorite celebration day of all times. If there would be a real Fox Mulder or aliens abducting people. Oh, wait, maybe there are…  It is hard, if not impossible to trace back in history the origins of the celebration or the mastermind who invented it, but for fun’s sake, don’t forget to watch the sky for strange lights, UFO activity and spending time with your abducted buddies. Maybe you can all watch ET or some X Files special marathon and sign anonymous petitions that demand full disclosure on Area 51 projects. May be fun.

2. Lost Sock Memorial Day – 9th of May

Whoever invented this was a genius. It’s odd nobody identified the brilliant mind who finally came with this idea. We all know socks leave us, from a reason or another and we mourn their loss just as we’d mourn fallen comrades on the battle field. So this is not only one of the best and most awesome days to celebrate in 2014 (as it is UNIVERSAL), but a good opportunity to say goodbye to the missing ones and release the now solitary soldiers out from your drawers. You can even host a ceremony and accompany the victims on their way to the trash bin with songs of sorrow. It is a sad day and everybody should pay their respects to the lost socks and the ones they are about to throw.

3. Cheer Up the Lonely Day – 11th of July

We all know somebody who is lonely. A friend, a family member, a colleague. Being there for somebody is a generous act of kindness and it shouldn’t happen only one day a year. But this particular day, we all should be near somebody who has few friends or relatives, is single or just lost someone close. Loneliness is a terrible feeling and having a cheerful, pleasant and inspiring presence next to you is the best thing ever. So choose among the most awesome days to celebrate in 2014 this particular one and pay forward your kindness and love to the less fortunate. This great idea seems to belong to Mr. Francis Pesek who invented and promoted it.

4. International Talk Like a Pirate Day – 19th of September

talk like a pirate day

This one dates back to 1995 and is attributed to two men – John Baur and Mark Summers – who spiced up their racquetball game with some Pirate – Talk and then decided this should be a celebration day for all those who feel like pirates in their hearts. This is the day when you can ask all the time “Why is the rum gone?” without looking or sounding suspicious and answer with Aye or Nye, or express your feelings with weird sounds and roars.

5. National Chocolate Covered Anything Day – 16th of December

Melted Chocolate

Are you a chocaholic who dreams every night that Willy Wonka retired to an exotic island and left you with his entire legacy in chocolate? Good, cause we are too and we can’t wait to be December 16th to have everything edible (and a few things …less edible) covered in rivers of creamy dreamy chocolate. We don’t know who exactly invented this day and why is it only “National” instead of universal, but we are glad somebody thought we should cover anything in chocolate, at least once a year. In the other 364 / 365 days, we just eat the chocolate as it is.

These are only five awesome days to celebrate in 2014 and there are at least 300 more. Pick your favorite one and let everybody know about it! Savvy?

As a new year begins we are full of hope and expectation for the coming 365 days. Whatever you do, don’t go and spoil the positive vibes by buying one of the worst calendars for 2014.

4 Weird Food Flavored Ice – Creams Around the World

While it’s not summer yet, most of us still enjoy a rich flavored ice-cream from time to time, dreaming of the upcoming warm sunny days when the cold creamy dessert will once again rule over all our sweets options. Most of us, however, are used to and prefer some old fashioned, classic ice – cream flavors, from chocolate, to pistachios, from tantalizing vanilla, to refreshing forest fruits, sometimes topped with whip cream, caramel sauce and sprinkles of any kind. However, there are some folks who in the last years became addicted to new flavors, as the imagination of ice – cream makers seems to know no limits – flavors that very well mimic food or entire dinner feasts. There are at least four weird ice – cream types that taste like food and the puzzling fact about them is that they record an enormous success.

Perhaps this is not such a bad idea, no matter how odd it seems (after having a steak to have a pizza flavored ice – cream, for instance). Imagine you are dieting hard and french fries, pasta or juicy tenderloins are out of the question. But you are craving and secretly dreaming of fat burgers, oversize pizza slices and rivers of chocolate. What can you do to satisfy your nerve – shattering cravings and still follow your dietary plan? Instead of sneaking to the fridge and devastate it, you get yourself a nice food – flavored ice – cream without feeling too much guilt, as even weird food flavored ice – creams have less calories than a real hotdog. So let’s see together 4 weird food flavored ice – creams and pick our poison for the summer or for dieting in any season.

1. Lobster ice – cream, U.S.A.

So you feel like eating lobster, but let’s face it, this isn’t something everybody affords to have on a weekly basis. But to satisfy your craving, you can go to Bar Harbor, Maine, and have Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium signature lobster ice – cream, a creamy dreamy delight that has little to do with chocolate, but a lot with luxury sea – food.

2. Foie Gras ice – cream, France

Ah, the French. These culinary arts masters that aim to surprise and tease foodies everywhere with their magnificent creations. If you had real French foie gras and loved every bite, fret no more, as ice – cream artisan Philippe Faur managed the impossible: give ice – cream the foie gras taste it deserved. Among the most weird food flavored ice – creams ever, this one is a signature dessert dating back to 2005. It is quite popular and if you ever want to try it, go for the original.

3. Spaghetti and Cheese Ice Cream, Venezuela

Spaghetti and Cheese Ice Cream

Now if you happen to visit Venezuela, you should know that you can actually taste spaghetti and cheese ice – cream at the Heladeria Coromoto, home of the world’s most weird food flavored ice creams. Spaghetti and cheese is perhaps the most mundane choice of all, as you can also have tuna ice – cream, ham and cheese, chicken and rice, steak and so on. Your taste-buds will explode in pleasure, while your calories count will still stay on the charts. What can be more brilliant than that? There are around 900 different weird food flavored ice – creams in that place and you can be the most peckish of people, it’s impossible not to find something to your liking.

4. Oyster ice – cream, Japan

By the looks of it, people seem to get very fond of sea – food flavored ice – cream and where else to go for the powerful oyster taste, if not Japan? Namja Town, to be exact, a place where oysters are not the only dish to inspire ice – cream, but are certainly the most popular. In Namja Town you can also find beef tongue ice – cream and a lot of other interesting flavors, but the oyster type actually has small bits and chunks of oysters in the ice – cream. Wow! Have a lemon with you, just in case.

Don’t believe peoples’ creativity stopped here. When it comes to weird food flavored ice – cream, you can have tens of other choices, depending on your soft – spots and cravings. From raw horse flesh flavored ice – cream (this one can make any human’s skin crawl at the idea) to goat cheese ice – cream, the possibilities seem endless, exciting, downright odd and even funny. But they are popular indeed and some places actually turned the cities they’re in into touristic hot – spots.

The World’s Most Unbelievable Billboard Fails

Billboards are great for giving us useful information as we drive by; such as what a burger looks like or what a giant person wearing underwear would look like. However, the worst billboards fails around also give us something to laugh at as we walk or drive past.

6 Valentines’ Day Cards that Speak the Truth Nobody Really Wants to Hear

You think it’s too early to address the sensitive subject of the Valentines’ Day? Maybe, but if you weren’t born yesterday, you know what’s coming: endless pink ribbons, rivers of chocolate, online gift ideas lists and tons of heartfelt, warm, loving cards. And the funny batch of cards for the trolls, of course. Now there is a lot of debate surrounding this glorious day of celebrating love, as some condemn it for turning into a shopping frenzy which has less and less to do with the actual love, while others are happy to show affection through well – thought gifts, carefully chosen cards and thoroughly – planned surprises.

But since we aim for an early start and you will have your fair share of suggestions and ideas regarding presents, personalized messages and party places you won’t want to miss this year, we collected a few Valentines’ Day Cards that speak the truth as it is and, in all honesty, we don’t recommend you to use if the other party doesn’t have a rock-solid sense of humor. Why did we chose these particular ones? For your inspiration only and for you to admit that sometimes, in the darkest corners of your minds, you thought about sending at least one of these. Ad because we appreciate honesty. And people who are brave enough to speak their minds. There. Six Valentines’ Day Cards that speak the truth nobody really wants to hear.

1.When your love equals addiction

Now besides the not-so-smooth-language, this Valentine Day card says everything very plain and very simple. Now you can’t assume that all back – alley hookers are addicted to crack, so you’d like to be more specific so discrimination accusations to not follow you back home and stab you in the back, but this is love in one of its most honest moments. If your partner has a clue on the effects of crack, the message will be even more appreciated. Effects, not overdose symptoms, there’s a difference.

2. Because everybody is special, so let’s just be random!

You know that saying that goes like “You’re special, just like everybody else?” Now to be “special” meant something back in the day, now it turned into one of the most mundane and boring compliments. Yeah, we are all cool. So how about being even cooler than cool and acknowledge the fact that we are just random? And chickens. Chickens is a must. Don’t develop further.

3. Honesty never hurt a relationship. Oh, wait…

Come on, this is a true piece of artwork in the stash of Valentines’ Day cards that speak the truth. What? Don’t you like to hear somebody appreciates your rack? Of course you do! Oh, you mean it’s wrong to be in a couple where only racks matter? Boy, if all women in all the world would have put a cent aside every time they thought about that, we would’ve eradicated famine decades ago.

4. It is healthy for the relationship to talk about love and sex

Oh you kids, everything you think about is doing each other! Oh, so young, so full of life, so honest! If you receive this and doesn’t make you laugh until you fall off the chair, you should work on those humor skills of yours.

5. Because it is OK to resent Valentines and be open about it. Especially when the feeling is mutual

What’s pink ribbons when you can have bacon? And what’s wrong with celebrating the glorious feeling mankind was blessed with if not with a healthy, shared – in – bed bacon centered breakfast? Love goes through the stomach and it’s not just a man thing, you know…

6. Because somebody has to say it!

Yes, some ladies are a bit confused when it comes to what they want and what they need (and men are twice as much if we are to tell the truth) so somebody should come forward and speak the unspeakable words. And this is quite a ballsy love statement which can get both ways, so if you are still pondering if you should or shouldn’t put your heart and mind on the plate, use this Valentines Day card. Good luck!

Now we hope we didn’t offend anybody and you had a few laughs with these Valentines’ Day cards that speak the truth. If you have your own examples don’t be selfish and share them with the rest of the trolls! A huge “Thank You” and “We love you” to our sources.
