70-motivational-quotes-for-those-who-have-lost-hope

We all make mistakes and often blame ourselves for it. Especially when we let someone down or don't keep a promise to ourselves. But did you know that guilt almost never helps you overcome a problem or admit defeat in order to move on? We humans are interesting and strange living creatures. We know that failure is part of our lives and perhaps a hidden gift from above. However, even small mistakes can make us very upset.

 

Do you know what helps you get through a difficult period, when it seems to you that the earth is about to jump out from under your feet? This is someone else's experience from life, which eventually became the basis for cool inspirational quotes and aphorisms that help perk up, forget about the negative and boldly, optimistically look forward.

40-unusual-products-that-famous-brands-have-released-and-surprised-us

Increasing the ways consumers can interact with a brand is often quite a challenge to implement.

 

Miracles of marketing: what unusual products were released by companies that the whole world knows

 

This usually requires companies to go beyond their comfort zones, search for non-standard solutions and competently implement them. One of the ways is for a well-known company to start producing (or rather selling) a product that is completely inconsistent with their image and direction of work.

 

For example, barbell pancakes from Samsung... or McDonald's playing cards. How do you like that? Maybe a Coca-Cola screwdriver set will surprise you more?

 

Read below, we have 40 unusual products that famous brands have released and surprised us. It doesn't look like them at all, but it's true!

World brands and their strange goods

 

Colgate

Main range: toothpaste

Experimental Item: Kitchen Entrees Ready Meals

The Colgate brand decided to be with us not only after meals, but also during. Ready meals under the brand of toothpaste caused only bewilderment of buyers. The expansion campaign failed.

 

Frito Lay

Main range: chips

Experimental Goods: Lemonade

Frito-Lay marketers thought: why not let consumers refresh and quench their thirst after eating their salty snacks? And they created Frito-Lay lemonade. But the buyers did not accept the new product. Either the chips weren't salty enough, or the lemonade wasn't tasty enough.

 

Bic

Main assortment: ballpoint pens, lighters, razors

Experimental Item: Disposable Underwear

The kings of disposable goods Bic decided to get even closer to their customers and created a line of disposable underpants. But the linen did not receive the attention of the audience, the production had to be stopped.

 

Zippo

Main range: lighters

Experimental Item: Women's Perfume

The world-famous brand of lighters Zippo has released a collection of women's perfumes in bottles in the form of lighters. But the fair sex could not get rid of associations with Zippo gasoline stuffing, and sales turned out to be miserable.

 

Harley Davidson

Main range: motorcycles

Experimental Item: Cake Decorations

Harley Davidson is not such a brutal brand as it seemed to many. The motorcycle icon produced not only bikes, but also branded bakery decorations. It is easy to guess that fans of the brand did not understand this move.

 

Dr. Pepper

Main range: soft drinks

Experimental Item: Barbecue Sauce

Dr Pepper technologists turned out to be bold experimenters and created a barbecue sauce with the signature taste of Dr Pepper soda. Buyers did not appreciate this, so the sauce was discontinued.

 

Cosmopolitan

Main assortment: women's magazine

Experimental item: yogurt

Marketers of Cosmopolitan magazine, popular among women, saw some analogy between yogurt and sex, they say, we need one and the other every day. Subtly noted! But this did not bring success: either the price of yogurt did not cause attraction among buyers, or the idea itself ...

 

Smith and Wesson

Main range: pistols

Experimental Item: Mountain Bikes

Known worldwide for its reliable and high-quality products, Smith and Wesson decided to produce not only weapons, but also peaceful goods - bicycles. Like many of the experimental products, their bikes were not appreciated. Pistols were more relevant.

 

Virgin

International conglomerate

Experimental item: wedding dresses

A risky move for Virgin, whose core business was air travel and banking, was to sell wedding merchandise. The name of the brand, of course, suits such products perfectly. But Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin, later admitted: "There were no sales at all."

 

Pond's

Main range: face cream

Experimental Item: Toothpaste

The American manufacturer of cosmetics and skin care products Pond's has released a new product - toothpaste. Despite the fact that all the taste tests were successfully passed, the customers did not like the pasta. Perhaps because of the strong association with face cream.

 

Evian

Main range: bottled water

Experimental Item: Water Bra

Evian decided to help consumers refresh not only from the inside, but also from the outside. They created a unique water-filled bra that you could even sunbathe in on the beach. But the customers didn't like it.

 

Cheetos

Main assortment: snacks with cheese flavor

Experimental Item: Lip Balm

Lays has been making salty Cheetos-flavored snacks for many years. Who would have thought that they would decide to release with the same taste ... lip balm! But, obviously, none of the buyers wanted to smell of cheese.

 

Gerber

Main assortment: baby food

Experimental Goods: Nutrition for Singles

One of the leading brands in the baby food market, Gerber, decided to take care of adults as well. They released a line of Gerber Singles purees for students and bachelors, all those who are not used to cooking for themselves. But Gerber's marketers didn't think about the fact that it's "not cool" for students to eat porridge in a jar, and for single people, an extra reminder of their marital status is very painful.

 

Hooters

Main activity: chain of restaurants

Pilot Activity: Air Freight

The global network of American sports bars Hooters in 2003 took up air transportation in the United States. The aircraft retained the orange and white design of the bars and the big-eyed owl symbol. On board, in addition to the usual staff, there were 2 Hooters-girls. But flights with busty girls, oddly enough, were not to the taste of the Americans. Flights were stopped in 2006.

 

Life Savers

Main assortment: lollipops

Experimental Item: Soft Drinks

The candy brand Life Savers wanted to expand its range and created a soda that was identical to candies in taste and color. But lovers of sweets did not approve of the new product.

 

Diesel

Main range: jeans

Experimental Goods: Wine

In the early 90s, Diesel acquired its own vineyards. They thought why the grapes should be wasted, and began to produce wine. Diesel brand wines began to be sold in branded boutiques. But they could not compete in the wine and vodka market.

 

Guinness

Main range: stout

Experimental Item: Book of Records

The well-known Guinness Book of Records was first published in 1955 by order of the Irish brewing company Guinness. The decision to publish the book was visited by Guinness management when they saw how fierce disputes can be in bars regarding the record of this or that phenomenon. The book has taken root and is published annually to this day.

 

Michelin

Main range: tires

Experimental Product: Restaurant Guide

Back in 1900, Michelin decided to make more than just tires and released the Michelin Red Guide. Initially, it was a list of various places that could be useful to a traveler, such as hotels, repair shops, eateries or paid car parks. Today, Michelin is the most famous and influential of the restaurant ratings.

30-facts-from-the-world-of-statistics-that-help-you-improve-your-knowledge

Millions of people are drawn to knowledge and want to know more. But when it comes to complex graphs and numbers, we tend to ignore the information. And as soon as it comes to statistics, we remember the boring lessons of mathematics and do not pay attention to such facts. But in vain. Do you know that statistical things are much more interesting and entertaining when everything superfluous has been removed from it, leaving only the facts?

 

Reddit users share interesting and entertaining statistics

 

We at Bemorepanda have collected interesting statistics that are related to different things in our world. And we think that it will be more interesting for you to learn about them than to watch the next series on the Internet.

 

1. About pilots

56% of pilots admitted to falling asleep in the cockpit.

 

Not only that, 29% of the pilots who woke up afterwards found that the other pilot was also asleep.

 

2. About walking

The average moderately active person takes about 7,500 steps a day. If a person maintains this average per day and lives to be 80 years old, they will walk 216,262,500 steps in their lifetime.

 

3. About names

Sofia and Alexander are the most popular names in Moscow. Unfortunately, there are no statistics for all of Russia by name. Available only in the USA. Mary and James are the most popular names in the United States for the past 100 years.

 

4. About work

85% of people don't like their job. This is the world average. In some countries, this figure is slightly better - for example, in the US, somewhere around 70% hate their job.

 

5. About the Vietnam War

More US veterans who fought in Vietnam committed suicide than died in the war. — Fewwordsbetter / Reddit

 

6. About cats

80% of orange striped cats are male. — kitkat_pro / Reddit

 

7. About seat belts

Wearing a seat belt correctly reduces the chance of a front-seat passenger being killed in a frontal collision by 45%. Seat belts save lives. People, damn it, buckle up! Also, don't forget that car airbags are more likely to cause injury than prevent it. Especially when seat belts are not fastened. — danthemanning / Reddit

 

8. About movement in space

  • Raise your hands and clap your hands.
  • Wait one second, then do it again.
  • If you could measure the distance between the first and second claps, it would be over 800 kilometers.
  • This is because the Earth is moving around the Sun, the Sun is moving around the center of the galaxy, the galaxy is moving through the Virgo Supercluster, and the Virgo Supercluster is racing through the Universe. When you sum up all the speeds and compare the result with the cosmic microwave background (which is the closest we have to a universal frame of reference), it turns out that in one second you, along with the Earth and other space objects in space, moved 800 kilometers.
  • In the time it took you to read this, you moved farther in space than you have ever moved in your life. — RamsesThePigeon/Reddit

 

9. About the Chinese

If you take the entire population of our planet and calculate the average person, it turns out that this is a 30-year-old Chinese. — ohazltn/reddit

11. About sharks

Sharks of ancient trees. Sharks are at least 400 million years old, while trees are about 350 million years old.

 

Another fun fact: when it comes to evolution, sharks are one of the most endangered species of marine animals. Thanks to "adaptive radiation", these marine animals are able to effectively mutate, perfectly adapting to a variety of habitat conditions. Adaptive radiation allows you to use new food sources and avoid enemies. As a result of this adjustment, there is an increase in species diversity in a short period of time. Modern sharks evolved as a result of adaptive radiation that occurred during the Jurassic period, about 200 million years ago. One of the newest modern sharks are the hammerhead sharks, which first appeared about 50 million years ago. corvettee01 / Reddit

 

12. About our time and the modern world

By almost every important indicator and statistic, the world today is better suited for a normal life than at any time in the history of mankind. — keenly_disinterested / Reddit

 

13. About animals

The tallest known giraffe (George) was 5.8 meters tall.

 

The largest crocodile ever measured (Lolong) was 6.17 meters long.

 

To get an idea of ​​the size of such a crocodile, think of the tallest giraffe you have ever seen, and then add a little and you have the longest crocodile.

 

Herpetologists agree that there are probably more large long crocodiles in nature. They are just hard to catch to measure. — FlorenceCattleya / Reddit

 

14. About rich people

The top 1% of the world's richest people have more than twice as much money as 6.9 billion people.

 

And the 8 richest people in the world have as much money as the poorest half, 3.6 billion people. — Munninnu / Reddit

 

15. About birthdays

If you are in a group of twenty-three people, there is a 50 percent chance that two of them share the same birthday.

 

If you are in a group of seventy people, this probability rises to 99%. — RamsesThePigeon/Reddit

 

16. About poverty

3-4 billion people in the world earn $2.50 or less a day. — chelseatys/reddit

 

17. About ecology

25% of air pollution in California comes from China. — cOOlio-pasta/Reddit

 

For reference: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that nearly 25 percent of the particulate matter in the skies over Los Angeles on certain days came from China. Some experts estimate that China accounts for a third of all air pollution in California. Experts have found ozone, carbon monoxide, mercury and particulate matter from Asia in the air.

 

18. About USA

America is home to approximately 5% of the world's population, but US prisons hold 25% of the world's total prison population. — Gaarakotq / Reddit

 

19. About heroine mothers

The world record for the number of children born to one mother is 69. She had 16 pairs of twins, 7 triplets and 4 quadruplets. And this record belongs to a Russian woman who lived in the 1700s in the Ivanovo region. — TnekKralc / Reddit

 

20. About the war

3% of all living on Earth in 1939 died in World War II. — paul99501 / Reddit

 

It is important to know and remember: according to the latest estimates, 26,600,000 people died in the USSR alone. This is approximately 13.52% of the total population of Soviet Russia in 1939.

 

21. On the movement of the continents

South America is moving away from Africa at about the same rate as human nails grow. — stickmanDave / Reddit

 

The speed of movement of the continent at the moment is about 20 millimeters per year.

 

22. About water

99 percent of the earth's water is unusable for humans and many other living things—only about 0.3 percent of our fresh water is found in the surface waters of lakes, rivers, and swamps. More than 68 percent of the fresh water on Earth is in ice caps and glaciers, and just over 30 percent is in groundwater.

 

It seems incredible that the water that supports all terrestrial as well as aquatic life on our planet is actually so scarce. With these numbers of statistics comes the realization that we must use this resource very wisely.

 

23. About mosquitoes

It would take about 1.2 million mosquitoes to suck all the blood out of a person, each of which must bite at least once. — pm_me_anythingg_sfw / Reddit

 

24. About the human body

Have you ever wondered how fat disappears from a person? And it doesn’t matter why: from playing sports or from starvation. It turns out that most of it (86%) comes out through breathing. The remaining 14% leave our body through the water in a natural way. — PleiadianJedi / Reddit

 

25. About physics

The size of a dust particle is somewhere between a subatomic particle and the size of our Earth. — reddit.com

 

A subatomic particle is smaller than an atom, and atoms are damn small. So the next time you see a grain of dust, think about how huge it is compared to, for example, the same neutrino, or how small it is compared to our planet.

 

26. About the Sun

It takes about 170,000 years for photons from the core of the Sun to reach the convection zone of the photosphere, where they are ejected further into space. In other words, the sunlight we see is hundreds of thousands of years old. — mattk1017 / Reddit

 

27. About Marriage

If you and your spouse are divorced and one of you (or both) has more than one failed marriage, your marriage has a 93% chance of failure. — reddit.com

28. About playing cards

If you shuffle a deck of playing cards well, you will create a hand that has never been and probably never will be again. This is because there are 8.1x1067 possible layout combinations for 52 cards. It takes more time than our universe exists to roll every possible order of cards. — RamsesThePigeon/Reddit

 

It has been 700 years since playing cards were invented. Since that time, all the cards in the world have been shuffled and laid out approximately less than 1.546X1020 times. Thus, the chances that in one of these shuffles they were shuffled in the same order that you see in your spread is less than 1 in 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 (1 in 1047).
