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.

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?

World brands and their strange goods

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
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.
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.
Main assortment: snacks with cheese flavor

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.
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.
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.
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.
Main range: jeans

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.
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.
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

For reference: 25 million people and about 50 million kangaroos live in Australia.
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

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

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

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

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

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).
