Amazing Concealed Wheelchair Lift in the UK

Amazing Concealed Wheelchair Lift in the UK

Well, it appears as if the British Empire has figured out how to accommodate disabled people without destroying the architectural value of a building with a gigantic ramp. The Blog for Boys applauds anyone who turns their efforts and intellect to making the world a better place for their fellow citizens. So, good job, Brits. Now if you could only open a dental college, you’d truly be living in paradise.

Look Out Below! The Ruyi Bridge

Look Out Below! The Ruyi Bridge

Lots of visitors are terrified when they walk over the bridge. The combination of a 450-foot drop and a glass floor is more than the average person can handle. Me, I’m not afraid of heights, so I’d be fine. I am, however, afraid of widths, so I can never go to Nebraska.

I’m not gonna lie, The Citroen vehicle here looks pretty nifty, especially those headlights.

I think it’s also how they do everything at Peugeot Citroen HQ: cram stuff in so you need less space. Employees would often jam stuff into their desk drawers. They even bought more clutter to cram into their desks if they didn’t have enough clutter. I mean, they were really committed to this business practice.

Unfortunately, Peugeot Citroen bought so much clutter for their offices that they almost went bankrupt and had to sell out.

Never Go Without Instant Heat Again

Never Go Without Instant Heat Again

Imagine what you could do with a big lighter. You could start a campfire in mere seconds. You could also bring this bad boy to a concert and show how much you love the band. Or you could light all 68 candles on your mother’s birthday cake and cook the frosting a little.

Just imagine these things, of course. Don’t actually do them.
