The Future of Portable Housing

Those wondering what portable housing actually means, imagine a house that you can move around in without any hassle of building one again to a place where you move. Isn’t that amazing?

We all experience that feeling when we just wish to move away to a place far away from where we reside. Most of the times we suppress that feeling for lack of options and most importantly the feasibility of such a decision. The idea of portable housing is based on these attributes of everyday human lives and challenges the idea of a conventional living space.

Let us discuss what the future holds for portable housing.

Popular, yet not so popular

Today, even though we encounter the instances of portable housing, the idea hasn’t become very popular yet. The reason for the same is that the jobs most of us are engaged in doesn’t allow us this space to roam around in a portable house and yet be accessible. On the other hand, what if you have a big family with you, would you consider living in a portable house? Probably not, so it gets restricted to holidays and special occasions. That said, the day is not far when we could literally imagine living in a portable house and spend our lives travelling and working. How so? Let’s see.

Work from home?

When you think of it, the culture of work from home is gaining importance these days, which in turn is saving a lot of money for the companies by keeping them away from huge office spaces. If the same get to grow bigger, the portable housing can very much become a common choice for our and the coming generation.

Increasing cost of living space

You can spend less than 10 percent on building a portable house for yourself in comparison to buying a new home. So, why not? You get to travel, you get to discover new places and you save big bucks for your family.

Portable Housing for all?

No! Portable housing is not for all when you think of it. Not everyone out there could manage their life in a portable house with kids, elders or any other family member if you want to have it for a long period of time. What you call an adventure, could be a nightmare for other people. But you can always try first and decide for yourself.

How Favorable is it?

Portable housing in an urban area is a problem, at least for now. The parking space that it requires and the constant torture of overpopulation in cities could be a big hurdle to your peaceful space inside the portable house.

Most of the people take their portable houses to open areas where there is hardly any problem with respect to space. It is more favourable and livable. Maybe down the line, the governments will find a way to make way for parking for portable housing, won’t that be incredible?

What to do now?

Do what you want to do. Even if you choose to come back for the unsuccessful adventure with portable housing, you can always dismantle it and back to living like you were and then again the day you want to take it again for a ride, then do it. Given that it is not a trend today, doesn’e mean that it isn’t worth it.

 

 

10 Most Expensive Failures in the History of Mankind

Never underestimate the stupidity of financial decisions. Not everyone gets a chance to be rich, but there are some who miss out the chance to be rich for they thought their investment wouldn’t be a successful one. So let’s check out some of such disasters.

1. Ronald Wayne & Apple Inc

Though Steve Jobs was always in the limelight, not so visible Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne were equally instrumental to create the company, Apple. Ronald Wayne wasn’t sure of his investment due to previous bad decisions and guess what, he wasn’t too optimistic with Apple either, which is why Ronald sold his shares in Apple for $800, just 11 days after the company was formed.

Had he not been so hasty, his shares would be worth more than £25 billion at current rates. Not such a wise decision Mr Ronald ha!

2. Mars Climate Orbiter

NASA Mars orbiter disintegrated in the atmosphere, costing the space agency a whopping $125 mn

NASA lost $125 million as its Mars Climate Orbiter couldn’t sustain due to a silly mistake, as a result, it disintegrated upon entrance into the atmosphere. The standard practice by NASA was to calculate force into Newton while the engineer who had built the aircraft calculated the propulsion force in pounds and no one even cared to verify this and just assumed that it was already taken care of.

3. Tsar Alexander II & Alaska

The United States was sold Alaska by the Tsar Alexander II for merely $7.2 million. Tsar Alexander was afraid that US would invade (oh US!) Alaska. Fearing the forceful takeover the Tsar decided to sell it in March 1867. Today, the resources that Alaska has is worth billions, thankfully Tsar Alexander II is not alive to witness his bad financial decision.

4. Unclaimed Lottery Ticket

Ouch! Imagine someone’s husband throwing the lottery ticket, the very same ticket that would have won the couple a fortune worth around £116 million. This happened in 2010 with a British couple. The woman whose lottery ticket won the prize, didn’t own the ticket anymore because it was thrown away in the trash by her husband. Wondering whether they are still married? 😛 well, let us know in the comment section!

5. Star Wars Franchise

Well, who can doubt the success that surrounds the Star Wars franchise, but it wasn’t so in the early days when 20th Century Fox thought otherwise and lessened the directing fees for George Lucas and handed over the director licensing rights too.

Today, if you were to calculate the money those rights would have bought,  it would be roughly £13 billion. Go figure!

6. Xerox and it’s Mouse

Ever wondered who created the computer mouse? Well, it was Xerox, but unfortunately, it could never cash in with that tool. In 1970 Xerox had created a computer that could be controlled by a mouse, but they never sold it. So who really enjoyed this technology?

Steve Jobs! Yup, he and other fellows from Apple Inc were invited by Xerox for which Apple Inc paid $1 million worth of Apple’s shares. Sometime later, Steve Job’s company launched the concept which in turn was a huge success.

Well if Xerox would have held the rights, they would be sitting on an incredible pile of £355 billion, but bad luck for them because their share value is somewhere around £9 billion, not bad but, you know….

7. James Howell and Bitcoin

James Howell, a citizen of United Kingdom had accumulated 7,500 bitcoins in his hard drive in 2009. What he couldn’t do was to handle it with care. So one day, this man ends up spilling a drink (stupid!) on the drive and then trashed it. Now in 2013, Mr James realised the worth of that hard drive that had the bitcoins, but it was too late. He made desperate efforts to locate it, but why do you think he is on our loser’s list?

In 2013, his bitcoins were worth £3.8 million.

Guess you already know what’s going to be listed here, so lets cut the crap and figure the figures.

Titanic Movie –  $200,000,000

9. Mc Donalds and Something they are up to

Just like not all eateries are going to make you money, similarly, not every experiment of an established eatery is going to fetch them money. Do you want a proof? Just McAsk!

‘Arch Deluxe Sandwich’, named after Arch sauce, became the Achilles heel for Mc Donalds when it debuted in 1996. The cost of this sandwich was costlier than the costlier than any other product and flopped big time. According to Business Insider, they are bringing it back, so let’s wish them good luck.

$200 million was spent on the advertisement by McDonald’s before they stopped producing it anymore.

10. DaimlerChrysler AG

Daimler AG, German auto giant know for making luxury cars like Mercedes Benz, created DaimlerChrysler AG along with Chrysler, that cost them around £23.2 billion. The investment ended up being fruitless for in 2007, DaimlerChrysler sold off over 80% shares for £4.7 billion to Cerberus Capital Management.

That’s all for now folks. It’s always fun to know about other’s losses until the day it becomes ours, so watch out.

Virtual Love – Why are millennial obsessed with it?

With increasing conglomeration of the virtual world into the real world, video games with live effects are becoming popular amongst every age strata.

Love and Producer is one such gaming application that has provided a virtual reality to Chinese women.

Gameslook launched the game on December 2017, which sought to ease out post-breakup blues. No sooner, it was a hit amongst the women who downloaded the application on their smartphones.

The game provides a platform to dispel the worries, the long-term disappointment that women usually feel after a heartbreak.

With the Adonis characters and the romantic ambience, one almost enters a dream world with open eyes. In this virtual world of Love and Producer, women manipulate the strings of relationships without any inhibitions.

Impressive reception

Since its launch, the Love and Producer game has been downloaded about eight million times. The number of online users per day is increasingly growing.

In China, one-third gamers are women, and this new launch has certainly proved to be a blessing for the developers. The number of users it has in such a meagre time has left all stunned.

Perhaps this was the trigger that caused this virtual beau to go viral on different platforms in other countries including India, Indonesia, Japan.

Characters lead the way

Love and Producer has four characters who in the end will become one’s Beau or Love Partner. Physically, the male figures are much like the direct descendants of the Greek god Adonis. With their charming personalities and perfectly sculpted physique, they are the perfect male partners in virtual reality.

The young CEO, Li Zeyan in Love and Producer has captured many hearts, and is naturally the most popular. His dominating yet appealing aura is designed to make the players go weak on their knees. Some fans of Li Zeyan even wished him on his virtual birthday by displaying a message for him on a skyscraper.

The other characters are also equally appealing and desirable, and have left Chinese women swooning. Sweet replies and their admiring approach have worked like a charm. No doubt, the game is becoming a trend in and outside China.

Escape from reality

The increasing difficulties in a real life relationship are forcing these women to become inclined towards the virtual world. Here they would not be judged for anything, and would be respected.

Women have found a temporary respite from the inevitable emotional attachments and the heartbreaks of a relationship. Goodbye incessant crying and depression!

Love and Producer is a relief from the harsh realities of the world, and so women are relying on those virtual friends and taking a chance with their hearts.

Global phenomenon

These virtual games are not only popular in China but all over the world.

My Candy Love, developed by a gaming company in France allows female players to develop a love life in a virtual college.

Love Story Games: Teen Romance is another popular android interface game from Serbia. It provides virtual high-school love relationships, made more enthralling by unique features and graphics.

Pixelberry, California’s famous web game developer, has created a mystery and adventure filled teenage love story – Choices. It is a virtual simulation app where the players can choose their partners and experience an amazing virtual love journey.

The first country to develop such passionate games is Japan. Otome Ghost Love Stories is one of the popular games from Hanabi Media Solutions, a game developer company in Japan. The love story between a woman and her ghost best friend makes it intriguing for the gamers.

The virtual world is helping the gamers lessen the stress of the real world. At least till now.

Male Sex Dolls – What’s in it for the women

When women were busy worrying from where to satiate their impending sexual desires, the finest sex dolls manufacturer, Realbotix gave them enough to breathe in relief. Recently the CEO of Realbotix, Matt McMullen had announced his ardent desire to launch a male sex bot in this year. In an interview with the Daily star online, he said: “We’re working on a male version of the robot AI. We’ll eventually have a male and a female platform available.”

He said that this time around, they are going for more advanced and realistic approach other than the voice and the desiring personality of the male sex dolls. Realbotix are going to launch male dolls with the typical ‘Bionic Penis’, the anatomy which they are claiming to be better than the vibrating dildos. In addition, when Matt was asked about the Penis size, he simply said ‘Sky is the limit’! No restriction in the penile width or length at the most.

The sex toys that came into the market for hormonal simulation weren’t enough for women to satisfy their raging hormones. That is why Dutch sailors invented the first sex doll in seventeenth century. Though the practice was not common around that time, at present time, these dolls are really a relief.

Sinthetics, a LA based sex doll manufacturer has recently added the domain of male sex dolls in their list of products. Gabriel, one of the famous creations of the company has become famous in LA after Karley Sciortino, a sex columnist for the Vogue and Vice released a documentary with him. In the 20 minute long ‘slutever’ video, she had covered the making of the first male sex doll. However, the main intriguing interest of the viewers lies in the last 8 minutes of the video where she had been found straddling Gabriel’s lap and getting intimate with the sex doll.

However, Cindy Gallop, founder of Makelovenotporn had mentioned in one of her interview that Realbotix’s to be launched male sex doll cannot provide a mindblowing orgasmic climax to the women with just a long penis fitted into a human- shaped hump machine. This claim of her was the perfect counter attack of Matt McMullen’s statement, “plug the robot in as long as you want”.

Having innate resemblance to a real life male partner with the sharp physique and hard and sturdy abs, these male dolls are becoming popular amongst women from different cultures and regions. The art of these dolls reveals a man in complete sense; the only difference is the striking absence of the pumping organ, heart. With the principle anatomies in its correct places, these are becoming a replacement of the ex’s and a companion for the single women.

Even some of the manufacturing units of USA are saying that with increasing developments in the anatomy and the physique of the male sex dolls, they might soon replace the real life male partners in the women’s life.

 

Five Tips to Propose Him This Valentine

Sometimes guys are too shy to express their feelings, especially when they are pretty conservative with love and relationships. In such a case, it’s the girl who has to take the first step to convey her feelings which are most probably similar to the guy. On the contrary, there are times when a girl is totally confused whether the guy she likes, likes her too. If she has failed to figure that out, then there is no other option but to propose the guy and wait for his reply. But before the reply comes your way, you can make your proposal look incredible and so amazing, that the guy is flabbergasted and falls for her.

To make your proposal more interesting, here are five tips to propose him:

1. Time to Do Something New

What is new? It’s something that you haven’t tried. Go out to enjoy some adventure sports and as and when you find the most appropriate time to disclose your emotions, just lay it out and surprise him. It will catch him off guard and of-course he was not expecting this, so you can give him a nice hug and tell him to take it slow, just in case he is too shocked!

2. Cook A Special Dish for Him

We all enjoy tasty and mouthwatering food and especially the ones coming from our lover. If you really wish to surprise your partner and propose him, then make it look like a cherry on the cake after an incredible dinner. If you don’t know to cook, then sorry to say, YOU NEED TO LEARN! Cooking is really important, it comes really handy for both, girls as well as boys and without a doubt, girls love to eat the food cooked by him as much as guys love to eat the food cooked by her.

3. An Honest Conversation

On a fine evening, sit next to him like you usually do and hold his hand while you look up into his eyes.   Make it look like any other conversation, but make sure your eyes are constantly looking at his and that your heart, mind and soul are all focused on him. Tell him what you feel about him, tell him why you like him, tell him what excites you about him and tell him why you love him before you finally take the step to come closer to him and put your heart out with those three most important words ever exchanged between two lovers.

4. His Hobbies

What are his hobbies? Does he love mountaineering? Or simply walking on the beach. Just as you enroll into some of his hobbies with him, take some time to think of the most beautiful moment in those activities. Just when you find that moment, you know what to do next.

5. On a Date

Not as simple as it may seem, even though the simpler the better. Proposing on a date has always been the most common one and I won’t say it has lost its charm, but yes, if you really wish to propose her on a date, you might have to plan the proposal with more intensity because to make things look unique, all you need is the mixture of proper ingredients.
