Sometimes we get so used to everyday life, it becomes hard to imagine that things can be different. But they can. Whether it's out car getting scratched in the parking lot or our poop splashing in a public toilet so loud, everyone knows what we're doing, if there's a problem, there's a solution. Bored Panda has collected a list of genius ideas that have the potential to make some our day-to-day struggles go away, and while you in particular might not benefit from all of them, you'll still probably appreciate the effort that went into making them a reality.

The number is rather clever as well. The way it's written, it's a visual mnemonic device, meaning it helps the human memory to remember it. 888-3737-888 - with the differing numbers in red. Useful for someone who's in a hurry and can't write it down.

My Local Vet Has A Sign And Candle For When Someone's Pet Is Dying

My Local Vet Has A Sign And Candle For When Someone's Pet Is Dying

As heartbreaking as it is to say goodbye to your pet, it's what most of them need during their final moments. "I beg you DO NOT LEAVE THEM,” a message shared by Hillcrest Veterinary Clinic in South Africa read. "Do not make them transition from life to death in a room full of strangers in a place they don’t like. The thing you people need to know that most of you don’t is that they search for you when you leave them behind. They search every face in the room for their loved person. They don’t understand why you left them when they are sick, scared, old, or dying from cancer and they need your comfort.”

This Park Has A Swing For Wheelchair Users

The freefall that these swings provide is about 4.3 feet (1.3m) and they can safely take on a load of up to 4,400 pounds (2,000 kg). Moreover, the rope pull included within the design allows those with upper body mobility to swing themselves independently.

These Lines Go Up The Wall So You Can Park Perfectly In-Between The Lines

These Lines Go Up The Wall So You Can Park Perfectly In-Between The Lines

Everyone wants to drive until it's time to park in a cramped corner. This particular one was found in Seattle, under the Amazon Go store. And even though the driver on the left didn't back backwards, it actually has a lot of benefits. Most importantly, reversing into a parking space gives you greater control and makes it easier to manoeuvre out the space. Avoiding reverse parking usually leads into much more difficult situations, trying to wiggle your car out of a tight space when you parked front-first.

This Toilet Flushes By Using Your Foot

This Toilet Flushes By Using Your Foot

This mechanism is located in a toilet in Mexico and you don't have to be a germaphobe to appreciate it. Unsanitary public toilets can lead to gut infections, lung and skin infections as well as STDs. If a stool doesn't look clean but you really need to use it, consider using tissue paper to open its door, using the toilet seat cover, and if there isn’t one, cleaning the toilet seat with a tissue paper before using it or even hovering closely above the toilet.

If you wash your hands really well, you don't need this. You still need to touch the door to get out of the stall. Same hand that flushed touched the door.

And the door knob is probably more full of germs than the button, because the toilet is usually cleaned quite often, but very few people bother to clean and disinfect the door knob, or the light switches.

People are funny! Although I understand the need to be clean, I can't understand this kind of obsession. They don't want to press the button to flush the toilet... yeah, Ok. There are things which are far dirtier!!! They don't want to touch the button, but they touch the door knob, the tap, the thingy that holds the toilet paper... and they probably flush without closing the lid, which lets the tiny drops of water, pee and everything else jump in all directions! 😂😂😂 Stop being irrational; germs are everywhere! Wash your hands frequently and stop worrying so much!

This is the precursor to sensor flushing toilets and urinals which most major cities have now a days. Hands free for almost entire visit. Water facets, soap dispenser, hand dryer and toilets. Only thing you've got to touch is yourself and the door handle which by the way, is the most contaminated surface in the entire bathroom.

I realize this is more of a problem for women, but: please don't hover. All that does is increase the chances of messing the seat for the next person, who then needs to hover to avoid a mess, and now we have a worsening cycle of gross until the cleaners fix it. You'd have to sit on the toilet in a really weird way to catch anything from it; if the seat is unsoiled, you are reasonably safe.

Every one saying "Wash your hands" Faucet handles are touched with dirty poopy hands in a public restroom, so you turn the water on and wash your hands, your hands are now clean, but you have to touch those same dirty poopy handles again to turn the water off. So now its as if you never washed. Not all public restrooms have automatic water faucets on the sinks. And what about opening the door to leave? Do you think the door handle is clean? Nope, dirty poopy just like those faucet handles.

My Grocery Store Started Selling Overripe, Discount Bananas With A Recipe For Banana Bread On The Bag

This solution comes at a time when it's needed the most. Americans waste 150,000 tons of food each day – equal to a pound per person. Also, fruit and vegetables were the most likely to be thrown out, followed by dairy and then meat.
By the way, interestingly enough, banana bread is actually a somewhat young dish. It first became a standard feature of American cookbooks with the popularization of baking soda and baking powder in the 1930s.

Supermarket Trolleys In Sweden Have A Map Of The Supermarket

Supermarket Trolleys In Sweden Have A Map Of The Supermarket

It's about time we got something like this. Rick Paulas of the Pacific Standard has compared the current design of many grocery stores to casinos. "There are lights and sounds that re-focus attention every micro-second, carpet on the ground to offer cushion for our feet, an open-flow space from the slot machines to the poker tables to the roulette. But what's more important is what's not there: clocks on the wall, bathrooms, escape routes. The reason is obvious — can't spend money if you're not present—and they point toward why supermarkets attempted to get their customers lost."

This Menu In An Italian Restaurant, Is Shaped Like A Circle Showing You What The Type Of Pizza Would Look Like

This pizzeria is located in Prague, Czech Republic. According to the person who took this photo, "it's literally above the metro station of Chodov on the Red/C line!" If you still can't find it, just look for a sign that has a hotdog on it and says "Pizza." Ye, we know.

Reportedly, this test "track" is located in a Leguanos store which sells the so-called barefoot shoes, really bendy shoes that supposedly make you feel like you're barefoot.

If a 25 years old man is caught building lego instead of walking on it, what is the punishment? Asking for a friend.
