Funny Faces Pictures

Living in today's society can be a stressful environment. Every day we have so much to do and our jobs and chores can sometimes make us feel low. Often people may turn to unhealthy solutions such as alcohol or other drugs to escape or help them feel better. It's very easy to turn to such unhealthy solutions as they are methods that society has subliminally taught us and promoted. How many times have you heard from someone who was upset; "I am off to the pub" or "I really need a cigarette". These types of behaviour have become common in today's society and it is a very sad state of affairs. Even on television the common cure for the blues is to turn to alcohol and there are hundreds of movies where a sad person turns to drink, cigarettes or drugs. Surely there are better ways other than damaging our bodies and our health to make ourselves feel temporarily better. But what are there alternatives?

There are lots of great ways to relieve stress in healthy ways. One of my favourite ways to relieve stress is to look at funny or hilarious pictures. There are literally hundreds of websites out there that have great collections of very funny pictures that can cheer you up to no end. A popular favourite of lots of people is to look at funny animal pictures with captions. The cuteness of the animal combined with the funny caption attached to it has always been a good recipe to make someone smile. Just looking at some funny pictures for thirty minutes can really help elevate and change your mood.

It is very easy to get caught up in with our stress and keep soldiering on and never taking any time for ourselves. This can eventually lead to more problems by increasing the severity of the issue and could even lead to a mental break down. Sometimes we need to let go of our problems and realise that all things will one day pass. As well as taking the time to de-stress with some funny pictures you could also: spend some time with your kids, take a walk in the park, have a long hot bath, reconnect with an old friend or watch your favourite movie.

There is evidence to suggest that smiling can have great effects on your mood and health (not to mention prevent you from getting frown line wrinkles). When you smile endorphins and other chemicals are released into your brain which make us feel in a much better mood. You can even try doing it right now. Force a smile and make sure it is a big one. Hold that smile for at least 10 seconds and you will notice that you feel better than you did before you smiled. Isn't it strange that such a simple thing as using certain muscles in our face can make us feel so different.

In summary it is important to smile and be happy as it can cause a chain reaction. When were happy we smile and when we smile we feel happier. Sometimes it is just a case of 'breaking the smile barrier' and getting those first few initial smiles in to set us off on a good foot. I can highly recommend taking the time to laugh and smile at funny pictures to aid you in the quest of happiness and stress relief.

Funny Foods

In my opinion, a good laugh is just as important to personal health as eating right and exercise. In fact, if I had to list the top three healthy habits, they would be green tea, broccoli and laughter. Laughter improves our overall state of mind and sense of satisfaction with life, raising our energy level and causing us to lean less on unhealthy "comfort" foods. With that in mind, check out these funny food quotes and remember them the next time you spend some time in your kitchen. You can also register to receive jokes and other funny stuff by e-mail from our team here at Recipe4Living.

Share these quotes with your loved ones, sneak them into lunchboxes, and write them on unsuspecting chalkboards and whiteboards everywhere. Laugh it up!

She had always warned them to wave a plate of rice and peas before her nose when she was in her coffin, to make certain there was no mistake; for if a breath of life was left in her, she would sit up and eat, but if she smelled the hopping-john, and did not stir, then they could just nail down the coffin and be certain she was truly dead. Carson McCullers (The Member of the Wedding, 1946)

All I ask of food is that it doesn't harm me. Michael Palin

The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found. Calvin Trillin

I don't like food that's too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I'd buy a painting. Andy Rooney

Baby Pictures,

Going to a professional photographer to get that set of perfect baby pictures is nice. It's a moment to capture your baby while they're still young. But it doesn't fully capture the child. The setting is fake and just for show. Home pictures speak a lot more than professional in this way, but most people are too afraid that they can't take good enough pictures worth hanging up or sending to friends. Hopefully this article will point out some key aspects to put a more professional look on the average day snapshot.

No matter professional or not, clothing is the first thing to consider in taking a portrait. This is no different for a baby picture. It's a very open kind of category in that you have so many choices obviously. For the most part it will probably be casual and just wanting to make the baby look cute. Sometimes it might be more themed.

The important thing to remember is that the outfit is the second thing the viewer will notice. The first is obviously the baby's face. It is because of this that you want to make sure you pick something that compliments your child's personality. This may sound odd since it's a baby we're talking about and the personality isn't quite there fully, but you will still be able to tell a general sense of where to take this picture.

Next you have to take in to account the setting. This this is a home picture, possible settings are the house, the rooms, a crib, a chair or couch, or the back/front yard. It is wise to take into account how the setting will go with the clothing and emotion trying to be expressed. You may want a more comical picture, or a more relaxed, or just a very casual.

The background also needs to go with the clothing. This is important so the picture seems whole and nothing clashes. Even simple things like wallpaper or blankets behind the baby in the picture can look odd if there is too strong of a contrast with the outfit. Try to find a setting that goes with the clothing, or clothing that goes with the desired setting.

Lastly you should take props into consideration, if any are being used. This can include such things as furniture, toys, and other things in the picture other than the baby. They can be nice little hints about the baby, like adding his/her favorite toys, favorite blanket, etc. Most people might worry that it will take away from the picture but little things like this can enhance it.

Furniture like a chair or couch can also give a more interesting environment. Obviously this requires the baby to be a bit older and able to sit up on his/her own in most situations. What can make a picture like this more interesting is the variety of textures and colors the furniture can add. A nice shine and color of a wooden piece can enhance other colors, like brown and blue, and even bring out the eyes more.

The final key here is perspective. This means that you should take into account the angle that the picture is taken. This may sound too artsy or too detailed for many, but it's very simple. You want angles that compliment the baby. This is the case for any model. You don't want angles that make limbs look odd, or make the body too short or elongated. Most people just think straight on is the only way to go. It's safe, but can be overused. Try more side shots, above shots, just shots in general that give a different look to the child. A lot of the times, once the baby is more active and moving its limbs and head around with more dexterity, you will notice many opportunities to try these different perspectives. Just keep in mind that the idea here is to make even simple snapshots more memorable to the moment.

You don't need to be a professional photographer to make home pictures look more than just snapshots. You just need an eye for detail, some thought and creativity, and a little fun. The whole purpose stays the same: you are capturing some form of essence of your child and preserving it with a photo. There are so many vital moments in the earlier months alone that you don't want to waste them with poor photos that will leave you wishing you could do it over again.

Cars logos

A car logo is a symbol or text that represents the identity of a particular type of car. Today, the car market is flooded with different brands and models. Car logos will help you to distinguish one brand from another. Logos serve as unique visual marks of identity of a company. They help companies gain product recognition in the world market. In general, logos reflect the individuality of the company. Logos should be simple and thoughtfully designed to appeal the target customer. As cars are speed lovers? vehicles, their logo should have a strong virile look.

Commonly, three types of car logos are used - symbol logo, text logo, and combination logo. In symbol logos, special designs or symbols are used to represent the brand. Popular car companies like Citroen, Ferrari, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Renault, Porsche, Subaru, and Koenigsegg have symbols for their logos. These symbols have ingrained deep into people?s mind all over the world. In text logos, the initials or the names of the companies are written in a particular style. Text logos are used by many famous car companies such as Fiat, Mazda, Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, and Volvo. Combination logo is a blend of symbols and texts. They place symbols and text in juxtaposition to make memorable logos. Popular car brands like Alfa Romeo, Audi, Maserati, Skoda, Lamborghini, Panoz, Cizeta, Lotus, Rover, and BMW make effective use of symbol-text combinations.

Car logos come in different shapes, sizes and colors. Car logo stickers are used as fundraisers for clubs, schools, or teams. Today, car logos appear even on t-shirts, caps, bags and other accessories. A gift item printed with car logos can make a great gift to any speed lover.

Funny Illusion

Funny thing about life, it's not all the same. Take for instance the experience of a flower as it grows in a sunny backyard and the experience of tube worm as it lives on the bottom of the open sea at depths where light cannot penetrate. The flower needs chlorophyl and sunlight to grow, yet the tube worm living needs none of that and grows quite nicely on chemicals emitted from volcanic emissions found along the perpetually dark ocean floor in areas of tectonic disturbances. There are unlimited kinds of life on earth, under the oceans and even thousands of feet underground in mines.

The point being that life is hard to describe since it will proliferate wherever it can find the necessary ingredients to get a foothold and support its development. With that in mind, and with the vast range of what would seem to be hostile yet life bearing conditions available on earth alone, it seems rather ludicrous to imagine that earth inhabitants could be so nearsighted to think that they are the only inhabitants of a universe as diverse as it seems to be.

But what is life really, what force causes a a seed, an egg or a fetus of any species to bloom from non-life into the stuff of living matter? It seems obvious that man only emerged on the planet quite recently, a very long time after the first life burst forth on a newly formed earth so man is the newcomer in the vast tapestry of earthly life. Evolution speaks to the wide diversity within species, but it does not account for the advent of modern man. There were various experiments along the way, some that took and some that did not.

Modern man was not the only version of man that gave it a try, and you have archeological evidence of some of the earlier versions of man, man/monkey, monkey/man and so forth that did not make it, so to speak. Modern man did not evolve from the chimpanzee as is supposed, but was the unique species of man that survived because it adapted so well to earthly conditions.

Life emerged on earth because earth was the ideal proving ground for a certain type of life envisioned by the entities/souls that sought that particular kind of specialization in a physical environment, a unique experiment since it required creating a world of something out of nothing, quite a feat when you think about it. In the beginning there was nothing except for prime energy that slowly, and I do mean very slowly, began to become aware of itself and as it looked around, found no other than itself. What happened here was an emergence of objective from subjective.

Energy, all energy, is conscious, but at first this consciousness was generalized, meaning it did not recognize itself as an identity, but as a force. The awakening represents the struggle of All That Is to know itself as an identity, and with that recognition came the insatiable desire to create. All That Is realized that it could only fully recognize itself as identity through its creations, and through these independent creations, other energy created identities could look back on themselves and say "I Am", and through this affirmation know itself as individual identity.

3D Street Art

3D Street Art has been around since the 16th century. Originally created by Italian Renaissance Madonarro's and Trompe l'eil painters from France, it has continued to be highly popular and it's magic has been captured by Wiley Admen in the twenty first century.

3D Street Art creates a 3D effect from a 2D picture when viewed through the lens of a camera. It's an exceptionally difficult type of art and only perfected today by a handful of artists including Julian Beever, Edgar Muller and the team of artists at Street Advertising Services in the UK. It's created by painting an object close to the lens compact and squashed and and objects far away are painted in a stretched out way, the effect is a trick on the eye and a mind blowing illusion of 3D depth. Over the last few years Ad Agencies have turned to the 3D pavement artists to create highly effective advertising and PR campaigns.

So how does it work and why is it so effective?

3D Street Art in Advertising works so brilliantly in two words: entertain and inform. Isn't that what the best adverts do? Entertain and inform and that's what 3D pavement art is so good at. When a consumer sees a piece of 3D street art, they recognise the image and shape etc of the content but it's only when they are advised to look through the lens of their mobile phone camera that the magic happens. There is always an 'aha' moment that the picture jumps into 3d in their eyes, which is what makes it so entertaining. The next stage in the process is the consumer asking, 'how does it work and what's this for?'. That's the opportunity for brand ambassadors to explain the 3d process and inform them of the brand's message.

OK so 3D street art works great in an experiential campaign or live event, what are the other benefits?

Not only is the consumer entertained and informed by the artwork, the next step is to interact with the picture. Encouraged by the artist and brand ambassadors, they walk on to the picture and have their photo taken with it. The photo is taken on the consumer's mobile phone and the photo is then uploaded to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr to show their friends and family. The result? Start of a viral campaign.

Funny Text Quotes

Ever heard of the quote, "If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything"? This is exactly why you want to humor a girl you just met, because it creates a good first impression. And just as any first impressions go, the first text you send to a girl you just met will determine how she will respond to you later on. So, make her laugh and have her thinking of good thoughts about you. Here are some ideas to get you started with your funny texts:

Get Her Interested

First of all, you have to get her attention. Because girls rely on their emotions most of the time, it is good to get her attention by sending her a text that makes her laugh or feel good. It doesn't have to be an overly done compliment or a cheesy story, but you can usually pull from what you already know. For example, if you just met a girl at a club, you can make a reference of a joke to it. Say, "Hey, you know what? I'm starting to master those dougie steps, but I look more like a doggy than anything else!"

Funny texts will suggest that you are somehow interesting. However, if she doesn't reply to you right away, that's fine. You can send her another after a few days. Naturally, you just want to make a good impression-and what better way to do that than to put a smile on her face!

Create a Bond

When you're planning to ask a girl out on a date through text, make sure to have a connection with her. This is important because a girl won't say yes if she doesn't trust you enough to see you again. One way you can do this is through sending funny texts. If you were able to chat with her a bit during the first time you met her, you might have had a funny instance somewhere in the middle of that conversation. Start an inside joke from that bit! Or, if not, you can always get to know her more.

If you're interested in a girl and would like to ask her out on a date some time, make sure to remind her of things that will somehow connect you both, so that she'll feel the connection and be interested in seeing you, too. Funny texts can bring about a more positive response overall.
