SOBBING.

Imagine a social network that was reminiscent of your favorite local dive bar after last call – a social network that let you mingle/connect with other inebriated individuals. A “party” social network if you will. That’s exactly what you have with Livr – a secret social network that only allows access to users that blow over the legal limit.

So you might be wondering, how does this work exactly? Simply download the LIVR app, attach the included breathalyzer, and blow right into the attachment. If you blow over .08 (legally drunk), then you are instantly given access, and that’s where the real magic happens. Once inside, you can play a handful of party games with other drunk LIVR users including “truth or dare,” “drunk dial” random users in hopes of connecting with someone, and even find “hot spots” on the map to keep the party going all night long. Now we all know mistakes can happen after you’ve put down one too many beers, and that’s why LIVR comes with a built-in “Blackout” button to erase all of your previous evening’s escapades.

You had me going for awhile, LivR. Well played, guys. Well played.

Copenhagen-based self taught photographer Jens Lennartsson has taken self-promotion to a fun new level with his latest campaign. Lennartsson has created 400 “GI Jens” action figures of himself to send out as promotional materials. Each action figure is detailed with facial hair, khaki pants, camera bag, and of course, a camera.

You should probably watch the greatest advertisement ever. 

Fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. And barely 1 in 10 actual engineers are women. Early in a girl’s life, the toys marketed to her are usually things that don’t encourage her to enter those fields. GoldieBlox intends to change that by teaching them while they are young that these fields can be fun — and apparently epic, by the looks of this super-genius 2-minute video. Watch and learn. 

If you like what GoldieBlox is doing to innovate for girls’ toys, you could Like them on Facebook. And if you want to see them win a chance at airing their commercial in the Super Bowl (instead of seeing another creepy GoDaddy ad), you could vote here. (via upworthy)
Girls. 
You think you know what we want, girls.
Pink and pretty it’s girls.
Just like the 50’s it’s girls.

You like to buy us pink toys
and everything else is for boys
and you can always get us dolls
and we’ll grow up like them… false.

It’s time to change.
We deserve to see a range.
'Cause all our toys look just the same
and we would like to use our brains.

We are all more than princess maids.

Girls to build the spaceship,
Girls to code the new app,
Girls to grow up knowing
they can engineer that.

Girls. 
That’s all we really need is Girls. 
To bring us up to speed it’s Girls. 
Our opportunity is Girls. 
Don’t underestimate Girls.

‘Invisible’ Owners Take Dogs For Walks To Raise Awareness For Pet Adoption

To promote its rescue program and to raise awareness for pet adoption, Mexican pet store +Kota ran a street campaign that involved ‘invisible’ owners taking dogs on a walk. 

Faced with a limited budget, the store created floating leashes that made it seem like invisible people were walking the animals. 

Attached to the leashes were also adoption messages that informed members of the public on how they can adopt the animals. 

According to the video, its campaign was a success with 221 homeless dogs finding new homes and owners.
