Kulula Air: Airplanes with convenient instructional paint jobs

Written by sarah. Filed under WTF. Tagged , , , . No comments.

This plane comes with instructions. Comforting.

Kulula Air , a low-fare 737 carrier based in South Africa has given their planes a makeover.   The new paint scheme, dubbed “Flying 101″, features details about the plane and it’s workings.  Large white arrows point out things such as where the captain sits, the black box, seats, stabilizer, rudder and my personal favorite the aircraft’s registration, or “Secret Agent Code.”

Is it a witty branding move or a vaguely unsettling instructional paint job for maintenance crews?

Mile High Foodies Dish on Denver Dining

Denver Skyline

Think Denver lacks a food scene? Think again.

In order for a vibrant restaurant scene to thrive, it needs people to spread the word about what’s hot in the food scene. The Mile High City has a group of dedicated foodies that includes critics, bloggers and chefs who spread the word about what restaurants are worth a visit, up and coming chefs and deliciously crafted dishes.

Denver’s food scene has a lot to love. The cooks are creative, energetic and smart but the restaurants don’t lack the comfort food that so many people crave. Don’t put too much value in Anthony Bourdain‘s antagonism toward Denver’s food scene. It’s excellent.

To match Denver’s eco-conscious, health-conscious aesthetic, there’s an abundance of wind-powered stops and niche shops. Take Sweet Action (@sweetactionic), for example, running on wind power, using biodegradable products and serving up vegan ice cream — and lots of delicious regular fare as well.

Matching comfort food with an all-vegetarian menu, Watercourse and City ‘O City (with a brand new menu) are a delight. Whether it’s buffalo seitan wings at City or a reuben at Watercourse, the food is healthy, delicious and brimming with creativity.

The people are down to earth, connected with each other and most importantly, have a passion for good food.

Kool-Aid Man responsible for some serious destruction

Late one night, three friends heard a crash outside.  They went out to investigate and found that a car had driven through the side of a house a few doors down.  After checking out the destruction they headed back inside to enjoy the rest of their evening. An hour later, after the police cars and on-lookers had gone,  an individual saw their opportunity for greatness.

Oh, yes. Kool-Aid anyone?

Standing in the rubble was a likeness of the Kool-Aid man, bursting forth from the wall.  Whoever spray-painted the Kool-Aid Man seized a fantastic opportunity and made all my dreams come true.  Because really…who hasn’t wanted the Kool-Aid Man to bust down your wall and offer you a refreshing drink?

Are you wondering why this is so hilarious?
