An Artist Made a Military Tank That Delivers Free Books to Promote Reading

He called it “weapon of mass instruction”.

An innovative artist from Buenos Aires decided to transform a vintage 1979 Ford Falcon into a military tank to become a “weapon of mass instruction”.

Raul Lemesoff, who worked on the eccentric project for several years, created a tank armoured with built-in shelves which can hold up to 900 books inside and outside the vehicle. The artist’s mobile library is used to distribute books in rural communities as well as urban centers across Argentina.

With a mission to combat ignorance and spread knowledge, Lemesoff only expects one thing from the recipients of his books: to read it.

7UP recently teamed up with Lemessoff to produce a video featuring his bookmobile as part of their “Feels Good to be You”. In the video, Lemesoff was seen touring Argentina handing out books to passersby. Some random people were also seen picking books from the built-in shelves.

Check out Lemesoff’s “Weapon of Mass Instruction”.

What an awesome creation! We definitely need to see more tanks carrying goodness instead of weapons. You can check out Lemesoff’s Tumblr if you want to get more updates.

Man Bravely Strips Off to Reveal the Excess Skin After Incredibly Losing 270 Pounds!

Matt Diaz has worked extremely hard to lose 270 pounds over the past six years. The result? Incredible!

Blogger Matt Diaz, 22, took social media abuzz when he posted his half-naked photos on his Tumblr blog. Diaz lost about 270 lbs, and has since carried excess skin all over his body. While he religiously documented his weight loss journey, which started when he was 16 years old, he never revealed how he looks like under his shirt. For him, the excess skin on his body are flaws that he is too scared to expose. But then, he realized that he cannot promote positivism and acceptance in his blog if he himself is not ready to embrace his imperfection. Just recently, he decided to show his body to the world saying,

'I'm really scared to put this up. But I think it's important for me to share this with you guys, because this is who I am.'

She Was Dubbed ‘The Ugliest Woman In The World’. Now She’s a Global Inspiration!

Named as the ‘ugliest’ but She is her own kind of BEAUTIFUL.

By

'Beauty is only skin deep.' True to the words of Sir Thomas Overbury in his poem 'A Wife,' another remarkable story teaches us that character is more important than physical beauty and Lizzie Velasquez is here to enlighten us.

Velasquez was dubbed as 'The World's Ugliest Woman' in the internet when she was 17 years old which made her an online sensation. She was born with two rare conditions,  'Marfan syndrome' and 'Lipodystrophy.' She is not able to gain weight no matter what she eats. At 26, she only weighs 60 lbs or 27 kg. She is blind in one eye while the other is visually impaired. Velasquez was 17 when she stumbled upon a YouTube video of herself named as 'The Ugliest Woman in the World.'

'I was shocked,' Velasquez recalls, 'but it wasn't until I started to read the comments that my stomach really sank.'

'Why would her parents keep her?!' says one comment, 'kill it with fire' says another. She was devastated and cried for many nights....

This Mother Did Not Receive Formal Education. How She ‘Taught’ Her Child? Amazing!

Let your children learn through their own experiences.

By

Children view adults as mentors. How an adult acts and reacts to life situations can greatly influence a child's identity. We can all be considered teachers in the eyes of a child, as we share basic information that can help increase their knowledge.

However, the children today are more advanced, maybe because they now have access to unlimited information that are just one click away. But there is more to life that needs to be learned- things that only experience can teach, experiences that can help children become wiser.

This inspiring video depicts the difference between wisdom and knowledge. A simple yet powerful story that is clearly and cleverly presented. It is a story about a mother, her daughter...and a pineapple.
