This Useful Tool Ensures That Pregnant Passengers In South Korea Always Gets Train Seats

This is actually cool!

A A A

With the use of pink lights, Busan, South Korea is making sure pregnant women can always find seats each time they ride the train.

Being the second largest city in the country, Busan’s subway is always busy and so they thought of a way to ensure that pregnant passengers never run out of seats. A new wireless scheme with pink light alerts has been designed to inform passengers that a pregnant woman has just boarded the train. This, of course, is a signal for the other passengers to give up priority seats.

South Korea’s Pink Light Campaign makes it possible for pregnant passengers to get priority subway seats.

This simple solution prevents the awkward situation of women having to ask other passengers for a seat. Or that scenario when some passengers have to guess if a woman is pregnant or not.

The system has already been tested by 500 women in Busan City, South Korea.

Suh Byung-soo, mayor of Busan, said:

“Consideration for pregnant women should prevail and they should be able to use public transportation more easily and conveniently with this policy.

“Women should be able to use city facilities easily even when they are expecting.”

Lee Gyeong-eon, a 23-year-old student, agreed that the tool can be helpful and shared:

“It is hard to tell if a woman is pregnant, and give up a seat, when she doesn’t have a baby bump.”

The campaign is not without its critics, however, as Ellie Gibson of the British Scummy Mummies podcast said that it “feels a bit like an overly complicated solution to a simple problem.”

She also added:

“I found the level of attention embarrassing when I wore a ‘Baby on board’ badge – I’m not sure how comfortable I would feel with pink lights going off when I got on a train.”

Worst Wardrobe Malfunction Ever: Woman’s Panties Fall Off While She’s Singing On Stage

A viral video shows a woman singing on stage experiencing the craziest wardrobe malfunction.

A wardrobe malfunction can happen to anyone. For the record, we looked up the definition of the phrase in The Oxford Dictionary. It is described as "an instance of a person accidentally exposing an intimate part of their body as a result of an article of clothing slipping out of position."

While the clothing-related snafu is a normal thing, celebrities and other performers suffer most when it happens. Since they are in the public eye, their wardrobe snafus are often captured in pictures of videos. If they're really unlucky, the gaffe happens live in front of an audience.

In the age of social media, photos and videos of wardrobe malfunctions quickly go viral. That's what happened to a nine-second video clip that was posted by Facebook user Trevor Clarke. The video shows a woman singing dressed in a glittery dress. She is singing on stage.

Would you be caught dead on the beach wearing one of these?

China has long been known as an imitator of everything, from technology to gadgets, and from world-famous brands to even destinations. On many instances, these shanzhai, or fakes, look as good as the real thing.

One particular fashion statement, however, is becoming singularly known as a Chinese original. Dubbed the "facekini," it has become a staple on the beaches of China's Shandong province.

Fish Bra Selfies are the Latest Bizarre Trend to Sweep Social Media

Before you get your panties in a bunch, no, the fish bra challenge does not involve turning live fish into women’s apparel!

Social media is a constant case of monkey see, monkey do. Just have one famous (or at least, internet famous) person do something remotely out of the ordinary, and you’ll have a swarm of followers emulating the same thing. These things, while not necessarily challenging, are often referred to as challenges.

Back then we had noble challenges that raised awareness for diseases such as ALS with the Ice Bucket Challenge. But these days, some challenges are far from noble (just Google the ridiculous Panty Challenge and you’ll understand what we mean). They’re just ridiculously vain, and frankly, pointless.
