This Is The Coolest Invention Ever From The 70s. Why Did This Never Catch On?!

Culture
The 70's were a time of all sorts of nifty inventions, some stuck like pocket calculators and microwaves while other inventions were a bit too out there and didn't really take off, like water beds. This mini-camper that could attach onto the roof of small cars to give the driver incredible maneuverable is one idea I wish had stuck. If only because it looks like awesome fun. Check out the ad below of the Harmon Industries Shadow trailer in action, shown attached to a Volkswagen Beetle.

Most of the time, what kids want to draw never ends up looking like what is actually drawn... OR DOES IT? Most adults assume that the messy images that end up on the paper aren't what kids meant to draw. Dutch artist Telmo Pieper proved that sometimes childish doodles look more like finalized (and terrifying) works than we might originally think. He revisited some of the drawings he made as a child and "finished" them with his adult skills. The final result is borderline nightmarish. Originally, Telmo drew these years ago. Telmo Pieper ...

When parents send their kids off to school with their lunches packed, sometimes they'll throw in a note of encouragement or some other small token to make sure they remember how much their parents love them while they're away.
