The Art of the Japanese Manhole The Japanese have a wonderful relationship with their manhole covers: they treat them as art. Here is a selection of the ornate, the artistic and the slightly bizarre. Jeremy Bentham the English philosopher wrote Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet. Wise words from a wise man and occasionally - as we shall see - something that can be taken literally. In Japan, due care and attention is paid to every element of urban design and the humble manhole is no exception. Best, when visiting this country, to look down occasionally. It has just occurred to the author of this article that to say that this is the prettiest manhole he had ever seen could lead to some dirty minded readers misconstruing the point.

Facebook Changes We'd Actually Want To See | Cool Material - StumbleUpon If you had a dollar for every person who posted their hatred of the new Facebook layout, you’d be able to give Mark Zuckerberg a run for his money. Okay that’s a guess, and most likely a wrong one, but you get our point. When Facebook made its most recent set of changes the Preteen Panic Meter hit “Justin Bieber Has A Girlfriend” levels, and while that demographic made the most noise (mostly high-pitched screams), we weren’t too crazy about the adjustments either. Here are the Facebook Changes We’d Actually Want To See:
