Taking public transportation can be a hit-and-miss proposition. Typically, your best case scenario is that you reach your destination on time. When it comes to your worst-case scenario, well, public transportation can ruin your day. Today, we are choosing to dwell on the bright side of life. Keep on reading to find 40 of the funniest, weirdest, and downright strangest commuters ever found in public.

Wild Kitty

Now, if your attention was immediately pulled in by the glaring woman, we wouldn’t blame you for missing what is really going on in this picture. Let your eyes drift a bit further south. Not like that, pervert! Nestled in a hidden, smol, cozy lil nest is the exact type of wild kitty we want to run into on the bus.

Save the Rhinos

We can’t all be heroes, but we can all do something to help. While this picture looks out-of-this-world, its purpose is far more grounded in reality. This costumed train rider is rocking a rhino suit in order to raise awareness for the said endangered animal. We have to imagine that this costume is sweltering.


tineye

Can’t Park Here

We’ve heard that purchasing an electric car can come with its own set of perks, but we didn’t realize that this was included! This seemingly oblivious gentleman has chosen to park his electric car on the subway, you know, as you do. We particularly like how he is looking down at his phone as if to avoid attention. Little late for that, bud.


tineye

Just a Good Idea

Have you ever taken a train into the city for a night of drinking? Well, if you have, you know how uncomfortable the ride back can be. This man-bunned genius chose to avoid the uncomfortable seats altogether by bringing his own hammock. Most impressive of all, he managed to hang his hammock without blocking the aisle. We’re impressed.


tineye

Hold, Please

When you are forced to stand in a crowded bus or train, the resulting chaos can be bad for y our health. Being jerked around by the stopping motion of the vehicle can lead to falls, uncomfortable touching, and general tomfoolery. Having said that, we’re not sure we’d go this far in order to stop ourselves from falling. After all, she had to have carried that plunger around all day!


tineye

Pika…Dude?

If you absolutely have to wear your Pikachu costume on the train, you might as well make sure that you are safe about it. While Pikachu can probably rest easy when it comes to Team Rocket, he might still want a little help in case gravity decides to strike. 


tineye

Meal Prep on the Go

We admire this lady’s dedication to sticking to her diet. With that being said, we can’t imagine a meal so pressing that you’d have to actually chop up your food on the train. The fella in blue looks a little concerned about her knife skills. As a matter of fact, this is probably a great way to accidentally get stabbed.


tineye

Battle of the Icons

It’s not every day that you get to see two titans of the film industry face off. Of course, these two aren’t titans of anything. They are just two dudes in super-expensive costumes, sweating while they stare at each other on a subway. Still, it’s kind of cool looking.


tineye

Zords in the Shop

Have you ever planned a good old Mighty Morphin’ Time only to realize that your Zord was still in the shop? Well, these Rangers surely have. When you can’t take your alien technology for a ride, you might as well catch the subway.


tineye

Active Camouflage… Kind Of

Wearing camo in the right environment can be a great way to go unseen. Wearing camouflage in the wrong environment can, well, yield quite dramatically different results. We admire the ghillie suit, but we don’t admire the IQ of this wayward sneakster. 


tineye

Charge for Two Seats

We are all for people going out there and having fun, living their best life. With that being said, you still gotta charge this guy for two seats, right? I mean, what even is a zebra-centaur? Is that a thing? Are we behind the times when it comes to mythological creatures?


tineye

Personal Space – Lego Style

This lady is personifying how we feel 24/7. We have to admit, creating a special bubble around yourself out of special legos can seem kind of out there, but we get it. If you want to buy one of your own, look up the Hoberman.


tineye

Playing Army Man

Have you ever wanted to join the army, but you didn’t really want to commit to the training? No? Did you at least play with toy soldiers as a child? There you go, then this costume is perfect for you. Just keep the magnifying glass away, we don’t want any Sid-situations.


tineye

Millennial Tragedy

We know two things about this picture. The first is that this woman was clearly drunk before she bought the pizza. The second is that this woman will be drunk and in despair when she wakes up. Although, it does look like she has black olives on that pie, so we suppose it’s better off being fed to the floor.


tineye

Strangely Horrifying

We are looking at a talented performance artist, someone with a mental illness, or the first-ever paper towel alien. Like all great cursed images, we’ll let you decide the reality of the situation. For our part, we’re putting money on the paper towel alien theory.


tineye

Devil’s Lettuce

Dad always said that if you messed with the devil’s lettuce, it would come back to haunt you. We have no idea what that meant, and we’re not certain that it meant this, either. One thing we are certain about is this, this lady needs a better hat.


tineye

Every Goth Ever

They say that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can pretty much know what you’re getting here.  We assume that this Goth loves Edgar Allen Poe, loves the color black, and loves showing everybody his pet bird. That is a pet, right?


tineye

Serious Gaming Moment

Perhaps more bizarre than the fellow gaming on the train is the fact that the train is completely empty. Seriously, where can we move where this is even a possibility? Oh, yeah, the television is weird, too. Also, where is the power source for the Xbox? Is this picture completely fake?


tineye

Fine Dining

We’ve heard of pop-up restaurants, but this is starting to get a little bit extreme. What impresses us the most about this situation is the fact that this fella had everything ready for dinner. He was even brave enough to try using chopsticks on a train. He’s either completely prepared for everything, or hopelessly weird.


tineye

Flavor Flaaaav

Some people like to wear a wristwatch. Some people like to use their phone to tell the time. Some people rip their clock off of the wall in order to hang it around their neck while they travel the city. We are all unique in our own way, we guess.


tineye

Going For a Ride

What makes this picture fascinating is the fact that dog tote-bags are totally a thing. However, these totes are typically reserved for tiny dogs that can fit into the crook of your arm. Not, you know, massive pit bulls. Still, the dog is adorable, so we call no harm, no foul.


tineye

She Look’s Knife

We’ve all rushed out of the door at the last moment without being prepared. Typically, it isn’t uncommon to see someone do their makeup while on the train. What is uncommon, however, is the fact that this lady is using a darn knife to spread her foundation. What in the world?


tineye

Nose Pillow

Some people like to sleep on their stomach, others like to sleep on their nose. Who are we to judge? Well, okay, we feel fine judging this position. The lady is going to wake up with either a massive headache or a new snoring problem.


tineye

Hamster Walking Professional

If you pull out your tabletop magnifying glass, you’ll see that this enterprising professional is currently walking a hamster with a hat on its head. While the hamster is adorable, of course, this still looks like a bad time for the little critter. We hope that the hamster didn’t get stepped on!


tineye

Big Knitting Fans

We tend to really fall in love with the latest hobby that we try. This gentleman right here is us after reading about knitting for half of an hour. In all seriousness though, we’re impressed by this guy’s ability. His entire outfit appears to have been made from scratch with only his knitting talents.


tineye

Typical Morning Commute

When you are running late to Angel Grove High School, you sometimes have to take the train. Only, the train isn’t always faster than your Zord. Go figure. We just hope Rita and her gang of Putty Soldiers we’ll hold off for a little bit, someone puked in the aisle. Life is hard when you are the Red Ranger.


tineye

Unlucky Leprechaun

We like to think of Leprechauns as average people who got caught up in folklore. Now, everywhere they go, people ask them about their treasure or lucky charms. It looks like this gentleman has just about had enough, wouldn’t you say? So, next time you decide to give your neighborhood leprechaun a hard time, just think about what they are going through.


tineye

All Around Pleasant

Sometimes, in this cynical world, it can be nice to just smile. Here we see a cute little baby being serenaded by a sailor with a violin. How could you possibly dislike that? Oh, you don’t like babies? Or violins? You hate trains? You hate public acts of decency? Never mind then, keep on scrolling.


tineye

Best Bed Ever

We’ve all fallen asleep in a funky place in our lives. Whether you fell asleep at the dinner table or conked out while typing a paper, there is nothing to be ashamed of. With this guy, well, that’s an entirely different story. How in the heck do you even pull this off? You know what? We actually don’t want to know.


tineye

President.. Obama?

Remember that episode of The Office where Michael Scott was convinced he ran into Johnny Depp at his apartment complex? We like to think that situations like this happen to him all of the time. This guy looks just enough like President Obama in order to get you to take a photo and tell a story. He’s probably well aware of it, too.


tineye

Different Kind of Sleep Mask

Do you want to travel in public without being bothered by anyone? We’ve got the perfect tool for you! Meet the Alien sleeping mask, perfect for long commutes, glaring at children, and creeping the rest of the train out. Oh, yeah, you can also take comfortable naps with the mask on. If you look close, you’ll see a horrifying set of eye holes as well as a breathing hole for your nose.


tineye

Making Drinking Buddies

There is a special place in between buzzed and completely blasted that is perfect for making friends. Your just sober enough to know what you are doing and just drunk enough to have fun doing it. We love to see two strangers come together during the missing hours of the morning.


tineye

Another Dog Bag

On some level, we understand that these dog totes make sense. We’re sure it can be a great way to control your dog and keep them from making a scene. Still, we can’t shake the feeling that these bags were not meant for massive dogs like Huskies or Pits.


tineye

Magical Commute

Yes, that is Sir Ian McKellen. Yes, he played two of the most famous and amazing wizards of all time. Yes, he is on your commute. No, you are not dreaming. Still, we wouldn’t suggest bothering him. Let the man ride in peace! If you absolutely must bother him, make sure that he doesn’t have a giant staff with him when you do.


tineye

Relaxing Train Ride

If you’ve ever been on a crowded train, you know how frantic things can get. Fortunately, if you were on this train, you’ll have the kind of tunes that help you settle down. With that being said, we can’t imagine how risky it is to bring an expensive harp onto the train. We sure appreciate the effort, though.


tineye

Next Train, Please

We definitely are not saying that we would run screaming from this train, nope, not at all. What we are saying is, well, we just wouldn’t get on this train in the first place. After all, it isn’t every single day that you see a massive demon in your favorite seat. We are particularly unsettled by the glowing red eyes, long fingers, black body, huge frame, and, well, we’re afraid of everything here.


tineye

Baby Steps

When everyone else is turning to online dating, this maverick is heading underground to the subway. We aren’t saying that this guy is going to have any luck with the techniques in that book, but he’s already set himself apart as a free thinker. Kind of. Okay, we’re just giving this guy the benefit of the doubt. Read your dating books at home, not in front of potential dates!

Disciplining A Child And Creating a Program To Discipline Themselves

Mackenzie Freeman

Published

When To Consider Raising or Having Children

1. Some people see that their lives would be enhanced if they were a parent and do not want to miss out on having a child,  especially when they hear their friends or associates praising having children in their lives.  Parenthood is glorified and is considered an extraordinary experience. Still, they do not think that there is any downside to having children because parenthood is a given and considered transcendent when a parent has one good experience with its child and the child,  is not interrupted by a Smartphone, headphones or earbuds, which does not qualify as a higher spiritual plane.  Parenting, being a given, must be thoroughly thought through because it is a full-time responsibility, which carves up all of one’s free time.

2. If your motive to be a parent is that people tell you that if you do not, you will regret this decision. This motive is not a good reason to be a parent.  While regretting not having children is a compelling reason to have children.

3.  If your partner wants to have children, should this motivate yourself to do so, even though you are ambivalent?  Being pressured to have a child by a desperate partner can easily backfire, and your partner’s motivation may be that desperate parent has doubts about the success of the marriage.

4. You should not have any genuine concerns about your parenting skills. While having concerns is not atypical, legitimate concerns should not be ignored.  It is essential that you know yourself and trust your feelings that you had doubts about whether you could love and protect your child.

 5.  When you thought about having a child, one factor was that the child could be an insurance policy to care for you as you age, and you feared to be lonely and neglected.

Parents Discipline of Young Children

It is unusual to determine your discipline strategy for your unborn child, but that issues arise in the early years of the child’s life.  Further, in your discussion with your partner concerning discipline, you may realize if there is a significant difference between you and your partner. That issue should be addressed before determining if your parenting styles significantly differ before you commit to having children.   

Discipline Factors

Discipline is directly related to the emotional well being of the parents, the age and developmental status of the child, and
ethnic and racial differences.  One would hope that the emotional well being of the parent would be explored before the parents deciding to have children.  

Stop Doing Tasks For Your Teenagers

A parents goal is to raise competent and capable adults and decide that disciplining their teenagers when they don’t complete essential tasks is not helping them to become well-functioning adults such as:

1. Ensuring that they wake themselves up in the morning when the snooze button on their alarm clock does not effectively wake them up,
2.  Making their breakfast and packing their lunch.
3.  Completing their school-related paperwork.
4. Bringing forgotten items to their school.
5. Do not cover your children’s failure to finish school projects.
6. Doing their laundry.
7.  Contacting their teachers or coaches. 
8. Becoming too involved with their academic responsibilities.
 
Teaching Children Common Sense Life Skills

Parents are concerned that whether they should use common sense to teach a child life’s skills to ensure that their children can function in the real world, which is unrelated to technology or computer knowledge.  Society expects that parents teach their children common sense life skills and will, in some form, punish parents for not doing so.  Parents have to set aside a home-based program to teach these skills.  The common-sense life skills program must be designed to have consequences putting the final responsibility on their children to show that they will suffer from avoiding tasks and must develop self-discipline.

In 2017, when the bourgh of St. Laurent in Montreal began pushing for rooftop gardens IGA Extra Famille Duchemin wanted to participate. Today it is one of the first supermarkets in Canada to grow produce on the roof. The garden is 25,000 square feet and  grows organic produce that is LEED Certified.The store grows and harvest over 35 different types of vegetables. They have beehives in the garden that produce honey sold to customers.

The store grows organic carrots, kale, spinach, green beans, eggplant, tomatoes, lettuce, basil, radishes, and more. The design of the garden is shaped like the letters IGA. When viewe  from a plane the garden is a striking design to see. IGA Extra Famile Duchemin staff hoped it might serve as an example to other stores.Co-owner Richard Duchemin says that the vegetable sell very well and when they decided to go with a rooftop garden they asked the questioon why don’t supermarkets have rooftop gardens as many restaurant do.

They knew they would be able to sell what they grow and this was a big factor in deciding to have a rooftop garden.The green roof regulates temperatures in the building below and the produce feeds the local customers. The garden is watered by using water from the dehumidification system in the store that is reclaimed. This garden has become a habitat for birds and bees. Growing their own vegetable on the roof saves the store, money because they do not have to transport it. 

The project was managed by a company called Ligne Verte a landscaping company in 2017 and they had a year round staff of two. It is the largest commercial rooftop garden in Canada. During busy times, they have an additional six month contract. Growing seasonal  produce results  in selling  out of produce. They can keep prices reasonable since they have no transportation costs. They planted strawberries recently  because it seemed to be a fruit that would be easy to grow. The gardeners  will eventually try to grow cherries.

The store installed a digal kiosk that allows customers to order produce from the garden on the roof and see how they grow the garden. The digital touch screen shows customers how the produce is grown and harvested. VIF Tele designed the digital touchscreen system that integrated hardware and software for ordering and viewing marketing content. They system updates inventory available continuously.

This kiosk is interactive and customers can view products available in real time grown in the rooftop garden. Orders are sent immediately from the garden to wireless tablets used by the rooftop team and the inventory of vegetables is updated regularly. Customers can see staff picking their order in the garden and  walking down 44 steps to deliver the order to the customer. The interactive technology increased sales by 25 percent. It creates a direct link between their customers and farmers growing the produce on the roof. 

IGA Extra Famile Duchemin uses social media to expand the advertising and marketing of their rooftop garden. In addition to growing their own produce the buy and sell produce from locall organic farms. They have videos of their rooftop garden on YouTube that has increased their customer base. They hope to make rooftop gardens a trend for other supermarkets.
