These Dutch folks on holiday waited for exactly 8am to be able to reserve their pool loungers. And then they leave for 2 hours while everyone else gets to lay on the ground. Perfect holiday.

A new font, designed by Dutch designer Christian Boer is making it easier for people who suffer from dyslexia to process text.

The typeface, called Dyslexie, incorporates a number of tweaks to traditional fonts, which prevent someone from rotating, or mirroring the letters.

Boer, who suffers from dyslexia himself, designed the letters with heavier bottom portions to prevent a reader from turning them upside down, added extra tails, increased spacing between letters and words and lengthened ascenders and descenders to better distinguish between characters.

Boer discussed the font in a TED talk in 2011, and it is currently on display at the 2014 Istanbul Design Biennial.

If you don't speak Dutch, this advertisement comes off as a little... morbid?

Dutch artist Bart Jansen was rather heartbroken when his cat, Orville, was hit and killed by a car. However, Jansen decided to memorialize his deceased buddy in a unique way: by turning him into a helicopter.

Yup. A helicopter. Jansen is quoted as saying:

"Now he is finally flying with the birds. The greatest goal a cat could ever reach!"

False. If his body turned into a poptart and he began flying around the sky with a rainbow trailing him, THEN he would reach the greatest goal a cat could ever reach!
