Would you believe that vegan food sales have been rapidly increasing in the last few years? It’s not just more vegans either; it turns out that meat eaters are also jumping on the newest development – including the biggest meat producer in the U.S.
Making The Change
Believe it or not, but Tyson, the company that had grown famous for its ready-to-eat beef and frozen chicken tenders, it about to go vegan. Yes, you read that correctly – it seems as though Tyson could be about to break the habit of a lifetime with their brand new range of vegan-friendly products, but why the sudden change?
Sticking To The Trend
Noel White, CEO and President of Tyson, admitted they want to stick to the growing trend of vegan food. Many people have now opted for the lifestyle change, while many others enjoy several vegan options alongside their regular diet. The growing health change and call for help to protect the planet have both been two significant factors.
Not The First Time
Amazingly, this isn’t the first time that Tyson has opted for vegan products. The company invested in Beyond Meat back in October 2016 as the former CEO, Tom Hayes, confessed that they needed to expand if they were going to keep up with the growing demand for meat alternatives.
Growing Their Food
So where will the vegan meat come from? That’s all thanks to MycoProtein. Tyson Ventures invested in the food producer that grows plant-based proteins from mushrooms that they can then turn into their meat alternatives. Not only do you get plenty of health benefits from the change, but no animals are harmed in the making of the new food.
Although many people have now opted to switch to a vegan lifestyle, some have begun to follow a “flexitarian” lifestyle meaning they eat both vegan meals and meat options throughout the week. Now, the incredible number of options set to hit the stores will not only give vegans more options for their meals but will also help to encourage other people to try new foods, too.
Going vegan no longer has to be as tough as we thought – especially with the biggest meat producer in the U.S. making the change. Who knows, perhaps we will all be living the vegan lifestyle sooner than we thought?
25+ Photos of Tiny Mistakes That Ended Up Being Disastrous
We’re all human, which means that we all mistakes. More often than not, you end up learning from those mistakes. However, sometimes a tiny mistake can be a disaster in disguise. The small mistakes these people knowingly or inadvertently made ended up being disastrous for them — and in some cases, the people around them. Read on to learn from their experience so you don’t make the same mistakes.
Finding a parking space can be a nuisance in the hustle and bustle of a city. People park their cars (and two-wheelers) on the street due to lack of space. This guy probably faced the same issue and thought of parking his car in the river.
Little did he knew that his idea would flop… literally — however creative he might have thought it to be. A high wave almost swallowed his car before he could do anything to save his Ford Fiesta.
Makeover Gone Rogue
The beloved Jim Morrison once remarked, “Some of the worst mistakes of my life have been haircuts.” We feel you there, Jimmy! Experimenting too much with hair and makeup before any big day comes attached with a risk! It’s a gamble of another kind.
This little girl decided to give herself bangs and a face tattoo… a day before her picture day at school. Her innocent mistake turned out to be a disastrous decision that will haunt her for the rest of her adult life.
Are You Nuts?!
This wasn’t some sort of dare nor was it an act of forgetfulness. This person simply had a craving for peanuts and hence, decided to eat a spoonful of peanut butter despite the fact that he has a severe peanut allergy.
This silly mistake almost cost him his life. His face turned red and he had to be hospitalized for a day or so to bring his allergy under control.
Caught on Cam!
We’ve all lied at some point or another to get out of work for a day or two. Unfortunately, some of us have been caught while doing so, all because we didn’t cover our tracks. This employee, for instance, got caught and how…
Apparently, she had called in sick to go to a job fair. But, she got filmed there by the local channel. We bet that was hard to explain to her boss. Awkward!
An ‘Inside-the-Box’ Mistake
The expression, “Think outside the box” generally refers to coming up with unique and/or unconventional ideas. But, for this cat, he’s literally thinking about what life is like outside of the box. He’s had enough of staying ‘inside the box’ — all cooped up.
This curious cat is looking with rather pleading eyes (puppy eyes?) to help him get out of this trap. His curiosity led him to imprison himself. And, now he wants to get out of it… desperately. Will you help him?
Applying hair color by yourself can be quite difficult. It can get really messy if you don’t wear protective gear — especially when dyeing your hair a brighter shade, such as blue or pink.
Take this poor gal, for instance. Not only did she forget to wear protective gear, but she also failed to apply Vaseline on her hairline to keep the color from dyeing her face too. She looks like she’s just returned from a trip to The Smurf Village.
This absent-minded guy bought an expensive African parrot costing $10,000. One day, he forgot to close the windows of his home. The parrot, who had been wanting to escape from the start, saw this as a golden opportunity to fly somewhere it truly belonged (i.e. the wilderness).
The guy was in for a shock when he figured out that the parrot was missing. He saw the opened window, and put two and two together before cursing himself heavily for his tiny mistake.
Some people have a knack for dropping things on the ground, however carefully they seem to hold it. This guy, for instance, had a pretty buttery grip. He dropped an expensive parcel containing crystalware onto the ground before he could actually make the delivery. Oof.
While we shudder to think of what may have happened to the parcel, we’re just happy that the guy didn’t trip, fall, or sustain injuries of any kind.
Well, Some “Regerts”
A tiny spelling mistake; a misplaced comma or punctuation mark — this can completely alter the meaning of a sentence and the thought behind it. And, every editor worth its salt knows this! Sadly, this tattoo artist doesn’t seem big on using spell-check.
Ironically enough, this tattoo is probably one of the client’s biggest “regerts.” Let’s hope that the tattoo artist gave the guy a refund!
Glass Half… Broken?
After a stressful week, all you want to do during your weekend is take a nice, long bath; maybe even light some candles and add some bath salt too. But, there’s one problem. The glass door needs a bit of adjusting. You’re too lazy to call the repair guy and so, you decide to take matters into your own hands.
Wham, slam… and you end up dismantling the entire glass door — to fine pieces. You did a fine job, of breaking the glass door to pieces at least!
Changing With the Times
Parking spots, as we mentioned earlier, are highly sought after in big cities. To solve that issue, many places now have vertical parking systems in which cars are stacked on top of each other with the help of an elevator lift.
This guy’s building didn’t have such a system. Therefore, he decided to emulate the vertical parking by stacking his car on top of another car. Well, he should just have stuck to the age-old parking system like other residents of his building.
While running a red light is a common occurrence in many nations, ignoring the other signals is a different thing altogether. It’s highly advisable to read all the signals to avoid any mishap on the road.
This driver, for instance, seems to have ignored the height restrictions and rammed his vehicle into the signpost. Hopefully, this incident didn’t cause too much traffic!
Conserving Energy Gone Wrong
Saving electricity is a good habit. We should all turn off light switches and gadgets when they’re not in use. This guy was perhaps a creature of habit when he switched off the main electricity board of to the freezer of the supermarket he was working in.
While he went home happily thinking that he saved his employer a good amount of electricity, he ended up increasing other expenses — like having to replace all the frozen foods and cartons of ice cream.
We should know when to discard an electronic appliance/motor car and when not to. It seems like this guy misjudged the condition of his car and thought it was repairable. But, the reality was that his rusty car was far from fixable.
It kept breaking down, and the guy had to continuously repair it in hopes that it would last him just a bit longer. Soon, the cost of the repairs exceeded the original value of the car and he was caught up in repair debts amounting to more than a thousand dollars!
Keeping the toilet seat closed is a part of having good bathroom etiquette. Having said that, a lot of people have a habit of talking on the phone while doing their business on the toilet! Such habits can prove expensive at times, though.
Like how it did for this guy. He dropped his phone in the toilet and accidentally flushed it without realizing what he had flushed. It would be safe to say here that all his contacts went down the drain.
Just Plane Annoying
A lot of you must have nearly missed the flight, train, or bus at some point in life. And chances are, you probably learned from it, just like this guy. He learned that airlines never wait for anyone unless it’s a charter flight.
He missed his important flight and had to re-arrange his itinerary from a scratch. Besides the emotional toll, he had to shell out $750 to book a flight the very next day. We hope that he never missed a flight after this.
Certain ingredients in the kitchen can be quite confusing, especially when you’re new to cooking or you’re simply in a race against time. Salt and sugar are common culprits of causing confusion, thanks to their similar appearances.
This budding baker made a cake for one of their clients using salt… instead of sugar. We can’t even imagine the client’s face when he took his first bite of this savory cake. Nonetheless, this mistake cost the baker a client — and some good word of mouth.
Night at the Museum
Museums, as everyone knows, house priceless statues, paintings, and antiques. Some of these artworks are so expensive that they cost more than your entire life. So, it’s better to admire it all from a respectable distance.
It seems that this person had no spatial awareness and got too close to this Greek God statue. He ended up falling over and knocking off the statue along the way, causing it to break in different places. We hope the conservation team was able to restore the statue and make it look like, erm, new!
This mistake may seem era-inappropriate. Also, certain generations — like Gen Z’ers — might not be able to relate with this one, but here goes. Long before digital cameras and DSLRs were invented, people used to take pictures with a 35mm miniature camera.
These kinds of cameras use a film roll that has to be rolled inside the camera in a dark place. This guy, while taking out the film roll, exposed it to sunlight thereby damaging the entire spool — and most importantly, the memories captured.
Don’t Forget to Tip Your Server
Major server crashes can momentarily halt business operations and bring everything to a standstill. They can also cause data breaches, data theft, and overall cause systems to become prone to bugs and errors. This curious IT guy had a brush with a similar incident, when he was trying to learn about new software his company had just begun using.
He accidentally hit a button that he wasn’t supposed to that sent out 45,000 password reset e-mails to users, thereby causing the system to crash within a few hours.
The Ultimate Concert Fail
Concerts attract tons and tons of people, especially when it comes to music festivals like Coachella. Because of this, these events get sold out pretty quickly. Because of the small time window, a lot of people end up making booking mistakes such as filling out incorrect names that don’t match their official ID.
Take this couple, for instance. Apparently, their all-time favorite band was touring around many different places and venues. And so, they ended up booking the tickets for a concert on a different continent. The band was set to play in their hometown a week later.
Stop Clowning Around!
Pets require care — be it dogs, cats, rabbits, or fish. Ensuring consistent oxygen in the aquarium is important for a fish’s survival. This guy bought a beautiful aquarium and filled it with rare and expensive fish such as clownfish.
Sadly, he didn’t invest that much in oxygen supply. The faulty oxygen pump stopped working on the second day, causing the fish to lose the battle with their lives.
One Size Too Small
Because a lot of brands aren’t size-inclusive, shopping can come with plenty of challenges. A size small from ‘X’ brand can be similar to a size medium from ‘Y’ brand. This poor guy fell victim to this confusion when he ordered a panda suit in a size medium.
It was too tight for him and most importantly – not eligible for refund or exchanges. Hmm, not a customer friend policy, we say!
A chihuahua is a pint-sized dog breed, meaning that they can easily fit in a small bag — just as Elle Woods did with Bruiser! This person inadvertently hurt his neighbor’s chihuahua, who excitedly ran towards him as he was turning on his motorbike.
Unmindful of his yelps, the guy started his bike and ended up crushing one of the pup’s legs in the process. Not only did he have to pay veterinary fees, but he also had to face the wrath of his neighbor.
Used & Abused
This golden-hearted person helped his needy friend financially when she was going through a crisis. He lent her a really big amount just on the basis of goodwill without drawing up any sort of official documentation.
Months later, when he asked her to return the money, his friend shut the door on him and refused to acknowledge him. She then went on to spread malicious lies about him that he tried to come on to her.
Bangkok = Sri Lanka
This person’s secretary goofed up the boss’ booking, and ended up putting him on the wrong flight. She was supposed to schedule him on a flight to Bangkok, but she ended up booking a flight for Sri Lanka.
We still cannot comprehend how she made this blunder. But, we hope that she still had a job when this guy returned from his unplanned trip to Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, she could buy a map and familiarize herself with the names of popular places.
People make a lot of mistakes when they’ve had too much to drink. They call up their exes, divulge too many secrets about themselves, and do various other embarrassing things. This guy, however, did no such thing.
Instead, he bought a lifetime subscription to learn Japanese — and it only cost $1,500! He realized his folly only the next day when he sobered up. Maybe he was watching Japanese anime and couldn’t understand what they were saying, so he decided that he may have to learn the language.
Signing Me Up!
This guy literally ‘signed up’ for his problems. He was his aunt’s guarantor as she needed a loan for a four-wheeler. But, little did he know that he was a pawn in his aunt’s charade.
As soon as his aunt bought the car, she fled to an undisclosed location and stopped making payments. The bank caught the guy and made him pay on her behalf. The payments were so huge that the guy had to take another loan to clear his aunt’s loan.
Caught in a Lie
Job interviews can be pretty stressful, and perhaps that’s what the point is — to check how a candidate performs under stress. The interviewees have the chance to speak about themselves in a positive light; to discuss their professional achievements. Still, the key is to remain as honest as possible.
Sadly, this guy lied about his work experience. It didn’t take long for the experienced manager to catch his lies. One question led to another, and the guy was disqualified on the grounds of dishonesty.
