1.) What would you do to receive a 15% raise where you work? Not everyone is given this option, but the employees at Rapid Realty in New York City are getting the pay bump for getting a tattoo of the company’s logo. The owner says he got the idea from an employee who got the tattoo on his own. There's no rule on how big the tattoo has to be, or where you have to put it on your body. As long as you get one, you get the raise. So far, 40 employees have taken the deal, and gotten Rapid Realty tattoos. And, the owner covers the cost of getting the tattoo.
2.) While grab a Bud with friends at a bar is a good way to socialize, it’s not social network enough, at least not in Brazil. So Budweiser has developed the “Buddy Cup.” When you tap that cup with another of its kind, it allows the two cup holders to become Facebook friends – there’s no need to put down the beer, take out the phone, search for a name and then send a friend request – the ‘Buddy Cup” takes care of it for you. Don’t look for the “Buddy Cup” at any Lowcountry bars anytime in soon - the company said this is a Brazil-only program for now.
3.) If you’ve always wanted to add “Polar Bear Watcher” to your resume, here’s your opportunity. A remote region in Norway needs an official polar bear spotter this summer. The idea is to keep your eyes peeled for bears, then yell like crazy if one shows up to warn nearby scientists to take cover. You’ll need experience with guns, but officials say you probably won't need to use one, as long as you have a loud voice to scare the bears. If you’re wondering why they need a spoter, Polar bears outnumber humans 3,000 to 2,400 in the region.
