Today on Yup That Exists, A company that will frame your tattoos after you die, A Real Life Super Mario Mushroom, and a Movie theatre with beds.
1. A company that will frame your tattoos after you die
There’s a company called Save My Ink that will preserve tattoos for your loved ones when you die. They’ve developed a unique proprietary process that can extract the tattoos from the deceased body.
For roughly $1000 dollars, depending on the size of the piece, customers have the option between several different frames, and each tattoo will be stored behind solid UV protective glass.
The company was founded by Kyle Sherwood, and his father and a friend, who is also a funeral embalmer. Their goal was to create more options for a keepsake after the death of a loved one, and what better than some of the magnificent pieces of art on their bodies.
2. The Real Life Super Mario Mushroom
Those classic Super Mario mushrooms are actually based on a real life Fungiuscalled Amanita Muscaria. They’re a psychoactive fungus which, if ingested, makes the person feel like they are growing in size. Hence why Mario grows when he gets a mushroom.
Other symptoms can range from nausea and twitching to drowsiness, audio and visual distortions, mood changes, euphoria, relaxation, and loss of balance. The effects of the mushroom are also referenced in Alice in Wonderland, when Alice grows inside the house.
3. Movie theatre with beds
The Electric Cinema in London, England offers movie goers beds to lie in while they watch their movie. The beds were put in the entire front row of the theatre as a solution to those awful neck breaking front row seats. Guests can now sprawl out, bring their own blankets and pillows, and view the film in a much easier comfortable fashion.
The cinema has been around for over 100 years, and the rest of their seats aren’t too shabby either. Offering up 65 plush velvet armchair seats with matching footstools and 3 velvet sofas in the back row. A trip to see a movie here will cost you 20 pounds, but to rent out a double bed is only 18 pounds. Which really makes getting stuck in the front row, not such a bad thing.
