March 14 is the international Pi Day when math enthusiasts around the world celebrate the famous constant Pi, equal to the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The reason Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 is because its first 3 digits are 3.14 (Pi = 3.1415926535...) March 14 also happens to be Albert Einstein's birthday. Pi is an irrational number, meaning that the sequence of its decimal digits continues to infinity without repeating itself.
The favorite way of celebrating Pi Day among geeks are eating a pie while reciting the first hundred digits of Pi.
To celebrate the upcoming Pi Day show how life would be different if Pi ruled the world. Some examples are - photoshop objects and animals shaped as Pi, show Pi in movies and paintings, etc.

March 8 is the International Women's Day (IWD), widely celebrated in Eastern Europe and post-Soviet countries like Russia, where it is an official holiday. Surprisingly, the first IWD was observed in 1909 in the United States when women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights.
To celebrate the International Women's Day, turn any male celebrities into women. Here's a good example by CAMEye0170. Please keep your entries Safe For Work.

The first eyeglasses were invented and made in Italy around 1280, and while their popularity grew, the first artwork that depicts sunglasses appeared only in 1352. It was a portrait of Cardinal Hugo of Provence at his writing desk, painted by Italian master Tomaso de Mondena.
The reason why eyeglasses were very rarely used in portraits was that on the design side they were quite bulky and ugly. It was not til the 19th century that eyeglasses became stylish, modern, and popular so much that people liked to be photographed and painted with them.
Let us show how famous paintings would look if characters there were depicted with eyeglasses (modern or antique). Please note that we focus on eyeglasses with lenses, not sunglasses. Please refer to the themepost example by Mundo.
Hollywood is obsessed with long legs, which are considered a standard of beautiful figure. That's the reason we often see celebrities wearing high-waisted pants and skirts, which create an illusion that their legs start higher. For the same reason short shirts, jackets and coats are favorite in Hollywood.
Let's not allow Hollywood fool us any more with their visual tricks - photoshop celebrities and politicians with really short legs AND long arms.

Thailand now entertains its tourists with a barbaric show - orangutan kick-boxing. The apes kickbox each other as a spectacle for tourists in a show lasting more than 30 minutes, before being returned to their dark cages. Other orangutans, dressed in bikinis, are trained as round card girls and bell ringers.
Photoshop animals participating in any official sports.
