Thinking out of the box with drinking cup lids:

It’s been a while. Got caught up in everything from interviews and job hunting to graduation, and now I’m working on immigration paperwork.

However, as soon as I saw this I was instantly inspired to put it up. I felt like this picture can demonstrate the ‘thought process’ behind thinking out of the box. It’s all about metaphors, like I said in my previous post. Take something that is very familiar to people, and turn it into something that’s not, giving that ‘something that’s not’ a lot of emphasis. 
Turning a straw into a car exhaust pipe.. it can actually have the effect of ‘emphasizing’ with the world how it would feel to have all these poisonous gasses filling up the world.
Anyway, try substituting something that everybody knows with whatever you’re trying to emphasize, Very effective method to get your point across!
