Problems need solutions or they become disasters, so when problems arise the solution minded leap into action and make the tough calls necessary to nip those problems in the bud.
Worried about a skyrocketing suicide rate in your country? Problem solvers in South Korea handle it by throwing funerals for the living, letting them lie in the coffin and attend their own funeral to better appreciate life.
Female workers too stressed out in the office? Japanese problem solvers came up with a suitably Japanese solution- hire hunks to wipe away their tears and make them feel better after work.
Both of those strange solutions seem to actually work, but thinking outside the box doesn't always lead to an innovative solution, as performance artist Mark McGowan learned the hard way.
He heard Prince Philip beat a fox to death during a hunt and decided to protest this royal act of animal cruelty by eating meatballs made from a Corgi that died of natural causes, Corgis being the Queen's favorite breed.
The stunt was largely ignored by the public, and Prince Philip was declared innocent of animal abuse, so it seems all Mark's stunt had succeeded in proving is Corgis are not a very tasty breed.
