Domino's stopped their 30-minute delivery policy because of reckless driving!


Back in the day, Domino’s promised the public that if their pizzas were not delivered within 30 minutes of the order being placed, that pizza would be free. Now, as you can imagine, a pizza company does not want to give away free pizzas. Therefore, they pressured their cooks and delivery people to meet the half hour dead-line. This led to the latter driving recklessly.

In 1992, Domino’s had to pay $2.8 million to a family of a woman who had been hit by a Dominos delivery car. Then in 1993, it paid $78 million to a woman for the injuries she received in a 1989 Dominos car accident. Dominos settled out of court for about $15 million but it was time for the policy to be scrapped.

A US soldier was getting put in a body bag when he spat blood in a doctor's face!


If you thought every action movie star was tough, wait until you hear what Roy Benavidez went through in just a few hours. After he and the unit he was serving in became suddenly surrounded by the North Vietnamese Army, he instinctively volunteered to run to the helicopter, all while being shot at, to help them find a landing zone so the other soldiers could escape.

After finding somewhere for the helicopter to land, he ran back to his unit. While running to his unit, he was shot in the leg, and a grenade went off right beside him launching shrapnel into his back. He convinced himself he was fine, and he just kept on running. He used a medic kit he brought from the helicopter to patch up a few of the wounded soldiers and they ran to the helicopter. Again, he was shot multiple times, and another grenade went off beside him.

The escape chopper crashed landed after the pilot was shot, and Benavidez dragged out all the injured, but alive, soldiers that were on the helicopter. After calling in numerous airstrikes, and fighting off a NVA soldier, who stabbed him in the bicep twice, Benavidez and the unit were rescued.

When the doctors saw Benavidez, they assumed he was dead! It wasn't until Benavidez was put in a body bag, when he spit blood in the doctor's face that the medical team tried to keep him alive! After a year of recovery, against all odds, Benavidez was released from the hospital.You HAVE to click the source and read the whole story!

Venice has always had exactly 425 licensed gondoliers. They were all men until 2010!


That’s right; it wasn’t until 2010 that authorities granted a woman a full license to show visitors the history and charm of Venice via waterway. Said woman is 24 year old, mother-of-two Giorgia Boscolo whose father was also a gondolier. She passed a year-long series of practical and written tests so that she could spend her days passing through Venice’s beautiful cannels.

The deputy mayor of Venice says that there has been “excessive male domination” inside the gondolier’s guild. In 2010, her employment was only part-time and conditional. She could only stand in for a male colleague if he wanted to take the day of. However, she hoped that one day she would have her own gondola tied up in front of St.Mark’s Basilica.

Kim Jong-Un collects Nikes!


Kim Jong Un’s hobbies include complaining about American consumerism and collecting Nike sneakers. Although to be fair, we don’t know for sure if he still has the Nike sneakers he started collecting as a teenager.

Apparently, in his younger days, Jong-Un was indifferent to politics and rebelled against his father’s anti-American propaganda by purchasing Nike shoes. Talk about stomping down on authority.

Jong Un was also really into basketball. According to his Swiss college friend, he was obsessed with Kobe Bryant, Toni Kukoc, Michael Jordon, and the LA Lakers. He allegedly owned photographs with NBA players and had a room filled with NBA-memorabilia.It’s nice to know that even dictators were once rebellious teenagers.
