The 40-Year-Old Twinkie

This is a testament to the power of preservatives – and a good reason why we should rethink what we eat.

40-years ago, in 1976, Roger Bennatti a chemistry teacher in Maine was teaching a lesson on food additives and decided to do a science experiment for his kids.  He gave one of his students some money and sent them to a nearby store to buy some Twinkies. 

When they returned, he put the Twinkie on the blackboard and told the class to monitor it as the school year progressed.

40-years later, the Twinkie remains!  It’s a little dusty, but other than that, it doesn’t look any different than it did 4 decades ago.

Hostess, the company that makes Twinkies, is not commenting.

Man Gets Entire Plane To Himself!

Can you imagine having an entire plane to yourself – all for the price of a ticket in coach!??

Well, it happened to one man in Atlanta.  Steven Schneider bought a coach ticket on a Delta flight from New Orleans to Atlanta on Tuesday.  But there were a long series of delays and all of the passengers managed to reschedule their flights – except Steven.

Once Delta had the flight ready, Steven was the only person on board.  The flight normally seats about 160 people, but the plane had to make the trip to Atlanta with or without Steven, so they took-off with just 1 passenger.

Steven says it was the best flight of his life.


Parents Trying to Get Photos at a Kindergarten Graduation Got Into a Massive Brawl

Life today is ALL about getting a good Instagram photo, so I am SO not surprised by this story.

An elementary school in Brooklyn, New York was having a kindergarten graduation ceremony on Friday morning.  And of course all of the parents were jockeying for position to get great photos of their kids.

But that turned into pushing and shoving and yelling, then it spiraled into an all-out BRAWL.  All of those parents eventually got kicked out.  There's no word if any of them got arrested.

Fortunately the kids didn't see the fight.  They were actually being WELL BEHAVED, unlike their parents, and they were lining up to get their diplomas.
