City Of Boston Is Allowing Smokers To Vote With Their Butts


(PCM) The city of Boston has come up with quite a unique idea for getting rid of the dirty cigarette butts that often litter the city’s streets. They have no placed special receptacles in seven select higher traffic areas of the city that allow smokers to vote on a simple question.

The cigarette butt receptacles each feature two disposal holes and each is decorated with a question that only has two possible answers. Smokers can answer the question by tossing their butt into which answer they agree with more.

For example, one butt receptacle asks smokers: “Which superpower would you want?” Smokers can deposit their butts in an opening for “Flight” or for “Invisibility.”

It is definitely a unique way to collect survey data and have some fun while attempting to clean up the city streets.  The cigarette butt receptacles in total cost the city about $3,000, however compared with street clean-up costs, it is definitely more of a bargain.

The receptacles are part of the city’s Neat Streets program and users who would like to suggest a question to be printed on the next round of butt receptacles are urged to tweet suggestion to #NeatStreetsBros.

Burger King Announces Plans To Add Hot Dogs To Their Menu


(PCM) Burger King has revealed that they are now looking to capture another crown and have announced plans to add flame-grilled hot dogs to their menu beginning on February 23rd. With the launch, Burger King restaurants will serve hot dogs in more restaurants than any other restaurant chain in the U.S.! The company feels that it is a natural fit for their brand and when the hot dogs were offered in various test markets, they performed very well with consumers.

The new Grilled Hot Dogs will be a permanent menu items for Burger King restaurants.  The Grilled Dogs will be available in both the Classic Grilled Dog and the Chili Cheese Grilled Dog. The Classic Grilled Dog is a flame-grilled hot dog made with 100% beef topped, with ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and relish, served on a fluffy baked bun. The Chili Cheese Grilled Dog is the same beef hot dog topped with warm chili, shredded cheddar cheese and served on a fluffy baked bun. Both are sold separately or as a combo meal.

To get workers excited, Burger King even enlisted Snoop Dogg and Charo to star in training videos for making the hot dogs, however those training videos are not made for public viewing, but only for internal use. Something tells us those will leak out sometime in the near future!

‘Game Of Thrones’ Road In Northern Ireland Is Painted By Mistake!


(PCM) Fans of the hit HBO series “Game Of Thrones” who often flock to areas in Northern Ireland where the series is filmed, were shocked when visiting one of the series most iconic locations and found that road crews had accidentally painted white lines down the middle of Kingsroad! Opps!

Dark Hedges is one of the tourists most eagerly anticipated sites, so you can only imagine their dismay to find the stark white lines painted down the middle of the gorgeous country road that provides the ethereal and otherworldly backdrop for Kingsroad, which serves as the central path through the mythical world of Westeros.

Government officials in Ireland claim that the road painting was definitely a mistake and promise that the paint will be cleared off the famous roadway later this week. It is a bit of a shame for tourists visiting the area, as their photographs of Kings Road now show the white lines, rather than just pavement, however it most likely would not have affected any filming for the series, as the creators use special effects to cover up the roads paved surface.

NASA Claims Meteorite Did Not Kill A Man In India


(PCM) The news recently broke that a bus driver was killed and three other people were injured in India after being struck by a meteorite that rained down upon a college campus. It would have been the very first confirmed death due to the impact of a meteorite, however it now appears that this may not be true.

Witness’s on the scene recall hearing a large explosion and authorities recovered a black, pockmarked stone from the site of what appears to be a large crater five feet deep and two feet wide. The image has been circulating online and many initially felt that it resembled the type of indentation that a meteorite would make if it crashed upon the earth, however there was no meteorite shower predicted nor observed on that particular day. Experts say it would have been an incredibly rare phenomenon.

NASA has weighed in on the controversy and they say according to the New York Times, “the photos posted online were more consistent with a “land-based explosion” rather than something from space. NASA goes on to say that death by a meteorite explosion is so rare that one has never been scientifically confirmed in recorded history.  There have been some meteorite related injuries over the years but no deaths.

Meteorites are cool to the touch when they land and NASA feels that the image taken in India more than likely appeared to be nothing more than a common earth rock.

Talk about the power of pop culture! Reps from Red Lobster are deeming the sales increase the “Beyonce Bounce” and definitely credit her for the huge surge in sales.

After Beyonce dropped the “Formation” video, Red Lobster also became trending topic on Twitter for the first time ever. Red Lobster is incredibly grateful to Queen Bey and they jokingly tweeted “Cheddar Bey Biscuits” has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”.
