When 16 year old John Paul Getty III was kidnapped in 1973, his billionaire grandfather refused to pay $17 million ransom. After the kidnappers mailed Getty's ear to a newspaper, his grandfather only agreed to pay $2.2 million because that was the maximum amount that was tax deductible.

There was a footballer that staged his whole career as a striker for 24 years, playing for 9 teams in total, he could barely kick a ball. He retired with 0 goals and 0 assists. His name was Carlos Kaiser.

At the French side Ajaccio he was horrified to see a crowd of fans waiting to witness the first training session of their new Brazilian superstar and so took every single football on the pitch and kicked them to his adoring spectators, all whilst kissing the club’s crest and proclaiming loudly about how much he means to them. The team then could only do physical training like running as they had no footballs to kick around.

McDonalds ran a promotional campaign in Sweden to name a hamburger for their fall menu earlier this year (2013). An eSports enthusiast, who would go on to win the competition, decided to name his entry after his favorite eSports team Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP).

The McNiP will be available for a week in Sweden's McDonalds starting October 29th. The burger comes between a sesame seed bun with hot sauce, dry roasted onions, iceberg lettuce, and two layers of melted cheddar.

Apes don't ask questions. While apes can learn sign language and communicate using it, they have never attempted to learn new knowledge by asking humans or other apes. They don't seem to realize that other entities can know things they don't. It's a concept that separates mankind from apes.
