Operation Christmas Drop

Cargo drops from a U.S. Air Force C-130 Hercules aircraft over the Pacific Ocean toward a landing zone on the shore of Kayangel Island during the 62nd annual Operation Christmas Drop Dec. 11, 2013. Christmas Drop started in 1952 as a training mission and has since become the longest running Department of Defense mission in full operation as well as the longest running humanitarian airlift in the world.

Every Christmas, the US Air Force performs Operation Christmas Drop – airdropping toys and other presents to children who live on remote Pacific islands.

Say goodbye to comfort breaks: Toilet designed to increase productivity

A British company developed most uncomfortable toilet ever — on purpose. A start-up company in the UK developed a new, downward-tilting toilet meant to make employees so uncomfortable in the loo that they take care of business quicker. The StandardToilet is slopped about 13 degrees forward to increase strain on the legs, making it painful to sit on for longer than five minutes.

“Anything higher than that would cause wider problems. Thirteen degrees is not too inconvenient, but you’d soon want to get off the seat quite quickly,” said Mahabir Gill, founder of the company.

South Dakota on Meth

South Dakota reportedly paid an advertising firm $449,000 to develop its new anti-meth campaign. The firm came up with the slogan, “Meth. We’re on it.”
The public reaction, so far, hasn’t been kind.
This is not South Dakota’s first tagline in the news. In 2015, South Dakota tourism used the tagline “why die on Mars, when you can live in South Dakota?”
