FOOD: People Hold Candlelight Vigil For Burned Down Taco Bell + More

1. A Taco Bell in Alabama burned down last week,

Here's someone at the vigil singing an original song about Taco Bell's "Baha Blast" flavor of Mountain Dew.

5. A Person Returned a Sandwich Because One Half Was Larger Than the Other

You've got to have one HELL of an obsessive-compulsive side not just to NOTICE something like this but then to act on it.

A person in New South Wales, Australia returned a sandwich to a restaurant last week after they noticed one of the halves was one centimeter BIGGER than the other. That's less than half an inch. They even wrote the measurements on the halves.

And the restaurant actually took the sandwich back and gave the person a new one.
