And one of the answers he received will blow you away.

Take A Trip On The Black Hole Water Slide [VIDEO]

Alas, the Hartford pool is long gone. Never in a million years would I imagine seeing a slide like this at an indoor leisure pool at Bremerhaven, Germany. Check out the "Bad 1".

A Global Chocolate Shortage By 2020?

When I read about this, and by the way, it's not as bad as it sounds, I immediately thought of a scene from season 4 of The Walking Dead. I've noticed during the zombie apocalypse in the series, you don't see a lot of chocolate, but last season, one character (I won't spoil who) indulged in a giant can of chocolate pudding he found while searching for food.
