Kaden's Crazy News: Two 70-Year-Old Men Get Into a Fist Fight Over Free Samples at Costco

Frankly I'm surprised something like this doesn't happen at a Costco every single weekend.  Free samples do strange things to otherwise normal people.



A 70-year-old guy was at a Costco in Greenville, South Carolina on Sunday and he was patiently waiting in line for a free cheese sample.  Then, suddenly, a 72-year-old man CUT the line, grabbed some cheese, and walked off.



The 70-year-old let it go . . . but then, when he was in line for a free cheeseburger sample and he saw the 72-year-old coming to pull the same move again, he had to do something.



He confronted the guy . . . and the guy HIT him in the head and knocked off his hat and glasses.



The cops came, but after they talked to both of the guys and some witnesses, they decided not to make any arrests.

Facebook adds tools to help users track time spent — and set time limits

 Facebook announced on Wednesday new features meant to help people manage and limit the amount of time they spend on the company's apps.

The new tools give users their daily average of time spent on both the Facebook and Instagram apps, as well as the ability to set a time limit for daily use and mute app notifications for a specific time period.

The new features come amid growing concerns from mental health experts and a vocal group of technologists about the impact social media is having on people.


Ameet Ranadive, product management director at Instagram, and David Ginsberg, director of research at Facebook, wrote in a blog post that the new features were designed with the goal of addressing these issues.

“We developed these tools based on collaboration and inspiration from leading mental health experts and organizations, academics, our own research and feedback from our community,” Facebook wrote in a blog post. “We want the time people spend on Facebook and Instagram to be intentional, positive and inspiring.”

Instagram and Facebook have already been updating and improving the apps to help users limit and enjoy their time online. Facebook added new feature to its News Feed that allowed people to hide posts, unfollow people and snooze keywords, while Instagram created the “You’re All Caught Up” indicator, which tells people when they have seen all updates in their feed.

“It’s not just about the time people spend on Facebook and Instagram but how they spend that time,” Ranadive and Ginsberg wrote in the post. “It’s our responsibility to talk openly about how time online impacts people — and we take that responsibility seriously. These new tools are an important first step, and we are committed to continuing our work to foster safe, kind and supportive communities for everyone.”
