‘Art’ used to be an Olympic sport. Artists were award gold, silver and bronze medals for architecture, painting, sculpture, music and literature across multiple Summer Olympics in the early 20th Century. The ‘arts’ were dropped from the Games because they drew too many professional artists.

Coca-Cola released a drink, Tab Clear, with the sole intention to be marketed so bad, that people wouldn’t want to drink it, in an attempt to ruin sales of Pepsico’s equivalent, Crystal Pepsi, by comparison. It worked.

There is a Starbucks where they don’t write your name on your cup: the one at the CIA’s headquarters. Baristas are escorted to and from work, and the receipts identify the establishment as simply “Store Number 1.”

“Police police Police police police police Police police.” is a valid sentence. Police is a city in Poland. Three different forms of the same word come into play above: law enforcement (the noun), the city (an adjunct noun/adjective), and the verb. We’ll can use substitutions to clarify the meaning — “patrol” for the verb form and “law enforcement” for the noun.Law enforcement from Police [that] [other] law enforcement from Police patrol [also] patrol law enforcement from Police.

The reason perfume is applied to necks and wrists, with behind the knees being the most ideal location, is because these are pulse points that will warm the perfume and continuously release fragrance.
