Great Big Story meets Brian Edwards, an airport operations supervisor at Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Michigan, and his real-life Air Bud, Piper, who's tasked with the important job of keeping planes safe from bird strikes.
"Birds can pose a huge threat to flight safety, but when they see Piper on his way, geese, ducks and gulls flee the runways. It’s an important job, but not one without its share of fun."

Not that I particularly have a problem with Wally World, but it's a little scary to me when any one player controls such a large portion of the market.

In the cold-war craze of the 50's, the government was faced with many survival decisions, including just what to feed all the huddled masses in their underground bunkers and shelters. After much study, they hit upon bulgur wheat, a key ingredient in middle-Eastern cuisine and an especially hardy and common grain. From that, 20 billion pounds of all-purpose survival crackers came into being.

“Oh, you’re just blowing smoke up my ass,” is something you might hear someone say when they think you’re just telling them what they want to hear. But in 18th-century England, blowing smoke up one’s ass was an actual medical procedure, and no, we aren’t kidding.

You've probably heard the warning every year since you were a kid: Don't eat those little silver balls on your Christmas cookies, because they’re "poisonous." Those small round decorations are officially called silver dragées - dragée being the general term for a tiny confectionery coated in hard sugar - and they've been haunting the Food and Drug Administration for over a century.

The Los Angeles City Council was taking public commentary on a proposal to ban house parties in the Hollywood Hills recently. Local rager Chad Kroeger and his hetero lifemate JT Parr exercised their rights as citizens to do just that... and quite frankly, America is better for it.

While restoring an 18th century statue, Spanish historians found what appears to be a makeshift time capsule in an unlikely place - the buttocks of a statue. Two handwritten letters, yellow with age, were inside. They're dated from 1777 and signed by Joaquín Mínguez, a chaplain from the Burgo de Osma cathedral.
