It’s National Donut Day! Here’s How to Get Free Donuts

It’s National Donut Day! Here’s How to Get Free Donuts

A bunch of donut places are giving out FREE DONUTS for National Donut Day today.  You can get a free donut at participating Krispy Kreme locations.  You don’t even have to buy anything.  (Find the closest participating location here.)

You can also get a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts if you buy a drink.  (Check out a few more donut deals here.)

It’s not just a made-up holiday to sell donuts though.  The Salvation Army started it in 1938 to honor a group of women who handed out donuts to soldiers in World War One to boost morale.  So it goes back about 80 years.  Now you know.

What’s More Impressive? The Beefcake in the Foreground, or the Old Dude in the Background?

Some guy who’s in crazy shape posted a video where he does handstand push-ups while balancing on a bunch of dumbbells that are stacked ten feet high. But it’s mostly a hit online because of what’s going on in the background.

He’s in the middle of a gym, and there’s an old, white-haired guy shooting free throws behind him. He takes five shots in 40 seconds, and never misses.

Happy Pancake Day!

A Guy Is Using His Frequent Flyer Miles to Fly Strangers Home for Christmas

A Guy Is Using His Frequent Flyer Miles to Fly Strangers Home for Christmas

miles-arr

There’s a 44-year-old guy in New York named Peter Shankman who does business seminars all over the world. So he racks up a lot of frequent flyer miles, and uses most of them to get plane tickets for his friends and family.

But he’s also using a bunch of them this year to buy tickets for complete STRANGERS who can’t afford to fly home for Christmas.

He’s been asking people to explain why they deserve a free ticket on the site Imgur.com. (Pronounced image-er.)

The ones who get the most votes by 5:00 P.M. Eastern today will get the tickets. So HE’S not choosing who gets them, the Internet is. (It’s probably too late to get in on the action, but this story explains how to apply for a free ticket.)

He says he has enough miles to fly three or four people round-trip. Or more depending on where each person’s going.

If this sounds familiar, it’s because he did the same thing last year. And he also sent six people home for the holidays back in 2013, which inspired OTHER people to do it. So about 25 people ended up getting free tickets that year.

By the way, if YOU have a bunch of frequent flyer miles you want to donate to someone, there’s actually a website you can go through now called Abroaders.com.

The Best Motivational Tool Is . . . Free Pizza?

The Best Motivational Tool Is . . . Free Pizza?

Untitled-1

Have you ever promised your kids pizza if they behave or do well on a test? Well it doesn’t stop working just because you grow up.

A researcher at Duke University wanted to find out what would motivate people to work harder . . . a small bonus, props from their boss, or free pizza. And PIZZA did surprisingly well.

He did the study at a factory in Israel that makes computer chips, and sent three emails to three different groups of workers every day for a week.

One said they’d get free pizza if they met a certain goal by the end of the day . . . another said they’d get a compliment from their boss . . . and the third one said they’d get a $30 bonus.

And on day one, the employees who got pizza did more work than ANYONE. It increased productivity by 6.7%, just edging out a compliment from the boss at 6.6%.

For some reason, a $30 bonus actually made people do LESS work. They were about 5% more productive on the first day . . . but did 13% less work than normal on day two . . . and 6.5% less over the course of the week.

A compliment from the boss ended up having the biggest impact over the course of the entire week, and pizza was a close second. But that might be because we just don’t want pizza five days in a row.
