Cheetos Is Opening a New Restaurant With Nothing But Food Made With Cheetos

  I don’t know if this place counts as fine dining, but I DO know people are going to be lining up for hours to get in.

Cheetos is opening a pop-up restaurant in New York City next Tuesday that ONLY serves food made with Cheetos.  Some of the highlights are . . .

1.  Grilled cheese filled with cheese, bacon, tomatoes, and Cheetos.

2.  Mac and cheese made with white cheddar and a Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch Cheeto crust.

3.  Tacos with chicken, veggies, and Flamin’ Hot Limon Cheetos on top.

4.  Nachos that use Cheetos instead of tortilla chips.

5.  And a CHEESECAKE with a Cheetos crust.

The restaurant will only be open for three days, but if it goes well, they’ll probably be doing it again.  And they’ll also be releasing a recipe book if you want to make the stuff yourself.

The Guy Who Invented Those Annoying Rules For Choosing Your Passwords Now Says He Regrets Them

If you’re wondering WHY every place makes you pick a password with at least one capital letter, one number, and one symbol, it’s because of one guy.

Bill Burr worked for the National Institute of Standards and Technology in 2003, and he was put in charge of coming up with the rules for good passwords . . . even though he wasn’t a security expert and didn’t even know that much about the subject.

And now, he says he’s SORRY.  There’s two reasons:  One, because those passwords are super annoying . . . and two, because more research has proven they’re not even that effective.

It turns out that passwords that are LONGER are much more secure.

If your password is four random common words . . . like, say, “purple-trombone-dancing-bucket” . . . that would take hackers HUNDREDS of years longer to hack than our current shorter, randomized passwords.

Plus it’s easier to remember.


The New England Patriots Are The First NFL Team to Buy Their Own Private Plane

  For the first time, an NFL team has bought its own PLANE to fly to games, and NOT surprisingly it’s the New England Patriots . . . who have won FIVE of the past 15 Super Bowls, and probably deserve to be spoiled.

Hate it all you want, but let’s be honest, the Cleveland Browns aren’t buying planes.  They can’t even buy a WIN at home . . . at the end of the season . . . when the other team is resting its starters for the playoffs.

The Patriots actually bought TWO 767 Boeing wide-body jets and had them retrofitted with all first-class seats, some of which recline all the way.

The outside of at least one of the planes has the team logo . . . with their five Lombardi trophies printed on the tail.  (Which is sort of the equivalent of wearing a Canali suit, and intentionally leaving the price tag on to show it off.)

Brand new planes like these could cost $200 million each . . . but these were probably used, which generally cost between $5 million and $65 million, depending on their mileage and condition.
