Domino’s Will Start Using Artificial Intelligence to Make Sure Your Pizza Isn’t Ugly

Have you ever ordered a pizza and when it got delivered, it was a DAMN MESS?  Like, there were only three pepperoni, the cheese slid off half of it, and the crust looked like it was still dangerously raw?

Domino’s has a “Terminator”-style plan to change that.

They’re going to start testing a new ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE system to hopefully stop subpar pizzas from being delivered.

It’s called the Pizza Checker, and it’s been trained to recognize what good and bad ones look like.  So it’ll take a picture of your pizza before it goes into a box, and then it’ll analyze the picture to make sure everything looks right.

If it doesn’t, they’ll send you a picture of your jacked up pizza and tell you they’re remaking it.

They’ll be testing the Pizza Checker at a bunch of stores in Australia next year.  And if it works well, they could roll it out worldwide.

Pay Phones Still Make Hundreds of Millions of Dollars a Year?

I’m not sure who still uses pay phones, but apparently the answer is “lots of people.”  Because those things are GOLDMINES.

According to Vice.com, just two years ago, pay phones across the country made a total of $286 MILLION.

And they estimate that every phone pulls in around $236 per year, which means they each get at least a few calls every day.  Who knew?

 

A Study Has Found That Psychopaths Listen to Justin Bieber

A while back, there was talk about a study that showed that psychopaths don’t really dig classical music, like Hannibal Lecter and other movie villains.  They actually prefer RAP and POP music.

New York University tested 200 people for psychopathic traits, and also had them listen to 260 songs . . . and now we have more details on the songs they liked.

All the results haven’t been published yet . . . but as it turns out, psychopaths dig JUSTIN BIEBER.  In particular, his song “What Do You Mean” was popular with subjects who scored high on the psychopathy scale.

Meanwhile, on the low end were “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits and the country song “Wayward Wind”, which was originally recorded by Gogi Grant in 1956, but has been covered by dozens of artists.

Psychopaths also like “Lose Yourself” by Eminem and “No Diggity” by Blackstreet . . . while non-psychos groove to “My Sharona” by The Knack.
