The mother of Hazel Hammersley, a young cancer patient at Los Angeles's Children's Hospital, passed the time by jokingly requesting a pizza delivery on the window to her child's room. When anonymous internet donations started bringing in pie after pie, the entire fourth floor of the hospital was able to join in on a pizza party!

After World War I, military development and testing had reached an unprecedented height. The recent developments in technology had given birth to new inventions that changed the landscape of the battlefield. Two machines in particular emerged in the previous decades that had never been used on a large scale; tanks and airplanes. The next step was obvious - combine the two.

America, Russia and England all tinkered with the idea of transporting the grounded beasts, but the USSR really led the way. After attempts at parachuting mini-tanks from bombers, they hired engineer Oleg Antonov to design a dedicated glider that could parachute full-sized tanks.

After years of development and multiple failures, the project was finally scrapped when the Soviets finally acknowledged there was no plane in existed that could carry the weight of a tank. Fortunately the world never had to experience the fear of a tank gliding 200mph through the air, and the scientist began their work on flying sharks.

This is what you should do if you don't want to stand around holding down the toaster's broken toast lever. I mean really! I've got places to be! Like the fridge and the cupboard...
