Clipped Wings: Red Bull is handing out up to $13 million for not actually giving you wings.
The energy drink giant has settled a pair of class action lawsuits for false advertising.
The suits claimed people were misled by the slogan and the advertised benefits of increased performance, improved concentration, and better reaction speed.
Promises the still wingless drinkers call false.
Red Bull has denied any wrongdoing but has settled in order prevent further litigation.
The settlement entitles anyone who bought a red bull product from 2002 until last Friday to a cash settlement of $10 or $15 worth of Red Bull products.
Quid Pro Quo: Thailand is taking a stand against policemen taking bribes by offering them bribes.
The government wants to provide a financial incentive for cops to turn down freebies as part of an effort to combat the ingrained culture of corruption within the police force.
And it appears to be working.
The country's police major general announced that two policemen were awarded the equivalent of $310 for refusing a $3 bribe.
In Thailand, bribes are commonly used to get out of minor traffic offenses.
Final Exit: Finally, the last remnants of the metric system on the interstate highway system may be heading for an exit.
Signs like this one use the metric system in Arizona for a stretch of 60 miles -- or about 100 kilometers.
The markers are the last remaining relic of a failed Carter administration pilot program aimed at convincing Americans to adopt the measuring system used by much of the rest of the world.
The state was planning to replace the signs because of wear and tear and converting them to miles.
One supporter admitted the conversion would make things simpler.
Quote -- "When I'm driving, I definitely can't do that math."
The plan was stalled after business owners complained about exit numbers and road markers changing which would force them to update marketing materials.
Officials say they will seek public input before making a final decision.
