Special Report Grapevine: Red Bull paying for not living up to claims

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.

Special Report Grapevine: I'll take cliches for $1,000, Alex

Costly Error: A simple mistake caused one of the largest stock trading errors of all time this morning. An accidental stock order totaling $711 billion dollars-- that is larger than the size of Sweden's entire economy-- was made in Japan this morning. Included in that order-- almost two billion shares of Toyota-- more than half of all Toyota shares on the market. Upon further review the order was quickly cancelled when the error was noticed. Financial experts blame fat finger or clumsy typing for the mistake. 

Reporter Blocked: A reporter covering the First Lady's appearance at a campaign event this week says the White House tried to stop her from talking to the people in the audience. Michelle Obama was stumping for Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke Monday when Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter Meg Kissinger says she quote: "was told by a Mary Burke aide and one for the White House that I could not speak to the people in the crowd. To say that I was creeped out is an understatement. This is what reporters do in America -- we speak to people. At least that's how I've been doing things since 1979."

Based on the story she filed, Kissinger ignored that request. We have reached out to the First Lady's office and the Burke campaign for comment. We have not heard back.

In Jeopardy: Finally, America's favorite quiz show is under fire tonight for a category that many say was downright sexist. On Monday's episode of Jeopardy one of the categories was "What Women Want." The clues are being called stereotypical and offensive. One of them read "Some help around the house: Would it kill you to get out the Bissell bagless canister  every once in a while?"

The question: What is a vacuum cleaner? The other correct responses for what women want:  jeans, pilates,  a crossword puzzle, and sleepytime tea.

Viewers lashed out on Twitter. "Did you tape your recent episode in 1950? Or are dated, sexist stereotypes of women still alive and well for your writers?"

"What women want? What is equal pay? What is the right to make my own health decisions? What is treated like a human?" 

The Grapevine called the folks at Jeopardy. They said they had nothing to add.

Special Report Grapevine: Drive-Thru Funerals

Back To The Future: The Royal Canadian Air Force had to get creative when seeking out replacement parts for its search and rescue airplanes – they ended up raiding the National Air Force Museum. In July 2012 – according to documents just made public – two navigational parts were taken off a Hercules plane on display and installed in a similar craft still in use. The Search and rescue planes were supposed to be replaced starting in 2002, but none are on the horizon.

House Calls: A former VA supervisor has been sentenced to four years of probation, community service, and $15K in restitution after pleading guilty to theft of government property. Venita Godfrey-Scott, a supervisor in the facilities management service, directed VA employees to work on her private home, including installing a deck, putting in new carpet and bathroom improvements. The employees worked on her home during regular work hours and used her government issued credit card to purchase supplies.
