  • Pizza-Pulling Reindeer Didn’t Work Out for Domino’s (Watch)

    12/05/2016 7:44:13 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 10 replies
    Think it would be cool to get your pizza delivered by an actual reindeer? You’re not alone. In fact, Domino’s recently tried to make this very thing happen in Japan. For the holiday season, the pizza chain announced that it would have reindeer pulling sleds with pizza deliveries on them. Then customers could track their pizzas by GPS just like with regular deliveries. However, the idea didn’t exactly work out. As it turns out, it’s much more difficult to train reindeer than those old Christmas stories make it out to be. Or maybe they only listen to Santa. Either way,...

  • Andrew Breitbart tweet before death adds fuel to online speculation of D.C. sex-trafficking ring

    Explosive claims by Internet sleuths, which were prompted after reading stolen documents belonging to Mr. Podesta, have been derided as “viciously phony” by Fox News’ Howard Kurtz. A tweet by Mr. Breitbart shortly before his March 1, 2012, death is now being cited by online researchers as proof that they are onto something big. “How prog-guru John Podesta isn’t household name as world class underage sex slave op cover-upperer defending unspeakable dregs escapes me,” Mr. Breitbart wrote Feb. 4, 2011. The conservative icon’s death at age 43 was attributed to “heart failure.” “Hi John, The realtor found a handkerchief (I...

    I’ve got some good news and some bad news. Let’s start with the bad news: this is one of those unpleasant, disturbing articles that I sometimes write here at CDP. It deals with a topic that I wish didn’t exist to be reported. But reality is what it is, so we might as well face it head-on. Which brings me to the good news: “The truth shall set you free.” That teaching is, of course, from Jesus, found in the Gospel of Sty.

    WASHINGTON — Days before the presidential election, James Alefantis, owner of a local pizza restaurant called Comet Ping Pong, noticed an unusual spike in the number of his Instagram followers. Within hours, menacing messages like “we’re on to you” began appearing in his Instagram feed. In the ensuing days, hundreds of death threats — one read “I will kill you personally” — started arriving via texts, Facebook and Twitter. All of them alleged something that made Mr. Alefantis’s jaw drop: that Comet Ping Pong was the home base of a child abuse ring led by Hillary Clinton and her campaign...

    The fallout from Wikileaks dump of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails hasn’t ended yet. According to a dedicated group of Internet sleuths with a lot of time on their hands and a predilection for conspiracy theories that go straight to the top, Hillary Clinton and her top aides, Podesta included, are “implicated” in a child sex trafficking ring that involves the DC elite, an occultist, and Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza parlor. At its core, “PizzaGate” theorists allege that Clinton and Podesta are involved with a pedophile ring that operates out of the aforementioned DC pie joint....

    It looks like the news about Comet Pizza has been reported in Turkey, and their Twitter accounts now comprise probably 90% of those talking about PizzaGate on Twitter. Interesting how those in a foreign country come to the exact same conclusion about the evidence as those in the "alt right" come to. It looks like many of them are afraid that Muslim migrant children are being sacrificed. A month ago I would think they're crazy, now I'm thinking they're probably right to a certain degree. I copied and pasted a lot of their messages through Google Translate. Here's what they're...

    Say you have a great meal at Comet Ping Pong and want to leave the Upper Northwest restaurant a four- or five-star review. That's impossible right now because Yelp has activated its "Active Cleanup Alert" placeholder that prevents Yelp users from leaving reviews when an establishment is battling a controversial news story. "The most sickening part of this vicious attack has been the stealing of Instagram images, Facebook images of children, minors, aged 5, 7, and 8 years old that are then slapped across their chat boards as nothing but pawns," Alefantis says. "Yes, it’s scary to be attacked, it’s...

    Classified as an oily fish, Anchovies are a family of small, common salt-water forage fish. There are 144 species found in the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Oceans. Anchovies are small, green fish that have blue reflections caused by the silver longitudinal stripe which begins at the base of the caudal fin. Traditionally, anchovies are processed in a salt brine and then packed in oil or salt resulting in a strong, characteristic flavor. Optionally they may be pickled in vinegar giving the anchovies a milder taste.

But one New York City chef used a far more revolutionary method to lose an astounding 94 pounds: the Pizza Diet. Naples, Italy, native Pasquale Cozzolino, 38, moved to New York in 2011 to work at Midtown’s PizzArte, and he quickly packed on the pounds. The 6-foot-6-inch chef weighed a healthy 254 pounds when he first got off the plane, but his waistline expanded as he made efforts to familiarize himself with the city’s restaurants and turned...

The study, published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, examines why certain foods are more addictive than others. Researchers identified addictive foods from about 500 students who completed the Yale Food Addiction Scale, designed to measure if someone has a food addiction. Pizza, unsurprisingly, came...
