    Phil Knight and Oregon track coach Bill Bowerman, got in hot water for ruining Bowerman's wife's waffle iron. Many years later the waffle iron and other waffle sole prototypes were found in a garbage pit on Bowerman's ranch. They're now at the NIKE museum in Beaverton.

    I read this and thought, this study had to have been paid for with a government grant.....scientists proved that ants find their way back to their nest by counting their steps. They did this by fitting ants with tiny stilts. I refuse to fact-check this.

    Apple briefly offered an iPhone app called "Send Me To Heaven", which calculated how high you could throw your phone. The creator later said his purpose was to break as many iPhones as possible. Apple deleted it after a number of customers complained about broken phones.
