Ex-robber returns money + interest over a decade later

An ex-robber wrote an apology letter and enclosed the money he had stolen over a decade earlier.

The robber had stolen $300 and a 6-pack of beer from Interasian Market and Deli in Nashville, Tenn, according to the letter. The owner, Somboon Wu, told local TV station WMSV that he received the letter last week, which included $400.

“I do not use drugs anymore, and I feel I must make amends to the people I have hurt in the past. I hope you will accept this money and find forgiveness. Peace be with you. Anonymous.”

Wu said the man must have been in a bad situation, but has a good heart. “We just want to let him know, if he’s watching, wherever life takes you, we forgive you for what you did,” said Wu.

YouTube, you too?

Every 60 seconds, 48 hours worth of video are uploaded to YouTube. That’s 2,880 hours of video every hour, or 69,120 hours of material uploaded every day.

If you break it down, that is almost 8 years worth of video uploaded to YouTube on an average day.

Wonder no more!

If you’re not familiar with the game of football and thought the yellow line was actually on the field, you wouldn’t be the first. However, you have some learning to do. Brush up on your Football 101 at this Wikipedia link here.
