Reed Hastings, Netflix CEO, says the company is currently “exploring ways to limit account sharing,” but also notes that whatever they do “has to make sense to customers.” Right now, Netflix is testing ways to ensure those using the passwords are “authorized users.” It’s estimated that Netflix is losing $6-billion annually just due to password sharing…so it makes sense they’d want to get it back.

A recently-deceased Illinois man, who was an avid bowler, finally did something in death that he was never able to do when he was alive -- roll a perfect game. 39-year-old John Hinkle Jr. paid tribute to his late father by having a special bowling ball custom-made containing some of his dad's ashes. Then, he took it Landmark Lanes in Peoria and bowled a perfect game. Hinkle, a former NCAA bowling champion, says his father was a great bowler but never pulled off a perfect 300 score. He says, "It's special. Dad shot 298, 299, never had a 300. I had goosebumps, chills. He was there."
Fox News says Qantas Airlines recently charged an Australian comedian $770 million to buy a seat with extra legroom.

Quantas accidentally overcharged Dave. A Qantas representative says, "While we know that customers really value extra legroom, the price displayed was definitely a bit of a stretch." The charge was fixed.

Over the weekend, workers at a Burger King in Montana noticed a customer at the drive-thru was acting strangely around 3 p.m. After he sloppily placed his order, staff told him to pull up while his food was being cooked.

The police have also released the information that Brownell has previous convictions for the same thing, making this “his fourth or subsequent.” Great job by the crew at that Burger King to catch what was going on.
