Pizza has the power to save the day.

We all know this, but the following sweet story only emphasizes this fact of life.


Passengers on an Air Canada flight were stranded for hours on snowy tarmac Air Canada Flight 608 left Toronto bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Monday evening.

Inclement weather forced the flight to divert to Fredericton, New Brunswick. The passengers were stuck for several hours and were growing progressively more cranky, as passengers in such a situation are apt to do.

Then the pilot decided to order pizza.

Jofee Larivée, the manager at Minglers Restaurant and Pub in Oromocto, told reporters he received the call for 23 pizzas topped with cheese and pepperoni.

"We told him we could have them made in an hour or hour and a half," Larivée said, adding that she and her staff were "laughing all night" because no one had ever delivered pizza to an airplane before.

The team made the pizzas and brought them over.

The passengers were pleased!

Passenger Philomena Hughes praised the pilot's action:

"It was something that could have been very stressful; he made it a lot easier. There was lots of help, there were a couple of Air Canada Jazz pilots that were traveling on the plane and they were helping to pick up the pizza and distribute it. Everybody chipped in, so he didn't want to take the whole credit for himself."

She wasn't the only one who loved this:





Kudos to you, sir. That was lovely and thoughtful of you––and it gave all of the passengers a great memory for years to come.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
