A bloke has been hailed as “hero” online after he pretended to be from head office to get free KFC for a year.

The student, 27, even turned up in a limo to fool staff at several of the popular chain’s restaurants.

Finger ‘nickin’ good fried chicken KFC.

One Man’s Quest to make 20-Year-Old Rum in just only Six Days

From the outside, the Lost Spirits Distillery is just another boxy, early-20th-century building along the frayed edge of downtown Los Angeles. At first the inside appears similarly uninspired: deep and unfinished, littered with cardboard boxes, plumbing fittings, spools of wire, inscrutable items made of copper, a forklift. The usual crap.

But what’s this then? A heavy black curtain bisects the industrial space from floor to ceiling, nearly from the front door to the back. Bryan Davis, the distillery’s founder and co-owner, pulls aside some folds and beckons me in.

It’s dark; my eyes adjust slowly. I’ve stumbled into a nighttime clearing deep in a tropical jungle—lush foliage and flowering vines lit by dozens of flickering candle lanterns. Are those crickets and cicadas and an occasional Jurassic Park bellow I hear? Yes. Yes, they are.

Davis imports young whisky from Scotland but makes his own Lost Spirits Navy rum from molasses.

THESE 15 FOODS ARE BEST NOT KEPT IN THE REFRIGERATOR

SOME FOODS ARE JUST BETTER IN SO MANY WAYS IF KEPT OUT OF THE FRIDGE

There is an interesting dynamic at play in the modern world, where some countries waste more food than they consume, while others are left to starve. In the US alone nearly 30 percent of available food supply went un-eaten in 2010, and the number keeps on rising. The problem doesn’t just stop at the grocery or retail store; food waste continues to be a problem at home, too. Sometimes you buy more produce than your family can consume, but chances are, MOST of the time you could be storing your food better–over 95% of food thrown away ends up in landfills. Of course, you can’t save every morsel of food; but you can eliminate the excess waste production, and if you’re already aware of the food situation at home you can donate any extra food before it spoils–everyone wins.
