Getting paid to sleep would be a dream job.
Cherophobia is an irrational fear of fun or happiness.
That’s one phobia I wouldn’t like to have… it would probably mean they would fear these fun facts!
The Luftwaffe had a master interrogator whose tactic was being as nice as possible.
Hanns Scharff was a master interrogator who was very much against physical torture and brutality.
His techniques were so successful that the US military later incorporated his methods into their own interrogation schools.
Scharff’s best tactics for squeezing information out of prisoners included: nature walks without guards present, baking them homemade food, cracking jokes, drinking beers and afternoon tea with German fighter aces.
He even took trips to visit fellow POWs and swimming pool parties. And on some rare occasions even test flights of German fighter aircraft.

Best Provolone-Cheese Dishes in the U.S.
The gentle smokiness of provolone makes it a wonderful option on sandwiches, and you can find it in the glass case at most sandwich shops in the country, from big-box chains like Subway to small mom-and-pop delis.
But for our money, the ideal way to eat this cheese is in chicken parmesan. This classic Italian dish, featuring breaded chicken topped with tomato sauce and melted cheese, often features mozzarella, but pairs especially well with provolone. (Either way, parmesan cheese of course makes an appearance too!)
To try a sublime provolone-based chicken parm, check out the historic Dante NYC in New York City. Pictured here, the restaurant’s take on the meal features baked wine-marinated chicken and Tuscan kale, and comes topped with sourdough breadcrumbs.
