History Fact

Germany uncover 2,000 tons of unexploded bombs every year.

Over the course of WWII, the Allied armies dropped roughly 2.7 million tons of bombs over Nazi-occupied Europe. Half of that which landed on Germany.

Before any construction work can begin in Germany, the ground must undergo extensive surveys to look for unexploded ordinance.

Sometimes bombs are discovered naturally. One example was from 2011:

45,000 people were evacuated from their homes when a drought revealed a 4,000-pound “blockbuster” bomb lying on the bed of the River Rhine in the middle of Koblenz.

San Francisco's American Grilled Cheese Kitchen has really upped the game with its over-the-top take: mac and cheese stuffed between two thick slices of garlic-buttered sourdough bread (sourdough is a San Francisco specialty).

The result is ridiculously rich and creamy. In other words, it’s perfect.

They soon patched over their differences, enough to become a real-life couple for some time.
