Aldi Adds Grocery Delivery
Aldi, the supermarket chain from Germany, has already achieved status as a cult-favorite grocery store in the U.S., but they’re finding more ways to make us love them. The company has just announced that it’s going to start offering delivery at most of its 1,800 stores across the country through Instacart.
The grocery store is now in 35 states and people love their house-brand snacks, inexpensive award-winning wines, and fun housewares. But getting groceries delivered right to your door from Aldi, that’s a game-changer. According to a statement, Instacart shopping and delivery service starts rolling out today and will reach about 80% of all Aldi stores by the end of the year, but they plan to have most areas up and running by Thanksgiving. How great would it be to avoid the Turkey Day shopping rush in the store?
Aldi had a successful test run with delivery in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Chicago and now plans to expand to 75 major markets like San Diego, New York City, and Miami. The network of shoppers and drivers may be able to get groceries to customers in as little as an hour, and you can also pre-shop online with delivery scheduled up to a week later. The only drag is they don’t deliver booze, so you’ll still have to pick up your own wine.
And to celebrate the collaboration, first-time Instacart users can get $10 off their first three Aldi orders of $35 or more by using the code”ALDILOVE” at checkout.

Farts Can Leak Through Your Mouth If You Hold Them in, Professor Finds
Everyone farts. It's only natural. But, not everyone lets the air puff freely from his or her bottom all the time and that can be problematic.
New research shows clenching your cheeks together won't get rid of the stinky issue. In fact, it may only leave the airy odor to leak out elsewhere.
Nutrition and dietetics professor, from the University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Clare Collins wrote an essay for The Conversation explaining a new phenomenon about gas.
Holding in a flatulent doesn't make it go away, the self-proclaimed "Fart-Expert" explained. Apparently, the gas can become reabsorbed in the bloodstream, which with nowhere else to go, will end up escaping out of your mouth.
Professor Collins gave this mortifying warning:
Trying to hold it in leads to a build up of pressure and major discomfort. A build up of intestinal gas can trigger abdominal distension, with some gas reabsorbed into the circulation and exhaled in your breath. Holding on too long means the build up of intestinal gas will eventually escape via an uncontrollable fart.
The research is not clear on whether the rise in pressure in your rectum increases your chance of developing a condition called diverticulitis, where small pouches develop in the gut lining and become inflamed – or whether it doesn’t matter at all.
The professor said there is something you can do though to remedy the situation. Move to a more acceptable location and let it rip.
Woman Details Epic Revenge On Cheating Husband
An Australian woman named Mel thought that she and her husband Marty had the “perfect relationship”... that is, until she discovered that he was living with another woman during his frequent business trips to Canada. The story goes that he apparently left his laptop open one night, where she spotted a message from the woman telling him to “hurry home.” That’s when she started plotting her revenge.
Mel decided that since things seemed to be going well with this Chantal from Canada, Marty might as well stay there. So, she sold their shared house while he was away again for a cheap enough price to see it bought quickly, split up the funds, and set off on a luxury cruise with her girlfriends. She didn’t bother telling her soon-to-be ex that she had sold the house, so when he came home shortly after the sale was finalized he didn’t actually have a home to come back to.
Mel hopes that her story will show women that they “always have power, even if a man has ground them down and made them feel like rubbish.” It looks like it worked out well for both parties, since Marty has apparently moved on with the Canadian mistress. And when it comes to his and Mel's marriage… he reportedly hasn’t contacted her about a divorce yet, but she says “bring it on.”

Arby’s Wants to Give Free Tattoos to Dedicated ‘Sandwich Fans’
Arby’s is giving its fans free sandwiches for life – but not the edible kind.
The home of “the meats” has announced it will be giving out free tattoos to the most dedicated fans so they will have a “free sandwich for life.”
“There’s simply no other brand more passionate and dedicated to sandwiches than Arby’s – and there are many sandwich fans out there who share this same level of passion,” Arby’s said in a statement.
“Nothing, however, shows more dedication and commitment to something than inking it on your body. That’s why Arby’s is going to help sandwich fans showcase their commitment by giving them a free sandwich for life – in the form of a tattoo,” the food chain continued, and added that it will be paying for the tattoos.
However, if getting a tattoo of a sandwich on your body was not enough of a catch, there is another one – to take advantage of this “permanent” deal, you have to travel to Port City Tattoo in Long Beach, Calif., this Saturday, Sept. 22. Tattoo artist Miguel “Uzi” Montgomery has teamed up with Arby’s and will be doing all of the flash sandwich tattoos.
If you’re a die-hard Arby’s fan and can’t make it to California, the brand has another option. People can download the flash artwork online and take the sheet to a local tattoo artist — though Arby’s won’t be footing the bill.
