Vatican Fried Chicken

During a Papal audience, a business man approached the Pope and made this offer: Change the last line of the Lord's prayer from "Give us this day our daily bread" to "Give us this day our daily chicken," and Kentucky Fried Chicken will donate \$10,000,000 to Catholic charities. The Pope declined.
Two weeks later, the man approached the Pope again - this time with a \$50,000,000 offer. Again, the Pope declined. A month later, the man upped the price to \$100,000,000, and this time the Pope accepted.
At a meeting of the Cardinals, the Pope announced his decision in the good news/bad news format. "The good news is: We have \$100,000,000 for charities. The bad news: We lost the Wonder Bread account."

Asphalt pavement

In 1870, Professor Edward J. de Smedt, was granted a U.S. patent for laying sheet asphalt pavement (U.S. Nos. 103,581 and -2). It was known as French asphalt pavement (where it was first laid in Paris in 1854). Mixing sand with natural asphalt is too stiff to work at suitable temperatures in the needed portions of about seven parts sand. Instead, he made a mix in ratio about 5 to 1, fluxed with certain petroleum oils and mineral particles, which was was easier to work with. On a graded road surface, a half-inch layer of hot sand is laid, topped with a one-inch layer of the hot asphalt and sand mix, and compacted with a hot roller. The process is repeated to build up a thicker road covering. On 29 Jul 1870, an experimental stretch of this type of asphalt pavement was laid in front of the City Hall, William Street, Newark, N.J.«[Image: Road crew laying asphalt for a new road in Florida, 1917.]
