Drop and give me 20 Twitter updates, soldier

The few, the proud, the out of breath: The British military is loosening its standards for physical fitness, but just for one specialized branch: its "cyber reservists." To address the threat of cyber espionage, the United Kingdom says computer hacking recruits won't have to meet the same levels of fitness that other reservists must.

The U.K.'s elite cybersoldiers also will be outfitted slightly differently. Uniforms, sizes XXL through XXXXL, will feature a camoflage design that will mimic Doritos cheese dust and Domino's pizza stains.


A taco with everything: Three drive-through customers at a Taco Bell in Grand Rapids, Mich., didn't get the food they ordered. Instead, the three found $3,600 in cash in their bag, money that was meant for a bank deposit.

The customers briefly considered keeping the money but realized it would be easily traceable because it was coated with cheese dust from a Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco.


Here's Johnny: Turner Classic Movies is bringing Johnny Carson, the King of Late Night, back to television in the form of a series of his best "Tonight Show" interviews, Mondays at 8 p.m.

TCM already is planning a similar series for current "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno, featuring his best monologues. Both of them.
