A dog in Milan regularly catches the No. 54 bus by himself, to visit his favorite spot in the city. He will only get on if it’s the driver that he likes, and once he has reached his destination (a park) he leaps off and wanders around for a few hours before catching the same bus home again.

When a then-unknown Prince opened up for the Rolling Stones on the first of two nights in LA in 1981, the crowd threw beer cans at him and booed him off the stage within the first 20 minutes of his set. He came on the stage wearing nothing but bikini briefs and a trench coat.

love ya!

The whole reason we focus on presidents’ first 100 days in office so much is because of how much FDR accomplished during his.
