Most torpedoes in WW2 were propelled by either steam, electrical or burner cycle engined (Basically a Diesel engine) with some experiments on hydrogen peroxide. Alone among all, the Japanese used compressed oxygen, particularly the Type 93 Long Lance. The compressed oxygen gave them greater range and speed than their foreign counterparts, and were also wakeless.

The downside was the compressed oxygen itself, as elemental oxygen is hideously reactive, meaning any combustion would set them off. To make things worse the torpedoes were placed next to the engine compartments. To put an example of how dangerous was this: Chokai has the indignity of being the only cruiser ever to be lost at the hands of an aircraft carrier's guns, a 5'' anti aircraft gun detonating their torpedo rack with a single shell.

In 2002, PepsiCola offered the Estonian government $25,000,000 for renaming the country's largest lake from Peipsi ("Pie-psee") to Pepsi. It would also mean a heavy blow against the Coca-Cola Plaza in the capital Tallinn, opened just a year before. The government declined.

On Father's Day 1991, an unidentified man broke into the United Bank skyscraper in Denver, Colorado. Impersonating as a bank officer, the man would steal $20,000 from the vault and completely remove any traces of him from stealing CCTV camera tapes to wiping down fingerprints to murdering all the guards and removing the shell casings. Because of a lack of evidence, the crook was never found and the crime currently remains a cold case.
