Although a few companies like AT&T and Tesla accept bitcoin, Chipotle is doing the opposite on April 1st – it'll be giving away $100,000 worth of the cryptocurrency. It'll be just for the one day, and no, it's not an April fools joke. But of course it is a publicity stunt – to celebrate National Burrito Day.
To win, Chipotle (CMG) fans can visit the website BurritosOrBitcoin.com launching Thursday to try to guess a valid six-digit code. Each player gets 10 tries during the contest, which runs from noon to 9 pm ET. Correct guesses could win up to $25,000 in bitcoin … or a free burrito, as Chipotle is also giving away $100,000 in food.
In total, 53 people could actually win the bitcoin: 50 fans will win $500 in the cryptocurrency, and 3 will win $25,000. And 10,000 fans will win one burrito.

A dull knife is actually more dangerous than a sharp one. Since a dull blade requires more pressure to cut, there's a far greater chance that heavy pressure can cause a blade to slip and result in an ugly kitchen injury.

Power and electricity are so foundational to modern life that it's jarring to even consider what happens if the delivery of current to the homes and businesses of millions isn't reliable or, even more shockingly, gone altogether.
