There's a movie theater in London that has "Ninjas" that hush loud moviegoers!

Have you ever gone to a theater and there's a really loud person and no one dares to speak up? This theater has got your back. The Prince Charles Cinema in London recruits volunteers to act as ninjas who keep order in the theater, in exchange for free movie tickets. 

When they spot a moviegoer talking, texting or doing something rude, they come in and they hush him. It seems to be working, a person on the receiving end of a ninja hush said he was shocked at first, but he had a laugh over it and realized he should stop talking.

New York once had a three-day riot over straw hats

Around the turn of the century, there was an unwritten, but arbitrary rule that said you couldn't wear straw hats in New York City past September 15th. Newspapers would warn you about the upcoming date, and if you dared wear a hat past the date, you'd probably get your hat snatched and stomped in front of you.

In 1922, a few youth decided to start this stomping tradition early, on the 13th. They targeted some dock workers that actually fought back instead of letting their hats be stomped. A fight broke out and they even stopped traffic on the Manhattan Bridge before police broke it off.

Despite this, the brawls continued and got worse. Gangs of teens would walk around with large sticks - sometimes even with a nail on the top - looking for people with hats to beat them up. Many people were hospitalized, there were mobs as large as 1000 people who were just looking to stomp on hats!
