If you live in Florida and you own a pooch then this is for you or if you love strange Florida news (who doesn’t?). Pet owners at a Florida condominium complex received a interesting request from their landlords.
The management of the condominium wants every dog’s DNA. It seems some pet owners have allowed pets to poop on the property and haven’t cleaned it up. This new rule includes cats. Poop has even been found in elevators! By having the DNA of the pets they will catch whoever is letting pets poop freely all over the place.
Some residents are concerned about this new policy. They spoke with the Newsherald.com but said they are afraid to give their identities because they don’t want to get into trouble with the management. Here’s what one concerned resident told the Newsherald.com: “The majority of the board members do not live here. They visit randomly, as this is a second home for them,” one resident said. “As owners, they can vote and make rules, but this DNA tracking of the pets at the pet owner’s expense seems and feels over the top.”
Others aren’t upset about this new policy. They say this is for the benefit of the residents to have a clean property.
It has yet to be seen if all the resident will comply with this policy.

Intern at ApartmentList.com
It’s basically a universal truth that the only thing better than Chipotle is…more Chipotle. I’m no religious scholar, but I’m pretty sure heaven is just one big Chipotle restaurant where the guac and chips are ALWAYS free and hell is just some Taco Bell. So when one of my co-workers at Apartment List brought up the question of how to hack Chipotle to get the most burrito for your buck, I was intrigued. If ever there was a noble intern task, this was obviously it.
Through a lot of burrito research and even more company write-offs and office burrito donations, I’ve discovered these 6 tips that can increase the size of your burrito by 86% without spending any more money.
You’re welcome, world. Please send the Nobel Prize to my mom’s house.
So I took my geeky love of data and my black hole of a belly to Chipotle for several days and ordered 5 burritos each day (35 burritos total), then returned to the Apartment List office to meticulously separate out and weigh the ingredients. Finally, I combined all the best methods to confirm the total burrito size increase. Additional methodology footnotes are below, but for now – on to the meat of the experiment (pun intended).
Tip 1: Get a burrito bowl with a tortilla on the side
At its onset, Chipotle introduced the innovative burrito bowl that combined its authentic Mexican cuisine with the ease of knife-and-fork dining. Burrito legend has it that the bowl’s lack of tortilla constraints influences servers to give burrito bowl customers huge portions in general.
In my experiments, I found that this method alone gets 15% more ingredients across the board, without changing anything else about the order. Still craving that full burrito experience? No problem – you can easily ask for a tortilla on the side. Which leads to our next tip…
Tip 2: Double wrapping (asking for two tortillas)
This method of calling in tortilla reinforcements was initially introduced by Chipotle to save burritos that busted open their first tortilla, but Chipotle sometimes lets you ask for a double wrap for free, which adds another 4.25 ounce tortilla to your burrito (ask for the tortillas at the end, when the staff just wants you to go away).
Congratulations, your burrito just became 25% bigger. Ordering tortillas on the side and wrapping it yourself may be a daunting task for some, but if you value the time it takes you to wrap the burrito at $0 per hour (hey, burritos are worth your time), then you should add this method to your burrito maximization arsenal.
Tip 3: Order both kinds of rice
The next time your server asks if you want white or brown rice, request both types – you’ll get almost 93% more rice, at no extra cost. This carbo-loading method increases the overall weight of the burrito by 23%. As an ancient American proverb puts it: more burrito, more food, more happiness.
Tip 4: Order both types of beans
Just like rice, there are two different types of beans we can choose from: black and pinto. If you really want to maximize burrito weight, asking for both kinds gets you 92% more beans (another note: we aren’t responsible for the gas you’ll be having afterwards). With this method, you get a 16% burrito weight increase.
Tip 5: Half/half meats
In theory, asking for half chicken, half steak should yield one full serving, but our tests showed that you actually get 54% more meat – basically 3/4 scoop of each. This increase in meat grows the burrito’s weight by around 9%.
You must note, however, that you’ll be charged for the more expensive of the meats, but we’ve put the many finance and accounting degrees here at Apartment List to good use and determined that it’s still financially worth it.
Tip 6: Ask for fajita veggies and corn salsa
Hidden away and rarely mentioned by servers, the fajita vegetable mix and corn salsa are free to add, and taste good to boot.
These underappreciated ingredients will cure any feeling you might have that your burrito might be lacking in terms of a balanced Food Pyramid. Grilled veggies and corn not only add more color and flavor to your burrito, but they also add around 2.55 ounces, increasing the weight by about 15% (vs. the standard burrito).
Not only do you have more burrito, but you can also tell your friends and family that your burrito is totally 100% healthy.
Add it all together and you get….
There you have it. By using each of the six tricks I suggest, you may end up with a little less cheese and salsa (that comes at the end, when your bowl will already be pretty full), but you get a lot more rice, beans, and meat. My final burrito weighed 86% more than the control. Sounds like it’s time to go to Chipotle!

Can you imagine being separated from society for 44 years only to have to abruptly face the realities of the modern age- all at once?
That is what Ottis Johnson has had to deal with in New York this year.
Johnson started serving prison time when he was 25 for the attempted murder of a police officer. Now at 69, Johnson is out of jail and is having to navigate a remarkably changed America without the aid of family or friends, since he doesn’t have any.
Johnson’s story was told in a remarkable profile by Al Jazeera and a video focused on the man’s reintegration into society has started to go viral.
