  • Two friends successfully spend the night at IKEA

    Best friends Florian and Bram like to go on memorable adventures. In this video, posted to their YouTube channel, the pair try and stay an entire night in Swedish home-ware store, IKEA. The friends stay until the store closes, and then hide in a closet to wait for the staff to leave. They manage to go undetected, and roam the store throughout the night. They test out the beds, mess about in the toilets and rate the shop out of ten for its “hospitality.” The staff begin to arrive in the early hours of the morning, and the pair have to hide out in a closet until 9am, when they can sneak back in among the customers and make their escape. According to the uploaders, IKEA were not in on the stunt, but were good sports about it and found it funny. A Belgian news report about their night-time adventures included a statement from the flat-pack giant saying they wouldn’t prosecute the duo as they had technically done nothing wrong.

    By Alwyn Scott SEATTLE (Reuters) - ANA Holdings Inc , Japan's largest airline, said on Wednesday it will replace all 100 Rolls-Royce engines on its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners following three engine failures this year caused by corrosion and cracking of turbine blades.
