2. A candidate named Rakeshkumar Christian, who ran unsuccessfully for Governor in California, attributed homosexuality to HBO, alcohol, and bad parenting.
3. A Mumbai restaurant used a drone to deliver a pizza to a customer in a high-rise building 1.5 km away.
4. The two co-champions of the 2014 National Spelling Bee, Sriram Hathwar and Ansun Sujoe, each misspelled one word.
5. Giving an example to help Sriram Hathwar spell a word, a National Spelling Bee judge inadvertently referenced the lyrics of an explicit song called “Milkshake.”
