Each man would get 60 seconds to make his case, and the girls had the chance to, essentially, swipe right or left.
If two women chose the same guy, he got to pick between them—turning the tables and giving us the drama we craved oh, so much.
Travelers at the airport are often anxious about their luggage, and those moments waiting for bags to show up on a turnstile can seem like forever after a long in-flight journey. The video shows the bag leaving the check-in desk, where it is assigned a tag with barcode that indicates where it needs to go.

What a way to kick off a new decade: A dating reality show that combines the frenetic shallowness of speed dating with the presentation of industrial grade meat.
Welcome to ABC's "Conveyor Belt of Love," which rolled out Monday night with the pacing of, well, a conveyor belt.
If a woman likes what she sees (indicated by a raised paddle reading "interested" or "not interested"), the select hunk of beef -- er, aspiring date -- heads to a platform to wait and see if he is replaced or not. There truly is something to love about a show whose credits include a "conveyor belt operator," features one woman who tells her date "I want you to worship me" and lets a pneumatic bleached blonde choose a very unconventional guy.
But for viewers who endure the slow, dull plod, there are slight rewards: the matched pairs have a more than 50% success rate, which portends well for a second date.

Whether "Love" also has a future, well, that remains to be seen.
