Confetti confidential Spectators at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City got a surprise last November when they discovered that the confetti raining down on them included confidential information. CNN reported:

Saul Finkelstein, a Manhattan attorney, was watching the renowned parade with his 18-year-old son Ethan, as they do every year, when they noticed a piece of shredded paper that appeared to have a Social Security number on it.

"There were shredded papers all over the place, like snowball size, all over the ground," Finkelstein said. "There were whole sentences, license plate numbers and police reports."
