Andrew Slavonic just celebrated his 101st birthday with friends and family. And like many 100-year-olds, he’s often asked about the secret to long life. In his case, the answer is simple – Coors Light, daily. Andrew, who happens to be a World War II veteran, has a routine that includes kicking back with a cold one each and every day at 4 p.m. (The Daily Meal)

And finally,

The Ohio Pork Council has installed a bacon vending machine at Ohio State University. A strip of bacon costs $1. Proceeds from the machine are going to the school’s meat science program.(“Meat Science?” Do they have the lab portion of the class at Burger King?)

Super model mice?

Super model mice?

NBC claims a Boston firefighter recently dressed as Buddy the Elf before challenging random people on the street to pillow fights. Brandon Edwards says he and fellow firefighters are trying to spread cheer during the holiday season. Boston residents love the fights. (It’s Boston, so you know some of those pillow cases will be filled with rocks.)

The Daily Mail claims scientists are on the verge of creating a pill to prevent weight gain. The drug would allow users to eat as much as they want without becoming obese. Researchers have already completed successful testing of the pill on mice. (Oh, great, perpetually hungry mice coming our way.)

And finally,

While most people have been keeping an eye on the development of self-driving cars — companies have also been developing self-driving boats. Not surprisingly, these companies have been able to create “robot boats” — that are able to ship products across the ocean without a human captain at the wheel. And what are they calling these RO-bot boats? Row boats! )I totally didn’t make that up.) (Vice)

 

The model who’s also a rocket scientist?!

The model who’s also a rocket scientist?!

The Daily Mail claims 25-year-old rocket scientist Jack Heslewood recently quit his job to become a full-time male model. Jack has an IQ of 181, but decided that modeling is more lucrative. He said, “In modeling, you get to meet lots of diverse people and make new friends. It’s a great distraction from science, which is very demanding mentally. With modeling, you need a whole different type of skill set, which I respect. It’s not easy.”

Because the economy has been rolling along pretty well lately, the U.S. Army has been having trouble finding recruits. In order to attract the best and brightest — and to boost enrollment — the Army is now recruiting young gamers, people who play video games. The reason that gaming actually helps young people prepare for life in the military. They get a sense of military strategy when they’re playing war games — and they are at an advantage with their hand-eye coordination. (Kotaku)

And finally,

A French design company has created a pair of smart jeans that act as a wearable GPS. Spinali Design jeans have sensors on each side of them that vibrate when you need to turn left or right. The jean’s sensors are connected to a smartphone app. The jeans should last for years if washed carefully and properly. We also hear of many people making wrong turns purposely, because they enjoy the sensation.

LESS Cowbell?!

LESS Cowbell?!

A family in Germany has been hit with a fever, and the only cure is…less cowbell! A couple moved into a farmhouse right next door to a spread that was recently rented by a cattle rancher, and they are being driven nuts by the non-stop ringing from the bovines roaming the pastures down the road. The family thinks instead of cowbells, each cow should be fitted with a GPS device to keep track of them. (BBC)
