No more teachers’ dirty looks?

You’re a grown up now. In fact, you are a senior citizen with a good job. But, in some parts of the world, it doesn’t mean you won’t have to get up early to go to school, says the Association of Mature American Citizens.

In fact, it may soon be “mandatory” that you go back to school if you are an adult Dane, Icelander, Finn, Swede or Norwegian. The Nordic Council of Ministers is considering a proposal that would require “adult and continuing training for everybody in the labor markets”

A pleasant aroma

Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the delightful aroma of a senior citizen! The Association of Mature American Citizens reports that a study conducted by Dr. Johan Lundstrom at Philadelphia’s Monell Chemical Senses Center, found that the older you are the better you smell.

In fact, the 75 to 90 year old participants in the study were judged have more pleasant underarm odor than young and middle-aged adults.

Let ’em eat plastic

The Association of Mature American Citizens says scientists may have found a way to deal with one of the most pervasive environmental problems of the modern age by feeding the plastic bags that clog landfills all over the world to worms.

The Web site, Futurism, reported recently that an amateur beekeeper in Spain, who also happens to be a scientist, stowed the larvae of some “pesky” wax moths into a plastic bag to prevent them from eating up her beeswax, which is also their favorite meal. The caterpillars quickly ate through the bags. It turns out they have a taste not only for beeswax, but also for plastic.
