Joggle me this
A “joggler” in Boston just might break the Guinness World Record for jogging and juggling for a mile at the same time. He recently was able to run the event three-fifths of a second faster than the current record holder, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Three-time joggling record holder Kurt Swinson currently holds the record. He won the record for the first time in in 1984, did it again in 1985 and then broke it once more 32 years ago in 1986 with a time of 4 minutes, 43.8 seconds. Zach Prescott, a junior at Boston University, recently joggled a mile in 4 minutes, 43.2 seconds and it was all caught on tape for consideration by the folks at Guinness.
Rube Goldberg is alive and well and living in the hearts and minds of many a would-be inventor. Take Canadian Lego aficionado Iouri Petoukhov who built a contraption with his Lego bricks that serves up bacon and eggs, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Meanwhile, it took an inventor in Iowa two months to complete his Rube Goldberg tape dispenser that uses Ping-Pong balls to trigger a series of seemingly impossible chain reactions that minutes later dispenses Scotch tape.
They’d rather smell the roses
The 982 residents of Parrish, Alabama have had a few choice words for the eight million or more residents of New York City, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. It seems that a trainload of big city human waste bound for the Big Sky landfill, 20 miles east of Parrish, came to a screeching, smelly halt in the middle of town more than two months ago. And, it’s been emitting a very unpleasant odor ever since. Town folk have had to curtail outdoor activities and are hoping that what they call the “poop train” will continue its journey soon—preferably before the warm weather sets in.
