Eco-friendly open-air urinals

God Bless America

A real nailbiter

Shridhar Chillal of Pune, India visited New York City recently and treated himself to a manicure at, of all places, the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Times Square. And, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], he was long overdue. The last time Chillal, who is 82 years old, had his nails cut was in 1952. His clippings, including a thumbnail that measures 6 ½ feet long, are on display at the museum. According to the publishers of the Guinness Book of World Records, he has the longest fingernails ever recorded on a single hand.

When you gotta go, you gotta go

Not all Parisians are happy about the so-called eco-friendly open-air urinals the City of Lights is installing at various locations in the city, the banks of the Seine. You can’t miss them, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. They are painted bright red and are topped with a white sign complete with a red arrow pointing downward and a cartoon character showing passersby how to use the facility.

A creative tinkerer

Talk about a comfortable, if not awkward, commute. Daniel Winter is showing off the latest addition to what he calls his collection of “dumb motorized stuff”—a motorized couch. Among other bright ideas creative tinkerer Winter has had in the past, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], is a skateboard with a motor and a motorized garbage can. Go figure!
