What do you tip an android
Ask a Hungarian and he or she is likely to tell you that Hungary’s capital, Budapest, is famous for its spas. But, the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] reports that the “Queen of the Danube,” is fast gaining a reputation for its edgy grasp of 21st Century technology. For example, the city is home to one of the world’s very first diners with a focus on technology instead of recipes. The Enjoy Budapest Café is where robots serve and entertain you. Automatonic waiters and waitresses take food and drink orders and deliver your orders to your tables. Robotic entertainers, meanwhile, entertain customers with jokes and dancing.
Who’s the pigeon
The slang term, pigeon, is defined as a person who is easily swindled. But, in this case some may see it as the pigeon having the upper hand. According to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] a bidder in China purchased a Belgian racing pigeon for $1.4 million at an online auction site. Armando, the pigeon, was described on the PIPA auction Web site as “the best long distance pigeon of all time in Belgium, and perhaps even worldwide.” But, only time will tell if the bird is worth the price. Until now, the highest price ever paid for a racing pigeon was $450,000, nearly one million dollars less than Armando’s price tag.
Kiss me quick
Why do sharks have such a bad reputation? After all, thesaurus.com offers these synonyms for shark: discerning, smooth and profound. And, an incident off the coast of South Africa recently shows that some sharks may have a soft spot, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. It was all caught on video when a rather large blue shark approached marine scientist and professional diver, Kevin Schmidt, and gave him a great big kiss on the forehead.
