This calls for a toast
One can only imagine what a sip of the most expensive bottle of single malt scotch whiskey would taste like, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. All you need is a couple of million dollars to find out. The auctioneers at Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh, Scotland say they expect that the Macallan Distillery’s record-breaking, nearly six-foot tall, 82.16 gallon bottle of its 32-year-old Intrepid brand single-malt scotch might fetch nearly $2 million at auction.

What a kid
It took Elliott Tanner of St. Louis Park, MN only 13 years to graduate from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor’s degree. That’s how old he is, explains the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. And the teenage prodigy, who majored in physics and math, says he plans to get his doctorate. Elliott was reading when he was two years old and he graduated from the Normandale Community College with an associate of science degree when he was eleven. But tanner is not resting on his laurels, his goal is to earn his doctorate degree and return to his alma mater as a young – a very young – professor of physics.

The oldest person on the planet
The world’s oldest person ever was a French woman who lived to be 122 and half years old and died in 1875, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. And now, another French woman, a nun by the name of Sister Andre, born Lucile Randon in 1904, has been declared the oldest person in the world today by the officials who keep track of the Guinness World Records. Having lived through two world wars, WW I and WW II, and two pandemics, small pox and covid, she turned 119 years old on February 11.
