This old hog sold for a record-breaking price.

A used Harley-Davidson motorcycle sold for nearly a million dollars recently. No, inflation is not what caused the extravagant price tag, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. This bike of dreams sold at auction for a record-breaking $935,000 because it was in excellent condition considering that it was 115 years old. Greg Arnold, who heads up the motorcycle division of the Mecum Auction house in Las Vegas, said this “hog” had “many of its original parts, which makes it that much more rare.” Strap Tank Harleys like this one got the moniker due to the nickel-plated steel bands that suspend the fuel and oil tanks and are rare, indeed.




Love conquers all, as the saying goes!

Most of us can hold our breath underwater for a max of two minutes or so, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. However, Beth Neale and her fiancé, Miles Cloutier, managed to stay under for four-minutes and six-seconds, the time it took them to steal a prolonged kiss while immersed in a hotel pool in the romantic Maldives Islands. They did it because they are in love, obviously, and because they were intent on breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest underwater kiss.




What’s in the time capsule?

They were taking down a building on the campus of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign recently when they found a 116-year-old time capsule in the building’s cornerstone, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. It caused quite a stir as there was no record of the capsule. There’s plenty of time to think about what might be in the capsule; it won’t be opened until next fall when the university celebrates its 150th anniversary.
