Personal Robotic Bartender Aims to get you Shitfaced at your beckon call

Robotics is coming a long way and it is only natural that we create machines to handle the important aspects of daily lives, like making us drinks. Monsieur is your own personal bartender that can be programmed to fit your taste and your schedule. Loaded with many different features this $2,700 bar-tending robot can be customized to create themed drinks for your party, schedule a drink for when you arrive home, and even make you a drink from across the room with its intuitive mobile app. The machine can even be used for bars and restaurants as teams of monsieur robots can be programmed to work together to fulfill orders for multiple customers and tables.

The Monsieur is currently being funded on kickstarter with a goal of $100,000 until November 15th.

No More New Beers (for now)

 

The federal government shutdown is giving some folks one more reason to cry in their beers: An obscure but powerful arm of the Treasury Department has stopped approving new brews.

All new beers that get bottled or canned to be sold across state lines must be approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, known in the industry as the TTB. Federal workers must approve the label, as well as the recipe if it uses non-traditional ingredients, which many seasonal beers contain.

While the TTB as stopped approving new recipes and labels, workers there are still collecting brewery taxes.

Any delays in approvals create a "domino effect," said Carla Villa, a spokeswoman for the New York-based Brooklyn Brewery, which has several new labels pending: "It's this one thing that then affects all these other things. We can't launch beers on time, which means our distributors can't sell it, which means our customers can't buy it."

 VIDEO GAMES 

 

just a quick bit of news, If you were looking forward to WatchDogs to come out at launch of the PS4 and Xbone you will have to wait until 2014

Ubisoft has announced that Watch Dogs and The Crew have been delayed. Both titles were previously set for Ubisoft’s current fiscal year (which ends on March 31, 2014) but will now be released in the following fiscal year instead.

In a conference call this morning, Ubisoft said it expects Watch Dogs to be released in the first quarter of its fiscal year (between April 1 and June 30, 2014) and The Crew to be released in the second quarter (between July 1 and September 30, 2014).

Ubisoft posted the following statement from the Watch Dogs development team on the Ubisoft Blog:

"Our ambition from the start with Watch Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we’ve made the tough decision to delay the release until spring 2014.

We know a lot of you are probably wondering: Why now? We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune each detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience.

Marvel Preps 60-Episode Package Of Four Series & A Mini For VOD & Cable Networks

From Dealine.com:

I hear that Marvel is quietly putting together a package of four drama series and a miniseries — a total of some 60 episodes — that would be taken out to the VOD and cable space, with Netflix, Amazon and WGN America rumored as potential candidates. Feelers had been sent out, and I hear there’s already interest from digital platforms and traditional cable networks in the package, which I hear is in very early stages with very little talent attached. Reps for Marvel refused any comment. The company has been so adamant about keeping its projects under wraps that ABC topper Paul Lee joked at TCA in August that critics who wanted to attend a screening of the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot — the only one in ages to not be distributed in advance — could expect to be asked to submit “a sample of your grandmother’s urine or the Marvel guys won’t let you in.”

 FOOD BEATING 

 

What-a-weapon!

 

It's like a modern-day West Side Story. If West Side Story's rivalry was over a football game. And the gangs were just a bunch of high school students. And the whole thing took place in a Whataburger.

Two rival San Antonio, Tex. high schools, O'Connor High and Brandeis High, converged on the fast food chain after Brandeis pulled off a close 10-12 victory at the schools' annual face-off.

How, exactly, the food fight escalated is unknown, but it lasted about 30 seconds and much of the chaos was caught on video. Afterwards, the Whataburger dining room was so trashed that the restaurant needed to close it.

Though the principals of both O'Connor and Brandeis have apologized to the restaurant and said school officials would watch the video to "determine which students were responsible," Whataburger has said that will be unnecessary.

Moose Tracks

(CNN) -- It was a dark, windy and rainy night when Per Johansson returned from work to his home in Saro just south of Gothenburg, Sweden.

"It was raining really bad. In the wind I heard something screaming with a very dark voice," Johansson told CNN. "At first I wondered if it was the crazy neighbors, but then I heard it again and went and checked. I saw something really big up in a tree in my neighbors' yard and it was a moose. It must have been drunk after eating fermented apples and as it was reaching out for more fruit it must have slipped and fallen into the tree."

Johansson called the local fire and rescue department, which responded with a fire engine and a jeep with a winch.

"We got the alarm at 9.59 p.m. on September 6 that a moose was stuck in a tree," said Anders Gardhagen, spokesman at the Gothenburg Fire and Rescue Services.

"When we arrived we used the winch to bend down the apple tree so the moose could get himself out of the tree. Once free, the moose collapsed on the ground and fell asleep. So we let him sleep it off and went back home" Gardhagen told CNN.

"Moose are attracted by the apple trees, and in the autumn when the apples have fallen off the trees we normally have at least one of these cases of intoxication. These apples, which ferment in their bellies, aren't part of their natural food, so they can get quite angry from this drunkenness," Gardhagen said.

Johansson's son, Gustav, who is about to turn 11, made sure to take lots of pictures of the ordeal.

"He is saving up to buy a PlayStation so he thought he would take pictures that he could sell," Johansson said.

CNN purchased three of Gustav's pictures.

When dawn came the day after it was freed from the tree, the moose had not yet left.

"When I went out for the newspaper it was still laying there on the ground, sleeping. By the time I left for work it was walking around the neighbor's yard on very shaky legs." Johansson said.

"Today the moose came back and walked around the yard," he added. "I think it likes it here."




Missing Elderly Hiker Found After 18 Days

oddnews.org

 

A 72-year-old hiker lost for 18 days in a California forest

has been found after living on squirrels, snakes and lizards.

Gene Penaflor and a hunting friend set off through

Mendocino National Forest on September 24 but became separated.

Mr Penaflor, from San Francisco, is said to have slipped over

and been knocked unconscious.

The search for him was called off after four days as there were

no signs of his possible whereabouts.

He was eventually found on Saturday by a group of hunters

and a search team from the Mendocino County Sheriffs Office.

Jeremy Penaflor, the man's son, said: "He ate squirrels.

"Whatever he could catch. He ate lizards, he ate a couple of frogs,

he ate snakes and survival mode kicked in.

"When you have no food for 18 days, whatever protein you can get, he did."

 

Exploding Toilet Leaves Man Scared To Flush







A man has been seriously injured after a toilet exploded

in his face when he was checking the water pressure in his

New York apartment.

Michel Pierre needed 30 stitches after his face, arms and legs

were struck by shards of porcelain.

The 58-year-old, who was temporarily knocked unconscious

by the blast, is now so scared his loo will burst again that he flushes

it using a rope while hiding behind his bathroom door.

"Obviously there is a serious problem in the building,"

his lawyer Sanford Rubenstein said.

"Clearly toilets are supposed to flush, not explode."

Mr Pierre is seeking compensation from the

management company of the 16-storey block,

which was built in 1964 and contains 275 flats.

The water had been turned off on the day his

toilet and three others exploded, and it is thought a build-up

of air pressure that was pushed through pipes when the supply

was switched back on may be to blame.

Theresa Racht, a lawyer representing the building's board, said:

"This is a horrific incident. Everybody feels terrible that

such a thing could have happened.

"It certainly makes me think twice about flushing the toilet

when the water's been turned off."

She added: "This could very well be what we call a true accident."
