With the advent of automobiles and railways, walking long distances has almost ceased. (Neither can the modern man afford leisurely pace in today's time-driven world.) A look at the emerging scenario. We hear of "washing machines for humans", which wash a person's body with soapy water and also blow him dry! Then, there is a "detergent-free" washing machine with an "automatic oxygen generator" built into it, while an Italian fashion house has developed a shirt that irons itself, imparted with sharp memory.
All along, men were enjoying sips of liquor poured in suitable jars. Now, a South Korean brewer has come out with "chewable liquor". (Whether this will find favour with showy and snobbish patrons given "to drinking in society", need not detain us here.)
