Colin Wood of Essex, England, rented a decommissioned nuclear bunker with 10-ft.-thick concrete walls for 2 weeks in order to avoid the stress of Christmas!

In Reno, Nev., there was a "Fruitcake Survival Test" in which people tried to destroy fruitcakes by driving over them, dropping them from buildings and kicking them like footballs!

Paolo Rais of Switzerland invented an 18-seat rectangular table with electric motor driven chairs that move at a rate of 3.5 inches per minute so diners can socialize without getting up!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) What did Colin do in order to avoid the stress of Christmas?

(2) What did the people do in the "Fruitcake Survival Test?"

(3) What kind of table did Paolo invent?
