Nowhere on Rep. John Dingell's timeline in Congress could you find him ordering Chinese food using Google Glass.

Until now.

On Thursday, Dingell wrote on his Facebook page that he's "proud to have Google in Ann Arbor, and I'm thankful they came by today to show me the wonderful technology that is Google glass. It sure made finding a place to eat dinner tonight even easier!"

The 86-year-old Congressman said, "It's quite the machine!"

*Correction - An earlier post named Dingell as the "oldest Congressman." He is not the oldest. He's the longest serving member of Congress. It has been corrected above.
