Why is the first Brazilian fast food chain called Bob's? The American-Brazilian tennis champion Robert Falkenburg, who won the Wimbledon tournament in 1948, introduced the fast-food concept to Brazil in 1952, after turning down a $100,000-a-year professional tennis contract. The first store on Rio's famous Copacabana beach, sold hot dogs, hamburgers, milkshakes, and ice-cream sundaes, a novelty at the time as Brazil would not allow the import of American soft-serve ice cream machines. Falkenburg sold the chain in 1972, and, aged 93, is still alive and retired in California.

Lua was invented in 1993 at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro by Roberto Ierusalimschy, Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo, and Waldemar Celes. Trade barriers made it difficult to import software from abroad, so members of the Computer Graphics Technology Group at the university had to make tools from scratch. Lua is the Portugese word for moon, named as it borrowed syntax from an earlier language SOL (Simple Object Language), Sol being the Portugese word for sun!
