Woman Kills Husband by Putting Eye Drops in Drinking Water: Police say a South Carolina woman has been charged with murder after she allegedly poisoned her husband by putting over-the-counter eye drops in his drinking water. Wow, who knew eye drops were a poison you could use to murder someone?

Apple’s First Self-Driving Car Accident Ruled Human Error: DMV officials say the first car crash experienced by Apple's fleet of self-driving vehicles was apparently caused by a human driver rear-ending Apple’s car - and not Apple's own technology. Fortunately, all repairs were completely covered by Apple’s three year AppleCare warranty, although customers found it extremely difficult pulling the car up to the Apple Store’s Genius Bar for service without knocking over and smashing everything setting on the display tables.
NASA Will Pay $750,000 to Convert CO2 Into Other Molecules: When the US finally launches manned missions to Mars, they’ll need to bring just about everything along with them, so NASA just announced the “CO2 Conversion Challenge,” which asks teams of scientists and inventors to come up with a way to turn CO2 into molecules that can be used to produce all manner of things. OK, I’ll get started on it right away. In the meantime, can I get half the money up front so I can get the research started and the other half when I come up the answer? Hell, I can already turn baked beans into methane, that oughta be worth something. On the other hand, if they’re really that desperate for an answer, why not just ask Matt Damon?
