A mother in India recently placed a matrimonial ad in the paper for her adult, gay son. It might seem like it would only be a little embarassing for 36 year old activist Harish Iyer to have his mom get involved in his lovelife but it's actually groundbreaking. It is thought to be the first same-sex dating ad placed in an Indian newspaper. In fact many papers refused to publish it.

Iyer told the Times of India that they've gotten a few responses so far but he plans on taking his time to decide on the right man.

Allegedly the girl hatched a revenge plot to murder her mother after her iPhone was taken away. That sentence is a real event and not something we pulled from a psychology case study on sociopathy.

Boulder County police arrested the tween after her mother reported her for the second poisoning incident. The first, when the child poured bleach into her mother's smoothie, which mom was able to detect by smell (and here we thought it was the pricepoint of a Vitamix that would kill you ZING).

Then she tried the same stunt with a carafe of water that her mother kept in her bedroom. This is probably the ballsiest move in the entire story, because seriously who tries the same matricidal nonsense twice? That's just poor form, Olivia (in the story I am assuming the child's name is Olivia because they're all named Olivia, run with me here).

To conclude, another case of pre-teen case of severe empathy lack solved by the power of a mom who won't take any nonsnse... and maybe a little help from Mr. Yuck.

10 year-old Alyssa De Le Sala received an outpouring of support when she decided to start a lemonade stand to help her family rebuild their home. The family's house was destroyed by a fire two years ago and the contractors they paid to rebuild it never finished the work. She wanted to do something nice for her parents to help finish the home so she started a lemonade stand on her own to raise money.
