A Detroit-area man had his 9-year-old daughter drive him to the store because she was his "designated Driver." The daughter reportedly got into the driver's seat at a gas station and drove for several miles before the police pulled the van over, after a 911 tip informed the police of the young driver. When the tyke pulled over, she was reported as saying "What did you stop me for? I was driving good." Luckily, nobody was injured from the incident and no accidents occurred. Except maybe for a man having to admit that his pre-teen daughter could drive better than him in the circumstances.

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.

5 year old Kristoffer Von Hassel figured out that he could log into his dad's Xbox Live account without a password by entering spaces into a second password verification screen after entering the wrong password at the login screen. Kristoffer's father notified Microsoft, and they've now listed Kristoffer as a "security researcher" on their website. He's also received four games, fifty bucks, and a year of Xbox Live.

Alright, I know the video is a little long, Parenting fans, but it's totally worth it. I can easily say this is the coolest WIN I've ever posted on the site. Or maybe it isn't cool, if you aren't a fan of a pre-teen that has more musical capacity in his left elbow than you do in your entire brain. Maybe that's not a WIN for you, but for everybody else... Just watch it!

Chris Pratt and Ryan Reynolds Continue to Show Us They're a Couple Real Life Superheroes

Honestly torn over who we love more at this point...Ryan Reynolds or Chris Pratt. Both of these guys are real life superheroes, and continue to display an incredible ability to balance the demands of being A-list celebrities, with touching the lives of fans who fell upon hard times, and bad luck. Yesterday we ran a post on Ryan Reynolds who shared a heartwarming tribute to his 14 year old fan (and friend) that'd lost his battle with cancer; and today we've got Star Lord. Love these guys!

Queensland, Australia cafe owner, Jessica-Anne Allen, has gotten praise recently for standing up for a woman breast feeding her child in the cafe. She told the Brisbane Times that when a man asked her to confront a customer about covering up while feeding her baby she responded by telling him that they "would never ask a mother to cover up when she is feeding her child" at her breast feeding friendly business.  

Allen asked the man to leave when he mentioned that he did say something to the woman about covering up while feeding her baby. Since then she has reiterated her support of mothers on the cafe's Facebook page and received support from many people, especially mothers, in her community.
