1. Google Car Tracks Route Directly Into Side Of Bus, And Then Into Another Bus

A brightly-multi-colored, company-logo-emblazoned, seven-foot-camera-tower-having Google car smashed into the side of a bus while mapping the streets of Bogor, Indonesia last week. After pulling away from the bus, the driver — apparently hoping no one would be able to identify his car — attempted to flee the scene and immediately rammed into a second bus.

 

2. Larry Summer Withdraws From Consideration For Fed Chair Job He Wasn't Ever Going To Get Ever

Lawrence H. Summers — the unpopular former Secretary of the Treasury who was not ever going to be the next chairman of the Federal Reserve — withdrew his name from consideration to be appointed chairman of the Federal Reserve, citing the obvious fact that even the President, who wanted him to be chairman of the Federal Reserve even though that was never ever going to happen, can't rally enough congressional support to make him chairman of the Federal Reserve.

3. Internet Freaks Out After Smokin' Hot Indian-American Woman Is Crowned Miss America Over A Smokin' Hot White-American Woman

Miss New York Nina Davuluri became the first woman of Indian descent ever to be crowned Miss America.

The owner of the bag turned out to be an employee of Best Buy who clearly knows a lot more about hard drives and LCD TVs than about banks and not doing stupid shit with your money.

Seattle police went undercover as San Francisco 49ers fans during yesterday's game at CenturyLink Field, in the hopes that some drunk asshole Seahawks fans would mess with them.
