Boy’s Pink Toenails in J. Crew Ad Cause Debate [VIDEO]

If it weren't for the neon pink toenail polish on a little boy's toes, nobody would have taken much notice to the recent J. Crew advertisement that depicts head creative director Jenna Lyon and her son hanging out on a lazy Saturday.

The feminine-hued polish paired with the caption, "Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink," has stirred up a controversial frenzy that has some people wondering if the photo is an endorsement of transgendered, gender-neutral or gay children.

Inmates’ Coloring Books Painted With Drugs [VIDEO]

Three inmates at the Cape May County Correctional Center in New Jersey wanted their drugs so badly, they used a children's coloring book to sneak them into their prison cells. We hate to give criminals so much credit, but the whole process was undeniably ingenious.

With the help of two civilians, the inmates painted numerous coloring books with what looked to be water color, but was actually a liquid version of a drug called Suboxone. They would have gotten away with it, but in February officers at the correction center were tipped off and began testing the books for drug substances.

12-Year-Old Is Smarter Than Albert Einstein [VIDEO]

Sure, he discovered the theory of general relativity, but compared to 12-year-old Jacob Barnett, Albert Einstein is starting to look like a slacker.

According to BlipPitt, Barnett has already begun working on an expanded form of Einstein's revolutionary theory, which has since been validated by professors at Princeton University.

Barnett, who was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, has been a whiz for quite some time; at three years old, he could "recite the alphabet, forward and then backward" and "the first 70 digits of the mathematical constant known as pi (he’s up over 200 now)," according to the article. His IQ is currently 170 -- higher than Einstein's. Not bad for a 12-year-old, huh?
