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?

Seven years after the accident, during which Coover ruined a $3,000 machine, the first version of Super Glue (called Eastman 910) was made available.

The duo ran into a snag this year, however, when a neighbor complained to the local authorities about the commotion caused by this Thin Mint commerce.

Citing this complaint and a code against selling products from the home, the city of Hazelwood demanded the girls take down their stand.

The package sat until March 18, when someone at the office decided to X-ray it to see what was inside. The contents? A bomb that had been there all along, according to ABC News.

Ten-Year-Old Takes Mom’s SUV on a Joy Ride [VIDEO]

Ten-year old Zilan Fitch was angry that he had been punished. But instead of trashing his room or refusing to come down for dinner, Zilan retaliated by stealing his mom's SUV and driving it straight into rush hour traffic.

Christi Sanders, the boy's mother, spotted Zilan backing out of the driveway and followed him. She reports Zilan was staying in the lanes and even using his turn signal during his joyride.

Sanders also claims Zilan was traveling at such speeds that at one point she floored her gas peddle, but couldn't catch up with him.

Eventually, Zilan was rear-ended at a stop light, and then decided to pull the SUV over.

CBS Wants Charlie Sheen Back on ‘Two and a Half Men’

Charlie Sheen's "WINNING" streak continues, as RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting that CBS wants the troubled actor back on 'Two and a Half Men' just weeks after Warner Bros. unceremoniously fired him from the show.

Insiders claim that a top network executive is ready to move on from Sheen's recent erratic behavior, which included a very public fallout with show creator Chuck Lorre, in which the tiger blood-fueled Sheen referred to Lorre as a "clown" and a "turd," among other things.
