Super Glue Inventor Harry Wesley Coover Jr. Dead at 94

Super Glue inventor Harry Wesley Coover Jr. died Saturday night of congestive heart failure at his home in Kingsport, TN, the NY Times is reporting. He was 94.

Though he held over 460 patents in his career, Coover was best known for his revolutionary invention, which he created accidentally while testing compounds at Eastman Codak's Tennessee laboratory in 1951. 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.

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.

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.

Hawaii Named Happiest State in the US

Hawaii was the country's happiest state in 2010.

This according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which takes into account emotional health, physical health, healthy behaviors, and job satisfaction.

While one might guess that Hawaii's stellar climate has something to do with its residents' contentment, the rest of the top five happiest states were rounded out by Wyoming, North Dakota, Alaska and Colorado -- each far from being a tropical paradise.

On the other end of the spectrum, West Virginia was deemed the most miserable state, followed by Kentucky and Mississippi. Read on for the complete list.
