This new tech is aimed at students, but lets us all drive an underwater vehicle from the comfort of our living room.
The LiveDiver device from Reach-In is installed at the Aquarium of Boise in Idaho. By logging into livediver-dot-com-forward slash-control-the-sub, you can drive a mini-sub in the shark and fish tank. The tech is already used for iPet Companion, which lets you see and play with cats at 13 shelters across the country.

A concept to pay your respects to the dead first in Farmville, Virginia, and now in four other states might catch on, but sounds a little strange.
The drive-thru viewings are set up almost like a bank. When you pull up, a drawer comes out with a guestbook, music plays and curtains open so you can see your loved one. It might sound odd, but funeral home owners say it's helping the elderly that are scared of them or not physically able to come inside.

This should make meat lovers happy. Imagine this, over a pound and a half of Arbys chicken tenders, roast turkey, ham, corned beef, brisket, Angus steak, bacon and of course roast beef, piled on a bun. The "Meat Mountain" isn't on the menu,but was advertised and you can ask for it to be made. It's usually the most expensive on local Arby's franchise menus, at a whopping ten bucks a piece.

Officials in Northern California are accusing a nudist resort of stealing water during the state's historic drought.
Rangers say the clothing-optional resort was illegally taking the water from a nearby upstream waterfall. The resort's owners say they are entitled to the use for fire safety and skinny dipping in their pool. Nobody's been arrested, but the rangers disconnected a hose leading from the resort to the waterfall.
