1. Tiger Woods, his ex-wife Elin Nordegren, and his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn hung out, cause they are apparently all buddies now. Remember when Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren got divorced in 2010? There were cars driven into trees, mistresses popping up all over the place, and that awful Nike commercial. It was pretty much the ugliest, most public divorce ever. So it's weird that Woods, his ex, and his new gf Lindsey Vonn have somehow managed to make friends with each other. TMZ reports that this weekend the three of them attended Tiger and Elin's son Charlie's tee ball game together (I'm guessing Charlie is pretty good at hitting balls with sticks), and Us Weekly says they even went on a double date with Elin's new boyfriend, billionaire Chris Cline. I have never known TMZ or Us Weekly to stretch the truth, so I guess congratulations are in order on patching things up! You guys are an inspiration (at least in this particular area).

2. The FDA approved a powdered alcohol called Palcohol. Then they unapproved it. It might seem bad enough that the FDA issued approval for a freeze-dried alcoholic substance called Palcohol, which can turn water into vodka or rum (great, then what do we need Jesus for anymore?). But even worse is that the FDA then took back their approval of the company's labels, claiming it was "issued in error." Seriously, guys? There's a big enough loophole over there that you can accidentally approve labels? Isn't that, like, your whole job? While Palcohol does sound sort of fun—you could sneak it into sports venues or trick your friends into getting wasted!—there's really no respectable use for it, and the opportunities for abuse are endless. It's like Four Loko all over again, if Four Loko could be snorted.
