A Chesterfield County, Virginia dentist recently performed a root canal on a 20 year-old chimpanzee named Kip. The Metro Richmond Zoo called Dr Bruce Overton because Kip’s upper canine tooth needed a root canal. Kip was sedated for the procedure…ya think? He’s doing well. There’s something wrong when a chimps insurance covers a root canal and mine doesn’t. He’s probably getting Invisaline next. (WRIC)

Long before The Jetsons debuted, science fiction fans envisioned a future including flying cars. Well, the future is here! The new AirCar is here! The AirCar — which features a BMW engine — has completed 70 hours of flying, including 200 take-offs and landings. And when it lands, it takes about three minutes to turn back into a car with the touch of a button. Never mind flying, it better come with cup holders, otherwise, why bother?
