Ah, technology. Is there anything it can't do in this day and age?

It's certainly led to some high-tech marriage proposals in recent years, but this one, made with the aid of a drone, may have set the new high water mark.

A man from San Francisco, Calif., Jason, proposed to his girlfriend, Christina, in the city's Alamo Square Park with the excuse of taking some pictures of her.

She's pregnant, so that excuse was certainly a good one.

As she posed and discussed the arrival of their unborn child, he had a remote-controlled helicopter drone deliver a ring in the geekiest proposal of all time.

Geekiest, most elaborate and maybe awesomest.

Hyundai has apologized for an ad that makes light of suicide.

The spot features a man trying to end his own life via exhaust fumes, only to find it impossible to do so because the iX35 SUV runs on water vapor.

Shockingly, few found the spot funny.

The company said in a statement:

"Hyundai Motor deeply and sincerely apologizes for the offensive viral ad. The ad was created by an affiliate advertising agency, Innocean Europe, without Hyundai's request or approval."

A woman was recently arrested for having 333 heroin packets stuffed into her bra. No, her name as not Jenelle Evans ... sorry if there was any confusion.

Kim Decker Mug Shot

State troopers in New Jersey seized 333 packets of heroin they found had been stuffed inside the bra of Kim Decker, 54, following a traffic stop.

Decker was busted Monday after officers spotted her driving erratically.

Without a valid license, her Honda Accord was impounded, and when her two passengers got out of the car, officers spotted a wax fold used to hold heroin.

Don't turn around, Ace of Base fans. You may be disappointed to learn that Ulf Ekberg, one of the band's founding members, has a disturbing secret:

He was in a Nazi band.

Also, he has ties to a political party that reportedly has extremist tendencies and leans uncomfortably toward the hate-group side of the spectrum.

The revelations, which are admittedly not so much new as little-known, surfaced in a recent article about the "All That She Wants" band's members.

It turns out that Ekberg was at once point in a band called Commit Suicide.

One of their songs contains the lyrics, "Men in white hoods march down the road, we enjoy ourselves when we're sawing off n-----s’ heads / Immigrant, we hate you!"

"Out, out, out, out! Nordic people, wake up now! Shoot, shoot, shoot!"

A body pulled from the water just offshore in a Providence, R.I., park was that of Sunil Tripathi, a Brown University student missing since last month.

Tripathi was identified through a forensic dental exam. He was just 22.

A cause of death has not been determined, but the news puts an end to the mystery of his disappearance, which became doubly painful for his family.

Amateur online sleuths wrongly identified him as a possible suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. Of course, this turned out not to be the case.

Utah man David Whipple bought a hamburger at McDonald's in 1999.

Big deal, right? The extraordinary part is that he didn't eat it. He put it in his coat pocket, hung it up and somehow didn't notice until many years later.

Scarily, it looks almost exactly the same now as it did then ...

Food experts say the burger didn't rot because its small size and relatively large surface area help it to lose moisture fast, minimizing mold or bacterial growth.

There are also likely a TON of preservatives in it. Just a hunch,

A fourth grader’s essay supporting marriage equality is going viral this week after a teacher posted a photo of it - typos and all - on Reddit.

“One of my fourth grade students chose gay marriage as his topic for a persuasive essay,” the teacher, a Reddit user who goes by rafa3l2, wrote.

“This is the result. More sense than some adults.”

Pro-Gay Marriage Essay

The student wrote in support of gay marriage:

“Why gay people should be able to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it."

"You should be happy for them because it’s a big moment in their life. When I went to my grandparents wedding it was the happies moment.”

How ironic. An airline called Virgin America has installed a new service in which it encourages passengers to get lucky.

Sort of.

Described on the company's official website as "seat-to-seat delivery," customers are now able to order snacks, meals or drinks for ANOTHER seat on the plane, including with these items a text message of some kind.

The Federal Reserve will begin circulating a redesigned $100 bill this fall.

October 8 is the expected release date for the redesigned note, which was originally planned for February ... 2011. Production issues tabled that for a long time.

New Hundred Dollar Bill

Unwanted creases during printing shelved the bill for over two years, but the U.S. Mint says that issue has been resolved, so the revamped $100 is a go.

The new $100 bill incorporates a host of colors and added security features, such as a blue, 3-D security ribbon and a disappearing Liberty Bell in an inkwell.

The features are designed to thwart counterfeiters, who will eventually figure out ways to beat them like always. Oh well.

At least it looks pretty freaking cool.
