Half-pint tells all

Little Dysfunctional House: Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the beloved “Little House on the Prairie” series for children, also wrote a much grittier autobiography that depicted the dark side of frontier living: domestic abuse, love triangles gone wrong, drunkards lighting themselves on fire.

For the screen version, Mickey Rourke is in talks for Michael Landon's old role as Pa.

Little Red Corvette: The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette can be ordered with a camera and audio recorder mounted in the windshield trim. The gadget is intended to protect against unauthorized joyriding by valets.

An much more useful feature for the typical Corvette owner, however, would be automated reminders to order more Viagra.

Kostly kids: A child born in 2013 will cost a typical family an average of $245,340 until he or she reaches 18, according to the government.

Parents can recover the money, however, when the kid moves back home after college: Give them an 18-year lease on their old bedroom, at $1,134 a month.
