Lauren Drain spent years with the hate group known as the Westboro Baptist Church, you know, those jerks who like to picket soldiers' funerals and tell gay people how much God hates them. She's come a long way since being excommunicated — in fact, she recently posed for the NOH8 campaign for marriage equality, saying, "Today I now try and lead by example, with love, compassion, and an open mind." Goodbye WBC, hello LGBTQ*!

Researchers at the University of Houston have developed a filtration system that can instantly neutralize and kill 99.8% of the coronavirus after a single pass through.
