Luke Burbank, host of the radio show and podcast "Too Beautiful to Live," brings us his wrap-up of the week’s awesome and not awesome news.

Italian carmaker Fiat will be offering espresso machines in their cars, come October. The installed Lavazza espresso machine, placed comfortably near a driver's crotch, also includes a spoon holder, sugar holder, and Modo Mio pod holder. Unfortunately for U.S. caffeine addicts, the Fiat 500L with Lavazza espresso machine will only be for sale in Italy, not the US.

And in today's edition of turning lemons into lemonade, a recently divorced Oregon woman decided to sell her family's former house and turn finding out her husband cheating on her with a "22 year old college student who likes yoga... and, other people's husbands" into a marketing campaign.
