Ultimately, the now-radioactive Independence was towed back to port in California, loaded with barrels of more radioactive waste, and scuttled off the coast in the shark-filled depths of the Pacific near the Farallon Islands.

Recent reports claim ride-hailing app Lyft has been quietly trying to sell itself recently, engaging in talks with everyone from current partners General Motors and Didi Chuxing to arch-rival Uber—as well as tech bigwigs such as Apple, Google, and Amazon. The potential sale chat went further with GM, which paid $500 million for a chunk of Lyft several months back, than with any of the other companies, according to the Times. Uber's failure to close a deal with its pink-hued foe may stem in part from the lowball offer the ride-sharing titan made to its smaller competitor.
