(NEWSER) ?? Proper etiquette, a good sense of humor, and a selfless gesture are features of some of this week's most uplifting stories:

? Speeding Granny Sends Ticketing Cop Thank-You Note: Giving stickers and toy sheriff badges to a Seattle woman's grandkids earned one Idaho state trooper a heartfelt thank-you note ? even though he gave the woman a speeding ticket.

? Guy's Hilarious Obit: Don't E-mail Me, I'm Dead: Kevin McGroarty worked in advertising for some 30 years. His final project: a "500-word mini masterpiece," in the words of AdWeek-his own obituary. McGroarty shows it's possible to keep your sense of humor even in the worst of times. And friends, "Please, don't e-mail me, I'm dead."

? U.S. Doctor With Ebola Turns Down Serum So Colleague Can Have It: When an experimental serum showed up in Liberia, there was only enough for one person. American Kent Brantly, a doctor, turned it down so his colleague could get it instead. (Brantly arrived in the U.S. yesterday.)

? Turkish Official Says Women Shouldn't Laugh; Country Cracks Up: Turkey's deputy PM doesn't like it when women laugh in public, but he's caused plenty of hilarity across the country. In a widely mocked speech attacking "moral corruption," Bulent Arinc slammed women for, among other things, laughing in public. After his speech, hundreds of Turkish women took to social media to share photos of themselves doing just that.

? Teen Invents Way to Stop Hot Car Deaths: An inventor has developed a possible solution to the recurring problem of kids left in hot cars-and she did so before even graduating from high school. Alissa Chavez, 17, came up with the basic idea for her lifesaving contraption for a school science fair. The "Hot Seat" uses a pressure sensor and your car keys.
