Here Are 11 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Andre the Giant

It seems like only yesterday, we were running around telling anyone who'd listen that “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father.

As you're charitable in life, you could also be charitable in death. This holiday season -- Halloween -- you could start thinking about a kind of ghoulish donation: your body. J. Nathan Bazzel has already made his plans. In 2001, he signed all the necessary documents to donate his body parts to the Mütter Museum, a part of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.

Top 10 Facts About Space Food

Space may be the final frontier, but it is also one hell of a restaurant. Over the the past half-century, scientists and space engineers have not only been racing to get their rockets safely outside the Earth’s atmosphere, they’ve been working to ensure the menu keeps their astronauts coming back for more.
