Despite a new report indicating a 30 percent drop in traffic congestion across the U.S., drivers in Honolulu still waste 58 hours each year sitting in their cars. The study was produced by INRIX, a company devoted to traffic information and apps, which analyzed the data from some 100 million GPS-equipped commercial and passenger vehicles, traveling on an estimated 300,000 miles of roads. According to the study, drivers in America’s 10 worst traffic cities will sit idle more than 40 hours a year, on average — with Honolulu, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York leading the way for slow going.

10 Athletes With Insane Diets

Arguably one of the biggest draws of becoming a professional athlete is the seemingly limitless amount of food one can consume after finishing a day’s worth of strenous workouts. When your job relies on your physical strength, every calorie counts. While it’s undeniable that professional athletes are at their peak fitness levels, not every player achieves this status by heeding a diet of kale and kombucha. Some have chosen looser regimens, making things like McNuggets the center of their post-workout meals. But either way, the sheer volume of food intake truly blows us away.

10 Vintage Soviet School Propaganda Posters

One of the ways in which the mighty Soviet Union maintained control was through extensive propaganda aimed at young children. Education was the cornerstone of Stalin’s efforts to create a new society. And the media that students were exposed to in the classroom promoted the communist system, obedience to the state, and the rejection of Western ways of life. These efforts were undoubtedly a form of social control, and at the same time they depicted the utopia that the Soviet Union intended to create. The propaganda was designed to strengthen values like co-operation and respect for authority figures and to encourage the generation of workers being raised under communism to better themselves. There was also a strong emphasis on technological and scientific advancement that is interesting to note.

6 Reasons Why It’s Good to Be a Loser

It was impossible to miss the white sign that hung over the wall of Saint Mary’s high school lacrosse field yesterday. The thing was as tall as our two-story house with letters as big as construction cranes. With just one word: “Prom?” On the hill behind it stood an adorable high-school junior with red roses. It would have been a perfect scene right out of a Jennifer Aniston movie… had she said yes. Ouch. So the poor guy packed up the humongous sign and his roses, and walked to his car with his chin buried in his chest. I wish I could have run up to him and said, “This experience will make you stronger in the long run … trust me.” Because that’s not just a shallow attempt at consolation. It’s absolutely true.

20 Memorable Quotes from Iconic African-Americans

Perhaps it’s easiest to think of Black History Month as just another moment to acknowledge that freedom isn’t free, like the Fourth of July or Memorial Day. When Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963, and declared, “In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the ‘unalienable Rights’ of ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’ It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’ ”

16 Ways I Blew My Marriage

You know what blows big time? The other night I was sitting with my family, most of whom are very successfully married. We were going in a circle giving our best marriage advice to my little sister on the eve of her wedding. It’s somewhat of a family tradition. But that’s not what blows. What really blows is that I realized I don’t have any good marriage advice to give. After all, I’ve never had a successful marriage out of the two marriages I did have. And so, when it was my turn, I just made a joke about divorce and how you should always remember why you loved your spouse when you first met her so that when times get tough, you can find someone new that is just like she was. There were a couple courtesy giggles, but overall my humor wasn’t welcome in such a beautifully building ring of profundity.
