5 Unbreakable Records You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

Ask a person about baseball records, and chances are they’ll throw out names like Ripken or DiMaggio… as in Cal Ripken Jr. playing 2,632 consecutive games, and Joe DiMaggio hitting safely for 56 consecutive games. Ask a casual fan about basketball records, and even the most jaded will know about stuff like Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a single game. Records like these are cemented into the pop-culture lexicon. They are hallowed, they are sacred, and they are aggrandized so because they are predominantly perceived as being unbreakable. Here are five records that are equally as unbreakable, but devoid of any historical pizazz.

And there are a lot of elements of film grosses, like DVD sales and international licensing fees, that we simply can't see for ourselves.

10 Video Games Your Girlfriend Doesn’t Need To See You Playing

Dead or Alive Paradise drops tomorrow, which may not mean anything to you if you’re not already a housebound otaku fan of the franchise. One great thing about the new title, though, is the fact that it’s for the PSP. Which means that it’s portable…which means that you don’t have to play on your widescreen TV…which means you’ll be able to hide in your closet so your girlfriend won’t catch you playing swimsuit dress-up with a bunch of virtual girls that resemble Real Dolls. Finally, your shameworthy gaming gets some privacy to match the perversion. We only wish we could say the same for the rest of these games—they’re a bit more difficult to hide since they require a console and TV or PC. The games—well, most of them, anyway—may not be relationship deal-breakers, but it’s probably best if your lady doesn’t walk in while you’re ogling the TV with a slack-jawed look on your face.

Top 5 Tough Latinas from Action Movies

One might think that when it comes to our various forms of entertainment, we’d have long since moved past the days of clichéd characters and racial stereotypes. Well if you actually believe that, then you’re as wrong as Barack Obama for not tattooing his birth certificate to his forehead. Apparently Hollywood still has a place in its cold dead heart for token black guys, Asian martial artists and overtly effeminate villains to ham it up on the big screen. One of the slightly less offensive though still prominent clichéd characters in genre films is the “tough Latina”. This familiar character usually appears in what would otherwise be sausage-fest action flicks. She’s basically there to spice things up, draw in a more diverse crowd and to show that the ladies can blow sh** up too. She also tends to have a “hot-blooded temper” and may even have to be restrained by the fellas from time to time.

11 Seriously Weird Chocolate-Coated Foods

These days, chocolate-covered bacon has lost its novelty as bacon has already managed to infiltrate every other food by now, so why not chocolate? On the other hand, there are still plenty of bizarre things to cover in chocolate in this big wide world of ours…and here are a few of the strangest. Most of us would never want to eat a raw onion in the first place, so why someone would think that dunking the onion in chocolate would change that fact is beyond me. The flavor seems to be exactly what you would expect too, one reviewer said that if you’re curious, just bite into a raw onion and then bite into a chocolate bar. Strangely, these seem to be a regular item in certain Philadelphia candy shops.
