10 '80's Stars Who Look Good Today
The 1980's—a time of big hair, scrunchies, shoulder pads, and leg warmers. Suffice it to say that, looking back on it, the decade wasn't the most attractive.

Top 10 Lamest Avengers Of All Time
Assuming you haven’t turned on the TV since February or been to the theater in the last couple of years, you might not be aware of it, but there’s an Avengers movie coming out. With Joss Whedon directing and a slew of successful solo superhero films preceding it, expectations are high, and nerds like myself are already falling over themselves, picking apart trailers and speculating on which heroes might make cameos. But running time is scarce and, for a team that’s been around since 1963 and frequently switches members, you can bet there are a lot of characters that won’t make the cut. That may be for the best, because the Avengers have certainly seen their share of unimpressive members over the years.
Top 10 War Movies of All Time
We’ve combed through the internet to find the best lists of war movies and came up with a list that is sure to suit every war movie fan in the world. The criteria was pretty straightforward; there had to be actual acts of war involved in the story line (in other words; soldiers’ stories) and the movies had to be based on true historical events. Once we found 10 candidates they were ordered by gross theater sales, post theater sales, critical reviews and cultural relevance. If that’s not scientific enough we also had an explode-o-meter that Kurt Geiger keeps in his garage for some unknown reason.
5 Best Sites to Help Students Prepare for the SATs
Through the years, I have tutored many kids for the SATs. Many were students whose parents couldn’t afford to pay for tutoring lessons; others were just looking for resources to be able to study on their own. Every year, thousands of students with dreams of going to a good college, try to prepare themselves for the SATs and find that there are tons of paid resources, but not many free ways to study. Parents search for ways to help their kids but find themselves having to spend hundreds of dollars on study material. Well, with a belief that everyone should have the same opportunities, I have prepared a list of sites where any student can prepare for the SAT test for free.

4 Breakfast Breads Worse for You Than Doughnuts
It's sort of incredible to me what symbols of wanton excess doughnuts have become; what totems of over-indulgence and fat-kid behavior. They were once fed to soldiers as a health food during World War II, after all. I'm not quite sure when things went off the rails in terms of public perception, although I think Homer Simpson had something to do with it. Anyway, when Dunkin' Donuts said it was taking a "glazed donut breakfast sandwich" nationwide earlier this week, the country let out a collective gasp of head-wagging disapproval, as if Dunkin had crossed some kind of invisible threshold of common breakfast sandwich decency. The thing is, the school-marmish reaction doesn't map particularly well onto the actual health credentials of doughnuts, which are hardly as ruinous to one's health or to the moral fabric of American society as everyone seems to believe.
