30 MPG: Ten Fun Cars That Won’t Break The Bank At The Pump

Since we don’t think we’re ever going to see truly “cheap” gas again, we figure it’s high time to trade in that gas guzzler on something a little sportier. For the first time ever, we’ve been able to find 10 fun-to-drive cars that all net at least 30 mpg on the highway. Each of these offers truly impressive thrills for enthusiasts. Our list was a little longer until we started throwing out cars like the Kia Optima Turbo and the Buick Regal Turbo. Sure, they might pack decent power, but they’re just not the kind of cars that will draw attention at your neighborhood car show. They’re fun on a different kind of scale. Instead, we chose to concentrate on cars that will truly delight enthusiasts. Our criteria was simple: Each car had to net at least 30 mpg on the highway and each has to be genuinely fun to drive. We didn’t necessarily pick the most eco-friendly model in each lineup – we picked the ones we’d most want to enjoy on a closed course or on a winding country road.

Hello, cyber friends. I would like to address something that is causing me great anxiety and has become the bastard child of social media. Now don’t get me right, I love social media. Twitters, The Facebook, Instantgrams, - they are all amazing and consume just about 90% of my waking hours. However, with the good comes the bad. A dark side of social media has evolved. And I don’t mean FEM/DOMS on Craigslist; I am talking annoyances such as The Poke, Farmville, political rants, #blessed humble brags, potty training posts, and so forth. But there is one granddaddy of them all that sucks mud.

They're the ones that keep it tolerable. The people we see every day... well, they just get annoying, don't they?

12 Princess Bride Secrets Spilled by Cary Westley Elwes

A book? In The Princess Bride, Fred Savage wasn't into them, forcing his grandfather (Peter Falk) to explain, "When I was your age, television was called books." But The Princess Bride star Cary Elwes has written a book about the making of his most famous movie, called As You Wish, and it's a special book with fencing, fighting, torture, giants, chases, escapes, true love and miracles, plus nuclear explosions, drunk driving and a blast of flatulence that, since the invention of flatulence, left all others behind. Here are a dozen of the best Princess Bride fun facts that Elwes reveals, including the time the film was sanctified in Vatican City, what other famous strongman was almost Fezzik, the movie's unknown Star Wars connection, and the amount of booze Andre the Giant pounded every day, which is truly, yes, inconceivable.
