8 Grossest Things Bear Grylls has Consumed

Bear Grylls is one tough dude. Best known for his television series "Man vs. Wild," the 37-year-old was the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest (when he was 23) and was a member of the U.K. Special Forces. In 1996, he badly injured his spine when his parachute failed to completely deploy, sending him plummeting to the ground which he hit with high speed. Eighteen months later, he was standing on the summit of Everest. In addition to his climbing feats, Bear has crossed the North Atlantic in an inflatable boat, circumnavigated the U.K. on a jet ski, paramotered over both Mount Everest and Angel Falls in Venezuela, and even once rowed for 22 miles, naked, in a homemade bathtub along the Thames River to raise money for a friend who had been badly injured in a climbing accident.

15 Major Fast Food Failures

The fast food restaurant is a fixture of urban, suburban and rural America, appealing to people from every age group, income bracket and ethnic background. It’s as close as you can get in the United States to something everyone can agree on. Despite their dominant position in the US marketplace, the Taco Bells, Burger Kings and Pizza Huts of the nation still have to attract customers; kitchen staff, marketing departments and research teams are constantly looking for new ways to court them. However, not all of the ideas can be on a par with the Big Mac, and sometimes, they fall squarely into the “what were they thinking?” category, as anyone who’s tried to eat a McLobster sandwich can attest.

Top 10 Misconceptions We Want To Believe

We have previously done a number of lists of misconceptions, but this time we are adding a twist – these are the misconceptions we want to believe, for various reasons. This list might prove a little inflammatory, but I have tried to be as honest as possible. As always, it is a gross generalization to suggest that we all follow this thinking – as many of us don’t, but I hope that there will be at least one or two items here that each person can admit to believing, despite not being certain about their truth.

The Top 10 TV Detectives

Shamus, sleuth, gumshoe, P.I., private eye, private dick… We have so many names for detectives and so many great characters in literature, movies, television, and radio. Anne Iredale’s Top 10 Literary Detectives inspired this list. It made me think of all of the great TV detectives. According to the Museum of Broadcast Communications, the earliest TV detective shows were “Man Against Crime (1949-56, CBS, NBC, Dumont) and Martin Kane, Private Eye (1949-54, NBC).” They also classify TV detectives into three classic characters inspired by fiction: the hard-boiled detective, the clever puzzle-solver, and the amateur detective duo.

10 People Who Escaped Close Shaves With Death

Every day we walk the streets, most of the time little realizing how closely we might be dicing with death. The Grim Reaper is nothing if not unpredictable. Cars speed past in a seemingly parallel world, but the sidewalk would provide no protection if one were to come careering out of control, its path destined to cross your own.

We have viewed fashion trends through the years on our TV screens and have definitely seen the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to clothing. While few would dispute that the sleek, 1960s looks worn on the Dick Van Dyke Show or the glamorous couture on Dynasty defined the times, not all TV shows have led the way when it comes to fashion.
