10 Longest Animal Lifespan in the Absence of Human Interference

We as human beings are accustomed to being the most important species on this Earth. In spite of our self consciousness, there are animal species out there able to outlive us and even more to exist better and longer in our absence. Have you ever asked yourself how long your pet is going to live, or if your kids will have the chance to see the Blue Macaw you loved so much at the zoo? If so, you most likely wondered about how long the animals of the world live. Some species are far more capable to cheat death than we are while some are truly an example of longevity. The main point is that if life is allowed to go on without us interfering in it, the animal world may surprise us with its longevity.

8 Technology Revolutions That Are Now Relics

Before iPods, BlackBerrys and laptops became part of our plugged-in culture, there was a host of gizmos and gadgets that set our tech-fueled fever alight. When Sony shuttered widespread production of the Walkman in April of this year, it sent a nostalgic shockwave through our system, reminding us of all the forgotten technologies that once reigned supreme. Whether it's the VCR, Polaroid camera or — if you're brave enough to admit it, the eight-track cassette — here’s a look back at eight mainstream technologies that have since become obsolete.

10 of the Dirtiest Songs Ever Written

This edition of Jacky’s Sass will explore the art of song writing – but instead of promoting talented song-writers and exploring beautiful lyrics about love and emotion, I’m putting my true journalistic capabilities to better use. I want to look at some of the dirtiest, most perverted songs ever written. It’s always fun to laugh at the stupid things artists write, but when you take a look at songs on the sexual end of the scale, you’re torn somewhere between laughter and shock. Before we start, I’m putting in a disclaimer; these lyrics are not for the faint of heart. It’s about to get NASTY up in here.

5 Reasons Predators Is The Sequel Predator Deserved

John McTiernan’s film Predator is an 80s classic, a mixed-genre masterpiece that perfectly blends action, sci-fi and horror into something beautiful. It spawned one of the internet’s greatest memes (“GET TO DA CHOPPA!”), has some truly awesome catchphrases (“I ain't got time to bleed.”) and introduced one of the greatest alien species cinema has ever seen. It’s biggest problem, however, is that it was too successful for its own good and, in the last 23 years, has spawned three other films featuring the Predator that have never been worthy of the original. This Friday, the fifth film in the franchise will be released: Nimrod Antal’s Predators. If you have already read my review of the film, you know how much I enjoyed it. The film’s greatest strength is its willingness to tie itself to the first film, making it the first film in the franchise to do so. Josh doesn't agree, but I think the Robert Rodriguez produced movie is the first to actually be worthy of the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, and here are five reasons why.

10 Stubborn Exercise Myths that Won’t Die, Debunked by Science

"No pain, no gain!" "You'll never bulk up without supplements." "Crunches are the key to six-pack abs!" It seems there are more questions and half-truths in the market about healthy exercise than there are clear, definitive facts—but the exercise industry is a multi-billion dollar business in the United States alone, built partially on selling gadgets and DVDs with incredible claims to people desperate to lose weight or look attractive. Meanwhile, good workout plans and simple truths lurk in the background waiting for their time to shine. All of this results in a ton of misinformation about exercise in general, and while the reality is different for everyone, we're taking some of those commonly held exercise myths to task, and we have science to back us up.

The Strawberry is called ‘the queen of fruits” In Asian countries because it’s packed with health benefits. Compared to fruits like apples, oranges or bananas, strawberries have the highest amount of nutrients. These juicy heart-shaped delights have much more to offer beyond sweetness and flavor.

10 Badass Movie Weapons

What do Mel Gibson, Uma Thurman, Sigourney Weaver, and Clint Eastwood have in common, other than Oscar nominations? At one point or another in their careers, they all played second fiddle to a badass weapon. It might have had a blade (or three), buttons (don’t push the red one), or been fictional, but they all left us wanting as they left trails of blood, acid, or body parts in their wake.

10 Mr. Rogers Quotes You Need to Read

If you haven't seen it, Fred Rogers' acceptance speech for a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 1997 Emmys is a fascinating watch. After being introduced as "the best neighbor any of us has ever had," by Tim Robbins, Mr. Rogers takes the stage amidst uproarious applause. A humble, gray Presbyterian minister being heralded as a hero on television's flashiest night—he sticks out, not just by virtue of his age, but also a sort of sheepish grace. This man does not have a false bone in his body. What happens next is probably singular among award shows. Mr. Rogers steps up to the microphone, and issues an order. "Would you just take, along with me, 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are? Those who have cared about you and wanted what was best for you in life. I'll watch the time."
