The 7 Most Incredible Telescopes In Existence

The biggest telescope dish right now is at the Arecibo Observatory of Puerto Rico. This dish took three years to build (1960-1963) and, clocking in at about 20 acres in size, has enjoyed a 50-year reign as the largest telescope dish.

7 Best Pump Shotguns for Less Than $500

A pump shotgun is like your old hunting truck. It might not be fancy. It might not have a lot of frills. But when you turn the key, it always gets the job done. That’s why many hunters have chosen a pump shotgun as their first shotgun, and it’s why many have chosen one as their last shotgun.

On the subject of price, you could pay a lot of money for a pump with glossy walnut and gold inlay. But that’s sort of like putting chrome rims on your johnboat trailer. A pump, rather, should be used and abused. Yes, you get a lot for your money when you buy a pump shotgun.

The 7 Best Western-Themed Sci-Fi TV Episodes

As anyone who ever read Topless Robot's list of the 10 Greatest Sci-Fi Westerns will be quick to point out, the merging of cowboys and aliens is always a welcome thing (okay, except when Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig are involved, apparently).

So much so in fact that Western episodes of sci-fi series have now become a familiar trope for TV writers to take advantage of. The reasoning for this is simple: the Old West opens up plenty of exciting storytelling possibilities that can shake up the status quo of a series. Thusly, sci-fi shows ranging from Batman to Star Trek: The Next Generation have all briefly transplanted their characters to the lawless frontier with enormous success.

But if you’re like me, you want to get your money’s worth. I want more than a good night’s rest for my $200. So when I leave the hotel, my bag is full of “extras” that help me save cash elsewhere.

The 10 Unhealthiest Fast-Food Hamburgers

Nowadays it seems like every burger chain is obsessed with cramming as much food between two buns as humanly possible. Be it four burger patties, 10 strips of bacon, blue cheese, or even a fried chicken patty, it seems like we’ve lost sight of the sandwich that started it all: the humble hamburger. Believe it or not, there was a time when people were able to take a thin patty of beef, place it between two halves of a bun, apply a squirt of ketchup and possibly some diced onions, and call it lunch. No cheese, no mayo, not even lettuce and tomato.
