6 Signs You Love Your Dog More Than You Love Most People

When I left for college three years ago, I mentally prepared myself to say goodbye to my family. I knew move-in day would be tough, but at least I would have the entire day with them before I actually had to say my goodbyes. However, halfway through my drive up to school, I suddenly felt a wave of panic spread over me. A pit formed in my stomach. I had forgotten to say goodbye to my dog. What was he going to think? How could I just leave him like that?

Top 5 Ugliest Concept Trucks

Concept vehicles are meant to inspire and provoke the imagination with original design and functionality not found in current cars and trucks.

6 Security Strategies from a Top Cybercrime Cop

If you show up at Gordon Snow's home and need to check your email, don't expect to jump on his computer or Wi-Fi network. He'll want a scan of your computer first. And sharing his password with you? Forget about it. Security is serious business for this USAA member who, until just recently, served as assistant director of the FBI's Cybercrime Division. And he wants you to take it seriously too. "I really do believe that cybersecurity is the responsibility of every individual. You are only as strong as the weakest link," says Snow. The Internet Crime Complaint Center, run by the FBI and other organizations, processed more than 300,000 complaints last year, 120,000 of which were forwarded to law-enforcement agencies. And Kaspersky, a cybersecurity firm, recently reported that the number of Web-based malicious software attacks topped 940 million in 2011 — a 16% increase in just one year.

10 Most Educated Darwin Award Winners

The Darwin Awards is a time-honored way to laugh at people who stupidly risk life and limb in the dumbest ways possible. Since its formal creation in 1993, the website has chronicled ridiculous deaths and injuries from around the world, and a book series was also launched in 2000. In 2006, a Hollywood comedy, The Darwin Awards, starring Joseph Fiennes and Winona Ryder, was even made based on the honors. What’s most interesting about the Darwin Awards to us, though, is that although “winners” are often various flavors of idiot, some have been highly qualified and supposedly intelligent members of society. Yes, philosophers, scientists and postgraduate students have all received this medal of dishonor.

10 Deadliest Snipers of World War II

The highly skilled sharpshooters known as snipers (a term that originated in British India to describe hunters able to pick off the elusive “snipe” bird) became vitally important during the Second World War. Fighting on the Eastern Front, the Soviets, in particular, were expert marksmen — and noticeably dominate the following list. The Soviet Union was the only country that had expressly trained sniper units in the decade leading up to the World War Two, and their superiority (with the obvious exception of the top-ranked sniper on this list) is clearly displayed by the numbers beside the names of its marksmen. Expert sharpshooters such as Vasily Zaytsev — who reputedly killed 225 soldiers during the Battle of Stalingrad — proved beyond all doubt their immense value to their military forces during the war. In the aftermath, their importance was never to be underestimated.

7 Times When It's Okay To Dumpster Dive

Back in our salad days, my husband and I outfitted much of our New Orleans apartment with dumpster dive goodies. We found our coffee table in the trash behind a defunct Japanese restaurant. Some serious sanding removed the cigarette burns and -- presto! -- we had a unique centerpiece for our living room. We next culled a wrought-iron headboard from the flea market dumpster. It's pre-antiqued look was ideal for our French Quarter home. Soon our walls were covered with posters, tapestries and hand-woven rugs rescued from other trash bins. All these finds, not to mention many an unusual nick and knack, gave our slave-quarters apartment a unique flair for nearly nothing. We were just kids, justifiably proud of our dumpster dive finds. Many years later, however, I still find it difficult to pass a well-stuffed trash barrel without peeking in, particularly during the spring days when students in our college town are trashing unwanted belongings. Old habits die hard. Besides, there's something criminal about sending perfectly good consumer goods to our overflowing landfill.

20 TV Series Inspired By Movies

Given that NBC’s new series, “Parenthood,” was inspired by the 1989 Ron Howard film of the same name, it was hard to resist the opportunity to take a look back at some other programs which originated on the silver screen. Obviously, Hollywood has never been afraid to recycle its properties – because, y’know, it’s just so much easier – but when you’ve got a good (and familiar) premise and you’ve got writers who know how to build on it, then why not take advantage of it? Not every film deserves to be turned into a television series, a fact which is borne out by this list of 15 such shows that never got past the pilot stage (and sometimes it worked just as badly in reverse, as you can see here), but looking back on the television landscape and seeing what classic series have emerged as a result, it’s hard to complain. First up, a list of our 20 favorite series inspired by movies. You’ll likely disagree with some of our choices, but…well, frankly, you always disagree with some of our choices, and we’ve learned to live with that.

12 Things You Didn’t Know About The Cast Of The Walking Dead

The much maligned, often loved, and always watched The Walking Dead returns to AMC this Sunday with a very promising season three. The new season will introduce two new characters considered by the graphic novel readers to be the most bad ass characters of the series — The Governor and Michonne — and season three also represents the meat of the novels. Assuming that Glen Mazzara picks up where he left off with the last half of the second season, The Walking Dead MIGHT actually become the show we’ve always wanted it to be, finally displaying the full potential we saw in the pilot of the series. Before we re-invest ourselves in the series, I thought it’d be fun to get to know the cast members a little better, so here is some fun personal and professional facts about 12 members of The Walking Deadcast.
