The 15 Best Hot Dog Spots In The Country

The citizens of New York were shell-shocked when the news spread that the Gray’s Papaya in Greenwich Village had closed its doors suddenly. For those that have grown up in New York, Gray’s Papaya hot dogs and their signature fruity drinks have been a well-loved, late-night delicacy. Unfortunately, Gray’s has fallen victim to the timeless tale in New York of landlords raising the rent too high and having to close up shop. The last standing Gray’s Papaya is still alive in the Upper West Side, and New Yorkers are praying this one stays around for a while. But just in case, we thought we’d recommend some tasty alternatives to help dry those eyes. So, to all you hot dog lovers everywhere, here’s a reason to eat your heart out.

10 Fast Food Items Worse For You Than The KFC Double Down

KFC's Double Down -- the bacon sandwich where two pieces of fried chicken replace the bread -- has been catching a lot of flack lately; much of it deserved. But a quick comparison of the nutritional (for want of a better word) info between the Double Down and some items on the menus at other fast food joints shows that the "warped creation of a syphilitic brain" might not be as bad for you as a salad at Wendy's. According to KFC, the Original Recipe Double Down has 540 calories, 32g of fat and 1380mg of sodium. With just a quick peek at the websites for Burger King, McDonald's and Wendy's, I had no trouble finding 10 items with higher calorie and fat (and in almost all cases, sodium) counts than the Double Down.

5 Horror Movies That Shouldn't Have Bombed

Box Office success has very little to do with a film’s actual quality. There are so many factors at play – the release date, the marketing campaign, the general mood of the moment or the studio dumping it. And sometimes, audiences are just too dumb to get it the first time around. A surprising amount of the films we love and revere as classics today (though not every film on this list is thought of as such – some of them I just plain like) either flat-out bombed on their initial release or “underperformed” with regard to the expectations of the studio and filmmakers.

9 Developments That Prove We Really Are Living In The Future

There is little doubt that as time marches on, the sheer amount of impressive technology that each of us has access to will grow exponentially. After all it was only 30 years ago that the thought of home computing was a novel and futuristic concept, whereas today, the thought of not having immediate access to some kind of computer is a scary and disconcerting one. Technology has gotten to the point where all of those fantastic visions of the future we grew up with have come true in some form or another. To me, this proves that we currently are living in the sci-fi future so frequenty imagined in the past.

5 Ways Not to End Up a Statistic on Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer and, as I know from a trip one May weekend a few years ago with my daughter, a busy time for emergency rooms nationwide. (The triage nurse congratulated me for getting to the ER before sundown, because it seems that after dark is when most of the accidents that lead to ER trips occur.) So that you don’t end up a statistic on Memorial Day weekend, I thought you would be interested in these five tips from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) on how to stay safe and healthy over the holiday weekend.

The Top 51 Degrees for Getting a Job and Making Money

With the current downturn in the economy, the number one thing you want to look for in a degree is a good chance of finding a job once you graduate. Of course, the amount of money you can make is important. However, you don’t want to fall into the trap of choosing a degree that leads to a high paying job but has too many job seekers in the marketplace. A degree with a competitive job market lowers your chance of getting a job and you could easily end up unemployed or underemployed struggling to pay off student loans.

Here Are 11 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Andre the Giant

It seems like only yesterday, we were running around telling anyone who'd listen that “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Actually, we did say that just yesterday, as the famous line from the movie 'The Princess Bride' has been stuck in our minds for over 25 years. In honor of the classic flick, we took a look at one of its biggest stars (literally and figuratively) André Roussimoff — known to the world as André the Giant. The legend himself has been gone for almost twenty years but his name and image are still a major part of pop culture. Here are 11 things you probably didn't know about “The Eighth Wonder of the World”

7 Bizarro Life Lessons From Kevin Smith's Latest Book, Tough Sh*t

outhwest Airlines may agree with the "fat" part of Kevin Smith's new book Tough Sh*t: Life Advice From a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good from Gotham Books, but Silent Bob is far from lazy. He's an author, comic book store owner, professional stage farceur and podcaster who runs a network of podcasts for other big mouths called SModcast (check out our cover story on him last year, "Kevin Smith: "I Am So, Like, Sick of Movies and Shit"). And in case a couple of flops like Mallrats, Jersey Girl and Cop Out didn't ruin him for you, he's also a filmmaker whose first movie, Clerks, inspired many a budding early-'90s director to wrack up a mountain of film school debt.

When Gamers Decorate: 7 Awesome Video Game Rooms

When I say "video game rooms," I'm not talking about arcades or basement rec rooms, but each is a room in a home that is decorated around the theme of one video game. The attention to detail in these rooms is fantastic; in fact they involved so much more than buying stickers or printed bedding and accessories. They are all labors of love.
