The 10 Largest Dump Trucks
The '08 Ford Super Duty F-450 6.4L is rated to haul a maximum payload of 6,120 pounds. Not bad for a street-legal rig that can supposedly fit into a shopping mall parking space, but imagine trucks that can haul more than 130 times that much weight in the bed, and you've got the Kings of Capacity. These massive "Off-Highway" mining dump trucks boast diesel engines that weigh as much as 25,000 pounds, have as many as 12 turbochargers, and make more than 10,000 lb-ft of torque. The trucks stand more than two stories tall, ride on 63-inch tires, and are stopped with the assistance of multiple-disc, oil-cooled brakes. Most of these trucks use hybrid diesel-electric drive systems to maximize efficiency and power delivery. To support payloads of up to 400 tons, these massive haulers have frame widths and depths that are measured in feet, not inches. The GVOW (gross vehicle operating weight) can exceed more than 650 tons. In fact, most of these dump trucks are so big that the parts have to be shipped to the job site so the trucks can be built on-site. Here are 10 of the highest-capacity trucks being sold today in their most powerful configurations.

The Top 15 Greatest Lies All Women’s Magazines Tell
Women’s magazines have come under fire in recent years, and for good reason. It’s taken a long time, and many hurt women, but these so-called publications are all getting called out more and more frequently for spewing loads of hot air — and often outright lies — to their readers. Spending no more than five minutes reading one of these rags can be enough to cause mild brain-damage, with the sheer amount of bad advice regurgitated month after month. We went through a few months’ worth of all the worst offenders, and honestly the effect is probably worse than sniffing glue — but we’ve got results. These are the 15 absolute worst lies that all women’s magazines tell — they’ve got millions of readers, so it may be a little scary.
12 of the Deadliest Unmanned Killing Machines in Our Arsenal
Artificial intelligence has not yet reached a level that allows for a truly autonomous robot, but we have come far in the last 50 years. Robots are in use today, performing duties from vacuuming our floors to building cars, to fighting our wars for us. Only a handful of these machines possess any degree of autonomy, and even fewer of those (thankfully) are armed. The United States military stables the greatest arsenal of armed robots in the world, and has several major companies spearheading the advanced robotics research and development industry, with the singular stated goal of creating a better war machine.
The Top 10 Acting Performances by Musicians
Musicians often get laughed at for having aspirations to act in film, and usually it’s pretty easy to see why.

Still, there have been a number of singers, rappers, and rock stars that successfully crossed over into the world of acting, often to huge critical and popular acclaim. The following are ten of the most famous examples.
The 12 Most Tarnished Brands in Technology
Quick, what’s the most admired technology brand? Maybe you answered Apple. Or Google. Or maybe even Microsoft. I’m reasonably certain, however, that none of the brands you’re about to read about sprung to mind. They’re all damaged goods–severely damaged goods in most cases.
The Top 10 Kick-Ass Native Americans
The first Thanksgiving probably consisted a handful of starving settlers dumbfounded that they were still alive and eating food previously thought to be inedible, like eel and corn. Thankfully, they had Native Americans like Squanto to show them what to eat to survive. They repaid Squanto and his people by enslaving, massacring and destroying their entire way of life. However, many great Native Americans refused to take it lying down. They fought back, proving themselves smarter and better warriors until the sheer number of Europeans and their diseases overwhelmed them.
