The 14 Best Classic Twilight Zone Episodes
The Twilight Zone was such a groundbreaking series that it influenced our popular culture to a level many of us donít even realize. From Rod Serlingís silky and smoke-filled introductions, to the inevitable twist ending, the Twilight Zoneís black and white years were doubtless its best.

Here, in my humble opinion, are 14 of the best episodes of this series. Oh, and spoiler alerts.

Verify every plant identification via a trained botanist before ingesting any portion of any plant Ė because you are literally staking your life on the plant's identification. That said, here are a few of the more common plants and their traditional usages.
5 Superpowers We All Had as Babies (According to Science)
To many of us, kids are just a squishy bundle of preciousness that can't even take a decent punch. If there's anything super about them it's their ability to produce a seemingly infinite amount of poop. But you only think this because, like most super geniuses, babies revel in deception because they answer to no god. Not unlike Clark Kent, babies everywhere managed to fool the world with their mild-mannered public persona, masking the amazing superpowers nearly all of them possess. Slap a pair of tights on any random toddler, and you have a bona fide superhero (or, realistically, supervillain). The many kick-ass powers we lost as we got older include.
