The Top 20 TV Shows Of The Last 20 Years
E! Online are celebrating their 20th anniversary so they decided to come up with a list of the top 20 TV shows from the past 20 years and they did a pretty good job in my opinion. I agree with a lot of these choices but not exactly in this order, for me I would rank Buffy The Vampire Slayer as number 1 because the writing and acting on that show is just incredible. The likes of Modern Family and True Blood are too soon to see if they deserve a place on a list like this. But overall a good list.
13 Awesome Filming Locations You Can Actually Visit
Have you ever watch a film and thought, “WOW! That place looks amazing. I would love to visit it.” Or perhaps you feel like your life won’t be complete until you have had your photo taken on Forest Gump’s bench. The following are a list of filming locations along with their Google map locations so you can visit them for yourself.
51 Things You Aren't Allowed to See on Google Maps
Depending on which feature you use, Google Maps offers a satellite view or a street-level view of tons of locations around the world. You can look up landmarks like the Pyramids of Egypt or the Great Wall of China, as well as more personal places, like your ex’s house. But for all of the places that Google Maps allows you to see, there are plenty of places that are off-limits. Whether it’s due to government restrictions, personal-privacy lawsuits or mistakes, Google Maps has slapped a "Prohibited" sign on the following 51 places.
11 Most Dangerous Holidays for Driving
For those that didn't read Wednesday's list (or skipped the preamble), my Excel-excelling friend Nathan and I conducted this study using the 15 years of available NHTSA fatal car accident data (1994-2008). The data is adjusted for day of the week and month (here's the explanation for that, from Wednesday). These are in order, building up to the most dangerous holiday in America -- the one where your chance of getting into a fatal car accident goes up by an incredible *50 percent*. But we've got 10 others to get through before we get to that point.
7 Items Employers Want to See on Telecommuters’ Resumes
When you’re applying for a new job, your resume is often used as a fast way to assess whether you look like a good candidate for a position — at least on paper. That’s just as true if you’re looking for a position that allows you to telecommute as it is if you’re looking to work in an office. But the skills and characteristics that a hiring manager is looking for on a telecommuter’s resume aren’t always the same as when you’re looking for other jobs. Among other things, employers are looking for the following.
8 Ways to Overcome Jealousy and Envy
I know that the fastest way to despair is by comparing one’s insides with another’s outsides, and that Max Ehrmann, the author of the classic poem “Desiderata,” was absolutely correct when he said that if you compare yourself with others you become either vain or bitter. Or, as Helen Keller put it: “Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged.”
8 Most Overpriced 2010 Cars
Are car buyers returning to lots? Some signs point to yes. Last month GM reported its first quarterly profit in three years, pushed in part by increased worldwide sales. Some expect this to continue. "We're going to see improvement, but it is not going to be as robust a recovery as we had thought at the beginning of the year," says Jesse Toprak, vice president of industry trends and insights at TrueCar.com. "We'll get there, it's just going to take a little bit longer." Potential buyers getting a head start may want to look beyond domestic cash-back rebates and Toyota's 0%-financing offers. That’s because even with incentives like these, some autos are worth less than their sticker price. Among them: the $19,030 Chevrolet HHR, $20,850 GMC Sierra 1500 and $31,575 Jeep Commander.
