7 Hottest Female Comedians (Who Are Actually Funny)
Hot, funny woman. Many men – those with no sense of humour and even less taste in the fine points of the fairer sex – would argue it’s a contradiction in terms. “Ugg,” the conversation at a bar might begin. “Women can’t be hot and funny; dang, they can’t even be funny.” But such smug chauvinistic views would be quickly done away with by the cutting sarcasm, acerbic wit and bludgeoning expletives wielded by this roll call of comic geniuses. Oh, and did we mention they’re all smoking hot too. Imagine the stimulating conversation over dinner. You know what – we could skip dinner and get straight to desert.
15 Incredibly Stupid Ways People Made Their Millions

Sure they may seem like sweet, wholesome girls who enjoy cheering for their favorite team on the sidelines but this is far from the truth.

10 Things You Didn't Know About the Brain
Throughout history, the human brain has been remarkably good at dismissing itself. Everyone from ancient Egyptians to Aristotle has downplayed the role of the mysterious stuff between our ears. Famed anatomist Galen gave the brain credit as commander of movement and speech, but even he brushed aside the white and gray matter, figuring the fluid-filled ventricles inside the brain did most of the work. Nowadays, research and technological advances have allowed us a closer look at the human brain. In the process, we've learned things that would have made Galen's jaw drop.

10 People Who Give Atheism a Bad Name
Atheism has been around for thousands of years, and responsible for many philosophical and scientific developments. Like any movement, it has had its fair share of evil characters. As atheism has no moral precepts, outside of natural morality and ethics, it is hard to say how their atheism influenced their behavior or the particular political and similar movements they chose to follow. It seems that no matter what philosophy or religion people profess, people will always do wrong, whether or not in the name of their faith.

People like food. It fills you up, gives you a reason to leave your bed in the morning and tastes good… some of the time. For those other times, when the stuff you’re jamming into your greasy maw isn’t up to par but you’re determined to eat it anyway, there are condiments. Maybe you splash a half ton of ranch dressing on some crummy French fries or slather a diabetic coma-inducing level of ketchup your overdone burger.
