Fact: you don’t need to break the law to get high. Mother Nature gave us so many “stimulating” plants, that it’s virtually impossible to outlaw them all. If you like losing reality every once in a while, here are 10 natural substances that will send you to the moon and not the jail cell.
10 Cars That Got Better With Age
Sometimes, bad cars are like wine — they need a few years of aging to become something usable. Here's your choices for ten cars that improved with a little distilling. The Escort promised the sportiness of a well-sorted European compact but delivered the underwhelming performance of a 68-hp engine in a car seemingly cobbled together from whatever parts Ford had lying around. The Escort was a "world car" in the worst sense — as almost always happens, the rest of the world got a better version. Those changes eventually trickled down to our showrooms.

10 Brands That Will Disappear In 2011
24/7 Wall St. regularly compiles a report of brands that are likely to disappear in the near-term. Last April, and again in December, we published our findings. Usually, it would take a full year before such a list could be compiled again. However, the current economic climate has accelerated this process and a majority of the brands on the first two lists are either gone, have been acquired, or have filed for bankruptcy. Last April, 24/7 Wall St. identified twelve brands that our analysis showed would disappear, including Saturn, Borders, Palm, AIG and Eddie Bauer. We also accurately identified brands that would disappear in our December list. With a number of the brands on the December list either gone or on a short-term path to extinction, 24/7 Wall St. has put together the latest version of the Ten Brands that Will Disappear. To qualify, we expect that brand to be gone by the end of 2011, or for its parent to be sold or go into Chapter 11.
The Top 21 Most Thrilling Movie Cars Of All Time
The people behind the new Mazda Thrillseekers campaign have asked us for suggestions on the most awesome cars ever seen in the movies, and after a heated debate in Hecklerspray Towers we think we’ve come up with the ultimate list to please movie lovers and motorheads alike. Having a thrilling movie car can make even the worst films great. It could have the worst script and acting in the world, but stick four wheels on it, an engine so powerful it can move you to tears and a nice paint job and you could be sitting on the next Citizen Kane. That’s because everyone likes cars. They steal the show. Just think of all the films that could have been saved by simply putting a good car in them. Would Waterworld have sucked so badly if they had made it so the earth was covered in tarmac rather than water?

8 Obscure Yet Totally Awesome British Shows
Ahh, the British. They've given us so many things, from the unnecessary 'u' in colour to the giggle-inducing desert treat known as the Spotted Dick. More than that though, our friends in England have enriched our pop culture landscape with countless TV shows: Doctor Who, The Avengers, The Prisoner, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Fawlty Towers, Red Dwarf, Spaced, The Office, Black Books and that soap opera with the trashy people in Albert Square amongst them. All of these programs have gained a sizable audience on these shores thanks to Region 1 DVD releases and/or airings on PBS and BBC America. Still, thanks to factors ranging from esoteric subject matter to good old-fashioned obscurity there remain plenty of superb British shows that haven't gotten much love from folks here in these United States. For the most part, the entries on this list don't have the luxury of having ravenous cult followings.
The 30 Funniest Police Blotters Of All Time
No matter how hard we try to improve as a society, the sad fact is that nothing will ever change because the world is overrun with morons.

5 Obsessive Fanboys Who Changed the World
Sir Isaac Newton remarked to a contemporary that his genius was in part because of the work of others. “If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants” he wrote. Ask any famous person, and they’ll humbly cite their influences from the past, except for Kanye West.
