Top 10 Sex Symbols of the 50s & 60s
In popular culture a “sex symbol” is a person that is admired for their sex appeal. Most of these individuals are famous actors, musicians, or models that have an extensive media following. During the 1950s and 60s a generation of people began to question and challenge the traditionally accepted cultural norms. The relatively conservative ideals that were formed around international war and population growth were beginning to evolve. During this time in history the foundation for rock and roll music was formed, racial segregation was an issue, and the strict laws around sexual expression were being challenged. For this reason, the people that emerged as sex symbols during this era were extremely influential and important to popular culture.
Top 10 Action Babes
While it’s great to watch Jason Statham kicking ass in The Transporter or Jet Li flipping around in Hero, Hollywood film producers truly outdid themselves when they introduced hot babes kicking action ass. This way, men get to combine two of their favorite things in one: violence and sex. We’re not sure if we want them to protect us or ravage us. Early vixens like Lynda Carter in Wonder Woman paved the way for Sigourney Weaver to fry facehuggers in Aliens and Linda Hamilton to kill Arnold in Terminator. Now the female action star is a staple in our culture, and we expect at least a few libido-popping action flicks each year. Here are our favorite starlets who have amassed impressive action resumes as well as incredible bodies. If we had our druthers, they would all stop doing “serious” roles and just focus on killing bad guys.

10 Reasons Not to Buy a Puppy From a Pet Store
Most dog lovers know about the often horrid conditions of puppy mills, the unregulated breeding facilities owned by disreputable breeders. Dogs are often bred far too frequently, are kept cramped together in squalor, and are not socialized with humans. In addition, these breeders do not always care about the health and strength of the breed, which often results in genetic illnesses, poor health in general and unlikable personality traits. But many of these same dog aficionados, who have t-shirts and bumper stickers denouncing puppy mills, don't know that most puppies sold at pet stores come from there. There are some pet stores that buy their puppies from commercial kennels regulated by the Department of Agriculture. However, even these pups tend to be unhealthy and unsocialized. This is partly due to the fact that commercial kennels tend to breed many different breeds in one facility and they breed for quantity, not quality. Therefore, their interest does not lie in the healthy promotion of a certain breed but rather in how many sales they can get.
10 Reasons Why the PC Is Here to Stay
The PC as you know it is obsolete. So sayeth Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who took the stage at the Wall Street Journal's D8 conference in June to talk about what he sees as the coming "post-PC era." "When we were an agrarian nation, all cars were trucks," Jobs explained. "But as people moved more toward urban centers, people started to get into cars. I think PCs are going to be like trucks. Less people will need them." What they will want instead, according to Jobs, are iPads -- and devices like them -- which do away with traditional desktop PC metaphors in favor of more intuitive, touch-based experiences.

7 Stupid Computing Problems We Will Apparently Never Fix
Sure, there are problems in computer science which are inherently difficult to solve and may never be solved even by our top engineers and professors. We’re not talking about those. We’re talking about stuff we know how to solve, stuff that doesn’t even count as needing “solving”, and we just keep being stupid about them anyway.
