9 Actresses Who Get By On Their Looks
When it comes to Hollywood, women are at an extreme disadvantage. Where as men can rely almost solely on their talent (Steve Buscemi rules!), a hot body is basically a prerequisite for landing a female role. And if an actress is lucky enough to break through, there’s a whole chorus of naysayers waiting to accuse her of being nothing more than an untalented pair of tits. While I totally recognize that it’s a twisted, hypocritical process, who am I to buck the trend? The following is a list of nine actresses who really do get by on their looks. Granted, if I could get by on my looks, I totally would, so it’s not as if I blame them. Also, in all fairness, some of these actresses are probably the victim of typecasting. Of course, being typecast as “the hot chick” isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it certainly doesn’t allow them to show of their range (if they have any). That being said, here are nine actresses who get by on their looks.
10 Flying Cars That Are Just Around the Corner
When people talk about the future, there are probably three things that they consider to be truly futuristic: cures for all diseases (to make sex risk free), virtual reality (to make sex effortless) and flying cars (to make sex more awesome). In terms of the latter, the possibility of quick, easy and faster flight would revolutionize cities and our lives as a whole the way automobiles did in the last 100 years. We’ve been working on the idea since before the Wright brothers had their 12 second money shot in 1903, but judging by the current offerings, it might be a little while longer before we get there.
12 Cutest Geckos on Earth
We all know the Geico gecko, who may be the cutest of all, but how much do we really know about the species and the real cuties in it? First a few general facts and then a countdown of the 12 cutest! Geckos owe their wide-eyed look to having no eyelids; instead they have a transparent membrane that they lick clean. Many of them have a couple of defense systems like expelling a foul-smelling mixture of feces and other material, and many can also drop their tail when it is caught. Geckos come in a multitude of colors and patterns as well.
The 40 Sexiest Celebrities over 40
With the new season of television shows now underway I thought I would pay tribute to a show that has somehow managed to make it through its first season and still be on for a second year (no small accomplishment these days). And that show is Cougar Town. Cougar Town is a TV series based on a divorced woman who is faced with a dating scene filled with younger men (thus her being considered a “cougar”). It stars, as many of you know, Courteney Cox (good casting – minus the divorced part). But enough about the show. What I aim to focus on is another, better version of Cougar Town. My “Cougar Town” is filled with sexy celebrities over the age of 40, regardless of marital status.

5 Inventions You Won't Believe Came From War
If there's one thing that everyone can agree on, it's that war is horrible. Nothing kills the mood faster than a bloody, painful death for a political agenda that you probably don't even fully understand.

6 Things We Love to Hate About Apple
We have been known to dish out a fair amount of trash-talk in the past. Some directed at the Android platform, Droid commercials, some at Sony's new PSP campaign and most recently, a post critical of the Galaxy Tab. Apple isn't free from our criticism either. We feel criticism is needed where it's due. It's true that we tend to enjoy our Apple products, but that's just a personal choice. They aren't without their flaws or major annoyances. Today, we are going to tell ya about our beefs with Apple.
