Top 10 Most Dangerous Terrorist Threats
Democratic societies offer freedoms and liberties that are sometimes taken for granted. Citizens are able to speak their minds without fears of repercussions, have relatively open access to information, and go about their daily businesses without an invasion of privacy. However these freedoms come at a price; namely that nefarious individuals acting within these democracies can prey on the system’s vulnerabilities. Democratic societies are becoming increasingly complex machines with many intricate moving parts. These same machines can be brought to a standstill if someone throws a monkey wrench into its exposed structure. This list by no means is an attempt to support acts of terror, or to give a knock against democracy. Its purpose is to explore the most pressing terrorists threats democracies face, and perhaps engage in a discussion on where the line stands between freedom and security.

Fox a superstar and spawned two sequels that were also huge box office successes.

Fox Foundation and Team Fox charities for Parkinson's Disease research.

The Top 7 Unintentionally Homoerotic Action Movies
Let's face it, there are about two substantial reason why men love to go see action and buddy films. We like watching dudes bust each others balls, and we like to watch things get blowed up real good. That's about the extent of it. However, sometimes we get more than we bargained for, and suddenly we're watching two highly trained fighter pilots squaring off against each wearing nothing but towels in a locker room filled with big, sweaty men. And for the most part, we have to assume that the sudden sexual tension is not quite what the director was going for.

On first glance, it seems like married men might be a dying breed. According to Time magazine, more and more American men are deciding that the whole thing just isn't for them. Commercials, movies and sitcoms frequently represent married men as bumbling screw-ups, suffering under the judgmental eye of their all-knowing wives. Every day, married guys are told that they've given up their freedom or that they've been emasculated. But you know what? Married men don't mind all the ribbing. They can take the jokes from the media, and from all of their immature, misogynistic friends. They can handle it all because, in truth, they know they have it way better than the single guys do.

In fact, we’ll bet that most of you, if interrogated privately away from your binge-drinking bachelor buddies, wouldn't hesitate to admit that deep down you hope to get married someday.
