8 Completely Badass Veterans Youíve Never Heard Of

Veterans Day can be a slippery holiday. Unlike Memorial Day, which gets a barbecue-filled three-day weekend to kick off summer, Veterans Day often falls in the middle of the week, isolated by days of work and crummy November weather. As a veteran myself, Iím often unsure what to do with the day. Call old friends and reminisce? Go to a parade? Drink a bottle of Thunderbird and cry? None of it feels appropriate, and so I end up volunteering for some kind of veterans service, because Iím pure of heart and my soul is filled with the warmth of a thousand golden retriever puppies. But YOU shouldnít have to waste your Veterans Day listening to old people talk about gooks and krauts. Youíre busy, which is why youíre wasting time on the Internet in hopes of reading stories about American servicemen wrecking chunks of foreign countries and taking lives in the defense of the Constitution, freedom, and apple pie.

7 Times When It's Okay To Dumpster Dive

Back in our salad days, my husband and I outfitted much of our New Orleans apartment with dumpster dive goodies. We found our coffee table in the trash behind a defunct Japanese restaurant. Some serious sanding removed the cigarette burns and -- presto! -- we had a unique centerpiece for our living room. We next culled a wrought-iron headboard from the flea market dumpster. It's pre-antiqued look was ideal for our French Quarter home. Soon our walls were covered with posters, tapestries and hand-woven rugs rescued from other trash bins. All these finds, not to mention many an unusual nick and knack, gave our slave-quarters apartment a unique flair for nearly nothing. We were just kids, justifiably proud of our dumpster dive finds. Many years later, however, I still find it difficult to pass a well-stuffed trash barrel without peeking in, particularly during the spring days when students in our college town are trashing unwanted belongings. Old habits die hard. Besides, there's something criminal about sending perfectly good consumer goods to our overflowing landfill.

The 10 Most Effective Horror Movie Killers

Horror movie villains love to kill people. Actually, that's a bit of an understatement. These guys enjoy murder as much as Grant Morrison enjoys causing readers to shoot blood out of their ears in confusion. Movie after movie, young, usually extremely sexually active teens practically line up to die in the most awesome and gruesome ways possible, whether by a heart-slicing stab from a machete or by a large object plowing through their innards like a fist through Jell-O. And from the safety of our couches or from sticky-floored movie theaters, we the audience get our own personal thrill from criticizing the seemingly mentally challenged victims of the kill-happy psycho as they fail at every possible decision in their attempt to escape their inevitable fate.

The 5 Most Shocking Celebrity Twitter Feeds

You probably can't remember back this far, but before Twitter, celebrities were for the most part like demigods -- infallible, brilliant, perfect in every way. Of course, we saw the occasional coke-fueled meltdown, but otherwise everything a celebrity said was carefully filtered through a publicist or a softball nonquestion from Mary Hart. Twitter changed the game. For the first time in the history of ever, we have a one-way ferry boat ride into the inner thoughts of living celebrities, as they think them.

Top 10 Most Evil Humans

As we approach the new year, I thought it would be appropriate to do a list that combines and ranks entries from a combination of related lists Ė a summary list. This list looks at the last three years of lists of evil men and women, and combines and ranks the worst of the worst. Children are excluded as the evil children donít rank anywhere near the evil of adults seen in the past. I have also added one entry who has not appeared on other lists, but is definitely worthy of inclusion. If you disagree with my ranking (as no doubt many will) be sure to tell us in the comments Ė perhaps include your own ranking, too. Also, tell us if you think someone else should be on the list.
