10 Great Moments in Liam Neeson Badassery
Liam Neeson is a talented, Oscar-winning actor, so it may be tempting to believe, just because he relentlessly dominates the weak and foolish in cinema, that he is not actually a true badass in real life. But don't you believe it. Did you know that, before becoming a professional actor, Neeson was an amateur boxer, and operated a forklift at the Guinness brewery? And that he hand-raised an entire wolfpack single-handedly and trained them to become his personal army of the night? Also, that I probably made that last one up?
10 Fear Responses That Make No Sense, And Why We Have Them
Nature, we are told, equipped us with all sorts of instincts to help us survive. However, most of them just get us into trouble. Especially the fear response ones. It's true that we live in a very different world than the primates who evolved these responses, but often what we do when we're afraid doesn't seem to make sense even in nature. Let's take a look at why we're cursed with some lousy responses to everyday scares.
Top 10 Legendary Onscreen Meltdowns
Melting-down doesn't seem that challenging of a scene for an actor. You'd think all they have to do is flash some crazy eyes and scream like a madman. That couldn't be further from the truth. A lesser actor just stumbles into cliche theatrics and comes off as cartoonish. The performance is neither believable nor funny -- just an awkward example of a man forcing himself to yell. For a truly legendary onscreen meltdown, it takes an actor with some capacity for actual insanity. Whether conscious of it or not, those performers tap into that crazy and unleash the brilliance of losing control. Crazy eyes cannot be faked. Great onscreen crazy eyes come from actors who were just one bad break away from being a nutty subway hobo. Oddly enough, that makes the 10 following actors true geniuses. They're able to compartmentalize their lunacy, use it for our enjoyment and still be productive members of society. These scenes are their greatest insane moments.
20 Amazing Facts About Rhinos
Rhinos are critically endangered animals that look like they haven't changed much since prehistoric times (though of course they tended to be a lot woollier back then!). Although poached nearly to extinction, conservation efforts and habitat protection are starting to make a small difference to the fate of these magnificent animals. Let's take a look at some cool facts about them.
Crystal Harris and the 17 Known Girlfriends of Hugh Hefner
Hugh Hefner, the man who inspired thousands of women across the country to get Playboy bunny tramp stamps, announced via Twitter on Christmas Day that he’s officially engaged to his one true love, Crystal Harris. In honor of his commitment to Crystal (and his obvious commitment to Viagra), we’ve rounded up the hottest pictures of all his known girlfriends. And while we’re sure Hugh’s had many more girlfriends in his 84 years, we’re absolutely convinced that these 17 are the sexiest.
The 10 Most Notoriously Difficult Languages to Learn
Labeling a language "difficult" carries with it both a high degree of subjectivity as well as some rather unfortunate implications regarding cultural relativity and suppression. In truth, everything hinges on how much time and effort a student puts into her or his language acquisition — not to mention the relation (or, as it were, lack thereof) between their mother tongue and the newcomer in many cases. They’re all equally hard if slacking is the name of the game and equally easy if one possesses enough tenacity, so try not to take this list as anything even one iota formal or definitive.
20 Epic Shakespeare Insults Every Drama Geek Should Know
Few have ever matched the epic power and grace of the insult like Shakespeare.

10 Ways for Teachers & Students to Build Websites
The lines between blogging platforms, website platforms, and wiki platforms are not always clear. I have a somewhat simplistic explanation that I give to teachers who don't have a web presence yet, but want to create one for their professional work. Here's the explanation: websites are good for providing a static resource of information, blogs are good for frequent updates and communication, and a wiki is great for collaborating on the creation of a reference site. For the teacher who wants to create a website, here are ten good platforms to try.
10 Tips to Mend a Broken Heart
Bess Myerson once wrote that “to fall in love is awfully simple, but to fall out of love is simply awful.” Especially if you are the one who wanted the relationship to last. Mending a broken heart is never easy. There is no quick way to stop your heart from hurting so much. To stop loving isn’t an option. Author Henri Nouwen writes, “When those you love deeply reject you, leave you, or die, your heart will be broken. But that should not hold you back from loving deeply. The pain that comes from deep love makes your love ever more fruitful.” But how do we get beyond the pain? Here are 10 tips I’ve gathered from experts and from conversations with friends on how they patched up their heart and tried, ever so gradually, to move on.

I sent out an email blast to my friends and family asking them for all their best tips on ways to save money. I got back lots of great responses which I have culled down to 43.
