11 Reasons Why Weddings Are Dumb
There is a big difference between a wedding and a marriage. A marriage is what happens when two adults in a loving relationship pledge to torture each other until they're old and wrinkly. It's romantic, especially if you believe in "the one," which is the idea that there is one special person out there who will put up with your crap. But a wedding is something entirely different. There are millions of women and men who throw lavish, self-indulgent weddings and then wake up the morning after stuck in a marriage. A marriage is about commitment, patience and forgiving that person who steals all the covers for being a flawed human being. A wedding is a funeral that's not as entertaining. Weddings bring out the worst in both the bride and the groom. Women are fed a steady diet of bridal magazines from the moment they're knee-high, so when their special day to be a princess comes, they transform into demanding krakens in lace. Men traditionally dread getting married, so they surrender their will to live and drag their feet behind their rampaging fiancées. Then there's the event itself. Weddings in the movies are great because they usually last five minutes at the end of the flick. But in real life, they're just money for nothing.

But we’re also intrigued by the deliciously train-wreck-y possibility of what feels like a major casting misstep: Gossip Girl’s sunny, blithe Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, pilot and go-getter vice-president of a major aircraft company. During every preview we saw, the audience chortled at the sight of her, perhaps thinking of the many pilots and go-getter VPs they know whose predominant traits do not involve hair-flipping. While awaiting the verdict on Lively’s blockbuster debut, we’ve reminisced here about the miscastings that have most made us snicker over the years, for reasons cinematic, historic, and personal.

8 Skills Our Parents Had That We Don't
My love of baking has always made me feel geeky, a bit granny-ish. In recent years though, Generation Y’s cool kids have all started baking blogs. They also knit, crochet, and grow vegetables in community plots. I once met a very urban couple my age who proudly admitted to making their own cheese. Cheese! While twentysomethings are often painted as gadget-obsessed, we’re known as a nostalgic bunch too. These homebody hobbies are proof. Some babyboomer skills, however, aren’t trickling down through the generations. Below is a list of things our parents did: talents and hobbies that, however useful, have fallen out of fashion.
7 Myths About Caffeine
For many of us a morning without coffee or tea is a like the proverbial day without sunshine. For me much of it is about the ritual. Okay, who am I kidding? It’s about the caffeine. Mmm, I love caffeine–that naturally occurring alkaloid found in the leaves, seeds and fruits of more than 63 plant species worldwide. But at what risk do I indulge in my morning coffee and afternoon espresso? Caffeine is most famous for its role as a stimulant and it’s ability to delay fatigue.

Extensive studies into its safety show that there are still many misconceptions about caffeine. Allow me to tackle some of the myths surrounding my beloved alkaloid.

5 U.S. Presidents Who Hid Their Illnesses
If history shows us one thing, it’s that the people of the U.S. don’t exactly have a soft spot for an ill President.
