13 Biggest Hip Hop Conspiracy Theories

However, fans note some of the songs make references to things that didn't exist before Tupac was killed, including a shout-out to the movie Armageddon.
13 NHL Careers Cut Short By Concussions
The 2011-12 NHL season is only a month away, but people who follow the league aren’t talking about Stanley Cup contenders and pretenders, hot prospects, or big trade buzz. Instead, everyone is talking about concussions, and whether the best hockey player in the world, Sidney Crosby, will even play this year. There are even some pundits who, quietly, are discussing the possibility that Sid the Kid may never play again. For hockey fans, that is a chilling thought. But Crosby isn’t the only concussed player whose career is in limbo. There is word out of Boston today from the Bruins’ general manager that the career long-suffering center Marc Savard is almost certainly over. Then there is the case of the Blues’ David Perron, who played only 10 games last season after being concussed on a hit by San Jose’s Joe Thornton. Like Sidney Crosby, Perron has been unable to even resume light workouts, let alone full-on hockey training.
30 MPG: Ten Fun Cars That Won’t Break The Bank At The Pump
Since we don’t think we’re ever going to see truly “cheap” gas again, we figure it’s high time to trade in that gas guzzler on something a little sportier. For the first time ever, we’ve been able to find 10 fun-to-drive cars that all net at least 30 mpg on the highway. Each of these offers truly impressive thrills for enthusiasts. Our list was a little longer until we started throwing out cars like the Kia Optima Turbo and the Buick Regal Turbo. Sure, they might pack decent power, but they’re just not the kind of cars that will draw attention at your neighborhood car show. They’re fun on a different kind of scale. Instead, we chose to concentrate on cars that will truly delight enthusiasts. Our criteria was simple: Each car had to net at least 30 mpg on the highway and each has to be genuinely fun to drive. We didn’t necessarily pick the most eco-friendly model in each lineup – we picked the ones we’d most want to enjoy on a closed course or on a winding country road.

20 Hilarious Twitter Parody Accounts
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, although anyone who’s been the subject of a Twitter parody account might not necessarily agree. Parody accounts on Twitter have targeted celebrities, politicians, brands and even entire countries. While some have been suspended, and others are coming under attack, there are still hundreds of thousands of people on Twitter who are more than happy to follow them for a dose of cynical and sarcastic humour. That said, some of them do push the envelope quite far, and aren’t necessarily going to appeal to everyone. If you’re easily offended, many of these accounts will definitely not appeal to you. If you’re thinking of putting together your own parody account, be sure to read Twitter’s guidelines first to make sure you’re not in violating of the site’s terms.
