10 Conspiracies About The Moon - But Not The Big One
Since Apollo 11 touched down on July 20, 1969, conspiracy theorists have loudly proclaimed that man never actually made it to the moon. Myths surrounding the landing have spread far and wide — but they aren't the only stories to come off the lunar surface. Here are ten other moon-based conspiracies.
10 Actual Mistakes that Syfy Has Made Over the Years
We expect a lot from Syfy, because it's the only cable channel devoted to science fiction. So it's inevitable that the network formerly known as the Sci-Fi Channel will disappoint us occasionally. And sometimes people blame Syfy unfairly - like when Syfy pulls the plug on a low-rated show. But at the same time, it's fair to say Syfy has made a few actual mistakes over the years. And in our opinion, here are 10 of them. People sometimes attack Syfy for doing stuff that actually makes sense, at least from a business standpoint. Like showing pro wrestling, which is actually a sort of fantasy in its own right, and which generates crazy ratings for the channel. Also, it's important to stop and realize that Syfy has done some stuff right - the Being Human remake is better than we could have hoped, and has brought in women viewers for the first time in ages. And Warehouse 13 and Alphas are continuing to rule. Plus we pretty much love the Saturday night original movies, zany monsters and all.

However, some of the villains from the most classic films were endearing in their own way and worthy of some love of their own.
21 Awesome Fast Food Items Not Available In America
Sure America has a lot of problems right now but at the end of the day, we can always hang our hat on knowing that we undoubtedly have the best and most disgustingly amazing fast food in the world, right? Wrong. There is a whole other stratosphere of fast food in other countries around the world and none of these delicious items are available and might not ever be available in America. If that isn't enough to finally get you off your ass and do something to change things in this country, I don't know what is. And if you're feeling a little too bloated because you just ate a Mexican Pizza/two tacos combo, a beef chalupa and a Nachos Supreme from Taco Bell to do anything about it right at this moment, that's completely understandable too.
25 Things We Forgot About Pop Culture in the 1980's
It's always the big things that we seem to remember. For every home run a major league baseball player hits, there are usually way more strikeouts to balance it out. But who remembers a hitter's strikeouts? Homers are where the fun is! That same logic can be applied to pretty much everything.

The 6 Most Dangerous Celebrity Chefs For Your Waistline
Fitness and health experts tout cooking at home as one way to reduce your calorie intake. After all, everyone knows that restaurant portions are often ridiculously large, and there's no way to know how much butter, oil, and cheese went into the mixing bowl. In theory that might work, but it depends on what's for dinner. Recipes you cook at home might still contain unhealthy amounts of saturated fat, which is linked to obesity, stroke, and heart disease. Saturated fat also might hit you in the pocketbook, as health insurance companies charge higher premiums to those who are overweight or sometimes deny coverage (an unhealthy height-weight ratio is often indicative of other medical conditions). The “Safeway Amendment,” a provision that increases the incentives insurance companies can pay healthy employees, is now federal law. Based on data from 2009, it could mean paying an extra $6,688 a year for an American family with average health benefits, depending on the outcome of blood tests and weigh-ins.
