12 of the Most Scenic Train Rides in the World
Train travel has seen a resurgence in popularity over recent years, and for good reason. Not only is it eco-friendly and often cheaper than flying, but train travel provides a perfect way to traverse a country at a relaxed pace, with ample time to soak up the atmosphere, admire the views and chat up the locals along the way. Whether you prefer to travel in deluxe, 5-star cabins or crammed into a rickety carriage with every man and his goat, there’s a railway journey to suit everyone. From trundling through canyons to an opulent safari-on-wheels or winding down snow-drenched mountains, these are 12 of the world’s most scenic train journeys to fuel your wanderlust.
10 Biggest Barack Obama Conspiracy Theories
Is Barack Hussein Obama the victim of unfair personal attacks or has he brought it on himself? Conservative media outlets — and lately, even liberal ones — are so desperate to attack him, they have resorted to posting satirical Onion articles as fact, including one about a "frustrated Obama [sending] a 75,000 word email" to the entire nation. Today, we break down all the hype. And while we couldn't fit every big conspiracy theory about Obama here — re-education camps, gay sex and cocaine in a limo, his "relation" to Saddham Hussein -- these are the biggest... and the ones that will dog Obama right up to the day he leaves office.

Unroastable Celebrities: 9 People Who Should Never Be Roasted
With the much-publicized Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen upon us, we keep wondering how much nobility is involved in roasting one of the most loathed pop culture figures in recent memory. How satisfying could it really be to take shots at a train wreck of a celebrity known for drugs, domestic abuse and general instability? Making fun of Charlie Sheen is like shooting fish in a barrel, if the fish was kicked off his high-rated TV show for having a public meltdown, and then that fish was replaced by Ashton Kutcher -- ouch. Most other celebrities given the roast treatment fall into the same category: walking punchlines known mostly for outrageous behavior that's easy to make fun of. But we'd love to see a roast of a beloved celebrity that even the likes of Jeffrey Ross and Lisa Lampanelli would have a tough time lampooning.

Top 10 Lists That Nobody Should Write Anymore

With thousands of blogs, articles, columns, and message board threads devoted to listing everything under the sun, you need to find a topic that will stand out in the crowd. Objective or not, funny or not, the point is to be intriguing and original. In short, don’t write any of the following. Just, don’t.
