Rock's Top 5 Religious Conversions
?Rocks Off understands the need for a good detox now and then, as most of our evening antics often leave us feeling less than bright-eyed and bushy-tailed come morning. We also imagine the damage inflicted by lifetime of hard partying and endless touring in the company of morally compromised music-industry execs and other unsavory characters would be considerably harder to erase. Certain circumstances might even require a soul-cleanse. Perhaps that's why so many musicians take solace in a higher power, seeking some sort of absolution for the sins of stardom. Five of the most memorable faith-swapping artists are listed below.
15 Crazy Superstitions People Used To Believe
Back in the old days (you know, the 1990s), science, medicine and technology were in their infancy and most people had no explanation for why bad things happened. Their ignorance made it easier for outrageous rumors and secondhand information to take hold of the community psyche, and caused them to seek solutions in bizarre everyday practices to try to prevent death, or to bring luck and good fortune. To hear these old wives' tales, most women in olden days were probably witches. Luckily, many of these WTF-worthy old superstitions have passed into the history books — but there might be a few you (or your great-grandmothers) still believe.

10 Frightening Facts About Child Obesity
There's really no questioning it: childhood obesity is a problem. Many have labeled it as an epidemic. In the past, the term “obesity” has only been associated with adults, but this idea has changed, as cases of child obesity are increasing every day. Studies show that childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years — The Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that obesity among children from the ages of 6 to 11 years has increased from 6.5% in 1980 to 19.8% in 2008, and that obesity among adolescents from the ages of 12 to 19 years increased from 5% in 1980 to 18.1% in 2008 (and these statistics are now 3 years old). More often than not, obesity is the result of a flawed lifestyle, where the number of calories consumed far outweighs the number of calories expended. Although genetics can be a factor, it is more and more common now for children to be obese or overweight because of environmental and behavioral factors. With nearly 25 million children affected by it today, the bottom line is that obesity is a threat to our children.

A good way to tell how big a role a given city plays in a TV show is to imagine the story taking place somewhere else; if the move seems impossible or even just weird, or if it would fundamentally change the nature of the stories, chances are the show is one that was totally married to its location. Some of the cities aren’t even real, but they’re still woven into the identity of their series
Top 10 Reasons Why Robocop Is Awesome
There are few action movies that actually have a message, point, or any subtext whatsoever. The average action movie usually just has a hero fighting a bad guy, with some explosions, or if you are Michael Bay thousands of explosions, and getting the girl in the end after stopping the big bad. In the 80s these were a dime a dozen and no one was really rocking the boat for the genre. This all changed when Robocop was released in 1987. For the uninitiated, Robocop is the story of Alex Murphy, newly transferred cop to Old Detroit. He is killed by some criminals, however OCP, the large corporation that just purchased the police in Detroit is experimenting on new technology in law enforcement. They take Murphy’s body and rebuild him as Robocop. Murphy becomes a hero, avenges his killer, and the day is won for justice.
