Top 10 Legal Addictions
In the Eighties, Nancy Reagan led a militant campaign to do away with drugs, from the backs of schoolyards to the cartels of Columbia. However, when her husband ultimately succumbed to Alzheimerís, you didnít see her telling him to ďjust say NOĒ to his medication. Thereís a clear double-standard on how drugs are handled in this country, but there seems to be one unifying principle: if the government can somehow make a profit, itís a-okay as far as the law goes. Nonetheless, substance abuse and addiction rages at full force on both sides of the law, and feigning an injury is a much less risky way to acquire an opiate than to cross the border and smuggle a plastic-wrapped portion of suspicious black goop.

The 13 Greatest Lip Syncing Fails
Lip syncing is what you do when you're more famous than talented. These are videos of celebrities, famous singers and "artists" being caught lip syncing at the worst possible times. Technology is both a blessing and a curse for the music industry. On one hand, it has made it easier for people without money for studio time to create music out of their bedroom. Unfortunately there is also a dark side to it with the auto-tuning and even worse, lip syncing. Lip syncing is when an artist, for whatever reason decides that they cannot actually sing in front of the audience that has come and paid for them to do just that, so they have a backing track play during the performance and they just mouth along to it, just like you do in your car -- only with dancing. Now, there are some cases where lip syncing could be acceptable. First, if you are making a music video since there is no way to perform live and have it turn out sounding good.
