10 Most Dangerous College Degrees on Earth
When the time comes to choose a college major, students consider a variety of factors, including income potential, difficulty, and, indeed, their aptitude and interest in the course. What should probably also be a major concern, though, is how likely your degree is to put you at risk of accident, injury and death. In light of this, we bring you the world’s ten most dangerous college degrees.
13 Sexiest Conspiracy Women
Who said conspiracy theorists can't be sexy? Do we have to like them just for their brains, research skills and B.S.-free takes on what's really going on? Here are our lucky 13 women who have been subject to conspiracy theories or are part of the whole "believer" community. The one-time Playboy centerfold took center stage in the autism debate after claiming that her son had developed autism after being subjected to vaccine and inoculations. Adding fuel to the fire, she further claimed that she had cured her son's "illness" by using a controversial chelation therapy.
20 Memorable Quotes from Iconic African-Americans
Perhaps it’s easiest to think of Black History Month as just another moment to acknowledge that freedom isn’t free, like the Fourth of July or Memorial Day. When Martin Luther King Jr. stood at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963, and declared, “In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the ‘unalienable Rights’ of ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’ It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’ ”
Top 10 Films So Bad They Are Hilarious
Films are an art form. Even the earliest forms, starting with nickelodeons in the 18th century, were meant to elicit some kind of emotional response from their audience. This emotional response has to be specific, though. If a filmmaker made what they thought was a stirring emotional drama, but it ends up hitting none of its intended beats, then it is considered a failure. I think the word “failure” is completely subjective. Avatar is the highest grossing movie of all-time, meaning it was obviously successful, but I thought it was pretty lame. The highest praise that I can give any movie is that I was thoroughly entertained by it. I can love a movie like The Godfather, but only watch it maybe a couple of times in my life, but I’ve seen Big Trouble in Little China probably a hundred times, and it is only because I find it infinitely easier and more fun to watch. Even though a movie doesn’t do well at the box-office, or with critics, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have some kind of huge intrinsic value. Going as far as we can to that side of the spectrum, we reach a wonderful kind of movie genre, the so-bad-it’s-good variety. I’ll go one step further and say that these are movies that are so bad that they are just hilarious. Hilariously bad, but endlessly enjoyable. These are movies I can watch over and over again, preferably in a group of like-minded friends.
10 Fattiest Fast Foods of 2011
Choosing the 10 worst foods of the year is like shooting beer-battered deep-fried fish in a barrel of boiling oil. Everywhere you aim, you’re bound to hit one. This year, we scoped out a few fast food joints and a couple of America’s favorite sit-down restaurant chains. A number of popular restaurants (Cheesecake Factory, anyone?) do not post their nutritional values online. While most restaurants we researched do share info with consumer, not all are so open with the numbers. And that always raises a red flag for the diner looking to take control of his or her health. Some of the following “worst 10” are special meals that are rolled out “for a limited time only”; others are standard menu fare at some of our most-visited eateries.
The 7 Weirdest Parental Punishments
Sure, any parent can send the young'uns to their bedrooms for some time out, or suspend TV privileges when the little angels act more like imps. But when traditional punishments fail, some moms and dads find the need to get more creative. Embarrassment, shame and just plain oddness were on the agenda in the households of these poor kids. If these children are anything like most American youth, they would probably rather endure a year of grounding than the humiliation involved in some of these zany acts. In most cases, it isn't clear if these oddball sanctions were effective; but all of them are most certainly entertaining.
10 Positive Ways to Look at Unemployment
Last week, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released its monthly jobs report – announcing the lowest unemployment rate in the past two years. A deeper look at these numbers, however, showed that one of the main reasons for the drop to 8.6% unemployment (from over 9%) is that over 300,000 people left the work force and stopped looking for a job. This may sound disheartening, but there is always an upside – if you look hard enough. As Angel and Dorian discover in the entrepreneurial comedy Partners in Pretension, being out of work can be very challenging, but unemployment can lead to new opportunities and unexpected benefits. Are you unemployed and looking for that silver lining?
9 Famous Movies That Almost Didn’t Make It to the Big Screen
Most of us can think of at least a few movies that we wish hadn't made it into theaters: Gigli, Glitter, basically anything starring a pop singer. Some of the most well known films, however, almost didn't make it onto the movie reels across the country. They appear on critics' lists of top movies again and again, but their strengths were almost what kept them out of film history. Production problems normally involve clashing egos, burning through funding, and lots of unforeseen disasters. Luckily for us, these films somehow beat the odds, even if it was just barely.
25 Ways To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
“Carbon footprint” – It’s the latest buzz word being thrown around by everyone from politicians to college kids but what exactly is it? Well, roughly defined it’s the amount of green house gas emitted by a person or population over a certain period of time. To make a long story short, the more of these gasses that we let into the atmosphere, the worse it is for the environment. Before moving onto the list, however, we would like to point out that no matter what your stance is on global warming/climate change these ideas at least stand the chance of saving you money. Most of them don’t take that much effort and at the end of the month you may notice less coming out of your bank account to pay for utilities.
Top 10 Ways The Universe Can Kill Us All
Something we have no control over (yet) could wipe us all out in a matter of seconds with absolutely no warning. It could happen while you’re sleeping, or even while you’re reading this very article.
