Five Things You Should Know About Before Shacking Up With a Vegetarian
Vegetarianism is running rampant these days. And if you're a lady who goes for the kind of guy who writes songs, wears TOMS shoes and has grown a beard at some point in the last two years, you've most likely slept with, dated or cohabited with a vegetarian. In the past three years of being a single (omnivorous) woman and then finally landing THE relationship, I had romantic encounters of varying degrees with four (count 'em) vegetari-men. And now I shall share my wisdom with you in this non-gender specific list outlining the perils and pitfalls of falling in love with a vegetarian. (You're welcome).
Top 10 Worst Comic Book Movies of the Decade
By now you will have seen that The Dark Knight was IGN's favourite movie of the decade. Christopher Nolan's ace Batman adaptation showed that - in the right hands - the world of comics can be the inspiration for breathtaking and grown-up cinema. However, it's also fair to say that whilst the genre may have produced one of the best films in the last 10 years, it has also spawned many of worst. The noughties have seen some truly horrible comic book adaptations unleashed onto the undeserving movie-going public. Here is our purely subjective list of the ones we disliked the most. Feel free to chime in below with your own suggestions.
7 Mad Science Experiments You Can Do At Home But Probably Shouldn't
By the time you finish reading this article, you will undoubtedly think of Theo Gray when you hear someone say "mad scientist." Theo, a columnist for the magazine Popular Science, recently published a book titled Theo Gray’s Mad Science: Experiments You Can Do At Home – But Probably Shouldn’t. The book is full of experiments so outrageous (Ignite your own phosphorus sun in a globe filled with pure oxygen! Make your own shotgun ammo by pouring molten lead off the roof! Heat a hot tub with 500 pounds of quicklime!) that it sounds like a parent’s nightmare. It’s actually quite the opposite: there’s no a better way to spark the imagination of the young minds of proto-scientists than to bring science to life with Theo’s hands-on experiments. Yes, these are dangerous experiments but that’s why they’re so much fun!
The World's 18 Strangest Airports
Engineers tasked with building an airport are faced with countless challenges: The ideal location needs ample space, endless flat ground, favorable winds and great visibility. But spots in the real world are rarely ideal, and engineers are forced to work with what they have, making sure that the end product is the safest possible structure for pilots. A survey of airports around the world turns up a mixed bag, ranging from dangerous and rugged landing strips to mega-size facilities that operate like small cities. Here, PM explores the world's most remarkable airports and why they stand out.

5 Most Notorious Recalls of All Time
There's a great temptation to rate the severity of vehicle recalls in terms of magnitude. But recalling 5 million vehicles for something minor may be nowhere near as devastating to a manufacturer as recalling a half million for something that is truly dangerous. And then there are cars that suffer only one recall while others seem to be recalled every week or so. Recalls simply aren't created equal.
10 Ridiculous Lady Laws That Are Still On The Books
Even though Paris is the fashion capitol of the world, it is still technically against the law for a woman to wear pants there. Someone should tell the police quick … they could have made a killing during Fashion Week. But seriously, how crazy is that? This ridiculous law has survived years of attempted upheaval. In 1892, the law was amended to say that trousers were permitted “as long as the woman is holding the reins of a horse.” In 1909, female cyclists were declared exempt. After a couple more attempts over the ages, I guess the ladies (and police) forgot the law even existed and went right on ahead breaking it by proudly rocking their pants. That got me thinking. What other crazy kinds of laws are there that we don’t even know about? Wait for this one. I discovered that here in New York a woman can incur $25 fine for flirting! Oops … I broke that law like a million times. After the jump, some more archaic lady laws that need to be repealed pronto.
10 Sleep Mistakes and Their Solutions
Although we may not like to admit it, many of the sleep problems we experience are the result of bad habits and behaviors. We stay up late or sleep in late. We eat foods that disagree with us or enjoy a drink late at night, oblivious to their disruptive impact on our sleep rhythms. Over time, we teach our bodies not to sleep. For relief, we often turn to sleeping pills, which mask, rather than solve, the problem and can lead to addiction. Ultimately for real success, with insomnia as with any chronic problem, one must look for the underlying imbalances and root causes and address those.
The 20 Sexiest Ugly People
Beauty maybe, but sexiness is definitely in the eye of the beholder. And while beautiful people get sexiness for free (usually, anyway — check back soon for some exceptions), ugly people have to work for it. If you're plump, craggy, acne-scarred and irresistable, you've earned the hearts fluttering in your wake. We've laboriously assembled this list of definitively ugly people (physically ugly, anyway — they're beautiful on the inside, we're sure), and we're telling you we want to sample their goods. We're admitting that, look, the following people are not pretty, but that wouldn't stop us. We're going out on a limb here, people. Here are the twenty sexiest ugly people alive.
