5 Beers No Man Should Drink After 25
You had your fun in college. Now it’s time to stop drinking crappy beers. Pour yourself a good micro brew from Vermont or Colorado and take a few lessons here. If you’re 25 or older and drink any of the following beers, you’re simply stuck in the past. You’re one of those hangers-on. All your friends are talking behind your back and speculating about when you’ll get a job and get on with your life. Some are even placing bets. It may also help if you stop crashing on the couch of the fraternity house and get a real apartment, you deadbeat.
10 Deadliest Snipers of World War II
The highly skilled sharpshooters known as snipers (a term that originated in British India to describe hunters able to pick off the elusive “snipe” bird) became vitally important during the Second World War. Fighting on the Eastern Front, the Soviets, in particular, were expert marksmen — and noticeably dominate the following list. The Soviet Union was the only country that had expressly trained sniper units in the decade leading up to the World War Two, and their superiority (with the obvious exception of the top-ranked sniper on this list) is clearly displayed by the numbers beside the names of its marksmen. Expert sharpshooters such as Vasily Zaytsev — who reputedly killed 225 soldiers during the Battle of Stalingrad — proved beyond all doubt their immense value to their military forces during the war. In the aftermath, their importance was never to be underestimated.
12 Things You May Not Know About Certified Badass Liam Neeson
Ask a stranger to do an impression of Liam Neeson and they’ll likely take on a grave intensity before telling you that if you don’t let their daughter go, they will look for you, they will find you, and they will kill you. It’s no surprise your new friend’s go-to line is the respective iconic scene from “Taken,” the film that solidified Neeson’s persona as a leading action star. In a nod to the wildly successful film, KoldCast TV’s action-packed, seat-of-your-pants series “The Division” features Andrew Bowen playing the role of Nick Trever, a personal protection professional whose son is kidnapped shortly after his wife dies. In order to save his son, Trever must kidnap a U.S. Senator. True fans know “Taken” was but the pinnacle of Liam Neeson’s longtime calling as a leading man’s man. In honor of our favorite Irish actor’s burgeoning career as an action hero, here are 12 lesser-known reasons why the star is a certified badass, both on and off the screen.
10 Crappy TV Shows Based On Good Movies
When a TV series spawns a movie, it's tough to predict how the film will turn out. It can be great ("The Fugitive"), awful ("Land of the Lost"...OK, that one was predictable) or middling ("The Simpsons"). But whenever the process works in reverse, with a movie inspiring a TV show, it always seems to result in a terrible product. A few notable exceptions include "M*A*S*H" and "Friday Night Lights." Oh, and "Teen Wolf," our corporate overlords are reminding us. Right now we're in a glut of movie-inspired series, thanks to "The Firm," the animated "Napoleon Dynamite" and the upcoming "Goodfellas" series. Good for advertisers, bad for viewers. If only they'd heeded the warnings set by these 10 crappy shows that were based on great movies.
20 Common Grammar Mistakes That Almost Everyone Makes
I’ve edited a monthly magazine for more than six years, and it’s a job that’s come with more frustration than reward. If there’s one thing I am grateful for — and it sure isn’t the pay — it’s that my work has allowed endless time to hone my craft to Louis Skolnick levels of grammar geekery. As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes. But experience has also taught me that readers, for better or worse, will approach your work with a jaundiced eye and an itch to judge. While your grammar shouldn’t be a reflection of your creative powers or writing abilities, let’s face it — it usually is.
9 Actors Besides Steve Carell Who Walked Away From Popular T.V. Shows
After seven seasons, comedian Steve Carell has decided to walk away from the highly popular show. What an asshole. Just kidding... sort of... I admire him leaving before the quality drops any further, but part of me really wants to see him run that thing into the ground, “Simpsons” style. Either way, he’s not the first to prematurely say adios to a role. Some of TV’s most popular shows have had actors walk away while the ratings were still high.
25 Most Ridiculous Quotes from the Republican Debates
As the Republican party gets ready to begin the process of selecting its contender for the 2012 presidential election, we here at List25 took a moment to reflect over the past year of political debates and forums.

10 Ad Campaigns That Backfired Badly
Occasionally advertising executives fail to hit the mark; a joke that passed at the focus group stage ends up flatlining when it hits the TV screen or billboard space. However, sometimes we’re cursed, or perhaps even blessed, with beholding the moments when adverts truly backfire, spinning off ungraciously into the land of ironic failure. Here is a collation of the top ten most cringe-worthy, backfiring ads.
My 10 Favorite Tracks from Video Game Soundtracks
My friends all laugh at me, because whenever I drive anywhere, the first song playing from my iPod is generally from a video game or movie soundtrack. I’m a product of my environment, and my musical tastes are heavily influenced by movies, trailers, tv shows and games, and as such I have “terrible” taste in music according to everyone else. So be it. But I think there are some damn good tracks out there, particularly on video game soundtracks. You might not notice them as you’re playing, but if you do, chances are they’re pretty damn good to distract you from your task at hand. These ten tracks I’ve been listening to long after I put down the controller. See if my terrible musical tastes might actually match your own with a few of these.

When you think of "flashing" you probably think of some guy running naked across a sports field, or opening up a trench coat, maybe giving a wiggle and running away.
