15 Reasons Why The US Presidency is the Dumbest Job in the World
To become the President of the United States of America, you have to shake a lot of hands, kiss a number of frequently unattractive babies, and generally subject yourself and everyone you care about to huge amounts of humiliation. It seems reasonable to ask, "Is it worth it?" Here are 15 reasons it decidedly is not.
6 Underappreciated Comedies More People Need To See
Humor can be very polarizing, because what one person finds funny, another person may deem incredibly offensive (looking at you South Park). Or what one person finds hilarious, another person could think is juvenile (looking at you Tim and Eric). Funny tends to mean different things to different people, so when you recommend a comedy to most people, you’re taking a gamble. That being said, I am taking a HUGE gamble here, but these are five films that I found incredibly funny, that either not enough people know about or not enough people like. Let’s change that, dammit.
The Top 10 Weird and Bizarre Chinese Soft Drinks

The 10 Most Shameless Product Placements in Movie History
We understand why movies have product placement. How are studios supposed to make money? You know, other than from ticket sales and DVDs. And merchandising. The point is, if they have to show a Pepsi label now and then so Will Smith can keep the heat on in his home, we're fine with that. But don't rewrite the damned movie to work the product into the plot.
The 10 Biggest Book Deals of All Time
Aspiring authors must cringe every time news of a seven-figure book deal hits the news. With print media in dire straits financially, publishers are after the safe bet. They’re willing to cough up millions for the memoirs of a famous public figure or the latest novel from an established literary superstar who they know will sell a million copies, but that means there’s that much less advance money to go around. Nevertheless, huge book deals make the news often enough to keep starry-eyed writers dreaming of that life-changing payday. Here are 10 lucky recipients of the biggest book advances ever reported.
The 8 Most Uncomfortable Montages
A montage, for those who don't know, is a filmmaking technique where a director takes a medley of disparate scenes and connects them together quickly, usually under the cover of music. Some montages can be totally awesome, like the training sequence in Rocky, for example. Others aren't quite so lucky. In this feature, we'll share with you the most uncomfortable, awkward or downright painful montages ever laid to film. Bad romance, incompetent teamwork and more await you within.
The 50 Best TV Show Theme Songs
When people think of their favorite songs of all time, most forget the obvious choices from an overlooked category: television theme songs. These short sonic blasts grow on you episode after episode as you begin to associate particular tunes with the TV show characters you enjoy watching. With or without lyrics, small-screen themes trigger all kinds of responses: They instantly get you in the mood to laugh your ass off for the next half hour, signal that it’s time to make a quick dash to the fridge for a snack before showtime, or make you feel nostalgic in ways you didn’t think possible.
9 Ways Geeks Have Inherited the Earth
It’s safe to say that we now live in a geek’s world. One only has to look at the way gadgets and the Internet dominate every aspect of modern existence. Geeks are essential to the normal functioning of billions of lives daily. Without them, civilization as we know it would come to a screeching halt. Just imagine a world without something like the Internet — entire businesses would freeze, failed GPS systems would delay countless travelers, unemployment would shoot up even more, and people everywhere would commit mass suicide. Although we don’t like to think of it this way, geeks are king and pretty much rule our lives whether we like it or not. Here are 9 ways geeks have inherited the earth.
