The 20 Awesomest Classic Arcade Cabinets
Listen up, kids, I know that the idea of leaving your parents' house to go play video games seems like an incomprehensible thought, but there was a time when the youth of America did just that.

These games may not have all the bells and whistles of today's machines, but they're arcade royalty and shouldn't be forgotten. Get ready for some nostalgia overload.

9 Car Accidents Caused by Google Maps and GPS
Car accidents caused by GPS and Google Maps, unfortunately, aren't all that unusual. The results of people blindly following electronic directions into large bodies of water, busy roads (going the wrong way), and yes, even trees, clearly show that perhaps we've all become just a tad too reliant on those "helpful" voices and maps that guide us along our way. It's important to remember that, yes, maps and sat navigation devices are really great, but they're also potentially dangerous. This list includes some of the most dramatic examples of what can happen when people put a bit too much trust in their GPS devices and Google Maps.
10 Forensic Myths Spread by TV
If you’ve watched enough reruns of shows like CSI, NCIS, Law and Order, and Bones, you probably think you’re pretty well-versed in the science of forensics and crime-solving. Think again.

Struggling to work out what decade the film you’re watching is from? If it fulfils the criteria on this list, then it’s probably from the 80s.

20 Ways to Spring Clean Without Spending a Cent
The tulips are blooming, the birds are singing, and you’re on your hands and knees in your ugliest sweatpants scrubbing the grout on the bathroom floor. Spring cleaning isn’t exactly fun, but it’s a necessary evil that can be made a lot more pleasant with the use of natural, non-toxic products that won’t leave you with a headache or require a costly trip to the store. If you’ve got baking soda, vinegar, lemons, an old towel and a handful of other common household items, you can give your house a fresh start without spending any money at all.
The 50 Best Movie Twists
Horror fans, and lovers of genre-invigorating cinema in general, you’re in for one hell of a surprise this weekend. Opening in theaters nationwide, and hopefully becoming the first movie to dethrone The Hunger Games as the new box office chart-topper (wishful thinking, we know), The Cabin in the Woods (co-written by producer Joss Whedon and director Drew Goddard) is many things: It’s a total deconstruction of nearly every horror movie cliché, trope, and supernatural antagonist; it’s the best and smartest meta-horror film since 1996’s Scream, and arguably better than Wes Craven’s tongue-in-cheek slasher flick, at that; and it’s the year’s best, not to mention most giddily off-the-rails, movie thus far.

5 Titanic Myths Spread By Films
It is the tragic story that everybody knows the end to - the doomed Titanic sinks. Its final hours have become the stuff of myth - but how much have the various film versions of the story helped to create and reinforce these legends? One hundred years ago RMS Titanic raced into an iceberg at almost full speed. Two-and-a-half hours later, it sank to the bottom of the Atlantic with the loss of over 1,500 men, women and children. It has inspired a host of films, documentaries and conspiracy theories. The re-release of James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster in 3D is a reminder that many people's knowledge of the events of 14 April 1912 comes not from historical fact, but the silver screen.
10 Weak Movie Characters Who Became Incredible Badasses
It’s called a character arc, and everybody has one. It’s the progression of a character throughout a film as they go from “A” to “B” and change emotionally, intellectually, and physically along the way. It exists because nobody sane wants to watch two hours of some dude sitting in a chair…which just so happens to be the story of how this very list was made. When it comes to action, horror, and any other fast-paced genre of film, one of the best things about watching the characters adapt is that since the environment they exist in is so do-or-die, there is a incredibly steep learning curve – so by the end of the film, you most likely have a completely different person you started with…and considering that they are still alive, they probably got way, way more badass along the way.
