22 Television Myths and Conspiracy Theories
More and more, people are desperate to do anything for their "15 minutes of fame." Nowadays, even some news agencies are using people's penchant for spectacle to make big bucks.

15 Baby Animals That Are Definitely Not Cute
It’s springtime! The “Bambi” theme plays as baby animals everywhere learn how to walk on their tiny adorable legs. Wait. Aren’t most baby animals blind, hairless monsters? Yes. Yes they are. This one is unnerving because of its vaguely human-like eyes. Like a human fetus mixed with some dog genes.
10 Amazing Facts About the Transit of Venus
A transit in astronomical terms is when one heavenly body passes in front of another such that, as viewed from Earth, we can see one move across the other in the background. The moon transiting in front of the sun during a solar eclipse, for example. Much more rare than a solar eclipse is the planet Venus transiting the Sun. The last time this took place was in 2004. But you are in luck! The next transit of Venus will occur this year! On June 5 to June 6, 2012 those positioned in the right spot on Earth, and with clear skies, will get to see this very rare event. The best spot to see the transit will be in the Pacific Ocean. The island of Tahiti is ideal for those who wish to travel to see it happen and the island is making preparations for many “astronomy tourists” to go there to view the transit. Portions of the transit will be viewable from Europe and North America. Most of South America and western Africa will not be able to see the transit. What an observer will see is a small black dot (Venus) passing in front of the sun. Depending on where you are on Earth to view the transit, you may see the dot move slowly across the Sun for several hours.
5 Awful Actors Who Had One Great Performance
I’ve been meaning to write this article for a while now, but when an actor is terrible, they’re usually pretty terrible, and it can be hard to find a singularly good part they’ve played. Similarly, it’s hard to say that mediocre actor (*cough* Nic Cage) only has ONE good performance out there (he’s at least got a couple). But I finally decided on these five as bad actors who had one really good part. Feel free to disagree, but more importantly, add your own. And if anyone says Adam Sandler in Punch Drunk Love, you yourself will be getting a punch. The man was brilliant in Happy Gilmore.
5 Proposals To Solve $1 Trillion College Loan Crisis
A college degree is supposed to pave the way to a better life. It didn't work out that way for Judith Tuck. Tuck graduated from the University of Arizona in 1996 with a master's degree in rehabilitation counseling and $44,000 in student loans. She had every intention of keeping up with her loan payments, but after a series of low-wage jobs in her field, her debt began to snowball. Tuck, a 73-year-old widow, now owes more than $136,000. Her wages have been garnished and she faces losing everything, including her home. "The only good thing about student loans is that the day I die my children will not have to pay for them," she says. Outstanding student loans topped $1 trillion last year, exceeding the total amount of credit card debt. Thousands of borrowers are postponing getting married, buying a home or having children until their debts are paid off. Defaults are rising, which typically leads to larger loan balances. And the problem isn't limited to young adults. Some borrowers are older adults who went back to school. Others are parents who co-signed loans for their children.
