11 Invaluable Life Lessons From His Holiness, The Dalai lama
Given the scale of life in the cosmos, one human life is no more than a tiny blip. Each one of us is a just visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy or in conflict with our companions? Far better, surely, to use our short time here in living a meaningful life, enriched by our sense of connection with others and being of service to them.
10 Rumors You Didn't Know About The Founding Fathers
He founded the First National Bank, served as the first Secretary of the Treasury, fought alongside George Washington as aide-de-camp, but rumors of Alexander Hamilton's disloyalty to the stars and stripes still dog legacy. Some historians, including Julian P. Boyd, think that Hamilton a double-agent for the British working under the code name Number 7.

The 10 Nerdiest Myths MythBusters Busted
MythBusters isn't merely one of the best TV shows currently on the air; by my reckoning, it is also the most purely nerdy program on television. The very concept of the show is steeped in nerd tradition, as who among us hasn't whiled away a few entertaining hours discussing the feasibility of a questionable movie stunt, or an urban legend, or a dubious historical "fact" with some fellow geeks? These geeks just happen to be special effects wizards: The upbeat, frenetic Adam Savage; the stoic, yet eccentric Jamie Hyneman; Human crash-test dummy Tori Belleci; ginger-haired Mistress of Destruction Kari Byron; and the man most likely to be spared when the Robot Apocalypse comes, Grant Imahara. Together, they do what we just talk about -- put popular claims ranging from the semi-reasonable to the totally audacious under the microscope, and test them in the real world. Also, they film themselves doing it.
Top 10 Embarrassing Movies Made By Legendary Actors
Every actor is bound to make a stinker or two over the course of his or her career. Heck, if you’re looking at someone like Nic Cage or John Travolta, he’s bound to make a dozen or more, and let’s not even get started on someone like Emilio Estevez or his esteemed uncle, Joe.

8 Myths About Sex Differences
Everyone knows that men and women are really different. We think differently and act differently because we are wired differently. I mean look at our brains and genitals: they are just plain different. Right? Wrong. What if many of the things we assume about the biology of difference are not so different at all? What if it is not our “wiring” but the ways in which our bodies and minds develop and play out in society that makes us seem so unalike? Could it be that men and women are more similar than we think? Yes, women give birth and lactate and men do not. And yes, men are, on average, slightly larger than women and usually have greater upper body strength.
