Top 10 Wars And Battles Forgotten Thanks To Cover-Ups
One of the sad truths about our little human race is that, far too often, we just donít like each other. This goes for the little guy and heads of state equally. Of course when the latter donít like each other, war is often the result. We all know the famous battles glorified by history books: Gettysburg, Bunker Hill, Iwo Jima, and the like. But not all battles are created equal. Some get buried in the minds of the few who ordered it or participated in it. Not because the story isnít interesting; itís just that somebody up high doesnít want you to hear about it, for one political reason or another.

9 of the Fastest Cancellations in Television History
The first network cancellation in each season always stings, and so it goes for the Mischa Barton comeback vehicle The Beautiful Life, whose aborted, two-episode run left a trail of broken hearts including those of conspiracy theorist costar Sara Paxton, the less than a million Beautiful Life viewers, and a handful of Brazilian fans who watched via iTunes.
