16 Badass Movie Soldiers
It’s hard not to like a good war movie. Action, intrigue, high body counts, lots of gunplay, a moral of some sort. They got it all. One of the most vital ingredients to making successful combat cinema is reserving at least one character to be a soldier that crushes. The guy who displays little to no fear, is mean as a snake and single-handedly wipes out a significant number of the enemy. These military mavens can take a beating and just as easily dish one out. Using the year 1979 as a starting point, here are sixteen badass movie soldiers from the last thirty years.

15 Logos That Look Like Other Things
And just to be up front about this, the vast majority of these other things are sexual things, or just totally juvenile things. But what can you do? I don't make the logos; I just report on them.
10 Completely Insane Foreign Knock-Off Films
Somewhere in history, the idea of "copyright" came into existence. This meant that if you had an idea, and you "copyrighted" it, no one else could make money off it unless you gave your approval. As a result, films were copyrighted so Sam Dumbass couldn't make his own sequel to Star Wars and profit off of it. Of course, in many other countries, copyright is just another funny sounding foreign word which means absolutely nothing; not unrelatedly, these countries are seldom on the first-run lists of places to show the latest American blockbuster. So sometimes, enterprising foreign people may decide to raise 100 kfernupfs, or whatever other bizarre local currency they use, and make their own version of said Hollywood movie for their own profit. Their local culture and entertainment values, coupled with the fact that the filmmakers often never saw the original movie, but heard about it second-, third- or even possibly 16th-hand, make for some truly bizarre -- but often entertainingly awful -- cinematic rip-offs.

Many of today’s TV shows have dispensed with the traditional theme song in an effort to squeeze in more commercial time, which fills traditional television fans with a sense of melancholy.

Where the Wild Things Are: The World’s Seven Best Zoos
If you haven’t been to a zoo in a while, the word may conjure up visions of rusty cages, forlorn elephants shuffling around on beds of straw, and a couple of listless lions yawning and fantasizing about the Serengeti as they mope around a dirt enclosure. This was certainly how I imagined zoos for most of my adult life, since I hadn’t been to one in at least two decades. But when I tagged along with my friend and her three-year-old on a recent trip to the San Diego Zoo, I could never have imagined just how off-base my mental images had been all those years. As I strolled down a misty, verdant path, I could make out tigers prowling through the vegetation. I could have sworn I was trekking deep into a rainforest—until a quick detour landed me smack in the middle of the Arctic tundra, where polar bears romped in frigid pools. Every landscape I encountered was so convincing that I left feeling as if I’d explored the entire globe in a mere four hours. With scenes like these, who needs safaris?
