14 Reasons the Nanny State is Outta Control
Every decade or so, a new demon occupies the attention of the crusaders for public health. Recently, that demon has been trans fats. For the most part, trans fats are found hydrogenated vegetable oils — namely shortening and margarine. But since the consumption of trans fats has been linked to high cholesterol and heart disease, in 2007, New York City banned the use of trans fats in all restaurants, including fast food fryers, a place where trans fatty oil was preferred because it had a long shelf-life.
9 Timeless Movies About the College Transition
Graduating from high school and entering college (or even not entering college) so often symbolizes the transition between adolescence and adulthood. It makes perfect sense that creatives would milk as many narratives from this incredibly reflective, emotional period as they possibly can, and it makes just as much sense that many would go on to stand as pretty memorable, if not outright influential.

14 Reasons Why This Is The Worst Congress Ever
the House of Representatives voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. On its own, such a vote would be unremarkable. Republicans control the House, they oppose President Obama’s health reform law, and so they voted to get rid of it. But here’s the punchline: This was the 33rd time they voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Holding that vote once makes sense. Republicans had promised that much during the 2010 campaign. But 33 times? If doing the same thing twice and expecting a different result makes you insane, what does doing the same thing 33 times and expecting a different result make you? Well, it makes you the 112th Congress. Hating on Congress is a beloved American tradition. Hence Mark Twain’s old joke, “Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress.

13 Works of Art Made With Teeth
Where would we be without teeth? Haggard and full of soup – that’s where we’d be.
