The 10 Most Clever Ways Bill Nye Tricked Us Into Learning About Science

he world would be a much grayer place without Bill Nye, who's of the one few childhood icons from the 1990s worth feeling nostalgic for (sorry, Binyah Binyah Pollywog). He taught us about science, yo, and in a world where you never know when you'll need to wipe the contents of a laptop clean with a magnet, it's an important topic to be knowledgeable in. Especially when it's coming from a man with a deep passion for the topic, not a 75-year-old half-deaf war veteran who doubles as the middle school gym teacher. So, in honor of the Science Guy being alive (and his amazing video directed toward evolution deniers), here are 10 clever ways Bill Nye tricked us into learning about science as kids.

The World's 17 Most Mysterious Ghost Towns

A once thriving coal town in the late 1800s, Thurmond, West Virginia went from hundreds of residents to just five, according to a 2010 census. The reason for the town's demise was diesel. In the 40s and 50s, as trains converted from coal to more-reliable diesel, Thurmond's main customers were trains that came through the railway depot to collect locally mined coal, with the final steam-powered train making its last run in 1958. The remaining residents are committed to the town -- in 2005, six of the seven remaining townies ran for public office.

10 of the Dirtiest Songs Ever Written

This edition of Jackyís Sass will explore the art of song writing Ė but instead of promoting talented song-writers and exploring beautiful lyrics about love and emotion, Iím putting my true journalistic capabilities to better use. I want to look at some of the dirtiest, most perverted songs ever written. Itís always fun to laugh at the stupid things artists write, but when you take a look at songs on the sexual end of the scale, youíre torn somewhere between laughter and shock. Before we start, Iím putting in a disclaimer; these lyrics are not for the faint of heart. Itís about to get NASTY up in here.

Top 10 Foods Of The Future

When talking about food of the future, soylent green (the foodstuffs made out of people from the classic Sci-Fi movie of the same name) and grasshoppers leap to mind. Well, I donít think most of todayís (or tomorrowís) consumers are too interested in snacking on the remains of their neighbors. Nevertheless, the idea of what kind of foods we will be chowing down on in the not-too-distant future is interesting to explore; especially considering that we can expect an increase of over 2 BILLION people living on the planet by 2050. Just how will 9+ billion people feed themselves? Well, just consider the strides in food production and consumption that the world has experienced in the past 50 years. Where staples such as chicken and beef have been supplemented with genetically enhanced meat products, soybean and a host of other products that we consume daily, we can certainly expect even more dietary innovations to meet consumption needs. With this is mind, letís take a look at the top ten foods of the future.

30 Gun Buyback Program Myths

Gun by back programs, started during World War 2 in which the military purchased thousands of qualifying shotguns, rifles, and sidearms for use by Civil Defense units and for training purposes. One of the largest buybacks in history was the 1996 Australian Buyback in which over 600,000 firearms were purchased by the government from its citizens. The huge number was a result of most types of firearms being banned in that county the same year, and thus made illegal. Since the assault weapons ban in the United States, many organizations and cities have had their own buy backs with the publicly stated purpose of reducing the number of unwanted firearms on the streets and thus cutting back on crime. These programs have gained momentum in the past decade with agencies offering as much as $200 in gift cards (often donated by local businesses) for each firearm turned in-- no questions asked, with the harvested firearms being destroyed.

25 Amazing Tattoos Inspired by Childrenís Movies

An extremely worn VHS copy of The Goonies. A beloved E.T. doll that youíve held onto since the í80s. A delightful poster of Jareth, the Goblin King, that once hung above your bed.

100 Wonderful and Terrible Movies That Never Existed

For every movie that makes it to your local cineplex, there are dozens that never come into existence. In another universe, Mel Gibson directed Fahrenheit 451, Terry Gilliam directed Watchmen, and Batman fought Godzilla. The history of movies is crammed full of weird almost-weres and could-have-beens. A lot of people seemed to be startled the other day when we mentioned that David Cronenberg could have directed Return of the Jedi. So here's some reference material: a list of some 100 movies that never happened. This list probably could have been 200 movies, but we gave up when we hit 100.
