15 Animals Highly Displeased About Being On National Television
David Mizejewski has been fascinated with wild creatures for as long as he can remember. He spent his youth romping in suburban woods, fields and marshes, observing and learning about the surprising diversity of wildlife that inhabit those areas. As a high school student studying ecology, Mizejewski began to see firsthand the clear connection between native plant communities and wildlife populations, and his passion for wildlife-friendly gardening was born. In addition to hosting Animal Planet's BACKYARD HABITAT, Mizejewski manages the National Wildlife Federation's Backyard Wildlife Habitat™ program, which for more than 30 years has inspired people to make a home for wildlife right outside their back door. David is the author of the award-winning book Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife, published in 2004 by Creative Homeowner.
15 Crazy Attempts To Kill Hitler That Almost Worked
It's everyone's favorite "What if?" and "If you could go back in time" answer: killing Hitler. We all wish we could eradicate Hitler before he could order the murder of millions of people. But during his reign of terror in Nazi Germany, there were more than 40 attempts on Hitler's life, all of them obviously unsuccessful. What if one of them had worked? Because most would-be assassins attempt to plan their deed around their victim's schedule, Hitler's personal policy was to live his life "irregularly." He would routinely avoid routine, often canceling plans at the last moment
14 Things You May Not Have Known About Marilyn Monroe
Playboy magazine named Marilyn Monroe the "#1 Sex Star" of the 20th century in 1999. People magazine named her "Sexiest Woman of the Century" the same year. She is the most written-about (over 600 books at last count) movie actress in history. Her movies, including Some Like It Hot, The Seven Year Itch, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Bus Stop are now considered classic and continue to be shown routinely on television and sell big time on video and DVD.

Sure, Meryl Streep is the more acclaimed actress, but when was the last time you saw someone buy a Meryl Streep poster?
15 Movie Characters That Survived Getting Shot In The Head
The adult human skull is a hard protective shell that looks out for the brain, the body's command center. It can withstand a considerable amount of abuse, but a speeding bullet? A bit beyond its capabilities. So it's rare that a person gets shot in the head and walks away from it. Unless that person is in a movie. Take Bangkok Revenge, martial artist Jon Foo's (Tekken) new action drama, in which a young boy looks on as a team of masked gunmen shoot and kill his parents. Not ones to leave a potential witness or vengeful survivor, they pop his top as well, only instead of killing him they merely destroy the part of his brain that feels emotion, so when he's all grown and trained in ass-kicking he doesn't feel the slightest remorse for beating anybody associated with the crime to death. That is what's known in the hit man community as a fail.
