Top 10 Uniquely-Powered Concept Cars
Concept cars generally have one of two jobs to fulfill. They’re either used to preview a soon-to-be-reality production car. Or they’re something completely bonkers designed to grab headlines and get people thinking. Many concept cars, especially nowadays, are fitted – or theoretically fitted – with unconventional drivetrains. Electric-powered and Hybrid-powered vehicles now make up a significant proportion of the annual concept car yield. Just ten years ago they might have been unusual. Today they’re normal. To make it into this top ten list the concept cars have to have remarkably unusual propulsion units or drivetrain elements.
The Terrible 20: Hangover Cures
Over the weekend, America celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, a national day of grotesque ethnic caricature that millions use as an excuse to dress up like Green Lantern and drink beer for breakfast. This means, of course, that this past Sunday, St. Paddy revelers woke up with hangovers that felt like elves trying to jackhammer out of skulls.
8 Rules on How To Apply Sunscreen And How Not To
Sunscreen is kind of like toothpaste. If you don’t use enough—or use it incorrectly—it’s just not going to work. Only instead of gum disease and cavities, you’re leaving yourself open to premature aging (wrinkles, sagging, and melanin deposits caused by sun exposure) or worse, skin cancer. While no sunscreen is 100 percent effective at blocking ultraviolet (UV) rays, many sunburns are caused by faulty or infrequent application. About 100 percent of dermatologists say that most people don’t follow the directions right on the bottle to re-apply sunscreen regularly. And using last season’s sunblock or one reaching its expiration date is not a great idea either.
Here Are The Fifteen Professions That Drink The Most Coffee. Guess Who’s Number One.
In 2011, Dunkin' Donuts teamed up with CareerBuilder to shed some light on U.S. coffee consumption in the workplace. After polling 4,700 American workers, they concluded that "some professionals need coffee more than others." After the jump, you'll find an infographic that depicts the fifteen professions most dependent upon coffee, along with some interesting trends. Is your job on the list? If you're involved in scientific research, the answer is a jittery, highly caffeinated "yes." Among those polled, scientists and lab techs were found to be the heaviest coffee drinkers in the country. Anyone who works, or has worked, in science will likely find this result unsurprising.
Here Are 11 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Andre the Giant
It seems like only yesterday, we were running around telling anyone who'd listen that “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” Actually, we did say that just yesterday, as the famous line from the movie 'The Princess Bride' has been stuck in our minds for over 25 years. In honor of the classic flick, we took a look at one of its biggest stars (literally and figuratively) André Roussimoff — known to the world as André the Giant. The legend himself has been gone for almost twenty years but his name and image are still a major part of pop culture. Here are 11 things you probably didn't know about “The Eighth Wonder of the World”
The 7 Most Overrated Blockbuster Movies of the Last 20 Years
As a capitalist, it’s tempting to say that box-office receipts are a better judge of a movie’s worth than Hollywood award ceremonies. However, that ignores the sad reality that Americans sure do love some crummy movies. We’re not even talking “good crummy” either, like a fun zombie or chop socky flick; we’re talking “bad crummy.” Big-budget, high-powered, star-filled atrocities that bank hundreds of millions of dollars despite being average at best and mediocre at worst.

The 10 Best Gangster Nicknames
“Joey Cupcakes” pled not guilty this month. That would be Joseph “Joey Cupcakes" Urgitano, charged with taking a metal baseball bat and doing a number on two men who were harassing a woman on West 14th Street in New York City in August. For our money, we believe “Joey Cupcakes.” For two reasons: (1) With a nickname like that, dollars to donuts he would stand up for a dame in distress and (2) His lawyer is the great Murray “Don’t Worry” Richman. For this kind of charge, that’s the best kind of legal money can buy. Anyway, if you’re going to go into the business of crime (and we’re not saying “Joey Cupcakes” is in that business) then you need yourself a nice nickname, one that people and, more importantly, the press, will remember.

Top 10 Food Ingredients That Have Been Banned
Food ingredients can be toxic to our system as well. Some have been alleged to be cancer causing, cholesterol raising, cardiovascular disease causing and a host of other diseases and discomforts.
