The 10 Most Lovable Movie Monsters of All Time
With the theatrical release of Frankenweenie, Tim Burton’s full-length animated adaptation of his 1984 live-action short of the same name (which he was fired from Disney for making). We loved the original (we’re pretty sure we wore that VHS tape right out), so we’ve always had a soft spot for Sparky that hasn’t been the least bit dampened by his, ahem, reanimation. As a side effect (there are always side effects for these kinds of things), the film’s release has had us meditating on some other cute monsters from cinema, so we’ve put together a list of the most lovable movie monsters of all time — according to us, of course.
8 Inappropriate Personal Tweets Mistakenly Sent Via Corporate Accounts

15 Real Ghosts: Marie Laveau, Kate Morgan, the Bell Witch and More
In 1942, prostitute-turned-killer Toni Jo Henry became Louisiana's first woman to die in the electric chair. After breaking her husband, Harold "Arkie" Burks, out of jail, the two hitched a ride with a passing car driven by Joseph P. Calloway. Toni Jo ordered Calloway out of the car at gunpoint, made him to undress and say his prayers, then shot him once in the head. Today she is said to haunt the Calcasieu Courthouse. Workers report hearing her screams, feeling her presence, and smelling her burning hair.
10 Vintage Nursing Recruitment Posters from World War I
World War I was one of the greatest catastrophes caused by man that history has ever seen. The Axis and Allied forces both dealt with short rations, social upheaval, and millions of deaths, both on and off the battlefield. It’s therefore not surprising that all of the governments involved invested a great deal of effort into encouraging their citizens to aid in the cause, especially through propaganda. From the beginning to the end of the conflict, a herculean effort was made to increase recruitment for the nursing profession. To encourage women to enter this difficult and dangerous occupation, posters often appealed to the target audience’s patriotism, sense of compassion for soldiers on the front line, and religious values.

6 True Stories That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity
Fun fact: If people were actually as bad as we say they are, civilization could not exist. So while the headlines are dominated by our weekly mass shootings, the reality is that day to day, we common folk make little sacrifices for each other and let insults slide and feel bad when we act like douchebags. Once the riot is over, cops and rioters will both stand and make small talk in the same line at Burger King.
Top 10 Foods You Think Are Healthy But Are Not
You must have heard that half knowledge is dangerous. This holds more relevance when it comes to food. Even if you have the dedication and determination to eat healthy foods you cannot do much if you do not have the proper knowledge about the food. 90% of your diet must have unprocessed food if you wish to lose fat and build muscles. If you are already doing this and feeling that this isn’t taking you anywhere then probably, you aren’t eating the healthy stuff.
The Top 5 Second Amendment Enemies and Hypocrites
Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan recently challenged a feisty reporter in Michigan on the Second Amendment. Ryan countered a loaded question from the reporter about “gun problems” saying “this nation has a crime problem.” Instead of proposing gun bans Ryan gave credence to enforcing current laws as well as focusing more energy on community groups, charities, education and youth programs. The interview ended abruptly after the reporter jabbed back at Ryan “and you can do all that by cutting taxes?” Anti-gun groups were clearly hopeful that gun control would be brought up at the last debate. With the first VP debate scheduled for this Thursday as well as two Presidential debates left to go, the chances are likely it could come up. It would be foolish to assume every politico is as pro-Second Amendment as Congressman Ryan.
