7 Abandoned Amusement Parks
From Zombieland to Scooby Doo to Silent Hill 3, movies, TV shows and games love to incorporate abandoned amusement parks into the storylines because they are inherently creepy. The haunting silence in a place that should be filled with laughter and chatter just seems wrong and, of course, if a ride does happen to move when it’s not supposed to, that’s when you know things are really going to end badly. But abandoned amusement parks aren’t just found in works of fiction. Here are some truly creepy and completely real theme parks that have been left to nature’s devices.

7 Lies About Pirates You Learned From Movies
Hollywood pirate movies usually focus on the men of the so-called Golden Age of Piracy. This was a very short time period in the late 1600?s and early 1700?s, when English and American pirates plundered the Caribbean islands, the eastern coast of the United States and the western coast of Africa.

Top 10 Most Common Ingredients in Fast Food
Order a meal in any fast-food restaurant, and you'll likely walk away with a sandwich, fries and a drink. If you had to identify the ingredients of this meal, you might list beef (or chicken), lettuce, tomato, cheese, ketchup, bread, potatoes and soda. Not complicated, right? Wrong.

For example, McDonald's famous Big Mac jingle -- "two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun" -- suggests the sandwich has seven components.
