8 Homes Built Out of Spite
Nothing says ‘screw you’ like building a house out of pure spite. Wikipedia defines a spite house as: A building constructed or modified to irritate neighbors or other parties with land stakes. Spite houses often serve as obstructions, blocking out light or access to neighboring buildings, or as flamboyant symbols of defiance. Because long-term occupation is at best a secondary consideration, spite houses frequently sport strange and impractical structures. Below you will find eight real-world examples of people who took their conflict to the next level. Like Dave Chappelle [Clayton Bigsby] says: “If you have hate in your heart. Let it out”
13 Coco Tweet Roundups: 12/07/12
Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based messages of up to 140 characters, known as "tweets". It was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and launched that July. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with over 500 million active users as of 2012, generating over 340 million tweets daily and handling over 1.6 billion search queries per day.

Unregistered users can read tweets, while registered users can post tweets through the website interface, SMS, or a range of apps for mobile devices.
The 50 Hottest Prostitutes In Movies
Prostitution is the world's oldest profession, so it makes perfect sense that it has featured prominently in motion pictures since the dawn of moviemaking. The obsession with beautiful, half naked women who demand pay to play has not waned a bit, as evidenced by movies like Elles, in theaters now, where Juliette Binoche plays a journalist writing an article about two empowered female students (Joanna Kulig and Anaïs Demoustier) who moonlight as prostitutes. The movie biz being the movie biz, it's rare to see a sex worker who's not stunning. And while we enjoy a realistically beat-looking Charlize Theron in Monster or a strung out Kerry Washington in The Dead Girl, we're not complaining. In fact, we're celebrating.
10 Surprising Collectible Cars of Tomorrow
Duesenbergs, El Caminos, and the Model T are emblems of their era. The Hummer H2 also falls squarely into that category. Little more than a butched-up Chevy Tahoe, the H2 was loved and hated in equal measure. The military-themed knockoff was a hit with individuals with a type A personality and a need for some conspicuous consumption. A huge tax loophole at the time made it a corporate write-off for everyone from hip-hop stars to construction bosses. When the bottom fell out of the economy in 2008 and green motoring became popular, the 8-mpg Hummer was vilified, becoming a poster child for everything wrong with GM and the decade. Just as suicide-door Continentals and fin-tail Cadillacs embodied the 1960s, nothing says 2000s like a bright red Hummer H2.
10 Most Suspenseful Train Movies: When Action Rides the Rails
An out-of-control, unmanned train, carrying a load of toxic waste? That's the thrilling (and surprisingly real-life) premise of Denzel Washington's movie 'Unstoppable.' Of course, out-of-control and unstoppable trains are nothing new to the movies. (And we're not just talking about cable staples like 'Atomic Train.') Since the silent era, audiences have thrilled to action set aboard locomotives: Whether it's spies evading Nazis, a bunch of teens trapped with a murderer, or a trainful of passengers exposed to a deadly plague, if it happens on board a train, it's automatically twice as exciting. All aboard for our list of the 10 Most Suspenseful Train Movies ever made -- and a few over-the-top action sequences.
7 Things To Do Now For Your Small Business
Stop! I know you're incredibly busy, but you must take care of some things for your small business right now, during the month of December. Some options will disappear entirely, such as tax breaks on sport-utility vehicles, if you neglect to take advantage of them now. Other steps are highly advisable — such as transitioning to new systems to be ready to go Jan. 1 — to help you be more productive and profitable in 2013. The beginning of the year is a natural and ideal time to switch to new financial and back-office systems. It makes record keeping far easier if you change when the calendar year changes, assuming you operate your business on a calendar year basis as most small businesses do.
8 Smart Moves To Save On Health Care
If you don’t have health insurance coverage or you're stuck with a high-deductible policy, you already know the cost of medical checkups, dental exams, glasses, braces and other health care expenses can add up. Global health actuarial consulting firm Milliman found that out-of-pocket expenses to cover copays, prescriptions and other costs not covered by insurance rose 9.2% from 2010 to 2011. But don't resign yourself to skipping tests or leaving prescriptions unfilled until you've considered these eight clever ways to get the care you need at a price you can afford.
5 Worst Winter Weather Cities
The idea of perfect weather is as crazy as the idea of a perfect world or a perfect anything. One person’s ideal weather is another’s worst day. The funny thing about weather is that some people enjoy what most of us consider the worst weather—snowstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes—we’ve had people ask us where to move to for the best place to see tornadoes, believe it or not. To help us answer the question of ìperfectî weather, we polled our Facebook fans. The consensus seemed to be for clear blue skies, low humidity, temperatures around 75°F, and a light wind. Yet others said snow and lots of it. So instead of picking perfect weather we’re picking far-from-perfect or “worst” weather.
4 Risky Places To Swipe Your Debit Card
Would you give a thief direct access to your checking account? No? Unfortunately, you may be doing just that by regularly using your debit card. Debit cards may look identical to credit cards, but there's one key difference. With credit cards, users who spot fraudulent charges on their bill can simply decline the charges and not pay the bill. On the other hand, debit cards draw money directly from your checking account, rather than from an intermediary such as a credit card company. Because of that, even clear-cut cases of fraud where victims are protected from liability by consumer protection laws can cause significant hardship, says Frank Abagnale, a secure-document consultant in Washington, D.C.
