Top 10 Weirdest Fashion Trends from Around the World
It is not the intention of anyone here at TopTenz to insult the diverse fashion sensibilities of other countries.

Read on to find out more about those and other weirdest fashion trends from all over the globe.
Top 10 Washington, D.C. Hotels Based on Guest Reviews
Just in time for this month's presidential inauguration, a new Top 10 hotels list for Washington, D.C., based on online consumer reviews, shows us the most popular hotels in the city. The Top 10 list was compiled for USA TODAY's Hotel Check-In by ReviewPro, a company that calculates hotels' scores by crunching consumer reviews from more than 120 Web sources such as consumer review giant TripAdvisor.

"It's not necessarily a 'value for money' list, but value does tend to drive a lot of online review ratings."

Ten Outrageous Anti-Gun Journalists
The media agenda against guns is nothing new. But recent mass shootings have encouraged supposedly neutral journalists to push for gun regulation instead of reporting the facts surrounding the tragedies. One thing the media seldom mention is that both the Newtown and Aurora shootings occurred in gun free zones. In the Clackamas Town Center Shooting in Oregon, however, a gunman was stopped when someone with a concealed carry permit intervened. There were only two casualties in this shooting which received little media attention. If this incident was mentioned, the concealed carry part of the story was almost completely ignored. Some journalists have gone after after the NRA, calling for them to labeled “terrorist organizations” or lamented that they “yield too much power.” Others simply attacked any pro-gun advocate they had on their program. Still, a few went straight for the Constitution, with calls to “repeal the Second Amendment” or revise it. Many tried to imagine a world without guns … forgetting that even without guns, violence would still exist.
