Top 10 Ways to Spot an Abusive Man
Abusive men always think there is a reason behind a womanís actions and her words. They see her as only trying to influence. They rarely look at goodness in her. They frequently suspect her of doing things they are not guilty of and are easily irritated by her, especially when she is in a good mood. These men might feel they love these women but inside they do not "like" them. The most important thing in any relationship is to be respected and liked. Abusive men always want to show her up and put her down. They thrive on making her feel inferior in everything. The object is to tear her down to make her feel weak, insecure and co-dependent. It is a double-edged sword: a no win situation. The woman spends years trying to prove she's not bad but it's useless. No matter what she does, he doesnít care so it is futile for her to try to prove she is worthwhile.
The 20 Cheapest Cars To Insure
The flipside of yesterday's 20 most expensive cars to insure in America list is today's Insure.com-provided list of the 20 least expensive cars to insure. Like saving money? Get ready to own a lame crossover or minivan. Kim Hazelbaker of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety sums it up nicely: "The least expensive vehicles are ones you have to drive and no one wants to." She isn't exaggerating ó with the notable exception of the Jeep Wrangler, no self-respecting enthusiast would be caught dead in any of these. In fact, these cars are all so bad that, if you really need to save money, we'd recommend walking over buying one. The cash you'd pay for Kia Sportage would make for one really kickass pair of sneakers. The annual cost listed is based on rates for a 40-year old man with a clean driving record.

9 Medical Marijuana Ads
Unless you live in Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont or Washington, you probably arenít getting a lot of medical marijuana ads in your local newspapers. (Did I leave any states off the list?) Because the ads are so ubiquitous, and so interesting, I thought a small roundup was in order for our friends living in all the other states, or in other countries where medical marijuana is illegal. Of course, long before cannabis was legalized in these 14 states, it was used widely throughout ancient Greece, Egypt, India, and China to treat various illnesses and conditions. But it wasnít until an Irish physician called William Brooke OíShaughnessy, Assistant-Surgeon and Professor of Chemistry at the Medical College of Calcutta, conducted an experiment in the 1830s to help treat muscle spasms, that marijuana was introduced to the so-called modern world of medicine.

Another 10 One on One Battles in Film
It was great to see the comments that were posted when I created my first ever list. Thank you for your positive and negative feedback. As I mentioned in the comments this list is completely based on opinion and will not be that educational unless you are looking for good movies to rent. The number one thing I picked up on was to watch my grammar (this has always been an issue for me) and to make sure I post spoiler alerts. Many of the suggestions that were made sparked my memory and I was able to come up with another 25 one-on-one fights that deserve to be on a second list. I have thus created a sequel to my first list taking your suggestions and my own personal favorites and filtering the list down to ten. I know there are some that I missed so I apologize. Also I will admit that although I do enjoy movies from all over the world I am lacking in experience when it comes to Asian / martial arts film. I also think that if I would have a hard time choosing from this genre as each movie probably has some epic battles, so I decided to try and be a bit more diverse. Might I suggest someone creates a one-on-one martial arts films list? Please feel free to post your suggestions. Remember that I grade the top ten based on significance and dramatic effect of the fights.
6 Reasons A$$holes Are Healthier (According to Science)
We tend to think of calm, peaceful Zen master types as the healthiest and happiest people in the species. After all, that twice-divorced, douchebag stock broker getting red in the face as he screams insults into the phone will surely be dead of a heart attack before he's 50, right? That may be wishful thinking. It turns out there's a reason humans still cling to the behaviors that get us tagged as assholes. They might just make us healthier.
5 Horrible Criminal Getaways
While itís not always so simple, the general gist of a good getaway plan should consist of: Get in car, gun it, Mexico, beaches, girls, sex, money, and all in that order. Of course, in some cases the plans donít always work out, and in others, people are just so damn stupid itís as if they arenít even trying.

The 10 Funniest Public Access Prank Calls Of All Time
I truly feel sorry for the kids of today because they missed out on the golden age of prank calling. Thanks to cell phones and caller ID it's extremely difficult for them to anonymously order 40 pizzas to their sworn enemies house and prank call their local Walmart on a Friday night without getting caught. It's also impossible for them to prank call their friends hot mom on a lonely Saturday night and talk dirty to her and that is a tragedy.
