Top 10 Fashion Trends From the 1980s
Sometimes we miss the 1980s a little bit. And then we remember all the awful fashion trends and we’re oh so happy they’re over. 80s fashion trends were just so… 80s. And we wouldn’t be caught dead in most of them these days. But a few of them? We might try again. Here are the top 10 fashion trends from the 80s.
10 Watches More Expensive Than A Ferrari
Let’s be realistic here, the economy is in the crapper and your 401k looks about as arousing as you do after a cold shower. What’s a Burgundy drinking, ’stache rocking, web surfing Internet denizen like you to do? Diversify your skill set by ogling watches you’ll never be able to afford and learning what makes them tick. Most of these watches are more complicated than college calculus and have more history than you could learn in a lifetime. You might even need an engineering degree and an instructional tome to figure out how they work. Regardless, all these watches (for one reason or another) are ridiculously cool and absurdly expensive. Sell the Ferrari, liquidate the stocks, and pick up one of these bad-ass timekeeping devices.
7 Old Movies That We Want to See in 3D
My earliest memory of watching a movie in 3-D was back in the late 1980s when Jaws 3 came out. Back then the highlight of the technology involved severed limbs and fish carcasses floating out at you in a rather creepy fashion. Other than that, there really was not much of a difference. Oh what a couple decades can do when it comes to technology. It seems that 3D has made a comeback in a big way the last couple years with everything from a major motion picture to a cartoon to horror films. If not for the visual treat that the 3-D technology added to Avatar, there is no way that movie would have grossed $50 million, let alone become one of the highest grossing movies of all time. In an industry that is fond of retooling, remaking, and flat-out copying its past work, it would nice if Hollywood updated some of these cinema greats (and not so greats) in 3D?

The 15 Money Rules Kids Should Learn
It's a simple calculus, kids and money: From birth until college graduation, children consume dollars like they're chicken nuggets. For those of us who aren't independently wealthy, that puts unrelenting pressure on the family pocketbook. The financial demands of raising a child require that money you otherwise might use to prepare for retirement, or to save for a nicer house, a sportier car or a swankier vacation, must, out of necessity, be earmarked for Lego sets and pediatrician visits and school uniforms and Christmas toys and a college savings account and a minivan and a trip to Disneyland ... and lots of, well, chicken nuggets.
8 Extremely Nerdy Talents Caught On Video
Don’ t think you have any talent? Perhaps you should broaden your definition of what a “talent” actually is. For example, you may be really good at multitasking, identifying Star Wars minifigs with your mouth, reciting all 79 Star Trek episodes in order, or, simply wearing an assload of ironic t-shirts.

Top 10 Popes Who Died Violently
Pope (from Papa meaning Father) is the term used for the men who have ruled the Catholic Church since its birth at Pentecost.

Since that time, there have been many other attempts to decipher ancient languages, or to crack codes that have been made for fun or fortune.
