10 Largest Homes in the United States

These are the ten largest homes in the United States by square footage that were built before 1950. All ten of these mansion homes are big tourist attractions today that collectively receive over 5 million visitors annually.

The locations of some of these largest homes in the United States might be a surprise to many. How many people know that North Carolina is where the largest home in America is located or that the two smallest states in the United States, Rhode Island and Delaware, are home to three of the biggest homes in the United States built before 1950?

The 10 Best-Paying College Majors

This is probably a little too late for those of you who will be graduating from college in the coming weeks, but might be quite helpful to anyone getting their high school diploma soon. A new study lists the 10 college majors that will net you the most income right away. And if you thought your thesis on Emily Dickinson was going to translate into paycheck poetry, you were mistaken.

15 Motorcycles To Make You A Man

There is something about a motorcycle that is fundamentally manly. Even if there’s a woman on the bike (for the picture obviously) the beast beneath always shines through. If you don’t own a motorcycle, you want one. If you do own a motorcycle, you want more. No amount of crashes, kids, or horror stories will dissuade men from their love of an engine strapped to two wheels. These bikes don’t just put the wind in your hair and a hottie in your lap, they’re a direct line to your testosterone and adrenaline.

10 Truly Strange Ebay Auction Addicts

Expert psychologists and medical doctors are becoming gravely concerned about an emerging new problem: online auction bidding addiction. Sufferers sit at their computers, hearts beating wildly as they compete with other bidders to place the time-sensitive winning bid on an eBay item. Some of the items purchased are truly strange eBay auction items. If you have noticed yourself buying items you do not need or even want then its likely you are doing it just for the adrenalin rush provided by bidding. One doctor at the University of Alberta School of Business, Peter Popkowski Leszczyc, called this phenomenon “bidding frenzy” and defines it as “a mental state characterised by a high level of arousal or excitement, a sense of competition and a strong desire to win”. There are certain similarities to addictions to drugs or compulsively gambling. There is a feeling of euphoria Leszczyc states, “in particular in a fast paced auction or in the last minute of bidding”.

10 Cities With Air You Don’t Want To Breath

In a world of combustion engines and smoke stacks, we are all sucking in poison with every breath. Invisible to the eye, each puff of air has innumerable particles that destroy our bodies from the inside. Some parts of the planet are worse than others; the following article outlines 10 cities where it’s most hazardous to breath. Emissions fall into two categories – ozone pollution and particle pollution. Today, 1 in every 4 Americans are breathing air contaminated with one or the other (source: American Lung Association). The very air we breathe has become hazardous to our health.

The 5 Most Famous Musicians Who Are Thieving Bastards

Every artist "steals" a little, whether they realize it or not. For instance, we talk about how some musician was "influenced" by music they grew up with, even if sometimes that influence consists of outright stealing and/or barely remixing a classic. That's just the way it works. But sometimes, it's even more blatant than that. In fact, some of the most successful musical acts in history based huge chunks of their careers entirely on plagiarism.

5 Best and Worst SNL Movies

MacGruber is coming to theaters, in the grand tradition of Saturday Night Live skits being turned into movies. Okay, grand tradition is probably stretching it a bit. All right, it’s stretching it a lot. Many SNL-to-film remakes are bad. And “bad” is being kind. In total there have been ten films based on Saturday Night Live skits. Today, I rank them from worst to best. And there is a pretty huge gap between the good and the bad (you’ll note that I point out which are bad and which are good beside the title, and the bad outweighs the good) so bear with me. Put it this way: a good chunk of these movies are completely on YouTube and have yet to be taken down due to the film companies not caring. I watched most of these so you didn’t have to.
