10 Celebrities You Think Are Dead But Are Still Alive

How many times have you seen a celebrity's death report on television or the Internet and thought to yourself, “I thought he (or she) was already dead!”? Or maybe you've told a friend or family member that a certain celebrity is dead, only to find out he or she is still alive? How do you think that feels – to be a celebrity that's so low on the celebrity hierarchy totem pole, people don't even know you're alive? Sometimes, of course, rumors like this start on the Internet and just blossom inexplicably. These types of rumors can even jump-start a stalled career (just look at Betty White!) Usually, though, it's a sad state of affairs if you're popular for being dead but you're not.

5 Reasons Why You Never Hear Back After Applying For A Job

People often wonder why they never hear anything back after they hit ‘send’ on the email with a resume attached or on the on-line job application. If you’re very lucky, you might have a preliminary email exchange with a recruiter and then never hear from them again. It’s a depressing experience, and one which also casts a shadow on the hiring company’s reputation. So why does it happen? Is it you, is it them, or is it just something every candidate must prepare for in the hiring process?

5 Mistakes That Hollywood Blockbusters Should Stop Making

There is a moment in Pan where Peter arrives in Neverland, and the audience discovers that it’s filled with miners—most of them children. They greet the new recruits from Peter’s orphanage with a cry of music, a boisterous rendition of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Then Hugh Jackman’s Blackbeard arrives on the scene and joins in on the chorus, jumping up onto the rails of his pirate ship and throwing his arms open wide, like he wants to hug the world. I really wish I had made all of that up. Pan was not good. In fact, I can’t really call this a “review” because all I came away with was a headache, and a list of things that should never happen in the movie.

10 White People Who Inexplicably Became Ninjas

Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja, is an ancient, closely guarded tradition of stealth, martial arts and assassination that is only taught to the most skilled of Japanese warriors… and pretty much any white dude who happens to be in the neighborhood.

Here are 10 of ‘em.

Top 10 '80s Montages

Trey Parker and Matt Stone put it best in Team America: World Police – if you want to get good at something fast, you’re going to need a montage. And while Russian filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein originally pioneered the classic editing technique back in the 1920s, it wasn’t perfected until the 1980s (apparently the montage could’ve used its own montage). From then on though, it was everywhere, whenever characters needed to get a lot done in a limited amount of screen time, whether it was training for the big fight, falling in love, planning a heist, or just trying on clothes.

Best Star Trek: The Next Generation Episodes, According to You

tar Trek: The Next Generation tried "to envision a future better than the present that we live in," said reader MikkiTii, one of two winners of our Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season One Blu-ray giveaway. "Few ever really tried that before, and no one I can think of has tried since. Instead we have only endless visions of dystopia, killer robots, post-apocalyptic suffering or terror descended from the stars." "I watched the very first episode in 1987 with my father," added reader oldskul68, who also won. "My father's gone now, but watching The Next Generation with my son reminds me of those times, 25 years ago, when me and my dad would step out of reality for an hour and dream of a world where humankind was united, and the problems we face today no longer exist."

7 Uses For Diatomaceous Earth

When hard-shelled algae called diatoms fossilize, they create a sedimentary rock that is easy to crumble called diatomaceous earth. According to the National Pesticide Information Center, diatomaceous earth makes up 26 percent of the earth's crust by weight. What do we like about it? It ticks off all our boxes: it's natural, it's easy to use, has multiple uses, it doesn't cause cancer (unless you stick your nose in it and breathe in for one hour every day - but that's the case for any powdery substance that you breathe in for long periods of time) and, as far as we can tell, it isn't being over-exploited.
