40 Famous Manuscripts That Were Rejected At First

It is one of the weird quirks of literature that people who don't necessarily have the skills to write epic masterpieces themselves are put in charge of deciding what gets published and what gets canned.

And yet, from time to time, editors make some of the absolute worst decisions that future generations look back on and say, "What on earth were they thinking?" Persistence paid off for the authors of these 40 manuscripts who refused to take no for an answer and were rewarded in the end.

Top 10 NFL Undrafted Free Agents

Many of these players have enjoyed solid careers and/or made a big impact. Last season, the only rookie to rush for 1,000-plus yards was Tampa Bay's LeGarrette Blount (originally signed out of college by the Titans), while the league's leading rusher in 2010 was previously undrafted RB Arian Foster. When the draft was shortened to eight rounds in 1993 and now to its current of state of seven rounds in 1994, it was far more common for rookie free agents to make the team and an impact. You'll notice that I stay away from kickers because they are rarely drafted these days, hence no mention of the extraordinary Adam Vinatieri.

10 Neat Hermit Crab Houses

Hermit crabs are weird little critters with soft lower bodies that use the discarded shells of other animals for protection. They have co-evolved with other marine invertebrates for centuries so that the discarded shells of other animals perfectly fit their own hermit crab bodies. If you ask me, they are miracles of evolution (but not “miracles” in the Juggalo sense). But some hermit crabs have found unconventional and neat homes, and I thought I’d share are few I found with you here.

15 Big Ways The Internet Is Changing Our Brain

Noted science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov predicted that one day, we'd "have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries where anyone can ask any question and be given answers, be given reference materials, be something you're interested in knowing, from an early age, however silly it might seem to someone else," and with this appliance, be able to truly enjoy learning instead of being forced to learn mundane facts and figures. His insight has proven to be amazingly accurate, as we now live in a world with the Internet, where nearly the entire wealth of human knowledge can live at our fingertips or even in our pockets. Such an amazing feat, of course, doesn't happen without impacting our lives, and scientists have begun to note that the Internet has not only served to fulfill our brains' curiosities, but also rewired them. So what exactly is the Internet doing to our brains? Read on to find out.
