10 Purr-fect Vacations For Cat Lovers

These quirky museums, theme parks and circus acts feed our collective cat obsession. Stephanie Harwin, who writes the cat-obsessed blog Catsparella, will go to great lengths to get her feline fix. On her quest to fulfill a lifelong dream, visiting Japan's Hello Kitty theme park, Harwin endured a bout of severe food poisoning, a language barrier and a long journey to reach her happy place. Japan is the ultimate travel destination for cat enthusiasts and Hello Kitty is just the beginning. Tokyo has become famous for its cat cafés, where you can hang out with the furry creatures, and each February brings the celebration of "Nyan Nyan Nyan Day" (a name inspired by the sound cats make).

The 25 Best American Canned Beers

January 24th is Beer Can Appreciation Day. And it seems like people, especially brewers and beer geeks, have been continuing to appreciate the beer can more and more in the past few years. First, in the 1990s, came the craft beer revolution. Then, for some reason, there was a second craft beer revolution. That one worked better because now it seems like you can find a craft beer on every store shelf and a brewery in every neighborhood. So with more and more breweries popping up, brewers continue to seek ways to stand out in a crowded market — which is part of the reason we’ve recently seen the “Canned Beer Revolution.” Yes, many other causes for the Canned Beer Revolution exist. The most important change is that canning itself has become easier. About a decade ago, small batch canning was barely even possible. It wasn’t until a Canadian company created a smaller, accessible system that breweries started to acknowledge the other benefits of the can as well.

30 MPG: Ten Fun Cars That Won’t Break The Bank At The Pump

Since we don’t think we’re ever going to see truly “cheap” gas again, we figure it’s high time to trade in that gas guzzler on something a little sportier. For the first time ever, we’ve been able to find 10 fun-to-drive cars that all net at least 30 mpg on the highway. Each of these offers truly impressive thrills for enthusiasts. Our list was a little longer until we started throwing out cars like the Kia Optima Turbo and the Buick Regal Turbo. Sure, they might pack decent power, but they’re just not the kind of cars that will draw attention at your neighborhood car show. They’re fun on a different kind of scale. Instead, we chose to concentrate on cars that will truly delight enthusiasts. Our criteria was simple: Each car had to net at least 30 mpg on the highway and each has to be genuinely fun to drive. We didn’t necessarily pick the most eco-friendly model in each lineup – we picked the ones we’d most want to enjoy on a closed course or on a winding country road.

10 Unusual Ways to Live Longer

Just how much do you want to live a long, long life? You’re already eating properly (well, most of the time), you keep fit (when you remember) and you don’t smoke, having given up successfully many times. What other lengths are you prepared to go to? In the past, people tried many different methods to promote their longevity, some more pleasant than others. Did you know, for example, that Taoist sexual practices, if performed correctly, are supposed to confer immortality? Over the centuries humans have tried to live longer by eating such things as rattlesnakes, caterpillar fungus and bee pollen. They’ve drunk mercury, tea mushroom extract and colostrum, the first milk of new mothers.

13 Works of Art Made With Teeth

Where would we be without teeth? Haggard and full of soup – that’s where we’d be. Funnily enough, the culinary world would not be the only sphere of interest to suffer were we all to awaken tomorrow to find the tooth fairy had been on a pixie dust-fuelled rampage, and left us all as gummy as a Haribo factory. The art scene, believe it or not, would also be reeling from this terrifying scenario.

The 20 Most Influential Americans of All Time

The legend of the man is sheltered these days behind high fences of respect. Were the real Washington on hand today, that might not be the case, and therein may lie a lesson. By our modern measures, George Washington did not read the right books: he relished how-to-do-it texts, with their new ideas on the use of manure, turning soil and animal husbandry. He did not delve very far into art, philosophy or science. Nor did he speak foreign languages (Thomas Jefferson spoke or read five). Washington never traveled to Europe, while Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Jefferson all spent years there. Aloof and remote, meticulous in his wardrobe, he was not one of the boys, and he was never an accomplished public speaker.
