The 10 Best Lightsaber Mash Ups

The Star Wars kid has gotten a lot of shit over the years, mainly because he’s not a professional. He simply didn’t have the training necessary to pull off that fight sequence. On the other hand, there are lots of professionals who do have the training and simply lack the means to wield it. I’m talking about people like Aragorn, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Westley. If somehow you could only put a lightsaber in these fearsome warriors hands…Ugh, blogging. What am I even talking about? Let’s just be ourselves, you guys. I found a bunch of clips on YouTube where people took fight sequences from other movies and overlaid lightsabers on top of them using magic, and they are hilarious, and you’re gonna love it.

The 25 Worst Meals in Movie History

Though movies often ignore the day-to-day upkeep of the body—you only see characters go to the bathroom if a dinosaur is going to eat them, you only see someone in bed if they're going to bone—cinema has provided us with plenty of meals to linger on. Some present food in such a sumptuous manner, you want to climb through the screen. (Raise your hand if you've ever wanted to go to prison just to eat like Henry Hill does in GoodFellas.) Other films present food the way it always ends up: bad. With vomit bags in hand, we sat down at cinematic tables to find the worst meals. Some are terrible because the food is gross, others find their awfulness in the situation.

Top 10 Veterans Day Songs

I’ve always thought that the best way to support our troops is to make every effort to keep them out of harm’s way. That means avoiding unnecessary wars and engaging in combat only as a true last resort. In this vein, here are my Top Ten Veterans Day Songs paying tribute to those who serve. The list is highly debatable, largely because songs about war and attendant suffering cut across all musical genres. Old-timers will rightly wonder about the omission of classics like “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?,“ “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Imagine” and “Give Peace A Chance.” Others will fairly say I’ve neglected an important sub-genre of vintage heavy metal antiwar anthems (think Metallica’s 1989 classic, “One,”) while also giving short-shrift to the rich history of punk rock treatment of the subject.

Whether you’re starting your career or looking to improve your present one, you need to start looking out for yourself. After all, if you’re not for yourself, who will look out for you?

6 Infamous Arsonists and How They Got Caught

Over 50 fires gutted cars in Los Angeles this past weekend. While most of the damage was limited to vehicles, some of the flames caused destruction to adjacent property, including to a home that once belonged to Jim Morrison. LA has not experienced this many fires since the 1992 riots. On Monday police detained a person of interest, 24-year-old German national Harry Burkhart, who was seen on security footage near one of the fires. While some people start fires for insurance money or to cover up crimes, arsonists set fires to feel control—and, in many cases, sexual excitement. Profilers say arsonists have few close relationships; they start blazes to feel important. Many only have a high school education, but some of the most prolific showed a surprisingly high degree of intelligence.

The Top 10 Most Gerrymandered Congressional Districts in the United States

Gerrymander: It’s a dirty word. Everyone knows it’s a political insult, but not everyone understands exactly what it means. And even many of those who know what gerrymandering is don’t fully grasp how it completely dominates American politics. Gerrymandering is dirty politics, but it’s all-pervasive across the American landscape. You who are reading this, right now, are likely to live in a gerrymandered congressional district. And you’re either happy with the arrangement, or blithely unaware and just don’t care. Because few people ever complain or even think about their district boundaries.
