7 Absolutely Insane Animal Defense Mechanisms

Scientists recently recorded footage of a never-before-seen defense mechanism deployed by a small species of deep-sea squid: When threatened, the squid attacks its predator and then pulls away, breaking off the tip of its own arm and leaving it behind as a distraction. The arm continues to glow and twitch, creating a diversion and enabling the squid to escape. But this squid isn’t the only creature with a bizarre way of defending itself. Here are several other ways animals try to save their own lives, or the lives of their comrades.

The 25 Worst Passwords of 2013

“123456” is finally getting some time in the spotlight as the world's worst password, after spending years in the shadow of “password.” Security firm Splashdata, which every year compiles a list of the most common stolen passwords, found that “123456” moved into the number one slot in 2013. Previously, “password” had dominated the rankings. The change in leadership is largely thanks to Adobe, whose major security breach in October affected upwards of 48 million users. A list of passwords from the Adobe breach had “123456” on top, followed by “123456789” and “password.” The magnitude of the breach had a major impact on Splashdata's results, explaining why “photoshop” and “adobe123” worked their way onto this year's list.

10 Tips for Staying Married Forever

My husband and I will soon celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. We got married way too young and the odds were probably stacked against us and yet, here we are so many years later and we're still together. We're not celebrities, not wealthy, not in the spotlight and not any different than anybody else who has picked a lifetime partner. We've been through some seriously great times together but we've also been through some shit and I mean real-life shit that could be way too much for some couples to withstand. So what's the key to our longevity? It's pretty simple. We're happy together, we like each other's company and we're still genuinely in love. That accounts for most of why we've been able to stick it out while other couples can't.

7 Automakers With The Best Car Warranties

When shopping for a new car, an important part of sizing up a deal financially should be to determine the value of the car warranties. Auto companies traditionally offer basic coverage, which covers repairs and defects for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, some companies are offering warranties for much longer than the three-year 36,000-mile standard, and savvy shoppers can take advantage. These buyers may benefit from having a lower total cost of ownership. There are generally at least four types of new-car warranties.

The 10 Toughest Motor Races In The World

Car racing used to be one of the most dangerous things a person could do, period. Around the turn of the 20th Century, drivers would attempt to wheel two-ton beasts across hundreds of miles of unpaved roads, sitting higher than a school bus and riding on wagon wheels. The cars were so unreliable that drivers had to bring a mechanic with them, sometimes repairing the car while it was in motion. A lot of people died. So that's where modern grand prix racing has its roots. That tradition continues today with off road races, which take weeks to cover hundreds of miles of completely unmaintained terrain. Thanks to modern safety equipment, medical care, and rescue vehicles deaths are way down, but not gone. We hope to see no more deaths in motor racing in the future, but as of today they stand as a reminder of how tough bike and car racing can be.

Ramen Hacks: 30 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Instant Noodles

Ramen in the U.S. has come a long way. Once known only in its 10-for-a-dollar instant-lunch form—a staple of offices and dorm rooms all around the '80s and '90s—high-end real ramen shops are springing up left and right on both coasts and everywhere in between. As a half-Japanese kid in the '80s, I grew up eating instant ramen at least once a week, and it still holds a special place in my gut. The real stuff is great, but sometimes only the add-hot-water pack will do. That said, my tastes have changed and expanded considerably over the years, and sometimes that little flavoring packet just isn't enough. As such, I've spent a lot of time devising ways to upgrade my ramen in cheap, easy ways. Ghetto gourmet, if you will. As a card-carrying member of the Ramen Transmogrification Society of Greater New York,* it is my duty, my honor, and my privilege to share with you some of our methods and recipes.

The 10 Most Beautiful Plus Size Models

The modeling industry may not be particularly kind to women of average size, but that hasn't stopped these beautiful women. For years, critics have railed against the "unhealthy messages" that the stick-straight models in women's magazines send to readers. It is unfortunately telling that any model over a size 10 is commonly referred to as "plus size," especially when one considers that the average American woman wears a dress size of 11 to 13. That doesn't mean there aren't beautiful women whose curves deserve celebration, however.
