9 Memorable Horror Movie Moments

There are those classic moments in film that we all remember. Who will ever forget when Dorothy opens her farm house door to Munchkin Land? TV shows will forever spoof the back bends in The Matrix, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a child of the 80s that doesn’t remember Tom Hanks playing on the giant FAO Schwartz foot piano in Big. While these are all great movie scenes (and I could go on forever), I’m not here to talk about feel good movies. Instead, I’m here to pull out the most memorable horror movie moments! For those of you that read my articles regularly, you know that horror is my preferred genre of film. Because of this, it was REALLY hard for me to pull out just a few of the best horror movie moments. However, if I didn’t start trimming down the list that I made to write this article, you’d still be reading this a week later.

10 U.S. Presidents Who Never Graduated From College

ur nation’s leaders carry the weight of the country on their shoulders, so it’s not unreasonable to expect them to have attained a higher educational level than the Average Joe. The current President of the United States, Barack Obama, is certainly no slouch in the academic department: he studied political science at Columbia University, majoring in international relations. In 1991 Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. However, some of the greatest presidents in US history did not set foot in an institute of higher learning, let alone graduate from one. Often, education was simply not an option for the following ten presidents. That said, through hard work and sheer determination – or an action-packed stint in the US Army – they managed to rise to the top. And though they may not have been college graduates themselves, they still realized the importance of education.

Fauna in a Galaxy Far, Far Away: 10 Awesome Creatures from Star Wars

It's no secret that I am a Star Wars fanatic. I have seen the movies a million times, watch The Clone Wars religiously, collect (and read) the comics, and have almost all of the novels. Among my items I have several R2-D2s, a stuffed Yoda (makes a great pillow), and God knows how many action figures. As I write this I am currently drinking coffee out of a Boba Fett mug. So to say that I am a fan is something of an understatement. I got to thinking about how many non-sentient critters live in the Galaxy Far, Far Away... and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Let me state that all of the "animals" presented here are (for the most part) considered non-sentient. Wookiees, Ewoks, Hutts, and the like will not be covered as they are intelligent, sentient beings--though some are definitely smarter than others.

7 Incredible Personal Stories About Mitt Romney That You May Not Know

Over the last few months, it has been absolutely stunning to see Mitt Romney, of all people, portrayed as some sort of greedy, ruthless, unfeeling corporate raider who plows over everyone who gets in his way so he can make a few dollars more.

7 Things Digg.com Drove Into the Ground

Digg, as we knew it, is dead. To make matters worse, Digg v4 is in complete chaos. Angry “power users” who were stripped of their adjective are attempting to fight back by rallying people to “Digg” articles from rival sites. At one point today, 12 of the 16 links on Digg’s front page were pointing to Reddit.com or related stories. The inmates are running the asylum (dot com). As what’s left of the Digg community struggles in vain to find funny pictures of cats and articles from Gawker.com, fear and panic are sure to set in. During this period of turmoil, many will long for a simpler time. But their nostalgia for “Old Digg” will be misplaced. While New Digg may or may not prove worthless, Old Digg had to die. The site had too much power, and was responsible for taking some of the greatest topics on the Internet and running them straight into the ground. Here are seven examples.

Here Are The 15 States With The Most Federal Firearm Licenses

Due to the increase in mass shootings in recent years, gun regulation has become an increasingly urgent and polarizing debate. In fact, some state government officials have been attempting to limit people’s access to guns even further, while others have attempted to weaken federal control over firearms “through so-called ‘nullification’ laws” according to NBC News .

10 Most Popular Suicide Spots on Earth

Suicide is recognized as the ultimate expression of despair. And even though the person making the decision to die may find some sense of peace, family and friends are left in a maelstrom of devastation and pain. According to the World Health Organization, there are over one million successful suicides every year – which works out as a death every 40 seconds. Ironically, these desperate acts of self-destruction are often carried out in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. Bridges and cliffs might seem like obvious choices to people who want to end it all, but in reality, leaping to your doom is often a horribly painful way to go. Jumping from a great height into water often leads to ruptured internal organs, broken limbs, a broken neck and, if the jumper survives long enough, death from drowning.

Although it isn’t a written rule, an “extra”—a background player in a movie or TV show—usually has no spoken lines. If a line, or a few lines, are spoken, the person is often referred to as a “bit player” instead of an extra. (If a major star or a “known” actor is an extra in a movie, their non-speaking appearance is called a “cameo.”) The famous people listed below all made one or more appearances as movie extras before they went on to bigger and better things.
