11 Things We Can Expect in the Future According to Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Science fiction has always brought us interesting views of our potential future. Some of them are compelling and hopeful, like Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future in Star Trek. Others are dark and foreboding like Space: Above and Beyond. Then there are series that seem to combine the two like Babylon 5 or Earth: Final Conflict. However, in all of television based science fiction, there is no universe quite as unique as the one featured in the '70s "hit" Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. For those unacquainted with the series, Astronaut Buck Rogers is a stranger in a strange land, having been accidentally cryogenically frozen while on a "Deep Space probe" in 1987. Having been blown into a very wide orbit, Buck plays the role of Popsicle for the next 500 years, until being discovered by the Draconians near Earth in the year 2491.

7 Times When It's Okay To Dumpster Dive

Back in our salad days, my husband and I outfitted much of our New Orleans apartment with dumpster dive goodies. We found our coffee table in the trash behind a defunct Japanese restaurant. Some serious sanding removed the cigarette burns and -- presto! -- we had a unique centerpiece for our living room. We next culled a wrought-iron headboard from the flea market dumpster. It's pre-antiqued look was ideal for our French Quarter home. Soon our walls were covered with posters, tapestries and hand-woven rugs rescued from other trash bins. All these finds, not to mention many an unusual nick and knack, gave our slave-quarters apartment a unique flair for nearly nothing. We were just kids, justifiably proud of our dumpster dive finds. Many years later, however, I still find it difficult to pass a well-stuffed trash barrel without peeking in, particularly during the spring days when students in our college town are trashing unwanted belongings.

3 Health Foods That Really Aren't

You may not spend your days scoffing pizza and cheeseburgers, but there are many foods that sound pretty healthy, even diet-friendly, but when you delve a little deeper, they are quite the opposite. Wonder around your local supermarket and check out the nutrition labels on many of the products available -- it's enough to put your head in a spin.
