Top 10 Unnervingly Large Invertebrates
Coming from a country where the worst creature I have to face is an earwig (why must they live in the vegetable patch!?), whenever I go abroad I am always startled by insects, bugs and all manner of other invertebrates that the world has to offer. Coming from Britain I instinctively think of invertebrates as small and innocuous, but the more you study biology, the more this is proved to be false. This list is fairly personal as the term ‘unnerving’ is very subjective, but I hope there are some entries on this list which are new to you. Here is a list of the top ten startlingly large invertebrates in the world.
21 Awesome Fast Food Items Not Available In America
Sure America has a lot of problems right now but at the end of the day, we can always hang our hat on knowing that we undoubtedly have the best and most disgustingly amazing fast food in the world, right? Wrong. There is a whole other stratosphere of fast food in other countries around the world and none of these delicious items are available and might not ever be available in America. If that isn't enough to finally get you off your ass and do something to change things in this country, I don't know what is.

In 1944, Willys set about creating a civilian version of the US Army’s quarter-ton jeep. The first model available to the car-buying public, the CJ-2A (CJ-1 and CJ-2 were prototype designations), went on sale in July 1945, and its success would usher in other military-to-civilian transitions, notably Land Rover’s Series 1 (1948), Volkswagen’s Type 181 “Thing” (1968) and General Motors’ Hummer H1 (1992). These vehicles’ heroic reputation and all-conquering capability have cemented their appeal among all manner of outdoors enthusiasts, hip-hop personalities and playboy despots. In their spirit, we present a septet of military trucks a civilian can buy – sans weaponry – along with a look at a vehicle that is gunning to become the next US military truck.

If you’re thinking of a career in forensic science, make sure you know the truth behind these 10 myths spread by TV before you get in too deep.
