12 More Water Vehicles to Float Your Boat

First there was the guitar boat, the wooden Ferrari boat and the ‘spider that ate San Francisco’. Now come 12 even cooler and crazier watercraft designs and concepts from super-high-tech water-cleaning ‘whales’ to the lowest of the low tech – duct tape and pumpkins. Perhaps not all of these awesome boat, hydrofoil and jet ski designs hold water, but they’re definitely interesting eye candy.

20 Awesome Gun Rooms You Should Be Jealous Of

What does your gun room look like? Let’s face it, a lot of us don’t have enough firearms to warrant giving them their own room—not to mention giving up valuable house space! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t plan for when that day comes. Here are 20 innovative, luxurious, or just practical gun rooms that you can take notes from. Some look comfy enough to relax in while you drink a glass of single malt scotch whisky—if you have one of these rooms, you can probably afford some high-end Macallan—while others are little more than cabinets or corners stuffed full of guns.

22 Awesome Air Traffic Control Towers Across the World

Air Traffic Control Tower lovers of the world unite. Here is a selection of ten of the best and more unusual in the world, including the one at Los Angeles above. Whether your own favorite is listed here, these structures have functionality and are designed to fit their own particular environment but also have a strange beauty all their own. Air Traffic Control Towers are not as ubiquitous as you may think. Most people when asked would say that every airport has one, but this is simply because their height and shape had wormed its way in to the general consciousness, due not least to the plethora of disaster movies centered on airports. It is only the busiest of airports that have towers, such as the one above at Haneda airport which serves the Tokyo metropolis.

Top 10 World Cup Goals

They don't call The World Cup the "biggest sporting event in the world" because of the size of the stadiums. For one month every four years, all eyes are trained on a single nation as superstars, upstarts and fading veterans from all corners of the planet converge on a few fields of grass to negotiate global football supremacy. But regardless of who emerges victorious (isn't it always one of like, seven countries?), in the end it's all about the World Cup goals. North Americans have failed to adopt football as their own because of a decided lack of scoring and a perceived stagnancy that operates in direct opposition to the run-and-gun style of the NBA, NHL and NFL (sorry baseball). So for those out there still on the fence about the world's most popular sport, the following 10 World Cup goals should be requisite viewing. Here are our favorite examples of 10 footballers who seized the moment on the world's grandest stage and didn't let go until the ball was in the back of the net.

11 Brand New Unwritten Laws of Life

Yesterday, I was leafing through a book I'd received as a gift a while back. It's called "Unwritten Laws: The Unofficial Rules of Life" and features hundreds of famous and not-so-famous laws like Cameron's Rule of Etiquette. And as I read through, I decided I wanted to take my own crack at writing up some of my own. Here are my 11 original contributions to the unofficial, unwritten laws of life. (Which, ya know, are no longer unwritten since I'm writing them down, but whatever, it's an idiom.)

10 Reasons 2011 Should and Will Begin the Apocalypse

Every year, without fail, commonly recurring natural disasters, stormy weather conditions, changes in animal behavior, and even oddly shaped clouds in the sky prompt a new slew of lunatics to claim that end time is nigh. It’s almost as if — wait, it’s exactly the case that most of these people are biding their time, excitedly twiddling their thumbs in anticipation of the moment when Jesus defends from the sky to suck them up with a giant vacuum. That, or the prophet has ulterior motives, typically known as ‘brainwashing people’ and ‘creating distractions’. But forget logic; 2011 is the real beginning of the end! Here’s why.

6 Classic Movie Monsters Most Likely to Get Ruined Next

One thing gone relatively unmentioned in all the nonsense surrounding the Twilight phenomenon, is it’s reinvention, yet again, of that classic movie monster, the vampire. Indeed, when you consider the Twilight books, those ridiculous Wesley Snipes movies, the less ridiculous but much sadder Anne Rice books and that one cereal, you realize that vampires, in one form or another, have been moping around for decades, quietly stealing our skinny teenage girls. This runs parallel with the bizarre resurgence of interest in zombies in recent years. From 28 Days Later, to Shawn of the Dead, to the half dozen different video games that have all been released in the last couple years, zombies have exploded onto the pop culture landscape like so many grievous shotgun wounds. I’m certainly not the first person to point out Hollywood’s fascination with eating its own poop and regurgitating it, but I am probably amongst the first to phrase it like that. Yet I can’t figure out the sudden refound interest in zombies.

The 7 Most Incredible Telescopes In Existence

The biggest telescope dish right now is at the Arecibo Observatory of Puerto Rico. This dish took three years to build (1960-1963) and, clocking in at about 20 acres in size, has enjoyed a 50-year reign as the largest telescope dish. The gaping depth of the bowl makes the dish much more sensitive, so scientists using the telescope can collect as much data in minutes as smaller telescopes could in hours.

Top 10 Mechanic Scams

We have a lot of respect for competent, honest, highly skilled auto technicians. Working on modern vehicles demands unprecedented talent and training, and an advanced computer science degree doesn’t hurt either. Have you looked under the hood of a car lately? A career at NASA could be a stepping stone to diagnosing some automotive issues. Then there are the shysters that perpetuate stereotypes. They know all the old mechanic scams and routinely sell premature or unnecessary parts and services. It’s bad enough they bleed you for extra money wherever they can, but they’re also screwing with your ride. Whether that’s by design or incompetence, you could face more repairs, a breakdown or even a wreck.

10 Well-Known Television Actors Who Have Directed Lousy, Forgettable Feature Films

After it was announced that Henry Winkler would be playing Jean-Ralphio's Dad in Parks and Recreation, I ended up looking up Winkler on Wikipedia just out of curiousity. His Wikipedia entry, however, triggered some terrible, terrible memories of Henry Winker's stabs at directing feature films. Great actor, funny guy, probably one of the nicest people on the planet, but damn, the man cannot direct a movie. You may recall, for instance, Cop and a Half with Burt Reynolds (17 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) or Memories of Me with Billy Crystal, which made only $4 million at the box office. (Winkler also made a TV movie, A Smoky Mountain Christmas, with Dolly Parton and Lee Majors). Of course, after having the memory of Cop and a Half triggered, I jumped into the rabbit hole and found ten more well-known television actors who took stabs at feature film directing with disastrous results.
