Top 10 Fictional One-Eyed Characters

In literature, film and television, many characters grace the screen with one eye. Dashing characters such as Aughra from The Dark Crystal, Long John Silver, and many others have enlightened us to the fact that you needn’t two to make a difference.

CHARACTERS BORN OR MADE WITH ONE EYE. Not ones who lost an eye. That list will come later. Did we miss your favorite? Name it in the comments and call us retarded.

Church Bells To Doorbells: 8 Churches Turned Into Homes

Churches are some of society’s most stylistically beautiful buildings. A large amount of building design comes down to functionality and affordability, so churches, built for a spiritual purpose rather than a materialistic one, tend to include elements that highlight beauty and detail. When these churches grow old, or are purchased, they can then be renovated into amazing houses that uniquely introduce religious elements into a pedestrian environment. Willis Greenhalgh Architects, known better as WG Architects, transformed this Brisbane church into a gorgeous home full of light. Built in 1867, this is a heritage site, and thus required a very delicate renovation.

6 People Who'll Inspire You This Year

Motivation is a tricky thing. We need it in every aspect of our lives: to get up in the morning and go to work, to start (and finish) that 10-page paper, to do laundry after a long day. Yet the motivation to get healthy often eludes us. It hides in the form of excuses -- excuses for why we can't go to the gym or cook a healthy meal, why we can't get enough sleep or make time for ourselves.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Goodfellas

OK, fine: so maybe you already know a few things about Goodfellas. It’s certainly a film that’s easy to become obsessed with, not to mention the nostalgic frenzy surrounding the 25th anniversary of Martin Scorsese‘s iconic gangster drama that began back in April at the Tribeca Film Festival reunion panel.
