On Thanksgiving, more than any other day of the year, Americans sit down and eat the same meal as their neighbors and countrymen. It’s tradition, after all!

10 Famously Exonerated Death Row Inmates

Each of the ten men on this list was wrongly convicted, sentenced to death, and exonerated years later. We can’t even begin to imagine the kind of psychological damage spending time in prison must cause when you know that you’re innocent but practically no one believes you.

In some sense, these men will never escape the stigma attached to them due to the crimes of which they were wrongfully accused.

Empires from Greece, Rome and Persia to Napoleonic France and Colonial England have all been built on a backbone of superior firepower. From Roman’s peasants fearing Hannibal’s elephants to Irish farmers dreading the sight of Viking warships on the horizon, from Paul Revere’s “The British are coming!” to the 1950’s “Duck and Cover” drills, weaponry has haunted our nightmares for as long as it’s fueled the dreams of boys and conquerors.

Top 5 Hottest Pro-Gun Women

While we’re not typically pig-headed objectifiers of woman, in the wake of a recent “Hot Hunter” contest (see video above) conducted by youtube star and avid outdoors-woman Kendall Jones the time has come for us to wear that hat, albeit reluctantly. See, we’re feminists. To quote Gloria Steinem, “A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.” So, if they’re judging us based on our beauty and ranking us accordingly, well, it’s only fair that we return the favor.
