From 19th-century locomotives to ancient cities that previously lived only through legend, the ocean is a vast treasure chest filled with the gems of history.

The Quick 10: Where 10 Oscar Winners Keep the Little Guy

10 More Worthwhile Things The Margaret Thatcher Funeral Could Have Funded

Well, love her or hate her, the Margaret Thatcher funeral is behind us now, and even the most ardent Thatcher supports might be keen to sniff at the fact that an estimated £10 million was spent on her funeral. As I watched the funeral unfold on TV, I thought to myself, “aren’t there a lot of better ways this could be spent?” Of course, the first thought might be to subsidise local councils that are struggling or something, but not for me. All I was thinking about was how that money could have been appropriated in the good name of entertainment, and how I would have much preferred the £10m being pumped into revitalising a dead TV show or a video game sequel I always wanted to play.

10 Websites To Download Older Versions Of Software

true of life. It’s even truer when it comes to software. Before you can say – “what a great piece of software!” the version changes. It takes just a click to uninstall the older software version and download the spanking newer variant. The memory of the older software gets left behind as a just a registry trace somewhere. It also has a word of its own – Abandonware. Though meant for old and discarded games, it also covers older version software. When it comes to technology, the speed of change is so rapid that we don’t really miss the older versions. Perhaps, with applications like operating systems and Office suites, we do fall into habits that sometimes are difficult to give up. But the changeover to the newer version of the tools is just a matter of time. But just sometimes the older version software comes back into the scheme of things.

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Talk to the Police

If the police are talking to you, it’s because they suspect you have committed a crime. If they have detained you, it’s because they already have enough evidence to arrest you and they want to see if you will admit it and thus, give them an even stronger case against you.If they have evidence to arrest you for a crime, they will. If they don’t, they won’t. It’s as simple as that.Talking to them or not talking to them won’t make a difference! No one has ever “talked his way out of” an arrest. If the police have enough evidence to arrest, they will. If you deny that you committed the crime, they will not believe you. They already have evidence suggesting that you committed the crime. They’ll assume you’re just doing what every criminal does in denying the offense. It will not prevent you from getting arrested.This is completely contrary to popular belief.

10 Commencement Speakers You Wish You'd Had

Graduation is an exciting time, but let's face it: Commencement speeches aren't always memorable. A completely unscientific poll of the GOOD office revealed that almost none of us recall our college commencement speakers, or what they said to us (although we suspect it was something like, "You've worked hard! Yay!"). So here are 10 commencement speakers—and their inspiring, funny, and just plain on-point words of wisdom—that we wish we'd heard on graduation day.

10 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Bond

When young Ian Fleming was working in British Naval intelligence during World War II, he once told a friend he planned to write “The Mother of all Spy Stories.” I, for one, think he succeeded. The James bond series of films is likely the longest running and successful series in cinema history, and why not? James Bond is the kind of guy who every guy wants to be. Suave, smart, cool under pressure and utterly unshakable. While just about everybody has seen a James Bond film, or read a James Bond book, there’s still plenty of interesting anecdotes that can pass by even the hardcore fans.

10 Flying Cars That Are Just Around the Corner

When people talk about the future, there are probably three things that they consider to be truly futuristic: cures for all diseases (to make sex risk free), virtual reality (to make sex effortless) and flying cars (to make sex more awesome). In terms of the latter, the possibility of quick, easy and faster flight would revolutionize cities and our lives as a whole the way automobiles did in the last 100 years. We’ve been working on the idea since before the Wright brothers had their 12 second money shot in 1903, but judging by the current offerings, it might be a little while longer before we get there.
