Married... With Children’s 20 Greatest Sports Moments

Each week, Sports On TV looks at the 20 (or so) greatest sports-related moments from television shows that aren't always about sports. This week we tackle the low-brow 1987-97 FOX classic 'Married... With Children', and honestly, it's the closest we've come to saying f**k it and just writing about sports shows. MWC featured more sports moments and guest appearances than almost any other sitcom, and even featured a sports moments clip-show in the middle of its 10th season. Instead of just finding that on YouTube and posting it here, we've put together our own list. The entire run of 'Married...' is currently streaming on Netflix, so if you read about Al Bundy punching a heavyset lady in the stomach or beating a bunch of old people at track and field and want to check it out, you can do so there.

10 Fascinating Facts About Cats

People love their pets. Be it a cat, dog, hamster or goldfish, most U.S. residents have some kind of non-humanoid companion sharing their home. According to a survey by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA), however, cats win hands down when it comes to the sheer numbers that reside in American abodes. Ken Hubbard is an antique dealer with the company 2wice As Nice in Wheat Ridge, CO, a suburb of Denver. He's also the owner of two cats pictured above: both black American Shorthairs, one is known as Lace (left) and the other is Bear.

9 Ways Geeks Have Inherited the Earth

It’s safe to say that we now live in a geek’s world. One only has to look at the way gadgets and the Internet dominate every aspect of modern existence. Geeks are essential to the normal functioning of billions of lives daily. Without them, civilization as we know it would come to a screeching halt. Just imagine a world without something like the Internet — entire businesses would freeze, failed GPS systems would delay countless travelers, unemployment would shoot up even more, and people everywhere would commit mass suicide. Although we don’t like to think of it this way, geeks are king and pretty much rule our lives whether we like it or not. Here are 9 ways geeks have inherited the earth.

Beer Experts Say These Are The 20 Best Beers In The World

Two Stanford computer scientists have demonstrated that beer geeks have great taste. Stanford University computer science post-doc Julian McAuley and assistant professor Jure Leskovec released a paper earlier this year outlining how our tastes change as we consume more products and gain more expertise.

5 Common Misconceptions About Ray Lewis’ Murder Trial

Ray Lewis seems poised to ride into the sunset like Jerome Bettis if the Ravens win in the linebacker’s second championship game. Lewis looms large in a Super Bowl without superstars and gets the reflected glow of the big game. That spotlight exposes some gnarly fissures on him; some scabbed over scars of whispers and rumor. Self righteous types cluck their tongues to this day and mouth the word: “Murderer.” His trial was thirteen years ago, so memories faded. When facts fall out of the mouths of commentators, there is a fast and loose quality to them. I have read articles recently shaded to indicate Lewis’ implication in the murder and some that are flat out false.

Top 10 Reasons the Newspaper is Dying

Looking back upon the heyday of the newspaper industry, images of angry cigar-smoking editors, journalists with fedoras carrying “press” cards and sharpened pencils, and little Dickensian children on the street corner shouting “Read all about it!” are evoked. That was back when nothing MORE than newspapers existed, that is in the form of competition. Yes, the paper was as cutting edge as the refrigerator back when the nation relied on its local street urchin to find out what was new in the world. Nowadays, in spite of a good many paperboys who regularly find summer employment, it’s the tech-savvy youth that are primarily responsible for the undoing of anachronistic traditions. You’d think an industry whose very purpose is to keep regular tabs on the status quo would be able to adapt to an ever-changing environment, but such was apparently not the case as an industry of old dogs failed to learn any new tricks (instead they just continued licking themselves). Here’s a look at the top ten reasons why not all traditions are timeless, and particularly why the newspaper industry is folding under itself (and being held in place with a rubber band).

How 5 of the World's Coolest New Bridges Stay Upright

Last week, we looked at the Institution of Structural Engineers' picks for the best structures of the year. But its annual Structural Awards also has a bridge-only category, the shortlist of which is a great survey of the state of the art in bridge design. In some ways, bridge design is far more experimental than any other. The race to build further, faster, for less is still driving incredible innovations in the field, just like it did at the dawn of the suspension bridge in the 19th century. Below, take a look at five of the nominees for the highway and railway bridge category and the designs that help them defy gravity.

7 Fake Trailers That Got Made Into Real Movies

With a headline like that you may be wondering what makes a movie trailer fake as opposed to… ah not fake? Before you conger up images of flaky actors, silicone and cardboard props, wait, that’s every movie ever made, (HA HA – notice the use of the sacred double HA), A fake trailer refers to a “real” movie trailer that advertises a film that did not exist, and was never planned to be created. In each case below, the trailer came first and only after the audience went “ape shit” did the actual movie get made. It’s a bit bassakwards, which is why it’s sooooo cool. It’s like art imitating previous but not serious art to become more art.. or life art.. or just check them out below.

25 Incredibly Powerful Lightning Strikes
