15 Sporting Heroes Unfamiliar to Americans

Itís a common fact, although some will deny it, that most people favor their own nation, or even continent, sometimes to the extreme. America for example, awards Oscar, Grammy and Emmy trophies to mainly Americans, yet they claim that these are international awards. One would expect this to only apply in the entertainment industry, however this is also the case in the sporting world. For example, Football, which is, without a doubt, the most popular international sport, completely gets ignored by the US, due to Americaís lack of achievements (this also applies to Rugby, Cricket, Formula 1 and many other international sports).

From koala bears to cud-chewing cows, we canít get enough of the animal kingdom. But some of us take our appreciation of animals a little bit too faróby combining it with the love of a good wind-up. Here are 10 of the best animal hoaxes. The world of inspirational email forwards isnít exactly renowned for its rigorous commitment to accuracy. But in 2010, a truly amazing story and image began circulating that actually did seem to check out. The email referred to an article in the respected San Francisco Chronicle, telling the story of a female humpback whale who had become trapped in a web of crab-fishing lines. When a local environmental group successfully freed her, the whale swum around and nudged each diver individually, as if she was thanking them. What really set the story apart was the majestic picture that accompanied it, showing the whale extending a flipper as if to shake her saviorís hand.

9 Comic-Book Costumes That Actually Look Good In Movies

The biggest miracle about Iron Man 2 so far is that Black Widow's skintight jumpsuit looks decent. Often, superhero costumes from comics are just ridiculous on the big screen. Here are 10 other comic-to-movie costume translations that actually work. It's easy to think of superhero costumes that have looked ridiculous on film ó most of them have. A lot of comic-book costumes really only work in two dimensions, and especially many superheroine costumes would be a bizarre disaster if a flesh-and-blood woman tried to do any action scenes in them. Even the relatively sane comic-book costumes often fail to make the jump to movies, though ó for my money, there has never been a non-absurd Batsuit on screen, including in the two Nolan films. I considered expanding this list to include television, but I honestly couldn't think of an example of a comic-book character costume that didn't look at least somewhat ridiculous in its television version.

8 Ugly Sins of the Catholic Church

Did the Catholic Bishops wince last week when their leader, anti-contraception Cardinal Timothy Dolan, was exposed for paying pedophiles to disappear? One can only hope. After all, these are men who claim to speak for God. They have direct access to the White House, where they regularly weigh in on issues ranging from military policy to bioethics, and they expect us all to listen Ė not because of relevant expertise or elected standing, but because of their moral authority. Ahem. If pedophile payouts werenít enough to convince you that this ďmoralĒ authority is often anything but moral, take a look at some of their other sins against compassion and basic decency.

7 Ways to Make Use of Sub-Par Produce

My grocer has a little known secret: It sells damaged and past-date produce weekly. To find it, you have to go around the corner of the regular produce aisle, next to where the employees take their breaks, and right in front of where the forklifts go in and out. Itís in a wire bin with no special markings or signage. Itís our little piece of heaven. In addition to finding your typical antique bananas and bags of slightly bruised apples, there are other delicious treasures: plastic-wrapped packages of bell peppers, bags of pre-washed organic lettuce hearts, and sacks of hodge-podge items that combine avocados, artichokes, and lemons in the same space. While not everything here is worth buying, they charge 50-99 cents for each package ó regardless of whatís inside or what shape itís in.
