10 Websites That Make Browsing Wikipedia More Fun

This article covers several useful and powerful Wikipedia search engines. Put in a search with a keyword into a regular search engine and there’s a high chance a reference from Wikipedia will pop up at the head of the results. Wikipedia has become a virtual ‘Encyclopedia Britannica’ for a lot of us. I would rate Wikipedia as one of the best examples of social co-operation that you will ever get to see. Wikipedia is social web at its finest and freest. As Wikipedia co-founder and promoter Jimmy Wales had said long back – “Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That’s what we’re doing.” Wikipedia is also being increasingly used and cited by schools, colleges and scholars. So, let me also ask you here – how do you use Wikipedia? Not for what, but how exactly do you browse through it?

The Top 5 Second Amendment Enemies and Hypocrites

Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan recently challenged a feisty reporter in Michigan on the Second Amendment. Ryan countered a loaded question from the reporter about “gun problems” saying “this nation has a crime problem.” Instead of proposing gun bans Ryan gave credence to enforcing current laws as well as focusing more energy on community groups, charities, education and youth programs. The interview ended abruptly after the reporter jabbed back at Ryan “and you can do all that by cutting taxes?” Anti-gun groups were clearly hopeful that gun control would be brought up at the last debate. With the first VP debate scheduled for this Thursday as well as two Presidential debates left to go, the chances are likely it could come up. It would be foolish to assume every politico is as pro-Second Amendment as Congressman Ryan.

6 What Americans Spend Money On That Other Countries Don’t

I dislike wasting money, and I’m sure I’m not alone when I say this. Although wasting money might make most of us feel a bit queasy, Americans waste billions of dollars each year on frivolous purchases or on items that provide no real value in our lives. Spending habits of Americans include buying junk food, paying fines, and taking our chances at the casino. When you compare what Americans spend money on to what people in other countries spend money on, it’s a bit sickening. For example, Americans are spending the least amount on food compared to the UK, Japan, and Canada. We’re spending the most on housing, though, which might suggest that our housing market is still over-inflated.

Mindhole Blowers: 20 Facts About Blazing Saddles That Might Leave Your Mind Aglow

Mel Brooks' raunchy, insane Blazing Saddles had a heck of a time getting out the gate, but when it finally did, oh what a race it ran. With pitch perfect performances by Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn and Harvey Korman, the little Western (spoof) that could took on racial bigotry, sex and bodily functions, defied closed-minded fears and went on to become a great success, both with audiences and the awards circuit. Whether or not one enjoys this shocking, in-your-face comedy, Brooks' (and his actors') willingness to charge headfirst into dangerous waters is nothing if not admirable.

Top 10 Career-Ending Blunders of All Time

Anyone who has spent significant time in the real world understands that one misstep can ruin a promising or even established career. It’s why we choose not to become too comfy around our coworkers, speak our minds in the office, or behave in any manner that indicates we’re unprofessional. The fear of what could happen is enough to keep most people in check, especially if they live in the public eye. Just look at the prominent people listed below — their successful careers were gleefully guillotined in public by the merciless, blood-thirsty lynch mob that is the media. Of course, in some cases, these people were already suffering career declines, and their so-called "career-ending" blunders didn’t really end their careers, but crippled them. Semantics aside, we can all agree that their falls from grace were cringe-worthy.
