8 Completely Badass Veterans You’ve Never Heard Of

Veterans Day can be a slippery holiday. Unlike Memorial Day, which gets a barbecue-filled three-day weekend to kick off summer, Veterans Day often falls in the middle of the week, isolated by days of work and crummy November weather. As a veteran myself, I’m often unsure what to do with the day. Call old friends and reminisce? Go to a parade? Drink a bottle of Thunderbird and cry? None of it feels appropriate, and so I end up volunteering for some kind of veterans service, because I’m pure of heart and my soul is filled with the warmth of a thousand golden retriever puppies. But YOU shouldn’t have to waste your Veterans Day listening to old people talk about gooks and krauts. You’re busy, which is why you’re wasting time on the Internet in hopes of reading stories about American servicemen wrecking chunks of foreign countries and taking lives in the defense of the Constitution, freedom, and apple pie.

The 25 Most Epic Ads That Aren't '1984'

Leo Burnett once said great advertising could be boiled down into three simple messages: "Here's what we've got. Here's what it will do for you. Here's how to get it." Maybe, but where's the fun in that? Sometimes it's best to just go big.

Quentin Tarantino's 10 Most Legendary Characters

Quentin Tarantino developed his outlandish revision of WWII history, Inglourious Basterds, for at least a decade. But the auteur has been conceiving brilliant characters throughout his career. From Reservoir Dogs to Death Proof, Tarantino’s ensembles have been packed with verbose, gun-wielding folks whose outsized egos are only matched by their swagger and ability to wax philosophical about life and popular culture. They are a new age of post-modernist antiheroes: hilarious, brutal and often both at the same time. And they drop the F-bomb as if it were the most common verb, noun and adjective. Here are our all-time favorites

The 5 Stupidest Nuclear Weapons

As long as man has been able to mix together chemicals, he’s been blowing the heck out of anything that moves. About seventy years ago, he hit the apotheosis of “blowing the heck out of stuff” power: the nuclear bomb. But apparently dropping it from planes wasn’t enough. Oh no, we had to put that kind of power into backpacks, stick it in grenade launchers, and fire it out of cannons. Here are five weapons that prove that not only was the Cold War pointless, both sides were completely insane.

The 5 Nerdiest Toys Based on U.S. Presidents

Let us all be thankful that, despite living in a country where people can figure out ways to make a buck out of anything, our leaders' likenesses are in the public domain. Which means the sky's the limit when it comes to merchandising. A stoner roommate of mine once had a theory that the toy companies killed JFK so they'd make more money off of his likeness. I suppose it's no worse a theory than some. Presidents inspire bumper stickers, T-shirt and even action figures, often ones that speak famous phrases like "Four score and seven years ago" and "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." But in more recent years, a new crop have sprung up that give our commanders-in-chief a nerdier spin, be it with scene-specific details or the addition of fantasy elements. Partisan issues aside, I think we all know what cool toys look like. Hail to these chiefly collectibles.

10 White People Who Inexplicably Became Ninjas

Ninjutsu, the art of the ninja, is an ancient, closely guarded tradition of stealth, martial arts and assassination that is only taught to the most skilled of Japanese warriors… and pretty much any white dude who happens to be in the neighborhood. Seriously, it’s like ninjas have their own version of Affirmative Action just for white guys, and thus several Euro-Americans have managed to snag honorary ninja degrees when they had no business doing so. Here are 10 of ‘em.
