While some destinations promise fun in the sun, others offer a chance to explore a sober slice of American history. Commemorate some of the nation's most tragic events at these landmarks across the USA.

10 Discontinued Fast Food Items We Want Back

The world of fast-food chains is one full of innovation. Change the channel and there's some new product staring you down, filling you with desires you didn't even know you had. Just a second ago you didn't realize you wanted those chips inside your burrito but now all you want is to eat the shit out of that. You're halfway to your car, not even wearing pants, not even with enough money to pay for the food thing, but dammit you will rob the sorriest of mothers to eat this. But sometimes, in life, your desire is not strong enough to keep something in the world. Chains discontinue items, even though we don't want them to. Even though we cry and plead and start Facebook pages dedicated to their resurrection.

Growing up a boy, as I did -well, the boy part anyway, not so much the growing up part- I played with my fair share of action figures. What boy didn’t, right? How cool was it to shred open the package of a brand new Battle Beast or Centurion and wage instant war with your other toys? We never understood the possibility of collectability and rarity when we were kids, they were just cool toys, and that’s what they should have been. So, having had most of my memorable childhood in the 80’s, here are thirty of the best action figure lines ever created.

Generally, when one kid in a family gets into show business, other kin are often soon to follow. I think there are many reasons for this. One, brothers and sisters are naturally competetive. That is not a bad thing by any stretch. But it does exist between siblings. Second, once someone is famous, it can naturally open doors for their siblings that would have otherwise remained shut. But I bet there are a bunch of famous celebrities you didn’t even know were related. Not even just brothers and sisters, but cousins and uncles, too.

It's over, finally. Comic-Con 2010 has come to an end, and it did not disappoint.

Breaking Barriers: 10 Of The Greatest Female Athletes

esearching champions of women’s athletics on the internet is an exercise in patience. Scores of women will be touted as the “sexiest”, “hottest” or the “most popular” athletes, but when it comes to records of pure, physical accomplishments, such names prove rather difficult to find.

What makes a film so appalling that it transitions from ordinary ineptitude into the sublime; beyond cult status and into that surreal place where you really can't believe what you're watching?

Along the way, he spoke with such bad movie aficionados as John Landis, Joe Dante, Eli Roth, John Waters and the Mystery Science crew, while himself appearing in George Romero's Survival of the Dead. Here then are 25 of his picks for those films that, awful as they may be, you simply cannot turn away.
