15 Banned Cartoons You’ll Never See on TV

On Monday, when I watched the previous night’s new episode of “Family Guy,” I got upset. It had nothing to do with the lazy writing, terrible jokes, or Peter being an overly cruel oaf; I’ve gotten used to be irritated at all that. I was pissed off at the animation. It was so lifeless, expressionless, and oddly static, as if the animators were more interested in background continuity than doing anything interesting with the background. So I did what I often do when I get mad at “Family Guy”: I watched Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies clips online. A childhood doesn't count unless you’ve watched a ton of cartoons starring Bugs Bunny and Foghorn Leghorn and the rest of the Warner Bros. gang, and going through them on YouTube was like being seven years old all over again, minus the bowl of Sprinkle Spangles cereal. But then I saw some shorts that I didn’t remember ever being on TV, with titles like “Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs” and “Uncle Tom's Bungalow.” I had come across the infamous “Censored Eleven.”

The 10 Most Bad Ass Vampire Slayers of All Time

I'm not sure when it happened, but at some point in the last few years all of the vampires in fiction, whether it be movies, TV, or comics, became giant vaginas. I love vampire movies, and vampires in general, and it really hurts to see so many mediocre vampires; and in turn, bullshit vampire hunters. True Blood is great drama, but where's the mass vampire slaughtering I want and love?

5 Celebrities Who’ve Undergone Coronary Bypass Surgery

News of Burt Reynolds’ recent quintuple bypass surgery reminded me of when my Dad had the same operation back in 1997 at the ripe old age of 73. His age plus the dangers of anesthesia plus such a blocked-up ticker prompted the cardiologist to prepare us for the worst, but thanks to a combination of modern medicine and Dad’s upbeat attitude when it comes to hospital stays (it’s better than a hotel because pretty young girls give him sponge baths!) he’s still going strong 13 years later. Here are a few other famous folks who owe their lives to just-in-time heart surgery.

10 Deadliest Real Death Rays

The all-powerful, unstoppable death ray has been the fond dream of military commanders and socially awkward teenage boys since the publishing of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds,” but pesky issues of tactical considerations, atmospheric conditions, and basic physics keep getting in the way of the fun. It’s generally only recently that directed-energy weapons have become small enough, cheap enough and dangerous enough to merit the term "death ray." Strap on your goggles and let’s look at 10 real examples of energy weapons.

5 Movie Apocalypses That Would Defeat Themselves

You have to think that one reason people are so pessimistic these days is that when we were growing up, every third movie involved an apocalypse ... via zombies, robots, monkeys or natural disaster. It can be kind of a downer, but if you want to make yourself feel better, all you need to do is remember that almost none of the apocalyptic scenarios actually work.

4 Rules for Talking to Tattooed People Without Disrespecting Their Boundaries

I’m tattooed. And by “I’m tattooed,” I don’t mean one or two or five or seven. I don’t mean that I’m tattooed in the #TeamTatted, finally-I-turned-eighteen-so-I-got-my-first-tattoo sense. I mean tattooed. And I say that to say: I’ve noticed a shift since my body was a blank canvas. The fact of the matter is, whether you have a handful or you’re running out of skin space, it doesn’t matter how many tattoos you have. The point is that the prevalence of tattoos is growing, and attitudes (most attitudes, anyway, if not my mom’s) are changing swiftly from mostly negative to mostly neutral-if-not-positive.
