8 Unusual and Strange Walls Around the World

Walls have been built since ancient times, to mark borders, protect kingdoms and settlements, or keep out unwanted people.

Top 10 Female Superheroes of All Time

Male superheroes are in books, movies, and television shows. Just about everywhere we look there is a superhero jumping out ready to save the day. What about the strong and powerful female superheroes? Females are often in the background of the story offering support to the main superhero, but maybe it is time to reverse these roles. Perhaps the time has come to showcase females in the limelight as the main character of the story. Women and girls want to see female superheroes in the leading roles in movies, books, and shows. Young girls could benefit from seeing a beautiful, tough, and confident woman combating evil and wrong doings in comic books or on the big screen.

The 10 Most Clever Ways Bill Nye Tricked Us Into Learning About Science

he world would be a much grayer place without Bill Nye, who's of the one few childhood icons from the 1990s worth feeling nostalgic for (sorry, Binyah Binyah Pollywog). He taught us about science, yo, and in a world where you never know when you'll need to wipe the contents of a laptop clean with a magnet, it's an important topic to be knowledgeable in. Especially when it's coming from a man with a deep passion for the topic, not a 75-year-old half-deaf war veteran who doubles as the middle school gym teacher.

5 Destructive Beliefs Almost Everyone Has

Have you ever seen a friend or a loved one completely sabotage their success? Of course, we all have. As a friend, we're there on the sidelines trying to help them but they are so blind to their surroundings and so set in their ways that they are like a run away train that nothing can slow down. Thatís often a negative belief at work. If you donít believe you deserve to earn over $50,000 a year, you probably wonít. You will turn down opportunities because they seem too good to be true, and you will miss lucky breaks because you arenít expecting them. Heck, you aren't even looking for them. This doesnít mean you are stuck there for the rest of your life. Life is fluid and things change, but that change must begin with you.

5 Things You Didn't Know About Breasts

There are far too many synonyms for breasts for us to list here; besides, you probably know most of them. But due the fact that our language is so well-endowed with reference to these funbags, we have to ask: Why are there so many slang terms for an aspect of the female anatomy that, medically speaking, is little more than an asymmetric pair of modified sweat glands?

This purpose is especially applicable in America, where family values, proper neonatal care and breast frenzy have collided to form a prudish, hypocritical function of titillation. So, echoing throughout America is this sentiment: ĒDonít bare them in public if your goal is to feed an infant; thatís a distasteful turnoff."

Food is one of the simplest and most divine of the human pleasures. Here we examine its antithesis: hunger. All the people listed below have had to, by circumstance or dedication, go through extended periods of inedia. Most seem to have taken inspiration from a higher power.

How 10 Shows Hid Their Starsí Real-life Pregnancies

In a way, the showrunners of The Americans have only themselves to blame. They cast Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Elizabeth and Philip Jennings, Russian agents in a sham marriage turned real. The actors' on-screen chemistry bloomed into a real-life connection, and, of course, led to a baby. For the latter half of the show's fourth season, showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields relied on a time-honored TV tradition: hiding the baby bump. ďCuts of her with groceries, cuts of her with a laundry basket, cuts of her with more groceries.
