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.

10 Things I Learned Eating On $1 A Day For A Month

sister challenged me to try and eat well for a month spending only $1 a day for food. It probably would have been wise if I had thought about how much I hate shopping and cooking before I took on the challenge, but once I committed, nothing could stop me (not even a trip to the emergency room — two times — in the first week) I began May 1 with absolutely no food and managed to stay under my $31 budget for the month (I bought $597.96 worth of food and other stuff for $27.08 during the month).

Nothing says ‘screw you’ like building a house out of pure spite. Wikipedia defines a spite house as: A building constructed or modified to irritate neighbors or other parties with land stakes.

Because long-term occupation is at best a secondary consideration, spite houses frequently sport strange and impractical structures. Below you will find eight real-world examples of people who took their conflict to the next level. Like Dave Chappelle [Clayton Bigsby] says: “If you have hate in your heart. Let it out”

10 Amazing Facts About Bees and Wasps

Everyone has an opinion about bees and wasps, ranging from wild, hysterical arm waving to wild, hysterical body contortions.
