The 30 Most Powerful Sports Photographs Of All Time

Derek Redmond was a British Olympic sprinter (400 meters) in the '80s and early '90s. His career had been plagued by injuries that forced him to drop out of the 1988 Olympics just before his race. He had eight surgeries between 1988 and 1992 and by the time the Barcelona games came along he was ready to go. In the semifinals his hamstring snapped after 150 meters. A stretcher was brought out but Redmond refused it. And pulled himself up and began limping to the finish. His father ran through security to be with his son and helped him cross the finish line.

8 Incredible Trips You'll Never Be Able To Afford

Why stick to a travel budget when you can spend more than you'll make in a lifetime on a single 40-day vacation? From over-the-top alcohol tasting to cruises too fancy for their own good, you'll probably only take these trips in your wildest dreams... and that's perfectly reasonable. Guests at the Eden Rock Hotel's oceanfront Villa Rockstar can record their own album using the same console John Lennon used to record "Imagine."

10 Reasons 2011 Should and Will Begin the Apocalypse

Every year, without fail, commonly recurring natural disasters, stormy weather conditions, changes in animal behavior, and even oddly shaped clouds in the sky prompt a new slew of lunatics to claim that end time is nigh. It’s almost as if — wait, it’s exactly the case that most of these people are biding their time, excitedly twiddling their thumbs in anticipation of the moment when Jesus defends from the sky to suck them up with a giant vacuum. That, or the prophet has ulterior motives, typically known as ‘brainwashing people’ and ‘creating distractions’. But forget logic; 2011 is the real beginning of the end! Here’s why.

Top 6 Most Obscure TV Spinoffs from Popular Shows

If a TV show is a smash hit, it makes perfect sense to attempt to duplicate that success, right? That’s certainly what utterly unimaginative television execs and writers have always banked on. The formula is simple yet effective: tirelessly crank out spinoff after spinoff of any popular TV show and collect the profit from whatever sticks. Some television spinoffs have actually been quite successful (Frasier, The King of Queens, The Simpsons) however, many others were doomed from the gate. One such short-lived show was ALF 3000 which aired briefly in our imaginations in 2009 before being canceled in favor of a Jessica Alba meets Beyonce fantasy sequence. Anyway, we here at WeirdWorm have (at gunpoint) compiled a list of six amazingly obscure TV spinoffs from popular shows which you probably never knew existed.
