10 Classic Sesame Street Moments We Wouldn't Show Today's Kids

When the Children's Television Workshop unleashed Sesame Street on the world in 1969, it sparked a revolution in television programming. For the first time, TV was supposed to educate children as well as entertain them — make learning fun, using techniques developed through years of rigorous research. Parents across the U.S. had a TV show they could feel safe letting their kids watch. When you buy the first season on DVD or iTunes today, though, it comes with a warning: These early Sesame Street episodes are intended for grown-ups, and may not suit the needs of today's preschool child. For parents today, especially those who grew up in the 1970s and '80s, this is not your child's Sesame Street.

13 Excuses We’ve Used To Avoid Sex

Breaking news: men don’t want to have sex all the time. I know. Total shocker. Seriously, the expectation that anyone will want to have sex all the time is ridiculous. Sometimes your privates need to rest, dammit, or you’re just not in the mood. The other day, the Daily Mail published the results of poll about why men avoid sex. The survey was about erectile dysfunction, which we’re not going to talk about today. Instead, we’ll focus on some other popular excuses men came up with to get out of doing it. Assuming all the equipment was working properly and stuff, the most commonly cited get-out-of-sex excuses included the pets are watching, I’m too busy playing video games, and I’m too full. I’ve heard these all before. Even the pets excuse, which I thought was weird. Substitute “playing video games” for “listening to NPR” or “practicing guitar.” Naturally, I had to conduct an informal poll myself.

5 Villains We’re Glad Went Good

A complex protagonist is difficult to write. It’s the character your audience will be with for the duration of your novel/movie/TV show, so it’s important that you get her right. But it is much more difficult to develop a good antagonist than it is a good protagonist. When we imagine the perfect villain, we (or at least I) imagine an entity of pure evil. While that may provide a formidable opponent for your protagonist, that’s not necessarily a good villain. A good villain is one who is complex. Pure evil is too easy; it’s a copout. A good villain is a well-developed one, maybe even one who means well. A good villain isn’t evil for evil’s sake. In fact, some villains are so complex that they cross over from the dark side and help the protagonist.

10 Things You Didn’t Know Were in Your Bottled Juice

Whether you’re a "natural" juicer who likes to squeeze their own fruits and vegetables into a fabulous purée of flavors, or someone who enjoys a nice Sunny D in the morning before heading to work, many of us find joy in juice. There’s something so refreshing about an ice-cold glass of orange juice — and it’s even better when you throw in a little cranberry juice to make your own mix of flavors. Most of the time when we’re buying bottled juices, we aren’t thinking about checking out each ingredient before we throw the bottles into our cart — but perhaps we should, as some of them might surprise you.

Researchers List Top 10 Airports For Spreading Disease

It may not be the coughing, sneezing passenger next to you on your next flight who is spreading disease, it could be the airport you just took off from. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Civil and Environmental Engineering department looked at the 40 largest U.S. airports and figured out which ones would be the most likely to spread a disease in the event of an outbreak in the cities they serve. They factored in passengers' travel patterns, the airports' geographic locations, interactions between airports and even passenger waiting times for their study, published July 19 in the journal PLoS ONE. One of the surprises in their findings was that an airport's ranking on the researchers' list was not necessarily tied to its size or busyness. While John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and Los Angeles International Airport were first and second on the list, respectively, Honolulu International Airport ranked third, even though it carries only 30% as much traffic as Kennedy.

Top 5 Discoveries by Mars Rover Curiosity So Far

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has only been exploring the Red Planet since last August, but the robot has already racked up quite a string of accomplishments. For starters, the rover's dramatic "seven minutes of terror" touchdown successfully demonstrated a new technique that can land big payloads with unprecedented precision, potentially helping pave the way for human outposts on the Red Planet. And then there's the science. Curiosity was tasked with determining if its Gale Crater landing site has ever been capable of supporting microbial life, and the car-size robot managed to answer that question just seven months into a planned two-year surface mission.

The 25 Hottest Women From HBO Shows

Last night marked the beginning of the end for HBO's Entourage, with the long-running show's eighth season kicking off in entertaining fashion. Since day one, we've vicariously lived through Turtle (Jerry Ferrara), Drama (Kevin Dillon), E (Kevin Connolly), and Ari (Jeremy Piven), who've all respectively lived through Vince (Adrian Grenier). We've felt jealously as they've hooked up with countless unnamed girls, shared the screen with celebrities both male (Kanye West, Eminem) and gorgeously female (Sasha Grey, Jessica Alba), and attended parties we we'd never even be able to stand in line for. Suffice it to say, we'll miss the show for all those reasons, but also one more: E's perpetual on-again/off-again girl Sloan, played by Emmanuelle Chriqui.
