5 Things You Will Take Away From Swimming

Swimming is a gift in a lot of ways. Sure, there are lots of “missed” moments, those parties you have to hear about on Monday mornings (which no one completely remembers anyways), and bumped heads from not getting the backstroke flags up in time. But those little things will seem trivial, funny, or completely irrelevant in the years after you hang up your suit. But with those perceived “losses” comes an overwhelming return. Some of the awesomeness is apparent while you are competing still; the camaraderie getting out of an exam because you are away for a meet, being the only kid in school with a six pack. Other stuff will take some time to appreciate. It will come to you slowly, deeply, and at times very unexpectedly. Years later you will look back on your swimming days with a sense of nostalgia.

10 Most Offensive Beer Labels

In recent weeks, the series of tubes we call the Internet has been abuzz with debates over “offensive” beer names and labels. The Michigan Liquor Control Commission’s dubious decision to ban Flying Dog’s Raging Bitch Belgian IPA sparked a number of angry free speech diatribes. And earlier this month, Candice Alström created a firestorm when she used her husband’s influential website, BeerAdvocate.com, to personally bash Clown Shoes, a small, Massachusetts-based brewery known for their lascivious labels and names. These discussions got me thinking…what ARE the most offensive beer labels out there? Of course, there are plenty of one-off, draft-only beers with blatantly offensive names (Dark Horse’s Busterhiman Cherry Ale anyone?). But that’s a different list…I want to know about actual, printed beer labels.

Valentine’s Day is a pretty divisive holiday. Some people love it. Others hate it. Personally, the only reason I don’t rally against the holiday is that heart-shaped Reese’s have a really awesome peanut butter to chocolate ratio. But it’s not just us normal folks who are skeptical about the yearly love-fest. There are quite a few celebrities who have no tolerance for the contrived mush that reigns over V-Day.

Nearly one-third of people caring for terminally ill loved ones suffer from depression according to research from Yale University.

9 Athletes with a Ridiculous Amount of Kids

Is it Father’s Day already? No. It’s not. But it’s always fun to talk about pro athletes knocking women up. So rather than have Xmas in November, let’s have Father’s Day in November and commemorate nine guys that just…well, there’s no way around it. These guys have a TON of kids. Some legit, most not. The details on illegitimate kids are fuzzy due to disclosure agreements, and we don’t want to go around (further) sullying these guys’ names. Not wanting to go on a Woodward and Bernstein-type investigative exploration, we stopped at the confirmed kids, but feel free to let your imagination run wild. The rankings are largely in order of number of children, with an exception being made for Scott Skiles. You’ll see.

9 Sports Coupes: Slick Styling, Short Life

After much speculation, Subaru has announced that the name of its new sports coupe, to be unveiled later this year, will be BRZ. Aside from confusion about the name (apparently "B" stands for the boxer engine, "R" for rear-wheel-drive, and "Z" for its zenith of perfection), you may wonder what Subaru is doing in the sports coupe business anyway. Sports coupes have two doors, emphasize flash over functionality, and aspire to higher levels of performance. While it is capable of contemporary design, Subaru is a company better known for sturdy all-wheel-drive vehicles like the Outback. And as car models go, many sports coupes have the life expectancy of fruit flies. Subaru has been down this road before with the short-lived SVX. This is not a product segment filled with golden oldies. Sport coupes are all about fashion, and fashion is fleeting -- and fickle. Herewith, some more sports coupes that didn't stand the test of time.

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. So, in honor of the Science Guy being alive (and his amazing video directed toward evolution deniers), here are 10 clever ways Bill Nye tricked us into learning about science as kids.
