15 Criminals Who Got Caught By Bragging About Their Crimes

Look, jail sucks, and not everyone who's locked up deserves to be there. I'm not here to pass judgement on whether or not certain crimes are prison worthy, I'm just here to point out that sometimes people do bad things, and when they do, it's kinda cool when their own arrogance and stupidity is what gets them caught.

10 Pieces of British Slang I’d Like to See Adopted in America

I watch a lot of British television. My wife just watched all of Downton Abbey in about a day, and I love Doctor Who so much that we named our daughter Amelia. We’re two cultures separated by a common language, but the more British television I watch, the more envious I’ve become of some of their slang terms, and I’d like to see some of them adopted into American English so I can use them without sounding like a jerk who’s just been watching too much BBC. Clearly, not all of these will catch on overnight here in the States, but I think if we all put a little effort into it, we can make this happen. You might not agree with all my choices, but I’ll explain my reasons for each one. Hear me out, won’t you, mates?

6 Simple Ways to Improve Bars

Bars shaped like a sine wave (or cosine, I'm open to ideas) could seat more people than the linear bars we see every day, AND those people can also actually see each other as if they were sitting around a table, instead of in a row. Sine bars also have built in points where people who aren't sitting can immediately get the bartender's attention. Now everyone can feel like that one hot-looking, incredibly loud girl.

10 Bands Known Only for a TV Show Theme Song

If any of you musicians dream of being a one-hit wonder, consider peddling your wares to a major television network. Scads of decent bands (usually of the alt-rock variety) have topped the charts with their theme songs, never to be heard from again.

Here you'll find 10 bands known only (or, in some cases, primarily) for the TV themes they performed.

Check Out 6 New Dog-Friendly Cars From the New York International Auto Show

Car manufacturers have learned that they have to sell a car not just to one person, but also to the entire family. And that includes the family pet. Those of us who share our lives with pets know that their needs are an essential part of every car-buying decision. That explains why Subaru offers a Dog Matchmaker on its Facebook page and why you’ll see dogs co-starring in ads from Land Rover and Chevrolet, among others. Jean Jennings, editor-in-chief of JeanKnowsCars.com and Automobile Magazine, has been taking her four dogs along in a wide variety of test cars for years. She notes, "Cars today are so much more dog-friendly: from technology such as air bags and traction control that make cars safer than ever to seats that fold easily so you can fit dog crates in back. That, and the proliferation of tall wagons and SUVs, means you are much less limited in your car choices as a pet owner than in the past."

The 10 Biggest Pinocchios of 2013

It’s time for our annual round-up of the biggest Pinocchios of the year. This was not a presidential election year, so in some ways the subjects that needed to be fact checked were more substantive. In reviewing The Fact Checker’s more than 200 columns in the past year, we found an interesting evolution from statistics about gun violence to claims about President Obama’s health-care law. Our general rule of thumb held: the more complex a subject is, the more tempted politicians are to make misleading claims. President Obama ended up with three of the most misleading claims of the year. But, despite the urging of some readers, his statement that “I didn’t set a red line” on Syria is not among them. We had looked closely at that claim and had determined that, in context, it was a bungled talking point, so that statement actually earned no rating. As always, that and other rulings were met with vehement objections from some readers. The Fact Checker thanks the readers who have offered thoughtful rebuttals to our conclusions. In some cases, in light of new information, we adjusted Pinocchio ratings.
