20 Things You Might Not Know About The Cosby Show

The kids seemed to be in charge of the household and tiny 6-year-olds were smart-mouthing their parents without suffering any repercussions. Cosby sketched out a show where the kids were certainly intelligent, but their parents were always smarter and—most importantly—in charge. The Cosby Show debuted on September 20, 1984, and America went on to spend eight memorable seasons with the Huxtables.

29 Most Random Ways That Major Characters Got Written out of Movie Sequels

It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.” In the case of Will Smith’s character, Captain Steven Hiller, apparently we’re going to learn that he died testing an experimental alien aircraft following the events of Independence Day. Which is kind of a sad way to go. “So what does this button do? Aaaaaaaaaaa.” Here are some other major characters who were written out of movie sequels in the most hand-wavy fashion possible.

10 Weak Movie Characters Who Became Incredible Badasses

It’s called a character arc, and everybody has one. It’s the progression of a character throughout a film as they go from “A” to “B” and change emotionally, intellectually, and physically along the way. It exists because nobody sane wants to watch two hours of some dude sitting in a chair…which just so happens to be the story of how this very list was made. When it comes to action, horror, and any other fast-paced genre of film, one of the best things about watching the characters adapt is that since the environment they exist in is so do-or-die, there is a incredibly steep learning curve – so by the end of the film, you most likely have a completely different person you started with…and considering that they are still alive, they probably got way, way more badass along the way.

5 Weird Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Conception

Ah, the miracle of life. There’s nothing more natural and beautiful than the birth of the child. And nothing more sexy than the way that child was created.

It’s often hard to separate the truth from the myth, even if you own the necessary genitalia to conduct experiments. Luckily, the sexologists (which is totally a real thing) here at WeirdWorm can help set the record straight. Brace yourself, this might be pretty cold.
