20 Awesome Gun Rooms You Should Be Jealous Of

What does your gun room look like? Let’s face it, a lot of us don’t have enough firearms to warrant giving them their own room—not to mention giving up valuable house space! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t plan for when that day comes. Here are 20 innovative, luxurious, or just practical gun rooms that you can take notes from. Some look comfy enough to relax in while you drink a glass of single malt scotch whisky—if you have one of these rooms, you can probably afford some high-end Macallan—while others are little more than cabinets or corners stuffed full of guns.

The 5 Myths Of The Great Financial Meltdown

It's hard to believe, but it's been five years and a day since the U.S. financial system's problems surfaced, and we're still not even remotely close to being able to feel good about the economy. My admittedly arbitrary start date is June 12, 2007, the day the Wall Street Journal reported that two Bear Stearns hedge funds that owned mortgage securities were in big trouble. At the time, things didn't seem all that grim -- in fact, U.S. stocks hit an all-time high four months later. But in retrospect the travails of the funds, which collapsed within weeks, were a tip-off that a crisis was afoot. Problems kept erupting, efforts to restore calm failed, and we trembled on the brink of a financial abyss in 2008-09. Things have gotten better since then, but still aren't close to being right.

10 Celebrities Who Spied on the Side

For some of these big-name personalities, spying taught them the skills that made them famous; for others, being famous made them the perfect spies. Long before he wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, Roald Dahl was a fighter pilot for the British Royal Air Force during World War II. But after sustaining several injuries in a horrific crash in 1940—including a fractured skull and temporary blindness—Dahl was rendered unable to fly. In 1942, he was transferred to a desk job at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. Dahl quickly charmed his way into high society and became so popular among D.C. ladies that British intelligence came up with a whole new role for him: seducing powerful women and using them to promote Britain’s interests in America.

9 Worst Cinematic Portrayals of College Life

Let’s start here: you were cooler than you think in college. Although movies often rest on the assumption that their viewers will suspend disbelief for a few hours and fall into their world, some films fare better at this than others. This is not to argue that movies should all be hyper-realistic — they’re pieces of art, and there’s real life for that. But there’s something to be said for the hyper-ridiculous setting. Enter: the universities portrayed in the movies. And because no one wants to be bored with a list of bad flicks, we’ve found instead the most ridiculous. While college life may be a time of wild partying, barely making it, and coming of age, these nine movies feature the most unrealistic (“the worst!”) cinematic portrayals of the subject. Sit back, relax, and thank your lucky stars that you didn’t get your degree in one of these nine worlds.

10 Halloween Costumes that You Need to See on Video

Last year here on Unreality, for some reason or another I was severely slacking in the Halloween posts in the week preceding the holiday. So this year I’m making up for that with a boatlaod of Halloween themed installments, this one included. Everyone has typical picture galleries of good and bad costumes (including us), but there aren’t any video lists showcasing great costumes in action. I rounded up ten of the best I could find, and some of the videos are truly awesome. My favorites are this transforming Bumblebee costume, and one very enthusiastic Les Grossman impersonator.

Die Laughing: The 10 Best Horror Comedies of All Time

When the audience is laughing during a horror film, it's usually a bad sign. Horror movies are almost always supposed to frighten the bejesus out of viewers, not leave them snickering in the aisles. But every so often a horror flick comes along that expertly blends screams and laughs. Good horror comedies are hard to find, though, so Wired went straight to the source this Halloween season: We asked the experts at horror magazine Fangoria to give us the best side-splitters they could think of.

10 Intimate Snapshots of Nurses Stationed in Vietnam

The ‘60s were an exciting time for women’s liberation. The second wave of feminism was well under way, and women were freer than ever. Unfortunately, though, this swinging era was also blighted by the Vietnam War, which had a huge impact on the collective psyche of the generation. Vietnam nurses, the majority of them female, faced enemy bombs, bullets, shells, overwork, and horrible conditions. And the brutal warfare devastated both sides, physically and mentally. Nursing was as noble a calling then as it is now, and the photographs of nurses during this period reflect an extraordinary combination of liberal cultural trends, harsh working environments, and making the most of a bad situation. Read on for ten poignant snapshots of nurses stationed in Vietnam.

6 Reasons Why Cats Are Totally Badass

Some people think cats are little lap loungers who scurry from any loud noise. Even worse, I've heard some people say they think cats have no personality at all. What? Cats are chock-full of personality, and no way are they complete scaredy cats who jump at their own shadows. Not all the time, anyway. Actually, I think cats are pretty badass.

The 10 Most Intense Countdowns In Movies

Yes that’s right – New Years just happened like, a week ago… counting down, people count down on New Years… that’s the point, and it’s as close as I can get to writing about something that relates to the holidays, and it’s way late. And while I first thought to do this because of the end of 2011, it actually turned out to be a fun list to think about. How do you judge the intensity of a ticking clock? It’s not always how close the characters came to zero – sometimes it’s about the process itself, getting to inevitability, fighting time. It’s rather like life, and the knowledge that being on this world is a sort of countdown. Every year is another tick of the clock, leading every one of us to the same inescapable conclusion. So uh… Happy New Year! …Here’s a list counting down countdowns.

13 Best Haunted Houses In America

Running a haunted house used to be one of the worst ways to scare up an income, but a lot has changed in the last decade. "Ten years ago, very few people gave up a job with health insurance in order to run a haunted house year-round," Larry Kirchner, editor HauntWorld, a website dedicated to the haunted attraction industry, told The Huffington Post. Kirchner, who has been following the professional haunted house industry since 1996, said that what once was a seasonal business now has year-round potential. "When I started out, basically haunted houses in a given area were competing with local businesses," he said. "Now, thanks to YouTube and Travel Channel, the competition to be the best has gone national." HauntWorld has compiled a list of what it proclaims to be the 13 best haunted houses in the country. Kirchner thinks the people behind the houses could find work in other fields if the haunted house business dries up. "The people who run these houses could easily be working in Hollywood doing movies," he said. "That's the type of dedication this takes."
