11 Reasons Why Justin Bieber Is Basically Joffrey From Game of Thrones

How many times have you thought to yourself over the past year or so: "Justin Bieber is the actual worst?" Probably a lot, right? Join the club. We have T-shirts. And those tees say: "Justin Bieber is the actual worst." Seriously, he just keeps doing things that make him beyond salvageable as a human being. We haven't been this annoyed and flat-out disgusted with an individual since Joffrey from Game of Thrones. Which got us thinking: Justin Bieber is basically Joffrey Baratheon in terms of being bratty and having no redeemable qualities. And since Game of Thrones' fourth season is right around the corner, and because anyone who has read the books knows what's coming up for dear little Joffrey, that twerp king has been on our minds recently.

7 Absolutely Insane Animal Defense Mechanisms

Scientists recently recorded footage of a never-before-seen defense mechanism deployed by a small species of deep-sea squid: When threatened, the squid attacks its predator and then pulls away, breaking off the tip of its own arm and leaving it behind as a distraction. The arm continues to glow and twitch, creating a diversion and enabling the squid to escape. But this squid isn’t the only creature with a bizarre way of defending itself. Here are several other ways animals try to save their own lives, or the lives of their comrades.

13 Horror Movies and the True Stories They're Based On

While most, if not all, horror movies include a fair amount of fiction to make the story more gory and gruesome, often times the inspiration for these classic horror movies are based on true stories. The actual events in a lot of cases are that of legend or not nearly as scary as the theatrical version, but every so often the true events are scarier than anything someone could think up for shock value. Some of the very best horror movies of all time are based on actual events. Take "Psycho," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Silence of the Lambs," for example, three of the scariest horror movies of all time are based on the horrible killings of a single man, Ed Gein. Independently, the three films tell horrifying tales of mass murder, torture and cannibalism but put them all together and you get a look at serial killer Ed Gein. Of course in many cases, the fiction is a stretch on the actual facts such as in the haunted house horror films. In "The Amityville Horror," "The Haunting in Connecticut" and "The Entity," families were haunted by demons in their own homes. In reality, investigators dispute many of these claims with some declared straight up hoaxes.

27 Actors Who Got Their Starts on Miami Vice

On September 28, 1984, Miami Vice made its premiere on NBC, and a new kind of cop show was born—one in which grown men weren’t afraid to pair pastel Ts with white Armani suits, music was an integral part of the storytelling, and pet alligators and sweet Ferraris were all within reach of an undercover narcotics officer. The show, which for the most part still holds up today (well, the first three seasons at least), is also famous for giving a break to dozens of then-unknown young actors who’ve since moved from the underbelly of South Beach to the top of the Hollywood A-list. Here are 27 of them.

10 Unfortunate Fates of English Kings

Historically, the early English kings have a reputation for living high on the hog, and pleasing themselves at the expense of the people they ruled. It was not always so. In the middle ages many of them missed out on a trouble free reign culminating in a State Funeral. We know very little about the first several hundred years of the Anglo-Saxon era. The earliest written records were no more than inventive lists of rulers who established separate kingdoms. The Saxons settled in the west, the Anglos in the east and north, and the Jutes on the Isle of Wight and the opposite mainland. They probably thought of themselves as separate peoples, but they shared a common language and similar customs.

10 Reasons Not to Buy a Puppy From a Pet Store

Most dog lovers know about the often horrid conditions of puppy mills, the unregulated breeding facilities owned by disreputable breeders. Dogs are often bred far too frequently, are kept cramped together in squalor, and are not socialized with humans. In addition, these breeders do not always care about the health and strength of the breed, which often results in genetic illnesses, poor health in general and unlikable personality traits. But many of these same dog aficionados, who have t-shirts and bumper stickers denouncing puppy mills, don't know that most puppies sold at pet stores come from there. There are some pet stores that buy their puppies from commercial kennels regulated by the Department of Agriculture. However, even these pups tend to be unhealthy and unsocialized. This is partly due to the fact that commercial kennels tend to breed many different breeds in one facility and they breed for quantity, not quality. Therefore, their interest does not lie in the healthy promotion of a certain breed but rather in how many sales they can get.

On the weekend before Christmas, you may be off work and ready to celebrate with friends before the whole family gets together. A Christmas party only takes people and maybe some food and refreshments (although a good game or two is nice as well), but along with your Christmas treats and snacks and drinks, you should have at least one visually-stimulating recipe that will truly impress your guests with your ingenuity and style. With that in mind, here are some eye-popping holiday beverages you can whip up, including cocktails, punches, non-alcoholic drinks, and jello shots.

Top 10 Mechanic Scams

We have a lot of respect for competent, honest, highly skilled auto technicians. Working on modern vehicles demands unprecedented talent and training, and an advanced computer science degree doesn’t hurt either. Have you looked under the hood of a car lately? A career at NASA could be a stepping stone to diagnosing some automotive issues. Then there are the shysters that perpetuate stereotypes. They know all the old mechanic scams and routinely sell premature or unnecessary parts and services. It’s bad enough they bleed you for extra money wherever they can, but they’re also screwing with your ride. Whether that’s by design or incompetence, you could face more repairs, a breakdown or even a wreck.

The 6 Tips to Saving Feral Dogs and Making Them Family

In the twilight, we saw two large dogs in hot pursuit of a bunny, whizzing across an open field near Harris Stowe University in St. Louis. Expecting an uneventful drive home from our downtown offices, my husband and I were startled. “What? Loose dogs? In the city?” But seeing them should not have surprised us. Street dogs here and in many urban areas are plentiful. Some are stray, meaning their lives have included some human socialization. And others are feral, born on the street, never having experienced people beyond our being an element (often perceived as dangerous) in their environment. But whether stray or feral, these dogs struggle. Illness and injury are rampant. Their desperate food-and-shelter searches often fail. And devoted rescue organizations with limited funds too often have to leave an overwhelming number “out there.”
