13 Actors You Probably Didn't Know Were Once SNL Cast Members

For the lucky ones, Saturday Night Live is a launch pad for fame: Put in your time, get a few solid characters, spin a sketch into a feature film, and then leave the show to become a full-blown star. But just because a cast member falls through the cracks, gets fired, or leaves after a single season, doesn't mean he/she isn't destined for greatness. Here are 13 famous faces you may have forgotten were once part of the SNL cast.

The 50 Most Amazing College Campuses

When choosing a college, many students overlook one of the most important factors: quality of life. At The Best Colleges one of our goals is to emphasize to students the importance of the context and learning environment in which they choose to get educated. In polling that we’ve conducted of recent college graduates, there is one thing in particular that stands out as playing a vital role in how a student perceives her last four years of education. The campus setting. And beautiful college campuses rule the day. Because students who graduate from beautiful campuses typically report higher overall satisfaction with their college experience, we decided to put together these rankings of the 50 prettiest college campuses in the United States.

The 10 Most Redneck Cities in America

Whenever someone asks me where I’m from, I proudly say “Austin”—the land of live music, beautiful parks, active, healthy people, art, theater, and open-mindedness. It is the little blue dot in a red state. But the further I get from home, the more specific I find I have to be. Being from Austin [Texas], I’ve had my fair share of encounters with rednecks over the years—when I’m buying groceries, walking around the city, pickin’ up ammo for my .22, etc. So coming up with criteria for this post was not difficult for me; in fact, the hardest part was narrowing it down. You see, rednecks are a surprisingly diverse folk—they love home cookin’, but they love fast food; they love their dogs, but they love their taxidermied animals just the same. In the end, though, I narrowed it down to these eight most essential criteria...

21 Natural Ways to Prevent and Treat Headaches

Anyone who's ever had a headache (and that's 90% of the entire population, according to some estimates) knows that they can range from nagging to debilitating. The most common type is a tension headache, a mild, constricting feeling around your head that's often caused by holding your neck in a tight position. Migraines, on the other hand, tend to be both intense and recurring. Medication is one way to treat your discomfort, but there are also plenty of natural ways—like the 21 tricks listed here—that can help you head off the ache.

10 Tips to Mend a Broken Heart

Bess Myerson once wrote that “to fall in love is awfully simple, but to fall out of love is simply awful.” Especially if you are the one who wanted the relationship to last. Mending a broken heart is never easy. There is no quick way to stop your heart from hurting so much. To stop loving isn’t an option. Author Henri Nouwen writes, “When those you love deeply reject you, leave you, or die, your heart will be broken. But that should not hold you back from loving deeply. The pain that comes from deep love makes your love ever more fruitful.” But how do we get beyond the pain? Here are 10 tips I’ve gathered from experts and from conversations with friends on how they patched up their heart and tried, ever so gradually, to move on.

The 10 Nerdiest Myths MythBusters Busted

MythBusters isn't merely one of the best TV shows currently on the air; by my reckoning, it is also the most purely nerdy program on television. The very concept of the show is steeped in nerd tradition, as who among us hasn't whiled away a few entertaining hours discussing the feasibility of a questionable movie stunt, or an urban legend, or a dubious historical "fact" with some fellow geeks? These geeks just happen to be special effects wizards: The upbeat, frenetic Adam Savage; the stoic, yet eccentric Jamie Hyneman; Human crash-test dummy Tori Belleci; ginger-haired Mistress of Destruction Kari Byron; and the man most likely to be spared when the Robot Apocalypse comes, Grant Imahara. Together, they do what we just talk about -- put popular claims ranging from the semi-reasonable to the totally audacious under the microscope, and test them in the real world. Also, they film themselves doing it.

Top 10 Facts About Mail-Order Brides

Mail-order bride is a label applied to a woman who publishes her intent to marry someone from another – usually more financially developed – country. Historically, mail-order brides were women who listed themselves in catalogs and were selected by men for marriage.

The 10 Scariest Aircraft Landings Caught On Video

Next time you feel like complaining about the Wi-Fi on your flight being slow, just remember it could have been worse. Much worse. In reality, truly terrible is when you lose both engines and your pilot who has one eye has to land a Boeing 737 on a narrow levee. Or when a missile tears off half of your wing just after takeoff. Nobody had any video cameras on hand for those landings, though.
