"The 25 Greatest Unscripted Moments In Movies"

Quite interesting. See if you recognize the movies. (Some very NSFW language.)

"The 20 Luckiest Shots in Sports History"

Interesting list (with video). The Immaculate Reception is doesn't even crack the top 10.

"Supermarket Standoff: Best Tasting Bacon"

"We whittled down the large volume of brands by choosing classic hickory- or applewood-smoked versions. We included both cured and uncured bacon; the latter is rising in popularity due to health-conscious baconnoisseurs."

"Could They be Prime Habitats of Advanced Machine-Based Civilizations?"

Learn a little about BOK Globules

I can but sigh

Ben Stein on something that "a star student at a prestige day school in the L.A. area, taking five AP classes and studying night and day" doesn't know

"Has college become too easy?"

One pizzaiolo told the Explainer that he gets about 18,000 customers per week at his store, of which approximately 50 ask for anchovies.

I don't there's much future in being a translator

"Star Trek becomes reality as Microsoft 'Universal Translator' turns spoken English into any of 26 different languages".

"Dean Wormer’s Guide to Some Fantastic Colleges"

Dean Wormer is, far and away, my favorite college dean of all time. So his advice commands attention.
