They say that some people are born under a bad sign or born with a mean streak — but we’re sick to death of talking about Mel Gibson.
It turns out that those tired cliches may not be that far from the truth. A study conducted at the University of Buffalo found that people with a tendency to be meaner had attitudes that were partially shaped by their genetic code responding to their negative view of their environment.
The sinking of the infamous RMS Titanic in 1912 has gone down (no pun intended) as the most famous ocean liner disaster in history, thanks in part to popular culture’s take on the topic from the 1958 Roy Ward Baker film ‘A Night to Remember’ to James Cameron’s legendary blockbuster ‘Titanic.’ And yet the legend surrounding this infamous boat (and the 1,500-plus people it took down with it) has surpassed some of the actual events that transpired in the icy North Atlantic Ocean.
Few icons from folklore and mythology have been branded and co-opted more than the leprechaun. Stories of their rare appearances and coveted pot of gold have permeated almost every aspect of popular culture. They have become so synonymous with Irish culture that the streets are filled with tall green hats and green coats every St. Patrick’s Day. Their history, however, is far different from the traditional leprechauns that endlessly wander into bars and fight hangovers one weekend in March. Take a look at a few things you probably didn’t know about leprechauns.
The only two pictures people take that are bound to always be bad are driver's license photos and criminal mugshots. Thankfully, the internet is full of only one of them unless there is a hilarious website of driver's license photos that we have yet to find.
Christmas is full of familiar traditions: carving the ham, leaving cookies out for Santa, listening to Uncle Morty talk about his gall bladder removal surgery while you’re trying to enjoy some egg nog. These s
Halloween is just a few days away and since this annual holiday falls on a Monday, parties are bound to pop up during the weekend to accommodate those who have to go to work without hangovers on (though that probably won’t stop people from having too many candy corn martinis).
The only problem is that you don’t have a costume. You could throw on a dirty old bedsheet, cut a few holes in it and tell people you’re a beige ghost. Or you could actually be clever and in-tune with what’s happening and hip (as the kids say) by going as viral video star the honey badger.
Sure putting together a costume of such a fearsome sounding creature sounds like you’ll be sitting at a sewing machine all night trying to un-sew the sleeve of your shirt out of your costume, but it’s actually one of the simpler clever costumes you can put together for 2011. After the jump, we’ll show you how.
