100. 10 Things you probably did not know about Sloths.
3. All sloths have three-toes, even the “two-toed” ones
The name might sound like a simple way to describe this gentle creature, but even names in nature can be misleading. It’s true that two-toed sloths only have two claws on their forelimbs, but both the two-toed and three-toed sloth have three claws on their hind-limbs. That means two-toed sloths have “two fingers,” not “two toes”. The discrepancy derives from the names in the Spanish translation for the two-toed sloth, “Perezoso de Dos Dedos.” “Dedos” means fingers, which caused some confusion for the English translation.
Sloths: misnomer, translation error, or nit picking petty idiocy?
99. 17 Movies worth Geeking out to in 2012.
Really? Ghost Rider? Nicholas Cage? Worth geeking out to? Ladies and Gentleman, we found the reason why Michael Bay gets to keep making shitty movies.Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
I never get tired of listening to Nick Cage’s “I am talking through my nose” voice. Never! I didn’t enjoy the first Ghost Rider but for some reason I have the urge to see this one. Johnny Blaze (love the cheese), is still battling with the curse of being the Ghost Rider, so he decides the best thing to do is hide out in a remote part of Eastern Europe. Poor Johnny, don’t you know you can’t really hide from evil? It always finds you. In this case, it comes knocking when a secret sect of the Catholic Church asks him to save a boy from becoming possessed by Roarke, The Devil himself, who put the curse on Johnny. What will Johnny do? I don’t know but I hope he sets things on fire! The guy has a flaming motorcycle! I have no idea why I am not into this more.
91. A collection of 37 Kisses:

Yeah, I'm sentimental. There's something here for everyone. Especially animal lovers.
87. 9 of the Best (Worst) Fictional Games in Movies.
2) Military Simulators in Lawnmower ManLawnmower man is such a guilty pleasure movie. It's terrible, but in the right way,
Okay, so this isn't really a game, it's a military simulator created for chimps who use "infrared battle helmets" to train for combat, but it a) looks a lot like a game and b) was turned into an atrocious SNES and computer game, so it counts. The "game" itself looks eerily like those trippy, computer-generated Mind's Eye VHSes peddled in the early '90s, only with a gun onscreen as the player careens around hugely digitized - but still mind-blowing, for its time - vistas. Hey, if it's good enough for chimps to play, why can't a human? Oh, right, because it makes people who play it go insane.

Go read #16 on that list. If you laughed you'll be joining me in hell.
63. John Carter and 15 of the Biggest Movie Flops of All time.
First, John Carter is not a flop. It's made a profit. A movie that turns a profit is not a flop. A miss? Sure. A "Meh". Yeah we can go with that, but it is not a flop. Secondly, I saw Battlefield Earth in the theater. Yes, I knew what a was doing at the time, and wanted to be able to say I saw the worst movie ever in the theater.
51. 99 of the Hottest Fictional Women of 2012.
I have not watched an episode of this show yet, but did see a couple animated gifs of her, and I will check this show out. Smoking.
Never before had we even considered banging a ghost, but then the buxom Moira O'Hara fromAmerican Horror Story came along and we were shook to our sexual cores. FX's smash hit series introduced us to the fiery redheaded housekeeper, but there was something a little oddabout her. To women, she appears as an old woman, but to dudes she's the hot piece of service we know and love. She was one of the few helpful ghosts in the Harmon house, and at the end of the season worked to prevent any others from falling victim to its spell.
48. 10 Coolest Sidekicks in Science Fiction and Fantasy.
The most steadfast of Frodo's companions, and basically the true hero of the saga — Samwise is the one who gets the freaking job done. Like a lot of the other sidekicks on this list, he's pretty much the main reason the good guys win. Samwise seems like a simple gardener, but he has more heart and spirit — and more ingenuity — than most other Hobbits put together.
The gardener turns out to be a total bad-ass, that's pretty cool.
36. TV's Top 9 Warrior Women.
I really dislike Buffy at #7, but Danaerys is awesome because she starts out so meak and scared. She grows into being a fierce Goddess-Queen. Character development kids, it is important. And of course #1 is #1, no question.
33. 10 of the best Cyborgs, Androids, and Robots in TV
While Buck Rogers is not quite a popular as the show once was, it is still an iconic example of early SciFi fantasy going all the way back to the original novel Armageddon 2419 AD and the even earlier movie serials in the 1930's. The 1980's TV show is how most people of my generation best know Buck and we were introduced to his robot sidekick Tweede who wears the brilliant computer brain Dr. Theopolois around his neck. This comic duo all-in-one package idea has seldom been copied in other stories and is quite humorous and effective on the show. "Tweedtweedeee What's up Buck?"
I loved this little guy as a kid. He was two robots in one! If anything needs a reboot, it's Buck Rodgers.
