A good cook will often take their culinary skills for granted, because they most likely learned to cook when they were young and can't remember what it's like to feel lost in the kitchen.
On the other hand, those who seriously can't cook see the skill as some kind of high level wizardry, and when they try to do anything more than boil a pot of water the skill of cooking seems impossible.
Certain cylindrical foods are a big hit with the competitive eating crowd because they're easy to chomp down by the dozen, but I can't recall ever seeing an eating contest involving egg rolls.
On one hand they seem like they'd be fairly easy to eat, and tasty enough to keep the eater going, but the fact that they're deep fried makes them seem like a heart attack inducing choice for an eating challenge.
Deadpool proved he has what it takes to make lots of moolah as a leading man when his movie Deadpool made over 130 million dollars on its opening weekend, making some people wonder what's so great about that masked merc Deadpool.
But as this comic by Julia Lepetit of Dorkly proves Deadpool is less about the character Deadpool and more about the actor Ryan Reynolds' rise from the ashes of the Green Lantern fiasco...or maybe it's just a super cool superhero flick about Deadpool.
When archaeologists uncover historical artifacts they're hopeful their find will be noteworthy and tied to a well known figure or civilization, or at very least something they can be proud to share with the world.
However, archaeologists know amazing discoveries are surrounded by hundreds of crappy ones, and the trick is recognizing the well used toilet seat from the Roman Empire you found near Hadrian's Wall in Northern England as the diamond in the dung that it is!
These days Kanye West is known less for his "music" and more for his utter lunacy, and it's anybody's guess whether the whole thing is just a cry for attention or simply the result of fame taking a toll on his mental health.
If Kanye wants people to take him seriously ever again in his lifetime he should probably stop posting all those crazy Tweets and cancel his social media accounts!
But if you're a fan of Twitter based comedy then you'll be hard pressed to find any Tweeter nuttier, zanier or more madcap than Kanye West, he's like the (insert crazy comedian's name here) of our time!
When people get tired of creating content about alternate princess costumes or easter eggs found in Disney films they resort to formulating opinion based pieces that start all sorts of arguments.
The Official Disney Movie Matrix is one of those opinion based, argument inducing pieces.
Now that you've taken a look at the way Willie Muse and Amir Khan ranked and classified some of your favorite Disney films you've probably got a few bones to pick with them.
Why did they relegate The Black Cauldron to the bottom left corner when it's clearly belongs on an entirely different matrix labeled "awesomest of all Disney films"?
Why is Lilo & Stitch sitting squarely in the middle when it's totally out of this world? And Hunchback of Notre Dame is "genuinely great" while Fox And The Hound is "not your favorite" and "doesn't hold up"? Poppycock!
The comb-over is the last bastion of the bald(ing) and desperate who refuse to accept their hair loss and think that by sweeping strands across their bare pate they're effectively conceal the baldness.
Some guys go bald and that's okay, and guys who see the comb-over as a hairstyle are on the borderline of acceptable, but if you think you're fooling the world with your comb-over think again.
The craft beer revolution is in full swing, and there are so many types of beer out there that some of them sound made up, leaving those who thought they knew their beer feeling a bit befuddled.
But as you'll discover when you visit the interactive visual guide to Beer Styles at CraftBeer.com there are many different shades, degrees of opacity and flavors of beer out there, from the dark and roasty stout to the lightly colored yet cloudy sour.

With a little help from this nearly exhaustive guide you'll know what to order next time you're faced with a row of taps at the bar. Hoppy days are here again!
For some the English language already has way too many "vulgar" terms, but those of us who like a bit of colorful language in our lives are always on the lookout for new entries to add to our book of bad words.
And thanks to Francis Grose's book Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue: A Dictionary of Buckish Slang, University Wit, and Pickpocket Eloquence, which was first published in 1811 and is now available in its entirety via Project Gutenberg, we can talk trash like they did in the olden days.
Legendary guitarists don't use industrial machinery to shred on guitar, but Auguie Henry of SSI Shredding Systems, who never got to live out his rock 'n' roll dreams, prefers to let the Dual-Shear Shredders do all the shredding for him.
For Auguie, the sound of an electric guitar being shredded by the whirling Dual-Shear blades is the sweetest rock ballad he will ever play.
The works of J.R.R. Tolkien have yet to be fully adapted for the big screen, and even though Peter Jackson's films delivered a few dozen hours of material from Tolkien's stories lots of great content and characters haven't made it into the movies.
Some of the biggest and baddest villains in Tolkien's lore, such as Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, or Ungoliant, mother of all giant spiders in Middle Earth, were featured in The Silmarillion, a posthumous collection put together by Christopher Tolkien that many see as the prequel to The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings.
Morgoth will definitely make his way onto the big screen if an adaptation of The Silmarillion is ever made, and when he does we may get to see his dragon Ancalagon the Black in action.
Ancalagon was so large and fearsome it was said he could "blot out the sun from miles away", and when he died his fallen body was responsible for destroying a volcanic mountain range, which led to the destruction of the northwestern portion of Middle-Earth.
Something tells me that sequence will be done in CGI...
Many kids who grew up in the 80s and 90s dreamed of becoming a young doctor like Doogie Howser, because he made the whole thing look so cool. But there's a reason most doctors have to go through nearly a decade of schooling before the lives of patients are put into their capable hands, and that's because untrained doctors can lead to untimely deaths. However, those thoughts never entered 18-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson's mind when he set up the New Birth New Life Medical Center and Urgent Care LLC in Palm Beach, Florida. His bio at the website says,
Dr. Malachi A. Love-Robinson is a a well rounded professional that treats, and cares for patients, using a system of practice that bases treatment of physiological functions and abnormal conditions on natural laws governing the human body. Dr Love-Robinson utilizes physiological, psychological, and mechanical methods, such as air, water, light, heat, earth, phototherapy, food and herb therapy, psychotherapy, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, mechanotherapy, naturopathic corrections and manipulation, and natural methods or modalities, together with natural medicines, natural processed foods, and herbs and nature’s remedies.
Not only did he set up the website, he was also seeing patients! According to the Charlotte Observer, the Florida Department of Health sent him a cease-and-desist order, but Love-Robinson continued to practice.
The health department called the Sheriff’s Office and members of the Palm Beach Narcotics Task Force to investigate. They sent in an undercover officer. After that officer received a medical exam and advice from the young doctor, they arrested him.
Last year, Love-Robinson was briefly detained by West Palm Beach police after he was found wandering around St. Mary’s Medical Center wearing a doctor’s coat and interacting with patients. Kent said Love-Robinson, then 17, was in his office and introduced himself as an anesthesiologist, but Kent became suspicious because of Love-Robinson’s youthful looks.
The teenager’s grandfather said it was a big misunderstanding, and that Love-Robinson never claimed to be a medical doctor, just a holistic doctor, for which he had online degrees. Now Love-Robinson has been arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license, and with any luck Malachi will get to play doctor again...with his cellmate!
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are one of those Hollywood couples who like to share their love with the world, appearing alongside each other in everything from commercials to big budget movies.
And while it may seem a bit sappy at times their partnership is also enviable, sharing the spotlight and helping each other shine.
But they are both actors after all, and sometimes they don't know how to shut off that star power and just enjoy a trip abroad, which results in the creation of "projects" like this ridiculous music video called "Africa".
With virtually every death comes the funeral service, where people get together to bid the dearly departed farewell and hopefully get a bit of closure from the whole experience.
But these memorial gatherings also make people feel mighty anxious, as they wonder what to wear, who to bring, and whether they should attend if they're of a different faith.
As a rule the dress code is conservative and earth toned, you should bring kids because they'll brighten spirits at the service, and out of respect for the dead you should leave your religious hangups at home.
Believe it or not, there are actually gamers out there who have never played Tetris, and for their sake someone needs to deliver an honest and trustworthy review of the game so n00bs know what they're getting into.
It's hard to forget your first love, especially if they're the "one that got away" or, adversely, the one that you ran away from after a messy breakup, and most of us leave that first relationship with some unspoken sentiments.
Whether these sentiments are good or bad most exes have a burning desire to speak their mind after a breakup, so artist Röra Blue is giving them the chance to have their say with the #UnsentProject.
Röra turns unspoken sentiments people submit to her, plus the color the sender associates with their first love, into small notes she sticks up around town.
Now the exes can have their say without having to face their first loves, and the world can share a smile about the time they felt the same way about someone they once loved.
Once upon a time MTV aired a twisted satirical kiddie show called Wonder Showzen, which featured puppets doing inappropriate things, on the spot interviews that made people angry, and overdubbed clips from old kids shows like Vegetable Soup.
Wonder Showzen was obviously meant for adults and was cancelled after its second season about 10 years ago, but that didn't stop pastor Daniel Castle from condemning the show for being a gateway drug to Satan addiction.
It seems pastor Castle thinks that quaint little MTV show was the real deal, and he's not gonna stand by and watch the youth of America be "spiritually exploited" by one the most evil shows ever made.
Turns out this isn't an ordinary cat video, it's a segment from the rarely seen 1964 film The Three Lives Of Thomasina, where Thomasina gets a taste of heaven before being sent back because she has eight more lives to go.
It may predate the internet by three decades, but it's definitely the trippiest cat video I've ever seen online!
It's hard to believe that we've been driving automobiles for over a hundred years, and yet some people still don't know how to check their oil, replace an air filter or, worst of all, pump their own gas.
Think a bigger engine block is safer in a front-end collision? That giant hunk of steel will shift back towards the driver just like a small block in an accident.
Think convertibles are more dangerous than regular cars?
While that used to be true, the convertibles of today have to adhere to strict safety standards, and many models feature roll bars that protect a passenger's head in case of a rollover.
And speaking of pumping gas- did you know getting in and out of your car while at the pump can generate unsafe levels of static electricity? Don't risk your life, just wait until you're done pumping before you get back in your car!
Not everyone has the time, artistic talent or dedication to make show accurate costumes and accessories when they feel like cosplaying, and up until recently that meant buying good looking props at a premium.
But now Marvel Comics and Hasbro have teamed up to make all of our superheroic cosplay dreams come true by releasing an incredibly detailed, totally accurate and actually affordable line of accessories.
Both Captain America's shield and Iron Man's helmet will sell for $100 each, which is a small price to pay when you consider some prop builders charge hundreds for props that don't quite have the right look.
Many of the accessories in the line are modeled after, if not cast straight from, the props used in the current Marvel movies, so saying they're spot on is an understatement.
And imagine all the oohs and aahs you'll hear when you detach the face mask from Iron Man's helmet and let everyone get a peek inside!
It's hard to watch this video without wondering how long this guy has gone without a Double Double, and why he chose to eat in instead of taking it home, because this is the kind of chowing down most decent folks only do at home!
The microwave has been an integral part of the home kitchen for over half a century, and yet we're constantly told it emits radiation, makes food unhealthy and cooking anything covered in foil can start a fire.
But we've all knows somebody who stands right in front of the microwave oven while they're food cooks or sticks tin foil covered dishes in the micro and doesn't even bat an eyelash as sparks fly inside the machine. So what's the real deal?
Truth is foil is fine in the microwave as long as it covers less than 1/4 of the food, and as long as the sheet is kept flat it won't spark, since the sparks are caused by the crinkles in the foil.
It's a sad but true fact that most people who are missing for years, if not decades, are either deceased or really don't want to be found, but there are a few people out there who are lost due to unusual circumstances.
In the case of Edgar Latulip the unusual nature of his missing persons case was caused by a head injury which resulted in amnesia, and for 30 years he lived under an identity he'd assumed after the injury.
The developmentally disabled man went "missing" in 1986 at age 21, but strangely he'd taken up residence just 120 kilometers from his hometown of Kitchener, Ontario:
A police report stated Latulip, who was considered developmentally delayed and had the mental capacity of a 12-year-old, may have taken a bus to Niagara Falls. A missing persons report also said Latulip suffered from mental health problems.
In fact, police said, he travelled to St. Catharines, about 120 kilometres southeast of his hometown.
Shortly after arriving, he fell and suffered a head injury, Const. Philip Gavin of the Niagara Regional Police told CBC News. This caused him to have limited memory of his past and who he was. He created a new identity for himself.
On Jan. 7, Latulip met with a social worker and told her he thought he was somebody else, Gavin said. The social worker found his missing persons case file and police were then called in. Latulip volunteered to have a DNA test done and on Monday, the results came back indicating he was Latulip.
