Thomas Fitzpatrick had two passions: drinking and flying planes. On September 30, 1956, on a bet after a night of drinking, Fitzpatrick stole a small plane from New Jersey and landed it on an extremely narrow Manhattan street, in the dark, in front of the bar he had been drinking at on St. Nicholas Avenue. Then, two years later, he did it again. In this latter police report, it was noted he said he had to do it again because a man at the bar openly doubted he really did it the first time….READ MORE

As I was doing the research for this week’s list I got impressed by two very interesting facts: the incredibly high volume of articles related to this topic and even more impressive, how inaccurate the vast majority of them are. As a music fan I will never understand by what standard the likes of Beyoncé, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Donna Summer could ever be considered “rock” artists, but then again most contemporary music media have a different definition of art and music on the whole, let alone rock music.
On this list, however, we will rank the true rock queens and goddesses who have served the genre we love better than any other. This is how we define rock music, ladies and gents….READ MORE
It looks like some people have it all in life: power, fame, influence, and money while most of us, everyday people, often look up to them and dream about becoming just like them.

On this list you will read about 25 rich and famous people that give new meaning to the saying “Everything comes with a price,” and who used their struggles in life as their main inspiration to achieve their greatest goals….READ MORE
I won’t even lie—the original plan for this Thursday’s list was to collect 11 badass quotes and lines from tough warriors, perverted emperors, and bloodthirsty leaders throughout history but the good angel inside me didn’t let me. As I was seeking quotes in the style of “This is Spartaaaaaa!” or “Come and get them,” both lines provided by the ultimate badass in history, Spartan king Leonidas, after the Persians committed the fatal mistake of asking him to surrender and lay down his weapons, I saw one awesome line by Francois Fenelon which says,
“All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers…..READ MORE
Every religion, ancient or contemporary, believes in the existence of spiritual creatures and powers whose existence can’t be proven with logic or science. The spirits are either good and serve God’s will (angels in Western culture) or are evil and corrupt, deceive, and hurt humans in the service of their leader’s (Satan) devious plan and purpose.
From ancient Greece, Persia, Israel and Egypt to medieval Europe and Japan there have been many tales told by people who have claimed to have encountered demons. However, despite the fact that none of these stories can be proven, the blind faith and superstitions passed from generation to generation will make most of us keep the lights on at night….READ MORE
It’s no secret that Hollywood has always been sequel-crazy mainly because some directors seem to be either too ambitious or just too greedy and after they have an unexpected hit in the box office they just can’t stop releasing one sequel after another. If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, Rocky, and Terminator, you probably know exactly what we’re talking about.
On the other hand, there have been quite a few films that for one reason or another desperately needed a sequel but unfortunately never got one. Some of the most obvious reasons there should be sequels for such films are all the questions we’re left hanging with as the first film ends, what-if scenarios that are still nagging us, and simply because the first film was way too awesome and gained an enormous fan base that demand more….READ MORE
