You see black and yellow out of the corner of your eye, hear that droning sound, and immediately start flailing. Sting! It's gonna sting me! Most people don't care if its a bee, wasp or hornet, they just don't want to get stung. But the suborder of Apocrita (which contains all bees, wasps and hornets) is an amazing, talented group - and not just the branch of the family that gives us honey. Wasps also perform a vital service controlling pest populations at a scale you probably haven't considered. Sure, they can all sting... but, important note: they don't give a crap about stinging you in the first place. And if they do sting you - guess why? Because of all that flailing around you're doing.

What are facts about bees and wasps? Take a look at this list and you'll find out.

<![CDATA[The Most Influential Contemporary Americans]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-most-influential-contemporary-americans A list of the Americans who have had the most central influence on, or importance to, the modern era. This would include Americans who have most significantly altered the course of events from roughly the 1980s onward. So while someone like Ronald Reagan or Steve Jobs might very well apply, figures like Franklin D. Roosevelt or even Martin Luther King Jr. would probably not be considered contemporary enough to qualify.

Americans from every walk of life and every industry have managed to profoundly influence the country. This can include efforts to alter the culture or perspective of Americans, technological or scientific innovations that forever changed the way we live, business achievements which altered the course of one or multiple industries, or political decisions that permanently shifted later events in America and the world.

Vote for the Americans below you think had the greatest impact on the way we live today. Or if you don't see your selection, add it by making your own list.

<![CDATA[The Best Autobiographical Novels]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-autobiographical-novels/ranker-books This list is about the best autobiographical novels; it answers the question, “What are the best autobiographies of all times?” An autobiography can be gripping, motivating and lighthearted at the same time. It allows a reader to truly get to see the world through the author’s perspective, creating a unique sense of empathy. It allows us to open up our minds to someone else’s beliefs and struggles.What distinguishes an autobiography from a biography is that it is written directly from an author about the author’s life; a biography is written by another person other than the author himself. For example, “The Autobiography of Albert Einstein” was written by himself with the help of a good friend Gerhard Roth. However, “Einstein: His Life and Universe” by Walter Isaacson was a book written by an author about the life of another person. The effects of reading an autobiography and a biography are very similar: both can capture the reader’s soul potentially more than any other literary type of work out there. A person can be emotionally moved by a great work of fiction, but a true story about an actual human being can take a reader beyond their emotions into actual motivations about the important things in life.Is there an autobiography that has meant a lot to you?

A singer or band can see their profile grow and become mainstream stars, allowing them to continue making music for years to come - all thanks to an ACM win. Some country musicians who win an ACM can even obtain widespread, mainstream success. While this doesn't happen often, many country singers have reaped the benefits of winning a prestigious ACM. 

Usually, if a musician wins big at the Academy of Country Music Awards, they've either cemented their status as a country star or are touted as the next big thing. So, who are the best artists to win an ACM? With country music's rich history, it should come as no surprise to see legends like Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Loretta Lynn, and Willie Nelson on this list. The same goes for up-and-comers like Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, The Band Perry, and Kacey Musgraves. All of these country musicians are the shining examples of how important winning an ACM can be to an artist's career.

That said, it's up to you determine which of these country singers (some are even considered the greatest country artists of all time) are the best to have ever taken home an ACM. Remember, only musicians who have won an ACM are eligible on this list.

<![CDATA[Athletes Who Have Killed People]]> http://ranker.com/list/athletes-who-have-killed-people/people-in-sports Death by athlete: it could happen to you. Several famous boxers, NFL players, NBA stars, and other athletes have killed people. Some of these athletes accidentally killed after being involved in car accidents, while others brutally murdered their victims. From first-degree homicide to accidental manslaughter, these sports stars will have the deaths of innocent people on their consciences forever. Whatever the explanation, these athletes are technically killers.

Who is the most famous athlete who killed someone? Ray Lewis tops our list. In 2000, Ray Lewis and his friends were involved in a fight that resulted in the stabbing deaths of two people. Lewis made a plea deal to provide testimony against his companions in exchange for prosecutors dropping the murder charges. He was fined $250,000 by the NFL and reached settlements with the victims' families.

For some sports stars, the deaths came as part of the jobs. On March 24, 1962 Emile Griffith went 12 rounds against Benny "the Kid" Paret. The fight ended when Paret went into a coma after being punched 29 consecutive times. He died in the hospital 10 days later. The fight was televised live on ABC.

Big cats are serious business. What's a big cat? Well, a lion is one. The term technically includes five members of the Panthera genus, along with cougars, cheetahs, and the clouded leopard. This list of big cats includes all these cool Felidae, ranked by their awesomeness.

Where do big cats live? Like, pretty much all over the place. There are big cats in Asia, Africa, the Americas, Real America, India, Iran, you name it! You name it and there are probably big kitty cats there. Cats.

The most notable difference between big cats and house cats is that big cats, like tigers for example, don't spend as much time trying to fit into shoe boxes or make houses out of paper bags. The most notable similarity between, let's say, jaguars and your tabby is that they all LOVE Friskies Beachside Crunch Party Mix.

<![CDATA[30 Careers That Were Ruined by Social Media]]> http://ranker.com/list/fired-over-social-media/jacob-shelton For all intents and purposes, social media is a great thing. It helps you keep in contact with friends and family across the globe, you can find out about all manner of cool stuff going on in your neck of the woods, and you get to be on the ground floor when a person or corporation has a total meltdown. Occasionally, these social media mistakes have led to hasty firings and many people who instantly regretted their tweets and Facebook posts, having lots of time to reminisce, thanks to their newly unemployed lifestyle.

If you're lucky enough, you get to see these social media faux pas and Twitter meltdowns happen in real time. This list is all about those moments when someone put a thought into the digital landscape without realizing that what they said could be read by one important person, or by millions of consumers ready to tear apart their corporate overlords, 140 characters at a time. These posts resulted in people with no job, ruined careers, and a whole lot of time on their hands all of a sudden.

We've all said things that we wish we could take back, and in the 21st century, we've all written things on social media we wish we could delete forever. Most of us are lucky in that our online lives haven't popped up to stab us in the back in the middle of a board meeting or while we're having a dinner with our parents. Most people haven't been fired over Twitter posts or let go thanks to a Facebook photo, but not the people on this list.

These people led normal lives, hated their bosses, and liked to party. The only difference between them and you is that they put something negative on social media and the world sat up and listened. While that may seem like a good thing, the folks on this list didn't think so at the time - most of them lost their jobs, were fired over Facebook, and faced a landslide of mockery that continues to this day.

Who has made the biggest social media mistakes and been fired for social media posts? Read on to find out and let us know about your own Twitter or Facebook blunders in the comments. We promise we won't use them against you.

<![CDATA[The Best Country Albums to Not Win an ACM Award]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-country-albums-to-not-win-an-acm-award/ranker-music Over the years, there have been a number of times that the Academy of Country Music Awards voters have gotten it right with their selections in the major categories. However, there are still a bunch of albums that have not taken home the trophy. Some of the greatest country albums of all time, you'd be surprised to learn, haven't been honored. While this might seem obvious, there are still a number of egregious snubs and top, acclaimed albums that weren't recognized. There are plenty of critical darlings, and even best selling albums on this list that weren't nominated for country music's biggest award.

A number of outstanding albums are on this list of Album of the Year snubs. After all, people generally consider albums like Dixie Chicks's Home, Keith Urban's Get Closer, and Shania Twain's Come on Over to be classics. Yet, these distinctly different albums - many of which are widely considered the artist's seminal album - didn't win an ACM award.

So, it's up to you to pick the best album that didn't win Best Album at the ACM awards. All of these albums should have won something, so you can't go wrong. It will be interesting to see what other great records don't take home the hardware in the years to come.

<![CDATA[The Best Dog Breeds]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-dog-breeds List of favorite dog breeds, mainly gauged by the animals' suitability as pets in homes and apartments. Because of thousands of years of selective breeding by humans, dogs come in a tremendous variety of sizes, shapes, colors, temperments and behaviors. They are the only animal to have so much variation in appearance without branching into a separate species.

Though groups like the American Kennel Club make very specific designations about breeds and breed hybrids, there continue to be new breeds and breed variants developed all the time, as well as "up and coming breeds" not officially recognized by kennel clubs and experts. (Many dogs not purchased directly from breeders are also mixed-breeds of some kind, or have less than purebred ancestry.)

Dog breeds are typically divided into a few basic categories: companion dogs, guard dogs, hunting dogs, herding dogs and working dogs. Despite the names, in contemporary America, most breeds - even hunting or herding dogs - service as companies for individuals and families.

Pick your favorite dog breeds from the list below and vote them up, and if your favorite breed or hybrid dog is not currently listed, make your own version of the list and add it there yourself!

<![CDATA[The Best TV Characters of the 1990s]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-tv-characters-of-the-90s/ranker-tv Who were the best TV characters of the '90s? From “Frasier,” “Friends,” and “Married With Children” all the way to kid favorites like “Clarissa Explains it All,” “Doug,” and “Saved By the Bell,” these shows greatly impacted 90s culture and made it the memorable decade it was. This list has the best television characters from all those classic 1990's TV shows.

It was the decade we met Bart Simpson, Cosmo Kramer, and Frasier Crane. The top TV show characters of the 90's included family-focused favorites like Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, the obnoxious but lovable Steve Urkel, and Fresh Prince Will Smith. Nineties TV introduced many children's characters as well: Tommy Pickles, Batman, Doug.

This decade had an air of innocence and lightheartedness. The top characters of the 90's were, for the most part family-friendly, uplifting, and hilarious. Who will ever forget the girl-next-door Topanga Lawrence, and the importance of having an older, wiser soul rooting for you, like Mr. Feeney? The innocence of “Clarissa Explains it All,” “Family Ties,” and “Blossom,” reinforced family values, and other top '90s shows like “Friends,” “Roseanne,” and “The Cosby Show,” left us feeling like we were never alone in the world.

Vote up your favorite 1990s TV characters below and think back to when these guys came into your living room once a week. Then go find yourself a "Seinfeld" rerun. You know there's got to be one on.

<![CDATA[The Worst Hackers in Film and Television]]> http://ranker.com/list/fictional-hackers/jacob-shelton Thanks to the Sony hack, everyone is worried about his or her personal cyber security. Moms are freaking out about their banking information going out into cyberspace and all dads everywhere are worried about their families finding out about their crippling online poker addiction. For years, film and television writers have tried to crystallize what a hacker is and explain it to the technophobes of the world, but more often than not their depictions of console cowboys are one note and completely flat. Why write a nuanced character when all you need to do is slap some black hair dye on an actor and make them spout a bunch of techno babble? On this list you'll find some of the worst hackers in film and television, from Superman 3 to CSI.

A lot of the hackers on this list come from the time capsule that was the '90s: a time when everything felt possible and no one knew what was coming next from Silicon Valley. Some writers felt that virtual reality was the next step in the burgeoning technological evolution, while others thought that we'd be jamming information straight into our heads by the year 2000. Almost no one assumed that we would be carrying around tiny computers in our pockets. Regardless, hacking in movies and hackers on TV often missed the mark, leaving us with these hacker characters, who definitely leave something to be desired.

So with the sense of superiority that comes with hindsight, we're looking back at the hackers of film and television's yesterday and laughing our virtual faces off at their anachronism, ridiculous techno speak, and dumb hair. Vote up the hacker you think is the worst, and feel free to add anyone we missed from hacking films.

<![CDATA[The Best Movies with Twist Endings]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-movies-with-twist-endings/anncasano Spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen all these classic twist ending movies!

Remember how you felt the first time you realized the true identity of Keyser Soze? Or the disbelief regarding the ending of Memento? This is a list of the best twist endings in cinema history. You know, the kind of conclusions that make your jaw-drop, your heart stop, and your head hurt. This collection features all your favorite shocking and surprising movie endings, that left you speechless, but which of these movies with twist endings are truly the best? It's time to vote!

Certain directors have a knack for telling stories that make you shriek OMG or WTF during Act III. Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is so innovative with his twist endings, that even when we’re searching for them, we still can’t find them anywhere in the narrative. Auteur directors like Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige) and David Fincher (The Game, Se7en, Fight Club) are also repeat twist-ending offenders/geniuses/brain-benders, who somehow shock us to our core, despite the jaded media-rich world we live in.

Will you need to watch all of these films repeatedly to truly absorb the twists? Absolutely. These movies were actually meant to be watched several times. Think you can spot evidence of the twist in a film like Fight Club? Fincher wants you to find the clues (after you’ve seen the movie once), in fact the clues are everywhere within frame. You just have to look for them.

Many films today have some sort of plot twist within the story. The movies listed here are simply the best use of the shocking device. Did we miss any of your beloved jaw-droppers? Let us know in the comment section and be sure to vote up best movies with twist endings below!

These photos are particularly candid because no one is more themselves than when they are with their friends.

<![CDATA[Crazy Game of Thrones Fan Theories That Might Be True]]> http://ranker.com/list/game-of-thrones-conspiracy-theories/lisa-waugh One spoiler ahead!! George R. R. Martin does not mind fan theories. In fact, he’s said that fans have guessed at plot lines correctly. But… he won’t verify those theories because he’s still got his book series to finish and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss still have lots of story to tell. The Game of Thrones books and the HBO show are full of characters and possibilities, and the long time between each new Game of Thrones book and new season of the show leaves fans with only one thing to do: speculate.

However, Martin says he's not going to be influenced by what fans think or want. And as we know, he’ll kill a character faster than you can say valar morghulis. “Let them have the debates and discussions among themselves. I’m very gratified that so much discussion has taken place but I’m not going to let that influence how I write the books. I’m going to write the books the way I always planned to write the books and let the chips fall where they may.” But that doesn't stop fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire world from making predictions and concocting theories about what's really going on in Wessos and Essos - and this list of GoT fan theories has the most interesting ones on the Internet.

Fans spends thousands of hours online and at cons swapping their GoT theories. And because they know just how Martin’s mind works and have pored through the books at great length, their theories are true to form with the world they stem from. 

So what are the most popular and (more importantly) most believable ASOIAF fan theories? Upvote those that might just be on point and downvote the theories obviously written by someone wearing a tinfoil hat in their basement. Have a theory of your own? Let us know in the comments section!

He freaked out (reportedly he didn’t like her lipstick) and we all followed suit. In a world where everything feels planned to a T, the kiss felt natural (based on Drake’s reaction) but there’s no way to be sure. It just goes to show that Madonna still knows how to grab a headline. On this list you’ll see Madonna’s other on-stage kisses, and decide where they rank from top to bottom.

For almost 40 years Madonna has been expressing herself and shocking the world, and now she’s taken to doing it all over Drake’s face. But he’s not the first person to share a stage with Madge to get a smooch (even if he did get one of the better kisses IOHP). She’s swapped spit with some of pop music’s elite, and a few people who’s names we can’t pronounce (either because they’re French or we plain just don’t know their names) and now it’s up to you to decide who had the best on stage kiss with Madonna. Was it Drake and his very mopey make out? Or was it with Britney in her nightmare wedding dress at the VMAs? You be the judge. And you’re welcome for not including any photos of Vanilla Ice.

Titles like Batgirl, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Ms. Marvel have been a huge success and we here at Ranker Comics want more comic book reboots! We went ahead and put together a list of prime candidates for a comic book make over that we want to see!

The new DC Comics take on Batgirl envisions her as a young college student dealing with a blooming social life and the constant presence of social media, following her crime fighting career - so why not do something like that for Robin, Kitty Pryde, or Spider-Man?! Ms. Marvel inserted a fresh face into the titular role, which brought a diverse, new audience to comic shops. A reboot like this would be great for Blue Beetle, New Mutants, and Defenders!

From the obscure to the under-served, this list compiles superheroes that could use a fresh coat of paint. There is some attention from other mediums, like TV shows and movies, surrounding these characters and now would be a great time to give them a reboot and maybe get some different audiences into comic book stores, or at least give the fans something new and exciting!

<![CDATA[Popular Quotes That Everyone Gets Wrong]]> http://ranker.com/list/famous-misquotes/mike-rothschild The Internet is full of quotes that the people they're attributed to never said. Some of these famous misquotes end up as inspirational pablum on Facebook walls, others are used to push forth false versions of history. Most are taken at face value and accepted as part of the canon, despite rarely having any justification. Some of these quotes attributed to the wrong person are obviously fake, yet never questioned.

But even a tiny bit of scholarship can shed the light of truth on most famous misquotes. You might not be able to set the record straight, but at least you'll know who really said what - and if anyone even said it at all. When it comes to famous sayings, notable quotes, and popular ideas, their source might often be generally misattributed.

So did Leonardo da Vinci really extol the virtues of "doing some stuff?" Did Shakespeare warn us not to "play with the feelings of others?" Did Bill Gates really think 640K of memory was "enough for anyone?" What of Orwell and his "rough men?" Or Dr. Seuss telling us about those who matter and those who mind? Did any of these people say any of this stuff?

This list features all kinds of incredibly famous quotes everyone gets wrong from all periods of history that are all over the Internet, attributed to people who never even said them.

<![CDATA[The Shortest Wars in History]]> http://ranker.com/list/shortest-wars-in-history/mike-rothschild While most the well-known wars in history dragged on for years, even decades, many wars in the last century were extremely short. Border disputes, tensions over ethnic populations, trade issues, hangovers from the two world wars or long-simmering pent-up hostilities have all exploded into shooting wars - many lasting just a few weeks or even a few days. In one case, the war was over in less than an hour.

Whether these shortest wars were low intensity conflicts with just a few casualties or brutal, bloody wars that were ended before they could get worse, these wars might have been short, but they were all historically important. The shortest wars in history have taken place on all different continents, between many different countries, over many historical eras. A short war is certainly better than a long, drawn-out war, so at least these historical battles and skirmishes were ended quickly.

What was the shortest war in history? Check out this list of short wars to find out!

<![CDATA[The Best Things from Oregon]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-things-from-oregon/amylindorff Oregon is a pretty cool state. Lots of fun things come from the 33rd US State, like good coffee, sweet running shoes, and lots and lots of delicious beer. There are plenty of companies founded in Oregon, more than a few famous people from Oregon, and a number of great bands and musicians who got their start in the Beaver State. But what are the best things from Oregon? Why don't you vote below?

Whether you prefer Stumptown or Coava, Nike or Columbia Sportswear, the Ducks or the Beavers, Ninkasi or Rogue, there are lots of top notch Oregon products to choose from. Do you think it's silly that the PDX Airport carpet was the Grand Marshal of the 2015 Starlight Parade? Were you part of the ruckus when the University of Oregon wanted to change the Made in Oregon sign? Then you probably have an opinion about the great Oregon-grown and Oregon-made products and companies below.

Then there are the people. From Matt Groening, David Fincher, and Ty Burrell to bands like The Dandy Warhols and The Decemberists, Oregon is a breeding ground for famous and artistic folk. Plus there is Tillamook Cheese. Do not even get me started on Tillamook Cheese.

So whether you root for the Timbers or the Blazers, cast your votes for the best Oregon things below. Don't see your favorite Oregon products, people, or companies on this list? Add them for other Oregon fans to vote for as well.
