Pulling off a wedding in secret if you are an A-list celebrity is no easy feat. These are people, remember, who are literally stalked by the paparazzi virtually 24/7. Once the press gets wind of an engagement, the Great Wedding Watch begins. Some clever couples have managed to shock the world with their top secret nuptials.

Secretly married celebrities include some of the biggest names in film, television and music. Examples, you say? In 2008, two of the greatest musical minds came together in wedded bliss when Jay-Z married Beyonce, in secret. Months later, the world got its first glimpse of Bey's stunning wedding ring! And in June of 2010, Hollywood hottie Megan Fox married longtime boyfriend Brian Austin Greene in a secret ceremony in Hawaii.

Some celebrities seem particularly adept at pulling off top-secret weddings. Case in point: Actor Ryan Reynolds secretly married Scarlett Johansson in 2008 in a remote part of Canada. Years later, Reynolds again married in secret, this time to starlet Blake Lively, in a quite ceremony in South Carolina. Their wedding was certainly among the biggest of 2012.

In case you were wondering, not all of the couples with secret weddings stay together forever. Some celebs will or have wound up on lists of celebrity breakups. That's not entirely surprising, now is it? That being said, it is possible that many of the famous couples listed here will see their relationships stand the test of time. They might even make a list of the longest lasting celebrity marriages some day!

<![CDATA[The Best Shows That Were Canceled in 2014]]> http://ranker.com/list/2014-and-_39_s-canceled-shows/ranker-tv This list of 2014's canceled shows will include all major television programs that get the ax over the course of the year on any network, including cable TV. Which shows will survive and which will be yanked? These days, networks act fast: If a show isn't performing ratings-wise, network execs don't hesitate to cancel it, sometimes after just one or two episodes. Producing programs is an expensive business, and the competition for ratings is fierce. Many networks just decide to cut their losses early, before things get totally out of hand.

Which TV shows got canceled in 2014? Expect this list to grow greatly as the season unfolds. Already, in January of 2014, NBC pulled the plug on the Sean Hayes sitcom "Sean Saves the World," stopping production even though it had committed to five additional episodes. The year began as a perilous one for comedies (most of which were not on this list of the best current TV sitcoms, by the way). HBO decided to nix two of its new comedies, "Hello Ladies" and "Family Tree," after just one season each. Dramas were also on the block, with ABC yanking the spy miniseries "The Assets" after just two episodes aired (the show was supposed to be an eight-parter).

So, take a look at this list, vote up the shows you loved the most, and will miss the most, and vote down any that you absolutely agree needed to be canceled. Just remember: For every show canceled, at least one, or possibly five more, will grow in its place. Don't lose hope, because new TV shows in 2014 do look promising. Check out this list of the new TV trailers for 2014. See? Hope springs eternal!

Animals of all shapes and sizes have different kinds of strengths. Deciding which animals are the strongest really depends on how you define strength. Do you define strength as the sheer power of an animal, how much they can carry pound-for-pound, or the strength of their bite? This list includes land mammals, marine animals, and insects, all of which are ridiculously strong, in one way or another.

Some animals can carry large amounts of weight, up to several times their own body mass, while others have really strong and ferocious bites. Do you think you know what the strongest animal is? You might be shocked to find out that some of the smallest animals are actually the strongest pound-for-pound.

The top two strongest living things are beetles (yes—beetles!) and the strongest mammal is a gorilla. Which other animals are the strongest on Earth? Take a look at this list, and consider which creatures you would not want to go head to head with.

With Jay Leno's heartfelt goodbye on February 6, 2014 from the Tonight Show, it's a good time to remember and re-watch the finale episodes of the most popular former talk show hosts. This list is ranked according to the legacy of these TV hosts and which one put on the last final show. 

Whether these shows were canceled due to ratings (Tom Snyder), lack of advertisers (Politically Incorrect), changes in the network (The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien) or because it was time to retire (Johnny Carson) the final episode can be tough for a TV talk show host or news anchor. Hosts, especially those who have been on air for a long time, become a big part of American households. When it is time to say goodbye, they often leave with a departing message of gratitude or thanks. Sometimes they even cry!

The best parts about going to college and reasons why University is the best time of your life. While college is different for everyone, there are some fundamental similarities: everyone is mostly broke, optimistic, open to new experiences and willing to try new things. Many people think that living in a community of people who share the same values and hopes as you is the thing you will miss most about college. Others will mostly miss the hot girls (or guys), parties and opportunities to take a vacation every few months.

What will you miss about college? How do you make the most of your time in college? The answer just may be to realize all of the great things that you have before you graduate and take advantage of them. Does life after college suck? If you keep dwelling on the past, sometimes it can feel that way. But remember once you graduate you still have a lot of learning to do.

There's always a variety. This is Hollywood, after all, so it's not out of the question to expect celebrity splits. Some couples will call things off after years together, and others will call it quits after a matter of days (or even hours). This list includes all of the most notable celeb break ups of 2014– the amicable and the ugly!

2013's biggest celebrity breakups included at least two Kardashians (Khloe and momager Kris Jenner), several teen heartthrobs (Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, again, and Taylor Swift and Harry Styles), at least one super wild child and her hot Hollywood hunk (Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth) and of course, George Clooney, who split from Stacy Keibler after two years (which seems to be his expiration date for relationships).

Who will be the most talked about, headline-grabbing celebrity break up of 2014? That remains to be seen, but rest assured, all of the biggest and worst splits will be listed here. These celebs may be world famous, but all the money in the world can't buy true love, after all.

<![CDATA[The Best Pivots in Internet History]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-pivots-in-internet-history/ready-to-startup The best pivots in Internet history tell the tales of the tech startups who began their journey to the top as one type of company then made a drastic change for the better. It's hard to think about a world without Internet giants like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, but without their well-timed pivots, they'd be much different from the companies we know today.

It may not be common knowledge, but many of the websites, social networks and online services that we all use daily almost never happened. Before logging into your Facebook account first thing in the morning, think about what might have been if the company remained a site to pick which of two faces were hottest. Imagine how you'd discover viral videos and listen to your favorite music had YouTube remained a video dating site. Try to comprehend how you'd get your news and hear when your coworker checked into Starbucks on Foursquare had the founders of Twitter stuck to their original idea of a home for podcasts.

It's hard to believe that all of these successful companies came from pivots but more companies than most would expect actually came as a second attempt. Before pioneering mobile phones Nokia produced everything from rubber boots to chemicals. Decades before becoming a leader in gaming Nintendo had ill-advised attempts at producing playing cards, operating a taxi service and even ran adult hotels first.

For startups, knowing when to pivot is perhaps one of the trickiest and most emotional parts of the job but as these successful Internet companies have proved, sometimes when things aren't going so well, changing course can be the key between becoming second fiddle to Foursquare, like the original version of Instagram, to becoming a property swooped up for a billion dollars, like the highly successful photo sharing platform that Instagram became.

These celebs might be bringing home awards for their stellar acting performances, but on Emmy 2014 night, they are not taking home any statues for their dreadful wardrobe choices. Want to see some better looks instead? Check out the 2014 Emmys best dressed too!

As much as we love these actresses for their talent, their charm and their beauty, on Emmy night 2014, they looked like a hot mess. Lena Dunham, we're looking at you. It's one thing to take a risk and go against the grain, but careful there.

Thankfully for Lena, she was far from the only actress who made an unfortunate fashion choice for the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards, which took place on Monday, August 25, 2014, at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Sarah Paulson, Louise Roe, Tassa Farmiga and Betsey Brandt all didn't impress.

Laura Prepon, Christina Hendrix and Julie Bowen, three women who are arguably beautiful, also failed to impress with their meh-worthy gowns. Better luck next year, ladies.

It's that time of year again! Time to stock up on school supplies & school accessories and head back to school. That hellishly depressing (or glorious, depending on whether or not you own any small children) period when the youngest, most naïve humans in our society are rounded up and forced brutishly into exile inside huge prison-like edifices where they are forced, for hours upon hours each day, to learn math.
 

On the brighter side of things, this is usually a pretty good time to go drop some cash on a swaggy new backpack and some art supplies, which you (or your children) will then use to painstakingly cling to sanity during the coming months of darkness. But what are the most popular brands of school supplies? Which school supplies are the best? Look at all the different types of adhesives! That backpack has kittens on it!

A statue immortalizes a mortal, ensuring that generations to come will remember what that person did and stood for.

Found in locations all over the world, the statues of these famous people were, in some cases, built as a memorial to the star, or in other cases, erected when the star was still alive.

If you'd like to rank these women on more than their beauty, consult The Best Actresses in Film History list. This list does not only include prettiest current actresses, but the most beautiful women in history.

So, who is the most beautiful woman ever? Of course, that woman may very well be a total unknown, but since it's impossible to list every woman who's ever existed, and one is less likely to rank people they don't know, this list will obviously be restricted to people who've achieved a fair level of celebrity. A "fair level of celebrity" is defined by being famous enough to have a profile page on Wikipedia or IMDB. Historical figures are accepted IF pictures of them are generally accepted as accurate. Add your own suggestions and this should hopefully be an ever expanding list.
