To them, Jon Hamm roles consisted of him being a funny fellow not a perpetual insular loner drinking himself through several marriages. As audiences were drinking in this Jon Hamm, the Jon Hamm funny machine was firing up. Enter the Hammbone.

While audiences were shocked by the Bridesmaids Jon Hamm, “Hammy’s” friends were already comfortable with that version of him and not the dapper alcoholic mentor of Peggy. They were shocked that he had a brooding side. Sarah Silverman calls him Hammy and said that she was totally weirded out when she tuned in to see her buddy on Mad Men. "I couldn't believe he was this smoldering, brooding sexual man. I was like, 'Oh my God—that's Hamm!' To me, he's just this super-silly idiot.”

Silverman’s idea of a Jon Hamm funny role is to make him sexually awkward in one of her skits. Saturday Night Live totally tapped into the actor’s inner oddball by writing some of the most epically strange Jon Hamm roles to date. Or at least, until Adult Swim got hold of his brilliance. His Derek Childrens cameo on Children’s Hospital is a beautiful homage to Dustin Hoffman’s big reveal in Tootsie - voice and all.

Hamm as a ham is high art and proof that he’s not just a chiseled from marble pretty face. Perhaps the reason these Jon Hamm minor roles work so well is because we just don’t expect incredibly good-looking people known for dark, serious roles to be funny. Like Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading or Jenny McCarthy before it all got weird.

Truth is, the Bridesmaids Jon Hamm is more real than Mad Men Jon Hamm. And that’s good news for fans who love his goofier side. Which funny Jon Hamm role do you prefer? The Falcon, Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, or a 25-year-old Hamm in 1996 on a dating show complete with a middle part in his hair? Sure, that latter Jon Hamm role wasn’t intended to be funny but in retrospect, it’s hilarious.

Upvote the best Jon Hamm funny/deadpan roles, whether from 30 Rock, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Archer, or Parks and Recreation, and embrace your favorite Hammy.

<![CDATA[People You Can't Believe Got Onstage for the 1989 Tour]]> http://ranker.com/list/1989-taylor-swift-tour-guests/jacob-shelton Taylor Swift's 1989 show has been a tour for the record books. Not only is she selling out massive arenas every night, she’s also been bringing all of her famous friends on stage with her to an equal amount of applause and confusion. Some of the1989 Taylor Swift tour guests make sense as she’s been known to collaborate on tunes with everyone from Kendrick Lamar to Ed Sheeran. But a lot of her guests have left fans saying “huh?” once the show has ended. Sure, Joan Baez is an influential folk singer, but do 15-year-old fans care about the woman who covered “Diamonds and Rust”? Probably not. Oddly enough, Joan Baez is just the tip of the iceberg of people you can’t believe agreed to get onstage for the 1989 tour.

1989 Taylor Swift tour cameos are like hot dogs. Initially they seem like a good idea, but after the whole thing is over you wish there’d been a better vetting process in place. All street food references aside, it makes sense for Swift to bring out her famous friends for the world to see. The 1989 Taylor Swift tour appearances are all part of the singer cementing herself as the new Queen of Pop Music. But it's still hard to believe some of the people she managed to convince to get on stage with her.

Vote up the celebrities that you can’t believe agreed to make a cameo during a concert on the 1989 tour, and feel free rerank as you see fit.

<![CDATA[Things That Aren't Nerdy Anymore]]> http://ranker.com/list/things-that-arent-nerdy-anymore/jacob-shelton From the 1950s until the end of the 20th century, being considered a nerd was about as good as having the Black Plague. If you were a nerd, people thought you were a social pariah and probably kicked sand in your face or broke your glasses. But after the turn of the millennium it suddenly became cool to be a nerd. It was like instead of all the computers exploding from Y2K, we entered an alternate dimension where nerdy stuff was cool and cool stuff was suddenly nerdy. Suddenly jocks were watching Star Wars and crocheting sweaters with the names of their favorites sports ball teams - life sure is weird. Other than science fiction and fancy sewing, here’s a list of other things that aren’t nerdy anymore.

It’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment when the public’s perception of the nerd, geeks, and geeky nerd culture shifted, but when things changed they changed in a big way. Comic-Con became the new Super Bowl, and E3 exploded into the NBA finals. But it’s not just the giant conferences that have become the bee’s knees among the hoi polloi, everything from gardening, to home brewing, and even the concept of dressing well has become super cool, and this is just the tip of the nerd iceberg.

This list compiles everything that’s no longer nerdy for your enjoyment. You can even vote up the stuff that’s gone from nerdy to cool, and add the nerdy thing that you do that’s been taken over by the cool kids and mainstream pop culture to this list.

<![CDATA[People You'd Like to See Host Saturday Night Live]]> http://ranker.com/list/people-who-should-host-snl/ranker-tv Lorne Michaels has his quirks and one of them is being picky about who should host SNL. Guest hosts are usually people who are popular at the time, worthy of the title, or the first people to pick up the phone when the dream Saturday Night Live hosts fall through. Who would you like to see host SNL in the future?
 
It’s shocking when you think about the people who haven’t hosted SNL yet and then you remember that Lindsay Lohan has. The hosting roster is at the mercy of which TV show or film is doing well at the time, which makes sense, but it’s thrown dirt on the dream Saturday Night Live hosts list.
 
Norman Reedus may have shot SNL cast member Pete Davidson on "Weekend Update" with a crossbow but that only served to tease fans. It’s not the same thing as hosting by a mile. Reedus is a funny guy, an expert licker of people’s faces, and up for anything - much like Kristen Bell, Will Arnett, Ilana Glazer, and countless other celebrities and funny actors who are on this list of people who should host SNL next.

If anyone on this list gets their chance to host the NBC sketch comedy show in the upcoming seasons, it will be updated here. In the meantime, consider your dream Saturday Night Live hosts. Which of the people who haven’t hosted SNL yet are most deserving? Upvote the people who should host Saturday Night Live and let the folks over at Studio 8H know what’s up.

<![CDATA[Celebrities You Would Not Want as a Stepmom]]> http://ranker.com/list/celebrities-you-would-not-want-as-a-stepmom/mel-judson The worst celebrity stepmoms are those women who probably should stay away from parenting. Whether they're hot messes like Janice Dickinson, snobs like Gwyneth Paltrow, or famously mean comedians like Roseanne Barr, these divas are definitely celebrities you wouldn't want as a stepmother. Could you imagine looking up to your stepmother Courtney Love or friend Pamela Anderson?

The worst potential stepmothers aren't just unlikable actresses like Katherine Heigl or reality show superstars like Mama June or Tan Mom. In fact, some of the last people you'd want as a stepmom are people who do absolutely nothing for millions of dollars like Kris Jenner and Sarah Palin. Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss also makes the cut of unlikely and unwanted step-mothers, while Michele Bachmann would scare the crap out of kids.

Upvote the celebrity women you would least want to become your dad's second wife, or add any wicked stepmother celebrities you think would make for a miserable step-family dynamic.

<![CDATA[The Most Anticipated Fall 2015 TV Shows]]> http://ranker.com/list/most-anticipated-fall-2015-tv-shows/ranker-tv Sure, everyone is sad to see summer end. However, if you look on the bright side, autumn means a whole new season of brand new television programming. Between the big three networks (ABC, NBC, CBS), all the cable channels, and streaming services like Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix, the 2015 fall television premiere season is as diverse and abundant as ever. How many of these new shows will stick around is yet to be determined, but the buzz is building. These are the most anticipated fall 2015 TV shows.

This fall 2015 TV lineup looks to have it all. If superheroes are your thing, CBS has put a slight twist on the genre with Supergirl. Also, the Heroes franchise is getting a reboot with Heroes Reborn. The series will feature both new and returning characters to duke it out in the eternal battle of good versus evil.

If you're looking for the next great comedy, perhaps Angel from Hell starring Jane Lynch, claiming to be a guardian angel, is the perfect new sitcom. Or maybe the family-centered sitcom Life in Pieces, starring Colin Hanks and Dianne Wiest and from the producers of Modern Family, is more up your alley?

Looking to rekindle your love affair with sitcom stars of television past? There's a couple new shows that may peak your interest. Mark-Paul Gosselaar (of Saved by the Bell fame) is set to star in a new NBC sitcom called People Are Talking. Also, John Stamos goes from everyone's favorite uncle (Full House), to reluctant grandfather in the Fox sitcom Grandfathered.

Finally, two late night veterans retired last spring. Will Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert be able to fill the large shoes of Letterman and Stewart? 

Be sure to upvote the fall 2015 television show that you're most anxiously awaiting and check back often to see which new television shows for fall 2015 people are loving.

<![CDATA[Manic Pixie Dream Girls You'd Probably Date]]> http://ranker.com/list/manic-pixie-dream-girls/jacob-shelton Whether you know it or not, some of your biggest movie crushes are manic pixie dream girls. Take a look through your DVDs or your Netflix queue and you’ll find a bevy of female characters who have eccentric personality quirks and are unabashedly girlish, but ultimately they’re static characters meant to give the male protagonist something to desire. Characters like Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim, Sugar Kane from Some Like It Hot, and even Belle from Beauty and the Beast are classic manic pixie dreamgirls. If you’re looking at these characters from the outside, they’re kind of annoying. Whether they’re walking around strumming a ukulele or making mix tape after mix tape, they don’t do much else. But admit it: there’s at least one MPDG that you would try to go steady with. Check out this list of manic pixie dream girls and use your votes to tell the world which ones you’d date.

We’ve all dated someone with qualities we’ve had to forgive. Terrible haircuts, a Hummel collection, or maybe they were in a terrible band. Take that sense of forgiveness and apply it to this list of MPDGs. Whose quirks could you cast aside for the possibility of putting a ring on it, or at least a long term commitment on it? Choose wisely, and don’t be fooled by the ever changing color of their hair.

Vote on the manic pixie dream girl that you’d probably date even though they’re super annoying. Then add any of your favorite MPDGs that you’d date that aren't already listed.

<![CDATA[The Best SNL Skits Where the Cast Can't Stop Laughing]]> http://ranker.com/list/snl-skits-where-the-cast-cant-stop-laughing/lisa-waugh The best SNL skits where they laugh so much that other cast members break are the best. Saturday Night Live cast members who break character have a domino effect and the SNL sketches where they laugh is one of the reasons people still watch. A live show with this many smart asses and chances for things to go sideways is going to have some beautiful train wrecks.

Out of all of the Saturday Night Live cast, who were the breakers and who were the breakees? Imagine being on that live stage opposite Chris Farley. It was Farley’s job to break down other cast members and he took sheer delight in it. Will Ferrell also took out his fellow cast members, but usually quite by accident. He gets right up in Chris Parnell’s face in the cowbell sketch but Parnell is made of iron. 

Rachel Dratch regularly broke people up and usually leads the SNL sketches where they laugh on the show. Her sketches with Will Ferrell as the over-sharing meat-loving professors, The Love-ahs, never failed to bust up anyone in the scene with them. They also managed to freak themselves out and barely make it through the bit. Jimmy Fallon got crushed by this formidable duo during an early Love-ahs sketch. Fallon, Adam Sandler, and Eddie Murphy didn’t need much help from their Saturday Night Live cast members - they cracked themselves up.

The only person who could hold their own against an SNL comedy attack was Christopher Walken. He shined liked a beacon in a Love-ahs sketch as Walter. He never cracked once in the cowbell sketch. He is a mighty fortress against SNL cast members who break character.

Which SNL skits where they laugh tickled your funny bone too? Upvote your favorites and have the last laugh.

Millions of insects flying or crawling at you, swarming, stinging, biting, and most of all, dying and leaving putrid corpses. Even talking about them gives people the willies, and they're incredibly common, everywhere in the world, throughout history.

History is riddled with tales of insect swarms - hordes of locusts, flies, mosquitoes, and bees making life hellish for anyone in their path. But with climate change leading to warmer winters, the natural cold snaps that kill off huge numbers of bugs are getting more and more mild. This means more bugs are surviving to be born, and these bugs swarm when unleashed on the world. Combine this with invasive species being introduced into places where they have no natural predator, and you have the perfect conditions for bad news.

Read on to learn more about the bug swarms that were terrible and awful be caught in. These insect infestations are sure to make your skin crawl!

This list of 2015 topical issues tackles the things that made all of us incredibly nervous in the year of 2015. It's never easy to track the concerns of millions, but in 2015 public worry over measles, Donald Trump, and the drought in California was at an all-time high. Should we still be worried about these things? Probably. But for now, let’s just consider them solely 2015 issues.


Donald Trump’s presidential campaign wasn’t the only worrisome political issue that was trending in 2015. All of the politicians who sought to defund Planned Parenthood this year scared a lot of women. The number of West-Kardashians, meanwhile, continued to climb at an alarming rate.  From Sharknado 3 to the return of the Ice Bucket Challenge, terrifying events blew up on social media and scared the hell out of all of us.

The news media hyped up the fear when it came to Iran’s nuclear deal, the total collapse of the Greek economy and, of course, the retirement of Jon Stewart and Dave Letterman signalling the end of late night as we know it. With all of these worries, how will we go on? By voting up the most worrisome issues in 2015 and adding any pressing concerns that aren't on the list yet.

It probably seems like you’re the only normal person living in the whole place. Well get used to that feeling, because the people in your dorm are your new friends and de facto family members for the rest of the semester, if not the rest of the year. Sometimes it seems like everyone who lives in a college dorm spent their senior year of high school studying every teen movie they could get their hands on in order to establish an identity for themselves. The young men and women are not only unique snowflakes, they’re also the worst people in your dorm.

The types of people in dorms are hands down some of the worst people that you’ll ever meet. But pretty much everyone at that age is the worst, so at least most of them will grow out of it by senior year. Hopefully. Everyone who goes to college assumes that they’ll run into a couple of party animals and definitely a couple of bros, but no one is ready to meet the girl who won’t stop crying. If you’re getting ready to go away to college for your freshman year, study this collection of the worst people in your dorm room. It just might save your life.

Vote on the worst type of person to be stuck with in your dorm, and if we missed someone that really gets on your nerves, add them to the list.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Guest Star Moms in TV History]]> http://ranker.com/list/greatest-guest-star-moms-in-tv-history/ranker-tv List of the greatest guest star moms in TV history, recurring or one-time appearances. Whether from past or current shows, these TV mom guest stars show up and do what mothers do best, from the good to the bad -- comfort, advise, gossip, intimidate, or dish out guilt. This list of guest star television moms includes those from TV shows of all genres.

 Some guest star TV moms are loving and kind. Remember Pam’s mom from “The Office”? Although the character of Helene Beesly was played by two different actresses (Shannon Cochran and Linda Purl), Helene’s character was always portrayed as the kind of mother anyone would want -- attentive, friendly, and caring. Other guest star TV moms aim for caring and loving but end up annoying and (thankfully for viewers) funny. Remember how much Mrs. Seinfeld exasperated Jerry?

 A handful of TV guest star mothers seem determined to make life more difficult for their sons or daughters. Ida, Lois’s mom from “Malcolm in the Middle,” was fractious, cranky, and angry -- often leading to the family attempting to hide when she showed up. And, of course, there are the mothers who seem determined to do as little mothering as possible, including Mac’s mom from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

 This list showcases the best TV guest star moms in television history. They’re played by major stars (like Jamie Lee Curtis portraying Jess Day’s mother on “New Girl”) and lesser known actresses, but viewers tune in to love ‘em and hate ‘em. Vote your favorites up.

<![CDATA[Celebrities Who Just Seem Crazy to You]]> http://ranker.com/list/celebrities-who-seem-crazy/carly-kiel Sometimes, you are watching a celebrity interview on a late night talk show or a red carpet or something, and you are just like, "Wow, that person seems crazy." Maybe the celebrity has a bizarre non-human glint in his eye, or maybe she makes a comment that sounds exactly like something a lunatic would say. This is a list of celebrities who, for whatever, reason, seem like they are just too crazy to even engage in a normal conversation. It includes famous actors, musicians, and other people. It's not that they are dumb or dangerous necessarily - there are no convicted murderers or rapists here - just that they seem like true whackjobs.

Hey, maybe some of the stars on this list are people you really like. Maybe you are a fan of Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, or Quentin Tarantino. That's OK - a lot of people are! But maybe you have also noticed that Charlie Sheen, Courtney Love, and Shia LaBeouf are regular fixtures in the gossip rags because they frequently do and say weird things. Well, what kinds of things? Getting in altercations with serving staff, having insane amounts of plastic surgery, leaving threatening voicemails for family members, shaving one's head while crying, going public with outrageous political stances, marrying people half their ages, becoming BFFs with Communist dictators, being a Scientologist... 

Are these all things any person on earth might do? And it doesn't mean the person is "crazy"? Is it OK to be "crazy"? Sure, who cares? As long as these celebs aren't hurting anyone, they are free to feel and say whatever they think. Just maybe they shouldn't say those things to police officers, or into video cameras. Maybe some of these famous people have mental illnesses, or the media just hates them and takes great pains to portray them as insane. Maybe we are all crazy! Whatever. Vote up the celebrities that seem the most mentally unstable, like true nuts completely out of touch with reality.

However, things get shared and turn viral in a way that seems inexplicable, and people become popular for no discernible reason, and you'd probably rather some of these weird fads and social media trends didn't clutter up your news feed. Compiled here is a list of annoying Facebook fads, as well as fads on Twitter and other social media platforms, to take a nostalgic tour of some of the weird things that captured the Internet world's attention a little too much. 

Whether the simple video of a World of Warcraft raid going wrong, or a photo of a young man at Target that the entire world seemed to want to talk about, this list of social media fads that really shouldn't have gone as viral as they did will take you on a trip down memory lane. But this isn't just the fads that made you wonder what the big deal was, it's also the fads that were actually funny and interesting, but were so hopelessly beaten into the ground that they were still going on long after they were past their prime.

So take a look at this list of annoying social media fads and vote up the ones you think have been the worst offenders over time.

On this list, we’ve got culture jammers that wear boots on their heads, guys who can’t stop typing apostrophes, and your usual handful of mixed nuts. The men and women listed here may not be the best or the brightest but they’re certainly alternative candidates and they’re all running for President of the United States of America.

If the jokers on this list can do anything, it’s inspire you to greatness. How can you not feel motivated when you see people like Pogo Mochello Allen-Reese and Sammy Murel Brown throwing their hat into the Presidential ring? We’re not saying that you should run for president (you probably shouldn’t) but you should at least be an informed voter, starting by getting to know the fringe third party candidates running in the 2016 election

We’re not telling you who to vote for; if you want to write in Robert Milnes on Election Day, do it. You can’t make things any worse! Which one of these crazy and funny candidates do you think would paint the White House the brightest shade of crazy??

At the very least, vote for the best alternative 2016 candidates running for president here, or tell us in the comments which candidate best appeals to your insane streak.

<![CDATA[15 Famous People Who Have Been Reported Missing]]> http://ranker.com/list/13-famous-missing-people/celeb-stalker Who are some of the most famous missing people in history? This list includes very well-known actors and actresses, journalists, musicians, socialites, and even heads of state who have all, at some point, been reported missing. The circumstances of their disappearances are all fascinating, and some, sadly, have never been found.

One of the more high-profile missing persons cases of 2012 isn't actually a missing persons case at all. Katherine Jackson was reported as missing in late-July of 2012, by her nephew, Trent Jackson. The whole situation is totally bizarre. Ms. Jackson was, when she was supposedly missing, actually in Arizona with other Jackson family members, playing Uno.

Some of the most well-known missing people on this list vanished forever, with no trace left behind. Their bodies were never found, and friends and family were left to wonder forever what happened. Conspiracy theories about their fates, not surprisingly, run rampant. A few musicians on this list, including Kurt Cobain, are members of the so-called "27 Club," because they vanished and/or died when they were just 27 years old.

Other famous missing persons listed here were discovered weeks, months, or even years later. A status update is included for each person on this list.

<![CDATA[Celebrity Posses You Wish You Could Hang Out With]]> http://ranker.com/list/celebrity-friend-groups/jacob-shelton For a major celebrity, one of the most important parts of creating your own personal brand is to put together the biggest group of celebrity friends that you can. Regular people are all well and good until you hit the big time, but then you need a celebrity posse to back you up. Who else can understand what it's like to be a famous person better than other famous people?

Being a part of a celebrity posse goes far beyond having someone to vacation with, once you're in a celebrity crew it's almost expected that you'll start working with your celebrity friend group. In that instance, it makes sense to build the biggest friend circle that you can. That way, the work never stops (and you're working with your friends, which is always nice). There are so many celebrity friend groups that a lot of them start to overlap (and how could they not, what with Taylor Swift taking up all the prime Hollywood friend real estate?). To help you keep all of the intertwining celebrity groups straight, here is a handy list of the best celebrity posses.

Famous cliques and posses aren’t a new phenomenon. Since the days of the Rat Pack famous friends have been getting together to hang out and run amok across Los Angeles, New York, and where ever else famous people hang out. The celebrity cliques on this list range from independent filmmakers, to weirdo hip-hop artists, and comedians who’ve managed to take over the film industry. While you check out these celebrity posses, start working on a pros and cons list of the high powered men and women that you want in your celebrity squad.

Of course, there are your basic cat subs, like r/Cats, r/CatPictures, and r/CatVideos. But if you really start digging, you can find specific categories of cat photos and other fun stuff.

While that’s great for statisticians, it doesn’t mean that the music is any good. Hopefully there aren't any of your favorite artists on this list, because these songs, some of the worst music of 2015, are baaaad. Like, Toby Keith complaining about the way things used to be when there weren’t any cell phones, and Madonna pretending that she’s in her mid twenties bad. Now that you know what you’re in for, put your headphones on and listen to the worst songs of 2015 so far.

A note about the selection process: in an effort to be fair, music from any genre qualifies for this worst songs list, though you're sure to find repeat and past offenders like Carly Rae Jepsen and Meghan Trainor. While these tracks are definitely the worst, at least they aren’t the most boring songs of 2015. And that’s saying something, right? In the immortal words of Propagandhi, “less talk, more rock.“ Here’s the list of the worst song list for 2015... so far.

Who cares if it makes you seem like a total lush, wouldn't you like to drink without going bankrupt?

Do they have Hot Pockets? And if they do, are they your favorite flavor? Fried pizza pockets is just one of the reasons that you should stay home and drink instead of going out. Pour yourself your double of your favorite alcoholic drink and enjoy this list of the best reasons to drink at home.

Even if your friends insist that drinking at home is kind of sad, there are plenty of awesome reasons to hang out in your apartment and sip on syrup (although, you actually shouldn't drink syrup – that will kill you). Whether you’re drinking at home because you’re trying to save some money or because you’re avoiding the fact that you’re dealing with some deep-seated emotional issues, these best reasons for you to drink at home will make you feel even better for what you were probably already going to do.

Vote up the best reasons to drink at home, and if you have a reason to drink (alcohol, not juice, wink!) at home that isn't listed, be sure to add it for other home drinkers to vote on.

That has to be the worst. Don’t these people have anything better to do? We definitely don’t, so we’re ranking the celebrities who are most notorious for not minding their own business.

The worst thing about celebrities who don’t know how to mind their own business is when they decide to start telling us how to live our lives. It’s one thing when they want to comment on the lives of their A-list frenemies, but when they start screaming down from on high about the rest of us and offering advice?

That makes it personal. Don’t worry about putting on your sunglasses, because there's plenty of shade getting thrown in this list of famous busybodies who don’t know how to mind their own business, whether they talk smack about other famous people or tell the rest of us how to do us.

The only consolation was that the 90s was a decade of loud colors, appealing to kids by making everything into the coolest school supplies.

If you didn't have to most awesome 90s school supplies, you weren't ostracized, but you definitely weren't cool. You'd sit there with your sharpened #2 pencils, off-brand crayons and boring pencil bag, wishing your parents had sprung for the cooler stuff. This is a list of all the cool stuff we either wish we had or remember having in school during the 90s. We would all lose everything by about the third week, but those first three weeks of awesome stationary and every color of gel pen were really, really awesome.

The best 90s school supplies were the ones that they had commercials for on TV, trying to convince young students that normal pens were for old people. These are the greatest, most nostalgia-inducing 90s pencils, 90s stationary, and nostalgic 90s school supplies (Lisa Frank included), ranked in order of awesomeness by voters who knew what it mean to cool for school in the 1990s.

<![CDATA[Rank the U.S. Presidents' OTHER Houses]]> http://ranker.com/list/presidents-second-homes/mike-rothschild Presidential second homes reflect the personal interests of the president who stays in them, as well as his family life, and the increasing access technology would allow. The first presidential estates were family plantations, passed down to men like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson after decades of family ownership. These were massive plots of land, with huge houses, and, unfortunately, extensive numbers of slaves.

As technology allowed presidents to travel longer distances faster, Presidential second homes began to serve as either summer or winter White Houses, where the administration would set up shop for several weeks at a time either to avoid the brutal heat of Washington, D.C. summers, or the brutal cold of the city's winters. They also served as refuges during times of war, meeting sites for dignitaries, and sometimes, just as a place to get away and do something fun.

As with presidential birthplaces, most of these homes have been added to the National Register of Historic Places. A few are still functioning as private homes, available for purchase at the right price. And a few are gone, torn down to make room for newer, bigger, better houses - but they won't be ones owned by a president.

Vote up the presidential second home you'd most like to get your name on the mortgage of (price not being an object, of course).

This list of the most overrated actors of all time, has been ranked by critics and fans from all over the world. Actors are seen as the face of the movies, television, and other media products in which they star. Extra attention is paid to them, as if they are infallible people. Hollywood actors and actresses have become like gods to many people around the globe, and they are worshiped with praise, money, awards, and gifts. However, many of the actors receiving the most accolades are extremely overrated in their raw talent, charisma, and chemistry with other actors. While many actors, like Tom Cruise and Will Smith, bring in the big box office bucks, they have little to no acting range and often phone in their performances.

Many of the actors who get the most praise gave one or two great performances during their film careers, but then rested on their laurels for the rest of their careers. Others are pretty good actors, but nowhere near as talented as the overwhelming praise they get states. Even more actors have no talent at all, but are famous because of their looks and personality. Even some of the actors and actresses from classic movies aren’t as gifted as many claim.

Who are the most overrated actors? What about the many overrated actresses (Kristen Stewart, we're looking at you)? This list features current and Old Hollywood actors who are higher rated then they deserve for their acting skills.

<![CDATA[The Most Demeaning Expectations of Women]]> http://ranker.com/list/expectations-of-women/lauren-slocum In the 1900s, women's suffrage made a lot of progress in America. But we still hear phrases like "bread winner" and see advertisements of women Febrezing their living rooms wearing khaki pants and Keds while probably waiting for the iron to get hot and the cookies to finish baking in the oven. So, if you've ever been walking down the street and had a stranger say, "Girl, why you so serious? Smile!" you're aware of the fact that society has some super strange and entirely impractical expectations of the female gender.

Some gender roles and gender expectations are unavoidable - there are biological differences and restrictions that create a definitive line between the male and female species. But over time, women's roles as nurturers, mothers, and wives has evolved from being the equivalent of a strong protector of her family to someone that's expected to be demure, obedient (to relationships, societal expectations, careers), and altogether dependent on the male species. And you don't need to go burning your bra to agree that most of the female expectations on this list are total bullsh*t.

Some of the most demeaning expectations of women listed here pertain to physical appearance: women should wear makeup, they should always be freshly shaven, the ones who dress provocatively will get more attention, etc. etc. (because for some reason the world thinks it's their job to tell females what they should look like). And then there are some equally as outrageous role expectations like jealousy, incapability to fix things, assumption of our hobbies and interests. 

If you're ready to stick your middle finger up to these lazy and outdated expectations that are proven wrong time and time again, you'll want to read through these ridiculous expectations of women. Feeling heated after reading through the list? Good! Debunk these expectations by joining the conversation about it in the comments section below. Vote up the expectations that fire you up the most!

Almost like our favorite celebrities (if you consider the tabloids fairy tales). Recently, the brightest stars in Hollywood have been taking a page from their horned counterparts and adopting a pretty pastel hair trend in almost every color of the rainbow! The multicolored hairstyle is taking over! If you need inspiration for your next dye job, this is where you'll find it.

Gwen Stefani, Drew Barrymore, and Christina Aguilera have been dying their hair crazy colors since all the way back in the '90s, when people actually watched the VMAs and MTV actually played music videos. With the grunge and punk movements came hair dye products like Manic Panic and Punky Color, and with them every color of hair-dye you could imagine: Cotton Candy Pink, Ultra Violet, Tangerine, and Daffodil. 

In the past few years, the invention of hair chalk has made it even easier for our fave celebs to have the colorful cotton-candy hair-color we lust over. The best thing is, hair chalk has made it so we can "dye" our hair without permanently upsetting our bosses and getting fired. It just washes out! You can have blue hair on Friday night, pink hair on Saturday night, and be back to your normal work-safe hair color by Monday morning. 

Our list is filled with the most colorful celebrity hair a girl (or boy) could dream of. Pinks! Blues! Purples! Take a look and vote up the celebrity you think rocks the colorful, unicorn hair the best!

<![CDATA[Movie Roles Almost Played by Someone Else]]> http://ranker.com/list/movie-roles-almost-played-by-someone-else/annmarie Iron Man has just defeated the evil villain and saved the world. He flies home, takes off his Iron Man suit, and removes his mask. Except it’s not Robert Downey Jr. underneath the mask - it’s Tom Cruise. Weird, right? Often times, several actors are considered for a particular role, before casting directors and producers (hopefully) make the right decision. These are the most iconic movie roles almost played by someone else.

For movie fans around the world, it’s nearly impossible to imagine anyone other than Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator. But did you know that James Cameron initially offered the part to both Sylvester Stallone and Mel Gibson? What’s even harder to believe is that Cameron almost gave the part to O.J. Simpson, but thought better of it, only because he felt that the former NFL star was “too nice” to play the role of a murdering cyborg.

Hollywood is filled with these impossible tales of what if. Like, what if scheduling difficulties hadn't gotten in the way of Johnny Depp taking on the iconic 1980s role of Ferris Bueller? Would Depp have become more of a comedic actor? What if Al Pacino had been able to understand the script for Star Wars and accepted the role of Han Solo? What if Chevy Chase hadn't passed on Forrest Gump?

Some of the movie casting stories you are about to read will shock you. But in the end, it doesn’t matter why these actors ultimately didn’t play the parts on this list. It’s just odd to consider these famous film roles played by anyone else.

<![CDATA[The Best Bromance Movies]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-bromance-movies/ranker-film List of the best bromance movies, ranked by fans. These films - usually funny, often heartwarming - chronicle the close relationships between lead male characters. Like many of their female counterparts in the best chick flicks, these bros and dudes have strong bonds that are tested, broken, and reformed even stronger. This list includes some of the greatest guy movies of all time and even a few tearjerking movies that make men cry (but not many).

Over the past decade, bromance films have taken off, becoming more popular and mainstream than ever before. A lot of the actors in these films overlap, at least amongst the younger crew. Some of the most popular comedic actors like Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, Vince Vaughn, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and Jonah Hill have all starred in these movies. These movies aren't limited to today's stars. A lot of the movies on this list features Saturday Night Live alumni like Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Dana Carvey and David Spade took part in bromance films, even starring with one another in them. Bromance is the only thing that the News 4 News Team and the fellas in Wolfpack that makes them alike. Their antics may be very different, but the characters do nearly everything together as a team.

Bromance movies aren't restricted to comedies. There are plenty of action movies that involve guys milling about. Point Break, Rush Hour and 48 Hours are examples. Additionally, there are plenty of dramas that are centered around a bromance, like Andy and Red's in Shawshank Redemption as the prime example.

Despite the different bromance movie genres, the common thread between these films is that its plot line and heart is centered around the relationship of the main male characters. s, without a romantic interest hovering over or around the central plot points, then it's a bromance.
 
All of these top bromance movies can be ranked and re-ranked to your liking. If you don't see a movie that fits the list, you can add it as well. As long as the movie's plot is centered around the exploits of at least two male character, it qualifies as a bromance.

<![CDATA[The Worst Man-Made Disasters in China]]> http://ranker.com/list/disasters-in-china/devon-ashby Though China has a historical legacy of natural disasters, including earthquakes, torrential rain, and flooding, industrial China has also been increasingly affected by industrial accidents like the industrial explosions that occurred in Tianjin in August 2015. Such man-made disasters in China are all too common.

Often, these incidents are aggressively classified as "natural disasters" by government officials who want to minimize international focus on China's need for environmental and institutional reform. In other cases, industrial tragedies are blamed on worker negligence, when they are, in fact, the result of systematically lax safety regulations and substandard equipment.

What are some of the worst disasters in the history of China? Some of the most deadly industrial accidents in history have occurred in China during the last century. What's really troubling about these Chinese disasters is just often they repeat themselves. Flooding, mudslides, and deadly underground mining explosions, for example, have become such common occurrences in China that they sometimes fail to receive international attention.

Massive pollution, industrial disasters, and environmental catastrophes are all devastating problems. Too often, these incidents are not "accidents" or "natural disasters" at all - they're tragically avoidable man-made disasters. These industrial and environmental disasters in China are presented here in reverse chronological order.

From oil refinery disasters to nuclear power plant crises, the worst explosions have collectively killed hundreds of thousands of people. Humankind has a bad habit of blowing things up, whether through testing, attacks, or accidents, and the biggest explosions ever and the most famous explosions in history are all accounted for here and presented in reverse-chronological order.

The worst explosions ever range from the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II to the accidental man-made explosion and nuclear meltdown in Chernobyl. The worst man-made explosions are often disturbingly recent, such as the August 2015 chemical plant explosion in China. The biggest explosions ever also include non-nuclear testing done by the United States, while the biggest historical explosions consist of Soviet tests during the Space Race and many other Cold War shows of explosive might.

Sometimes they're due to industrial negligence and sometimes they're military exercises, but every entry on this list of the most famous explosions in history is guaranteed to scare you senseless.
