This list includes mass-murdering dictators, psychopathic serial killers, sociopathic religious leaders, insane politicians, deceptive political commentators, and annoying celebrities and Hollywood douchebags who make our eyes and ears bleed. Who are the worst people of all time? This human scum has incited genocide, executed ethnic cleansing, enslaved entire races of people, practiced cannibalism, orchestrated arbitrary homicide, brainwashed people who trusted them, yelled at film crew members, and been paid by TV studios to be awful.

Anyone can vote on this list of vile villains and evil lunatics, making it an accurate, real-time ranking of the world's worst people ever. Call out history's biggest scumbags, and see how your picks stack up against everyone else's. Because those who do not rank the worst people in history are doomed to repeat it.

<![CDATA[Who Should Replace Jon Stewart as Host of The Daily Show?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/daily-show-jon-stewart-replacements/brian-gilmore
Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show after 16 years of hosting a television program that changed the landscape of how we view news. Something that started out as a fake news/joke program, under Stewart's reign, turned into the most reliable place to find news during any political event. He saw us through four presidential elections and countless changes in liberal ideology, as well as the struggles in between. Jon Stewart truly gave his all in his reporting, his comedy and never pulled punches when something needed to be dissected or taken down a peg. 

So now that he's moving on with his career, who do we turn to? Well, much like Stewart was when he first started, I think we should look to the alternative comedy community for who the next Jon Stewart is going to be. Vote up who you think would be the best, or add your own entries at the bottom of the list. I've included both Daily Show correspondents that I think could handle the load and people in the comedy community that would knock it out of the park, as well as some underrated newcomers that I think could easily help out the show. 

Not all current correspondents should be thought of first because then we'd lose them as correspondents. I think the new host of The Daily Show should have the cushion of a well-established, well-loved correspondent base that Jon Stewart had when he took over the show from Craig Kilborn. 

What do you think of this list? Who can do the job of replacing Jon Stewart the best? Nobody will ever be him, but a new, fresh direction might be exactly what The Daily Show needs.

<![CDATA[The Best Living American Actresses]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-living-american-actresses/ranker-film
It takes a lot to make a movie great. There has to be excellent writing, production, direction, editing, and of course, acting. While the crew draws out the parameters for a movie, the actors are who color in the film to bring it to life, and without great acting, a great film can crumble. 

These actresses are the ones who deliver time and again, regardless of how good the script or the production of the film is. These are the greatest American actors who are alive today. Who are the best actresses? That's up to you to decide. This list is votable and rerankable, and if you don't see someone on here that deserves a spot, feel free to add them, but make sure they're still alive.

<![CDATA[The Funniest Female Comedians of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/funniest-female-comedians/kel-varnsen
The funniest female comedians star on our favorite sitcoms, perform standup at the top comedy clubs and best of all, make us laugh until we cry. These talented women comedians (or 'commediennes' if you're fancy) are just as funny as any male comedians, if not funnier. Plus, they get to tell female-friendly jokes that most men wouldn't touch with a 10 foot poll. Girl comedians can just do some jokes better than the guys can.

Alone, these female comedians are utterly hilarious on their own but when they team up, watch out. That was exactly the case in 2011 when funny ladies like Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy teamed up with some of the funniest minds in film today to make the smash comedy hit "Bridesmaids." Previously, the blonde comedian was known mainly for her many quirky characters on "Saturday Night Live," but she's more than just a funny lady, she's a smart (and beautiful!) one too, Kristen Wiig has the answer to Global Warming..

For others, the leap from the gut-busting standup acts to primetime television came after the female comedians got noticed by the networks. Chelsea Handler, Whitney Cummings and even Ellen DeGeneres all paid their dues on the standup circuit before getting their own television series.

Whether these talented female comedians make us laugh with their television shows, appear in hilarious comedy movies, are familiar faces on Comedy Central or simply provide the best hilariously inappropriate jokes on celebrity roasts, each rival any of the top male comedians in the business today. Some of them are considered to be the funniest people of all time. Have a funny lady that makes you laugh until you wet your pants? White or black, young or old, tell us your favorites by adding her or voting her up below!

<![CDATA[Greatest Mathematicians in the World]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-mathematicians-in-the-world/amatoassagaf
Mathematics did so much to our life. How about the mathematicians?
http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-mathematicians-in-the-world/amatoassagaf,

Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E=mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.
Archimedes
Archimedes of Syracuse (c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) was an Ancient Greek mathematician,physicistengineerinventor, and astronomer. Although few details of his life are known, he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity.
Aryabhata
Aryabhata or Aryabhata I (476–550 CE) was the first in the line of great mathematician-astronomers from the classical age of Indian mathematics and Indian astronomy. His works include the Āryabhaṭīya (499 CE, when he was 23 years old) and the Arya-siddhanta.
Bernard Bolzano
Bernhard Placidus Johann Nepomuk Bolzano (Bernard Bolzano in English; 5 October 1781 – 18 December 1848) was a Bohemian mathematicianlogicianphilosophertheologian and Catholic priest of Italian extraction, also known for his anti militarist views.
Euclid
Euclid (fl. 300 BC), sometimes called Euclid of Alexandria to distinguish him from Euclid of Megara, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (323–283 BC). His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching mathematics (especially geometry) from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. In the Elements, Euclid deduced the principles of what is now called Euclidean geometry from a small set of axioms. Euclid also wrote works on perspectiveconic sectionsspherical geometrynumber theory and rigor.
George Boole
George Boole (2 November 1815 – 8 December 1864) was an English mathematicianphilosopher and logician. He worked in the fields of differential equations and algebraic logic, and is now best known as the author of The Laws of Thought.
Georg Cantor
Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor (March 3 [O.S.February 19] 1845 – January 6, 1918) was a German mathematician, best known as the inventor of set theory, which has become a fundamental theory in mathematics. Cantor established the importance of one-to-one correspondence between the members of two sets, defined infinite and well-ordered sets, and proved that the real numbers are "more numerous" than the natural numbers. In fact, Cantor's method of proof of this theorem implies the existence of an "infinity of infinities". He defined the cardinal and ordinalnumbers and their arithmetic. Cantor's work is of great philosophical interest, a fact of which he was well aware.
Jacob Bernoulli
Jacob Bernoulli (also known as James or Jacques; 6 January 1655 [O.S. 27 December 1654] – 16 August 1705) was one of the many prominent mathematicians in the Bernoulli family. He was an early proponent of Leibnizian calculus and had sided with Leibniz during the Leibniz–Newton calculus controversy. He is known for his numerous contributions to calculus, and along with his brotherJohann, was one of the founders of the calculus of variations. However, his most important contribution was in the field of probability, where he derived the first version of the law of large numbers in his work Ars Conjectandi.
Michael Atiyah

Sir Michael Francis Atiyah, OM, FRS, FRSE, FMedSci FAA, HonFREng (born 22 April 1929) is a British mathematician specialising in geometry.

Atiyah grew up in Sudan and Egypt and spent most of his academic life in the United Kingdom at Oxford and Cambridge, and in the United States at the Institute for Advanced Study. He has been president of the Royal Society (1990–1995), master of Trinity College, Cambridge (1990–1997), chancellor of the University of Leicester (1995–2005), and president of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (2005–2008). Since 1997, he has been an honorary professor at the University of Edinburgh.[7]


René Descartes

René Descartes (31 March 1596 – 11 February 1650) was a French philosophermathematician and writer who spent most of his life in the Dutch RepublicHe has been dubbed the father of modern philosophy, and much subsequent Western philosophy is a response to his writings, which are studied closely to this day.
