<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent offbeat Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/tags/offbeat http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/tags/offbeat <![CDATA[The Druggiest Rock Stars of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-druggiest-rock-stars-of-all-time/robert-wabash
Rock stars and drugs go together like football and beer: you could have one without the other and it would still be fun, but you would sense that something was missing. And in the world of rock and roll, musicians being whacked out on drugs and alcohol can be pretty entertaining (right up until they OD, of course. RIP).

This list of rock stars who used drugs was inspired by an article in the OC Weekly that chronicled the six druggiest rock stars of all time, but since we go big at Ranker, we added a few more to the mix. Because honestly, one thing the music world isn't lacking are train wrecks who drink and do drugs.

If you can think of other rock stars that deserve to be on the list that didn't make it in the first wave of qualifications (which basically consist of the ability to frighten one of the nurses at Promises upon checking into rehab), add them. But heed the criteria that your rock star must have a splendid past with drugs.

If you're looking for inspiration in the drugs and rock & roll arena (we'll assume the rest of the Internet can cover the "sex" part), the list of rock stars who have aged the worst is an excellent way to make you feel better about those gray hairs you've been denying. And if you're wondering what's to come of these miscreants of the mic after the drugs have run their course, there's the list of celebrity ODs we should have seen coming.

<![CDATA[17 Foods That Can Kill You]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/foods-that-could-kill-you/michael-darling
Some of the most ordinary foods you eat every day can kill you. Sure, eating too much sugar or fat isn't good for you and can contribute to illnesses over a long period of time, but what about natural foods that are supposed to be healthy for us, like apples?

The foods on this list will give you more than just an upset stomach if you're not careful about how you eat them. From processed and packaged foods to all natural and organic, this is a list of foods that could poison you. But don't worry – we'll also tell you how to avoid inadvertently making any of these foods your last meal.

 

http://www.ranker.com/list/foods-that-could-kill-you/michael-darling,

Elderberry
Elderberry jam is delicious, but you should never eat the berry raw. Elderberries contain glycosides, which when metabolized, they turn into a form of cyanide. As with bitter almonds, cyanide in elderberries can be neutralized by cooking the berries. (source)

Potato
Potatoes are generally safe, but make sure they haven't started to turn green. Unlike with a traffic light, you should stop when you see green potatoes. In addition to being bitter, green potatoes produce the chemical solanine, which can cause vomiting and even cardiac arrest. (source)

Rhubarb
Rhubarb makes for a tasty pie, but you should avoid the leaves. Rhubarb leaves contain the chemical oxalic acid, which is used to make many household cleaning products. It would take ten pounds of leaves to kill you, but even small amounts of rhubarb leaves can cause vomiting and nausea. (source)

Rice
Every serving of rice (about 1/4 cup) contains a few micrograms of arsenic. Honestly, death by rice is, at best, a theoretical concept, as it would take about 1,800 cups to kill you. You'd probably develop a stomach ache long before you'd get that far. (source)

Apples with skin
Some people like to eat whole apples, right down to the core. However, they should know that a single apple seed contains around 700 miligrams of cyanide. Thankfully, you'd have to eat about 200 seeds to kill yourself, and the average apple has less than 10. (source)

Sour Cherry
The cherry itself is safe and delicious, but don't eat the pits. Cherry seeds are located inside the pit, and the seeds contain enough cyanide to kill a 150-pound person. (source)
Mushrooms
Most mushrooms are okay, but watch out for fungi like the Fool's Mushroom and the fittingly named Death Cap. In small doses, these mushrooms can cause abdominal pain. In larger doses, they can cause serious liver, kidney, and cardiac damage. (source)
 

Tomatoes
Tomato leaves and stems have been known to contain the poison glycoalkaloid. Although glycoalkaloid isn't likely to kill you, it has been known to cause severe stomach pain and cramps. (source)

Castor Beans
Thankfully, people don't eat castor beans, but you've probably taken castor oil as a home remedy at some point in your life. Although the oil might taste like poison, it's perfectly safe. However, raw castor beans can be used to make ricin, and a single bean has been known to kill an average-sized person. (source)

Fugu
Fugu (puffer fish) is a delicacy of Japanese cuisine, but ordering fugu carries a great risk. The puffer fish's organs and skin contain tetrodotoxin, a poison that can paralyze and asphyxiate humans. In order to keep people safe, fugu can only be prepared by licensed chefs who have received special training. (source)

<![CDATA[The Greatest Fictional Serial Killers]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-fictional-serial-killers/mark
Who are the best fictional serial killers of all time? These are serial killers featured in television shows and on film. To be clear, there is a difference between a serial killer and a mass murderer. A serial killer is one who kills individually, stalking a victim and murdering them in cold blood. Some of the most memorable movie and TV characters ever have been serial killers, so be sure to vote for the ones you liked the most -- and vote down any you didn't like. Also, feel free to re-rank this list any way you want, and add any notable fictional serial killers who are missing.

The creepiest film and TV serial killers often steal the show with their terrifyingly cool, chilling scenes. They manage to elude the good guys who are dutifully tracking them down, often for most of a movie or television show. Eventually, almost all of the fictional serial killers listed here are caught, but not before they leave behind horrifying reminders of their sick and twisted abilities. They are, quite often, some of the best movie villains of all time or the creepiest characters on television.

When you think of the "best" fictional serial murderers, who comes to mind instantly? Hannibal Lecter? That's certainly one of the most famous and memorable serial killers ever on film, thanks to Anthony Hopkins (who won an Academy Award for the role in 'Silence of the Lambs'). Or how about mommy-obsessed Norman Bates (Anthony Hopkins), the serial killer who scared the wits out of everyone in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho'? There is no doubt that both of these characters are iconic, and among the most utterly terrifying figures in film. Both, interestingly enough, were brought to the small screen in 2013: Lecter in the NBC horror drama 'Hannibal' and Bates in A&E's drama 'Bates Motel.'

Are serial killers the new vampires now? Could be. One thing is certain: The fictional serial killers listed here are among the characters you absolutely, positively do not ever want knocking at your door.
