With "apparently kid" being one of funniest viral videos of 2014, we apparently decided to take a look back at the most hilarious news interviews of all time. Some of the most popular viral videos of the last five years have come from funny news interviews, including Antoine Dodson's "bed intruder" interview and the unforgettable "ain't nobody got time for that" woman, known as Sweet Brown. Some of these people are drunk, while others are just plain stupid. Either way, it makes for a heck of a viral video, so sit back and watch what these people said when they were put in front of a camera.

<![CDATA[The 50 Laziest Geniuses on the Planet]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/lazy-people/robert-wabash
We all have our moments of laziness. Whether it is watching something on TV for hours because you can't find the remote, sleeping with the light on because you don't want to get up, or closing the door by throwing something at it, we've all had times where we can't be bothered to do something simple. The people in this list have taken laziness to a level so extreme, it's actually impressive.

These are the unofficial "geniuses" of laziness, who have taken great steps to avoid doing even the most simple task. Is bending over to drink your beverage too hard? Try building a super straw that reaches all the way to the couch. Light switch too far from the bed? Keep a loaded Nerf gun by the bed and you'll be sleeping in no time. You have to hand it to them, these people have figured out some really smart solutions to everyday problems, especially the guy who attached a bottle opener to his dog.

<![CDATA[50 Hilarious Snapchats You Wish You Got]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/funny-snapchats/ariel-kana
Snapchat has gone from the "sexting" app that we once thought it was, to a full blown social media and conversation tool. In some ways, the visual aspect of back-and-forth conversation makes Snapchat more effective than simply texting. It also has opened the door for all kinds of clever visual humor. (Hello, funny Snapchats!) Instead of texting your friends about the crazy guy you saw on the bus, you can now send a picture of the guy straight to your entire friends list.

The added bonus of being able to draw on the photos has turned everybody into an amateur artist. A simple selfie is no longer enough, now you have to add a hat, a beard, or an entire cartoon background to your photos. These 50 people have all used Snapchat in clever, creative, and hilarious ways, whether it was to make a joke out of their surroundings or to draw something into their environment. Check out the following Snapchats to gain inspiration for your next temporary masterpiece.

<![CDATA[49 Best College Dorm Room Pranks Of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-best-college-dorm-room-pranks-of-all-time/robert-wabash
If you didn't involve yourself in any college pranks while you were at whichever middle-college, university, trade school, or community college you attended, then you missed out. College dorm room pranks are some of the greatest institutions we have to honor every year at our actual institutions of higher learning. There aren't as many dorm pranks as there used to be because supervision is A LOT tighter now that everyone knows where everyone is all the time. If there's one thing that the Internet and smartphones have done, it's increasing accountability for dumb people's actions, but hey, college exists. Kids do stupid stuff. 

So in honor of the beginning of the university-going season and to give people some great, funny prank ideas for college, here are some of the best dorm room pranks the Internet has ever seen. 

Upvote the college dorm pranks that would impress you if they happened to you and downvote the trivial ones.

<![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.

Dexter Morgan

Freddy Krueger

Hannibal Lecter

Jason Voorhees


Michael Myers

Norman Bates

Patrick Bateman

John Doe

Buffalo Bill

<![CDATA[The Scariest Animals in the World]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-animals-you-are-the-most-scared-of
We're all more scared of one thing than another. Maybe it's the idea of being mauled by a Grizzly or having spiders crawl in your ear while you're sleeping. Maybe it's just the IDEA that a snake might be nearby. Whatever it is, vote on the animal that scares you the most, and of course, feel free to add any of the scariest animals in the world that might be missing from this list.

Any list of the scariest animals in the world will likely include sharks, spiders, and snakes. But what terrifies one person might not scare another at all. It's interesting to look at why certain animals strike fear, and others don't. Is it because many of the animals listed here are potentially deadly? Some spiders' bites can be horrible, but spiders can also be pretty amazing.

Sure, but that doesn't explain why cockroaches freak people out (if you don't believe me, just check the list, and see the votes for yourself). It's highly unlikely that you'll be done in by a killer cockroach – so what gives? Well, they're creepy, they're crawly and (depending on where you live) they *can* fly. That qualifies as scary.

And yes, some of the scariest animals listed here, we'll never ever encounter in real life. Oh, we might see a great white shark in an aquarium or on TV during Shark Week, but really? The odds of us actually coming face to face with a great white are pretty slim. Still, we've all seen Jaws, so that sucker shoots to the top of the list. And bats: Yes, some believe they are scary, but there are a lot of myths surrounding these and other animals that, if you knew more, might make them a bit less terrifying.

Which animals scare you the most? Are they insects? Reptiles? Mammals (and yes, this includes man)? Time to vote!


Black Widow Spider


Great white shark

Black mamba

Grizzly Bear

<![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 the 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 for 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.

Amy Winehouse

Courtney Love

Jerry Garcia

Jimi Hendrix

Jim Morrison

Keith Richards

Kurt Cobain

Ozzy Osbourne

Sid Vicious

Whitney Houston

<![CDATA[Crimes You'd Commit (If You Could Get Away With It)]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/crimes-youd-commit-if-you-could-get-away-with-it/dani-porter

In the land of the law abiding citizen, bank robberies and museum heists are mere daydreams. You may think about committing some of these popular crimes, like cheating on your taxes or becoming a drug smuggling pirate, but instead you pay for the bus everyday and you stopped stealing gum from the liquor store back in middle school. But what if there were no repercussions? What if you could commit some of these easy crimes and never be tried or punished for them? Which crimes would YOU commit if you could get away with it?

(And no, we don’t mean stalking celebrities or burning down your ex-girlfriend’s house. No murdering rampages or infringements on other innocent human beings’ personal space. That’s just creepy.)

What if you could rig the lottery and never have to work another day in your life? Better yet, what if you created a flawless mint that produced counterfeit money? Or maybe you just want to walk down the street and smoke your joint in public. Everyone has their own fantasy when it comes to breaking the law, so read through this list of crimes many of us would commit if only we wouldn’t end up in the slammer.

(And no, we aren’t referring to breaking
laws in Alabama, where “boogers may not be flicked into the wind”, and “you may not have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at any time.” We’re talking real-deal, blow some s**t up then flee the scene of the crime with a stolen Ferrari type laws.)

<![CDATA[The Grossest Sounding English Words]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/gross-sounding-words/samantha-dillinger
Some words just really gross us out! They make us cringe and turn away. It's that nails-on-a-chalkboard kind of feeling. Maybe because they're the name of something we don't like, as is likely the case with "pus." Gross! Others just don't feel okay to say. Milky? Come on! I'm squirming right now! 

Word aversions are similar to phobias. We hear certain words and just have a visceral response to them, an annoyance or nauseous feeling. Luckily this happens in reverse, too! So words like love and beautiful, make us feel happy and all warm inside. But this list isn't about being fuzzy and cuddly - it's about being GROSSED OUT!    

Look this list over, but be prepared to feel disgusted, queasy, revolted, and repelled. Like a car accident you slowly drive by on the freeway or a slasher film you can't pull your eyes away from - this list will have you squeamish, abhorred and simply grossed out! Vote up the grossest, most disgusting sounding words below, then impress your friends by learning how to say these words you probably don't know how to pronounce.

Buildup of skin and other crud found between the foreskin and penis.
Rounded or swollen looking. 
A dairy product obtained by curdling milk. Can substitute soy. 
A white/yellowish liquid formed on the site of a wound or infection. 
Of a wound or sore that becomes septic; suppurate.
To produce a discharge or substance.
The slow escape of a liquid or gas through small holes or porous material.
Sightly damp, wet, or humid.
A slippery secretion produced by and covered by mucous membranes. 
A liquid secreted by mucous membranes.
