The Arrowverse is chock-full of craziness, opening up all kinds of doors for CW superhero fan theories to run rampant. Fan theories about Arrow generally revolve around the Season 5 finale, whereas fan theories about Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow look ahead to future seasons, speculating on what’s to come.

Weirdly, The Flash fan theories are the only ones really focused on the present. Well, kinda. At least focused on the not-too-distant future, in the case of Savitar’s identity. Actually, not-too-distant in the real world, not The Flash timeline where the Savitar showdown actually takes place in 2024, and you know what, forget it. There are a lot of theories. And with so much lazy writing crazy stuff going on in each universe, any number of things could happen.

Let’s take a look at some interesting speculation about the future of the Arrowverse. Some are likely to come to fruition, and others are sheer lunacy. You be the judge.

<![CDATA[The Worst Things About Going to Bars in Your 30s]]> //www.ranker.com/list/worst-things-about-going-to-bars-in-your-30s/lauren-slocum Bars and booze... we love to hate them and we hate to love 'em. When you're thirty, you're too old to wear a sombrero in a bar, but you still love drowning your sorrows in a delightful glass of sudsy alcoholic self-confidence. So what does a thirsty 30-something do? Suck it up and deal with all of these annoying scenarios that you WILL experience if you don't choose your bars wisely. 

Realizing you've outgrown your favorite watering hole is a sad, sad thing. Suddenly, the place you used to flee to for refuge and solitude has turned into a meat market for rabid college students and a breeding ground for terrible selfies. And college kids and selfie sticks hardly scratch the surface when it comes to why bars suck. Have you ever heard of a thing called Trap music? Oh, what? You couldn't hear me over the obnoxious volume of the not-so-ironic Spice Girls and Limp Bizkit jams? 

But what are the absolute worst things about going out when you're in your thirties? This list of reasons bars are the worst just might be the reason you save money this month. Or, maybe it'll inspire you to start looking for seedier dive bars on the outskirts of town - we'd all rather drink with a crusty biker gang than a pack of frat bros, anyways. Vote up the most relatable terrible bar situations and add any of your own to the list!

Rick and Morty brought attention to the world's grievous lack of McDonald's Mulan Szechuan Sauce, sending the Internet up in arms. Unsurprisingly, this isn't the first time people felt deprived of discontinued fast food sauces, the chains you know and love so quick to betray you. Who can forget when Taco Bell recklessly got rid of their glorious Lava Sauce, or when Wendy's mistakenly decided they didn't need Ghost Pepper Sauce anymore? These limited edition fast food sauces left everyone's mouths watering and craving more.

That being said, not all old sauces from fast food restaurants can call themselves delicacies. For example, McDonald's once made a spaghetti sauce, perhaps meant to go on top of your fries? Some of these sauces are also still sold in select locations, leaving the rest of us super jealous. The value of a fast food sauce rests in the eye of the beholder, so such answers are yours to discover. Which discontinued sauce do you want to see come back the most? Given how Micky D's began talking about bringing Szechuan sauce back, you can never say never. Maybe, just maybe, the Chicken Select will make a reappearance too.

The Star Wars franchise has always been about more than just space battles and intense action. With the introduction of the Expanded Universe (now Legends) in the form of novels, comics, and other types of media, fans received a bounty of information to speculate and theorize about. As such, Star Wars fan theories have come to dominate the conversations of countless nerds. This has not changed when it comes to the latest movie in the series, as many fans have tried to figure out the plot of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The Force Awakens not only brought the Star Wars saga back to the big screen, it also introduced many new characters and story elements. Unsurprisingly, the first installment of the new trilogy left plenty of questions unanswered. While the next film will surely provide answers, in the meantime there have been plenty of The Last Jedi fan theories, as people try to come up with their own ideas about what will happen. They range from fully-formed concepts to simple The Last Jedi rumors, and they are all fascinating (and sometimes plausible) in their own way.

American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy loves classic horror movies and it shows. There are dozens of classic horror references in AHS, from quick shots and bits of scoring to entire plot lines that borrow heavily from horror's greatest hits. 

Horror movie sources in American Horror Story extend from silent films to The Blair Witch Project, but Murphy gives the most love to classics from the 1970s and '80s including The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, The Shining, and Carrie. He also delves into some more obscure horror movies, with nods to white-eyed witches in New Orleans and psychopathic teen predators in the UK. And of course some motifs, like demonic pregnancies or pig-headed murderers, are so ancient it's hard to even pin down when they first appeared on the scene.

Look back at the times American Horror Story paid homage to old movies and vote up your favorite moments.

History is a murky concept at best, and it gets murkier the further back one goes. That’s why it’s often so surprising to learn about famous historical figures who lived at the same time, let alone historical moments that happened at the same time. Sometimes, it’s even more surprising to learn about historical figures who were born at the same time, which, rude as it may sound, often gives one a true sense of just how damn old some people are!

History is full of amazing paths that crossed. Thanks to all the famous world leaders who were alive at the same time, humanity has had some unlikely friendships throughout history, like the one between Elvis and Nixon, who invented the war on drugs. As they say, it’s a small world, after all, and it also happens to be a world filled with interesting people - many of whom walked the Earth at the exact same time.

<![CDATA[Current TV Shows with the Best Costumes]]> //www.ranker.com/list/best-costumes-on-tv-right-now/lisa-waugh

The best costumes on TV are important in communicating many things to an audience: character, time and place, and where the person falls on the social ladder - killer, king, criminal, lawyer, villain, white hat. Costumes can speak volumes without an actor uttering a word. 
Costume designers and those in the wardrobe department have to be masterminds. They have to turn the script and the director’s vision into reality, or the reality of the screen. They must capture the essence of the characters, visually convey clues and insight, all while putting in thousands of hours to do so. The costumes should be the skin of the character and not overwhelm the actor or distract from the story. If the designer is doing his or her job, you might not even notice the costumes. 
Historical period dramas are demanding, but as the Fargo costume designer will tell you, finding doubles for outer wear for characters who are working in freezing weather and about to be killed is also a challenge. Nothing is ever easy about costume design. The preparation, the on-camera edits, the on-the-fly repairs, you have to be organized and have the patience of a saint to maintain a long-term career. A sense of humor and an excellent team are essential.  

So which current television shows of 2016-2017 set the standard for excellent costume design? Well, Game of Thrones is an easy top pick. Outlander’s costumes are made from scratch, including nearly one thousand pieces of wardrobe for season one. Reign is a delightful blend of 16th century and modern day styles. Peaky Blinders demonstrates the elegance of the classic English driving cap. Fargo keeps warm while it cooly kills off characters.

Which current shows with the best costumes on TV stand out? The historical costume dramas, or the funky Cold War Members Only jackets of The Americans? Cast your votes below!

When autumn arrives, with its changing leaves and chilly air, so does the season for all things spooky. For children, October and Halloween mean costumes and candy. For adults, this time means a chance to party or play pranks – or summon something truly frightening, if they dare.

According to folklore, All Hallows' Eve is the time when spirits and monsters prowl the Earth. What better way to celebrate this time of year – and scare your party guests silly – than by playing some nerve-wracking Halloween games? You've probably played the classics, like attempting to summon Bloody Mary in the mirror or communicating with ghosts through a Ouija board. But what about visiting a fortune teller? Or, if you're particularly brave, summoning your very own demon?

Growing up doesn't mean the frightening fun of Halloween has to end. Classic and obscure Halloween games can chill and thrill participants of all ages. Just be careful you don't wind up scared to death.

Ever found yourself saying, "Take it with a grain of salt" when warning someone to be discerning about information they've heard from a questionable source? How about accusing someone of "jumping on the bandwagon" when you find out they like something just because it's popular? Or telling someone to "get off their high horse," because you feel like they're being condescending?

Ever wonder where those phrases came from? All the common expressions on this list are literally antiquated expressions stemming from times long past: when a horse's mouth could tell you how much that horse was actually worth, or when soldiers had to literally bite down on a bullet in lieu of painkillers when being treated for an injury.

Read on to discover the true origins of your favorite outdated phrases still in use, and discover their earliest meanings. The oldest one here even dates back to 77 A.D.!

<![CDATA[Famous Firsts in Space Travel and Exploration]]> //www.ranker.com/list/firsts-in-space/ranker-science With the launch of the world's first satellite, Sputnik, in 1957, the modern space age began, and countless space firsts would follow. By the end of the next decade, the first manned space flight and the first people in space were years in the past, and both Russia and the United States had developed space programs, amid a tense space race to be the first to land a man on the moon. The United States won that one with "one giant leap for mankind" in July 1969.

Since that historic Moon landing, there have been many more space firsts as space travel and space exploration have pushed their own boundaries: the first reusable spacecraft (the space shuttle), the first landing on Mars, the first space telescope, the first space station and, in July 2015, the first flyby of dwarf planet Pluto.

The space race may be over, and the first space flight is just a part of space travel history, but that doesn't mean mankind has stopped "boldly going where no man has gone before." Peruse some of history's most notable space firsts below and let your imagination wander... perhaps to "a galaxy far, far away." What do you think the next space first will be? Who will be the next big names in the history of space travel?

Until Captain America: Civil War turned the topic into an entire plot point, superhero movie audiences were starting to get fussy about the amount of collateral damage inflicted by their heroes. And even though MCU and DCEU releases often fall into the category of movies where the heroes did more harm than good, there are plenty of other offenders that don't follow the same formula. Some of the entries on this list are comedies, some are classics, and more than a handful are summer popcorn movies with the biggest disasters.

Audiences love cheering for the protagonist, but where do we draw the line on suspense of disbelief when an entire building burns down in order for a hero to save a cat stuck in a tree? In addition to all the times a film's protagonists have likely killed off an abundance of people off-screen in their pursuits, the financial cost of the destruction inflicted is almost never factored in to a story's "happy ending." It's time to consider the true cost and list some of the worst offending movies where the price of saving the day just wasn't worth it.

If you've ever been watching a movie when a sudden plot twist left you feeling you're watching an entirely different film, you may have been the victim of a movie that totally changed genre. While there are many movies that took hard left turns, most of the movies that have totally different second halves use the twist for a good reason.

When The Sound of Music switches from feel-good musical to escaping-from-Nazis-suspense, the audience roots for the protagonists since we've developed a relationship with them. And when Titanic shifts from love story to life-or-death action film, the romance between Jack and Rose has been set up enough that viewers aren't sunk along with the ship.

But not all movies are able to shift tone or genre so easily and many movies that shifted tones partway through lost their audience's attention as well as any understanding of the film's story. So, what makes some movies that made dramatic tonal changes work and others not? It depends how the first part of the movie is set up, as well as how different the two halves of the film really are. Here are the best examples of schizophrenic films that left viewers with whiplash after a dramatic story shift.

The start of each school year brings a new round of required reading for students. Not every book speaks to everyone, but at one point over the course of your schooling, the stars align and you're assigned great books that were required reading. We all had weeks in middle school or high school when we primarily relied on Cliff’s Notes to prep us for our reading quizzes, but every once in a while you would actually have time to read the assigned books and maybe you found yourself completely engrossed.

For instance, you may have grumbled about cracking open your copy of The Great Gatsby, but after those first few chapters, you found yourself captivated by the destructive decadence of the era and the mystery surrounding Jay Gatsby and his past.

You knew To Kill a Mockingbird was an important book, but until you read it, you never realized how culturally relevant it was - not until you read words like, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

While The Great Gatsby and To Kill a Mockingbird might not be a the top of your list of required reading books you enjoyed, one of the many books listed below might.

The best old age makeup in film usually falls to one decision, hiring an actor who can either play the hell out of the role with minimum makeup or is close to the age of the character. But sometimes, a story calls for the actor to play many ages throughout a film. That’s when makeup gets tricky. 

Brad Pitt had the help of more than 50 makeup and visual effects pros to become Benjamin Button at all this various de-aging stages, and it’s some of the best old age effects to date. However, 30 years before that film was made, makeup legend Dick Smith pulled off some of the best movie makeup ever in the ‘70s, using only practical tools. 

Achieving the best movie makeup by aging young actors is damn near impossible. Director James Cameron opted for an older actress to play Rose at the end of Titanic for just that reason. Steven Spielberg did the same in Saving Private Ryan with Matt Damon’s character. Frank Darabont followed suit in The Green Mile with Tom Hanks’s 108-year-old character. 

Most of the time, best old age makeup in movies comes down to a minimalist approach. Jo Van Fleet got some gray hair and a few liver spots to play Ella Garth in Wild River and audiences believed the 45-year-old was in her early 80s. She was just that good. 

Let’s look at some examples of some of the best old age makeup and affects, from the believable to ancient monster drag. And if you care, there are some SPOILERS.

If you’re a fan of Rick and Morty then you’re aware of just how sad Morty’s dad, Jerry, can be. It’s almost like the show’s creators truly hate Jerry and want to see him cry within the first 60 seconds of every episode. There’s an unending amount of sad Rick and Morty Jerry moments, but these are some of the most downright pathetic Jerry moments on Rick and Morty.

Jerry is a pathetic, sorry excuse for a dad. He's essentially half-man, half-worthles-garbage-person. He’s the kind of pasty guy that you want to punch in the face before he even speaks one word. Over the course of series, Jerry has become increasingly involved in the titular duo’s shenanigans, but that doesn’t mean that he’s gotten any cooler.

The audience has even been treated to the idea that the one thing it would take to turn Jerry from a sniveling caricature of a man into an actual father is an all out Cronenberg mutant apocalypse. It shouldn’t take that kind of thing to be a good dad or an okay husband! As it stands, Jerry is kind of a waste of space, and these are his most pathetic moments.

<![CDATA[The Scariest Clown Movies in Film History]]> //www.ranker.com/list/movies-with-the-scariest-clowns/ranker-horror Movies with the scariest clowns are designed to play on our irrational fear of the normally jolly, happy creatures. Yes, we'd all like to think that clowns are funny and wonderful, but sometimes they aren't. Sometimes, they're serial killers. Sometimes they're possessed by the devil himself. This list includes some of the best scary movies with clowns in them. Vote up the ones that freaked you out the most, and vote down any movies with clowns that just didn't do anything for you. You can also rerank this list and, by all means, add to it!!

Some of the greatest horror films ever made have included terrifying clowns. Take Pennywise the Dancing Clown from 'IT' -- doesn't the mere mention of his name send chills up your spine? Or how about that clown doll from 'Poltergeist'? Admit it - if you owned a clown doll, and you watched that movie, you threw it out/burned it as soon as you got home. And of course, you've got the brilliant Heath Ledger performance as one of the most evil clown-men in film history, The Joker in 'The Dark Knight.' It counts. He's a clown. And he's horrifying.

Do you have a fear of clowns, in movies or otherwise? Know this word: coulrophobia. The best coulrophobia movies are designed to play on this often deep-seated, common phobia. Certainly, some excellent B-movies feature killer clowns. How about Cheezo, Bippo and Dippo from 'Clownhouse'? This murderous trio is pretty unforgettable. '100 Tears' should definitely get a mention, too. And of course, you've got the movie 'Killer Clowns From Outer Space,' a campy romp that features a bevy of killer clowns.

Sometimes, all it takes to scare us half to death is a brief appearance by a scary clown in a film. Remember those evil nurse clowns in 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure'? No? Watch it again. You're welcome. And the Clown Zombie was only on the screen for a brief time in 'Zombieland,' but he sure made an impact. Really, when you're already afraid of clowns, just a quick appearance can send you diving under your theater seat.

<![CDATA[15 Reasons Commissioner Gordon Is Terrible at His Job]]> //www.ranker.com/list/worst-of-jim-gordon/jacob-shelton Jim Gordon might be one of the worst characters in the DC mythos. Before you get your Batman underoos in a bunch, think about it. He somehow rose to one of the highest positions in the Gotham police force by barely his doing job. In fact, he mostly lucked out because everyone who was his superior got blown up.

Instead of referring to him as Commissioner Gordon, we should just be calling him, Jim Gordon Gotham Resident. As of issue 41 of Batman, written by Scott Snyder, Gordon has found a new way to shirk his responsibilities by dallying around in a mech suit and calling himself Batman 2.0. What lengths won’t this guy go to in order to avoid being a cop? To read about even more of Gordon’s questionable decisions, follow along as we count down all of the reasons Commissioner Gordon is bad at his job.

Not only has Commissioner Gordon had multiple chances to take out bad guys like Joker and Two-Face only to pass them up because of an archaic moral code that doesn’t apply to people once they have half a face and are trying to ransom the moon, but he’s also a terrible detective. The guy’s been working with Batman for decades and still hasn’t figured out that he’s Bruce Wayne. That's on the list, so you can vote on it. Vote up the worst moments of Commissioner Gordon that prove that he’s terrible at his job, and if you remember any major missteps that Jimmy G has made, tell us in the comments.

No one likes to be stereotyped, let alone grouped in with an entire generation, and there is something particularly annoying about the cliches assigned to millennials. Older generations seem fixated on the idea that young people are ruining everything, but the most annoying millennial stereotypes are the ones that actually apply to every generation or are just straight lies. The worst stereotypes about millennials put into perspective just how much people like having someone to blame.

These ideas are at best baseless, and at worst lazy justifications for older generations who refuse to face the fact that the society they have created barely functions on an economic or social justice level. In fact, rather than being the generation that is ruining the country, millennials are often just trying to function in it.

Meanwhile, Baby Boomers won't retire from jobs they are old enough to ride into the sunset from and then blame millennials for being jobless, broke, or "unloyal" as they flit from one bad paying job to the next. But of course that's not all millennials have done. From their supposed social media addictions to their epic ruination of the world as we know it, here's all the stereotypes about millennials that are endlessly annoying.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Dystopian Novels]]> //www.ranker.com/list/greatest-dystopian-novels/walter-graves

Dystopias have become a fascinating genre over the last century as disillusioned writers witnessed and reacted against imperialism, two world wars, including the Nazi and Stalin regime and the treacherous Holocaust. These writers played with the darkest sides of humanity, unearthed by war and technology and used satiric irony to present a destructive vision of the future. Dystopian novels are characterized by a lack of individual freedom, heroes that know something is wrong and contain many WTF moments that make you rethink the current status quo and become aware of the constructed nature of our values and standards.This dystopian novel list is nowhere near a complete list of all dystopian books, but on it are some of the greatest dystopian works of literature of all time (though most is from the 20th and 21st centuries). If you’re a fan of H.G. Wells or George Orwell but are looking for more recent content, the best dystopian books list is the place to be. If your favorite dystopian novel isn’t on the list, make sure to add it so others can find their favorite new read.

No doubt, any great horror film will make the spectator scream in terror, white-knuckle their armrest, and feel like they’re having a heart attack. However, there are a slew of horrifying films that aren't in the horror genre. These movies that traumatize don’t need to rely on gimmicks like a masked killer who never dies or a haunted house that terrorizes its inhabitants. For these 14 scary non-horror movies, there is no monster hiding underneath the bed, and the boogeyman is real.

What makes several of the films on this list especially terrifying is that they actually happened in real life. Is there any greater horror than the events depicted in Schindler’s List? Would a genre horror film like Halloween make one question humanity like 12 Years a Slave?

These movies force the spectator to examine issues of race, drug abuse, and violence. They delve into the deepest pits of the soul and force us to question our own morality. Most of these movies are not for sleepy Sunday afternoons, and most are too disturbing to watch more than once, but certainly important enough to screen when the time is right.

Make your voice heard; vote up your the scariest films that aren't horror movies.

Looking to move into a new home? Maybe you're considering jumping on the tiny house trend. They sound so appealing: you could simplify your life and really focus on the important things, like disposing of your fecal matter. You read that right. And that's just one of the reasons why tiny houses are hell. They're a lot of work, they don't come with great Internet options, and they are actually super tiny.

What's really behind this awful tiny house trend? Money, of course. Would anyone consider a tiny house if they cost as much as a traditional home? Of course not! The biggest appeal by far is the price tag. But here's the thing: they're pricier than you think. Sure, you could buy a shed from Home Depot and throw it on the back of the trailer, but that'll still cost a few grand, and you won't have a toilet. 

Living in a tiny house would be the worst. From limited water to questionable security, here are all the reasons why tiny houses are terrible.

In 1997, NASA launched the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft to explore and photograph the mysterious planet Saturn. And now, 20 years later, NASA has released high-resolution photos of exactly what the unmanned spaceship was able to see

Researchers at NASA and the European Space Agency teamed up to design Cassini-Huygens in the 1980s. Named after astronomers Giovanni Cassini and Christiaan Huygens, the spacecraft was designed to not only photograph the planet, but also to collect data from it and its 62 moons. These latest photos come as Cassini-Huygens's trip is coming to a close. It's final phase – called the Grand Finale – started in April 2017. The spacecraft is expected to make its last orbit around the planet in September 2017, transmitting a few more photos before plummeting into the planet's atmosphere below.

<![CDATA[Things Movie Adaptations Had To Leave Out Because They Were Too Dark]]> //www.ranker.com/list/dark-movie-adaptation-omissions/hannah-collins

This article contains movie and book spoilers.

The next time you leave a movie theater having watched an adaptation of a beloved novel or comic book, strain your ears a little and you might just be able to hear the voice of a disgruntled fan muttering, "the book was better..." under her breath. And those disgruntled fans are far from wrong. So many children's book movie adaptations leave the darkest, most disturbing material from the source out of the film. 

Love it or hate it, translating a story from one medium to another is nearly impossible without changing something to make the transition work, whether it's altering characters or plot elements or chopping out entire sections of narrative. This is usually done to improve the pace of a story, focus on the most cinematic (action-based) elements of the story, appease studio directives (i.e. get the rating to justify the budget), or because a creative team wants to make its mark on a story. Whether these changes work or not is subjective, although dark material left out of adaptations often changes to the tone of a story. 

What about those changes made purely to soften the sharper edges of a story? This happens a lot in children's films, but there are cases of movies for adults omitting or censoring controversial elements from the source material. Sometimes it's to appeal to a wider audience, other times because cinema is a visual medium, which makes things a lot more graphic and disturbing than they are on the page. 

Here are some of the disturbing details left out of movie adaptations.

There's pain and suffering without a lot of joy in his books. With the abundance of violence and nightmarish scenarios in Stephen King books, fans have no shortage of literary demons.

From little kids having their arms bitten off by clowns to attempted human sacrifices in the supermarket, there's something terrifying for anyone and everyone. King's use of violence is often sickening and enthralling at the same time. It disgusts you as a reader, but you can't look away, and that's what makes King one of the best writers ever.

Check out the list below to relive some of the horrible things in Stephen King novels, and maybe you'll walk away from this list feeling slightly more traumatized.

At 35,000 tweets and counting, Donald Trump has forever altered America's political landscape, 140 characters at a time. He's also made his share of digital enemies, who've mocked his garish lifestyle, his inability to keep his cabinet members employed, and the overall WTF nature of his presidency.  

So, what does the most powerful man in the world do when attacked on Twitter? Nothing less than the "modern day presidential" equivalent of taking his ball home and refusing to play. He blocks detractors without discrimination; the list of famous people Donald Trump has blocked on Twitter pales in comparison to the list of regular citizens on his do not play list. From the Boston Globe:

"He has blocked people like Angela Belcamino, a New York actress who insulted the president’s golf game in August. (And) Eugene Gu, a surgeon resident in Tennessee... was blocked for mocking the president’s penchant for misspellings."  

The lesson: if you aim for the Trump on Twitter, don't miss, or else you may join this list of celebrities blocked by Trump on Twitter. Tweet wisely, friends.

<![CDATA[Here Are All The Things Millennials Are Killing, According To Olds]]> //www.ranker.com/list/everything-millennials-are-killing/mariel-loveland

Are millennials causing society's downfall? If you asked a baby boomer, the answer is probably a resounding yes. Any non-millennial will agree that millennials are murderers. They are killing industries with their newfangled technology and ethically sourced, all-natural knives. Don't forget the fact that they're all so busy spending all their money on avocado toast that they can't really buy anything else, either - much less a home.

To baby boomers, millennials are wild cards who shoulder massive student debt while ditching the traditional nine-to-five jobs. If you've owned a house since you were the ripe old age of 27, there's no way you'd possibly relate to the fact that minimum wage hasn't increased with inflation. You're one of the oldies who could afford college on a part-time salary, so you wouldn't understand truths about millennials

Due to the differences in economy and society from the 20th to the 21st century, baby boomers and millennials have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye. In fact, there are tons of times when older generations wrongly blame millennials. However, this list outlines the times when baby boomers are right - millennials are killing certain industries and fads. Here are all the things millennials are burying out back – from fabric softener to breastaurants. Baby boomers only: vote up the best things that millennials are

From our Goldilocks-zone planet of Earth we've been able to observe and learn quite a lot about our solar neighborhood. Most of that knowledge has come from high tech probes and telescopes, letting us peek at the other celestial bodies that make up our solar system.

Getting there in person has proved a considerable challenge for our tenacious drive to explore. The whole solar system is hundreds of millions of kilometers of space, inhabited by objects that make up an infinitesimal fraction of that volume. And even if you could live long enough to make the voyage, these places aren't exactly hospitable, with all manners of intolerable cold, heat or toxicity.

But let's just assume we all had a TARDIS or something. What cool things in the solar system could you visit? What outer space tourist sites would be your favorite destinations in an age of space tourism? Once you've considered this important question, why not rank your favorite Star Wars planets also?

That's not to mention all the terrible people on planes. Flying really is a nightmare.

There are endless ways airlines make flying horrible, and they do it to make more money.

By far one of the most popular formats for the best dating reality shows is that of ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. On these dating shows, one person meets an interacts with numerous potential mates over a period of several weeks.

From light sabers to sea urchins it doesn't seem like there is any limit to what we will send into space. Another thing we have sent into space is bacteria. Scientists were curious about what would happen to bacteria in space and they found the answer after they sent some salmonella for a journey and then tested it on animals when it came back to earth. They found that the space bacteria had grown much stronger and so because of that cleanliness in space is of utmost importance. The costs of sending things into space are very high so it must have cost one space tourist a lot of money to get a seat on a rocket headed to the International Space Station. It takes a huge amount of energy to get a rocket free of Earth's gravitational field and for each additional body you have to add a lot of weight in terms of body mass as well as all of the supplies that each person needs to survive.

These are the weirdest things in space if you're looking for a list of things in space. Outer space that is. Everything is in space.
In the name of science, NASA and various organizations have sent dozens of random things into outer space. Here are the geekiest and weirdest ones, judged by the geekiness of the senders because in space, no one can hear you snort.

While these 30 ways to use lemon are not nearly all the ways lemon can be used, they are some of the 30 most useful ways to use the citrus fruit.

Similar to the ways to use Coca Cola, lemon is great for cleaning. It’s not included in household cleaners by coincidence as the acidity makes it a great cleaner while the citrus scent leaves clothing, surfaces and even skin smelling fresh and clean.

But lemon is more than just for cleaning the microwave and deodorizing the laundry, it’s also delicious and nutritious. Add some to rice to leave it tasty and prevent it from sticking. Squeeze it over vegetables to keep them from turning brown. Even enjoy lemon on its own or in tea or water to cleanse the body from inside.

Perhaps a list of the things that lemon cannot do would have been shorter, but that’s no fun. Do you love using lemon around the house? Vote for your favorite uses for lemon below or even re-rank this list of the ways to use lemon all right here!

A few of these are movies and not tv series, such as Akira and Grave of the Fireflies. If you're a fan of Dragon Ball Z, definitely check out Fist of the North Star.

<![CDATA[Taylor Swift's Instagram Has Been Teasing New Music - But Who Will Her New Song Be About?]]> //www.ranker.com/list/who-is-taylor-swifts-new-song-about/mick-jacobs

After going dark on her social media outlets, Taylor Swift returned to Instagram with a cryptic set of videos depicting what appears to be a snake slithering along. The snake motif, associated with Swift after Kim Kardashian revealed her to be a liar, likely plays into Taylor Swift's new single. What you can't fix, you feature, right? No stranger to public enemies, Swift knows how to play this game to her advantage, whether or not you consider 1989 deserving of Album of the Year. Since Swift basically built an empire from her beef with others, this upcoming Taylor Swift single will probably pertain to some perceived slight, no matter how big or small. After all, this is an artist who hypocritically switched her entire view towards streaming services in order to seek revenge upon someone who allegedly stole her backup dancers.

But who, pray tell, will fall on the receiving end of Taylor Swift's new music? Obvious targets included Kardashian, Katy Perry, Kanye West, and Demi Lovato, all figures that publicly show disdain for her. However, maybe she too believes lizard people run the world; maybe she's still seething over Aretha Franklin's "beautiful gowns" shade; maybe she's the animorph snake. Until the latest Taylor Swift single debuts, no one is entirely out of the woods yet.

<![CDATA[The Best Floyd Mayweather Burns By Conor McGregor]]> //www.ranker.com/list/best-conor-mcgregor-floyd-mayweather-burns/rogin-kim

Continuing his rise up the ranks as one of the GOAT in MMA, Conor McGregor only adds fuel to his ascension with his over-the-top trash-talk. He holds no punches, just like in the ring, and it especially shows when you watch Conor McGregor taunting Floyd Mayweather. Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather is possibly the biggest event in combat sports history. The hype only keeps building, and both fighters continue to trade verbal blows on social media, the press, and culminated in a four-city press tour that ended in a roasting. While Mayweather remains the favorite, the best Floyd Mayweather burns by Conor McGregor landed the Irishman a victory in the trash-talk arena.

Analysts speculate that the payday for both fighters will surpass the $100 million mark. The fight will be fought in a boxing ring under boxing rules, and with 10 oz. gloves. So naturally, McGregor's doing all he can to get his name in the news; now, even if he loses, he still retains all the fame and fortune the pre-fight hype bought him these past few months. Not only that, he also secures his legacy, for better or worse, as one of the most outspoken trash-talkers the sports world has ever known.

<![CDATA[What Celebrities Looked Like On TRL Vs. What They Look Like Today]]> //www.ranker.com/list/trl-celebrities-then-and-now/mariel-loveland

MTV's TRL is time capsule filled with overly straightened hair, low-rise jeans and Carson Daly's black painted nails (may they rest in peace). Though the original TRL is just a distant memory, the celebrities who appeared on MTV's hit countdown show have gone on to have incredible careers – from Beyoncé rising from the ashes of Destiny's Child to Shakira quietly becoming one of the most successful Latin-American artists in history.

But in all honesty, fans have forgotten about what celebrities looked like on TRL, and boy are they some of the most memorable moments from Total Request Live. Will anything ever be as good as Justin Timberlake's ramen noodle hair? What about that time Britney Spears scandalously showed off her belly button ring? Kim Kardashian used to wear Uggs! With all the hair-crimping, platform shoes, and terrible '90s and '00s fashion, stars who were on Total Request Live were icons of an era where guy-liner reigned supreme and Von Dutch trucker hats were an acceptable choice for a night out.

Here are some TRL celebrities then and now. Don't say you weren't warned!
