Best (and Healthiest) Drinks for the Summer Time Besides Water

Let's be honest, a nice cold glass of water really hits the spot sometimes, but it gets old. Water is the perfect drink, health-wise, but in terms of flavor it can really leave people wanting. That's why we often forgo water for acidic drinks like cola and easy-to-make powdery...

Game of Thrones: 7 Fan Theories So Crazy They Just Might Be True

No matter whether you are die-hard book fan or just a casual show watcher, Game of Thrones season six is a big step. While George R.R. Martin casually takes his time with The Winds of Winter, the show has already surpassed the books in terms of storyline, making season six entirely new territory for everyone. However, it has long been known that Martin shared how A Song of Ice and Fire ends with the show runners, stating that they will both end the same, but will take different routes to get there. This has caused theorists to study each episode, creating new theories and adapting old ones to fit what might happen next. That being said, they have come up with some theories that are truly out there, but the evidence behind them is nothing short of convincing.

How Do Braces Move My Teeth, Anyway? - The Surprising Complexity of Teeth

It's a common question, one that curious people always ask and one that orthodontists hear all the time: "How do braces move my teeth, anyway?" It is quite mystifying how they work. After all, they look just like a few thin wires and metal brackets held in place by rubber bands. However, the process is actually almost as simple as it looks, though it does belittle the complexity of the tooth movement that is going on under your gums.

Top 8 of the Most Deadly Dictators in Human History

Some people make bad decisions. Typically they result in a really bad hangover, someone deeply offended, or a few awkward conversations. However, when a person in complete and total power of a country makes a bad decision, people die. A lot of people. Over the last 150 years, people who have been given all the power have committed enough genocides, brutal wars, and systematic murders to teach the world that no one person should ever be given complete power again.

20 Reasons You Need a Vegetable Garden in Your Life This Year

Have you ever looked out over the grassy expanse of your backyard or that barren bit of concrete on your patio and felt like something is missing? It is, and that "something" is a vegetable garden. If you have never grown a vegetable garden before, then 2016 is the year to start. Food prices are constantly on the rise and we find ourselves paying more and more for produce that barely tastes like anything at all.

The Division: Creating an Effective Solo Build

Is it possible to play The Division alone? Of Course. Most players leveled through the story alone, nipped about the Dark Zone alone, and can do some endgame activities alone. Just because The Division is a quasi-MMO doesn't mean those living the single-player lifestyle have to play by The Man's rules. While many missions on challenging mode may be shut off to the lone hunter who doesn't want to have to deal with people, many hard mode missions are completely doable to a party of one. For those looking to take on The Division's endgame on their own, consider these tips when crafting an effective solo build.

The Division: How to Unlock the Daily Story Missions

For many players is may still be too early for them to have reached the max level cap of 30, but with players topping out at max level as early as 15 hours after launch, a whole new world of end game has opened up, or rather at least the end game that isn't comping next month. Players may be a little lost at first, mostly because there isn't too much to do aside from Dark Zone exploration, but one of the primary activities that a max level player should be doing is their daily missions. These missions not only reward some high quality loot, but they are also one of the best ways to grind out the end game currency of The Division

The Nature of Good and Evil - The 6 Most Misunderstood Villains in Video Games

It is hard to create a good villain.

Far Cry Primal - How to Tame Every Animal and What Perks They Offer

Far Cry Primal puts players in control of Takkar, the lone survivor of his hunting party amongst the earliest evolutions of humanity. While Takkar is a capable survivor on his own, he needs a bit of help in the constantly dangerous ancient Earth. In previous entries in the Far Cry series, your character supplemented his own ability to survive with just a ridiculous array of weaponry. In Far Cry Primal, the guns are gone and Ubisoft said, "Here, use his pointy stick instead." Thankfully, even if the guns are gone, the most deadly weapon in the Far Cry series still remains - the animals. No longer do you need to toss a hunk of meat into an outpost to have a tiger or a pack of wolves go wild, but in Far Cry Primal, you can tame the animals and have them do your bidding at will.

Shudder - The Awesome All-Horror Streaming Service That Swept Me Off My Feet

I might be strange, but after a long day of writing, reading, writing, and laying around on the couch in order to do a little reading, I like to unwind by watching a movie. Yes, that's not so strange, but I have a particular passion for only one genre of movie - straight up blood-curdling, spine-tingling, give-me-nightmares-every-night-of-my-life horror. I guess something about being irrevocably terrified by watching movies like the Halloween series and House on Haunted Hill as a very young kid with my much older siblings made me a bit of a scare junkie, forever chasing that terror that made me feel so alive back then. Regardless, while I'm chasing that high, which is becoming increasingly hard to fulfill with the dismal state of modern horror, I constantly switch between Hulu and Netflix, never wanting to pay for both nor being able to afford to. And then I found Shudder.
