Reinventing the Catfish - 5 Ways to Cook Catfish (Other than Frying)

Catfish is excellent table fare, but sadly the experience is usually limited to only a handful of restaurants unless you know an avid fisherman. Unfortunately, both only know how to eat it one way - deep fried. A deep fried slab of catfish is okay every now and then, but after years of greasy beer batter and crispy cornmeal, it leaves something to be desired. Originally, catfish was fried because of its unique physiology. The fish has a scale-free, slime covered skin that allows it to essentially taste its surroundings. As it is a bottom feeder, it tastes a lot of mud, thus the meat of wild catfish will also taste a bit like mud as well. As the batter covers up that taste and the fish is nice and flakey by nature, frying became cooking method of choice.

Forgotten But Not Gone - 20 Ghost Towns You Can Actually Visit

Some towns grow quickly, sprouting up as if overnight as a new business brings money and jobs to the area. Some towns grow slowly, attracting people slowly over time due to a variety of different factors. However, some towns cease to grow at all. Through some economic, natural or financial devastation, the residents of the town are forced to leave their homes and look for greener pastures as, for most people, a town cannot survive without infrastructure, jobs or community. These are ghost towns. The buildings are there, but nobody is home. The term "ghost town" is most often associated with the old Wild West towns from the western United States, but ghost towns exist all around the world. Some of them you cannot visit, usually because it is downright dangerous, but others you can visit, explore and even tour as an attraction in the area.

The Pirate's Life for Ye - How to Be A Successful Pirate in ArcheAge

ArcheAge is a previously Asia-only Sandbox MMORPG that has recently made its appearance on the western stage. ArcheAge is praised for its in-depth crafting system, expansive world for players to explore and PvP that allows player to not just fight another faction, but their own as well. Those who have indulged in ArcheAge may know of the two default factions - the Nuia and the Haranya - but those are not the only options available. The game allows players who commit enough bad deeds to become banished from their faction and join the Pirate faction, officially embracing the pirate's life. While many are enticed by the pirate's life in ArcheAge, it's not easy. Getting into the Pirate faction can be a task in and of itself, but the pirate's life comes with as many downfalls as it does benefits.

Class Building Basics - How to Create the Most Powerful Classes in ArcheAge

ArcheAge, a previously Asian-only MMORPG, has brought something to the western MMO world that has not often been seen - multiclassing. In ArcheAge, the class system revolves around players picking three different skill sets to create a wide array of different character builds. With ten different skill sets, this allows ArcheAge players to create over 100 different classes of characters. While players are urged to play with different skill sets to create a character that suits them, unfortunately not all class builds are created equal. Those who want to play competitively in PvP or dungeons will want a powerful build that brings useful utility while those who want to pursue the alluring, yet dangerous, pirate life of crime will want both power and tools to aid in escape as well as going undetected.

How to Find Out What Google Knows About You (and How to Stop It)

Everyday billions of people get on their designated internet connected devices and use Google services such as Maps, Gmail, YouTube and its good old search engine function. Each time they do, they are sharing information about themselves with Google and the Big G in turn shares it with advertisers. That's how they make their money off all their free services. Of course, while the fact that Google remembers all your haphazard and whimsical searches may seem scary, it does ultimately help the user in most cases. Google uses the information it collects on you to generate search results that have been filtered according to your interests, yet there still remains an option to opt out of it all.

Cosmic Avengers Assemble! - 8 Characters You Will Want To See In Guardians of the Galaxy 2

In 2014, James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy forced five unlikely allies and criminals together and saw them transform into proper heroes. In 2015, Guardians of the Galaxy fans have watched, re-watched, and re-re-watched the movie hundreds of times and now are patiently waiting the sequel. However, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie compared to its comic book source material was fairly sparse. The comics not only told the story of these cosmic avengers but opened up a large part of the Marvel universe with off-earth stories. As it stands, the GoG team was much larger so for the sequel, Gunn has plenty of new and interesting people to bring in, and that's not even counting all the other interesting characters NOT on the GoG team. For those that don't fancy exploring the Guardians world in the Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning comics, here's a quick taste of some of the characters you will definitely want to see make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

By Odin's Beard! - The Best Thor Comic Books

With Thor smashing up the box office with his mighty hammer, there are tons of people looking to break their way into the source material of their favorite Norse God. It can be difficult to break into comics as knowing where to start is a task. There are a lot of great stories out there, however let's be honest, starting at the beginning of Thor's world which would be Journey into Mystery #83, the first appearance of Thor is awesome if you can find the issue. However, in comics starting at the beginning is difficult because the issues can be hard to find. That doesn't mean you cannot enjoy the story without reading all those stories from the 60's, 70's and 80's. Some of Thor's side stories are some of the most amazing and engaging comics out there.
