Never was there a tale of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo. Wrong! There were plenty of tales of similar woe that predated Romeo and Juliet, many disturbingly similar to it, in fact. These three obscure tales of the lovelorn give that old dusty tale a run for its money in the category of tragic romance.
Underarms stains or dark skin in the armpits are a common problem among many people. While you may have the perfect bikini body, the dark stains under your arms may put a bit of a downer on showing yourself off at the beach. This condition can be cause by a lot of things. for some people, it is in their genetics. For others it can be caused by dead skin cells, hyper-pigmentation, shaving and excess sweating.

Whatever the cause, it is always embarrassing, but never fear there are a variety of ways to fix this issue.

Not only that, but he overcame being exposed to exorbitant amounts of radiation to live to a ripe old age.
This is H. Jon Benjamin. While it is unlikely you will recognize him by his average-looking mug, complete with receding hair line and grey-dabbled beard, if you heard his voice even in the din of a busy coffee shop, your mind would be overcome with a torrent of nostalgia. For near 20 years, this average-looking man has built his fame on the back of his sultry baritone voice and that has that just perfect amount of slightly-annoyed irritation in its tone.
They say beauty is pain, but this saying isn't a recent adoption. Plucking the hair from one's eyebrows and chemical peels that burn away a layer of skin for a smooth face seem like a tiny pin prick compared to some of the things women have done throughout history to look beautiful. Some of these practices are downright barbaric, but the fashion of the time demanded that old timey fashionistas conform or be ostracized from their social circles. Today is not so different in that respect, but those who constantly demand to be in the fashion should be glad there is no need to bind their feet or crack their rib cages.

For trend chasers and the good old-fashioned hipster, Halloween must be a hard holiday. You can't just be a bourgeois vampire or some pleb in a ghost costume. You know, unless it is ironic. However, even if you are not trying to stay ahead of the trends, you can occasionally put yourself into a Halloween situation where you want one kick ass Halloween costume. If you don't want to be scary or sexy this Halloween, why not be pop culture-y?
Today, eating mass amounts of food is nothing particularly special. The world of competitive eating is even centered around eating ridiculous amount of food. However, aside from all those non-competitive eaters in the poorer parts of the world, most modern gluttons don't know the true meaning of insatiable hunger, at least not to the extent of one medieval Frenchman. While demonized for being a cannibal, a crime against nature that is certainly hard to accept, this man painted monster by history is a victim of circumstance and disease. This is the tale of Tarrare. He was a man and he was very hungry.
On October 23rd, Netflix aired the third and final season of Hemlock Grove, one of its original shows created by Eli Roth. However, right from the get-go, the show had a bad habit of raising more questions than it left answered as well as dropping plot lines like sacks of rotten meat. This left most final episodes throughout the three seasons of the series open to speculation and interpretation. However, does Hemlock Grove end closing up all those open plot lines and itching questions in its finale?
For large dog breed lovers there are few other breeds as large or a noble looking as the Tibetan Mastiff. However, while some large dog breeds are gentle giants on all occasions, the Tibetan Mastiff is not. Throughout their history, this breed has stood as guards and warriors for the likes of Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun. They were bred to be fierce and protective. The Tibetan Mastiff is not for everyone, owning a Tibetan Mastiff requires dedication to properly training and understanding this unique breed, not to mention a dedication to grooming it.
Everyone has had a food craving at some point in their life, whether they realize it or not. It may be there the salty goodness of potato chips, the sweet creaminess of ice cream or the richness of chocolate, but it has been craved to the point where it is impossible to resist. Expecting mothers and hardcore bodybuilders know that cravings are your brain's way of letting you know it is missing some value able piece of nutrients in the body. However, it is easy to decode what your body needs based on what food it craves; there are also healthy ways to satisfy these cravings.
Deodato, Argento, Bava, Martino - the horror movie genre owes a lot to these brave sons of Italy. That collection of the aforementioned surnames and many more produced wholly unique masterpieces that helped shaped the movies we see today, for better or worse. Perhaps there is something profoundly terrifying in Italy (like the gateway to hell if you believe Dante Alighieri) that allowed these creators to offer up their frightening, gory films, but regardless there is enough Italian horror to keep connoisseurs engaged for a short, well-spent lifetime.
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'm a binge-watcher, and I am not ashamed to admit it. To me, writing seven hours a day in complete silence is my own personal hell. I like to keep something on while I'm working just so I can take breaks and kind of zone out to think about things. In terms of what show, the longer the series, the better for binge-watchers like me. However, it is also crucial that the show doesn't demand engagement like Pretty Little Liars where you constantly have to be able to read those darn text messages. What better genre for long, only somewhat engaging shows than reality TV? However, instead of turning on the Real Housewives of Wherever, I enjoy competitive cooking shows because, you guessed it, I like to cook.
Strong, resourceful, fearless, and, in Wonder Woman's case, has a rope trick for every situation - when it comes to the ideal of a strong woman, the Amazons perfectly embody it. For every female athlete that wants to go the distance, every business woman that wants to climb to the pinnacle, and every little girl that aspires to be more than a wife and mother, the Amazons are the perfect role model. Unfortunately, not counting the nomadic Scythian matriarchy that may have inspired them, the Amazons of Ancient Greece are myths.
They're the reason you look before you place your hands behind the furniture or shake out an old sweater after it's been in the closet for awhile. They make your skin crawl when you think about them, and the strange part? There are probably a few of them within six feet of you right now. These creepy, crawly subjects of most nightmares are, of course, spiders.
