11 Phone Terms Your Kids Will Never Know

by Sam Greenspan

I was talking to a friend recently and mentioned 10-10-220.

My guess is that a lot of people reading this have no idea what that is. For a brief window in the '90s, companies found some phone system loophole. If you dialed their special number - 10-10-220 is the one that stuck in my head, but there were others - you would bypass your own long distance carrier for one that was theoretically cheaper. As we were talking about it, I realized how confusing that speech would be in the future. Not because of the convoluted mess of numbers like 10-10-220 but because I'd also have to explain the concept of "long distance." I put together this list of 11 phone terms, besides long distance and 10-10-220, your kids will never know.

Dumbest Criminals of All Time (Part 4)

Concluding this 4-parts series with another 18 criminals worth mentioning. This is the final of a 4-part series, a total of 108 criminals in all.... 

After being arrested for attempted armed robbery, Christopher R. Voorhis, pictured, admitted that he was intoxicated, had a knife and was bent on stealing beer from a BP station, according to the report of his court appearance in Ocala, Fla. But Voorhis, 26, doesn't understand why the store owner beat him with a pipe, saying, "I was just trying to steal a beer, not money." The owner who wielded the pipe says that Voorhis did demand money. Voorhis says he was beaten about six times on his body, chased out of the store and the owner clobbered his car a few times, so hard that an airbag popped out. Seems Vooris thinks robbers should only be pursued indoors saying, "I understand the man was upset, but he could've stopped when I left the store" and "I thought he went overboard."

The Man Who Fought In WWII With A Sword And Bow

By Emily Upton

Running into battle armed with a broadsword, bow, and quiver of arrows was perfectly acceptable if you were fighting in the Hundred Years’ War or fending off some orcs on Middle Earth. But when it comes to World War II, such medieval weaponry looks like child’s play next to the technology of the time. A sword isn’t the most likely of defences against rifles and tanks.  However, for John Malcolm Thorpe Fleming Churchill, nicknamed “Mad Jack,” there was nothing he’d rather arm himself with than a trusty sword and bow.

5 Most Mysterious Places On Earth


1. Easter Island
Off the coast of Chile, Easter Island doesn’t boast any stories of people disappearing or black magic. It is, however, the home of these wicked warrior statues, some up to 50 feet high. The real question about this island is who carved them and how they got there. What mysterious force do you think made them appear? I guess the only thing to do is to go ask one of the 200 native people living on the island. My bet, though, is that communicating with them might prove fruitless considering there is virtually no knowledge of who they are originally.

Dumbest Criminals of All Time (Part 3)

Let us continue on with this 4-parts series with another 30 criminals worth mentioning. This is the third of a 4-part series, a total of 108 criminals in all....


Three men were arrested for allegedly kidnapping a New Jersey man and driving him nearly 1,200 miles across the country. But apparently the thugs had captured the wrong man, one with the same name. Douglas Stangeland, 46 (pictured), Andrew Wadel, 21, and Lonnie Swarnes, 44, allegedly abducted Jeff Muller, 59, as he was opening his pet supply store in January 2010. According to Muller, the men shot him with a stun gun, bound and stuffed him into a car and then took off for their home state of Missouri. The already-botched plot spun completely out of control when a convenience store owner saw Muller trying to escape and called cops. Vernon County, Mo., police, who call the men "bumbling idiots" say the kidnapping may be connected to a Missouri home invasion in November 2009, when the same three suspects armed and masked allegedly shot the president of a construction company as they hunted for someone by the name of Jeff Muller in connection with a "business arrangement." Authorities say Muller seems to be innocent, with no known ties to the kidnappers. Investigators are examining the possibility he was a victim of mistaken identity. It's still unclear if the intended target even lived in New Jersey. Stangeland, Wadel, and Swarnes were extradited back to New Jersey and charged with kidnapping, which carries a minimum of 20 years behind bars.

The Multi-Colored Crater Lakes Of Kelimutu

Mount Kelimutu, with its multi-colored crater lakes, is the amazing natural phenomenon in central Flores Island of Indonesia. Kelimutu is a passively degassing stratovolcano capped by three crater lakes containing exotic fluids and whose physico-chemical expressions have changed dramatically through the years. Three crater lakes are located on the eastern summit of Kelimutu. Each of the lakes has a distinctive physical structure, a unique geochemical and hydrothermal regime, and a particular historical sequence of color changes controlled by changes in physico-chemical conditions. The visitor is never quite sure what color the lakes will be when they reach the top as they vary significantly. Unlike other crater lakes where the color variation can be predicted, this is not the case with these three lakes. The colors that you can see here are blue, green and black (and they predominate) yet the lakes also change to white, red and blue too.
