Several beautiful women, many of whom were famous, were linked to Presley throughout his career and some of them claimed that Elvis was a beast in bed and was constantly laying it down. But these accounts seem to be in the minority considering most reports of Elvis’ sex life are less than flattering. Many of the bizarre statements made by his former “partners” and associates include that he was afraid of penetration, he had a foot fetish, he was a voyeur, he was bi-sexual, and even that he was a pedophile. And yes, there's more.

You know how TIME always gives us their Person of the Year? Once in a while, they'll include non-humans. On this day (December 26th) in 1982, they named their first non-human - the personal computer. At the time, you probably had a slew of Alpha Betas shouting "NERDS!", but over the past few years, it's consumed every last second of our lives. This year, TIME named the protestor as its Person of the Year, but we think it should've been the meme. There was a new one every other day! Though there were thousands to pore through, we've come up with about 40 of the best. Check 'em out after the jump.

Watching The Italian Job or Ocean’s 11 may give you the sudden urge to become a master thief; for about two minutes. Then you realize you don’t want to spend the next 10-20 years in prison because they always get caught, right? Actually that is very wrong. Even though almost every high profile robbery and heist is eventually solved, there have been a small number of Hollywood-worthy heists that have turned up no arrests or loot. Take a look at “The 5 Greatest Unsolved Heists Ever” after the jump.

It’s hard to determine the exact origins of strains. Even amongst the most official sources, strains that have the same name are not always the same. There is very little uniformity in the marijuana world. That said, there are several strains that have made an impact on marijuana culture and society in general. They may not be the most potent strains, since there are better varieties being produced every day, but they will go down in the books as legendary. Check out which epic strains made the cut after the jump.
Since everybody is on Facebook these days it should come as no surprise that it's got its fair share of creeps and straight-up @ssholes. There have been a lot of Facebook related murders; mostly by jilted lovers and pedophile/rapist types. But since nobody wants to read about the cyberstalker murderer story for the millionth time, we decided to present you with some less serious but still pretty messed up tales of some f**** up situations that spilled over into Facebook land. Check 'em out after the jump.
As you might have heard, 'Merica just launched its new Mars Rover (the Curiosity) over the weekend. Today is also Red Planet Day, so it only makes sense for us to present you with all sorts of “facts” based on “science” that are “true” about Mars (yeah, I know; ridiculous). But we answer to a higher power: Hollywood. When NASA tells us there’s nothing on Mars we scoff because, thanks to Total Recall, we know there’s not only life, but three-titted life. And that’s only the beginning. See how movies portray Mars after the jump.
For a person that loves movies and television, it’s hard to put up with the cr*p passed off as entertainment most of the time. The sad truth is that 99% of movies and TV shows just plain suck. Making the problem even worse is that they re-use the same crappy ideas over and over again, when maybe one out of a dozen actually worked in the first place. So to bring attention to this sickening problem, I've compiled a list of 10 types of shows and movies that have been rehashed into literally weeks of wasted time. Check 'em out after the jump.
November 10th is USMC Day. On that date in 1775 the Continental Marines of the American Revolutionary War was formed by Captain Samuel Nicholas by a resolution of the Second Continental Congress. They were disbanded then resurrected right before the Quasi-War with France. There's no question Marines are bad-ass, but of this group, there are hundreds who have been held above the rest for receiving the Medal of Honor. They don’t just hand that thing out to anyone. These guys have done some pretty unbelievable things to earn this honor. To celebrate the USMC's "birthday", we've gathered 6 of the most bad-ass stories from Medal of Honor winners along with pics of hot chicks in Marine uniforms. Check it out after the jump.
Thanks to the wonders of technology, weapons systems have advanced to the stage where there no longer need to be any moving parts. Furthermore, weapons that the general public knows as "futuristic" are considered yesterday's news to the shadowy, corporate weapons developers. Our ignorance doesn't take away from the fact that what these companies have released to the public is completely mind-blowing. It really makes you wonder what kinds of killer merchandise they have in the works right now. All we can show you are five of the most high-tech weapons you wouldn't believe existed but do -- they're after the jump!
College is expensive; very expensive. That’s why there are so many scholarships up for grabs. Like most things, it unfortunately takes a lot of hard work to get that sweet, sweet money. Well... that's not always true. There are a few weird and/or relatively easy-to-get scholarships that most students don’t even know about; and the majority of them don’t require good grades or even essays!

The best way to determine its authenticity is to get it appraised professionally. Yes it will will cost you even more money, but it's the most accurate way to find a fake. If this option is out of the question (or you're just curious about how testing of jewelry is done), there are several ways to examine the jewelry for authenticity on your own. Click the link to find out how.
It’s no secret that celebrities tend to attract lots of attention (they ask for it). Sometimes, though, that can be unwanted attention not just reserved for the typical stare at a chest or butt. This attention comes from obsessed stalkers, something that I bet Courtney Stodden will soon have invent. These stalkers are all very real, and they range in severity from mildly annoying to deadly. While all of these cases are off the psycho chart, the stalkers on this list all take their obsession to the next level. Check 'em out after the jump.
Everywhere large groups of college kids go; even larger amounts of bullsh*t are sure to follow. But it’s getting to be the time of year again where it becomes harder to brush off those ghost stories as BS. If it seems so unlikely, why don’t you go check it out…by yourself…at night? If this seems out of the question, why not just check out The 6 Scariest Colleges in America in our killer slideshow below... but beware, the last person to use our slideshow had their eyeballs explode and now haunts our office. And she's got this super annoying moan. Check our list after the jump.
