    Titicut Follies (1967)

    Titicut Follies

    Director Frederick Wiseman invented the modern documentary with his roving camera that aimed to capture direct reality. His 1967 film Titicut Follies depicted situations inside of a state hospital for the criminally insane. The film was banned in Massachusetts, where it was filmed, purportedly for violating the privacy of the inmates, but it also exposed the shocking conditions within the asylum.

    Bad grammar

    Hands Holding Mobile Phone with Blank Speech Bubble

    A lot of pressure comes with texting a new match. Something as simple as an exclamation point can rub people the wrong way, and in the world of virtual communication, bad grammar is a first-degree offense. One study found that the majority of men and women reject online suitors solely due to bad grammar in their dating profiles; 75 percent of 9,000 online daters also admitted they would reject anyone who failed to pass a fifth grade spelling bee. Follow these 41 grammar rules—and you’ll automatically sound smarter.

    “Thanks in advance”

    thanks in advance

    This demeaning management phrase, often accompanying some unwanted assignment, is the polite corporate way of saying, “You’d better do this terrible thing or I’ll eat your paycheck.” Don’t miss these words and phrases smart people never, ever use.

    Instead: Cut to the chase with, “I know you don’t want to do this… in advance.”

    Villers Abbey, Belgium

    Villers-la-ville, Belgium

    Constructed in the 12th century, this massive stone structure provides a fascinating look into the lives of monks that lived 900 years ago. This stunning cathedral dome is only one room of the enormous abbey, which stretches over nearly 90 acres of the Belgian village of Villers-la-ville. Today, visitors to the abbey can take a tour of the grounds, the ruins of the abbey, and the surrounding gardens. If intact churches are more your thing, check out these stunning photos of the world’s most beautiful stained glass windows (they’re actually not all in churches)!

    This one’s too small

    Traffic Cones or witches hat at parking area.

    “A parking lot management company ordered 500 of our Safety Cone Stress Balls (approx. 3.25” tall) thinking they were REAL safety cones. Needless to say, when the order arrived, they definitely couldn’t put those out on the street and expect to keep anyone safe. The company was livid, demanding to get their money back. I guess our cute little stress toys weren’t doing their job and keeping them stress-free. Quality Logo Products later accepted this return because clearly there was a huge misunderstanding. It was way easier to bite the bullet than be possibly ambushed by Safety Cone Stress Balls outside of our office!” —Bret Bonnet, co-founder and president of Quality Logo Products

    Fried foods

    french friesDon’t try solving your late-night munchies with a trip to the drive-through. Greasy, fatty foods get through your system slower than protein and carbs, so your body will still be hard at work by the time you try falling asleep, says Richard Shane, PhD, behavioral sleep specialist for New West Physicians, Colorado, and creator of the Sleep Easily Method. “You don’t want the engine of the digestive system cranking away when the rest of your body is trying to go to sleep,” he says. Find out why you crave junk food when you’re tired.
