There’s a haunted house so terrifying few people actually make it through!


Haunted houses are always popular around Halloween, and just like everything we do, humans always find a way to go a little overboard. There is one haunted house, called “Blackout Haunted House,” where you must be over 18 to enter and must go through alone. After you enter, you have to stay on the line or will be immediately removed from the house. You can’t touch the actors or walls, and you’re not even allowed to speak!

The house is so violent that a protective mask has to be worn at all times. So what makes it so terrifying? Ridiculously violent, and sexual, acts are constant on the walk and the majority of people are so disturbed they leave by saying, “safety,” which is the only word allowed to be uttered. Would you go? Tell us in the comments!

An American Supermodel starred in an ad that was so racy, it caused car accidents all over Europe. Find out who it was


In 1994, major clothing retailer H&M was launching a new campaign to promote their new lingerie line all over Europe. They wanted to really grab the attention of their consumers, so they hired former Playmate of the Year Anna Nicole Smith.

You may know her as the face of Guess? Jeans or as 1993’s Playmate of the Year, but Anna Nicole’s Smith’s most famous picture was when she posed in lingerie on billboards all over Europe. The enlarged black and white photos, depicting a voluptuous Anna Nicole laying on her back, caused over eighteen car accidents in several major European Cities.

The distracted drivers were oblivious to the other surrounding cars, as they turned their heads to catch one more glimpse of the gorgeous Anna Nicole.

Before her untimely death in 2007, Anna Nicole continued to turn heads when she campaigned for weight-loss product Trim Spa in her bikini on television and billboard ads in 2003.

In 2004, she posed naked in a fashion magazine to prove that she did not undergo surgery to lose weight and that Trim Spa did in fact work.

Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions doesn't do so well with critics. Nothing they made has ever done better than 68%!


When is it time to give up on your craft of film producing? Is it after failing to release a critically successful movie after 10 attempts? 20? Well that never stopped Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions from releasing many movies each year, none of them getting higher than a 68 on Rotten Tomatoes.

Critics may not be fans of Adam Sandler and crew's sense of humor and film making, but it sure has struck a chord with movie goers. Most of the films have grossed well over $100 million and have become very profitable. The highest grossing movie was “Grown Ups,” making a whopping $271.4 million, and getting completely panned with a 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics tried to warn movie fans about the sequel with a 7% rating, but that still brought in $243.6 million.

The highest rated Happy Maddison movie was Funny People in 2009 which only made $71.5 million, losing about $4 million. Four of the movies manage to get some awards for the lowest rated movies of all time, scoring less than 3. “The Master of Disguise” scored a 1, “Jack and Jill” scored a 3, and “Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star” and “Strange Wilderness” both scored a whopping 0. Keep trying guys!

Ever tried to fix something and just made it worse? Thats called the "Cobra" effect. Learn more


The term refers to any situation that is made worse by the attempts of higher powers to make it better. During the British rule of colonial India there was a large problem found in dealing with the area’s native species of snake, the Cobra.

Eventually the situation got bad enough that the British government decided to offer a bounty for dead snakes. At first this proved to be a success, with many snakes being turned in and a large percentage of the snake population disappearing.

However, people began keeping snakes for breeding purposes—that way they could continually procreate the creatures and kill the Cobra’s for revenue until they were discovered. The British attempted to shut down the snake breeding operations by removing the bounty, upsetting the serpent farmers, who retaliated by setting the now worthless snakes free again. In the end the government came out on the bottom and a larger snake problem than they had started out with.

Another example is found in Vietnam where a government paid people to kill rats who had grown overpopulated. Sly individuals would cut off the tail of the rats so that they could collect their bounty without limiting their future revenue.
