Remember that 1980s campy pop-culture classic movie Flash Gordon? You know, the one with the awesome Queen soundtrack which starred former U.S. Marine Sam J. Jones as the hero? Would it surprise you to learn that the actor has now switched his gears from acting to become a real-life bodyguard?
Throughout history, war has always been one of the best economic boosters—producing all those weapons and supplies take people, and with so many soldiers in the field, it opens up even more jobs at home.

Zombies have already been popular for a while, but after a naked homeless man was shot while eating another man in Miami last week, the world went zombie crazy.

Cannibalism is in the news a lot lately, what with people eating other people's faces and hearts and dismembering bodies left and right.
