5: Pay for things in cash. Studies show you will pay less if you shell out cash. In fact, once McDonald's started accepting credit cards, the average amount that people spent on a meal jumped from $4.50 to $7.00. Imagine shelling out 8 twenties for those designer jeans. You'd be wearing Old Navy in no time.
3: Cut out soda. You don't need to drink soda. I'm a hypocrite, because I love soda, even gross soda, But soda is not good for you, and it's expensive--you aren't buying a 2 liter at the supermarket for $1, you're buying a 16 oz. bottle, maybe twice a day, for at least $1.25 a pop(no pun intended--really. Normal people call it soda. Take that, middle states!). That's $12.50 if you only buy during the work week. The savings is comparable to that from smoking (see above).
2: Stop paying for water. If you live in a decent city, the city water is okay to drink; if you have well water, you probably treat it so its consumable. Get a bottle and fill it up. This is the same savings as from soda... Obviously, if you've been a soda drinker, don't start buying bottled water. You'll be healthier, but still broke.

5. Top 5 Best Comic Book (Super Hero) Movies - I liked this one because it was a really tough choice--there are a lot of really good movies based on comic books. You'll like it because it is a field begging for debate.
4. Top 5 Interesting Things About Lewis Carroll - I liked this one because Carroll was an interesting guy, but we only know him from Alice in Wonderland. You'll like it because you only know him from Alice in Wonderland.
3. Top 5 Best "Corey" Movies - I liked it because I remember Corey Haim and Corey Feldman sucked pretty bad, and this list confirmed it to me. You'll like it because you remember all the buzz about these two, and this will show you they were in exactly 2 decent movies.
2. Top 5 Best Atari 7800 Titles - I liked this one because it was a nice nostalgic trip to the early days of home video gaming. You'll like it if you had an Atari 7800, or had a rival system, or like video games.
1. Top 5 Worst TV Euphemisms for F*** - I love this one because it's funny! The things people have come up with to get around the inability to say "fuck" on television are varied and ridiculous. You'll like it, unless you have delicate sensibilities--but in that case, you probably wouldn't be reading the KT5.
Hopefully you'll have a chance to check these out this time around. If you like 'em, share 'em, and like the FB page too!

|I ripped this pic from an awesome Halloween prop |
4: Thermal Video Images - "Those non-moving blobs of heat on the couch where we were just sitting, but which do not appear anywhere that we weren't touching the fabric, which were picked up by the thermal video are probably images of the heat we left behind. Maybe we shouldn't take thermal videos of things we were just sitting on, leaning against, etc.
3: EVP - "It's four hours of static. You recorded four hours of static."
2: EMF Meter - "Hey! The EMF Meter is picking up all the electro-magnetic activity present in this house--as it is in every house--exactly as it's supposed to! Now let's go look for ghosts!"
1: Eyewitness Testimony - "I have an idea of what I think I saw, but it's anecdotal evidence, so I don't expect you to accept it as proof. Moreover, I know our minds can play tricks on us, so I'm looking for better evidence myself!"
Sorry to take the fun out of it, but the quicker we admit it's bullshit, the better off we'll all be. Comments, questions, want to tell me that I'm full of shit? Share your thoughts below. And remember, we're never happier than when you share us with your friends and like us on Facebook.

song is here, but the video has been pulled. It's worth listening to--it's pretty funny.)
Duffman, and even a theme park, Duff Gardens. At Duff Gardens, in addition to the various attraction (the Beeramid; the Beerquarium, etc.), you can meet additional Duff spokesmen--the Seven Duffs (Sleazy, Queasy, Edgy, Surly, Tipsy, Dizzy, and Remorseful).
We love to hear from you, so if you think we missed one, or if the order is out of whack, let us know in the comments below. And if you dig this, please like it on Facebook and share it with your friends!

So I started watching Sons if Anarchy, and I'm digging it. Anyone else watch this show? Does it drop off like Sopranos, or does it stay good?
Anyway, shoot me any ideas for top 5 lists, and please keep sharing these posts and tell your friends to like our Facebook page!

|"It may look creepy, but when I say 'free mustache rides,' the girls never turn me down."|
5: Bobcat Goldthwait - You know him from most of the Police Academy movies. He also sold cheese.
4: Jimmy Stewart - You know him from It's a Wonderful Life. He also sold Firestone tires.
3: Vincent Price - You know him as the voice from Michael Jackson's Thriller. He also sold Polaroid VHS tapes, Tilex, Time-Life books, and pitched Citibank credit cards.
2: Patrick Stewart - You know him as Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. He also sold Brain Age 2 video games and pitched rental cars from National.
1: James Earl Jones - You know him as Darth Vader's voice in Star Wars. He also pitched Bell Atlantic and other phone companies.
So Bobcat is pretty funny (check out his old stand-up. Some doesn't hold up, but it's pretty solid overall.) As for the top four, I could listen to these guys all day long. I've watched bad movies simply because they contained the voice of one of these actors. Their voices are so distinct yet so perfect in different ways.
Anyway, perhaps Morgan Freeman should be on this list. There are others I'm sure I left out as well, but someone always gets cut when you stop at 5. Let us know who you think should be in the top 5 and why in the comments below. And as always, if you enjoyed the post, consider liking us on Facebook or sharing us with your friends!

So really, Orpheus should be 1, but since none of you watch The Venture Bros., I couldn't justify it. But what do you think--who was left off the list? Anyone you care to add? Tim Curry as the Grand Wizard in The Worst Witch, perhaps? Let me know in the comments below, and don't forget to like us if you like us!

|Is this a sitcom, or an E! True Hollywood Story?|
|Run Jason! Or cover yourself with mud--so he can't detect you...|
|It's funny because he's a self-help guru, but he's a pompous dick! Get it?|
|Okay, we don't expect Eva Longoria to be funny, but Seinfeld and Tina Fey? |
I don't understand why this show sucks soooo baaaad...
|Producer: "Well if this poster doesn't make them want to watch, nothing will!" |
He was right.

5: Don't play really good shows. If something that's too good is on, it makes me want to watch instead of sleep, which means I'll have a shitty next day.
|Perfectly acceptable evening television programming.|
4: Don't intersperse crappy shows in a block of good ones. I'll put on Three's Company to fall asleep, but if I'm not out by the end and Full House comes on, I need to get the remote and find something else to watch, waking up and starting the whole sleep process over.
|As if we needed more reasons to hate this show.|
3: Sleep timers should somehow figure our when I've been asleep for 10 minutes then shut off the tv. It's bad when canned laughter from Benson wakes you up at 4 a.m. It's worse when you are on the verge of sleep but wake up because the sleep timer shuts everything off too early. Get on this, engineers.
2: Don't Test the emergency broadcast system at night. I can't believe I have to point this out, but it only pisses people off when they wake up from the super-loud *buzz, buzz, buzz* of the emergency broadcast system when it isn't an emergency.
|Too soon? Nah...|
I'm in bed as a write, and now it's time to find a good (but not great) show, roll over, and dream. Good night! (And please leave a comment below, and like us on Facebook.)

Rick Santorum (Presidential Candidate) - "I've never even supported the hoax of global warming." To be fair to Rick, he's anti-science pretty much across the board, but this statement encapsulates just how scientifically illiterate he is.
4: George Cleveland (North Carolina State Representative) - "We have no one in the state of North Carolina living in extreme poverty." Except, I guess, all the people living in extreme poverty.
|"I'm not a racist--take that back!"|
|"I took this picture to be the new meme."|
1: Joseph Maturo (East Haven, Connecticut Mayor) - "I might have tacos." The cops in his town were accused of targeting Latinos. When asked what he plans to do for the Latino community, he responded that he might have tacos when he goes home. What followed that was a several minute stumbling backtrack explanation of how tacos are good and he loves Latinos (when clearly, he is just a blubbering fool).
And here's a dumb thing that a politician did. Seriously, if you only check one of these out, watch the Maturo video--it's amazing. So I just noticed all of these are Republicans. I think Republicans are on t.v. more right now because it's Presidential primary season, so it's easier to find their crazy statements. I have no doubt that we'll have many Democrat nonsense in years to come... Remember, we're non-partisan, we're just here to bring you the stupid...

5: The waitress mistakenly brought my brother the baked potato I ordered (for myself) to my brother.
Waitress: "Do you want sour cream or bacon?"
Me: "Just sour cream."
Brother: "Hmm... Uh..."
Me: "Seriously, no bacon."
Brother: "Sour cream, and, uh..."
Eventually he sent her away without bacon and gave it to me, so all was well, but wtf?
4: Me: "There are a bunch of really good steakhouses in the City; Peter Luger's, Gallagher's, Del Frisco's..."
Brother: "Is there an Outback?"
|Everyone's favorite vegetable.|
Me: "Yeah, they're good."
Brother (suddenly angry): "What do you know about brussels sprouts!?!?"
|Sweep the leg.|
Me: "You mean the freckled ginger with the thick Irish accent? Irish."
Brother: "So she's not Jamaican?"
Next time, it's steakburgers at Burger King! So how about you--have you had any good dinner conversations lately? Share your stories below, and don't forget to like us on Facebook!
