If you’re starting up a group, don’t fret if you find your planned symbol was already used by somebody else. You’re still free to use it; you’ll just have to tweak it slightly, so it adapts a whole new meaning that’s in tune with your group and its message.
We all remember JFK’s “Ask Not” speech, and Chuchill’s “We Shall Never Surrender” speech. But many other powerful speeches are often overlooked, probably because they were never given. They only exist on paper and in an alternate universe where circumstances allowed their author to get in front of a microphone and talk.
Some movies tease us with awesome songs from kick-ass musicals that, for some ungodly reason, don’t exist in our world. This needs to change. Someone with Broadway connections should make these fictional plays real, so we can spend gobs of money on tickets for the best seats.
Sadly, racism is still a thing in our world. For the most part however, people tend to keep their racist thoughts to themselves (or anonymously spew them all over the Internet; that works too.) Some people however, prefer to expose their bigotry very publicly, and very loudly. Spoiler alert: it never turns out well.
It’s been almost 70 years since World War II. However, the Nazi party, and their symbols, remains fresh in the minds of many as allegories of pure evil. Nazis and neo-Nazis are the easiest automatic villains left. If you see a Nazi or someone dressed as a Nazi, then you are trained to automatically assume […]
It is not the intention of anyone here at TopTenz to insult the diverse fashion sensibilities of other countries. We believe it’s up to individual nations, regions and groups of people to decide what exactly constitutes “fashion” and no one answer could ever be the “correct” one. However, that being said, you at least have […]
A lot of people treat Adolf Hitler as if he was a military genius who was only done in by his own visions of unattainable excess. This is incorrect. He was actually a complete idiot who was done in by his own visions of unattainable excess. Why? Well: 10. He Cancelled the Worlds’ First Assault […]
2011 was a banner year for video games. It saw the release of Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, and a dozen other indistinguishable shooters, all of them selling millions of copies. And then there were these games. Their sales ranged from “okay” to “embarrassing,” but each took creative risks that paid off. For that, they […]
While unfortunate, it cannot be denied that warfare has had a major role in shaping our world. It has defined our history, created and destroyed entire nations, and repeatedly altered society in both major and subtle ways for thousands of years. While history is replete with battles both large and small, there are a few […]
Before people were able to access information by way of the Internet, written text was the primary resource for knowledge. The history of books has been linked to political and economical contingencies, as well as the history of ideas and religion. In the ancient world, humans developed writings as a desire to create a lasting […]
France is the home of fine wine, great cheese and Gallic humor where a restaurant chef is as likely to chase you out of a restaurant for asking for ketchup as he is to feed you cordon bleu cuisine. Notoriously fickle, with a language that has a sexy accent but sounds like someone is speaking […]
Sometimes words can be more powerful than actions and when spoken by great orators, they inspire us to greatness and connect us to the world around us. These are the greatest speeches ever spoken; a collection of messages from some of the greatest and most notable orators in history. 10. Socrates “Apology” The Day: 399 […]
The first of April is widely recognized and celebrated as All Fools’ Day. The master of irony, Mark Twain, once said that “April 1. is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four”. Believe it or not, some of the biggest companies and governments get […]
The dictionary defines propaganda as the deliberate spreading of information, ideas, or rumors in an effort to either help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, or nation. Most commonly propaganda is used in the political arena. However, it can take used to convince others to embrace a particular scientific, environmental, religious or even moral […]
The world is full of unique objects, creatures, and world events. Many foods are naturally radioactive and bananas contain a particularly high dose of radiation. The banana equivalent dose is a scale used to measure radiation exposure. The scale is based on the radiation levels humans receive by eating a single banana. In fact, bananas […]
