The 6 Worst Bosses in Film History

The superiors in the 2011 comedy Horrible Bosses are awful, and the ones in the sequel may be even worse. But are they the most horrible bosses in movie history? Perhaps. With Horrible Bosses 2 opening this holiday weekend, we decided to take a look at all those big-screen employers who've asked their staffs to lie, cheat, steal, and even kill to earn their paychecks. Who are these miserable cranks? What's it like to work for them? And in the real world, could the work they demand from their employees pass muster with our National Labor Relations Board? see more

How NOT to Get Fat This Holiday Season: Advice from Health & Fitness Professionals

Mara Feil, certified nutritional consultant, board certified holistic health practitioner, standupphealth.com "Never, ever, go to a party, cocktail event, business dinner, charity event, etc. hungry. No one's willpower is strong enough to resist trays filled with temptation, and just a few mini bites adds up to the calories and sugar. Eat a substantial snack filled with protein and fiber before arriving at your event and you'll be able to stick to your diet much more easily." "Also, with so many open bars and passed cocktails during the holidays, it's hard to keep track of how many drinks you've had. Every see more

Everybody Freak Out, the New Jurassic World Trailer Just Landed

Even a hard-hearted cynic who will happily reminisce over the life-altering brilliance of the original movie can't help but be wooed a bit by Bryce Dallas Howard's ginger bob and Chris Pratt's folksy charm in the Jurassic World trailer.

New Study Finds You're All Eating Disgusting Food for Thanksgiving

The venerable Gray Lady has done a fun little study, mining Google searches for the oddball dishes that are popular in each state. The results, shown above, are, quite frankly, horrifying. Um, dear South Carolina, what the fuck is pineapple casserole? Turns out, it's cheese and pineapple chunks baked and scattered with buttered bread crumbs. I'm sorry, excuse me while I go violently upchuck for a few moments. And for those of you (myself included) tsk tsk-ing the South, take a quick gander at Oregon. Vegan mushroom gravy? Shame on you.

What You're Really Getting from the "New" Albums by Beyoncé, Eminem, and Iggy Azalea

It's present-shopping season, which means new albums are dropping thicker and faster than thundersnow. Artists that don't have an album's worth of new material aren't about to miss out on the pre-holiday marketing push, so their record companies are repackaging their existing discographies with bonus features to make us want to buy the same songs all over again.

Let's get one thing out of the way right now: There's not going to be any "one method is better 100 percent of the time" here.

That's all three dimensions, my friends. Weight machines, however, are fixed to see more
