Brendan Fraser Opens Up About The Real Reason Behind His Disappearance From Hollywood

We all remember watching Brendan Fraser in the movies he made when we were kids. It all started with Encino Man, but our obsession with his movies would only grow and grow over the next few years. It seemed like he was in every movie, playing the hunky yet funny star of all the greatest action adventures and comedies from our younger years. But suddenly, his career seemed to get a little bit out of control. The quality of the movies wasn't up to snuff. There were no more hits like George of the Jungle or The Mummy, instead we

12 Pictures Of Men’s Fashion From The '70s That Will Make You Glad Baggy Jeans Exist

I'm glad I didn't grow up in the 70s. While women's fashion back in the day wasn't the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, men's fashion was just hideous. Men wore tight booty shorts, bell-bottoms, cable-knit vests, drawstring pants, and lots of other clothes that just yelled "I'm so stylish." But hey, that's just my opinion. Take a look for yourself: 1. If Coachella existed in the '70s, I'm certain all guys would be dressed like this. As a woman, I haven't even worn shorts like that! Vintag2.

Things now are dumb and confusing and all around not cool. Do I sound like a cranky old lady when I say this? Yes. Do I care? Not even a little bit. Maybe it's because all the things we do or have now relate to being an adult, but

15 Lies You Definitely Told Your Parents As A Teenager

As I've grown up, and looked back at these lies I've told, I started to realize everyone tells the same lies to their parents. If that's the case, our parents definitely knew we were lying the whole time. It could also be that they were incredibly naive and believed we were the angels the hoped we'd be. 1. "I'm going to stay the night at my friends house."Maybe you were going to your friends house, but you definitely weren't staying there. 2. "Report cards haven't come out yet."This was a tricky one because you had to pray that

Celebrate Friday The 13th At Camp Crystal Lake By Spending The Night And (Probably) Not Dying

There's another Friday the 13th (the date, not the movie) coming up in April, so it's time to start planning how to celebrate the second spookiest day of the year. Luckily, Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco has the perfect solution.The New Jersey campground was the setting for "Camp Crystal Lake" in the original 1980 Friday the 13th.

However, the New Jersey Council of the BSA have started occasionally offering horror fans guided tours as a fundraiser for the camp. Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco

The Internet Has Been Blessed With The Trippiest Wendy's Training Videos From The 80s, And They're Gold

Oftentimes when you start a new job you have to go through a training period. This usually entails reading manuals, shadowing a colleague, or watching training videos that will help you get a good grasp of your role so you can perform your best. However, as we've all come to learn at some point in our lives, workplace training videos can be really boring.

19 Ways Life Was Completely Different Before Smartphones

Having a smartphone these days is almost a necessity. You need them for work, you need them to talk to your friends, and you really just need them for basically everything else.
