Does luring a beloved lion out of a sanctuary so you can kill him for your own amusement make you a man? Does killing any lion anywhere make you a man? Lions aren't exactly encroaching on suburban neighborhoods like yours or mine and threatening to eat our children or pets, now are they?

I remember as a child pressing my thumb to the soft-rubber up-or-down channel buttons on the remote and watching the screen jump to Cosmo Kramer bursting through Jerry's door, or Eric Matthews dancing, calling out his principle and neighbor, "Feeney! Fee-hee-hee-heenay!"

Not in a Minion Years: The Top 10 Reasons Why 'Minions' is the Worst Movie Ever Made

Feel free to call Me Despicable, but, in my opinion, Minions is easily one of the worst movies of all time. I didn't walk in wanting to hate it. I walked in wanting to love it. Which is why I'm so pissed.

Credit McQuarrie for crafting colorful antagonists, even if the plot line is not all the impressive and the dialogue is only intermittently memorable. At some point you won't care.

Party crashing--or gate-crashing, as it is sometimes called--is an art form that I stumbled upon as a teen. I taught myself how to finagle into any event, anywhere, anytime.

Words of Wisdom: What 5 Women Said About Equality

Margaret Gardiner

Feminism has become a dirty word. For many, it can alienate. For some it conjures up images of people demanding opportunities that they do not deserve. It's a complicated topic with which this generation of women struggle. Knowing they are capable, the suggestion that special treatment is required, mocks the very concept that women are trying to overcome. Judge each person on their ability.

Some comics are preceded by a big introduction, naming their successes on different media, their drawing power in person or their well known work to excite the crowd. Jim Gaffigan walks to the microphone center stage after only "Ladies and Gentlemen, Jim Gaffigan."

Motherhood is hard and rewarding. That is the truth. Enjoying the journey has everything to do with how you manage the obstacles that are in front of you and the systems that you put in place to support your life.

So Vladimir Putin checks in at the Ukraine. A guard asks his name and he gives it. Then Putin is asked "occupation?" No Putin says, "just a visit." The Capitol Steps have tons of jokes like this - some vocally and most sung beautifully in well known tunes.

We cannot build and maintain a society in which our beloved and revered celebrities' victimization of their fellow man becomes the norm. We have yet to see a conviction and it is unlikely that we ever will.

Gandalf, Merlin, or Dumbledore: Who Was the Greatest Wizard?

Quora | Posted 07.24.2015 | Books

Dumbledore is the most powerful by a country mile for the simple reason that magic has changed as the world has changed, so what might have seemed like a big deal in 600 A.D., or even 1954, does not seem like a big deal now, and J.K. Rowling wanted to "wow" her audience.
