Seinfeld still makes a ton of money, even though they're all reruns!

It's been nearly two decades since “Seinfeld” brought the world laughter, smiles, and class-A entertainment while providing absolutely no storyline whatsoever.

It turns out that even in recent times, Jerry Seinfeld's show still brings the laugh—and the money. He's still one of the top ranking comedians in terms of earning.

The show's 180-episodes still brings in a lucrative $3 billion in syndication royalties!

The show was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld himself. It ran for 9 seasons, originally airing on July 5, 1989 and the final episode airing May 14, 1998.

It was critically hailed as a top comedy and a cultural phenomenon. It led the Neilson ratings in its 6th and 9th season and finished in the top two every year from 1994 to 1998.

It was even heralded as the greatest television show of all time by TV Guide in 2002.

It's no wonder that running the show again, even in this new era of reality shows and award-worthy dramas, the show still makes a ton.

Al-Qaeda's website was hacked, and what the hackers did was hilarious!

Just imagine the look of surprise on an al-Qaeda member's face when they thought they were loading a tutorial on how to "make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" but actually got a recipe for mojito cupcakes.

Famed British intelligence agency MI6 hacked 'Inspire,' the first English-language Jihadist online magazine, early last year but their cheeky content-swapping mission has only just been made public now.

As the story goes, they swapped potentially-destructive bomb-making tutorials with jumbled-up code for the Ellen DeGeneres talk show website, which contained cupcake recipes from Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio.

Recipes for delicious-sounding mojito and rocky road cupcakes contained the caveat "Warning: Sugar rush ahead!" Better watch out for those dangerous cupcakes!

Russian stray dogs have found new ways to survive--they take the subway!

Making the daily trip to and from work is one of the most despised tasks of the day.

Nobody looks forward to those crowded freeways, trains and buses, just fighting to get to the daily grind.

Well, now we aren't the only species to understand that pain—stray dogs are making the trip too in Russia.

Commuters sometimes noticed that stray dogs were amongst the other travelers on Russia's subway system. Dogs have figured out how to use the Moscow's immense subway to get around various stops to gather and hunt for food in different areas and then return home once the day is over.

Man, we all know that feeling!

The dogs go largely unnoticed since there as many as 35,000 stray dogs in Russia's capital and are found everywhere. Even if they are relatively homeless, the dogs are far from stupid and have adapted to the man-made jungle to survive and even thrive.

Maybe it's time the subway cracks down on these stray mutts and start charging them for a fare!

Coal Fired Plants Release More Uranium In 7 Days Than Chernobyl/Nuclear Power Plants in 50 Years Combined!

While Nuclear Power is Clean, Coal fired power plants are the ones that generate over half of the United States’ electricity needs.

The coal generating these plants burn over 274,000 tons of waste PER day. This includes sulfur, chromium, and uranium.

Out of that 274,000 tons, 3.3 tons of that is uranium. Annually, that is 1200 tons of uranium. That is over 51 times the amount of uranium discharged during disasters like Chernobyl combined, in the past 50 years.

This pollution is another reason why our environment is not doing so well, but there are pros and cons to using this type of energy. There are definitely links to cancer including lung cancer to the leaks of these coal powered plants, but the cost of not using them is even greater.

According to the energy-consumers-edge, not using coal or nuclear power plants would create higher costs and more deaths than the side effects of using these plants would. What do you think?

Orange Wasn't The Original Color of the Carrot, They Were Modified In The 17th Century!

Your whole life has been a lie.

Carrots were available in the colors white and purple up until Dutch farmers successfully modified them to be orange, to match the ruling of the House of Orange-Nassau and as a tribute to William of Orange.

The orange carrot was bred in the Netherlands town of Hoorn around 1721 and scholars doubt it’s existence prior to the 16th century.

The history and thousands of years of yellow, white and purple carrots were completely demolished and wiped out in a single generation. In the 18th century, this was ruled as an offensive tribute, and forced William of Orange to leave the hague.

Carrots were then called the color of ‘sedition’ and were deemed to provocative. That’s right, the media deemed a helpless vegetable as “too provocative”. No object or human is safe when the world isn’t happy!
