Top 10 International Economy Airlines

Flying internationally can be a literal pain in the a** and it is something that I have to do quite often; so I have decided to make a list of the top 10 airlines to fly if you are flying economy. This list does not apply to US domestic air travel. The selections for this list are based upon seat quality, quality of extras (for example, personal TV), and service quality (staff and food). The heaviest bias in deciding positions is towards comfort, with service as a secondary. The data used in this chart is from SeatGuru. I have used only the top rating jets of each airline.

6 Movies That Were Glorified Commercials

Tivo and Digital recording technology allows us to fast forward through commercials.  Ad block plus and pop up blockers handle them on the net.  Hollywood knows whats up, and have for years.  And every once in awhile they will blatantly sell out just to show us that they can bend the entertainment world over and plunge their p**** of advertising deep into our brains.

Released May 11, 2003 The Italian Job is a movie about a gold heist. In a typical breach of criminal code, a thief steals gold from his fellow thieves. The remedy? Steal it back, of course!

Top 10 Olympic Games Firsts

With the London Olympics in 2012, the five rings are jangling wildly in excitement. Every four years since 1896, the Olympic have gone on without fail, unsnuffed like the flame of that symbolic torch. Even amidst wars, civil rights tension, and various individual tragedies, the games have championed on, continuing to showcase the fittest our countries have to offer, and the fittest countries over all.

List Of Top Ten Fastest Growing Businesses In China

Although Chinese GDP slowed in the last half of 2010, the country has maintained an average growth rate of about 10.2% since 2006, far outstripping growth in most Western economies. The fastest growing companies are listed here as the firms with the highest share price appreciation from market close on December 31, 2008 through October 20, 2010 on the Shanghai Composite Index.

Since January 1, 2009, out of the 870 components on the Shanghai Composite Index, 19 have experienced share price growth of over 500%, while 553 companies have seen share price growth above 100%. Over this period, the Shanghai Index is up 65%, while the NYSE Composite is up 29% and only one US stock, Ford Motor (+502.6%), can rival the share price appreciation of the fastest-growing Chinese companies. But even Ford would still only just barely crack the top 20.
These companies on this list must also have a current share price above $3 (USD). All prices and market caps are displayed in US dollars.

Top 10 Embarrassing Jobs

Many prominent economists are saying that just having a job in this economy is reason to be grateful. Unemployment is expected to reach 10% and the number of people living below the poverty line is the highest it’s been in years. However, there are some jobs where dumpster diving seems a better alternative. Being unemployed doesn’t evoke the same cringes as these jobs do when you're asked, “What do you do for a living?” In this economy, everyone should have an idea of the lowest job they would accept. Hopefully it’s at least a few levels above any on this list.

15 Conspiracy Theories About The Olympics

Incredible Space Pics From ISS By NASA Astronaut Wheelock

On September 22, 2010, with the departure of the Expedition 23 crew, Colonel Douglas H. Wheelock assumed command of the International Space Station and the Expedition 25 crew. He is also known as @Astro_Wheels on twitter, where he has been tweeting space photos to his followers since he arrived at the space station. We thought that we should put some of the space photos together as a tribute to him and the whole ISS crew. The space photos bring breathtaking views from our only off planet Vista point. The following space photos are all visible on Astro_Wheels’ twitpic account, and we are eternally grateful to him for sharing these space photos with the world. Many have commented directly to him but we want to make it clear Triggerpit does not have any affiliation with Astronaut Wheelock nor NASA. The confusion might have been since all the captions are all his own words as can also be seen on his twitpic account.

I Have A Question .... Or Two

Hello... I have a question!

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced  onety-one?

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea... does that mean that one out of five enjoys it?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?
