Top 10 Brutal Historic Serial Killers
 
07:37
Top 10 Brutal Historic Serial Killers Yes, of course! Insane mass murderers, serial killers and spree slayers did exist before the 1900s. You may have heard a lot about modern-day serial killers like Jeffery Dahmer, Ted Bundy and Andrei Chikatilo but surprisingly, these serial killers had much less of a chance of getting away with murder. Before the 1900s, serial killers could easily avoid being caught or found out due to lack of technology and even superstition. Many serial killers in historic times were never caught and remained active. But, what persuades some human beings to carry out horrific act's towards other human beings? Some say it is mental issues, growing up in a bad childhood or greed. Yet, others say it is distantly in our genes descending from our earliest ancestors as part of survival throughout the complete evolution process.

Top 10 Con Games Explained - Unlike most kinds of petty crime, a confidence game, or con, takes an enormous amount of skill and forethought to pull off. When done right, in many cases the grifters who perpetrate them have not actually done anything overtly illegal–they’ve simply used lies and manipulation to get their victim, or “mark,” to willingly hand over their own money. Whether blackmail, fraud, or illegal gambling, the following are ten of the most famous ways that these swindlers try to take advantage of the confidence of their unsuspecting victims. Obviously, there are a number of takes on any kind of con, but these are the most popular variations of the most well known tricks. →Subscribe for new videos every day! http://bit.ly/toptenzsubscribe →10 Reasons Bruce Lee was a Superhuman: http://bit.ly/1Hl4mVu Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Top 10 FREAKY COINCIDENCES in History!
 
10:44
Top 10 FREAKY COINCIDENCES in History! Of course, coincidences happen all the time: we were just thinking of someone when they call us on the phone, or we have this song in mind when it suddenly plays on the radio. Most of the time they don’t mean much, but every once in awhile there is a coincidence that’s outright spooky, or one that has a major impact on world events. When these coincidences are positive in nature, we call them synchronicity or even serendipity; when they are not, however, we call them catastrophes. So here is my list of the ten most astonishing, remarkable, or just plain eerie coincidences in history and how they impacted the world—or, at very least, left people wondering. 10. Two Finnish Brothers This one is strange no matter what way one looks at it. In 2002 a pair of 70-year-old identical twin brothers from Raahe, Finland were hit and killed by trucks while riding their bicycles in a snowstorm. The catch? They were killed in separate accidents on the same day along the same stretch of road only about a mile apart. Additionally, as the second accident occurred just two hours after the first, the second brother hadn’t even learned that his brother had been killed earlier (thereby eliminating suicide as a possible explanation) and making this truly one for the record books. Of course, unusual coincidences between identical twins are not unheard of; there are dozens of cases on record of twins separated at birth reuniting years later to discover they possess similar mannerisms, food preferences, work at similar jobs, etc. and, in one case, even married and divorced spouses with the same name, and then remarried another person also with the same name! So why not die the same way, on the same day, on the same road? Makes sense to me. 9. The Kennedy-Lincoln Link This one is an old story, but worth recounting because it is so unusual. It revolves around an unusual number of coincidences that occurred between Presidents Kennedy and Lincoln in regards to their assassination. For example, both men were elected 100 years apart (Lincoln in 1860, Kennedy in 1960); they were both succeeded by Southerners named Johnson, and the two Johnsons were born 100 years apart (Andrew in 1808, Lyndon in 1908). Both assassins were born 100 years apart (Booth in 1839 and Oswald in 1939) and both died before they could be brought to trial. Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin was cornered in a warehouse, while Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin was captured in a theater. Finally, Lincoln was shot in Ford’s theater, while Kennedy was shot while riding in a Ford Lincoln, and to top it all off, Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln (Evelyn Lincoln) while Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy. The list goes on from there and has been the source of considerable debate ever since. Of course, mathematicians have been quick to spoil all the fun by trying to show how all these things were bound to happen despite the long odds, which is why most people consider mathematicians poor party conversationalists.

Some of these diseases have vaccinations, some have preventive measures while others are simply deadly with little chance of survival. To be included on this list, the virus has to have been a major cause of death in history with ranking based on fatality rates and impact worldwide.

Top 10 Most Adrenaline Pumping Hiking Trails and Bridges Dangerous holes and rotten planks held aloft by tiny pieces of rusted cable stretch as far as you can see. Somewhere below you lies an immense body of water... The howling wind makes the bridge sway side to side and as you grab a railing to hold onto, you suddenly feel how the heart starts to beat faster. Unlike gephyrophobes, many daredevils seek out extreme bridges and hiking trails just for the thrill. An intense fear of heights can trigger gephyrophobia, the fear of bridges. "It is an accepted psychological diagnosis," stated Dr. Michael R. Liebowitz in an interview for Msnbc.msn.com.

While playing the “what if” game is always a dicey proposition, it’s interesting to speculate on how things might have turned out differently but for the incompetence of an assassin—not only in terms of what positives might have been lost, but what negatives might have been avoided as well.

Top 10 Widely Believed Animal Facts That Are Completely Wrong

Top 10 Widely Believed Animal Facts That Are Completely Wrong Animals have fired our imagination like nothing else. We love hearing facts about them and spreading them around, an activity that has become altogether more easy since the arrival of the Internet. The problem is, some of those so-called facts aren't really facts at all -- they are myths, misconceptions, misunderstandings ... whatever you want to call them. And since the animals themselves don't seem in a particular rush to correct us, maybe it's up to us to sort the fact from the fiction.

Top 10 Crazy / Insane Royal Family Memeber When someone is talked about as being crazy, they usually aren't the ones calling the shots. However, there have been a few notable cases of these mad men or women, all of royal blood, ruling countries, much to the chagrin of their subjects or much to the delight of their parents who act as regents. Luckily it hasn't happened all that recently -- can you imagine the posh padding required to hold an insane royal? Only the finest 1,000 count Egyptian cotton for the cell walls and a straight jacket made of the best royal purple silk and tied with gold roping. And hopefully these 10 wackos will stay in the recesses of history and not pop up again -- you know the whole history repeating itself?

Top 10 Astonishing Things You Didn't Know About Human Dissection
 
07:28
Top 10 Astonishing Things You Didn't Know About Human Dissection Having just published a book called Dissection on Display, I feel compelled to share with you a series of astounding facts I've picked up about anatomizing the human body. You are probably aware that "Gray's Anatomy" is a textbook that was painstakingly compiled by British anatomist Henry Gray, long before it was a popular television drama. You may know about the history of medical dissection (as opposed to forensic autopsy), and its dependence on execution, destitution, and exhumation for corpses on which to practice and experiment. You may even be familiar with the 200-year-old preserved dissections of anatomists Honoré Fragonard of France and Frederik Ruysch of the Netherlands. But I hope to surprise you with some of the lesser-known facts about the bloody history of exploring our internal workings: Text version: http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-astonishing-things-you-didnt-know-about-human-dissection.php Coming up: 10. Human Dissections Were Often Public Events 9. It Was Part Of Capital Punishment 8. Unwrapping Egyptian Mummies Was An Engaging Social Amusement 7. Medical Students Posed With Cadavers As A Rite Of Passage 6. Public Dissections Were Performed As Recently As Ten Years Ago 5. The Identity Of The Dissected In A Famous Painting 4.

Top 10 Celebrity Spies
 
10:24
Text List: http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-celebrity-spies.php A list of celebrities who were also spies! Who knew... When you think about spies, you think about people who can blend into any situation like a chameleon, and can go unnoticed while collecting invaluable information. What you probably don't think of is a celebrity, considering a famous face is not exactly going to drop into the background. At the same time, it kind of makes sense to enlist the services of the famous and powerful in order to take advantage of their connections, along with the desire of other powerful people to hobnob with them. With that in mind, here are some of our favorite celebrity spies.

Top 10 Reasons Deadpool Is The Ultimate Anti Super Hero — TopTenzNet
 
05:56
Top 10 Reasons Deadpool Is The Ultimate Anti Hero - With the announcement of his own feature film, now is a great time to take a good look at the character of Wade Wilson, better known as as Marvel Comics’ Deadpool. Long a cult favorite among comic fans, this odd and bizarre character is finally beginning to break into the mainstream. Operating as a mercenary, Deadpool is an extremely skilled, extremely talented, and extremely unstable danger to both others and himself. Despite the fact that he kills for a living, Deadpool frequently finds himself fighting alongside Marvel’s superheroes on the side of good, though not necessarily by choice. For those who aren’t familiar with the Merc With A Mouth, here are the top ten reasons why Deadpool is the ultimate anti-hero. He’s Just Plain Hilarious Unlike many other brooding anti-heroes, Deadpool is one of the funniest comic book characters in history. One of his nicknames is the Merc With A Mouth, and he more than lives up to that reputation. He has a vast, seemingly endless supply of witty one-liners, sarcasm and non-sequitur observations. Being almost immortal also leads to Deadpool being a reliable source of physical, slapstick comedy. Throw in a chorus of voices inside his head, a bizarre fascination with chimichangas and Bea Arthur, and an almost suicidal lust for over-the-top ultra-violence, and you have pure comedic gold. Perpetual Outsider Despite frequent team-ups with some of Marvel Comics’ most prominent heroes, Deadpool seems doomed to remain an outsider among his super-powered peers. The only teams he seems to be able to join are covert, black-ops units like the Uncanny X-Force and groups comprised of ex-villains like the Thunderbolts. It seems like no matter what he does, he just can’t get any respect from other heroes. It probably doesn’t help that … He Has a Heart of Gold Yeah, yeah. Don’t tell him we said this, but deep down Deadpool does have a heart of gold. Beneath the jokes, the pointy weapons, and the adoration of blood and guts, Deadpool is a man who actually cares about others. He may have a ton of trouble showing it, but who can blame him? He does have a brain with roughly the same consistency as mashed potatoes, after all. →Subscribe for new videos every day! http://bit.ly/toptenzsubscribe →10 Reasons Bruce Lee was a Superhuman: http://bit.ly/1Hl4mVu Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

And those overworked employees and freelancers did an incredible job of laying the groundwork for the high quality of comic books we have today. But, because of deadlines (they actually met) and not enough eyes to look at every comic, mistakes were going to be made and you have some wonderful bloopers.

A lot of the time it is by not reading, understanding or caring what their contract actually says.
