Top 10 UNDERHANDED Moves by Corporations

Everyone knows corporations are evil, not to be trusted, and are completely willing to kill on a whim, but we don’t expect them to be so brazen about it. We want their decisions, especially the ones where they show they don’t care about their customers or the law, to be made behind closed doors, not in public view so we can make a list about them. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/toptenz →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Top 10 HORRIFYING Facts About AZTEC WARRIORS
 
10:35
The Aztec Empire started sometime around the mid-1350s in what is now Mexico. It was a three city-state which, at its height, had a population of 5 million people. Its capital city, Tenochtitlan (which is today Mexico City), had a population of 200,000. Their culture was complex and rich, with a strong economic system. They created the 365 day agriculture calendar. The Aztecs also had a fierce army that helped feed their bloodthirsty culture. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/toptenz →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Just to name a few, they have to be the right distance from a star, they have to be big enough to have a molten center, and the planet needs to have rock. These exoplanets, which are planets outside of our solar system, may not only support life other than our own, but we could also consider these as oases in the universe in case we are ever forced to leave Earth. As of right now, obviously there is no way we can travel to these planets because they are light years away and to travel just one light year would take us 80,000 years with current technology.

Top 10 Most Disturbing Photographs Ever — TopTenzNet
 
10:29
The clichéd saying that a picture is worth a thousand words couldn’t be truer about these pictures. They capture shocking and disturbing moments in human history and since they’ve found their way to the digital age, they will probably be around until people don’t use the internet anymore. They are stark reminders of the vulnerability of life and the depth of human tragedy. →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!

The Ghost of Mary Lee The Waverly Hills Sanatorium, located in Louisville, Kentucky, was opened in 1910. Originally, it was only supposed to house 40 to 50 patients suffering from tuberculosis, but then the United States was hit with a TB pandemic that was spreading across the world and the hospital was expanded to house more patients. With so many patients suffering from the fatal disease, a lot of people never left the hospital alive. Between 1924 and 1961, approximately 6,000 people died in the sanatorium. One of the more interesting aspects of the sanatorium is the “body chute.” It is a 485 foot long tunnel that is on a 45 degree angle and once someone died, their body was put down the chute. The sanatorium was shut down in 1961 after the cure for TB was found, and it has been abandoned ever since. In 2005, a paranormal researcher was visiting the abandoned buildings and snapped this picture. On the right hand side of the picture in the hallway, there appears to be the ghost of a young girl. The researcher believes that it is the spirit of a nurse named Mary Lee, who is pictured on the left. According to the story, Mary Lee had a relationship with one of the doctors and she found herself pregnant. She was unwed, and out of shame, she hanged herself in room 502. Unfortunately, her body wasn’t found for some time. Also, according to the story, another nurse leapt to her death from room 502, but she was not identified. 9. Columbine Senior Class Picture At first glance, this looks like a typical class picture from the late 1990s. What is actually so eerie about this large group of smiling students is that this is the 1999 senior class photo from Columbine High School. This was the second of two photos taken of the students. The first one was just a normal picture, and for the second picture they were allowed to act a bit more silly and wild. If you look to the top left hand corner (or the insert picture above), you’ll see 17-year-old Dylan Klebold and 17-year-old Eric Harris, along with their friend, Brooks Brown, and they are pretending to aim guns at the camera. This photo was taken in the spring of 1999, just weeks before the April 20th mass murder. 8. The Grand Canyon Reaper 7. Starvation in the Sudan 6. Dean Corll’s Unknown Victim 5.

Top 10 Manliest Quotes from the SPARTANS
 
08:26
Laconic humor was the term invented specifically to describe the dry, biting wit of the Spartan people. We personally think it’s a little unfair that pop culture has mainly portrayed the Spartans as a bunch of ass-kicking, throat-ripping slabs of beef. Though that description is entirely correct, it ignores the fact that the Spartan’s were also masters of verbal combat along with the regular, sweaty kind. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/toptenz →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Top 10 Archaeological DISCOVERIES We STILL Don’t Understand

When it comes to defining the world around us, we humans tend to think we’ve figured it all (well, most of it) out. Since the Enlightenment, the Scientific Method has reigned supreme in our quest for knowledge. Despite humanity’s social problems (murder rate and poverty anyone?), 21st century people think they’ve got the universe’s mysteries locked in pretty well. Technology! Math!

Top 10 Irish Myths and Legends — TopTenzNet
 
06:45
Ireland’s long history is riddled with ancient mythology and folklore. Ireland’s ancient societies, the Druids and the Celtics, believed in the power of magic and many of these beliefs spread to modern day legends told again and again across the country. Stories of warriors with all the knowledge of the world, fairies playing pranks on farm owners and leprechauns hiding their gold at the end of a rainbow add to the mysterious appeal of Ireland. 10. The Banshee The Banshee was a woman who carried with her an omen of death. Sometimes you saw the Banshee as an old woman dressed in rags, sometimes you saw her as a young and beautiful girl and sometimes you saw her as a wash woman, ringing out bloody clothing . Whenever she was seen, she let out a horrible cry and legend has it this cry brought death to any family that heard it. King James I of Scotland thought he was approached by a Banshee. Shortly after, he died at the Earl of Atholl. 9. Pookas The Pookas are a certain type of fairy- one bent on creating havoc in the mortal world. The Pooka appeared at night across rural Ireland and the seaboard. On a good day, the Pooka would cause destruction on a farm- tearing down fences and disrupting the animals. On a bad day, the Pooka would stand outside the farmhouse and call the people outside by name. If anyone came out, the Pooka would carry them away. The Pookas also loved to mess with the ships pulling away from Ireland, and were blamed for many shipwrecks along the rocky coast. 8. Changelings As legend has it, female fairies often give birth to deformed children. Since the fairies prefer visually pleasing babies, they would go into the mortal world and swap with a healthy human baby, leaving behind a changeling. While the changeling looked like a human baby, it carried none of the same emotional characteristics. The changeling was only happy when misfortune or grief happened in the house. The changeling legend has lasted for centuries. William Shakespeare talks of a changeling in his play, “A Midsummer’s Night Dream.” Three hundred years later, Scarlett O’Hara believed Rhett Butler’s illegitimate child was a changeling in “Gone with the Wind.” →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!

In older times, the word gang didn’t have such the negative tone that comes along with it today. As time has gone on, the word gang has grown to be a word that many worry about when they hear it.

Top 10 INCREDIBLE Stunts (That Went Horribly Wrong)

The reason stunts are so exciting is because there’s always the possibility of something going horribly wrong. Most spectators are hoping the person completes the stunt, but there is always a small part of us (which we don’t like to admit exists) that’s morbidly curious about witnessing disaster. It’s the same reason we all slow down to look at a car wreck.

There’s a good reason the sight of a Viking longship struck fear in the hearts of coastal villagers: the Vikings were bad news for everyone.

This is especially true with history, which seems to be a breeding ground for all sorts of misconceptions, half truths, and outright lies that have become enshrined in the national mythos as historical facts. Fortunately, most such bits of misinformation are largely harmless and, in a way, can even be beneficial if they create in us a desire to delve more deeply into the past to ascertain the truth, thus becoming a teaching tool. Below are just a few of the more commonly held erroneous pieces of history that most people are familiar with.

Under Kim Jong Un, the Communist throwback has scaled new heights of insanity that are somewhere between hilarious and terrifying. On the hilarious side, there’s stuff like Kim ordering every government vehicle, no matter how small, to be fitted with a toilet in case he needs a poop while driving. On the terrifying side, there’s stuff like the army detonating a hydrogen bomb and saying they plan to nuke the mainland United States. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/toptenz →10 Reasons Bruce Lee was a Superhuman: http://bit.ly/1Hl4mVu Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

Top 10 TREASURES Lost In The MISTS Of Time

Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest, yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! The X marks the spot, so get your shovel ready and start digging. Money, gold and jewelry stashed away on some mysterious island usually means trouble. From the mists of time, when mythical gods and legendary heroes roamed the Earth, though the Middle Ages and even the last couple of centuries, we have records of great treasures that seem to have vanished, leaving behind only pies in the sky. Fascinating examples of opulence and decadence, the world knelt to their power and wept at their disappearance. They witnessed the rise and fall of civilizations, and now they are gone.

Top 10 HORRIFYING Mental ASYLUMS in the United States
 
10:36
Despite their original benevolent intent, mental asylums have become synonymous with abuse and malpractice. For one, the practice of lobotomy originates in the world of psychotherapy and institutionalization. Egas Moniz performed the first lobotomy in Portugal in 1935 and it was soon after adapted by American physicians Walter Freeman and James W. Watts, who popularized the operation. From 1949 to 1951, the amount of lobotomies grew from 5,074 to 18,608 people. John F. Kennedy’s sister is one of the many who were victims of the controversial procedure. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://www.toptenz.net/toptenz-t-shirts →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

For every liberal decrying the paltry money begrudgingly dripped into the welfare state, there’s a libertarian begging for it to be reduced further. For every spectacularly wasteful government project, there’s some piece of essential infrastructure that benefits millions. Getting it right is tricky. Or, as in the cases below, you could simply not even try. These projects were so pointless and so wasteful, it feels like their only real purpose was to shove a gigantic middle finger into the face of the taxpayer.

Their status as a non-profit isn’t solely based on the intricacies of our tax system, but the result of the positive work they do in American communities and around the world. However, some organizations have used their status as a non-profit to procure not only favorable tax standing but to also secure massive profits for executives and board members of the organization. Many non-profits do very little to benefit their respective causes while using raised funds for unscrupulous purposes.

Top 10 INSANE Nazi Superweapons — TopTenzNet
 
13:46
Top 10 Terrifying Nazi Super Weapons For World Domination World War II started off with the Nazis pretty much wanting to control the whole world. Twenty years after the previous World War, Europe was still in a period of recuperation and Germany was one of the countries worst off in the aftermath. In an astonishingly short period of time, they were able to rebuild their war ravaged country, consolidate the army –even though they weren’t allowed to- and begin down a path, in their minds, thought to bring them justice. Besides this, Hitler also had in mind to transform Germany into a self-sustaining empire, by displacing the peoples from what is now present-day Ukraine and take those fertile lands for his own. To do this, the Nazis resorted to a systematic and ruthless way of fighting, which in the first half of the war brought them one victory after another. This came to be known as the Blitzkrieg (Lighting War). They also made use of some state of the art technologies and war machines, the Allies were no match to. Here are ten of those “superweapons”, as well as some which fortunately remained only on the drawing board and were never deployed on the battlefield. 10. The Panther Tank Zentralbild, II. Weltkrieg 19139-45 Der von der faschistischen deutschen Wehrmacht während des Krieges entwickelte neue Panzerkampfwagen Typ "Panther". UBz: die Verladung neuer "Panther"-Panzerkampfwagen zum Transport an die Front (1943). To start off this list, we must first talk about the Nazi Panther tank. What makes this war machine stand out of all the other tanks of WWII is a combination of firepower, armor, maneuverability and speed. Originally intended to be used as a counter to the T-34 Soviet tank, the Panther was introduced on the battlefield in 1943 and was in use up until the end of the war. Initially it was to replace the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks, but ended up fighting alongside them throughout the duration of the war. Nevertheless, the Panther soon enough became one of the most feared machines on the ground. Thanks to its sloped armor, the Panther got both extra protection, all the while limiting its total weight, as well as not sacrificing speed and maneuverability in doing so. This design was made standard on both sides, during and after the war. What made it stand out most of all was its rage. Firing a 75 mm cannon, the Panther was able to take out pretty much any Allied tank from long distances and not having to worry about retaliating fire. Other, larger Nazi tanks were built and deployed during WWII; tanks like the Tiger I and II, and even though they were more heavily armored and with better firepower, these tanks used huge amounts of fuel, which limited them greatly. Many believe that the Panther had the best tank design of WWII and directly competed with the Soviet T-34 which, even though lacked many technical advantages, it more than made up through its simple design, easy drivability and huge numbers of it being built by the Soviets. 9. The V3 Cannon The Vergeltungswaffe 3 Cannon (a.k.a. “England Cannon”) or more commonly known as the V3, this Nazi “vengeance weapon” was intended to fire huge projectiles at immense distances across the English Chanel, from France to London. Built directly into a hill, the V3 operated by a multi-charge principle where secondary charges were detonated inside the long barrel, in order to propel the artillery shell even further. Initial trials of the V3 took place in May 1944 when the cannon achieved a range of 55 miles (88 kms.) and again in July with 58 miles (93 kms.). Two of these cannons were built and only one of them saw any action during the war. From January 11th 1945 until the 22nd, a total of 183 rounds had been fired on the recently liberated city of Luxembourg. It nevertheless proved mostly ineffective as out of the total 142 projectiles that detonated, only 10 people fell victim to it and injuring another 35. →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!
