Female Childhood` Crushes (Then And Now)

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

You remember the days: sitting in front of the TV wondering which outfit Kelly Kapowski would wear today in her efforts to draw more attention that Zach Morris’s 20-pound cell phone. Those amazingly hot teen/pre-teen/eternally teen actresses of the ’80s and ’90s paraded around in their cut-off shorts and tank tops and made it generally necessary to have a big binder handy at all times they were in view. You had their posters on your wall and in your mind, well, I don’t really want to know what was going on in there. The question now is: what happened to the hottest girls of your childhood?

Sorry to say, but some of the hottest teen actors of the ’80s and ’90s are now residents on the list of ugliest former child actors, while others find themselves on among the child stars who grew up to look like muppets. But fear not: the vast majority of actresses who were hot in your childhood are as hot (or hotter) now. This list of before and after pictures of the hottest crushes from your childhood is a side-by-side comparison of what became of all the hottest actresses from your youth.

Fair warning: some of the results are not pretty. If you fear that the fantasies of your youth are about to be spoiled by the sandy vaginas of time, you may be right. Of course, some of these actresses are still totally boner-worthy (some of them are still working and could easily rank among the hottest women of primetime) and worth an update in your mental picture file, so carry on with the greatest before and after pictures of your childhood crushes.

Top 20 Countdown Of Our Favorite One-Hit-Wonders Pt. II – The ’60s

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

one-hit wonder is any entity that achieves mainstream popularity and success for a very short period of time, often for only one piece of work, and becomes known among the general public solely for that momentary success. The term is most commonly used in regard to music performers with only one top-40 hit single that overshadows their other work but is not limited to that field, such as having only one successful album with a string of hits. Often acts dubbed “one-hit wonders” in a particular country have had great success in others.

21 Celebs Who Would Make Good Presidents

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Since all eyes are set on the political scene these days, we can’t help but imagine a parallel universe where the famous politicians of America stepped down only to be replaced by prominent celebrities. Chaos would probably ensue, but it’s an interesting thought to reflect upon. Here’s a list of 21 celebrities we think would make darn good politicians and maybe even presidents!

1. Sylvester Stallone

One of the most popular action movie hunks of all time, Sylvester Stallone entered the world of showbiz in the ’70s, showing off his incredibly muscular body and ability to act like the ultimate badass on the big screen. He rose to fame with his role in the popular film series Rambo, portraying John Rambo, a soldier of the United States army. He is also famous for his portrayal of Rocky Balboa in the Rocky film series.

Stallone is a person who understands leadership and deals with all matters in life with a firm hand and stout determination. He’s a strong Republican and even had the honor to meet Ronald Reagan in 1985. He received high praise for the inspiration Rocky Balboa provided to the US army. Straightforward, determined and disciplined, the traits every politician should master before engaging in paper wars.

2. Clint Eastwood

Just imagine Clint Eastwood in a suit, giving an impressive speech with his raspy voice, getting things done his way and leading the nation toward prosperity and blissfulness.

It really isn’t that hard to picture, especially when you take Clint’s charisma into account. Everybody’s favorite cowboy is well-known as a hard worker and somebody who doesn’t run away from a challenge.

In 1992, Eastwood acknowledged that his political views amount to something between the ideas of Milton Friedman and Noam Chomsky, adding that this kind of view would make for a worthwhile presidential ticket. He’s an educated man who’s seen a lot in life and we feel like he would definitely be able to do the right things behind a desk, given the right amount of power. Also, can you imagine him saying “Go ahead, make my day” to his political opponents? It would be the best thing ever.

3. Jon Stewart

There’s something about people who have mastered the ancient art of satire that makes us believe they would be fine leaders.

After all, if that person makes people laugh with their comedic portrayal of the current state of the country, that means that they must be doing something right. Jon Stewart has been making people laugh their butts off for 16 years by doing exactly that.

As the host of The Daily Show, Stewart was always well versed in the world’s latest events, especially those concerning the political scene. He was up-to-date with everything going on and, even though he was joking most of the time, he showed that he had a rather interesting point of view. In fact, there are thousands of Stewart’s fans that hope he will eventually move from TV to the oval office – the “Jon Stewart for President” Facebook page currently has over 17,000 likes!

1. McDonald’s originally sold hot dogs, not hamburgers.

In 1937, brothers Dick and Mac McDonald launched the Airdrome hot dog stand with a $5,000 loan. It wasn't until 1948 that they revamped their business and turned it into a burgers and milkshakes joint. (In the 1990s, the restaurant tested hot dogs at several Midwestern U.S. locations.

4. 87,000 people recently petitioned McDonald’s to add a veggie burger to their menu.

“Adding plant-based protein options at McDonald’s will appeal to workers out for a quick lunch, families with health-conscious members out to dinner, children on field trips, and anyone looking for something different than the current menu at McDonald’s where even the french fries contain beef flavoring,” reads the petition. The company currently sells veggie burgers in India, but not in the U.S.

Beware, bears—Kelly Ripa is in town.

As the LIVE co-host recalled to Seth Meyers during an appearance on Late Night Tuesday, she and her husband Mark Consuelos were on a camp trip with their three children when they came face to face with a large, furry friend…or foe.

From the moment they touched down, Ripa had a feeling they were a touch out of their element. “We took the kids camping at a place on Vancouver Island where the first thing you do is you arrive by seaplane,” she told Meyers. Because Consuelos had mentioned there would be a jacuzzi, Ripa packed two pairs of shorts, a bikini—and a ballgown. You know, just in case!

“I’m going to the wilderness in snow-capped mountains with two bikinis and a pair of shorts,” she quipped. Upon landing, the camp’s workers asked if the family had any food on them. “I am a mom of three kids. I have a seven-course dinner in my backpack,” Ripa retorted.

So, they were asked to hand all of their goodies over and were told they would get the food back upon check-out. When Ripa asked why this was the case, she was told it would prevent the bears from coming into their tent. When the star showed her surprise, the guides told her, “You’re in the Ursus Mountains. ‘Ursus’ means bears.”So when and where did they encounter this bear? Click “Next to find out.
