14 clever ways to open a beer bottle in a pinch

Cheers, to 80 years of crushing beer cans on your head — Beer is so much more than the sweet, hoppy nectar of the gods. It's a social activity, the contents of a DIY project or a base for a delicious recipe. Though the beverage itself is one of the oldest drinks humans have produced, the canned version as you know it hasn't even been around for a century.

14 pies you'll want to smash your face into — Happy National Pie Day - or as most of us like to call it, Friday. While cakes and ice cream may be the more popular birthday favorite, the joke's on them, because that means every other day is a good occasion for pie. Savory, fruity, chocolatey pie.

In memoriam of SkyMall products: A lost national treasure — Say it isn't so. SkyMall, the in-flight catalogue known for its bizarre array of inventive gadgets and unusual products, is declaring bankruptcy. While the owners hope to sell the magazine and find it a new home, there's a chance that the quirky SkyMall we grew up with will never be the same.

Obama just summed up America's problems with a Dr. Seuss book — Barack Obama traded in his chair in the Oval Office for a tiny plastic seat in a classroom full of preschoolers. POTUS visited the Community Children's Center on Thursday in Lawrence, Kansas, to speak to 3-5 year-olds enrolled in an early education program.

The 2015 Puppy Bowl lineup is here to inflate your spirits — Let's be real, most of us weren't watching the Super Bowl for the football anyway. Before the big Sunday night sports fest, dozens of pups will tackle each other for the pre-game Puppy Bowl shows - and because they're puppies, and that's what they do.

16 animals that lasted longer at the gym than you — It's not even a month into the new year, and you're already slipping on those resolutions to go to the gym at least five times a week. There's just not enough time and energy in a day - unless you're a freeloading pet. These animals don't want to hear your sissy excuses.

21 one-star reviews for 'Game of Thrones' — A book needs stars as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. George R.R. Martin doesn't have a problem getting people to talk about the Song of Ice and Fire books, but that doesn't mean everyone is a fan.

The many looks of each 'Friends' character over 10 seasons — If you haven't already started and/or finished the Friends binge-watch now that every season is available Netflix, the post-holiday slump lends a good reason to start. It's easy to lose track of time when glued to your couch for days on end, so perhaps you missed the subtle (and not so subtle) ways the characters have changed their looks over the years.

20 parents having a little too much fun with Elf on the Shelf — With less than two weeks until Christmas, most of us are scrambling to finish shopping for loved ones. The holidays are a particularly magical time for young children, and it takes a hundred elves' worth of energy and cheer to make it so. It's hard enough to stealthily wrap all the presents with sneaky little ones around.
