Get ready to take a walk down memory lane looking with¬†these pictures that will remind you of the times when you were young and restless as well.

This might be a difficult one, but can you guess who that is? Three times Golden Globe Award winner and two times Academy award winner, George Clooney was no stranger to unflattering haircuts or glasses. But he looks like an optimistic kid. Maybe he knew what was in store for him. He became widely successful with “Ocean’s Eleven” and then his career just took off.

Yes, Johnny Depp rocked the bad boy attitude straight out of high school. The 52 year old actor, producer and musician was first introduced to the American audiences through the TV show “21 Jump Street”, which transformed him into a teen idol overnight. “Edward Scissorhands” quickly established him as a pretty boy and from there on he got bigger roles and fatter pay checks.

Any idea who this kid playing¬†a video game in his room is? Here’s a hint: the poster on his wall is actually a film he starred in, besides “The Dark Knight’ and “The Machinist”, of course. If you guessed Christian Bale, you’re right. The English actor first received great critical acclaim for his role in “American Psycho”. Since then he’s appeared both in blockbusters and smaller, independent films.

Best known for her roles in “Fight Club”, “The King’s speech” and all the other Tim Burton movies, Helena Bonham Carter is a¬†two time Academy Award nominee.

5 Comics’ Moments The Walking Dead Won’t Use

If you’ve ever watched “The Walking Dead” you know they’re not shy with the amounts of blood they use. And if you’re never watched the show, here’s how it goes: there’s a¬†scene that involves someone being eaten alive every five minutes. And as scary and gory as¬†that sounds, it’s pretty addictive.¬†After I discovered “The Walking Dead”, I went through the first three seasons in a week, barely leaving the house. I was so hooked on the whole post apocalyptic zombie world, I would then startle on my way to the grocery shop when a twig would snap and I kept looking over my shoulder to check for walkers. But how much is too much for this TV series? They seem to enjoy killing off all their characters, so we can’t help but expect another Red Wedding. We took a look at the comic books and shook our heads at some scenes. Read about the gory 5¬†comics’ moments the Walking Dead won’t use. Hopefully.

5. The Unique Way Out

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

Carol is probably the character who has grown the most from the beginning of the show. If we were introduced to her when she was a victim of domestic violence, we witnessed how¬†her skin grew thicker when she lost her girl. She became a fierce fighter who never hesitates to kill. But the comic books tell the story of a different Carol. She’s much younger and yearns to be accepted and loved. When she is rejected, she kills herself by allowing a tied up zombie to eat her alive. Phew! We’re all glad Carol’s still on the show and we hope she won’t willingly hug any walkers too soon.

4. A Jamie Lannister Touch

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

In the comic books, the whole Governor situations plays out differently. He is still the bad guy and Rick is still the badass hero. But the Governor is crueler than his TV equivalent and cuts off Rick’s hand, in an attempt to make him understand neither him or anyone else is safe in the big wild world. On the other hand¬†on the TV series, Rick is safe and sound and can still do up his laces in a few seconds. Did “The Walking Dead” producers get cold feet about maiming the main character? Still, even if they didn’t pull a George R. R. Martin until now, it doesn’t mean it’s never going to happen. As much as we all like seeing Rick intact, he might get bitten by a walker and he has a handful¬†of enemies who would like to teach him some manners and chop off his arm.

3. A Different Kind of Boyhood

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

Has anyone else noticed how good Carl Grimes is getting on screen? Thankfully, he overcame his teenage, moody phase and is now on his path to manhood. He has some amazing zombie killing skills and he’s not whining that much anymore. Can we start cheering for even more character development? Listen to this: in the comic books, after Alexandria is attacked by a humongous herd of walker, Carl is shot in the head and loses a big chunk of his face. Would the directors venture to put this in the show? Only time will tell.

2.  Playing Baseball with Glenn

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

In the comics the wickedest villain is The Saviors’ leader who wields a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. That sounds pretty Mephistophelic. And there’s more! He uses his custom made weapon to kill Glenn, a much loved character whom we all¬†cheer foor whenever he fights with someone. Will this be Glenn’s fate on screen as well? Or can we expect “The Walking Dead” to subvert our expectations and kill Maggie instead? Either way, I’m already getting sad.

1. Hush, little baby, don’t you cry

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

We all regretted Lori’s death after giving birth to Judith, leaving Carl an orphan and Rick a widower. In fact, we should all be happy we didn’t get to see what¬†the comic books¬†did with the whole scene. In the comics, the Governor wins the battle at Woodbury and everyone is running in all directions. Including Lori, tightly holding her new born in her arms. But when the mother is shot from behind, she falls forward and dies on the spot, smothering her baby girl underneath her. We can see why the producers didn’t insist on putting that in the show, giving Judith a chance at life, even though the zombie world in which she was born is ruthless.

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

Let’s face it. We all fall asleep thinking about that one super power we’d love to have. Whether it’s flying over skyscrapers, turning invisible, reading other people’s minds or getting microscopically small, there are as many superpowers as there are people. As to superheros, we already know everything there is to know about their superpowers. We have the comic books and the blockbuster movies to fuel our imagination engines and even categorize them into “cool” and “not so cool”. On that note, let’s take a look at seven best super powers of heroes we got to witness on screen. And then in our imaginations.

7. The Ant Man

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

The Ant Man has the ability to shrink in size and increase in strength. As crazy as this sounds, it’s a pretty cool super power to have. It comes in handy when dealing with bad guys and enemies and you can also use it when the grocery shop has just closed and you really need a Twix.

6. Wolverine

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

Despite recent movies, the Wolverine is a badass. He can heal himself and he has retractable blades. Don’t deny it, he’s the king of cool heroes. On top of everything, he has superhuman senses which places him high about others. We’d say Wolverine has got it pretty good, although in some movies we get the feeling he’s slowly drowning in self pity over being immortal.

5. Gambit from X-Men Origins

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

Another cool ability is taking an inanimate object and converting it into hot kinetic energy. I can already see how this power can be used to kill bad guys by the dozens. On top of this, he also possesses a kinetic charm ability which enables him to coerce people and make them agree with whatever he wants.

4. Storm from X-Men: The Last Stand

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

Who wouldn’t want to be able to manipulate the weather? Feeling too hot? Lift a finger and you’ve got yourself a nice refreshing shower. Too cold? Murmur some words and the Sun will come visit. You go, Storm!

3. Professor X

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

He doesn’t even need a description, does he? I’m pretty sure even Wolverine is a bit jealous of him. And why wouldn’t he be? Professor X has incredible telepathic mutant abilities that we all crave, not only Marvel’s super heroes. Although he could once cover the entire world with his telepathic abilities, because of Magneto, Xavier’s power has been restricted to a¬†radius of approximately four hundred kilometers. Which is still four hundred kilometers more than any other human can cover.

2. Nightcrawler from X2: X-men United

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

He is incredibly agile, can teleport and has adhesive hands and feet. Thanks to his indigo skin, he can become nearly invisible in shadows, blending in the darkness. As a nice touch to his teleporting ability is his “space awareness ability”. This translates into the fact that he’ll never teleport into a solid object. Did we mention his tail? Not only is it strong enough to pick up a man from the ground, it can also wield a sword and serve as a third hand for Nightcrawler.

1. The Man of Steel

Seven Best Super Powers Of Heroes

He’s not called Superman for nothing. He can do so many things at once and still have an impeccable coiffure at all times. Share the tips and tricks, Man of Steel! All joking aside, let’s make a quick recap of what Superman can do. He can fly, which means his girlfriend can get croissants for breakfast on the Seine, go back home for lunch and make-up touch ups and then go for paella in Barcelona. Superman is also invulnerable (but he can totally talk openly about his feelings), he is freakishly strong and¬†can emit solar energy from his eyes. I rest my case.

Five Most Graphic Deaths on TV

We’ve grown to enjoy violence on TV. Especially since¬†it keeps coming and shows no signs of stopping. We see it on the news, occasionally on commercials, it’s definitely in movies and most likely in TV shows. It even started to worm its way into cartoons, so you better keep an eye out on Nickelodeon next time your kid tunes it. For adults who enjoy the occasional gruesome scene consisting of a highly anticipated¬†fight and ending in someone’s demise, we’ve compiled a list of five most graphic deaths on TV. No need to welcome us.

5. Oberyn from Game of Thrones

Five Most Graphic Deaths on TV

As a side note, yes, we could’ve compiled a list of the most graphic deaths only from¬†Game of Thrones. But it would’ve been way¬†too long. Oberyn’s was, by far, the most gruesome of them all. When he confronted The Mountain he wasn’t expecting to get his skull smashed in. But he did, while thousands of viewers sat on the edge of their sofas/ chairs/ armchairs/ beds, murmuring “no no no”. The fight between the Red Viper and Ser Gregor Clegane was as intense and epic as it was gory.

4. Warren Mears from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Five Most Graphic Deaths on TV

If you didn’t like Warren Mears on¬†Buffy the Vampire Slayer then you might’ve been cheering during his torture and death scene. Or just smiled silently? Maybe grinned secretly? On the inside? However you chose to externalize your joy, here’s a recap on what happened to Mears. His mouth was sewn before he was flayed alive. And since this wasn’t spectacular enough, he was then set on fire. After all this, Warren was resurrected (albeit in the weirdest form possible). He was killed once more in the eighth season of the comic book, never to be revived again.

3. Rita from Dexter

Five Most Graphic Deaths on TV

We were all a bit sad to see sweet Rita go. And it wasn’t the gruesomest scene of the bunch. We’ll admit we didn’t see it coming. But the twisted element was how it replicated Dexter’s trauma, speaking volumes about the killers’ presumable hours of premeditation. How did the scene look, exactly? Dexter receives a loving text message from her before hearing his son crying in the bathroom. Dexter finds him in a pool of blood, next to the tub in which Rita lies dead in even more blood. With this much blood involved, it’s no wonder the episode got director Steve Shill an Emmy award.

2. Noah from The Walking Dead

Five Most Graphic Deaths on TV

We’re used to the gory close ups in¬†The Walking Dead¬†and we’ve watched some well loved characters being consumed by zombies. And yet it always gets to us, even when it’s not a major character who get pecked at. This was Noah’s case. Relatively a new addition on the show, we all thought he’d survive longer. And if it hadn’t been for someone’s cowardice, he might’ve. Getting caught behind the glass of a revolving door, Noah stood¬†no chance in front of the pack of famished walkers. The camera¬†moved from Noah being eaten alive to Glenn’s horrified face as he watched helplessly.

1. Gus Fring from Breaking Bad

Five Most Graphic Deaths on TV

We knew Gus had it coming, but now one saw IT coming. Fring’s death might’ve been predictable, but it¬†suited his life and character: it was grand and sly. Tio Salamanca was willing to go down with his worst enemy so he got some help to make his biggest dream come true. Little did Fring know that he would lose half his face in an explosion triggered by a crippled old man. The episode entitled “Face Off” presents the criminal mastermind as never seen before: he is frightened when he suspects the trap, but doesn’t have time to utter a single word. After the explosion he puts on¬†his composed (half) face, without realizing he’s adjusting his tie in vain. He briefly survives the explosion and manages to take a few steps only to collapse dead a few seconds later.

As a society that is deeply concerned with fictional characters, book conspiracies and other silly questions, we find our minds wondering (more than often) about the whys, the whos, the whats and the whens.

5. What is the value of Princess Peach’s castle?

5 Attempts To Answer Unanswerable Questions

A real estate group, Movoto, took on the daunting task of estimating how much the castle in Super Mario 64 is worth. He tried to find out the actual size of the castle by taking the double door entrance as a reference point. Since the door is approximately 72 inches long, they ended up with a total number of 453,060 square feet. Next up Movoto had to pinpoint the location of the Super Mario castle in real life so they can get an estimate on the square foot price. Deciding on Oslo as the place that suited all their criteria, they summed everything up and ended with a total value of $950,972,940.

4. When Was Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?

5 Attempts To Answer Unanswerable Questions

Remember the 1986 comedy about the student who takes a day off to spend it having fun in Chicago with his girlfriend and best friend? The uncomplicated plot follows Bueller around as he goes to a Cubs game, visits the Sears Tower and the Art Museum. Larry Granillo was puzzled how Ferris could have pulled this off, since the game he watched probably took place on June 5th, 1985, most likely after 4 pm. Which would leave him and his friends with a little under 2 hours for sightseeing and crashing a parade.

3. What Does Bob Ross Like To Paint?

5 Attempts To Answer Unanswerable Questions

‚ÄúThe Joy of painting‚ÄĚ aired between 1983 ad 1994 and it was an intructional TV show in which Bob Ross taught his audience how to paint, finishing a painting in each episode.

The shocking discoveries speak volumes about Ross’ ability to paint people. Out of 381 paintings only one contains the silhouette of a man. The rest are landscapes with clouds, mountains and trees that appear 91% of the times in his artworks.

1. What’s up with ‚ÄúGame of Thrones‚ÄĚ seasons?

5 Attempts To Answer Unanswerable Questions

Someone should tell Fergie that boys don’t come and go like seasons any more. Because winter has been coming in Game of Thrones for the last five years. And while we’re still waiting for the long night to come over Westeros, why not try to figure out how the seasons work. One of the hypothesis states that the queer length of the seasons can be accounted by the planet’s solar system which should include three major stars orbiting around each other. This could cause the irregular seasons that can either last two years or a decade. According to another theory, the planet inhabited by dragons, warlocks and children of the forest might as well be an exomoon that orbits a gas giant.
