Rewind back to the late 1960’s, before the arrival of video games with their flashing screenings and wide range of monotone bleeps & blips and you’ll find that arcade halls were an entirely different proposition. Not a Pac-Man in sight, just literally dozens pinball machines, pop gun stands, photobooths, recording devices, games of skill and even mini bowling alleys. Most impressive of all, occasionally there was even fortune teller on hand if you were lucky! All that and more is on display in these wonderful photos from the Kansas City Wonderland Arcade , shot back in 1968. Makes you wish you could just swing by now for a couple of games doesn’t it?

W hen Wet Hot American Summer hit theaters a decade ago, the film—a sketch-based comedy set in 1981, on the last day of the fictional Camp Firewood—came and went faster than a hormonal teenage boy. But then something amazing happened: Thanks to the movie's ahead-of-its-time absurdist humor, a cast stocked with relative unknowns who blossomed into marquee names, and the magical word-of-mouth power of DVDs and Netflix, Wet Hot became a cult classic. For this complete-ish oral history in celebration of Wet Hot 's 10th anniversary, we asked director and writer David Wain, his cowriter and creative partner, Michael Showalter, and stars including Janeane Garofalo, Paul Rudd, David Hyde Pierce, Elizabeth Banks, and Amy Poehler to reminisce about the shoot, the living conditions, the kids, the notoriously horrendous weather, and the hilarity (and debauchery) that took place off-camera.

If you haven't had your big breakthrough yet, try one of these simple strategies: Toolmaker Ermal Fraze was on a picnic in 1959 when he realized he had no way to open his beverage. At the time, drinking from a can required a triangular tool called a "church key" to punch two holes in the top.

These characters are mad as hell, and they're not going to take it anymore. Quitting one’s job can make for some great drama (and comedy) in the movies. Here are some of the best moments of deciding to embrace a life of unemployment — or rather, in most cases, a life of freedom from The Man.
The Paleo Diet is an effort to eat like we used to back in the day …WAY back in the day. If a caveman couldn’t eat it, neither can you. This means anything we could hunt or find – meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds. Sorry, the pasta, cereal, and candy will have to go! Instead, you’ll be making things like chicken stir fry and paleo spaghetti . You see, I hate counting calories.
