The world of "Supernatural" is a world filled with monsters and mayhem and crazy fans. If you are looking for a rollercoaster ride then you have found your destination because this show is so raw that it can make you laugh, but in the next moment make you cry. With goofball actors, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki playing the leads it certainly takes you for a ride. This show never fails to keep you on the edge of your seat and always has some heart wrenching element just to make it hurt that much more. I love this show more than any others that I watch, and trust me that’s a long list, thank god for the DVR. So here are my top ten reasons to watch and fall in love with this show just as I have:

1. Good Looking Actors

We will start with the obvious. The lead actors are gorgeous. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are the epitome of tall and ruggedly handsome. Jensen Ackles is six foot one, toned, and has the most gorgeous green eyes you can imagine. Then you have Jared Padalecki who is six foot four, toned, as well, with beautiful hazel eyes. Oh but, we can’t forget the infamous Padalecki hair. Having these two to stare at certainly helps keep you interested in the show.

2. Great Acting

While, yes, these two are very nice to look at, they are also very talented actors. "Supernatural" is full of drama so it has scenes ranging anywhere from laughing on the ground funny to crying your eyes out on the bathroom floor. The individuals who play these roles do so with such passion they make it real for the viewer. When they can strike emotions in you, which this show does to me all the time, they are doing their job right. Despite knowing Dean didn’t really go to hell, the scene where he pours his heart out to Sam was one of the most heartbreaking scenes in the series and had me wanting to give Dean a hug and Jensen an Emmy.

3. The Life Lessons

The show, although complete fiction, teaches us as viewers a lot about life. One major theme in the show is family. The one big lesson they stress is “family don’t end in blood”, which I will come back to. They also teach you to enjoy the little things as they can help you through the day. Sam and Dean have been through their fair share of hard times, but things like pie, whiskey (ok, not the best example), the Impala, even something as simple as reading can helped them see the positive and just get through the day.

4. The Support Network

Since this show is very popular, it has a large following. I have found that I share a lot of commonalities with complete strangers that I met purely through the show. The fans of this show really care and show support for their fellow fans. The few people I have met through watching the show have helped me through some pretty difficult times and have been there for me since. It feels good to know that a complete stranger cares that you are still kicking.

5. The Supportive Actors

Not only are the fans supportive of the show and each other, but they actors of the show are also supportive of their fans. They give us gratitude for helping them become what they are and try to give back as much as they can. Jensen, Jared, and Misha all run charities that serve to help us in life with depression, shyness, or even to help you just get by. They created acts like Always Keep Fighting, You Are Never Alone, and Random Acts to help us deal with issues they themselves had troubles with.

6. The Actors Give Up A Lot

To make this show as wonderful as it is, it takes a lot of work, which sometimes costs the actors. For starters, the show films in Vancouver, Canada while both the main actors live in Austin, Texas. This means a lot of travel for them which I’m sure some of you know how exhausting that can be. Also, this means a lot of time away from their families. Both men have wives and three children that they don’t get see as much as they would like. You may think ‘Well they have hiatus to go home.’ While this is true, they both go to conventions all over the world. They do that for us, so we can meet them, talk to them, and get photos with them. They don’t have to do it, but they take time away from their family because they love their fans and want to do this for them.

7. Kick Butt Action

This show is heavy in the action, which makes sense since they have to fight monsters and such. However, the action is phenomenal and Jensen and Jared try to do as many of the stunts themselves as they can, which shows dedication. They practice these choreographed fights so much so that on screen they look great. Their punches look real, when they get thrown to the ground or into a tree it looks real, and it’s very well put together.

8. Family

Told you I’d come back to this. Family is basically the central theme of the show as it surrounds the relationship between Sam and Dean. This show shows you that you can create your own family and that they don’t need to be blood. This is shown with the boys with Bobby, Ellen, Joe, Jody, Claire, Alex, Charlie, and even everyone’s favorite angel, good old Castiel. They didn’t have relatives growing up so as they got older they surrounded themselves with people they cared about and who cared about them. The family scenes in this show are actually my favorite. Anytime there is a brotherly moment, or Jody being like a mom to the boys, or when Bobby was being a dad to them, those were the best in my opinion.

9. The Music

Ahhhh…. Good old classic rock. Who doesn’t like some rock-n-roll? That is the entire soundtrack to the series. It ranges from The Beatles to Led Zeppelin. They bring in some classics that everyone should know and then plays some that they make everyone know, like the song that has become their theme song, "Carry on My Wayward Son" by Kansas. Now, this music came out a little before my time, but since that’s the era my dad grew up in, that’s the kind of music I grew up with. So, before watching the show I knew most the music

10. The Villains You Hate to Love

Last, but certainly not least, the lovable villains. It’s safe to say true fans of "Supernatural" are Satan worshipers. I even find myself aligning with the devil from time to time. With Mark Pelligrino’s portrayal of Lucifer it made it hard not to sympathize with the poor misunderstood angel. Then you have guys like Crowley, who Mark Shepard did a terrific job at playing and will truly be missed, who you want to hate but you just can’t. As much as he plotted against the boys, he always had a soft spot for them and helped them just as much. His dying deed was helping them. I could go on and on but these are just a few examples. If a show can get you to fall in love with the villain than it must be pretty good, right?

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.
21941
views

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.

Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.


Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.


After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
