Top 5 Toughest Presidents

Being the leader of the free world is a tough job. You have to have a set of stones if you’re going to let the world know who’s boss. However, some Presidents are more physically imposing then others and would have no problem showing the opposition who’s boss. Here are the top five President’s that, if Politics were the UFC,would stomp Hugo Chavez’s ass.

Gerald Ford

gerald ford Top 5 Toughest Presidents
Despite being portrayed as a klutz by the media, Ford was linebacker and center for the University of Michigan giving the school two undefeated seasons and national titles in 1932 and 1933. He also took down Heisman Trophy winner Jay Berwanger.

Teddy Roosevelt

teddy roosevelt Top 5 Toughest Presidents

Forget that crippled guy, if ever there was a “man’s man” in the Oval Office, it’s Teddy Roosevelt. The original “Rough Rider”, Roosevelt enjoyed hunting, ranching, taking down outlaws, and boxing. Upon leaving the White House, Roosevelt enjoyed big game hunting and killed 512 big game animals like rhinos while on safari. Care to step into the ring Ahemadinjad?

Andrew Jackson

andrew jackson Top 5 Toughest Presidents
There’s a reason this guy is on the twenty. At age thirteen, Jackson joined the Revolutionary War effort as a courier and wound up being taken prisoner by the British. While incarcerated, Jackson not only almost starved to death but took slashes from a Red Coat for refusing to clean his captors boots. One would think Jackson would’ve started playing it safe after that incident, but he’d only just begun. Jackson had a unique way of settling disputes; with a duel. Jackson reportedly fought 13 duels one of which he won with a bullet lodged in his chest.

Abraham Lincoln

abraham lincoln Top 5 Toughest Presidents Don’t mess with this guy, when Lincoln lived in New Salem he challenged the leader of a local group of ruffians to a wrestling match. Lincoln grabbed the guy by the neck and shook him like he was child, riling up his gang. When a normal man would’ve retreated, Lincoln offered to take ‘em all on. Should’ve thought twice Confederacy.

Ulysses S. Grant

ulysses grant Top 5 Toughest Presidents
One of the most aggressive and successful generals of the Civil War, Grant was described by historians as a man who understood the importance of “the simple importance of inflicting greater losses on the enemy than he can sustain, day after day, until he breaks. Grant the boy never retraced his steps. Grant the man did not retreat—he advanced.” Bad ass.

8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek Gods

zeus greek mythology 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek GodsThe Greeks brought the world a number of awesome things.

The first Olympics, delicious Gyros, but most importantly The Greek Gods.

Today we’re going to jump into the Delorian and take a look at what might have happened if you somehow disappointed one of them.


Does the punishment fit the crime?  In many cases we’d like to say no, but we’ll let you be the judge.

actaeon 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek Gods

Actaeon – Actaeon was a hunter who spent his days chasing wild life with his hound dogs.  One afternoon he was hunting in the woods when he stumbled across Artemis who was bathing.  Like any heterosexual male, he took a moment to admire her cans.

His Punishment - Artemis didn’t like the fact that she was being stared at by a nobody, so she cursed him with forbidden speech.  Talking would result in a shape shift.  Basically he had to shut the f**k up for the rest of his life or he would turn into a deer.  Sadly, he couldn’t keep quiet long and he tried to call out to his hunting party.  Upon doing so, he was turned into a stag and ripped to pieces by his own dogs.  Pretty steep fine for accidentally stumbling across a set of t**s.

arachnerzd 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek Gods

Arachne – Archne was a weaver, and a damn good one.  Like many people who become the best at something, she slowly started to develop a monster ego.  She even went so far as to tell people that she could out weave Athena (the goddess of wisdom and war as well as the weaving arts).  Athena gets pi**ed, disguises herself, and challenges Archne to a ‘weave off’.  Arachne weaves up several portraits of the gods displaying infidelity (oops).  Although the tapestry was flawless, it sent Athena into a rage.

Her Punishment – Athena (now pi**ed) completely destroys Arachne’s work, and touches her forehead.  Doing so instilled the notion of guilt upon her.  This sent Arachne into a depression and eventually she hanged herself.  Now feeling bad that Arachne had off’d herself, Athena decides to bring  her back to life…as a fu**ing spider.


io 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek Gods

IO – Zeus liked to play the field.  One of the hunnies he liked to mess with was a slammin’ betty named IO.  One day they were getting it on, when Zeus’ jealous wife (Hera) rolls up on them.  Not wanting to get caught, Zeus quickly turned IO into a cow.  Hera wasn’t completely fooled though so she demanded the cow as a gift.

Her Punishment – Poor IO really didn’t do anything wrong.  Sure she was grabbing her ankles for Zeus, but what would’ve happened if she had said no? Exactly.  Eventually Zeus decides he wants her back so he gets Hermes to kill Argus (who was gaurding IO in her cow state).  The now very jealous (and bat s**t crazy) Hera just became more upset and had a gadfly chase down IO, stinging her in the ass, so she could never rest again.

sisyphus 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek GodsSisyphus – Zeus had taken the daughter of the river god Asopus for his sexual desires.

Sisyphus knew where she was, so he made a stupid move and told Asopus of her whereabouts.

His Punishment – Naturally this made Zeus furious, so he gave him a slap on the wrist.

By slap on the wrist I mean, being cursed to push a gigantic boulder up a hill, only to have it roll back down again – for eternity.

narkissos 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek GodsNarkissos – This guy was a regular lady killer.  By the time he was 15 years old, every girl in town wanted to be with him.  One day, a grl by the name of Echo stalked him into the woods.  When she finally showed herself he wasn’t the least bit interested and basically said “t**s or gtfo” (without the t**s part).  This devastated Echo.

His Punishment – Since Echo was a total crybaby, she spent the rest of her life doing so, until Nemesis heard her prayers.  Apparently Nemesis was tired of her belly aching as well so he decided to give Narkissos a taste of his own medicine.  Later, Narkissos saw his reflection in the water, fell love with it, realized that it was an image of himself, and died (knowing he couldn’t act upon his love).  His soul was sent to the darkest hell (the narcissus flower grew where his body once l**d).  Keep this story in mind next time you’re about to shun the girl with f***ed up teeth at the bar.

ixion11 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek GodsIxion – One evening Zeus invited Ixion over for dinner.  The not so bright Ixion started to lust after Hera.  Playing footsie with Zeus’ old lady was definitely frowned upon, so he was scolded and told to stop.  Being a generous host, Zeus invites Ixion to stay the night.  To test his loyality he formed a cloud like replica of his wife and sent her to Ixion’s room.  Ixion, without missing a beat, hit that s**t.


His Punishment – Zeus was done giving this guy warnings so fired a lightning bolt at him.  He wasn’t quite satisfied with just a lightning bolt though so he fastened him to burning wheel…for eternity.

tiresias iii 300x231 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek GodsTiresias – This guy once came across two snakes mating, so he decided to kill one of them (the female snake).  For some reason this turned him into a woman.  Years later he saw different set of snakes mating, so he killed the male this time, turning him back into a man.  Meanwhile, Zeus and his woman (Hera) were arguing about who gets the most pleasure out of sex, the man or the woman.  They called upon Tiresias to settle this (since he had been bent over quite a few times when he was in his female state).  Tiresias explained that men give 10 times more pleasure then they receive during sex.

His Punishment - Surprise, surprise – Hera is fu**ng fired up yet again.  Displeased with losing the argument, she decides to blind poor Tiresias.  Zeus was like “Damn dude I hate when she gets in these moods, I can’t get your eyes back but I will extend your life by 7 and also give you the gift of foresight.”  There really isn’t a moral here besides ‘never try to win an argument with a woman’.

prometh eagle 150x150 8 Overkill Punishments Dished out by Greek GodsPrometheus – It is said that without Prometheus, mankind would have never had fire.  He did this by putting some hot coal in a fennel-stalk that he took from the gods, then gave the contraption we call fire, back to the humans.

His Punishment - Zeus did not like this act of betrayal so he chained Prometheus to a rock.  That doesn’t seem to bad does it?  Oh I forgot to mention that a motherfu****g eagle swoops down every day to eat out his liver which regenerated at night.

Conclusion: Sure the gods were a bit harsh, and sometimes I’d go so far as to say they were being as**oles, but look what it accomplished.  People knew that if they messed up, they’d be eating a s**t sandwich (possibly for eternity).  Wouldn’t you feel a whole lot better if the douchebag who cut you off in the Ford Ranger got a Greek God smack down?  “Dear Zeus, some bro in a Ranger just cut me off, also his bumper sticker said ‘Hera sucks d**k’.”.

The Ark of the Covenant

the20new20arkrc5 Most Amazing Treasures Nobody Ever Found

To the ancient Israelites, the Ark of the Covenant was the most sacred thing on Earth. The central and paramount object of the Hebrew nation, this ornate chest was, according to the Bible, designed by God.

Measuring 44 inches long, 26 inches wide, and 26 inches high, the chest was made of acacia wood, overlaid inside and out with pure gold, and surrounded by an artistic gold border. Mounted on the solid gold cover were two golden cherubs, one at each end of the cover facing each other, with heads bowed and wings extending upward.

The Ark served as a holy archive for the safekeeping of sacred relics, including the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. As a historical and religious treasure, the Ark and its contents were absolutely priceless.

What’s Inside Rome’s Ancient Catacombs

Corridor in the famous catacombs of Rome

inside catacombs Whats Inside Romes Ancient Catacombs

Catacombs such as these were carved over hundreds of years, beginning in the second century A.D., from soft rock beneath the outskirts of Rome. The labyrinthine corridors of these underground cemeteries cover hundreds of acres and house the remains of hundreds of thousands of Christians and Jews.

Rome’s famous catacombs were built mainly by Christians who could not afford aboveground burial plots. Christian landowners outside the city allowed access to their property for underground burials, and over several centuries, the catacombs spread through miles of subterranean passages like these.

A cross inlaid in the floor of a library marks the spot where Indiana Jones has to dig to access the ancient catacombs of Venice in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The catacombs, a network of dark and narrow underground tunnels and tombs, hold the secret that eventually leads Indy to the hideout of the Holy Grail.
Unfortunately, the dramatic scene is a narrative license. “There are no catacombs in Venice, as the town rises on wood piles in the middle of the saltwater Venetian Lagoon. There is no room for underground chambers or passages, and only a few buildings have a basement,” says Luigi Fozzati, head of the Archaeological Superintendence of Veneto.

In fact, Venice’s cemetery is located on a small island outside the town, and the oldest tombs of nobles and heads of state lie aboveground in churches.

Double gallery in the catacombs of Rome

rome ancient catacombs Whats Inside Romes Ancient Catacombs To find catacombs, go to Rome, home of some of the oldest and longest burial underground tunnels in the world. “Hundreds of kilometers of catacombs run underneath the town and its outskirts,” says Adriano Morabito, president of the association Roma Sotterranea (Underground Rome). “Some of the networks are well known and open to visitors, while others are still scarcely explored. Probably there are a number of lost catacombs, too.”

The oldest tunnels date back to the first century. “The Jewish community in Rome built them as cemeteries. Christian catacombs came a century later. They were not secret meeting places to survive persecutions, as historians thought in the past, but burial tunnels, like the Jewish ones,” Morabito explains. “They used to grow larger and larger around the tombs of saints because people asked to be buried near their religious leaders.”

All Christian catacombs in Rome are property of the Catholic Church, and no one is allowed to explore them without special permission from the Vatican. “It’s not so easy to get the permission. That’s one of the reasons there have been very few archaeological expeditions to less known tunnels in the last decades,” Morabito says.

The Legend of the Holy Grail

The aura of mystery surrounding the catacombs has fed legends for centuries. Recently, Alfredo Barbagallo, an amateur archaeologist, claimed that the Holy Grail could be hidden in Rome, in the catacomb underneath the Basilica of San Lorenzo Fuori le Mura, near the tomb of St. Lawrence, a deacon martyred in A.D. 258.

According to a legend, Pope Sixtus II entrusted the Holy Grail to Lawrence to save it from the persecution of Emperor Valerian. The deacon put the chalice in a safe place—and perhaps even sent it to Spain—before being killed. Barbagallo thinks the Grail never left Rome and is currently buried in a tunnel under the basilica dedicated to St. Lawrence.

Vatican authorities denied permission to open the catacomb and look for the chalice. “There isn’t any solid evidence behind Barbagallo’s claims,” says Vincenzo Fiocchi Nicolai, rector of the Pontifical Institute of Christian Archaeology.

Adriano Morabito agrees. “We don’t expect any great discovery from Roman catacombs. Early Christians didn’t use to bury objects with the dead. As for now we only found inscriptions and human remains.”

10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008

It’s amazing what you can find! These unbelievable discoveries of 2008 make it exciting to be a collector, and for many of these lucky finders, provide quite a nice cash reward as well. Maybe it is finally time to dig your old metal detector out of the closet (doesn’t everybody have one of those?) and think about building some extra income this year – with some kind of awesome discovery! Avast, matey, buried treasure!

1. Gold Coins found in Jerusalem

1 gold coins 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008

The Israel Antiquities Authority reported a thrilling find Sunday — the discovery of 264 ancient gold coins in Jerusalem National Park.

The coins were minted during the early 7th century.

“This is one of the largest and most impressive coin hoards ever discovered in Jerusalem — certainly the largest and most important of its period,” said Doron Ben-Ami and Yana Tchekhanovets, who are directing the excavation on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Researchers discovered the coins at the beginning of the eight-day Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, which started at sunset on Sunday.

One of the customs of the holiday is to give “gelt,” or coins, to children, and the archaeologists are referring to the find as “Hanukkah money.”

Nadine Ross, a British archaeological volunteer, happened onto the coins during the dig just below the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.

“To be honest, I just thought, ‘Thank God I didn’t throw it in the rubbish bucket,’ ” said Ross, who had taken four weeks off from her engineering job in England to work at the site. “I was just glad I sort of spotted it before I disturbed it too much.”

The 1,400-year-old coins were found in the Giv’ati car park in the City of David in the walls around Jerusalem National Park, a site that has yielded other finds, including a well-preserved gold earring with pearls and precious stones.

2. A Hobbyist with a Metal Detector Strikes Gold… and Silver!

2 celtic coins 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008AMSTERDAM, Netherlands —  A hobbyist with a metal detector struck both gold and silver when he uncovered an important cache of ancient Celtic coins in a cornfield in the southern Dutch city of Maastricht.

“It’s exciting, like a little boy’s dream,” Paul Curfs, 47, said Thursday after the spectacular find was made public.

Archaeologists say the trove of 39 gold and 70 silver coins was minted in the middle of the first century B.C. as the future Roman ruler Julius Caesar led a campaign against Celtic tribes in the area.

Curfs said he was walking with his detector this spring and was about to go home when he suddenly got a strong signal on his earphones and uncovered the first coin.

“It was golden and had a little horse on it — I had no idea what I had found,” he said.

After posting a photo of the coin on a Web forum, he was told it was a rare find. The following day he went back and found another coin.

“It looked totally different — silver, and saucer-shaped,” he said. Curfs notified the city of his find, and he and several other hobbyists helped in locating the rest of the coins, in cooperation with archaeologists.

3. 300 Morgan Silver Dollars Found in Backyard Treasure

3 silver coins 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008The Case of the Missing 300 Silver Dollars, or What In The World Is Something Like That Doing In A Place Like This, likely will never be solved. That they were actually uncovered is astonishing enough, but to find out why 300 Morgan silver dollars from 1887 in mint condition were under a foot of hardened soil on former Amarillo Mayor Jerry Hodge’s property, well, let your imagination be your guide.

Our story begins June 11. Plumbers were digging a trench to run utilities for a pool house and swimming pool on property Hodge had purchased adjacent to his home on Oldham Circle in Amarillo. Randy McMinn had a backhoe about a foot deep when on one particular scoop, mixed in with the dirt, was found a bunch of dingy little objects.

Whoa, time out. Work came to a halt, and closer inspection revealed them to be coins – old coins from 1887. Careful digging found a lot more in some kind of fine plastic, what Margaret, Hodge’s wife, described as sort of an old version of Saran Wrap. Lest anyone think plastic is a recent invention, plastic was used as early as World War I.

The coins had Lady Liberty on one side and the American eagle on the other. A little bit of homework found them to be Morgan silver dollars, which were minted from 1878 to 1904. A count of the coins totaled 100 … 150 … 200 … 250 … 300 of them.

4. Treasure Hunter Discovers Gold Ring with Rare Black Diamond

4 diamond ring 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008A treasure hunter was stunned when  he unearthed a beautiful and historic gold ring with a rare black diamond set inside it in a muddy field.

John Stevens, 42, couldn’t believe his eyes when he rubbed off the soil and saw lettering indicating the ring was from the early medieval period, possibly the 11th century.

It is believed the ring would have belonged to a wealthy person either from the Church, or possibly even royalty.

Black diamonds are rare today and would have been even rarer nearly 1,000 years ago, having come from Africa.

The ring has not yet been valued but is thought it could be worth tens of thousands of pounds.

It is currently being examined and will go to an inquest where it will almost certainly be recorded as treasure.

Mr Stevens, a businessman from Hinckley, has been metal detecting for 30 years, and this find in his home county of Leicestershire is his most valuable yet.

After discovering it he contacted antiquities specialist Brett Hammond from Time Line Originals.

5. Amateur Hits Gold Unearthed Golden Collar Valued at over $500,000

5 gold collar 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008An iron age gold collar worth more than £350,000 that was found by an amateur metal detectorist in a muddy field in Nottinghamshire was described yesterday as the best find of its kind in half a century.

“I was only in the field because a customer kept me late,” Maurice Richardson, a tree surgeon from Newark, said yesterday. “Normally I’d never want to go into this field because a plane crashed there in the last war, and the whole place is littered with bits of metal.”

The first beep from his detector was indeed a chunk of wartime scrap metal, but as he bent down to discard it, his machine gave a louder signal. Expecting to find a bigger chunk of fuselage, he instead discovered the 2,200-year-old collar.

The piece, a near twin of one already in the British Museum, was the most spectacular of 1,257 finds reported over the last three years. Treasure reports have increased every year since the Portable Antiquities scheme was set up to record finds by the public in England and Wales.

“It’s a fabulous thing, the best Iron Age find in 50 years,” said JD Hill, head of the British Museum’s iron age department. “When I first saw a picture of it I thought somebody was pulling my leg because it is so like the Sedgeford torc in our collection that it must have been made by the same hand.

6. Treasure Hunter Finds Rare Gold Coins

6 carausius coins 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008A treasure-hunter could be in line for a small fortune after unearthing two rare coins that shed light on a little-known rebel Roman emperor.

Derrick Fretwell’s finds, which date back to AD286 and the reign of Carausius, have been hailed “priceless” by experts at the British Museum. Mr Fretwell, 57, was digging in a field near Ashbourne, Derbys, when he uncovered the coins, which are at least 90 per cent gold.

The discovery of these two gold coins sheds light on a little known ‘British’ Emperor.

Gold coins of Carausius are extremely rare, until now only 23 being in existence. The last example found was in 1975 in Hampshire and it is quite possible that we will have to wait for over 30 years before another one sees the light of day.

Carausius was a Menapian (from modern Belgium). In the AD 280s he was the commander of the Roman Fleet (“Classis Britannica”) that patrolled the English Channel and North Sea. The fleet was commanded from Boulogne and one of its major functions was to defend Britain and Gaul (France) from Saxon raiders. Carausius fell foul of the Roman emperors Diocletian and Maximian, supposedly because he allowed the Saxons to RAID and only intercepted them afterwards, keeping the stolen loot for himself! Rather than hand himself over, Carausius declared himself emperor of Northern Gaul and Britain and set up his own mini-empire.

7. 72 Year Old Woman Uncovers Roman Treasure

7 gold leaf2 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008A 72-YEAR-OLD woman found a piece of Roman treasure on farmland near Clifton.  Alice Wright found the small gold leaf while using her metal detector in the Clifton area on March 23.

The leaf was declared as treasure trove, meaning she may receive a reward for her find, at an inquest in Nottingham.

Mrs Wright, from Littleover in Derby, has sent the object to the British Museum, and another museum is interested in acquiring it.

The Roman votive leaf is believed to date back to sometime between the first and fourth century.

Coroner Dr Nigel Chapman said: “The object was incomplete and folded to suggest that it had been removed from its original temple context.

“It is characteristic of Roman votive plaques that were dedicated at temples and shrines in Britain.”

He congratulated Mrs Wright on finding the treasure and sending it on to the British Museum.

8. Viking Hoard Discovered in Sweden

8 viking hoard 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008Hundreds of ancient coins unearthed last week close to Sweden’s main international airport suggests the Vikings were bringing home foreign currency earlier than previously thought, archaeologists say. Buried some 1,150 years ago, the treasure trove is made up mainly of Arabic coins and represents the largest early Viking hoard ever discovered in Sweden.

Archaeologists from the Swedish National Heritage Board unexpectedly found the stash of 472 silver coins while excavating a Bronze Age tomb near Stockholm’s Arlanda airport.

Kenneth Jonsson, a professor of coin studies at the University of Stockholm, has independently dated the hoard to about A.D. 850.

“That date is very early, because coin imports [by the Vikings] only start in about [A.D.] 800,” Jonsson said.

The discovery contains more coins than Sweden’s only other known large Viking hoard from the period, which was discovered in 1827, Jonsson added.

9. Metal Detector Enthusiast Finds 6000 Roman Coins

9 roman coins 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008

One of the largest deposits of Roman coins ever recorded in Wales, has been declared treasure trove.

Nearly 6,000 copper alloy coins were found buried in two pots in a field at Sully, Vale of Glamorgan by a local metal detector enthusiast in April.

After the ruling by the Cardiff coroner, a reward is likely to be paid to the finder and landowner.

It is hoped the coins will be donated to National Museum Wales, which has called the find “exceptional”.

Two separate hoards were found by the metal detectorist on successive days, one involving 2,366 coins and the other 3,547 coins, 3m away.

The 1,700-year-old coins dated from the reigns of numerous emperors, notably Constantine I (the Great, AD 307-37), during whose time Christianity was first recognised as a state religion.

Derek Eveleigh, 79, from Penarth, who came across the hoards in a field of sheep, has kept his find a secret until the outcome of the inquest.

10. Bus Driver Digs up £80,000 Worth of Bronze Axe Heads

10 axe heads 10 Amazing Uncovered Treasures From 2008

Bus driver and metal detector fanatic Tom Peirce is in for a bumper pay day after unearthing 500 Bronze Age artefacts – one of the largest ever ancient finds.

Amateur treasure hunter Mr Peirce started combing a field after dropping off a school coach party at a farm – and now he could have a haul worth more than £80,000 on his hands.

Within a few minutes, the device began beeping and the 60-year-old dug 10 inches into the ground to find a partial axe head.

He realised he had struck it lucky when he dug deeper and found dozens more.

Over the next two days, he and colleague Les Keith uncovered nearly 500 bronze artefacts dating back 3,000 years.

The find prompted a Time Team-style search of the area by excited archaeologists.

The hoard, which included 268 complete axe heads, is one of the biggest of its kind found in Britain.

Mr Peirce, 60, will have to split any proceeds with landowner Alfie O’Connell.

Mr Peirce said: “We are extremely thrilled and excited because this was a once-in-a-lifetime find. It’s like winning the lottery – you don’t think it is going to happen to you.

“If you speak to other detectorists, they will find a nice coin or something in 20 or 30 years of treasure hunting.

“You do it as a hobby – you don’t do it for the money but if you strike it lucky then so be it.”

Mr Peirce stumbled upon the field after taking a group of schoolchildren for a day out at the farm near Swanage, Dorset.

He asked farmer Mr O’Connell for permission to search the two-acre field and later returned with Mr Keith.

The hoard was found up to 2ft down in three holes spread 50ft apart.

It is believed there was a Bronze Age settlement nearby where the axe heads would have been manufactured.
