My favorite foo-foo dresses I wish I had a reason to wear.
Whether the dress is costume-y or fashion, I truly love dressing up. I respect those who don't, and would never be a jerk about it, but I have a closet of lovely things and nowhere to go, you guys!

Annoyed movie-goers (and director James Cameron) have argued this one for years but we can finally put it to rest. The Mythbusters crew (Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman) tried to figure out if Titanic's Rose and Jack could both have survived.
