The Debunker: Is Godzilla a Green Lizard?

by Ken Jennings

October means Halloween is coming—you know, the very witching hour of night when churchyards yawn and graves give up their dead and so on. But if you're still picking out your costume—and you're looking for something a little scarier than Sexy Donald Trump—you might need a refresher course, because it's surprising how much we don't know about some of our most iconic monsters.

Music Monday: All Hail Tennessee

by Scott Lydon

Maybe that's one of the reasons Tennessee has long been so full of music?

More tens to see after the jump. See you inside.
