Because of the complexity of our bodies, certain organs and parts seem to become less and less needed over time. Whether you’re some big fan of evolution or you’re completely against it, there are parts of the human body that are no longer needed to live or survive. While they may have been necessary to live in the past, in today’s world, there are many different body parts that we just don’t need! Here is a list of the top 5 body parts that are completely useless

Wisdom teeth are those that are located in the back of the mouth. These teeth were once very helpful, especially when humans had a diet that consisted of a lot of tough meat. Wisdom teeth, at this time, allowed humans to properly chew their food. Nowadays, many people don’t even get them. And if they do, they’re surely in for a surprise. Generally wisdom teeth are removed, due to them growing in wrong or causing pain. These chompers can cause a lot of pain either way!

The coccyx, more commonly known as the tailbone, is the last part of the human vertebrae. It consists of five separate or fused vertebrae and is the remnant of the vestigial tail. However, the coccyx isn’t completely useless. It does allow many different ligaments, tendons, and muscles to attach. It is also helpful when it comes to weight-bearing. In any case, the coccyx is generally much more important in those mammals with tails.

The tonsils are another useless part of the body that can cause certain people a lot of pain. Open your mouth wide and you’ll see a tonsil on each side of your throat, unless you have had them removed. Tonsils are lymphoid tissues that are prone to becoming infected and swelling up


This doesn’t need much of an explanation. Males don’t breastfeed, so nipples really aren’t needed. I guess they serve as decoration.

The appendix is a narrow, muscular tube that attaches to the large intestine. Its purpose is to digest cellulose. The appendix was a more important and necessary organ when the body was introduced to more vegetables. When the human diet consisted of mostly plants, the appendix was extremely important. However, in today’s world, the appendix isn’t a necessary organ. In fact, sometimes the appendix can become infected and burst

Don't have Any Plans yet

Finally, it is our Semester break and it only means that we will have two consecutive weeks away from those heavy duty home works, research papers, thesis, and nose bleeding exams. Anyway, since it is my vacation, i will definitely grab this opportunity to relax and enjoy. My friends and I dont have any plans yet so i will be staying at home for several days. I guess i will just spend these days facing my computer and do my online activities like blogging and i will also play some of my favorite online games and casino games. I will search for Best online casino too to get rid of boredom. I guess it would be great to invite my friends too and encourage them to play online casino. I wonder if my other classmates already have plans this Semester break.Have a great day happy blogging everyone

Here's another interesting Top Five... We all love reality shows so here's the updated post of the


The show pits contestants against each other to complete a series of stunts better and/or quicker than all the other contestants for a grand prize of US$50,000. From Seasons One to Five, the contestants were generally three men and three women, all playing for themselves, but in Season Six, the show moved to a permanent format of four teams of two people, each with a pre-existing relationship with one another, all playing for a shared prize of the same amount. The show is hosted by comedian Joe Rogan and executive produced by Matt Kunitz.
Fear Factor has received criticism from the general public mainly because of the show's second stunt, which intends to disgust its viewers


The Amazing Race, sometimes referred to as TAR, is a reality television game show in which teams of two people (with one exception), which have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at "pit stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg. Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including planes, taxis, rental cars, trains, buses and boats. The clues in each leg point the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. These challenges are related in some manner to the country or culture where they are located. Teams are progressively eliminated until three teams are left; at that point, the team which arrives first in the final leg is awarded a large cash grand prize, usually one million U.S. dollars.


The program seeks to discover the best singer in the country through a series of nationwide auditions. The outcomes of the later stages of this competition are determined by public voting by phone. The format features four judges who give critiques of the contestants' performances: record producer Randy Jackson; pop singer and choreographer Paula Abdul; and music executive Simon Cowell. Beginning with season 8, songwriter Kara DioGuardi will be the show's fourth judge; all previous seasons had only three judges. The show is hosted by former children's game show emcee and television personality Ryan Seacrest. Last Season is filled with lots of controversies. Paula left the show, followed by Simon, then Ellen DeGeneres and then followed by Kara. It is confirmed that Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will replace the former judges.


Survivor is a popular reality television game show format produced in many countries throughout the world. In the show, contestants are isolated in the wilderness and compete for cash and other prizes. The show uses a progressive elimination, allowing the contestants to vote off a tribe member, until only one final contestant remains and wins the title of "Sole Survivor". The format for Survivor was created in 1992 by Charlie Parsons, and the first production of it was the US TV show Survivor in 1992 on CBS. The concept of Exile Island was first introduced in Survivor: Palau, when a single contestant was made to stay on a beach by herself. The concept was later expanded in Survivor: Panama and was used in its successors Survivor: Cook Islands, Survivor: Fiji and Survivor: Micronesia and more.


Big Brother is a reality television show. In each series, which lasts for around three months, a group of people (normally fewer than sixteen at any one time) live together full-time in the Big Brother House, isolated from the outside world but under the continuous gaze of television cameras. The Housemates try to win a cash prize by avoiding periodic, usually publicly-voted,
evictions from the house. Though each country has made its own adaptations and changes to the format, the general concept has stayed the same: "housemates" are confined to a specially designed house where their every action is recorded by cameras and microphones at all times and they are not permitted any contact with the outside world. In most versions, at regular intervals, normally once weekly (although in most early series it was every two weeks), the housemates are invited to vote to have one of a number of nominated housemates evicted from the House. In some cases, two housemates may be evicted simultaneously (a "double eviction"), or rarely, no housemates will be removed for that week.

Fashion and Discounts

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Liz Claiborne New York Outlets. All opinions are 100% mine.

If there’s one certified fashionista in our family, well that would be my younger sister. She is pretty amazing on how she puts her creativity on her dresses. She can wear a simple shirt in a very fashionable way. In fact, every time we are about to attend a special occasion, she is acting like our fashion mentor, teaching us what to wear. Anyway, if you will be entering her room and open her closet, you will be seeing a lot of branded clothes hanging on it. She used to save her money from her daily allowance and buy clothes for her. Fall is the time of year when designers unveil their new collections, and i guess that’s the reason why she keeps on requesting our Auntie who is now in New York, to buy one for her and grab the opportunity to get discounts. I have heard that Liz Claiborne New York Outlets are selling their entire inventory at a discount up to 50 to 80 percent off. Liz Claiborne is an internationally well known brand which is very popular for their elegant-looking dresses and designs. They also got sweaters, jackets and stylish boots. I assumed all fashionistas will jump out from their chairs and will rush to the nearest Liz Claiborne outlet to grab this limited promotion. In addition to that, Liz Claiborne will also showcase their newest fall fashions. So go ahead, buzz your friends, and find the nearest outlet near you.I wish Liz Claiborne will release some cool and stylish clothes for men too! Anyway, if you are interested, you can visit their site to check for the latest clothes arrivals , upcoming events and on going sales.

Today, i will be sharing an Anime related entry. If you are a Bleach fanatic like me, i am sure that you are very much aware with the characters i will be mentioning below.
Here we go,


Sai Fon is the captain of the 2nd Division and also the current Commander in Chief of The Secret Mobile Corps (Onmitsukidō). She is a hard worker, with a tomboy appearance who believes strongly in following orders. She is also outwardly antagonistic to her underlings as she believes this keeps them on their toes. Soi Fon also appears to apply battle techniques similar to Yoruichi which are to engage the enemies by using hand-to-hand combat with Shunko abilities.Soi Fon's zanpakutō is Suzumebachi . When released it shrinks into a stinger that is worn on the middle finger of Soifon's right hand. Whenever it stabs an opponent, a butterfly-like symbol called a hornet's crest spreads from the point of contact. The crest bears four wings because the Hornet has two sets of full-size wings located on its thorax. Due to her training, this mark can be kept there for as long as she desires. Should Suzumebachi stab the same location again, the opponent dies


Okay, this two is very inseparable so i joined them in one spot. Shunsui's a laid-back and flamboyant man, evident in his style of dress: he wears a straw hat and a pink flowered haori over his captain's uniform. In his off time, he can be seen drinking sake and napping. Other times, he likes to chase after women, particularly his lieutenant Nanao. Shunsui tends to use a more familiar speech style than most other characters in Bleach; he generally refers to his fellow captains and Soul Reapers by their first name, usually followed by an honorific. Kyōraku is a peace-loving man who will always try to find a nonviolent solution, though he does not wish to insult opponents by refusing to fight. He and his friend Jūshirō Ukitake are two of the oldest captains in the Gotei 13.
Jūshirō Ukitake on the other hand, is the captain of the 13th Division. He suffers from tuberculosis which acts as an inhibition for him throughout the series; if he fights for too long, or even becomes too agitated, the illness flares up. He is forced to leave most of his duties as a captain to his subordinates so that he can rest. Despite this, Jūshirō is respected by many Soul Reapers for his honesty, loyalty, and personal sense of justice.



Kenpachi Zaraki is the most recent captain of the 11th Division. Unlike all of his predecessors, he has given himself the title of "Kenpachi," a title given to the man in each generation who enjoys fighting more than anyone else and has the greatest bloodlust; it roughly translates to: "No matter how many times you cut him, he will never fall". He is also the only captain who not only cannot use Bankai but does not know the name of his sword.He also wears an eyepatch that eats his spiritual energy but when the eyepatch is taken off his rieatsu enables his zanpakuto to be very sharp.


Tōshirō Hitsugaya is the captain of the 10th Division and the youngest captain in the history of Soul Society. His zanpakutō is called Hyorinmaru which became a twin blade of which the double went to his friend Soujiro Kusaka who was killed because of the duplicate sword. Hyōrinmaru's shikai command is "Reign over the frosted heavens" or, alternately, "Reign over the frosted, frozen sky". Hyōrinmaru is the strongest of all ice/snow element zanpakutō in Soul Society. Hyōrinmaru's spirit is a winged Chinese dragon made of ice. Hitsugaya is often called "Shiro-chan" or "Lil' Shiro" by his childhood friend Momo Hinamori though he would always deny that name. While he was a child he and Momo Hinamori often stole and ate watermelons while watching the sunset. Of interesting note, Hitsugaya maintains an extremely mature, and almost unflappable persona, while it is hinted that he was a bit of a "wild boy" type character before becoming a soul reaper. He finds it especially annoying when people (other than other soul reaper captains) call him by his given name, or omit his honorific title when addressing him. This fact is used for the dual purpose of being a bit of a running gag, and generating his catchphrase: "That's Captain Hitsugaya to you!" (usually spoken with a teardrop or popped vein effect).



Byakuya Kuchiki is the 28th head of the noble Kuchiki clan, one of the four great noble families in Soul Society. As such, Byakuya acts in an aristocratic manner — he seems always serene and apathetic towards other people, even when he is actually deeply conflicted. He is also extremely calm, even in battle, and is very seldom surprised by even the most drastic of actions. Ironically, when he was younger, he was quick to anger and very hotheaded, as noted by his grandfather, Ginrei Kuchiki; similar to the way Ichigo and Renji are now. Byakuya strongly believes in law and order. As the head of one of the great noble families and as a captain in the Gotei 13, he always works hard for a peaceful society. He thinks that if someone in his position doesn't follow the rules as a good example, then no one will follow them. Byakuya seems to have a comic side to himself despite his extremely serious personality. He not only attends the lieutenants' meeting when Renji Abarai is absent, but also implies that he attends the meetings of the Soul Reaper Women's Association when Rukia is absent.

Today, i will be sharing another top five list. We often find male rappers like Eminem, Lil Wayne to steal the spotlight in the Rapping industry but there still some female artists who became notable with their powerful vocals and rapping style. Here's my


Jean Grae is an American rapper and hip hop artist from New York. With three solid releases--Attack of the Attacking Things, The Bootlegg of The Bootlegg EP, and This Week--under her belt, South African-born, New York-bred rapper Jean Grae has been spinning heads for the past 10 years or so. What makes Grae stand out from the pack is her combination of humor and seriousness. Whether poking fun at herself on "Going Crazy" or rhyming about loyalty and dedication on "My Crew," J.G. does it all with a touch of excellence.(Ref:


Lauryn Hill is an American recording artist, musician, producer and actress. Early in her career, she established her reputation as a member of the Fugees. In 1998, she launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The recording earned Hill five Grammy Awards, including the coveted Album of the Year and Best New Artist. As one-third of 90s super group, Fugees, L'Boogie quickly established herself as the focal point of the crew. By seamlessly blending jaw-dropping lyricism with social commentary, she helped make The Score the magnum opus of Fugees' catalog and, more importantly, a certified hip-hop classic.(Ref:


Lil' Kim, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and actress who was part of the group Junior M.A.F.I.A. Lil' Kim's The Naked Truth was the first album by a female rapper to be awarded 5 mics in The Source magazine. Whether or not the accolades were well-deserved is another story. However, Kim's impact on hip-hop is unquestionable. Since her Hard Core debut in 1996, Kim has spawned a slew of emulators, who are eager to replicate her libidinous lyrics and in-your-face persona.(Ref:


Queen Latifah, is an American rapper, actress and singer. Queen Latifah's work in music, film and television has earned her a Golden Globe award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Image Awards, a Grammy Award, six additional Grammy nominations, an Emmy Award nomination and an Academy Award nomination. Latifah started beatboxing for the rap group Ladies Fresh. Latifah was one of the members of the original version of the Flavor Unit, which, at that time, was a crew of MCs grouped around producer DJ Mark the 45 King. Although she had already received some critical acclaim, she gained mainstream success after being cast as Matron "Mama" Morton in the Oscar-winning film adaptation of the musical Chicago, the recipient of the Best Picture Oscar. Latifah received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role, but lost to co-star Catherine Zeta-Jones.


MC Lyte is an American rapper who first gained fame in the late-1980s becoming the first solo female rapper to release a full album with 1988's critically acclaimed Lyte as a Rock, which featured the crossover hit, "Paper Thin". Lyte's other hits have included "Cha Cha Cha", "Poor Georgie", "Ruffneck" and "Cold Rock a Party". With gems like "I Cram to Understand U (Sam)" and "10% Dis" from her 1988 debut, Lyte As a Rock, MC Lyte changed hip-hop's perception of femcees without changing her outfit. Instead, she cloaked herself in dignity and integrity. And did I mention that she could run circles around many of her male counterparts with her take-your-hats-off wordplay? Lyte's originality, smooth flow, substance-packed content, and impeccable delivery, make her the unquestionable queen of rap music.(Ref:

Here's a slide show of our upcoming projects... but of course i will not reveal the actual projects yet... just the materials haha

Hi everyone, it's been a hard month for me because i lost all my blogging daily activities. I will try my best to catch up again and thank you all for continuously supporting my blog despite of my inactiveness. To start this month of October, here's my first top five entry for this month



Skunks are mammals best known for their ability to secrete a liquid with a strong, foul-smelling odor. General appearance ranges from species to species, from black-and-white to brown or cream colored. Skunks belong to the family Mephitidae and to the order Carnivora. There are 10 species of skunks, which are divided into four genera: Mephitis (hooded and striped skunks, two species), Spilogale (spotted skunks, two species), Mydaus (stink badgers, two species), and Conepatus (hog-nosed skunks, four species). The two skunk species in the Mydaus genus inhabit Indonesia and the Philippines; all other skunks inhabit the Americas from Canada to central South America.


Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have become flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their life on land and half in the oceans. Penguins seem to have no special fear of humans, and have approached groups of explorers without hesitation. This is probably because penguins have no land predators in Antarctica or the nearby offshore islands. Instead, penguins are at risk at sea from predators such as the leopard seal. Typically, penguins do not approach closer than about 3 meters (10 ft) at which point they become nervous. This is also the distance that Antarctic tourists are told to keep from penguins (tourists are not supposed to approach closer than 3 meters, but are not expected to withdraw if the penguins come closer).


The killer whale (Orcinus orca), commonly referred to as the orca, and less commonly as the blackfish, is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales as a species have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as sea lions, seals, walruses and even large whales. Killer whales are regarded as apex predators, lacking natural predators and preying on even large sharks.Killer whales are highly social; some populations are composed of matrilineal family groups which are the most stable of any animal species. Their sophisticated hunting techniques and vocal behaviors, which are often specific to a particular group and passed across generations, have been described as manifestations of culture



The Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca, literally meaning "black and white cat-foot") is a bear native to central-western and south western China. It is easily recognized by its large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. Though it belongs to the order Carnivora, the Giant Panda's diet is 99% bamboo. Other parts of its diet include honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, and bananas when available. In the wild, the Giant Panda is a terrestrial animal and primarily spends its life roaming and feeding in the bamboo forests of the Qinling Mountains and in the hilly Sichuan Province. Though generally alone, each adult has a defined territory and females are not tolerant of other females in their range. Pandas communicate through vocalization and scent marking such as clawing trees or spraying urine. The Giant Panda is able to climb and take shelter in hollow trees or rock crevices but does not establish permanent dens. For this reason, pandas do not hibernate, which is similar to other subtropical mammals, and will instead move to elevations with warmer temperatures. Pandas rely primarily on spatial memory rather than visual memory.


Zebras are African equids best known for their distinctive black and white stripes. Their stripes come in different patterns unique to each individual. They are generally social animals and can be seen in small harems to large herds. Unlike their closest relatives, horses and asses, zebras have never been truly domesticated.The unique stripes and behaviors of zebras make these among the animals most familiar to people. They can be found in a variety of habitats, such as grasslands, savannas, woodlands, thorny scrublands, mountains and coastal hills. However, various anthropogenic factors have had a severe impact on zebra populations, in particular hunting for skins and habitat destruction. Grevy's zebra and the mountain zebra are endangered. While plains zebras are much more plentiful, one subspecies, the quagga, went extinct in the late nineteenth century.
I actually want to include Dalmatians in my list but i guess Skunks are more deserving in the category.

All About Keno

Bingo is one of my favorite gambling games. I used to play this game with my friends during our spare time. But of course, we are only doing this for fun. This is the reason why I am so happy to discover that casino has its own version of this game in which they called it Keno. Keno is not that complicated unlike other casino games like card games which include Poker and Spanish 21. Here, you do no need to apply skills or techniques to maximize your chances of winning. Like roulette and slot machines, Keno is considered as a game of chance. Actually, I am so lucky because when I tried playing Keno for the very first time, I stepped over a site that offers no deposit online casinos which is commonly being offered to all new comers or first timers. My friend even encourages me to try using E-check Casinos, a new way of payment and is an electronic version of our regular check. However, even I love playing this game, I always keep my self controlled and prevent from getting too addicted into it. It is much better not to bet more than what you can afford and you always have to remember that you will be playing this game just to have fun and not to treat it as one of your vices. Happy playing!

Getting Excited

My uncle went to my house last night to inform us about his daughter’s upcoming wedding. HE is really a one proud father and it seems that he is more excited than his daughter. Anyway, he stayed there for about 4 hours and I invite him to play online casino with me. For those who don’t know yet, it is my uncle who encouraged me to play such games. He showed me where to find all the best online casinos and what are the best online casinos games. I love roulette and keno and also the online slot machines. They are what so called game of chance and requires no skills and techniques for you to win. In short, everything here is nothing but luck. Anyway, he also showed me where to find sites that offers no deposit casino bonus which really helps me a lot. He even encouraged me to try playing Amex casinos which I find very interesting. We played casino for a couple of hours and then he soon went to my dad to discuss about his daughters wedding plan. I just can’t relate to them because I know it will take a long time for me before getting married so I just let them talk and keep myself busy win playing online casino.

Meeting Satisfaction

Are you satisfied with your body? Are you confident with what you have right now? Let me share you a story about my friend. I dare not to reveal her name to respect her privacy. This friend of mine undergone a medical procedure called breast augmentation. I am not so sure how exactly the procedure was done but as I searched something about it online, I found out that breast augmentation is just the same as breast implant. I am nothing against these procedures. In fact, I have found that a huge percentage of Americans especially in California, highly embrace such procedures. It is also said that California breast augmentation is well known world wide for providing a very satisfying results to their patients. Anyway, going back to my friend, we find her more confident after she have done that process which is so good for her. I guess these medical procedures like the one being offered in California like the Los Angeles rhinoplasty and the Beverly Hills liposuction and other related medical procedures help their patients not just to have their desired body but also to help them boost their confidence and increase their self esteem. If you will be asked, will you consider these medical procedures as the best way for you to be satisfied with your body? Well, I know some of you might say “No” if you find these medical procedures risky and highly expensive. You might say no if you have what so called “Contentment” with what you have or you really don’t need it that much. But of course, for those who can afford such procedures and for those who are willing to undergo such surgeries, and for those who really want to get out from their shells and show the world what they can be, medical procedures like this is the key towards a brand new life. However, it is not all about the money because the most important factor to consider here before undergoing any operation is to ensure your self that you are dealing with well trusted and well trained surgeons. For me, there’s nothing really wrong in embracing such procedures as long as you have the right surgeons to trust with.
