Coed Magazine posted the list of the "highest" countries in the world. We're not talking about mountain peaks here. We're talking marijuana consumption. Surprisingly, the Netherlands doesn't even appear on the list, despite having legal marijuana for sale in hash bars and coffee shops.

Here's the Top Five:
5. France
4. Denmark
3. New Zealand
2. United States
1. Canada.

Yep. Our neighbors to the north already beat us at education, health care, and hockey player production. They might as well get high more than we do too.

Check out more on the highest countries here.

Well, some religious nut is saying that the world will end tomorrow.

Which Apocalypse Would Be the Most Fun? -- powered by Cracked.com

I don't buy it, but it does give me an excuse to share my Top Five Apocalypse Movies, plus an Armageddon Soundtrack (not to be confused with the soundtrack from the movie Armageddon. There will not be any horrible Aerosmith ballads listed here.)

Top Five Apocalypse Movies:

#5 -The Terminator / Terminator 2: Judgement Day
In a world where we are increasingly dependent upon technology this one gets scary. Communication, transportation, finance, and nearly every other aspect of your life is now run by computers. Your mobile phone tracks you everywhere you go. Then SkyNet becomes self-aware and this happens.

If you go by the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Skynet became self-aware on April 19, 2011 and began its attack against humanity on April 21. I hope they weren't off by a month.

#4 - Planet of the Apes
A planet where apes evolved from men? Yes. But that only happened because (spoiler!) You blew it up! Damn you! Damn you all to hell!


#3 - The Road Warrior (Mad Max 2)
Yes, it's a post-apocalyptic wasteland where everyone's fighting over a few drops of gasoline. But all those car chases are awesome!


#2 - Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
If we've got a nuclear holocaust coming, at least Dr. Strangelove has a pretty sweet plan for the survival of the human race.


#1 - Ghostbusters
If the world is going to end, I'd really like to see the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man bring it down. Or at least that hot Sheena-Easton-looking Gozer chick. Plus, as long as Peter Venkman is in our corner this might be the only Apocalypse we could actually stop.


And now your official Elwood Soundtrack to the Apocalypse (aka "Lenny Bruce is Not Afraid"):
  • R.E.M. - It's the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)
  • Nine Inch Nails - The Beginning of the End
  • Van Halen - The Seventh Seal
  • U2 - Until the End of the World
  • Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun 
  • Dave Matthews Band - When the World Ends
  • Van Halen - Judgement Day
  • Metallica block:
    • The Four Horsemen
    • Blackened
    • My Apocalypse
    • Fade to Black
  • Smashing Pumpkins - The End is the Beginning is the End
  • Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction
  • Def Leppard - Armageddon It!
  • Soundgarden - Blow Up the Outside World 
  • Nine Inch Nails - The Day The World Went Away 
  • Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line
  • Pink Floyd - Goodbye Cruel World
  • The Doors - The End
I know I'm forgetting some... let me know if you think of any more!
