So many fictional couples end up in tragedy, it's almost hard to keep track. But many shouldn't have gotten together in the first place.

Take Romeo & Juliet, for example - two teenagers who killed themselves because their parents disapproved of their relationship. Really? Go on Maury. Or Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidallah - they had to have known it wasn't going to end well.

Is there anything Zeus didn't do?


Zeus and most of the animals he ends up banging.


Oh, "That 70's Show..."


Jackie and Fez. So f*cking awkward! She should have stayed with Hyde.


This was messy.


Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan.


Suicide? Really?


Romeo and Juliet... Stupid kids.


We know which one wears the pants.

History's thirstiest couple.


Paris and Helen of Troy!


Take your pick.


The Lannisters.

Anakin and Padme.


They were perfectly toxic.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic.
