This weekend, a number of heavily hyped movies battled for supremacy, including True Grit, Country Strong and Little Fockers. Despite the diminutive name, Little Fockers performed admirably, while Country Strong proved to be anything but.

How would you feel if the same beverage you enjoyed at the bar was used to fuel the car that got you there? If you were a fan of Four Loko, then you may be qualified to answer this question in the near future. Four Loko was pulled from shelves across the nation due to its dangerous combination of alcohol and caffeinated ingredients such as guarana.
