Some chefs add toppings and spices to the batters to create totally separate breakfast dishes. When pancakes and waffles are made from the same batter, chefs have said the difference in taste comes from how they’re prepared. Let’s set the record straight once and for all: A short stack of pancakes and a plate of waffles are not one and the same. Sure, the off-the-griddle breakfast items are essentially birds of a feather – quick, doughy delicacies to satisfy your morning sweet tooth – but pancakes and waffles taste vastly different and you might be surprised to know the reason why isn’t always on the tip of your tongue.

Several months earlier, he and 21 others including his father and girlfriend found themselves in handcuffs after Philadelphia Police raided the marijuana “Smoke Session” party he’d hosted in an East Frankford warehouse. The hefty charges leveled at Tamaccio – aka N.A.

The highest-grossing movies of all time are a mixed bag of action movies, superhero movies, animated movies, and more. But the majority have one thing in common: they’re just one piece in a larger franchise. Whether it’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe, James Bond, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, Middle-Earth, Harry Potter, Transformers, or any other major pop-culture series, these are beloved across the world.

The highest-grossing movies ever are also a mix of well-reviewed and critically panned ones, from “Black Panther” to “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” The list proves that, sometimes, audiences will see a movie no matter what the critics say, but great movies can also still rake in plenty of cash. We’ve provided the top 100 biggest movies of all time, based on worldwide … [Read more...] about The 100 highest-grossing movies of all time at the worldwide box office
