BetterZip defies laws of physics! Read all about it!
 
lol it creates files that are actually LARGER than the originals haha. I got rid of it and am just using the compressor that came with my MAc.

Actually, that is a possibility with any compression program - if you end up trying to compress something that is already highly compressed, the resultant file can be bigger due to any headers/crc/trailer data/etc that the compression software tacks on based upon the algorithm used. Although, there are also just some compression packages that just suck and that might be one of them ;)
