I never thought I would say this but I like Cracked.

I think Fark has made me into a Cracked addict, too.

No mention of the Potato gun? Those were a staple of my childhood.

I did my undergraduate work at Vanderbilt, and every year there was an engineering competition to see who could build the most accurate Potato Gun. I witnessed the last year they held this competition. The cause? When you want to see if your ignition device is working, do not close the chamber, walk around to the business end, look down the barrel, and have a friend make sparks to see if they're visible. The vapors from the glue that is still setting will build up to combustible levels within the device, and subsequently blow up in your face. That kid is blind in one eye now.

===================================

I've never laughed at ANYTHING like I've laughed at some cracked articles. There was a couple I literally had to stop reading so I could recompose myself.

This is a repeat!

Seconding the "starting to like Cracked lists."
 
2009-05-22 02:30:30 PM
Third time is the charm!
 
2009-05-22 02:32:33 PM
Cracked Blocked, can someone post the list for those of us less fortunate (or more fortunate, depending on your POV?)
 
2009-05-22 02:33:14 PM
um, no

Thanks for linking to the second page, Subby!

/not that it's a lot of work to click back a page, but still..
 
2009-05-22 02:34:42 PM
never had a problem with cracked, but i do have to wonder...
when did we start greenlighting ads?? is it really that easy now?

/christ, they didn't even change the headline

That human slingshot is nuts...I'd like to see it break and the girl go flying into the house, or flying through the air.

That would be great.

Any chance of getting pics for those poor saps that are blocked?

#7 Super Soaker Flamethrower

One of these was used very effectively as a weapon last Christmas.

What about the V8 snowblower
 
2009-05-22 02:48:10 PM
This article made me go "meh."
 
2009-05-22 02:48:50 PM
Subby's own hack curiously absent from the list.

Though i don't think making people read less cracked makes it more dangerous.
 
2009-05-22 02:49:07 PM
did somebody say flaming swords?

Lawn mower blade, pilot light, motorcycle handbrake, motorcycle gas tank?
 
2009-05-22 02:49:16 PM
I like Cracked and I liked it when everyone else hated it. So there. I'm first. What do I win?
 
2009-05-22 02:49:47 PM
There's a critical mass of "hey y'all, watch this!" in the article.

Human slingshot looks like the most dangerous one. I thought she was going to die... then I realized that it wasn't liveleak.

oddball318: did somebody say flaming swords?

I remember the first time I carried the Shishkebab into a room with a gas leak on Very Hard.

I remember it because my character doesn't, because he's dead. He was being chased by a Mirelurk, ran into the room, got toasted by the gas leak, and then killed by the Mirelurk.

Nothing Sweeter Than Redneck Tears: here's the african truck hack

I betcha his friends must be thinking "what a nancy, using TWO beams to jack up his truck."
 
2009-05-22 03:01:16 PM
That IS page 1.
 
2009-05-22 03:02:44 PM
That human sling shot... here's my thought process as I watched the video:

1. That looks dumb.
2. I bet you'd get wicked whip lash from that...
3. OH MY GOD LOOK HOW FAR BACK THEY'RE PULLING HER!!!
4. HOLY CRAP THAT LOOKS DANGEROUS!!!
5. Kinda want...

I'm still laughing at the V-8 chainsaw. It made my day.
 
2009-05-22 03:07:01 PM
"Farksaw was taken"

That made stuff come out of my nose.
 
2009-05-22 03:08:43 PM
I've been enjoying the CRACKED lists ever since somebody put one up on Fark. The writing is pretty funny.

I'm totally building a super-soaker flamethrower.

/For the zombies, man...the zombies.

No, man. Then you just have flaming zombies. You never use a flamethrower on a zombie.
 
2009-05-22 03:11:44 PM
No McGyver picture ? Fark, I'm thoroughly disappointed.
 
2009-05-22 03:12:18 PM
Should be 7 new ways Darwin will turn up.
 
2009-05-22 03:12:43 PM
Actually, I've made one of those, and if I had enough money, I probably would have made the human slingshot (I did make a slingshot out of my sister's swingset and shot one of my friends out of it. Good times).
 
2009-05-22 03:15:46 PM
I'm taking bets on how long it takes before we see a Fark article of some moron setting his house on fire by using that supersoaker trick on a wasp nest.

On the other hand, that Big Wheel scares the everloving heebie jeebies out of me. Felt like I was on acid while watching that.
 
2009-05-22 03:15:58 PM
Damn the slingshot looks fun. I'd probably add some "safety" cords that had less tension than the main ones just so it wouldn't totally lose control if one snapped. Assuming the snapping cord doesn't hit you.

/holy crap they pulled her back far
 
2009-05-22 03:16:27 PM
consciousNOT: "Farksaw was taken"

FTFA: According to the U.S. Product Safety Commission there are over 28,000 chainsaw injuries in America every year. According to Robert Andrews, that number is laughably low.

This too
 
2009-05-22 03:17:47 PM
I'm amazed at the sheer insanity that is the human slingshot. I don't think there's enough beer and/or seeing people do it that could make me try that contraption.
 
2009-05-22 03:18:09 PM
radioman_: I'm still laughing at the V-8 chainsaw. It made my day.

I have to vote for it, too, just for the totally absurd impracticality of the thing.
There's no reason to build something like that other than the sheer awesomeness of it.

#7 Super Soaker Flamethrower

Dr. Steel approves. (new window)


I think Mythbusters did a few of these... I remember seeing the human slingshot (didn't work so well) and the sawdust cannon (worked great!).

It worked for Gordon Freeman!

I don't recall Gordon Freeman ever using a flamethrower. Heh.

You could set zombies on fire with the "traps" in HL2, but the tougher ones would just run through them on fire.

My only qualm about the supersoaker idea is: wouldn't the gasoline eventually start to dissolve the plastic? That might not be such a good thing...
