Sadly all I need is a suit that is a size or two too small and I could play him for Halloween.  Can't sing tho'.  I wouldn't be able to project my voice either.

Crap, wrong thread.

Remember when Cracked was an edgy alternative to Mad Magazine and not a shiatty 5 item, two page  list website of useless shiat?

Yes, but can human organs be turned into cotton candy?

No.  Was that in some parallel universe?

I still liked this article, and many others of theirs. It would be nice to be on one page, but a single mouse click isn't really a lot to ask if I like the article.

I was promised cotton candy.
 
2014-06-15 10:23:16 PM
A cotton candy pancreas would be ironic.

With popcorn eyes and licorice hair.

So, when I'm stuck on a glacier with MacGyver, I could eat my own kidney?

I kind of want to mail them a thesaurus so they don't have to use he same adjectives in every headline:
"The five most insane yadda yaddas...."

Great, so scientiscians are taking cues from the Killer Klowns from out space? Did they reverse engineer their ship in area 51? Where's JefGold bloom?om

Still better than a couple dozen Daily Mail greenlights a day.
 
2014-06-15 11:47:58 PM
Still better science reporting than 90% of major news outlets.

They do a reasonably good job at Cracked of trying to mix well-sourced information (often with a stronger understanding than other sites actually reporting on science news seem to have) with a humorous tone.

The Cracked formula is a tad annoying -- insert lame jokes and stock photos with jokey captions amidst the actual information -- but if it gets more people to get interested in how cool science really is and how observing the real world can shape major breakthroughs, who are we to complain?

No, it was in a far-away land called the 1970's.

Maybe but once in a while they create a masterpiece or maybe it's because it was a subject I lived through , who knows but this one is great.

And not very accurate in my experience.  Everyone's going to respond a little differently to quitting booze.

For me I generally feel like I'm freezing to death.  I'd get the soaking sweats sometimes when I sleep.
No nightmares, but some pretty farking weird dreams - that is if I can sleep at all
Sloppy diarrhea - quite the opposite of shiatting antlers.
No urges to murder
No blissful high
And feeling extremely tense

YMMV

"Sweetmeats"

Nearly made my sis up-chuck yesterday after lunch by saying just that word. Pork Shanks were the main item.

Creating X-rays with scotch tape astounded me.  How could medical science have passed up such a revolutionary discovery?

Aaaah, scotch tape. You are the Duct Tape of the physics world. Graphene, X-Rays, and you're helpful when our group makes nano-triangle arrays....

I was there.  Cracked wasn't edgy, more a poor quality rip off.

Everything sucks. There are no heroes. Nothing truly good ever happens. This is the law of the Internet.
