* ItMakesSenseInContext: The comments section for [[http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/4-creepy-new-apps-clearly-designed-by-serial-killers/ this]] article about creepy phone apps appears to be completely nonsensical, with most top voted posts being snarky remarks about the lack of content in the article and referencing the letters "ph". Turns out, when the article was uploaded, an error caused it to be initially published with only the letters "ph" (for placeholder) appearing. Naturally, the Cracked regulars had a field day.

Forcing a high sugar diet onto mental patients brought about modern dentistry practices. One man's torment of baby monkeys not only single-handedly started the animal rights movement, but also completely reinvented child welfare and modern adoption practices across the world (making orphanages completely obsolete.) The inventor of Gynecology operated numerous times on the slaves he owned, and never once uses anesthetics to help their pain during the op or during recovery. Yeah, the sanity of those scientists is certainly questioned in the article.
