And I say that as an /x/phile.
Accept the madness
no wai!
I'm glasses.
I can't believe people care about 4chan.

Actually, I don't mind that people care about 4chan, it's that people care about /b/ in particular that pisses me off. That was always a shit place.
Always, somewhere, someone is fighting for you. As long as you remember them, you are not alone.
Accept the madness
but without 4chan I wouldnt have discovered this place
In that case, they did something constructive for once.

Note the "for once."
Don't make me angry.
What about the Scientology thing?

Here's where you can find everything *I've* written/made for Cracked. Too bad the editors actually created some glaring mistakes here and there* that they won't fix for me.

  • Calling spiders insects.
Dude, you wrote the 7 Bogeymen list? Holy crap, that's one of my favorites.

EDIT: And the worldwide vampires one! Remind me why I haven't talked to you before.

@Tsun: I suppose that qualifies, too. But shit like that epilepsy raid and crap?

Someone really needs to reign them in if they do crap like that again, although nowadays they seem much meeker and weaker, so perhaps such measures are not necessary.
They just wrote an article about Dropped a Bridge on Him.

This is not the first time I have a feeling that they just picked 5 examples from a TV Tropes page.

I see the Awesomeness.
I know more than a few Cracked editors are Tropers. Scythe Mantis is the only one that jumps to mind though.
An article by a woman. Oh my, just look at the comments...

Also, another one of her articles - this one is too great to leave unlinked.

Edit: the first link did not italize, so I cut it shorter.

Eh, Cracked is sometimes is funny, but I don't think that constantly saying "fucking" is funny. And its writing seems to expect that everyone is American.

And as liking of "creepy" critters, I don't like their "listing five so called 'horrifying' animal" lists... Some of them are pretty tame..(fricking coconut crab... I like those). I don't like it how some or jokes are "Augh! Screw animal activists! Lets kill this animal I won't ever see in my life because it creeps me out!"

...Though, some of lists ARE funny, but crappy ones are REALLY crappy.

Time to change the style, for now

@Magus: It's an alright article, but I would contest some points. Mostly, I hthink he's exaguarating certian things to make it fit, like the part about the nipple gate and sex. There is a order of magnitude in differnce between a accidental indecent exposure, and your loved one commmiting serial infidelity. Janet Jackson hadn't explicitly agreed not to show herself or only show herself to someone in particular only. A relationship is an agreement between the participants in it.

Also, the part 5. I would argue that there's also a magnitude of difference in saying "you will be punished after death for all eternetity" and "no-one gets any punishement or reward except what they get in life". And for part 9, the problem with religious moral is, that you accept it for some parts, you have to accept all the core parts, even the ones that don't make sense, because they are holy. There are, and can be, moral systems not dictated by religion. The article itself (and other reserach done on the subject) show that Atheists are no more likely to be criminal than religious people.

"Looking contemplative"
Fastfood Meals for Failures. I love how self-deprecating and nihilistic the writer is, all of the fastfood abominations are likened to slow, painful suicide, particularly DOB'S Toilet-Bombing Heart-molester; the "big fat food Frisbee that killed God."

Paranoia fuel (especially the last one).
One day, Cracked will make an article about insane TV Tropes Pages. On that day, the internet will collaps upon itself into a singularity of life absorbtion.

No, "Top 6 weirdest lists"

That'd be no different from any other article that keeps linking you around Cracked. If Cracked linked to TV Tropes multiple times....

*cocks imaginary gun*

And hey look, they're copying us wholesale again.

Granted its very obvious that ripped off of us since they put a link to our site, but isn't it kinda what we wanted? To make people aware of tropes?

As long as they keep coming up with interesting things instead of just referencing the site.
