6 Great Board Games (For Ruining Friendships)

6 Great Board Games (For Ruining Friendships)

I played a lot of board games growing up, because I was an aggressively unathletic kid who appreciated any socially acceptable excuse to play with toys, and games are essentially toys with rules (this is a phase I have yet to grow out of). And competition is an integral part of most games, so a certain amount of skullduggery among friends is to be expected. However, there are some games, regardless of how fun or awesome they may be, that seem to have been designed for the explicit purpose of ruining friendships. The following board games are virtually guaranteed to leave you and your friends feeling so bitter that the rules might as well read “Stuff corpse shit into an electric toaster and leave it cooking in the center of the table while players take turns screaming racism into each other’s open mouths until both slots pop up and scald everyone’s faces with zombie diarrhea.” Read more on Cracked…

5 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Ass-Kicked Their Way To Fame

The next time you see a celebrity walking down the red carpet surrounded by scary-looking guys in black suits, pay attention to those muscleheads: One of them could become a bigger star than the jackass he or she is protecting.

6 Ridiculous Sex Myths (You Probably Believe)

You’d think that by now, we as a species would have pretty much figured out sex, what with Hollywood and the Internet constantly pumping us full of messages on the subject — and we all know that if there are two things that can be universally trusted, those two things are Hollywood and the Internet.

4 Most Horrifying Marriages Between Fans And Their Idols

Being a fan is a difficult thing. You’ll find a musician or an actor or (more often than not) an Internet writer whose work you really respond to and suddenly feelings of creative or professional admiration turn into feelings of love and attraction. For some fans, the line between “I really appreciate the art you make” and “I guess I’m probably in love with you” gets blurry, and that can be dangerous if the object of your fandom isn’t all he’s cracked up to be. Or if he’s Elvis. Read more at Cracked…

6 Movie Special Effects That Have Gotten Worse Over Time

Remakes are a tricky business. If you make a bad one, everyone will hate you, and if you make a good one, the fans of the original film will still hate you. I’m not personally against the good ones, because I was under the impression that movies are not real life and thus aren’t going to damage me emotionally with all of their remake sacrilege.

I am against bad filmmaking in general, though. I feel that technological development has given us a lot of chances to improve movies, and when someone squanders it all, we have every right to tell them that they have ruined something. In the case of these six remakes, the filmmakers definitely had the tools to assemble visually inspiring creations. But with great power comes no real responsibility, and these films are examples of what happens when you take years of progress and decide that you’d be better off without them.

5 Unsolved Mysteries Of Everyday Life (That Make No Sense)

There is a vast and terrible alien conspiracy at work. Sinister forces thrum beneath our very feet, toiling away in an effort to erode our human society and replace it with their own. I know this for a fact. I have evidence. Look no further than the unassuming hot dog: Better and worse comedians than I have noted that they come in packs of eight, while buns come in packs of six. This is just the tip of the iceberg. We shall go deeper. If there are not malevolent beings secretly sabotaging our society, then why in the ever-loving fuck … Read more at Cracked…
