4 Stupid Ways Everyone Deals With Breakups

4 Stupid Ways Everyone Deals With Breakups

Ahh, l’amour. Or, as the French call it, “le humpy jumpy.” It’s a funny thing us humans do to each other, getting all stupid in love with one another, touching tongues, watching Jennifer Aniston films, and feeling this intense longing for the presence of someone else in a way that curiously wanes over time and sometimes even turns into resentment.

5 Studies That Prove Racism Is Still Way Worse Than We Think

There is a bitter debate over racism these days — specifically, whether or not it still exists in a way that actually matters. The argument against goes something like, “Sure, there are neo-Nazis and KKK and YouTube comment sections out there, but we’ve got a black president, for Christ’s sake! Racism has been banished to the craziest fringes of society.”

6 Weird Ways The World Looks Different When You're Asexual

For the majority of people, sex is the most compelling thing in the world, for obvious “perpetuation of the species” reasons. Sex sells. Sex rules.

Cracked sat down with two of these people to learn a little bit more about what life is like when your anaconda don’t want none, period. Read more on Cracked…

5 Adorable Behaviors That Mean Your Dog Hates You

5 Adorable Behaviors That Mean Your Dog Hates You

Once upon a time, a bunch of prehistoric horror-wolves realized that the clumsy species of spear-flinging monkeys they were snacking on would trade belly rubs and a place by the fire if they occasionally mauled something on command. Since then, man and canine have peacefully waltzed together through the annals of time. Thanks to this relationship, most people think they’re pretty good at understanding dogs: when a pup wags its tail, it’s happy; when it whines, it’s unhappy.
