    How is the fact that the food doesn't decompose desperately unhealthy in and of itself? I hear 'preservatives' and 'chemicals' all over the place in relation to this but no mention of the fact that the burgers contain two really solid preservatives already, fat and salt, and there's a fairly simple moisture vs surface-area component to bacterial growth. But, taken in moderation, short of extreme sensitivities to fat and/or salt, you'll likely be fine.

    And now I want a burger in the worst way.
    You're forgetting that McDonald's is a giant, faceless, evil corporation. Ergo, everything they produce must be scientifically designed to kill us.

    science bois please help me out. feel so disgusted at the baseness of the article and the general love of scandal that drives this type of newspaper, but if there were solid medical links... well. would be the most disgusting sports science story.

    Interesting irony that the voice of inventor of the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell, hasn't been heard since his death. Well, wait no longer!

    Playback: 130-Year-Old Sounds Revealed | National Museum of American History

    A direct recording of Alexander Graham Bell's voice - Filtered Version - YouTube!

    Pretty cool bit of science they've done there.

    EDIT: couple of paper on the tech behind the man behind the technique behind the sofa.

    and you know they're all true. Why would a sensationalist list-based semi-comedy website ever lie?

    Yeah.

    tbh, Cracked annoys me these days. For a while there, it was funny-ish but now it's re-branded itself as some quasi-self help news source, psychobabble all up in here. Taking it seriously would be a huge mistake but a lot of bro's/MRA's seem to treat it as a serious source of info.

    So much AWTA.

    Nowadays I just click on the articles that have the wtf factor about them instead of stuff like "4 Good Manners It's Time To Stop Pretending We Care About", "5 Popular Self-Help Tips That Actually Hurt Your Career and "5 Things in Life You're Never Really Prepared For".

    I liked the lego one the other day.

    But the site needs to bring back the monsters, space rockets and explosions.

    I actually don't mind a few new agey advice articles once in a while because the likes of David Wong are pretty good at ripping into shunts in an entertaining way, but they tend to overdo them.

    I want explosions.

    I also hate their obsession with comic books. Oh and anything they do on sport is pretty annoyingly American biased, but that's to be expected.

    Can't stop visiting the site though, good time waster.

    Well, IN's legislative branch once almost passed a law defining pi around 3.2 for commercial purposes.

    Why not, I say. Enough with the spreadsheet stuff, already, we need more eyeballs.

    $2.5 billion spent to graffiti a penis on mars. Is it money well spent? Probably not. Is it ****ing awesome? Hell yes.
