Cracked Round-Up: Middle of Winter Edition

It's cold. It's so ass-bitingly cold that we've started to burn our gasoline instead of huffing it. Maybe when enough of us die corporate will finally agree that heating is a necessary expense in an underwater Arctic base.


Our week kicked off with some job hunting hints from Bucholz that will probably, in reality, get you much worse than just "arrested". Brockway followed up with a trip to the Large Hadron Collider that results in shenanigans. Cody tries to write a Goosebumps novel, but fails spectacularly. Dan O'Brien rounds us off with a retrospective on baffling photoshoppery.

Azureskies says, "Sleep paralysis does not account for EVERY SINGLE GHOST OR DEMONIC OR ALIEN ABDUCTION. Dealing in absolutes when in reality you know absolutely nothing is stupid. Funny article non the less. "

Translation from Crazy to English: I believe in ghosts and demons and aliens and you should to! Refusing to believe in mystic moon men without any hard evidence is closed-minded.
