Cracked's week began with one bold man's quest to stalk his ex-girlfriend through the tender medium of wedding photography. Next, Chris Bucholz taught marketers how to fuck their customers and get away with it, while Seanbaby asked a hard question. What if Green Lantern was a pervert?

Notable Comment:

"I know, dude! When you hear about the criticisms, you're like, "come on, it can't possibly be *that* gay" and then it pretty much is. But it really is great, I've highlighted and underlined and taken notes all over my copy, and I am rarely moved to do that.

POINTLESS EXCELLENCE
7 Amazing (Yet Uninspiring) Feats of Human Endurance

Proof that not everyone should be told to follow their dreams.



Notable Comment:

SandroTheMaster posed a question; "So please answer me. How exactly is any of these any more pointless and useless than swimming across the ocean or doing a marathon? Out than the fact that each and every one of these cases is orders of magnitude less dangerous and life-threatening?"

And thesounddefense responded, "Here's an experiment for you: go up to two different women at the bar. Tell one of them you managed to swim across the Atlantic. Tell the other you memorized pi to 70,000 places. Which woman is going home with you?"
