Cracked Round-Up: Life Lessons About Drinking Edition

Based on the demographics of our readers, a great many of you are just now at the beginning of a long and beautiful journey. We're talking, of course, about drinking. The first few years of your drinking career are likely to involve watery beer and terrible liquor. But one day you'll all find yourselves in your own apartment with your own blender. And you'll suddenly realize that the only things standing between you and alcoholic smoothies are a pile of fruit, some ice and the cheapest liquor possible. When that day comes, Cracked would like to remind you that grinding aspirin up in your daquiris will not prevent hangovers. If we'd only known that two nights ago we wouldn't be stuck spending our weekend trolling the border for a new batch of Interns.


It's been a banner week at Cracked. First Adam Brown explained why you'll have a terrible time taking the Waverunner out to a fireworks show this weekend. Chris Bucholz took a look at why Google's self-driving car will be the death of man. Soren Bowie called your favorite fictional characters out for being self-hating monsters. Brockway once more tried to warn the world about Mario Lopez, Oldest of the Old Ones. John Cheese discussed the bad advice everyone pretends isn't bullshit and Michael Swaim heralded the dawning of the age of ladies.
