If you're one of the poor, demented souls who didn't love the new Arrested Development, Gladstone's column might just show you the error of your ways. And since you're the kind of person who can't appreciate fine comedy, you'll probably benefit from Felix Clay's guide to ruining the mood during sex. Tom Reimann looked at the mistakes every movie monster makes while Chris Bucholz handled a very dicey stolen laundry situation. Soren Bowie shared a story about the pre-Internet origins of stupid Youtube comments and Brendan McGinley showed what happens when superhero reboots go wrong. Robert Brockway got literary on us by listing the most unjustly overshadowed sci-fi classics. John Cheese explained how regular guys ruin their first impression with women, followed by Winston Rowntree's proof that video games are the greatest art form. Ali Reed ended things on a high note with the most baffling slang phrases on earth.

WORLD SHAPING
5 Insane Strategies That Won Elections and Changed History
Damn. Romney and Obama really should have stepped up their game last year. We didn't get one rat argument out of that whole election.


Notable Comment: "the idiom is "ƒ¾etta er rƒºsƒ­nan ƒ­ pylsuendanum" - there is a raisin at the end of the sausage. It refers to a kind of sausage which had raisins in it, and the raisins would frequently collect at one end of the sausage, so the person who got that was lucky. It's used in contexts similar to "the icing on the cake", to indicate an unexpected bonus, and is therefore not at all baffling."

We're big fans of other cultures, anaris. But who in the crotch-bleeding fuck puts raisins in sausage?
