Police sketch artists, speed bumps, late-night talk shows and the QWERTY keyboard all have one thing in common: They're shitty ideas that have somehow gained immortality. On this podcast, Cracked editors Jack O'Brien, Dan O'Brien and Robert Evans talk about bad ideas that refuse to go away. We're not being tongue-and-cheek about the "bad" part either -- speed-bumps kill eighty-five people for every life they save and, seriously, have you ever watched Jay Leno? That man is an engine fueled purely by nostalgia.
Watching movies like 'Speed' and 'The Negotiator,' you get the sense that talking a bad guy out of a hostage situation is a lot like being a Jedi.
