A 30-Second Guide to How the Gay Marriage Ruling Affects You

By David Wong | 1,332,256 Views

In case you missed it, or just saw people screaming about it on Facebook, the U.S. Supreme Court just ruled that the federal government will now recognize gay marriages as legitimate (specifically, that the Defense of Marriage Act that had been preventing it was unconstitutional). BUT individual states are still free to pass their own laws.

Millions of people, most of whom are neither gay nor looking to get same-sex married, are loudly asking on the Internet how exactly this case impacts their life.

4 Bizarre Things Found in the NSA's Secret Internal Magazine

By David Reidy | 236,313 Views

Some of you had literally never heard about the National Security Agency (NSA) prior to recent revelations that they are so far up your ass that you can text them to find out the next time you can expect to take a shit. So what's it like to work at the NSA? Apparently it's really, really weird.

Comedians are intolerable. From a distance they're fun, doing jokes under a spotlight, or in bars, or from the back corner of their hay-lined cages, but spending time alone with even one is exhausting. They need an awful lot of attention, and worst of all, they never, ever stop. Point in case, for every video we make at Cracked, you only get to see about 10 percent of the jokes because the rest are buried in sections of the script no one will ever notice. It's unfair to even compare them to icebergs because icebergs at least amount to some sort of point. No, these are just burned jokes, and not always good jokes, that the writers hide in scripts for no reason other than to make themselves giggle at their own cleverness. At least that was the case until now. We compiled all of them for you here, like a Cracked Video Easter Egg no one asked for, or potentially wanted. So enjoy, I guess.

Here's a group of children who should make you feel shame the next time the bogeyman of common sense prevents you from attempting to lift a car over your head.
