Every year, several Cracked staffers and columnists team up to build an entry for the International Science Fair. We've traditionally a volcano team, but the mounting deaths almost got us disqualified in 2010. We've switched our efforts to building a shrink ray- which works! Uncontrollably! On every person within one hundred meters! Most of the shrunken were interns, so there hasn't been much pressure to build an enlarging ray. HR ended up adopting a whole bunch of cats to take care of the problem. But Swaim started selling arms (in the form of toothpicks) and now the interns have banded together into a crude tribe of night hunters. They've already bloodied the ankles of several janitors and filled the break room microwave with poo. We're debating between fumigation or a paintball crusade now.

Soren started our week off by doing what he does best: frightening women and changing Hollywood forever. Christina was next with the six most wildly off-base things you believe about quiet people. And speaking of 'quiet people', Chris Bucholz isn't. Which is why he spent his week flirting with the Occupy Wall Street protesters. John Cheese provided another dispatch from adulthood, with a look at why moving always bleeds your checkbook dry. Brockway took a sad look at his Batman qualifications through the sober lense of Arkham City, while Dan O'Brien raged at the terrible relationship advice found in our shallowest movies.

6 Absurd Pirate Myths Everyone Believes Thanks to Movies
There is a conspiracy out there to make pirates seem less awesome than they totally were.

Notable Comment: "Nice try, Cracked, but you can't sway me with your silly "facts." Everyone knows pirate history was full of talking parrots and the Boo Box."

Interesting fact, Turniciple- we have a Boo Box installed in the Cracked break room right now. It saw regular use until a junta of angry copy-writers locked Brockway in there. Every critter that bit him was dead within an hour.
