This piece was written by the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.
A thousand years ago, on the Fourth of July 1776, brave American revolutionaries gathered up that evil British tea and hurled it into Boston Harbor to protest England's intolerable 15% tea tax, which had caused Paul Revere and Patrick Henry to chop down a cherry tree (and refuse to lie about it) just days earlier. In honor of this sacred American holiday, we have special deals in the Cracked Shop, where gizmos and gadgets that are already on sale can now be snagged for a patriotic 15% off their already marvelous prices (use the code FIREWORK15, FYI). You may quibble with our history here, but isn't fudging the past to accommodate good deals what America is all about?
Every kitchen needs at least two knives. You need a 4" paring knife for the finer cutting, and a 7.5" chef's knife for all the chopping that makes your ancestors look down and go "Whoa." This Precision Starter Chef Knife Set comes with ergonomic handles, nonstick coated blades, and lightweight Belgravian "Lightedge" to maximize culinary convenience.
Normally $49.90, you can snag yours in the Cracked Shop today for a revolutionary $25.42 with code FIREWORK15.
July Fourth is great, but it's also lodged in the sweaty navel of summer. So how better to celebrate comfortably than with a smart personal air conditioner? EvaSMART uses natural evaporative cooling, rather than climate-destroying refrigerant gases, to keep the air around you as nice as possible.
You ever try to fire up the barbecue for your summer grill, only to realize that there's something wrong with the propane tank? You'd take the apparatus apart and investigate, but there's simply no way to get in there without ripping the whole thing apart, so you end up just ordering pizza instead. If only you had a nifty screwdriver like the SpeedHex FlipOut.
With 380 different positions and 360 degrees of orbital rotation (plus an additional 360 degrees of flexibility and an LED work light), the Flip Out Rechargeable Screwdriver is guaranteed to save your summer at least once.
A true American doesn't need to plug their cables into the wall to charge their devices. A true American gathers power from the cable itself with the 1.5M Battery Lightning Cable.

Future generations will mock us for buying $2,000 computers and using them to check Facebook and whine about superhero movies on Reddit.

Plus it's refurbished, meaning it has all the reliability of a new computer at a fraction of the price -- and that's before applying the Cracked Shop discount.
