34 Things (Almost) Everyone Is Wrong About

We're making memes smarter. So can you. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get started.

Now that the holidays are here, you're probably going to find yourself cornered at least once by people looking for spirited debates. And by that we mean they'll want to yell at you about politics.

Not completely unlikely, of course. That all comes down to how insufferable you are.
