Here at the Big Bad Blog, we had thought we had grown overtired of humour site Cracked, and its endless (but decreasingly amusing) top-10, top-15, and top-20 lists of things that they just make up.
This week, they have pulled themselves back from the brink of complete-irrelevancy-to-the-Big-Bad-Blog by embracing the trifecta of superheroes, dating websites, and Science! To test claims of dating websites of being able to identify one’s ideal match, Cracked created mock profiles for Wolverine, Cyclops and Jean Grey, and set the sites to work in an attempt to resolve the love triangle.
The account gets extremely humorous when only Wolverine’s profile is flagged as possibly belonging to a fictional character, while those of Cyclops (and Jean Grey) are confirmed as being legitimate.
There is little worse than news stories about what one should do to eat healthy. Take vitamins. Don’t take vitamins. Eat this. Don’t eat this. Everything is contradictory and poorly referenced.
But here’s something interesting — a couple of researchers were perplexed as to why increased vitamin consumption did not lead to better health … and they found that those who are taking vitamins use it as an excuse to make other, unhealthy, choices.
I’m sure this discovery fucks up all sorts of research …
A friend of mine currently works at Starbucks, where (it would seem) some people are upset that the cost of a drink called the Tea Misto has increased. What do customers do when they are upset?
Here at the Big Bad Blog, we are generally fond of the if it feels good, do it philosophy. But sometimes you’re just being an ass to a person who is just doing their job.
