HOLY TOASTED CHEESE SANDWICHES!

I spend most of my life in real life, so if I take a while to respond, I apologize.   You could send me stuff. I don't know why you would, but you could.   This is a blog that has the same name of my personal website circa 1997, but is really nothing like that website in that I provide almost no original content to this blog. Sometimes I am clever, but not right now, and I certainly don't expect you to hang around while I think of something clever to put on this blog.

(I also run another blog: Billy Joel, Applied)

This is the best thing about which I’ve learned today.

Scientists Develop Squid-Inspired Camouflage
“Researchers have developed systems that can automatically sense and blend into their surroundings by mimicking the methods of cephalopods such as octopus, squid and cuttlefish.
And the “optoelectronic camouflage” works stupendously just as long as it’s situated directly in front of a zebra.
So far, the scientists have only built a one-inch square prototype that works in black, white and shades in between, sort of like your grandfather’s TV. But the systems can be scaled up and made to work across the color spectrum, according to a statement from Cunjiang Yu, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Houston and lead author of the paper published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.”

mr-cappadocia asked: So why does Cracked CONSTANTLY push Feminist propaganda so hard? And let's not bullshit ourselves. You do. Just yesterday you published five articles. Two specifically referenced either Feminism or Feminist backed statistics. Conversely whenever you cover anything related to the opposition you not only mislead about their views... you straight up fucking lie about them and people let you get away with it because you're a "humor magazine". So I'm wondering why you propagandize *so hard*. Why?


Answer:

Because we’re true believers! 

Let me take this moment to say how Cracked could have gone another direction 7 or 8 years ago, a more Maximy, Booby Gallery of the Day direction if not for the steadfast resistance of David Wong and Jack O’Brien. I barely acknowledge the side that opposes feminism, but Wong goes out of his way to understand people who are mad at feminists, and he writes about those views with more sensitivity and understanding that I could ever muster. 

To sum up: We don’t have an explicit agenda but if one comes across, It’s not one I’m ashamed of. 

Kristi is a liar. I remember the meeting where the Cracked brain trust sat down and was like “From now on let’s occasionally post articles that either directly or conspiratorially tangentially support equal rights for women so we can accomplish our ultimate end goal: Hack into the penis of every man and make it a smaller penis, or a penis that is otherwise laughable for a different reason upon which we all agree. It almost sounds TOO easy,” Jack said, as he (via the mainframe) hacked a young Robert Brockway’s penis. “I think my wife deserves my respect,” the now-neutered Brockway yelped.
