I'm Cracked!

I’ve been a big fan of CRACKED.com for a long time (America’s Only Humor & Video Site, Since 1958!) and one of the reasons is their grasp of Science and Tech – read: Nerd stuff. It’s clear that the writers have a good understanding of these things that the average person just doesn’t have. It’s refreshing to see humor that doesn’t need to be dumbed down (much.)

So, as a treat for those of you not familiar with CRACKED, here are some of my favorite articles for us computerphiles.
