    i am a huge fan of cracked and i always find it funny and kinda educational...but this one is really good. there are lots of things that you (and everyone else) learn about life along the way that you wish someone would have told you sooner.

    right now, my teen-aged daughter would do well to read number 10, her sex-starved fuck of a boy friend needs to read number 9, i personally liked numbers 4 and 1...wishing i had read both about 30 years ago.

    enjoy.

    what they should've taught you in school

    Here's the problem: these fantasies were created by adults, as a means of escape from the real world. You, however, have been watching them since you were five--for most of us these were our first impressions of how the adult world works, even if on a subconscious level. You had no context to realize they were bullshit. It sounds frivolous, but that doesn't change the fact that some of you reading this will not survive the long process of learning how different the real world is.

    If it helps, try to remember that you're still one of the one percent of humanity that was born in a time and place where there is such a thing as anesthesia.


    -AND-

    So, because a talk show has to, by necessity, sometimes skew or outright lie about current events in order to maintain the entertainment value of their show, trying to learn about current events by listening to a talk show is like learning physics by watching cartoons.

    Apparently, nobody else on here believed it was worth their time... up until now.
