Weekly Project n°2
Hi all! How are you? I have to say I’m a little ashamed for not having posted anything in such a long time, but then again I figured it wasn’t such a good idea to promise frequent posts when I knew I was going to go on holiday to a place where I have no internet. How was I to post then? Bad timing on my part.
So, continuing with my weekly project I bring to you today a very cool site, were I have spent many hours learning cool, but really not useful stuff, which I love.
This site is called Cracked. What they do is basically have lists with exciting titles and explanations of why that certain things are in that list. Now, I now it sounds dull, but it isn’t. Not when the lists are something like: “The 6 Most Bizarre Things Ever Discovered in Space” or “6 Terrible Ideas That Science Says Will Save the Planet”, which they wont help you at all with your homework, but they are so much fun to read! I love the fact that they are written with humour and sometimes sarcasm, rather than in a formal fashion.
Seriously, I’ve read many lists in this site and they are always very refreshing. They have them on plenty of subjects too, from history to science-fiction to literature, so you just have to take your pick (3 Reasons Why Houdini was Way More Badass Than you Think). And do not get me started on government conspiration and freaky things that someone predicted at one point and it became true. The art of trolling, that has been present in our culture since people discovered that teasing other people was fun, is also recorded in this amazing site (The 6 Greatest Acts of Trolling in the History of Science)
So, for an afternoon of learning deep and useful information, pick a book and read instead of going into this site, that although it has sometimes deep reflection, you wont learn anything for school, but you will know everything about “The 11 Most Retarded Fictional Weapons”.
That’s it for today, I guess.
Take care everyone!
