So I finally figured out what is wrong with me. 

There MUST be more than THAT. 🤔

There is! It all starts out like that. And progresses.

 

Now. Ever since I got an injury from gaming I use custom controls, macros, auto-fire, rapidspin, and all the other novel control methods. Fuck them all if they whine and complain and say I cheat.

It's basically Carpal Tunnel Sydrome because you're constantly bending & twisting your wrist more than usual, and it also happens when you spend many hours "working" with a computer keyboard and mouse.

 

Just take occasional breaks and, even better, rotate your hands as a warm up exercise to loosen the muscles.

You end up with some horrible things when you work with your hands for years. If I close or clench my right hand, I get a painless yet very noticable 'pop' sensation in my little finger. When I release my hand, I then have to then manually move my little finger back with fingers on my other hand it simply won't move back by itself as if it's stuck. Im use to it now but at the same time it will never feel 'normal' to me.

Is Cracked no longer a comedy "Mad Magazine" kind of thing?

"basically, this site was the result of a 2007 merger between the old Cracked magazine and a website I had been running since 1999."

- Jason Pargin

 (He quit as Executive Editor in Feb 2020)

 

Jason Pargin is also known as David Wong who wrote the book John Dies at the End if that helps...It probably doesn't but I thought that was  a great and fun book...It's a little like if Douglas Adams wrote a horror story featuring Harold & Kumar.  Also it was  a movie...You should drink and watch it someday.

 

 

PS:   A while back...I also thought "Cracked.com...WTF??"

It's more of a "Top 10 List" type of thing with a more straight up sarcastic, but truthful, humor.

 

At least it gives Cracked it's own identity than just being some Mad Magazine ripoff we grew up with.

Own identity? Those click bait sites are a dime a dozen and it's just one of many. Saying Cracked was a Mad rip off is like saying Spider-man is a Superman ripoff.

At least most of the stuff you find on Cracked.com is true, which is more that can be said of most of those similar sites that publish stuff that is twisted or outright false.

That being said it's not 100% at all.

imagine being so fragile you can't handle other people's opinions so you insult and ignore people so they can't respond. Pathetic.
