There are many Pinterest boards, but only our celebration of gaming has sweet Final Fight GIFs.
Just don’t let him untangle your earbuds.
When they called it Final Fight, they meant FINAL.
#5. Capcom Ends 90 Percent of Arcade Games With Absolute Murder
The villains of Final Fight disposed of their defeated enemies in a suitably cartoonish fashion. This wouldn’t necessarily have been traumatizing on its own. It’s no worse than a Bugs Bunny cartoon. But there’s something about the way Haggar tried to blow out that bomb’s fuse. There’s so much fear and panic in his face — you know he wants to live, and it is only your miserly quarter-guarding that is dooming him.
When a group of slacker friends working at a debt collection agency gains amazing superpowers, they will stop at nothing to avoid using them. Because becoming a superhero just sounds like a lot of hard work.
See Antiheroes on Cracked starting this Monday!
longing for my Batman… but where is he? (with rexybexy)
I finally got my Catwoman shirt from cracked, but all I could think of was Batman.
princeBatman will come!
(At least, you can get the shirt itself. We can’t promise you’re even half as good at rocking it.)
You don’t even need to see Aladdin 3 to enjoy the latest After Hours (about why the whole Aladdin universe is secretly horrifying), because we watched it for you.
You laugh but that’s next level keeping your eye on the ball.
No, that’s not one of the plagues of Egypt. It’s actually creepier.
#6. A River of Poison Blood
The Rio Tinto (Red River) in Spain has had a shitty time ever since humanity turned up. We’re not indulging in hyperbole, here; Homo sapiens have been dumping pollutants in the river for over 5,000 years, a number you may recognize as five times the combined duration of the Roman Empire and the Egyptian Empire. … The area was first mined by the Iberians and Tartessians in the third millennium B.C., and it remains a viable source of copper even today. Over time, it acquired its characteristic red color from heavy metals that crept in as a side effect of mining. The color’s not all that trickled in, either. The river is actually even more lethal than its uninviting appearance suggests. The pH of the water hovers around 2, placing it on par with stomach acid. Yes, Rio Tinto could literally digest you.
For some people, great power means NO responsibility. See why in our next Cracked Studios series, premiering Monday!
“I hate birds. They’re boring, we have absolutely nothing in common, and they are that specific type of up-close ugly that’s usually just for human gums and newborns. But over Fourth of July weekend, I put aside my hatred and went bird watching as part of a proud tradition I started four years ago wherein I write a column about animals while consuming uncomfortable amounts of alcohol.” — Soren Bowie
I packed a camera, a notebook, a birding guide from the library (that I was unquestionably the first person to ever open), and a CamelBak full of booze. My wife was kind enough to burn a Saturday driving me and keeping me focused along the way when I lost interest or tried to climb on stuff instead.
I have transcribed everything I wrote (minus spelling errors and gibberish) about my adventure in that weepy discharge of waste Los Angeles pretends is a river and the only animals dumb enough to splash around in it. Other than me, obviously.
