So, yeah. There’s your answer.
For a lot of Americans, that’s a no-risk investment.
#5. Gun Buyback Programs Result in More Guns
Imagine you see a product advertised on late night television that looks awesome, but that you’re not sure you want or need. For example, some new combination lawnmower and treadmill that we’ll call a lawnmill (patent pending). But, you remember that you don’t actually have a lawn, and that 100 percent of treadmills wind up getting turned into expensive coat racks, so you resist the urge to grab the phone. Now imagine that the government has made a promise that they will pay cash money for any unwanted lawnmill (no, wait — treadmower!) you have, no questions asked. Suddenly there’s less financial risk in ordering — if it turns out you don’t want it, you know you have a waiting buyer.

On Tuesday, December 10, Jack, Michael, Soren, Cody, Adam and I will be reading from and signing copies of The De-Textbook at the Barnes and Noble on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
BIG NEWS. On Thursday, December 12, at 7pm, come to Meltdown Comics for the biggest…UPDATE: The Meltdown Comics show is cancelled. I super apologize for getting anyone’s hopes up, but the end of the year makes something like this just too difficult to put together. We will try again in January! I know what a lot of you are thinking: that this is irrefutable proof that Wong, John, Kristi, Brockway, Tom and Cyriaque don’t actually exist, that we created a bunch of self aware computer programs that create content that we publish under various pseudonyms. I want to crush this rumor completely, and I’d ask that you all cooperate by ignoring the fact that, if you rearrange the letters in Tom’s full name, it spells BROCKWAY IS ROBOTS. Those rumors are silly. The event at Barnes and Noble is still on. Come meet Cracked and the After Hours gang and get your books and faces signed!
Hey friends, sorry for the confusion but we will NOT be at Meltdown next week. Catch us on Tuesday in Santa Monica instead!
Don’t worry, Stock Photo Stepmom. John Cheese has your back.
#2. You Learn That There’s Such a Thing as “Too Nice”
Sometimes a movie or TV show will feature a stepparent as a character, and that person is usually presented as less than likeable. A good example of this is every movie ever made that has a stepparent. If it’s not the stepparent being a douchebag, it’s a rebellious little fuckhead kid who has to eventually be convinced that the adult is worthy of respect. … It’s natural to be scared of that idea, especially if you don’t have kids of your own. But in doing so, what often happens is that the stepparent goes the polar opposite direction and becomes overly nice.
