    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Someone other than Seanbaby writes a martial arts article on Cracked, fail ensues

    http://www.cracked.com/article_19654...-fighting.html

    Much of it seems to be distilled from MAP posts by fifteen year olds who are discovering the internet for the first time.
    HEY GUYZ EVER PUNCH IN STREET FIGHT CUZ HAND WILL BRAKE
    Check!
    HEY GUYZ HIGH KICK IS NO GOOD IN WING CHUN WE ARE ONLY KICK BELOW WASTE
    Check!

    It's kind of sad. Cracked, please stick to writing lists of terrifying animals and lesser-known historical figures who did really cool things.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Yeah, read that. I felt like I had to comment on the point that I felt was the worst one, although it was hard to pick just one.

    I got to the second bit, and quit out of disgust.

    For the average Joe like you, attempting the classic knockout blow to the head is distilled stupidity.
    I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate that "trust the expert" bollocks in articles obviously written straight out of someone's ass. Has the feel of the suburbs to it.

    Wow... I've never seen so many pissed off comments on Cracked before. Then again I've never been pissed enough at the article to look at the comments before. So, now I'm off to get drunk and become a criminal, because apparently that's how you learn how to fight for r34l.

    Who knew that using Google as a golden rule for research is a bad idea.

    The thing is, cracked is hardly ever a source for knowledge, but they're usually not that far off while at the same time sounding as wise-assy and preachy.

    I was with him until he stated "Kicks are useless" and then further digressed with "Your opponent knows what's coming".

    Cracked is comedy so, I always laugh when people get pissed because their sources are a bit off. I hope this was poorly done tongue in cheek trolling.

    Well, that is what I am going to believe at any rate.

    Reading something like this makes me question some of Cracked's other articles. As a guy with a pretty good understand of history, I know that a lot of their history stuff is on point. But reading articles like this makes me wonder if some of the other stuff they post is wrong too.
