10:50 - ANGEL REAPER ..so i was working on my diploma project...one of the tests i was doung is about to finish ...after 11 hours of numbers crunching ...
07:07 - Redn1ght Lol.... I just noticed that my sort-of encyclopedia of mythologies is made in Egypt... A MIRACLE, so many books are printed in China.
04:56 - ScreamingSteelUS Yeah, it seems like Cracked has now overtaken "MAD." Moving online in 2005 was a very smart idea. I've had the chance to peruse some old "MAD"s myself, but I've been a loyal fan of Cracked for six or seven years now.
04:49 - Redn1ght No wonder then! @Screaming. (Only way I knew about MAD was because of seeing some OOLD issues in a second-hand book store and dad showed them there.)
04:43 - ScreamingSteelUS Actually, yes. Cracked began life as one of the many magazines competing for the market "MAD" created. It was the only competitor that managed to survive, and while they now have their own empire, they began as a "MAD" ripoff.
04:36 - Redn1ght Hmm.. I wonder if there's any connection between MAD magazine and Cracked.com.... Their humor is similar to each other in a way.
