    Poor old Atom writers, trying to write like those geniuses at Cracked and failing miseably. Sucks to be Atom...

    I dunno. The nun-chuck lighter/flashlight does seem pretty nifty.

    Atom trying to look and feel like cracked.

    Too bad it still sucks in this regard.

    The list style is overdone as it is. But a poorly written and not really funny one at that? No excuses.

    Stop posting Atom`s crap.

    Ok the guy says the nunchuck lighter isn`t awesome be cause
    "Most people just end up alternately smacking themselves in the head or crotch with them."

    Dude, that right there puts them in the highest order of awesome. You fail, turn in your testicles.

    oh noes, its frum atom and not cracked wich iz teh best0re5t webzit evah no mater how crap ther blogs r! letz al rater thiz bad cus itz not frum craked!!!1!11!1!!!11!

    Seriously people, grow up. I find it extremely sad that you can have a dislike for everything on a certain website without even looking first. I personally though this was pretty good. It was no worse than any of cracked endless top ten lists (most of which are actually boring and drag on).

    Just give things a chance, jeez. oh noes sumnbody els made a list!1!!!1!1!1! flaym waaar!!

    I don`t know how good of an idea it would be to fill a nunchuck with flammable/combustable material when it`s made to be slammed into things. Oh ya where`s the segway?

    I think the mods might be asleep. Maybe they had an IAB mod party last night or something?

    Dumb, just a waste. I thought it would be from Cracked and be funny. I should have known it was crap when I saw it was from Atom.

    Wow, Atom, I`m impressed. I actually laughed. It would`ve been nice to see the unquestioned master of disappointing ideas - the Segway - on there, but it was a good list nonetheless.

    One of the other supposed benefits of the RLM is to "sync your creative behavior" with your “creative leg shake beat.” And if reading that baffling sentence made you realize that something this pointlessly insane just has to come from Japan, then congratulations, you win a trophy! Unfortunately, that trophy is a crying schoolgirl doll being raped my a wind-up octopus. It, loses a little something in translation.

    My friend and I were watching lightning one night and were talking about how difficult it was to capture it with his 35mm camera. After some thought, we came up with the idea of a fully automatic camera. We were so excited we started to go off on how cool it would be, then the sad realization hit us like a ton of bricks. We just decribed a movie camera.

    even if the iposture was changed from electric shock to vibration, imagine ur reaction when u suddenly feel something vibrating inside ur shirt... i would freak out at first then realized that i made a fool out of myself for putting it on the first place and being embarrassed around alot of people coz im inside the train right now and i twitched, which made the people around me "apparently sleeping" freak out too.

    jeez wierd inventions... the fundies turned me on tho.. lol
