    6 Bizarre Factors That Predict Every Presidency

    The Washington Redskins enjoy one of the most remarkable reputations in political history due to a little correlation called the "Redskins rule." It's as simple as it is spooky: If the Redskins win their last home game before election day, then the party in power gets to hold on to the White House. If the Redskins lose, no matter how close the game, the opposition party takes over.

    You could write it off as blind chance if, say, it worked for three or four elections ... but the rule has incredibly held true for every damn election since 1940, except one (and we'll get to it in a minute). So this is slowly entering gypsy curse territory.

    Interestingly, 3 of the 6 already point to an Obama victory. This Redskins game on Sunday just got a little more interesting...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Strangely enough there are some odd rules around my penis and the election too.
    Never use a big word when a little filthy one will do.

    This was true until 2004 when Bush was re-elected. So, the Redskins game this Sunday is once again meaningless.

    You may want to consider reading the article before posting about it. This way, you don't comment incorrectly on something that was addressed in the article...

    7 Bizarre Trends That Predict an Economic Collapse

    If you popped out of a time machine at a random moment in history, how would you know whether or not the country was in a recession? There'd be obvious signs, like lots more ads for payday loan joints and offers to buy your gold for pennies on the dollar. But there are less obvious, much weirder clues all around you.

    After all, did you know that when the economy is bad ...

    Thanks, global recession!

    I love this site because it's all factual information, but presented in a comedic format. Plus, all the authors cuss like sailors, which is OK by me anytime...

    Cracked is hilarious. I check it often.

    Wasn't there one four years ago about an octopus or squid that was good at picking elections? I think it went on some kind of amazing run through the primaries and then picked Obama over McCain in the general. Not sure what happened to it, though. Maybe somebody ate it.
