We're Back!

Why are we back after a long hiatus?

Because people keep ripping us off.

Remember our Life Lists? Thanks to the internet archive, you can see the archived version from 2006.

We liked that one. So did someone else. A guy named "Neugin". You can see how he ripped us off here.

Remember the old beer article?

Neugin ripped that one off, too.

Again, thanks to the internet archive, you can see the our original archived version here.

Remember 15 Forgotten Country Songs? Neugin sure did. On that same page he also ripped off some old Little Known Facts as well as some 15 Signs You Aren't Famous.

He even tried submitting our articles to other websites. And tried to get paid for our work.

Cute, eh?

But that guy isn't the only one.

Speaking of those Little Known Facts, another liar chose to use those and pass them off as his own. A guy named "DOOMER" decided to claim "here are a couple of my own".

Which is odd for DOOMER to do...considering it wasn't the first time he poached an article, but previously he didn't claim credit.

Here you can see someone named "MOS95B" stealing our My Experiment With Invisibility article....and passing it off as his own. Actually, he stole a fair amount of articles and posted them as his own.

Unfortunately, we aren't the only ones. Even big brand names like Cracked have to deal with content theft. Of course, they had an interesting way of dealing with it.

We got tired of shit like this, so we brought the site back.

So we will probably get back into the swing of writing new stuff. But for now, here is the evidence that too often the shit that makes you laugh wasn't written by the guy who claims he wrote it.

If you find anymore comedy poachers, send 'em our way.

Visit Belgium.

I am assuming that you are asking us to review Belgium similar to our reviews of Norwegia, Sweden, and Finland among others.

Although, I guess it is possible you are an employee of the Belgian Tourist Bureau drumming up business.
