you-might-be-zombie-book is our generation’s MAD magazine…even if MAD magazine is still around. Cracked took a page out of history and decided to compile a tome – a compendium if you will – of weird, ridiculous, completely true facts that won’t get you laid, but they definitely have a very good chance of getting you free drinks. At the very least, you’ll be the center of attention at the next party. What sort of unimaginably awesome information could be contained within? Try these on for size: 50% of humans are infected with a parasite that can take over the brain. Francis Crick came up with the most important discovery in genetics history while on LSD. Do you need to know any of these absurd facts? Of course not, but that doesn’t mean you won’t want to.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
