Adam Ruins Gladiators

Adam Ruins Gladiators

In this clip from Adam Ruins Everything‘s episode An Ancient History of Violence, the show points out that gladiators were actually treated and governed much like today’s combat athletes. Still, a small percentage of them did meet their end in the arena.

Adam Ruins Hospitals

Adam Ruins Hospitals

Adam Ruins Everything explains why healthcare is expensive in the US and practically anywhere else that has medical insurance. Hospitals jacked up their prices so that insurance companies get “discounts”, i.e. the original prices. Check out the show’s sources here.

Adam Doesn’t Ruin Pregnancy

Adam Doesn’t Ruin Pregnancy

Adam Ruins Everything kicks off its second season by debunking myths about babies and pregnancy. Like how it’s actually perfectly fine and highly probable for a woman to get pregnant in her late 30s. Check out his sources here.

Watching TV is Work

Watching TV is Work

(PG-13: Language) “Good god, you’re still watching The Walking Dead! That isn’t even essential viewing!” CollegeHumor pokes fun at one of the most time-consuming rituals of adult life: watching TV shows so you can remain cool and up-to-date.

Tips about Taxes

Tips about Taxes

(PG-13: Language) “…don’t worry. You’re not gonna be audited. Because come on. Audited? You? No. “ It’s almost time for one of the great adult rituals: filing taxes. It’s complicated, depressing and archaic. CollegeHumor is here to make things worse.

The Cost of “Free” Websites

The Cost of “Free” Websites

Adam Ruins Everything digs a little deeper into the obvious – that free online services sell our data to advertisers. On one hand, targeted ads sustain the free stuff we enjoy (like this website). On the other hand, we don’t know just how much of our data is kept and by whom.

Why Weed is Illegal

Why Weed is Illegal

Can marijuana impair your thinking? Of course it can. But so can alcohol, yet beer is served in stadiums and weed is sold in parking lots because of – wait for it – politics and racism. Adam Ruins Everything traces Western society’s devolving outlook on the herb.

The App That Does Everything Poorly

The App That Does Everything Poorly

(PG-13: Language) “At Omni, we care more about putting other apps out of business than we do about making a good, simple, useful app.” CollegeHumor pokes fun at bloated apps and services that keep adding functions in a bid to lock us in to their ecosystem.

The Facebook Sad Story Guy

The Facebook Sad Story Guy

We all know someone like the sad clown in this twisted CollegeHumor sketch. You know, the dark soul who insists on only posting somber and heartbreaking stuff on their Facebook feed? Dude, they make anti-depressants for this sort of thing.

Adam Ruins Eyeglasses

Adam Ruins Eyeglasses

Most sunglasses and even prescription glasses are manufactured, sold and even prescribed by people who work for just one company – Luxottica. As one would expect from a near-monopoly, Luxottica jacks up prices and stifles or outright buys out its competitors.

Adam Ruins Weddings

Adam Ruins Weddings

After ruining engagement rings, Adam Conover continues railing against the romance industry. American weddings used to be a simple home affair, but now they’re displays of wealth perpetuated by intense and manufactured social pressure.

iPhone 7: Just Worse

iPhone 7: Just Worse

(PG-13: Language) CollegeHumor’s requisite bashing of the headphone jack-less iPhone 7 features Tim Cook having a nervous breakdown, and Jony Ive revealing himself to be what we suspected he was all along: a cold-blooded AI.

Adam Ruins Hydration

Adam Ruins Hydration

Adam Ruins Everything washes out a seemingly harmless piece of advice: drinking 2L or eight glasses of water a day. It turns out no study has conclusively proven that standard. So why are we often told to stay hydrated? Because money.

Buy Food Ethically, Unless It’s Too Hard

Buy Food Ethically, Unless It’s Too Hard

(PG-13: Language) Thanks to years of research and the Internet, we’re now aware more than ever of the myriad benefits of buying locally-grown produce. But thanks to laziness, that awareness barely translates into anything fruitful.

Please, Dear God, Give Leo the Oscar

Please, Dear God, Give Leo the Oscar

(PG-13: Language) CollegeHumor got the inside scoop on what critics, filmmakers and every other human being is saying about Leonardo DiCaprio. But if this is true, then what the heck is Jackie Chan after? What about everyone in Human Centipede?

If Google Was a Guy (Part 5)

If Google Was a Guy (Part 5)

“What are the newest shapes?” CollegeHumor’s personified search engine deals with bizarrely curious people, optimistic adults and Google+, which apparently still exists. We’re surprised that Google has yet to offer object recognition via our webcams.

30 for 30: Rocky IV

30 for 30: Rocky IV

“Just to give you an idea how hard these guys were punching, sometimes a punch didn’t even land, and the head flew back anyway.” CollegeHumor imagines how ESPN’s documentary series would treat Rocky Balboa’s fight against Ivan Drago.

Adam Ruins Voting

Adam Ruins Voting

Adam Ruins Everything talks about the U.S. Electoral College. It was intended to give less populous states a voice and avoid problems should states support regional candidates. But it ended up being an undemocratic mess where a citizen’s vote hardly matters.

30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield

30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield

“Who is Al, and why is he spending time with a baseball team instead of helping starving children?” CollegeHumor and actor Neal McDonough parody ESPN’s documentary series to look back on a silly kids’ movie with an oddly star-studded cast.

If Google Was a Guy (Part 4)

If Google Was a Guy (Part 4)

(Crude humor) “Facebook. Okay to drink expired milk? Facebook.” CollegeHumor’s skit returns to put up a mirror on the dumb, creepy and outright lazy things we do with Google, and what would happen if the search engine disappeared.

Back to the Future: Actual 2015

Back to the Future: Actual 2015

(PG-13 Language) While the 2015 envisioned 30 years ago in Back to the Future Part II was a sort of commercial utopia, filled with magical Hoverboards and self-lacing Nikes, here’s what we got instead. Thanks, CollegeHumor.

Adam Ruins the TSA

Adam Ruins the TSA

…not that it was great to begin with. This clip from professional cynic Adam Conover’s spinoff TV show Adam Ruins Everything reminds us that the TSA is actually the STA – the Security Theater of America. Seriously, you guys are paying to be lied to and harassed.

Eating at Trendy Restaurants

Eating at Trendy Restaurants

(PG-13: Language) CollegeHumor roasts the expensive restaurants that don’t bother to explain their convoluted menus, and the people who go there despite knowing what’s in store for them just so they can feel fancy for a night.

YouTube Comment Cartoon

YouTube Comment Cartoon

(PG-13 Language) CollegeHumor asked YouTube commenters to make a story one line at a time. The result is a surprisingly semi-coherent tale about a man named Fistwolf – er, John Cena, and his historic marriage.

Every JRPG Ever

Every JRPG Ever

…aka Square’s checklist. We grew up with JRPGs, but as CollegeHumor points out we could do without a lot of their tropes, from the convoluted storyline to the final boss. Also, we heard a rumor that monsters are coming back.

Pixar’s Next 7 Movies

Pixar’s Next 7 Movies

(PG-13 Language) Looks like Inside Out destroyed CollegeHumor’s hearts. Here’s what they think the next round of Pixar movies will be like based on what they saw from the Disney studio’s latest movie.

Is Star Wars Nerdier than Star Trek?

Is Star Wars Nerdier than Star Trek?

Capt. Picard and the NCC-1701-D fight Darth Vader and the Death Star in a battle to determine who’s dorkier. Is it the jargon-spewing slumber party or the cult of rave toys? All we know is we wish there was a Star Riker show.

An Alternative to Selfie Sticks

An Alternative to Selfie Sticks

Having trouble using a selfie stick? CollegeHumor suggests using an ancient technique: bring a friend – or make a new one! – and have them take your picture. The joke kind of misses the point of a selfie, but it’s still funny.

Honest Rec Sports Commercial

Honest Rec Sports Commercial

(PG-13 Language) CollegeHumor’s cynical break down of some of the people that join recreational sports leagues and their reasons for signing up. Hint: it’s not about health. Well, not physical health.

Remember When Nostalgia Was Good?

Remember When Nostalgia Was Good?

“I guess it’s just better to leave the memories of the memories as memories.” CollegeHumor points out the commercialization and obsolesence of nostalgia while going through the motions of being nostalgic.

Game of Thrones Wish Fulfillment 2

Game of Thrones Wish Fulfillment 2

(PG-13: Language) Collegehumor returns with more Game of Thrones dream scenarios, from the three-eyed crow getting straight to the point to Daenerys, well, getting straight to the point. No Reek and Ramsay body swap?
