"If you think "hypocrite" is too strong a word for the people on this list, keep in mind that we're all hypocrites, in a way. Even the most fierce animal rights activist may really love the leather shoes some poor cow made possible. We're all human, and that's also true for the famous thinkers and activists below.

So we're not saying these people are all liars or that their books should be tossed in the garbage. It's just interesting to see how the human mind works." - Cracked.com

I love this story, because I do this everyday,  a couple of times a day or my fingers start to hurt.

"...As they expected, the device pulled the two bones in the joint farther and farther apart until it cracked, smashing the bones together. But the final result differed from the prevailing “bubble” theory; after cracking, the joints were actually farther apart than when they started, the space taken up by a new dark spot, or “void,” which stayed there well after the cracking sound had been emitted."
