Our products are available all over the place, such as our webstore, Amazon, and at all of these retailers.

We make localized versions of Cards Against Humanity for Canada, Australia, and the UK, plus a whole special “International Edition” devoid of any exciting country-specific jokes. You can get all of that stuff on our webstore.

The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question with a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card. You can read the official rules here.

Yes! We sell a handful of large boxed expansions and dozens of small themed packs, plus a few accessories and other bullshit.

Take a deep breath. Contemplate the transience of all things. In your mind’s eye, envision the faces of everyone you love and everything you hold dear, and let them go.

Then go to our webstore FAQ, and if that doesn’t help, send us an email at Mail@CardsAgainstHumanity. com.

Maybe! Email [email protected] for more information.

No. We need to make money somehow.

Yes, and it’s mostly fart jokes. You can check out Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition here.

Absolutely. We rewrite huge swaths of the game every year, swapping in spicy hot jokes to replace lame dated references. For example, we recently replaced “Hillary Clinton’s emails” with “A time-traveling Chinese general from the Shang Dynasty.” The latest edition is 2.3, and it’s almost completely different from the original version of the game.

No! We don’t want to.

You can help us test out new cards at the official Cards Against Humanity Lab. You can also play online at Pretend You’re Xyzzy (though we can’t promise they’ll always have the latest cards and we can’t vouch for their user-generated content).

Finally, we highly recommend not playing online and instead playing in the real world so you can look your dad in the eye while saying “pixelated bukkake.

No! We legally own the name “Cards Against Humanity” as well as the design of our game, the slogan, our logos, and all of our writing. That means you need a license from us to use any of that stuff. Please don’t make anything that confuses people into thinking it’s affiliated with us, or we’ll have to call the lawyers.

No you don’t. But you can submit your ideas anonymously here if you want to. We promise never to look at them.

So are we. It’s pretty fucked up!

We’re way too busy for bullshit like that. Check out Your Shitty Jokes. It contains 50 blank cards that you can fill with your stupid card ideas.

Note: this policy does not apply to Hugh Jackman.

You don’t need the help of Cards Against Humanity LLC to do this.

We did. It’s in Maine, and you can learn more here.

We briefly stopped producing our game to fulfill our lifelong dream of launching Original Prongles. But that was a financial catastrophe, so now we’re back to making comedy card games.

Unfortunately, no. That was also a financial catastrophe. But you can check out when we did that here.

I love you, too.

Mysteries of the strange map of Piri Reis – Rambler/Saturday

Don’t Panic

13 Turkish admiral Haji Muhyiddin Piri ibn Hadji Mehmed presented his own map of the world – the most detailed on This moment. The map made a real sensation in Constantinople, although this city has always been famous for the abundance of smart and attentive travelers, each of whom tried to compose his own work.

The creation of Piri Reis showed parts of Europe and North Africa. Brazil, South America, the Azores and the Canary Islands were depicted here. Moreover, the cartographer managed to capture some elements of the southern continent, which means that he had an idea about the existence of Antarctica.

Compiler genius

© Don’t Panic

Reis was not only smart, but also honest. He did not declare that the map is the fruit of only his labors. On the contrary, in his work the master used whole piles of someone else’s material. But Haji Muhiddin did all this very competently. For example, some parts of the work were taken from maps created in the era of Alexander the Great. This, for a second, is the 4th century BC. Among other things, the attentive author had access to the Library of Alexandria – and yet scientists still do not know for sure what its walls were hiding.

The first riddle

Hapgood, an Ican cartographer and professor of oceanology, published a paper according to which Piri-reis used maps still unknown to mankind.

The authors of these maps had to know exactly the size of the Earth and, moreover, they had to use such technical equipment, which appeared only several centuries after the death of Piri Reis himself.

The second riddle

For a long time, the Piri Reis map was thought to be a skilful forgery – however, careful checks proved its authenticity. Scientists could not believe not only the exceptional accuracy of the author, but also his awareness. For example, Haji Mukhiddin could not have known about the existence of the Andes, located deep in the South American continent. These mountains were discovered only half a century after the publication of the map. Piri Reis also knew about the Falkland Islands, which were generally discovered only at the end of the 16th century.

The third riddle

Researchers distrusted the Antarctica shown on the map, officially discovered in 1820. Moreover, Piri Reis showed that part of the coast (and it is completely true) that is under the ice. Its form became known only in 1950 – that is, several centuries after the death of the perspicacious author.

Your request for evaluation of some unusual features on the 1513 Piri Reis map has been considered. It is reasonable to say that the bottom of the map shows the Princess Martha Coast, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica, and the Palmer Peninsula. We believe that this conclusion is the most logical and, in all likelihood, the correct interpretation of the map. We have no idea how the data on this map can correlate with the estimated level of geographical knowledge in 1513.

Rold Z. Olmeer, US Air Force Commander

There are tigers here

-reis portrayed Antarctica as inhabited. There are forests on the map, images of huge snakes – and tigers, which, in fact, simply could not live in that part of the world. Of course, all this fits the image of a medieval cartographer, taking the missing information right out of his head.

That’s just everything else is depicted too reliably to believe in an excessive penchant for the author’s imagination.

Disappeared sailors

However, scientists have already proposed a clue to the incredible awareness of Piri Reis. The same Hapgood (who by no means can be classified as a pseudoscientist) declares that the only acceptable explanation is the existence of a certain prehistoric people, who were pretty adept at navigation. These guys were supposed to explore the entire planet – and then supposedly disappear into thin air, leaving behind only excellent maps.

Maps of extraterrestrial territories. To the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight into space

Information about the material
Published: 19 April 2021

Museums, archives, libraries of our country have prepared a galaxy of projects dedicated to one of the main historical anniversaries of the year – the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight into space.

Recall that this date was included in the list of priority areas for the work of the Russian Historical Society in 2021.

One of the brightest projects was the exhibition of the Russian State Library “Maps of Extraterrestrial Territories”. The exposition is located in the Reading Room of Cartographic Publications of the RSL.

April 12, 1961 at 9:07 a.m. Moscow time, a few tens of kilometers north of the village of Tyuratam in Kazakhstan, the Vostok launch vehicle was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. She launched the Soviet Vostok spacecraft with a man on board into low Earth orbit. It was Yuri Alekseevich Gagarin. The flight duration was 1 hour 48 minutes. While in orbit, Gagarin maintained radio contact with the Earth, conducted observations through the windows, and controlled the operation of the ship’s systems.

The beginning of the exhibition was timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of this event. The Maps of Extraterrestrial Territories project allows us to trace the evolution of the study of celestial space from the first steps of scientists of antiquity and the Middle Ages to the latest scientific research of our days.

The history of the development of human civilization included scientists who tried to comprehend the structure of the Universe. Models of the geocentric system of the world order according to Ptolemy and the heliocentric system according to Copernicus are depicted on the pages of the “New Atlas, or Collection of Maps of All Parts of the Globe” presented at the exhibition (St. Petersburg, 1792). The image of the geocentric system according to Tycho Brahe is included in the atlas of Andreas Cellarius “Harmonia Macrocosmica”, published in Amsterdam in 1660 (the reissue is on display – Cologne, 2006).

Since ancient times, people have observed the heavenly bodies. The structure of the starry sky, the study of the constellations appearing in the sky helped determine the cardinal directions, create solar calendars. One of the largest medieval observatories – the Ulugbek observatory – was located in the vicinity of Samarkand. The star catalog compiled by Ulugbek in the 15th century was included in his work “Atlas of the Starry Sky” by the Polish astronomer Jan Hevelius (Gdansk, 1690). The exposition of the exhibition includes a reprint of this atlas (Tashkent, 1968). Images of the zodiac constellations of the Northern and Southern hemispheres can be seen on the maps of the German cartographer Johann Homann (Nuremberg, 1742).

The further development of astronomy in Russia is represented by publications of the 19th century: the map “Stereographic image of the starry sky on the St. Petersburg horizon” (St. Petersburg, 1852), “Star atlas for celestial observations” by Yakov Messer (St. Petersburg, 1901) and others.

In the second half of the 20th century, in the era of human space exploration, a new opportunity arose for further study of the earth’s surface and other planets of the solar system. Images of the Earth’s surface from space, space photographs of individual natural objects are also included in the exposition of the exhibition.

The photographs taken from the automatic interplanetary station “Luna-3” in 1959 formed the basis of the “Atlas of the Far Side of the Moon” (M. , 1960). Thus, a new direction in astronomy appeared and began to actively develop – mapping of extraterrestrial territories. Territories located far beyond the Earth are described according to the same laws of terrestrial geography: survey, geomorphological, hypsometric and other types of maps of the surface of the terrestrial planets are compiled, atlases are compiled, globes are made.

A great contribution to the mapping of extraterrestrial territories is made by scientists from the P. K. Sternberg State Astronomical Institute of Moscow State University named after M. V. Lomonosov and the Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography. Employees of the complex laboratory for the study of extraterrestrial territories prepared and published the Atlas of Phobos, presented at the exhibition, edited by the USSR pilot-cosmonaut, scientist Viktor Petrovich Savinykh. The atlas, maps and three-dimensional image of Phobos are compiled on the basis of data received from spacecraft. The globe of Mercury was also created by the team of the complex laboratory.

The exhibition presents a diverse collection of foreign publications on astronomy: atlases of galaxies, the solar system, terrestrial planets, the starry sky. Of particular interest is the German edition of the transparent (translucent) maps of the zodiac constellations made in Stuttgart in the second half of the 19th century.

The exposition is complemented by postage stamps dedicated to the flight of Yuri Alekseevich Gagarin, and postcards with images of paintings drawn by the USSR pilot-cosmonaut Alexei Arkhipovich Leonov and artist Andrei Konstantinovich Sokolov. The exhibition will close on 19June 2021. Entrance is by library card.

Recall that on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the first manned flight into space at MSTU. N.E. Bauman Chairman of the Russian Historical Society Sergey Naryshkin held a round table on the historical role of Russia in space exploration.
