I've actually found it to be a lot better than most other humor websites, since it actually is pretty good about citing much of the scientific research that gets published by various newspapers - but putting a humorous spin to it. That, and for a humor website, it certainly cites a huge amount of scientific research (oftentimes research I wish more people would get to know - but wouldn't know since science news is so boring to them). It seems to be pretty good about avoiding the pseudoscience (which is something I wouldn't expect from a humor website). I especially liked their "6 Reasons Space Travel Will Always Suck" article. But nonetheless, I often feel ashamed of admitting my fondness for the site, since a lot of other people might be skeptical of the research it cites simply given the humorous bent that the site gives to such research.
