Webtacular World Issue # 101, November 8, 2015

Greetings Webtaculators! Do any of you have any good pork recipes? I somehow managed to come into possession of 15 or so pounds of it, (including the feet!), so any suggestions would be welcome. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: No One Votes In Off Years
Why: Because local politics probably have a bigger impact on your daily life than you realize. No weed for Ohio, Airbnb is taking over SF, and Kentucky, well, is Kentucky.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Invest In All The Things!
Why: Because you no longer need to be an accredited investor to invest in startups. This is going to be fun.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (10 min. read)
What: God As Law
Why: Because religion still has quite a bit of say in determining the outcome of certain cases.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK ()
What: Data Caps Come To Broadband
Why: Because although 300 GB seems like a lot of data, think about the fact that a single TV episode is 1.5GB, a video game is 25GB, and streaming audio is about 100MB per hour. Multiply that by 4 people in a family, and it’s not that hard to hit that limit.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The Fall Of Kobe
Why: Because Kobe Bryant, formerly one of the best basketball players to ever play the game, is having quite a bad start to the season. Turns out we’re all human.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Just Reuse The Shot
Why: Because filming is expensive.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: People Apparently Only Buy Adele
Why: Because I didn’t realize people still bought music. But Adele seems alright.

ART THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Cartoons Are Pretty Great
Why: Because supporting artists who turn the whimsical into reality makes the world a better place. Good luck, Ray!

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: $2,600 For 0GB Of Memory
Why: Because that’s how much money Mark Twain’s first typewriter cost in today’s dollars.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK ()
What: Activision Is Busy
Why: Because it also owns Blizzard, which is also making a movie.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Rube Slowberg; This Proves All Lawsuits Should Get Their Own Podcast; Somehow This Isn’t A Joke
Why: Because Internet.

THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: Beyond Bacon
Why: Because Brian deserves it.

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
