Webtacular World Issue # 149, October 9, 2016

Greetings Webtaculators! I dunno about you all, but these debates give me heart palpitations. At least there are other important things happening in the world to put off thinking about the election until I actually get to vote. Hopefully enough other people make the correct decision. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: Global Warming In Real Time
Why: Because Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti, and just produced record storm levels in South Carolina.

POLITICAL THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: DO NOT VOTE FOR TRUMP
Why: Because this is not just “locker room” talk. This is an almost 60 year old man (at the time) bragging about sexually assaulting women. I am appalled that Trump is still a candidate, or that anybody thinks that he would be a good representative of our country.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: How To Dine Out As A Couple
Why: Because sharing is caring.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK ()
What: Rick And Morty Go To Court
Why: Because this is a real transcript of a real court proceeding. It probably explains a lot about our court systems. Or not.

TECH THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Germany Looking To Ban Internal Combustion Engines By 2030
Why: Because this is a major move by a country to electrify its vehicles.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: NPR Does Sports
Why: Because this transcript is both explanatory and ridiculous.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (2 hr. watch)
What: Nightline’s Take 
Why: Because PBS makes great documentaries.

TELEVISION THING OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: Wicky Wicky Wild Wild West
Why: Because Westworld is shaping up to be a very interesting show.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (7 min. listen)
What:Music By People I Know
Why: Because Easway and The Blemish are two artists who have been making music for a while, and their new releases are bangers.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The Funniest Books
Why:  Because funny books are usually written by funny people, so here are 82 of them.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Sony’s Take VR
Why: Because the third and final of the big Virtual Reality experiences just arrived. You might want to wait until the next generation of devices come out, because consensus seems to be that none of the current platforms (the Vive, Oculus, and now the PlayStation VR) all do some things well, but not all.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Running Or Biking?Ken BoneCool Kicks
Why: Because Internet.

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

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
