Webtacular World Issue # 222, March 4, 2018

Greetings Webtaculators! The Oscars didn’t screw up too much this time! Good job for them! The same definitely can’t be said about the U.S. Executive branch, which somehow managed to have a week that was most likely worse than most of the other disastrous ones before it. I don’t know how the bar keeps on getting lower, but it does. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Losing All Hope
Why: Because Trump lost his communications director (I still find it impossible that someone actually held this job), is probably going to have to kick his son-in-law out, and is still openly feuding with most of his remaining staff. Trump also basically said that he doesn’t care about gun rights, specifically relating to due process. What a great leader!

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: The Phantom Menace
Why: Because trade wars are bad, and Trump apparently is Emperor Palpatine. George Lucas was trying to warn us all along.

EDUCATION THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Striking For The Future
Why: Because West Virginia teachers have been on strike for over a week. Maybe having taxes to pay for a decent public sector wages is a good thing?

SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: No More Drivers
Why: Because CA just allowed driverless cars to actually be driverless. This will be fun.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (15 min. read)
What: What Is A Baseball Anyway?
Why: Because baseball is coming back soon, and you might as well know why people are knocking more out of the park,

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. look)
What: The Oscars
Why: Because this year went fine! Del Toro and Peele won! Here are a bunch of times the Oscars were wrong.

ENTERTAINER THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: The Donald
Why: Because Donald Glover’s Atlanta is back for another season, and he continues to prove to be one of the the most interesting multifaceted artists of this era.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Captain
Why: Because one of America’s best writers is now in charge of one of America’s best super heroes.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: Learning From Failure
Why: Because Into The Breach makes you think about what you would sacrifice to save the world.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Hating The Oscars; Muppets Minus Muppets; Polkaton
Why: Because Internet.

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

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
