Webtacular World Issue # 259, November 18, 2018

Greetings Webtaculators. We got a dog. His name is Caboose. We like him a lot.

CabooseOn to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Trump Fails California
Why: Because as the death and missing person toll grows from the Camp Fire, Trump again proved that he is entirely incapable of performing one of the primary roles of his job as President – mainly, being an actual leader. He continuously proves he has no idea what he is talking about, and furthermore, does not care.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: How To Use Friends And Influence People
Why: Because the term “influencer” is dumb. And so are the things that they do.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Lawyers Are Human, After All
Why: Because copy-pasting text is a good way to make a mistake. Trust me.

SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: The Future Of Fire Fighting
Why: Because thanks to climate change, fires are becoming a continuous, severely dangerous problem in the West.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The Princess We Need
Why: Because Ralph Breaks The Internet manages to be a fun sequel.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (10 min. read)
What: Smashing
Why: Because the Smashing Pumpkins almost entirely reunited to create a new album. I know most of my posts are about bands from the 90s. This article about Post Malone explains why I haven’t really updated my musical tastes. I understand that this makes me an “old,” but I’m ok with that.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (6 min. read)
What: As You Wish
Why: Because the author of the Princess Bride, as well as the screenwriter for multiple films such as “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”  and “Misery” passed away.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (many reads)
What: A Number Problem
Why: Because this week saw the release of Fallout 76 (really the sixth or ninth game in the series, depending on how you’re counting), another trip back to WWII through Battlefield V (somehow the sequel to last year’s Battlefield 1, and the twelfth game in the series), and Hitman 2 (the seventh game in the series). The most fun thing that came out this week was probably Spyro Reignited Trilogy, a single updated package of three games that came out twenty years ago. Go figure.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: YouTube Is Finally Showing Movies; Elton Gets A Piano; Sort
Why: Because Internet.

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

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
