Webtacular World Issue # 296, August 4, 2019

I am sad, and I am tired. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Enough
Why: Because I have no more words that will do anything to convince anyone that still thinks civilian owned weapons have any place in a free society. I mourn for the people affected by the shootings at Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton this past week, but I also have no hope that anything will be done to prevent this.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Cheaper Money
Why: Because I could have sworn that the only reason to lower the federal interest rate was to prop up a faltering economy. I must be wrong, since I’ve been assured America is doing great.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: The Bar Is A Joke
Why: Because the CA bar examiners released the questions to the exam before it was given.

SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: Hovering To The Future
Why: Because this is way better than those shitty two wheeled things that kept catching on fire that everyone got for Christmas two years ago.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The Tour
Why: Because with no standout American in the race, sports journalism largely forgot to mention that this happened.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: The Best Bads Of Bond
Why: Because the James Bond franchise has great villains.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Newport Folk Turns 60
Why: Because folk music has come a long way since it was the voice of a disenfranchised America. Maybe it needs to start speaking up again.

ART THING OF THE WEEK (short look)
What: Goofy Froot
Why: Because sometimes you need to look at a banana in a suit to feel a bit better about life.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: The Pen Vs. The Sword
Why: Because right now, it looks as thought the sword infiltrated religion and education and told people only it matters.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: The Super Bowl Of Fighting Games
Why: Because imagine that you took all of the sports derived from football (i.e. rugby, association football, american football, Aussie rules, etc.), and got all of the best teams for each of those playing at the same event over a weekend. That’s Evo.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Party Like It’s 1999; How To Sell Your Movie About Imaginary Hitler; Hot Chicken With Carla And Michael
Why: Because Internet.

THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: Let’s Try A Week Without Mass Murder. That shouldn’t be too hard of an ask, but I don’t have much faith in humanity right now.
Why: Because Brian deserves it.

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
