Webtacular World Issue # 317, January 12, 2020

Greetings Webtaculators! Isn’t it great to learn that playing war kills people? I really wish stupid people were not in charge of the world. On to the news.

STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Wagging The Dog So Hard It Falls Off Its Tail
Why: Because the constantly changing story for why Trump decided to murder someone half way around the world is not holding up to even the lightest amount of scrutiny. Thanks to his brash actions, an overly alert Iranian shot down a civilian plane. Good job everyone. Patriotism awards all around.

ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (2 min. read)
What: Failing Higher And Higher
Why: Because the rewards for people who destroy society are too high.

LAW THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Barr At The Bar
Why: Because in another “just another day in the Trump administration,” the New York Bar asked Congress to investigate the US Attorney General for bias.

SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: The Future Is Meh
Why: Because nothing coming out of the biggest technological trade show is really groundbreaking anymore. Here are some of the best things. This was probably the worst.

SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (long read? [For some reason, ESPN has all stories as one continuous scroll. Who knows])
What: Bring It Back
Why: Because the Niners have a chance to be the best again.

MOVIE THING OF THE WEEK (8 min. read)
What: The Music Makes The Movie
Why: Because John Williams has been working on Star Wars movies for 50 years.

MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Watch And Listen
Why: Because the Watchmen soundtrack is really, really good. Also, RIP Neil Peart.

LITERATURE THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: It’s Good Being Furious
Why: Because a growing number of books are channeling women’s well deserved rage at the world.

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: The Year In Games
Why: Because even though the sun is setting on two consoles, there still is a bunch of stuff coming out this year.

INTERNET THINGS OF THE WEEK (∞)
What: Obama’s Favorite Music; Obama’s Favorite Movies; Obama’s Favorite Books Pt. 1; Obama’s Favorite Books Pt. 2
Why: Because Internet, and I miss a President who has impeccable taste.

THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: I Want To Be A Pod Person
Why: Because Brian deserves it.

Webtacularly yours,
Brian
