I'm hyped. Wonder who they can find to play Geralt
I know, /capeshit, but I really enjoyed my time. The story was nice, and there was some pretty great character development, especially Rocket concerning his douchebaggery. There were a couple of questionable moments mainly from a comic book lore standpoint, and--while funny--I felt like there were too many jokey moments. Overall, enjoyable experience and didn't feel like I wasted my time ala Suicide Squad.
The Miami Police Department received a call for a break-in at a Burger King restaurant around 2 A.M. and some officers were on the site in a matter of minutes.

I kind of wanted to discuss how creepy that statement sounds, taken from this article.
Senior Advisor Stephen Miller announced that opponents, the media, and the world will see that the President's Executive Orders to "protect the country" will not be questioned by the judiciary branch because they feel that branch has too much power.
To me, that feels like a worrying statement. I have no doubts that if Trump's orders continue to be questioned in court, he'll continue to throw tantrums and fight them all the way to the Supreme Court. But saying the judicial branch has "too much power" also seems very concerning. In my opinion, it just sounds like that Trump, if the courts challenge the legality of his Executive orders, could find ways to limit their power. We already saw what happened to the Attorney General when she questioned the legality of his ban.
(I'm just coming back from lunch so I'll post more thoughts on this later, but I just wanted to get this topic started while it was still fresh in my mind.)
(Can't add a quote because my phone is being retarded)
So...she was fired for doing her job? And feel free to correct me if I'm wrong because I presently don't have the free time to research, but isn't the Justice Department part of the whole "Checks and Balances" thing in our government?

Because, you know, that pending bill to take wolves off the endangered species list isn't more important or something than toy statues.

Trump has tapped net neutrality foe Ajin Pai to become Chairman of the FCC, the agency responsible for enforcing and promulgating rules that assure an open Internet. His appointment, like many Federal appointments, will not require initial Senate approval (although he will need to be reconfirmed by the Republican-dominated Senate in 2017).
Here we go again.

It has been expected for weeks. Now, Trump transition officials confirm that Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and a major real estate developer in New York, will be named senior adviser to the president.
Rest of the article just goes on about the Meryl Streep bullshit, unfortunately.

"This is an unlawful thing you're doing." *proceeds to recite the amendment.*
Cool story, but I'm not a public servant, haven't taken an oath, and have been approved by the state to ask for your receipt when you are trying to walk out with expensive shit.
I'm meeting some pretty interesting people in this LP (loss prevention) job.
It had some problems with the camera during chase scenes and some of the character development was a little "eh", but overall not a bad movie if you do what I did and walk in with average expectations. It was a pretty faithful adaptation and did explain shit for the general movie audience without being a total exposition dump.
It's not Oscar Award material, but it is a nice popcorn flick if you just wanted to kick back and watch a cool action movie.

President Obama was so shocked at how little Donald Trump and his advisers appeared to understand about the myriad duties and responsibilities the President-elect would be taking on at the White House that he will "spend more time with his successor than presidents typically do" to provide him with additional guidance, a new report claims.
Oh my God. "I'm gonna run for office but then not bother researching what my job entails!"

Read and imagine Das' blood boiling
Gun control legislation going into effect in California next week will allow authorities to seize a person’s weapons for 21 days if a judge determines there is potential for violence.

With well over half of it going to military/Pentagon spending.
House Speaker Paul Ryan reached a deal late Tuesday on two major pieces of legislation: a $1.1 trillion spending package and a $629 billion package of tax breaks.
Just a snippet, full details in the link.
I think the military spending is ridiculous, especially with making more tanks. The Army has said they don't need anymore tanks, and there's a graveyard of them just rusting away in some Californian desert. I'm pleased to see that the military servicemen/women are getting a pay raise (even if it is a meager 1 percent) and that housing situations are being addressed, but good Christ that's still a lot of money.
Oh, but Obama is the one spending us into oblivion amirite?

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, who as leader of ISIS has inspired followers to both fight in his self-declared caliphate of Iraq and Syria, and also stage attacks in countries like Tunisia and France.
So our finalists are: A fucking moron, Vladimeme Putin, a killer, the leader of ISIS, a car CEO, a group of segregationists, the Iron Lady, and the President of Iran (I don't know much about him lol).
From what I've seen, the only person on that list who's even remotely qualified seems to be Merkel.

AND IT'S BATMAN.
Telltale Games, with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, today announced an interactive episodic game series based on DC Comics’ iconic Batman™ that is set to premiere in 2016. The official title for the Telltale series is yet to be revealed.
Given how "meh" Game of Thrones was, and that Minecraft: Story Mode is apparently not doing so well, I feel like TellTale is getting too ahead of themselves and trying to cash in on their popularity while it's still hot.
