There’s a few things tearing up the news today, including word of Sherlock‘s season four debut and a new study proving the the AIDS “Patient Zero” guy is not actually at fault for bringing AIDS to America. I’m pretty sure science already knew that, but just in case, now they extra know it.
Check out the video above, where John Green explains why “rigging the election” is bullshit. In the same vein, you can read Snopes debunking a video claiming to show Democrats rigging votes (spoiler: those are not democrats), then go find out that Trump is, indeed, on the Oregon ballot.
Over on Vox you can read the piece on Trump being a “libel bully” that the ABA refused to print, and check out the “9 types of lies Donald Trump tells.”
Speaking of Trump, he campaigned today by opening a new hotel. That seems presidential.
ProPublica is talking about Agent Orange today: Eight Times Agent Orange’s Biggest Defender Has Been Wrong or Misleading, After Cancer Diagnosis, Vet Refutes Government’s Agent Orange Expert — And Wins, and Dr. Orange: The Secret Nemesis of Sick Vets.
And now for the nerdier stuff…
- All aliens are welcome as President Lynda Carter visits Supergirl – Great episode, but why is the entire DEO such a bunch of assholes to aliens, particularly the alien DEO members?
- Lucifer welcomes each and every one of us to “Devil Time” – I’m pleased that so much of the emphasis in the last few episodes has been on the celestial stories, but I wish they’d find something more interesting for Chloe to do.
- The Flash recaptures the Silver Age spirit in its most fun episode of the season – I am srsly annoyed with the cheap Captain Cold tease. Also, in all the multiverse, there is no such thing as a Harrison Wells with no ulterior motive.
- An Inhuman’s secret is out as Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. breaks into prison – My favorite part in the whole episode was an entire wing of rioting prisoners diving back into their cells when they see Ghost Rider.
Okay, that’s all I have. Go watch this puppy who wuvs his toys.
