We stayed up (entirely too) late last night to watch the first episode of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, and it was pretty good. I strongly suspect I’m missing a great deal of the context for this show. I’m probably going to have to watch the whole thing, do a bunch of reading and homework, and then go back and watch it all again, before I can have any sort of a decent opinion on it.

In non-nerd news, a bunch of important scientists say that when it comes to climate change, we’re screwed. Which, let’s be honest here, we already knew.
Meanwhile, you know how Congress passed that bill allowing 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, and then the President vetoed it, and then they vetoed the veto and passed it anyway? They’ve got some buyer’s remorse. Turns out that bill was kind of really bad, and no one told Congress! Well, no one but everyone, including the President himself, but I guess that wasn’t good enough.
Since we’re talking politics, the Trump Foundation is in more trouble. Amongst the other shadiness Trump and his charity may have gotten up to, they’re also lacking some of the certifications they need. Also, Trump’s having a just super bad week. It’s hard to feel bad for him though, since his bad week is entirely of his own making.
Speaking of bad times that are entirely of Trump’s own making, he had a Twitter fit at like 5am this morning and advised everyone to go check out Alicia Machado’s sex tape. Yep. That’s a thing that happened. This election is so. weird. y’all.
Oh, and FYI, the creepy clowns have made it to Portland. I don’t know what’s going on with the clown thing. It’s probably just the time of the year. But just so everyone knows, I punch first and ask questions later. I don’t want some dumb college kid in bloody grease paint acting all surprised about his broken nose or anything. You’ve been warned.
Finally, to end the week on a high note, here’s ten minutes of kittens being adorable.
