Wow, everyone is getting in on this.
If you haven’t heard of Scribblenauts , it’s a game where you can enter a noun and have it show up to help you solve the current puzzle. Apparently, game reviewers who tried to stump it failed and, thus, were impressed.
Now there’s a Scribblenauts game coming out that features the DC Universe. And, yes, it claims to have every costumed DC character.
I have never wanted a Nintendo DS so much before.I just want to spend hours typing characters from my memories of the bronze age. (Do they have nouns, too? Can I type “Khund”?)
They boast they have some 2,000 characters programmed in the game. I’ll be honest, I’m hearing “2,000 characters” and thinking “I’m sure I can stump the game.”
I’m sure my memories of The Legion of Substitute-Heroes, Amethyst Princess of Gemworld, The All-Star Squadron, Batman and the Outsiders* and The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl* should eventually do the job.
Of course, this could be how I find out that DC eventually introduced new characters named Yankee Poodle and Fire Jade.
Also, does the game know the difference between Lyle Norg and Jaques Foccart? Is there a way for me to get Cosmic Boy in that strapless number?
* Two of the best damn sources of villains DC would like to pretend never existed. In fact, they even had another series dedicated to killing those characters unceremoniously.
Costco CEO Craig Jelinek supports raising the minimum wage.
Costco announced record profits today, averaging $10,000 in profit per employee compared to $7,400 at Walmart.
The secret to Costco’s success is paying employees well, providing benefits, and giving them an opportunity to unionize.
So large corporations’ excuses that treating & paying workers well would damage profits are all a crock of shit.

For the honor of Grayskull, Kylie Minogue is She-Ra!
Admit it, you’d watch the hell out of this
Er…. am I the only one thinking “But She-Ra didn’t fight Skeletor! She lived on a different planet from He-Man!” Sigh.
Kylie Minogue would be perfect casting, tho…Source: funnyordie
Guillermo Diaz talking to Out magazine back in 2011.
I just happened to find this one because it’s Thursday. A new episode of Scandal often has me searching for Diaz. Love him.

News FAIL of the Day: Two CNN Anchors Talk via Satellite in the Same Parking Lot
Do you see what’s going on in this GIF? Yesterday morning, CNN Newsroom anchor Ashleigh Banfield and CNN Headline News anchor Nancy Grace were discussing the Cleveland kidnapping case “via satellite,” which is a great way to communicate for those who aren’t standing in the same parking lot, and of course, they were. The setup was discovered after a viewer noticed same exact cars passing through both sides of the split-screen in the background and The Atlantic Wire also followed up with a shot-by-shot breakdown of the scene.

I gave up on PolitiFact a while back, and, since then, have on seen evidence it was the right idea. They can join CNN in their “the middle is where the truth is” bullshit.
Wow. They’re really grasping in order not to appear “partisan”.
You have to love how the right wing has made it where the truth gets held hostage because they’ll throw a fit over anything that flies in the face of their narrative, not matter how factual it is.
People on the Facebook post for this are still holding onto the idea that they are left-leaning.
Anything that presents facts that are contrary to right wing talking points are always painted as “left leaning”. :(
Politifact has been a joke for a long time. I used to make sure to read what they said about people I’m inclined to agree with (like Rachel Maddow or Jon Stewart) but the lengths they would go to declare a “half-true” were ridiculous.
But this is just @#$%ing offensive. They’re telling LGBT people in these 29 states that if they think they deserve not to worry about being fired for who they are, they should just find the right kind of job.
Once again, we have the privileged majority telling a minority group they’re just not working hard enough to get basic rights everybody else takes for granted.
