Wow, busy week. First off, here is your weekly video – A Capella Science presents “Eminemium (Choose Yourself)”. BOOM DROPS MIC.

Next, I wrote a thing! Click here to read my essay, “Mad Max: Fury Road Makes Your Rape Arguments Invalid”. Short version: depicting rape is not always bad, but stop using it as a lazy plot device and trying to justify it with lazy arguments, because Fury Road just blew that out of the water.
I don’t watch Game of Thrones because I’m a wuss but I’m a slave to the recaps. I thought this article, while incomplete, was interesting. From The New Inquiry: “When Game of Thrones Stopped Being Necessary”.
And last but not least, this is hysterical: “Ranking Every Jurassic World Character From Dumbest to Least Dumb”. Best line: “They basically do everything they possibly can to get eaten short of covering themselves in barbecue sauce and stepping directly into the Indominus Rex’s mouth.”
