SPDIER-MAN SOARS!

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN! This is the summer superhero movie we have all longed desired →variety.com


Box office trackers had forecast an opening weekend ranging from $85 million to $110 million, but first-day business lifted those to the $115 million-plus range. Studio estimates stood at $80 million to $90 million, but were upgraded to near $100 million.


And the reviews are great.. scoring 94% on Rotten Tomatoes..

Summer movies at their best.

HISTORY

Despite people’s belief system not allowing this information to become fact in their brains, it is true: The Jim Jones cult did not die drinking Kool-Aid. It was Flavor Aid.

From a past story detailing the events: The surprising thing is that all the sources on the massacre say the powder was the grape variety of another drink brand, Flavor Aid. Made by Jel-Sert, Flavor Aid appeared in one of the first newspaper reports on the massacre.

The claim is repeated in the 1982 book Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People. And surviving witnesses said that Flavor Aid was the drink used, not Kool-Aid.

With the evidence so clear, why did the phrase “drinking the Kool-Aid” emerge?

MEME WAR I

Here is how things unfolded.. This past slow news weekend, President Donald Trump initiated first blast when he posted a MEME of him from 2007 clothes lining Vince McMahan.. but the head of the WWE owner was replaced with CNN’s logo. The media was shocked! Scrutiny began! Such hate! Vitriol..

And some Americans most likely would have been on CNN’s side with this one. After all, we have grown a bit weary of a Tweeting President.

And then CNN went and did this…

They found the REDDIT user who created the meme…using various data mining tricks and social media INFO..

The user, not named at this point: HansSoloAsshole. Love the name.

Basically what CNN decided to do was blackmail the person–some are claiming the REDDIT user is a 15-year-old. CNN virtually had the user promise to to make any more MEMES.. and if he did (they will be watching they told him) they would release his name to the world!! But if he didn’t? His secret is their secret.

Within hours of CNN broadcasting a ‘victory’ story on …
