It’s election day here in the United States, and after being on double, triple, quadruple super secret probation, I’ve been warned by the Editor in Chief (I mean Chief Editor) Doug that if I post anything political, he and I are going to have an Alexander Hamilton/Aaron […]
Wait… Ant-Man’s physics MAKE NO SENSE! Last summer’s Ant-Man was one of the unexpected delights of the Marvel cinematic universe.
