Luckily he had just finished installing a rubber patio.  ;D

So, I take the train everyday to get to my school, and yesterday when I got back there was some dude pissing on the platform. I live in a spectacularly boring city, stuff like that is enough wtf for an entire week for me.

Being in the pub and the conversation descends into a serious proposal to start a Gumby party and stand for political office as Gumby.

Could have been worse, he could have been pissing on the live rail. A venture which in and of itself holds a morbid curiosity; as to the likely hood of electrocution.

So DC comics has launched a live action "Supergirl" TV show.

Met with a good critical reception, it joins DC's other TV superhero shows, "The Flash", "Arrow", and the now-cancelled "Constantine".  Fun, if you like that sort of thing.

What do all those other shows have that "Supergirl" doesn't?  Even the cancelled one?

Ongoing comic book series.

Yep.  DC is broadcasting a show about a major superhero and they haven't even got a current comic book in print for her.

DC seems blindsided by the fan demand.  It seems to have never occurred to them that the show might spur interest.

What, you mean he's actually serious?  ???
 
I though he was doing as a massive joke at the expense of the American electorate. I mean who in their right mind would elect him?

Then again, It's been my firm belief for years that Donald Trump's entire existence was started by the Americans so as to play a joke on the rest of the world in retribution for our stereotyping of them (by creating the most boorish, jinoistic, rich idiot there could possibly be as a deliberate figure of mockery, yet who doesn't actually exist).

Wasn't the 'New 52: Supergirl' comic cancelled earlier this year because the whole '52' thing has been dumped?
 I expect a new comic will be along pretty soon. Lots of them probably.

I explain Trump to Europeans by saying he is America's Silvio Berlusconi and Berlusconi to Americans by saying he is Italy's Donald Trump.

Trying to order a Black Tartan Clan patch from Belgium. The patch is €3 but shipping costs are ridiculous. €9 for something from freaking BELGIUM, something that fits in a freaking envelope too! it's almost cheaper to hop on the train and get it myself! Faster too.
European shipping prices wtf.

It might be because I'm a slightly bad person, but I find other countries' stereotypes of Americans to be a source of endless amusement. (And not in a 'haha, they're so wrong' way either.)

One of my favorites back when I had TV was the BBC America TV channel advertising itself with a flash video of a classic red double-decker bus with monster truck wheels.

I have no idea who that is, but he does look as though he's an orchestral conductor who has borrowed Dragonforce's wind machine.  :D

I thought they busted it due to the need for a vigorous flow that was quite beyond their rigs capacity at the time?
That said considering it was a family show it's not like they could just slap some meat on the table and measure the motion of the ocean so to speak.

Going to have to watch that episode of Mythbusters because I'm pretty sure that one of them got a shock doing that to a rigged up electric fence.
