Horror film about a Jesus-like reverse vampire that shoots blood at people's faces from holes in it's hands and if it gets in their mouths and they swallow any they turn into one themselves

*Deconstruction of movies and games where an uploaded consciousness becomes monstrous in which the uploaded consciousness is literally a robot vampire

*Thriller wherein it is discovered that both the eucharist and the story of infant Jesus being placed in a manger are holdovers from a suppressed early form of Christianity that practiced cannibalism

*Thriller wherein it is discovered that the Republicans are deliberately trying to melt the ice caps in order to flood the (mostly coastal) blue states

Defence against the dark arts: Saudi Arabia trains staff against black magic

Quote
A Saudi government commission gave dozens of members of its Mecca governing body a five-day crash course in “developing scientific skills to defeat black magic”.

Here’s the link: https://www.alaraby.co.uk/english/blog/2017/11/8/saudi-arabia-trains-staff-against-black-magic

Let’s hear it for Science!

Did they get the idea from Monty Python?

Show with anthropomorphic bees where the queen bee actually isn't a literal queen for once. Instead she's more like a hillbilly matriarch with way too many kids. This is more biologically accurate, and a potential source of humor.

I've been thinking about that too -- they don't have to knowledgably collude with anybody, they just have to drop some ammo crates for opposition to load into the accusation gun.

That's part of it at any rate.

In any case I think it's likely that Trump didn't collude and that Russia acted on it's own. Not to necessarily undermine confidence in the democratic process, but because Trump by itself represented an unprecedented opportunity to undermine the functioning of the American government, and one unlikely to be repeated if not acted upon. Why would they bother to seek his approval or assistance? He'd just fuck it up. He fucks things up. That's what he does and that's the main point of Russia manipulating things to put him in charge.

What a surprise, DPRK now says that it wont attend the summit if the US insists on denuclearisation. 

So now, the US has two options: go ahead with the summit while dropping those demands, making the US look weak and ineffective

or

Insist on denuclearisation, making North Korea call off the summit, making the US look inflexible and greedy in its demands.

Wait, can't the US just pull the very same dick move and go back to insisting on denuclearization once the summit is already well underway

Will motion capture still work if you stick the motion capture dots on a regular costume? Because I had an idea to make a sequel to the 1992 Super Mario Bros. movie by making an entire movie based on Doki Doki Panic and then digitally re-editing and re-dubbing it into a Mario Brothers movie

It must be nice to have a competent supervillain in charge

Myth with the Fates recast as creator deities. The tapestry they weave is the universe itself with the threads being the worldlines of particles, which they connect (there's not really a correct tense for this since it happens outside of time. "Connected"? "are connecting"?) according to a fixed set of rules corresponding to the laws of physics. When indeterminate quantum phenomena occur Fortuna is consulted to decide how the threads shall be positioned.

Brave New World has similarities but it's problems are unrelated to these similarities, and in many ways stem from the places where it isn't similar. They seem to have stagnated under the rule of a religion that worships ancient 19th century industrialists, they seem to have gone out of their way to perpetuate injustices that their technology and culture should have solved (in particular they still have a rigid caste system despite strict population control and the end of biological families, which essentially means that they're practicing population control to no reason other than to do it; exactly the sort of practice I seek to get rid of; they have too many people for everyone to be comfortable intentionally and this means that someone somewhere has given a damn about something that they shouldn't have), and related to the previous point they practice a sort of eugenics (and in places, reverse-eugenics) which is also indicative of people giving a damn in places and situations where they shouldn't
