If you're hoping to collect your reward at the "cyber symposium," you just have to shatter a man's faith in God.

Because Dean Cain Sucks: MAGA Superman Is Dead

Dean Cain is no longer allowed to have anything to do with Superman. We're retconning him out.

Update: This week Dean Cain was on Fox News, complaining about "wokeness and anti-Americanism" in the recent Ta-Nehisi Coates-led Captain America comics, which featured Captain America decrying the way marginalized Americans are often sold a dream before they're "handed a raw deal."

Never mind the fact that Captain America has a long history of this kind of criticism, or the fact that Dean Cain praises America for "constantly striving for a more perfect union" — an effort that is literally impossible without vocal criticism of the nation's flaws. The more important point is that Cain has no authority to speak on superheroes, because we already erased him from Superman history.

Late Capitalism Diaries: The Worst COVID Scams

Capitalism teaches us that money is the only thing that's real and the only solution to every problem. So when people are desperate and afraid because a deadly and wildly contagious virus is killing hundreds of thousands and ravaging the global economy, what they really need is someone to give their last few dollars to.

Thankfully, the ancient, venerated tradition of the snake oil salesman is alive and well, and the following good Samaritans were more than happy to strip confused and struggling people of every last dime in exchange for "cures" that primarily treated the problem of having too many dimes.

Recently, the former Breitbart editor turned global pariah Milo Yiannopoulos announced to the world that he is "ex-gay," triggering celebrations among the gay community.

Until 2017, Yianoppoulos was known as the token gay member of the so-called "alt-Right," pro-Trump movement. He was the British provocateur who sparked controversy and protest with university speaking engagements wherein he would spout misogyny, transphobia, fat-shaming, Islamaphobia, and racism, all with the dubious cover of being a gay man.

This Haunts Me: Did Scientists at CERN End the World in 2012?

Can the strangeness of recent history be blamed on scientists meddling with forces beyond their understanding?

Do you remember 2012?

People were convinced that the world was going to end — that the Mayan calendar had predicted it more than 2,000 years earlier. And protesters and time travelers continued to decry the cataclysmic dangers of CERN's Large Hadron Collider, where scientists were taking apart the building blocks of the universe to understand how they worked...
