Thanos was right
by Thom Yee
This world doesn’t make sense any more. Californians are intentionally drinking untreated, unsterilized water they’re buying “off the grid” while people in Flint, Michigan still have too much lead in their taps. A ridiculous, Immortan-Joe-esque ignoramous is the President of the United States. Vaping is a thing. And Thanos is a major figure in our popular culture. Those four things might seem unrelated at first, but I’m pretty sure they all have megalomania and super-villainy at the heart of their origins. But we’re mostly here to talk about that last one, Thanos, today, because, as of April 27, 2018, people — normal people all over the world — suddenly knew who Thanos is. And the opportunity to talk about Thanos? As if he was something or someone people might know about? Someone people might actually care about? That makes almost no sense! That’s almost insane!
