In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

I confess it's getting harder and harder to find the positive stuff to temper the discussion beyond the death spiral of shitty politics and sheer bloody mindedness that seems to be engulfing the US and UK, so if you have other good news to share, for the love of your poor Mod Team's blood pressure please do!!!

A new trailer for Doctor Who hits, and I confess I'm getting excited by the prospect of more Peter Capaldi as D12. (and the title of the first episode "The Pilot", does hint in some ways as a soft reintroduction to the series)

All I will say about the current UK situation is that Scotland's First Minister has called for a second Scottish Independence referendum and Prime Minster Theresa May has called it a dangerously divisive and likely to cause economic uncertainty which, given that's EXACTLY what she's in the middle of doing (on a much bigger scale) must rank as one of the most ironic comments ever made in British political history

The European Court of Justice has ruled that it is lawful to ban "the visible wearing of any political, philosophical or religious sign" in the workplace, This specifically includes Muslim women wearing headscarves or other forms of concealing attire.

The Nintendo Switch has been released.... has anyone picked one up?

I'm limiting myself to one Trump story (and avoiding commenting on healthcare) and that one, from a wide selection is that apparently President Trunp didn't mean wiretapping when he said wiretapping and he wasn't actually referring specifically to President Obama when he said it was President Obama was behind it... Yeah, wrap your brains around that one.... and Kellyane Conway appears to think that the Decepticons are involved with her comment that "You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets - any number of ways... microwaves that turn into cameras."  Decepticon spokebot Reflector was unavailable for comment at this time.

The US North East has heavy snowstorms incoming. Stay safe folks!
