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.

The Republic of Ireland has announced a referendum in May to review it's current almost complete ban on abortions.

POTUS 45 and Piers Morgan had a major television interview on the UK's ITV channel this weekend (though viewing figures were lower than for the regular news slot on the BBC at the same time). Morgan probably viewed this as his chance to make a Frost/Nixon style mark on history, but was so sycophantic in tone that it was compared to, amongst other things "slug foreplay" and Sue Perkins memorably tweeted a comment you'd probably be better reading for yourself.

A leaked document suggests that the UK will suffer economically for Brexit no matter what exit strategy is used. In other news, the Pope is Catholic.

The CIA has stated that they believe China is as big a threat to the US as Russia in terms of interfering in the democratic process.

In some parts of the UK, waiting lists for NHS consultation over gender reassignment are currently over 2 years, when the promise is 18 weeks.

Sort of on topic, the second Ikemen figure (Nightwing being the first, of course) is been set for release, the Red Hood. Alas the initial run's "extra piece" is NOT what you might be imagining, but is an alternate face piece instead.

In video game news, a 35 year old record for an Atari 2600 video game completion has been thrown out, after it was decided it must have been faked since, it is claimed, the game literally cannot be completed in that short a time.

Star Trek Discovery continues to impress, and First Officer/Acting Captain Saru gets one hell of a Star Trek speech in the most recent episode. Give that being a command of his own! (no spoilers in the discussion please)

Saw the first Black Lightning episode (the UK being a week behind the US in terms of release schedules) and good heavens Cress Williams is both awesomely impressive in the role (The man has charisma in places most people don't even have places), AND ridiculously levels of sexy as well. I'll... be in my bunk! :)
