Despite the fact that Trump has not (to date) flown around on a Halloween-themed hoverboard while wearing a goblin costume and hurling bombs at people, he does have a lot in common with Norman Osborn. Both of them are business tycoons who live in giant towers in New York City.

Both of them also have a thing for blondes who are much younger than them. Trump, despite looking like an embalming accident, is married to a former model 25 years his junior, while Osborn had an affair with Spider-Man’s girlfriend, Gwen Stacy. Both these turns of events are equally inexplicable.

So strong is this blonde obsession, in fact, that it even leads these powerful men to desire (or repeatedly joke about desiring) women they should stay the hell away from. Osborn once impregnated his son’s girlfriend, while Trump’s own family weirdness is somehow even more off-putting. We’re not going to detail every sexual comment he’s made about his daughters here, because 1) there are already enough articles about that, and 2) holy shit there are multiple articles about that.

And finally, one has pumpkin bombs, while the other simply resembles a pumpkin.

But wait. Wacky looks, lavish buildings, younger women, incestuous overtones – we’re describing every millionaire ever here, aren’t we? Sure, but that’s only the beginning.

Louis C.K. Drops A New Show Unannounced: ‘Horace and Pete’ Review

Without any prior announcement, Louis C.K. posted the first episode of a new show, Horace and Pete, on his website on Saturday. The dramatic comedy, clocking in at a little over an hour, is set in an old bar, Horace and Pete’s. C.K. plays Horace; Steve Buscemi is Pete. The dingy bar is packed with stars playing low-down, screwed-up, and screwed-over people, including Jessica Lange, Alan Alda, SNL’s Aidy Bryant, Edie Falco, and Steven Wright.

Hey, I'm currently in highschool and I really want to become a software engineer by the time I'm out of college. Is there anything you'd suggest for me to do to get a head start or any classes I could take that would help me out? I'd really appreciate it if you could give me some advice because I have no idea where to start (^-^')7

My absolute biggest recommendation though is:

Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software


(check in my faq to learn what to do with this ^)

If you are an absolute 0/10 beginner or even want to just understand something. This is a really realllly good book that I would recommend you read. Isn’t that long either but it gets you from “Computers work by magic” to intuitively understanding what your computer is actually doing along with some little history lessons.
