This week’s pop culture stew features Super Men, Super Cars, and a super old game that kids are rediscovering. To add spice to the mix, I’m throwing in a quip “TikTok is the unlikely focus of an international power struggle.”
Henry Cavill out as Superman
Despite appearing as Superman in a cameo black adam And actor Henry Cavill will not star in the next Superman film, announcing that he is returning to the role for the second film. James Gunn, co-head of the Warner Bros. DC Comics film and TV unit, announced that a new Whack of Steel is slated for release at some point in the future, but it won’t star Cavill. According to Gunn, still-untitled superman mOV occurs earlier in the life of the protagonist, so, presumably, it is needed a young actor to wear tights.
Cavill confirmed that he would not be Returning to the DC franchise on his Instagram, offering fans the following reassuring words: “My turn to wear the cape has passed, but Superman never will. It’s been a fun ride onward and upward with all of you.” Has been
It frees DC to fix past mistakes and finally cast Nicolas Cage as Superman. I know he’s old, but the man is such a good actor to play it.
Tiktok brings memes, dance and international tension
While most of its young users were sharing dance videos, memes and playing chess, the US government this week took a major step against the social media platform TikTok. In a rare show of bipartisanship, TThe US Senate unanimously passed a bipartisan bill that would ban TikTok from all federal government equipment. Eight states have already taken such a step for state employees.
Since the Trump administration, there has been a government flurry about banning TikTok. The hugely popular social media app is owned by Chinese company ByteDance. and is regarded by some as a potential national security threat, At the same time, the personal privacy of the citizens is also at risk. So far, TikTok seems to be the only one Possibility threat, without any evidence that it is involved in data collection and interception that federal official Fear. I’m bringing all this up because it’s completely wild that an app used largely by teenagers to waste time is at the center of a power struggle between two of the world’s biggest superpowers. What a world, eh?
What’s the point of this bizarre-but-sexy TikTok video?
Like countless other adult entrepreneurs and thirst-trappers, thisis_bex thought-provoking posts (and often stingy and annoying) videos on TikTok with the intention of pointing people to your Instagram, Which one? compulsively joins her OnlyFans. His videos get respectable view counts like 40K per but one video has been viewed over 5 million times and climbing, it’s attracting people from tWitter, Redit, and online everywhere but because it is not particularly sexy; this only astonishing,
In the video she is trying to look sultry in the mirror, with the phrase “Imagine how much better your life would be if you had a 26 year old nursing assistant, now replace the S with an N.”
Well, replace S with N and I get “nursing enant next to me”. or “Surcinge Assist on my side.” Or maybe “a surnsig anintast by my colleague.” I don’t think I use it.
So far, Bex has offered no explanation to the many commenters begging for a hint to his strange puzzle, so there’s no way to know if it’s a mistake, a puzzle no one has solved yet, or compelling. There is a deliberate attempt to attract attention by presenting nonsense. Anyhow, it’s working.
The hot game all the kids are playing is – chess?
Kids are getting super into chess these days. Impressed by the popularity of the Netflix series queen’s trick And prompting everyone to stay inside for years, the 1,400-year-old sport is flourishing. #chesstok tag has been viewed over a billion times with users sharing videos of exciting match, lesson, meme video It’s only fun for chess players, videos of beach skirmishes Chess Hustlers and Grandmastersand also Secret Easter Eggs / Exploits Hidden in the rules of chess. (Yeah I know en passant isn’t an easter egg or exploit; I’m kidding.) Personally, I think chess has serious balance issues: the queen is OP and black is always playing at a disadvantage. I hope a patch will be released soon.
Viral Video of the Week: The World’s Fastest Cars: Lucid Air Sapphire vs Bugatti Chiron vs Tesla Plaid
If you’ve had a tough week, I suggest you sit back, relax and enjoy A video of cars you will never be able to afford Much faster than it seems possible. Electric car engines deliver instant, maximum torque, so they jump off the line, going from stock to still 60 mph in two sec. But can they beat a gas-powered supercar in a 1/4-mile race?
to reply Question, Gearhead YouTube Channel haggerty Launched two of the world’s fastest production electric cars-The Lucid Air Sapphire and the Tesla Plaid—in a drag race against the Bugatti Chiron. (He even threw a Ducati motorcycle in for fun.) This video is really infuriating, because I just spent $4 million dollars on a Chiron last week, and now I have to scrap it – I’m going to give one to a farmer. I’m not losing a drag race Tesla,
