Another week, another mass shooting in America. I remember seeing a statistic to the effect there being more than one mass shooting per week since President Obama took office in 2009. You can make statistics say a lot of thing but it’s scary that this one seems so believable. It’s even more frightening that nothing will be done to prevent another mass shooting from happening in future.
Anyway, let’s get this post started. Let’s kick things off with Jessica Alba.

You probably don’t know that 99% of the banana market is the Cavendish banana. It probably won’t be holding that market share for long as a new disease is attacking the plants. (Wonkblog)
By the way, if you wanted my thoughts on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, here they are over at etg. (et geekera)
The FHRITP meme is still going. I’m not sure why but this reporter shut down someone pretty good on live TV.
