On It's Time to Talk About 'Snowpiercer,' the Best Action Movie of the Summer

The plot holes took me 100% out of the movie, but did provide me with hours of fun when a friend and I tried to come up with better answers. Like the bugs CLEARLY live in the walls of the trains where there is also what ever bugs eat. Also there has to be some kind of UV free top to every car so that the plants can undergo photo synthesis (this is extra hard for the ocean car? also is the bottom of the ocean car covered in marine snow?) but then why don't people have tans? Was the train designed with replacing parts with kid's bodies in mind? If so, bad ass. The main ...inequality I want to talk about is birth control. Like if I was in the tail end of the train I'd be like "sorry, dude from Abyss I'm not growing a baby in my body so that you can just steal it to dispose of toxic waste*" Like it maybe makes sense that the front of the train wants to procreate, but also maybe they want to sit in party spas and not have train babies? *Conservation of mass question: If there's waste coming onto the train where are you getting the fuel? You're not turning energy into mass so something is fueling the damn thing.

On When You're Not Saving Enough to Retire at 65

I want there to be a way that owning your house counts towards retirement planning. I get that if part of your plan (like mine, for now) is "don't have rent/mortgage payments by the time you retire" the dollar value of your property doesn't really figure in. Who cares if you're living rent free in a dream home or a good enough home? There's also the possibility of selling your home and using the money to support living in a nursing home which my friend's grandmother just did. Or downsizing your house to go from having a moderate monthly payment to none after your kids move out. None of that is in an account, but it's part of your plan/assets.

On Weird Al Becomes Wired Al And Everyone Wins

Weird Al is either a for real nice person or very good at pretending. Also his live shows are super fun.
