Marco Rubio's easy steps for preparing for a media interview:

- Arrive at the media outlet 5-10 minutes early. Expect to wait!
- Make eye contact with the reporter.
- Listen for the larger issue behind the question and find the connection to your issue.
- Answer the question with a brief answer, then one of your key messages.
- Use single, clear sentences to make your point.
- Dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing.
- He knows exactly what he's doing.

Eleven little Republicans showed up according to CNN,
Rand Paul quit, so now there are ten.

Ten little Republicans on their Iowa results whine,
Rick Santorum the most, so now there are nine.

(to be continued ...)

Rocket-assisted launch of a B-47 Stratojet bomber. The 1950s were crazy. http://bit.ly/1PerzQG

NBC's new show Superstore is both bad and yet oddly perfect for anyone that's every worked in retail. It's almost like there are two teams writing for the show.

The team responsible for the core episode story write the usual sitcom 101 plot beats. There has to be another team, though, that sets up those interstitial customer scenes that are beautiful silent art that perfectly capture the black comedy (and horror) of big box retail world.

The first few episodes perfectly capture the conversations many workers have had around morning meetings, internal retail company magazines, and of course the requisite 80s training videos.

For anyone that hasn't worked in retail in their past, here's an entire forum thread about real life in retail: http://bit.ly/206RSvP
Jonah repeatedly fails to make a good impression on his first day at Cloud 9 superstore.

In 2015, I bought a bike. According to the Strava tracking app, I spent 88 hours on a bicycle. Rode 1,036 miles. Climbed 17,676 feet. Looking forward to 2016's rides!

Is the writing on Arrow a test?

The Web Nuke™ and Battering Ram® are hard, gritty and realistic compared to the simple fact that MALCOLM IS STILL BREATHING.

He killed 500 people, put plans in action that lead to Oliver's island adventures, his dad's death, his mom's death. He more directly caused his own son and Oliver's best friend's death. He killed Oliver's lover, Sarah, by brainwashing his own daughter and forcing her to become a killer. Causing her to be killed by Ras. And now she's an Incredibly Strange Creature Who Stopped Living and Became a Mixed-Up Zombie!!? And he gets to stand there among them, and get a handshake from Oliver.

This has to be a test by the writers.

Crappy time-travel shenanigans, poor plot points, terrible science ... Whenever someone complains about something on Legends of Tomorrow, I am just going to respond with "Malcom Merlyn is still alive, your argument is invalid."

I work with people young enough that they've never heard of Ernest Borgnine. #GetOffMyLawn #WatchMoreAirwolf

In case all other sports aren't dangerous enough for you, there's always "wingboarding".
