I'm sorry, what?  Another reboot?!  The first set with Maguire was fun, the second set with Garfield was dark and exciting, but why not continue the same storyline, at least?  Spider-Man wasn't a child for his entire career.  I'd like to see a movie with a mature, experienced Spider-Man taking on some of his most memorable battles from the comics. This is ridiculous.  Not only that, but since it's Sony, he still can't do any crossovers with other Marvel films.  Humbug.
 
OFFICIAL: Marvel Studios + Sony Pictures have found our #SpiderMan star and director!

Earnings comparison:

$$$$ heterosexual men
$$$ homosexual men
$$ homosexual women
$ heterosexual women.

Wow.  And this doesn't even factor in racial, ethnic, or other cultural considerations.

What are your thoughts on this world languages infographic?

Here's an example of why the semantics of many media headlines bother me.  Take this example, from a reputable source: "British tank crushes learner driver's car in Germany"

This headline, coupled with the photo, almost certainly lead you to the conclusion that the tank driver was in error.  Reading the article reveals that the student driver drove out in front of the tank, leaving the tank inadequate time to stop.  

Sadly, headlines are often all people read these days, especially on social posts references news articles.  Often, the headlines are non-specific or provide unnecessary leading information.  I ask, is it essential that your headline read "Walmart shooting proves fatal" when "Shooting proves fatal" or "Perth shooting proves fatal" provide the reader with sufficient information, rather than leading them to connect the shooting to Walmart itself?  If a person is convicted of child molestation, do we need to know the children's gender; or does that merely serve to bolster negative stereotypes if the victim is of the same gender?

It's important to extract only the most pertinent information for these headlines, captions, and the stories themselves.  Without being mindful of such subtle and seemingly innocuous elements, the storytellers are inadvertently (I would assume) leading readers to develop skewed impressions of involved or related parties.
 
And you thought your driving test went badly...http://goo.gl/ZRtPXr
