That's right, psychiatrists and doctors were astounded to discover the healing properties of great memes rival those of CBD. But if you are skeptical, just check out these dank memes that are sure to put the kick back in your step.
We'll be the first to admit that these memes, tweets, and pics won't be winning any awards. Unless they're up for an award for randommemes that could possibly cure your boredom for a few minutes. Then they'd most certainly qualify.
The latest Marvel meme to hit our screens is ripped from Spider-Man: Far From Homeand features the handsome mug of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio. The character appears wide-eyed and is uttering the line "Now this is an Avengers level threat." As one can imagine, the meme is used to describe situations that are the opposite of dire, like, say, the existence of sand in the mind of Anakin Skywalker. Or an "armed" man with no legs and no hands. The meme is simple, but it's still inspiring some light chuckles.

2. Hunger Games IRL at the Olympics
During the men's marathon on Sunday, Ethiopian long-distance runner Feyisa Lilesa pulled a Hunger Games moment and showed his support for the Oromo Protests in his home country by making a specific motion with his arms:
Showing the sign is highly political though, so when he spoke a press conference after the marathon he said what he risked with the gesture, "If I go back to Ethiopia maybe they will kill me," he said, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
"If I am not killed maybe they will put me in prison. [If ] they [do] not put me in prison they will block me at airport. I have got a decision. Maybe I move to another country."
Like the Hunger Games, let's hope the people can rise above this oppression.
2. Donald Trump Breaks the Lie Barrier
Fact Check says Trump's First Ad Averages 1 Lie Every 4 Seconds. I can hear Hillary's slow golf-clap from here. Let's hope his next ad doesn't disappoint us either.
3. But Did You See the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team on the Beach in Rio?
I'm just saying, I didn't know it was possible to get an 8-pack:
But, what do you guys think about Purser as a potential alternative? Since Purser's post went live she's been contacted by a few Marvel executives to see if she wants to come by their headquarters. She's definitely shown herself to be talented in the hit Netflix Original Series 'Stranger Things', so I don't know. Thoughts?
Today, Marvel gives us our first look at the one-of-a-kind, larger-than-life Captain America statue that they made in partnership with Comicave Studios, which goes on display at the Marvel Booth at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016, July 20th.
After Comic Con, the statue sets forth for Steve Rogers' hometown of Brooklyn, New York where it will stay in Prospect Park for a couple weeks.
Yes, Marvel's baddest villain's getting his own comic series folks. Writer Jeff Lemire, and artist Mike Deodato are set to chronicle Thanos' ongoing exploits in a new series that's launching as part of Marvel NOW.
It looks as if we'll be following Thanos for the long haul, as he attempts to regain his throne as Marvel's most feared 'n vile villain.
As for Thanos' mission in the new comic series, here's what writer Jeff Lemire had to say:
The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”
M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...
Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:
Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.
Alright, SPOILERS revealed in the paragraph below. Only keep reading if you want to know!
Last month many of us were left shellshocked, as jaws dropped to the floor and we learned Captain America had been a Hydra sleeper agent since he was a boy in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.
Thing is, in spite of what Rogers might recall from his childhood, everything is not as it originally seemed. Indeed, from the creative team of writer Nick Spencer and artist Jesus Saiz, we learn in Captain America: Steve Rogers #2 that Steve's 'memories of indoctrination' were implanted by Kobic, the sentient cube that became a girl. And the buck don't stop there...it turns out Kobic had been under the influence of Red Skull for months.
Emmerich claims himself a visionary, and one who has no time for 'superhero fare' inspired by his films. Fair to say, Emmerich's about to be dealt a nice serving of blowback based off the following incendiary remark he made about Marvel superhero movies...
“I’m a big believer in original ideas. I tell this to every kid who comes to me and says they want to be a filmmaker. I say, ‘Do what you want to do and don’t let yourself be talked into anything.’ When you look at my movies it’s always the regular Joe Schmo that’s the unlikely hero. A lot of Marvel movies, they show people in funny suits running around. I don’t like people in capes. I find it silly when someone dons a superhero suit and flies. I don’t understand it. I grew up in Germany, that’s probably why.”
Georgia's governor, Nathan Deal, has until May 3 to either sign or veto a bill that proposes to allow a faith based organization to refuse property and service to anyone who "violates such faith based organization's sincerely held religious belief" according to CNET.
This is a bill that supporters say defends "religious liberties" but others point out that all it really does is legalize discrimination, particularly toward gay people. And this issue is more than just letting a bakery refuse to make a cake for a gay wedding, this "protection" reportedly extends to hiring practices as well.
Disney and Marvel, who do a lot of business in Georgia have thrown their weight around with this statement:
Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law.
This is a pretty big deal, 'Captain America:Civil War' was made in Georgia and the latest 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is filming there now. Big budget productions spend a lot of money and they aren't the only ones threatening to find an alternative location. According to Variety, AMC and Viacom are also not so subtly suggesting that Georgia better not sign that into law. AMC said this:
As a company, AMC Networks believes that discrimination of any kind is reprehensible,” a company spokesman said. “We applaud Governor Deal’s leadership in resisting a previous version of this divisive legislation and urge him to reject the current version as well.
And Viacom issued this statement:
Viacom is proud to champion diversity and acceptance, which are core values of our company. We have enjoyed doing business in Georgia for many years and we urge Governor Deal to continue to resist and reject the patently discriminatory laws being proposed.
So many productions potentially leaving the state could mean huge economic losses and a growing film industry would be shattered.
UK-based company Open Bionics is developing these super awesome prosthetic limbs for kids based on Iron Man, Star Wars, and Frozen.
"They won't have to do boring physical therapy, they'll train to become heroes. They're not just getting medical devices, they're getting bionic hands inspired by their favorite characters," the company said in a statement.
Disney has provided consultation on the project and royalty-free licensing.
Working with Lucasfilm's ILMxLAB and Disney creative teams, the 3D-printed arms are based on on Iron Man's gauntlet, a lightsaber and Queen Elsa's hand.
