Blast from the Past
This week has been a great one for science. The internet, which was first launched by Sir Tim Berners-Lee on August 23, 1991, celebrated its 25th birthday this week by posting pictures of cats, insulting strangers, and sharing their 7 favorite movies featuring talking babies. Not to be outdone, researchers have confirmed that they have found a rocky planet quite similar to Earth a mere 4 light years away and have named it Proxima B. Now, I’m not a science scientist, but that’s going to be a tough seven days to top. So what could science do next week to best this week’s triumphs?

Well, the Rio Olympics is nearly over and they were dirtier than ever. And this time around, instead of performance enhancing drugs, the dirtiness came from Rio de Janeiro being a filthy disgusting place! Oh, and also the performance enhancing drugs. The International Olympic Committee has their hands full with this crap, so we’re lucky we don’t have to deal with the Duelists Convocation International breathing down our necks for that… But if we did, what should be on the Magic: The Gathering banned substances list?

Magic players rejoice! Because Wizards of the Coast is better at something than Blizzard! The Hearthstone expansion One Night In Karazhan came out recently, and Hearthstone players immediately took to the internet to complain about the set that many claim adds nothing to the Standard environment, gives no meaningful tools to the class that needs it most, and also makes Limited more of a crapshoot based on the printed rarities. But Magic has had its own Homelands and Prophecies and Saviors of Kamigawas that equally pooped the bed, so what advice would you give to Hearthstone from you as a seasoned Magic player?
