Welcome to Here's What I Don't Get: Hong Kong Edition! On today's episode we review the top 5 most stylish gas masks, test out our new laser, and discuss the pros and cons of molotov cocktails. But first and foremost we discuss good ol' Blizzard and our support of the #Blizzard Boycott. It'll be interesting to see BlizzCon next month, it's too big for them to cancel now, and they've got no new games in the pipeline....wait what? They're announcing Overwatch 2, Diablo 4, and Starcraft 3?....... Hey everyone, Blizzard said sorry already, lay off them, and get mad at these instead:
- Nay-saying Progress
- Internet Celebs Going Mainstream

We choose to go to the Moon and other worlds not because it is easy, but because we need to rid the galaxy of the Vex, the Hive, the Fallen, and Cabal. Wait, what? How about we choose to go to the Moon and other worlds because it's freaking awesome? Space technology *is* future technology. The computer that put man on the moon had 64 KILOBYTES OF RAM. That's a FIFTEENTH of ONE SECOND of a poor quality MP3. We can't fix the Earth. Either we've destroyed it beyond belief, or it's fine and will die when it's supposed to. EITHER WAY, I'd love to get off the rock and go somewhere else.
Anything sells these days. You know what's hot now? Twitter memes. They go viral, and some Hollywood executive gets a schlub to write up a spec script based on...let's see what's hot now... the "Nobody:" joke meme. IN A WORLD, where stand-up comedienne Angela Lake has a happy life and a booming Twitter following...the world comes to an end. For everyone, but her. Now, in a world without other people, what *is* comedy? When nobody is there to laugh, are you even funny? This Summer, Twitter, Vine, and Instagram star Amanda Haite is...

Ghosts. Are they real? No.
