Despite its flaws, I really enjoyed the first Iron Man movie and even thought Iron Man 2 wasn’t bad. So there was no way I wasn’t going to check out Iron Man 3. I was especially curious how the movie was going to handle the Mandarin, who I remember as Iron Man’s arch-enemy from the old comic books. So far, Marvel has taken a real-world approach to its superhero movies, but the Mandarin isn’t a real-world kinda guy. The question: how would Marvel handle a character whose powers are based on magic rather than the natural world in one of its movies?
Metacritic gave Iron Man 3 a 62% approval rating, while Rotten Tomatoes gave it a freshness rating of 78%. So more critics liked the movie than didn’t like the movie. What did I think? Clink the link to find out.
I finally ditched my Cable TV package and started streaming my TV shows the way nature intended. How did I do it? I signed up for a free trial with Netflix and Hulu-Plus on my PS3, that’s how! But how did it go? Let me spoil the suspense for you: I returned my Cable TV DVR a week later. Now, I’m running my TV on nothing more than media streaming bliss.
So how can you flip your expensive Cable TV package the bird? Read on to find out.
That’s right, kids. The Governing Body is now the Faithful and Discrete Slave itself! High fives anyone? No?
Yeah, I wasn’t surprised either. Whoever had cash riding on this just got paid. Read more about it here. It starts to get interesting around the subheading When Did Jesus Appoint “the Faithful and Discreet Slave” Over His Domestics?

No, it turns out that The Dark Knight Rises is not a porno featuring Anne Hathaway in a fetish costume. Dammit. But it is the latest, and probably last, installment in a series of Batman movies that sucked way less than the ones we got back in the nineties. Oh, and to anyone who thinks Jack Nicholson was a better Joker than Heath Ledger, please stop talking to me. My faith in humanity has been challenged enough without that crap on my mind. Seriously, don’t make me destroy you.
So was the The Dark Knight Rises any good? What’s up with that Bane guy? Did Jim Carrey appear as the Riddler and ruin the whole film with a closeup of his batch? And most importantly, did Anne Hathaway get nude? (Spoiler alert: Disappointed!!!!)
“The faithful and discreet slave” was appointed over Jesus’ domestics in 1919. That slave is the small, composite group of anointed brothers serving at world headquarters during Christ’s presence who are directly involved in preparing and dispensing spiritual food. When this group work together as the Governing Body, they act as “the faithful and discreet slave.”
