While I typically ignore the after-math of the Republican CPAC convention as it's more or less an ego boost to America's far-right politicians, I couldn't help to laugh at Sarah Palin's speech where she gives a parody version of Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham.

Even though I'm a big fan of Marvel, I never really knew much about Thor until the 2011 movie came out. I liked it, though I though it was tad disappointing that Thor was powerless for a good bit of the story. Now the 2nd film in Phase Two of the Avengers films, takes place soon after Thor takes Loki back to Asgard to be judged by their father Odin.
