“Milk” is trending on Twitter today because CNN aired a piece about how the price of milk is going up, and impacting the average American family. Sounds innocuous enough, right? See if you can figure out why people are dunking on this story:
"A gallon of milk was $1.99. Now it's $2.79. When you buy 12 gallons a week times four weeks, that's a lot of money."@EvanMcS goes grocery shopping with the Stotlers and shows us how badly inflation is hitting the middle class. pic.twitter.com/39hPPRHLja

Now, to be fair to this stupid piece, if you watch it, there are 12 members in this family featured, which, OK.
But a few things:
1. If you’re trying to demonstrate the impact of inflation on the average American family, maybe don’t use a family with 12 members? and …
2. Even if there are 12 people in your family, you’re going to tell me that each and every one of you drinks an entire gallon of milk a week? But …
3. Milk prices have actually only increased about 3% in the past year, so all of this is complete bullshit.
I was curious so I looked up some USDA stats on milk prices. the rough average price of a whole milk gallon in Jan 2020 was $3.52. today it is… $3.69 https://t.co/3BQcSpmOBE pic.twitter.com/zVjEGlhENH

But please, go on and have a public tantrum about being called out for this:
Truly remarkable number of assholes on here attempting to dunk on a charming family who lays out how it feels to shop with price rises. Very wise and cool tweets. Glad you’re all weathering the economy so well! https://t.co/AqA26YbwIA

Paramount+ and Showtime’s streaming platform have more than 47 million subscribers, which is pretty good!
Roku will be removing Porn Hub and other porn channels from the platform, which I’m sure will be super popular with people.
The creator of Squid Game, Hwang Dong-hyuk’s first three movies are now available on Netflix:
Before bringing the visually astounding and socially relevant Squid Game to life, Hwang Dong-hyuk directed several acclaimed South Korean feature films — and now, three of those movies are available on Netflix in The US! pic.twitter.com/FV0nUQV91D

The movies are Silenced, a film about a school for the deaf where the students are being abused:
Miss Granny, about a 70-year-old woman who suddenly turns into a 20-year-old:
And The Fortress, a historical drama set in the 17th century.
But if you’re looking for something a little more Squid Gamey, Netflix has you covered there, too. Alice in Borderland, a violent Japanese series from last year with a similar theme as Squid Game, has seen a boost in viewership in the past month or so thanks to the popularity of Squid Game. Here’s the trailer:
H’oh boy, this Rust story is getting ugly. The armorer in question, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, is now suggesting that someone deliberately placed the live rounds on the set in an act of sabotage. Basically, she and her lawyers are implying heavily that “disgruntled” former camera crew members may have something to do with the incident instead of, you know, incompetence on the part of an untrained and inexperienced armorer who was doing double duty as a prop master. But who knows?
