First, hedge fund manager and anthropomorphic talking sphincter Martin Shkreli showed the world what a colossal asshole he was by buying a 52-year-old drug that is very important to HIV treatment, and he jacked the price up by either 1350% or 1500%, depending on whose side of the story you're hearing. Either way, it was a shitty thing to do, and Twitter responded appropriately. Some pointed out Shkreli's personality (he really is a shitty human being)...

While others, including myself, noticed a similarity to another thing that was terrible and nobody liked...
The backlash was pretty intense, and Shkreli finally caved in, sort of, and lowered the price "closer" to what it was before.

The above-mentioned lunch, it should be noted, took the place of a lunch invite from members of Congress. The Pope totally blew them off to actually do a pope-y thing. Good on him. And while I'll be the first to point out that I am not a religious person at all, I have a lot of respect for this guy because he is trying to bring his followers into the current century.

Many are speculating that Boehner is basically doing an endrun around those that want to boot him from his position (the Tea Party wing of the Republicans) because they think he is a little too friendly(?!) with the Democrats. Personally, I have a different opinion.
Either way, he'll be gone, and the guy that everyone thinks is going to replace him is already getting shit on by the Tea Party guys. Good luck to him on that.
Anyway, here's the list, in no particular order...
