It’s been 5 years since Sandy Hook and schools have various procedures and drills in place for similar future attacks. It breaks my heart to see photos of these little kiddos practicing for this. What a nightmare reality this is. (NPR)

So the tax bill might not be a done deal. Susan Collins is hearing it from her constituents, and now it seems that Marco Rubio has felt a tickle in his spine because he says he will vote no unless the child tax credit is increased. (CNN)

The New York Times graphed out Obama’s lies and Trump’s lies so that you can easily print, laminate, and hand out to anyone and everyone. I mean, that’s what everyone is doing, right? RIGHT?! (NYT)

I truly do not comprehend the mentality of wealthy people writing into advice columns to complain about people who are not as wealthy as them. What kind of response do they think they’ll receive? Nothing (I hope) will ever top the Sad Sister from 2014 letter, but this one is pretty bad. (Dear Prudence)

Queen Becky said that she “couldn’t have asked for a better year” because of course she did. La-di-fucking-dah, Becky. (Dlisted)

Did you guys watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? You really should; it’s wonderful. Here is a piece about the fashion on the show. (The Cut)

Apparently, Mormons make a dish called Funeral Potatoes and brb, I’m switching religions. (Obviously, I am JOKING. Please do not “Well, Actually me.”) (Atlas Obscura)

Here is a complete list of all the shows and movies Netflix will be removing in January. I guess I’ll add Miss Congeniality to my lazy Christmas binge watch week. (Hello Giggles)

Kristy returned to the Slashfilmcast this week to talk The Shape of Water. Naturally, she managed to work a reference to Earth Girls Are Easy in there. (Slashfilm)

Taco Bell launched its Mexican-style amber lager, which was made in partnership with craft brewer Four Sons Brewing. Go on and laugh, but I think this brings them one step closer to Demolition Man domination. You better learn how to use those seashells! (Eater)

This headline does not mince words: White Women Keep Fucking Us Over. In.fucking.deed. (Jezebel)

So after you read that, go to this link which lists black women running for office by state. Find your state and support, donate, and vote for them. (Awesomely Luvvie)

Do you need an Adam Driver starter kit to get you better acquainted? (FSR)

Luna Legend is an angel child. What a noodle! (Lainey Gossip)

Concerned about Net Neutrality? Me too. If all of this goes to shit, you can always use wet string to get an internet connect. No, really! (Motherboard)

Tom Hanks said that we should be separating the predator artist from his art and…I don’t agree. Sorry, Tom. I mean, I get what he’s saying. But supporting an abuser’s art gives them monetary success which turns to acclaim which often means they get to continue their abuse and, in some cases, that abuse gets ignored for years or decades. No thank you. I don’t care how amazing your art is. An abuser shouldn’t be rewarded with fame and success, even if he’s the next Mozart. (Celebitchy)

On this Star Wars Thursday, the gang looks quite fetching. (GFY)

People keep asking Matt Damon about sexual harassment, and Matt Damon keeps stupidly opening his goddamn yap. Now I guess there is a “spectrum” of sexual harassment, and also “I know the real story if it’s my friend,” which I guess is his defense of Casey Affleck. Goddamnit, Matt. We try to give you the benefit of the doubt because you scienced the shit out of Mars, but dude! Every time you speak, you say the exact wrong thing. What’s the word we’re looking for here? Oh yeah: COMPLICIT. (Uproxx)

A shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth has opened in Bea Arthur’s name. In life, she was a vocal advocate for the queer community. In death, she’s still giving back. Thank you for being a friend and ally, Bea. (HuffPo)

Longtime Pajiban and Cannonballer, Malin, is making a tiny human. As book lovers do, she has sought out a lot of books on pregnancy. Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom is Wrong and What You Really Need to Know has been particularly helpful. “Emily Oster, the author, is an economist and uses her powers of research and knowledge of statistics to go through all manner of ‘it is known’ pregnancy advice to check what actually makes sense to follow and what you may be better off just ignoring.” What’s your best Pajiba advice for a soon-to-be mom? (Cannonball Read 9)
