Terms And Conditions May Apply is now available for streaming on Netflix. How many times have you actually read an entire Terms of Service agreement before agreeing to it? I can’t say I have, ever. Of course not, they’re not designed to be read: large walls of text, mostly in a san-serif font and all […]

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? is currently available on Netflix streaming.  What must it have been like writing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?
