Since 2005 or so, superhero movies have provided not only fast-paced action but intellectual challenge, requiring viewers to navigate complex interlocked mythologies. It might sound crazy, to imagine filmgoers from the youngish-person demographic thinking hard on purpose during their summer leisure time, but it's true, and that's why "superhero" is the only film genre endorsed by the Teacher's Guild!

‘Toad coin?’ wondered the traveler as he examined the pebble. It did not look all that different from any other pebble, and certainly nothing like a coin. ‘What manner of coin has no head or tail, and bears no seal or flag? Who backs this toad coin, the toad bank? The toad treasury!?’ The traveler laughed, but the toads croaked sternly back at him.
Spending $10-15 a day on perishable organic dog food is not a sign of a decadent culture in terminal decline, it's actually real good and worth it.
