There’s been a lot of UFO sightings in the USA, England, Canada and Australia, all reporting seeing an object in the sky shaped like a pyramid.

Coincidence? Conspiracy? You decide. Here’s a few links below with more detail but if you only read one, go to the HuffPost article which also has several videos of some of these events in the last week.

Is Batman Gay?

Grant Morrison is a writer for Action Comics, he’s also spent a bit of time revamping the Batman comics. So he’s delved into the psyche of the flying rodent superhero and can tell us a thing or two about him. In a recent Playboy interview, Grant confirms some of what has been rumored for many years when he says the character is “very, very gay”.

As Grant tells Playboy:

"He’s very plutonian in the sense that he’s wealthy and also in the sense that he’s sexually deviant. Gayness is built into Batman. I’m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There’s just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he’s intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay."

Some of the comic purists may claim this is heresy, I would refer them to ComicBookMovie’s defense of Grant’s claim of Batman’s gayness.

Frankly, I don’t care if Batman is gay, though I do like the storylines revolving around Batman and Cat Woman and that would be a shame if the sexual tension between the two is a sham.
