We all know what the US Government shutdown is really about. Pokémon X and Y are due to hit in a matter of days now (except for Canada and Italy, who broke street date, cough) and the hype is getting pretty massive.

I’m not going to go into too much detail about the government shutdown, but there’s some pretty scary stuff going on. Largely because Republicans have decided that public healthcare would destroy the country? Despite the fact that both my mother countries (Australia and the UK) as well as naughty Canada seem relatively un-destroyed (and, perhaps¬†counterintuitively enough, public healthcare would actually be better for the economy). I don’t know. I’m just annoyed that the Library of Congress and NASA are offline (also that millions of people don’t have proper healthcare).
