Outwit, Outplay, Outlast, anyone who knows these three tasks has probably watched the show that demands them at one point or another. Survivor... the king of all reality TV shows, has been going strong for a solid 18 years now. Airing in the homes of millions of families all across the country, while branching off to different versions all around the world. There probably isn't a single neighborhood in America that doesn't have at least one person who wants their shot at the million dollar prize, and title of "Sole Survivor." Not to mention, it literally just got CBS a win in ratings a couple of weeks back, when it was the most watched show above all the others that air that Wednesday night.

Since its release last year in November, Venom has been a movie surrounded with debates on how good it really is. Even after the death by firing squad that the anti-heroes first solo outing underwent by critics; the movie still somehow managed to rake in hundreds of millions of dollars in the box office. Fans refused to make too much out of the mediocre reviews and decided to watch the movie and decide for themselves how good it really was. I myself took the same approach by giving it a chance before paying any mind to the unfair ratings that have been bestowed upon the public in the films name. Now, by no means is this title the best superhero film ever made. There are quite a few flaws that should most certainly be addressed when Sony begins production on the sequel, and thanks to the 800 plus million dollars that the film has gained (making it the most profitable superhero origins film of all time) a sequel title has already been confirmed. By now you have probably noticed the great divide in opinion between fans and critics regarding Venom's ratings. How exactly does a film that was given a meager 29 percent on rotten tomatoes, turn up to be one of the most profitable projects of 2018? That question is exactly what we will be investigating in this article. Something within this equation is doing very little to add up, in fact, the only thing that seems to be adding up is the frustration fans are having with these unreasonable, parasites we call critics. So hold on to your symbiotes because we'll be getting into the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the brutally ugly portions that factor into what was an over-all great flick. Although, I must warn you there will be massive spoilers awaiting ahead. So, if you have yet to see Venom than you may want to refrain from reading on (you have been warned).
Darkness ... All I can see is darkness. It sets in like the sun and pulls away all the sound in the world with it. Even the rain that falls all around me does so in a way that escapes my range of hearing. The ground beneath my feet then starts giving way to even more of what is the darkness consuming the world around me. In the ever fading distance, I see the silhouette of what appears to be a young woman. She’s here … Why is she always here? Complete and total silence … Why can’t I ever hear the rain? I can see the young woman raising her head, raising her eyes to meet with mine. Before I have the opportunity to make eye contact with her, I feel my body begin to lose weight, as I start falling. Down into the empty void that is the darkness below me. For what seems like forever, until…
When it comes to long term options for accumulating financial profits, nothing is as secure as the stock market. This day and age, it is not common knowledge that even the average Joe can make a shiny penny off investing in stocks, provided they do their research and play their cards right. With the cost of living on a climb, financial security is guaranteed to no one. Therefore, the impact investing your side cash into America’s open market can have on your life should be too obvious to ignore. I like to consider it as a savings account that puts your money to work, with the potential to see profits no bank in the world could match.
