kids aged 4-6 perform better during boring tasks when dressed as Batman

 ....and so do the Dads of said kids ;) 

Perseverance, or the ability to stick with something, is critical to success in life, from academics and sports to music and getting around to that presentation for tomorrow’s meeting.
But life is increasingly distracting, especially for kids, with the allure of technology and the ability to access just about any form of entertainment on demand.
So what gives a child grit? Six researchers, building on past studies, designed an experiment to see what makes kids stay on task when presented with the very real-world temptation of an iPad.
Rachel E. White, from Hamilton College, and Emily Prager and Catherine Schaefer from the University of Minnesota, tested four and six-years-olds by giving them a boring computer task and asking them to do it for 10 minutes. They also offered the kids an out: If they got bored, they could play a game on the iPad, located nearby in the testing room.

JL Digital Release Date.


According to iTunes, Justice League will be available on Digital HD on Tuesday, January 30th. That’s just over two months after Justice League hit theaters last November. The movie struggled at the box office and was pushed out of most theaters last month, which is probably why it’s coming to home video much sooner than typical blockbusters.

Good Bye Ben

One of the worst-kept secrets in the DC Extended Universe is Ben Affleck's interest in departing the films permanently. A recent report by Variety claims that, while Affleck is expected to appear in the upcoming The Flash film, he will exit the DCEU and a new actor would accept the cowl for the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman.

JL was suppose to have The BatCycle?

Batman had two vehicles in Justice League, the Batmobile and the Flying Fox. However, there was almost a third vehicle. Production designer for Justice League, Patrick Tatopoulos recently shared a couple sketches with the world on Instagram of concepts for the Batbike. I find the design to be very intriguing. It doesn’t have wheels indicating a futuristic hoverbike approach.

JL Review....sorta

I saw JL last night. It was good.......but.........
I hope the DVD/Digital copy is longer/uncut with a ton of deleted scenes in it! 
For a comprihensive reivew, check out JETT's musings on I think he sums it up correctly. 
THE BOTTOM LINE: Despite a very weak plot, lack of character development, crappy villain, and horrendous CGI, JUSTICE LEAGUE is a safe, somewhat fun, popcorn movie that's frankly forgettable. There’s some really good, some really bad, and A LOT meh of in between. - Bill "Jett" Ramey
