Let's Talk About Whatever You Want Right Now

Hello, friends! It's that time of the week again: Friday afternoon, in which we open up a thread to talk about whatever you want in the name of blowing off some steam. From Snowden's shout-out in today's Obama presser, to the war on Candy Crush addiction, to the mysterious origins of the best Vine compilation of the year.

This post also appears on Whitenoise, the reader-owned stomping grounds that functions as a veritable 24-hour open thread. So if one chatroom isn't enough (it never is), head on over.

So: How was your week? See any good GIFs? Drop 'em below!
