Teenager Sentenced to Jail Over Minecraft World

Sixteen year old Russian teenager Nikita Uvarov has been sentanced to 5 years in jail for his Minecraft “plot”.

Nikita Uvarov is a sixteen-year-old teenager from Siberia who is being sentenced to 5 years of jail time for creating and planning to destroy a replica of a FSB security service building in Minecraft. Nikita, along with two other colleagues, were initially charged with “participating in a terrorist organization”, in 2020 according to The Guardian, however charges were later dropped due to insufficient evidence.

Despite investigators claiming to have found the teenagers to have also been building and testing make shift explosives, these chargers were dismissed. Text conversations detailing plans to blow up the FSB building in the game were also uncovered during the investigation.

Nikita Uvarov was found guilty on the charges of “training for terrorist activities” and sentenced to 5 years in prison, even though Nikita still claimed he was not guilty. The other two teenagers were charged with possession of illegal weapons and given sentences of 3 and 4 years respectively for their compliance with the investigators.

Nikita Uvarov’s final statements reveal he still believes himself to be innocent of the chargers but if he Is to face imprisonment he “will serve the sentence with a clean conscience and dignity.”

Everything We Know About The King Of The Hill Reboot

While not much has been brought to the public yet, here is everything we know about the KOTH reboot.

Originally airing from 1997-2010 over 13 seasons, King Of The Hill left its devoted audience craving more. Over the past decade, fans have been speculating and fantasizing about what Arlen life has been like since the final scene wrapped. The answer to that question may finally be upon the horizon as series creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels have been reported to be reviving the series by The Hollywood Reporter. The duo is set to oversee the creation and production of the revival under their new animation company, Bandera Entertainment. This announcement follows the revival of Judge’s other popular series Beavis and Butthead, which has been picked up for a new movie coming to paramount+ set in 2022. The movie is set to also be followed by the TV series reboot, however, a time frame for this has yet to be announced.

While Judge has been rather vocal about the return of Beavis and Butthead, it would seem the King Of The Hill project is still being kept close to the chest. Reports of the reboot first came about during a Reddit AMA in 2021 with show writer Brett Forrester when he was asked if there are any plans on a possible King Of The Hill return. Forrester told the Redditor, “I am sure Greg Daniels and Mike Judge will murder me for sharing this but… HELL YES. They are in hot negotiations to bring back King of the Hill.” It would seem as though all the stars seem to be aligning and aligning very soon. While it is still unclear whether or not the show’s return will be set in 2022, it seems rather likely considering Judge’s similar move with Beavis and Butthead, as well as the trend brought about by the most recent South Park special on Paramount+.

While Judge and Garcia are seemingly keeping the majority of announcements under wraps at the moment, we are eagerly waiting for an official statement on the reboot of one of our favorite series. What do you think will be the setting of the KOTH reboot, let us know down below!

Beavis and Butthead Returns

Series creator Mike Judge has confirmed the return of Beavis and Butthead.

Show creator Mike Judge has confirmed on Twitter the metal-loving duo of Beavis and Butthead will be making a triumphant return to the big screen in 2022 with a follow-up movie to the 1996 cult classic, Beavis and Butthead Do America. The film is set to be released on Paramount+ and will feature middle-aged versions of the dynamic-duo. Paramount+ is the same streaming service that ordered a new South Park special at the tail end of 2021 feature “adult versions” of all the main characters.

Judge accompanied his announcement with two character design sketches for Beavis and Butthead (below) with the caption, “They need some time to get back in shape.”

@MikeJudge -Twitter

This announcement follows one made by Judge back in 2020 describing his new deal with Comedy Central to seemingly reboot the series for two more seasons set in the modern era. With no date yet announced for either project, we eagerly look forward to seeing our two favorite degenerates on the screen once again.

Will the Beavis and Butthead movie be a precursor for the rumored new seasons on Comedy Central? Let us know what you think down below as well as in the WSRR Discord server!

The Real Issue with Baldwin’s “Prop Gun”

The REAL Issue with Alec Baldwin’s “Prop” gun.

On October 21st 2021, during film rehearsal for the up and coming movie “Rust”, Alec Baldwin discharged a live round from a “prop gun” injuring director Joel Souza and killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. No charges have been filed to date.

After reading about the events that transpired there is seemingly one question on everyone’s mind, how did this “prop gun” end up firing a live round and killing Halyna Hutchins. Surely a “prop” should not be capable of such things.

It comes as no shock to learn that this “prop” was nothing more than a regular run of the mill handgun that was intended To fire a blank round. In reality there was nothing about this that made it a “prop”. Guns are not toys and should not be treated as such, ever. The mere fact the firearm was capable of firing any form or round, live or blank, indicates that there is nothing that separates this so called “prop” from any other handgun intended to fire live ammunition.

Gun safety should always be at the forefront for anyone holding or in proximity of any form of firearm, real or not. What should be common sense, unfortunately seems to be the biggest common issue when it comes to individuals handling firearms, which is the Golden rule of gun safety; you should NEVER aim any form of firearm, loaded or not, real or fake, in the direction of another person. Once again Guns are not toys, not “props”, and should not be handled as such.

Baldwin, an avid gun control activist, neglected to practice proper firearm safety while handling the alleged “prop”. The National Rifle Association outlines three major steps everyone should take to ensure the safe handling of firearms; Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction, always keep your finger away from the trigger until ready to safely fire, and always keep the gun unloaded until ready to fire. Regardless of the gun was being used as a prop or not, it was Baldwin’s responsibility to be an educated handler of the firearm and use it safely.

While there is a large backing supporting a visibly distraught and traumatized Alec Baldwin claiming it was not his fault, and rather the person responsible for preparing the “prop”, we simply cannot shift the blame because of how someone feels after the fact. Naturally the prop director responsible for having a live round on set to begin with should be held accountable for his negligence, but at the end of the day Alec Baldwin is still responsible for pulling the trigger that took someone’s life. Surprisingly, at the time of writing this article no charges have been filed against Baldwin or anyone else on the production end of the film. Only time will tell if Alec Baldwin will ever face the consequences of his actions, or if the actor producer will find his way out of the involuntary murder of his crew member. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Halyna Hutchins.

At the end of the day you can call it whatever you like, but a firearm that has the ability to discharge any form or round, live or blank, is NOT a prop. With the unimaginably large budget most of these Hollywood movies have it is extremely unfortunate there is not some law or regulation for mock firearms to be made and used in place of real, functioning ones.

How To Get NFTs for FREE

So, You’ve got an extra $2000 that you want to throw away in a digital trash can rather than a physical. Enter NFT’s. You’ve been good, why not treat yourself to some metadata for a poorly rendered piece of “art”. But what’s this, you refused to pull out your net profit in crypto six months ago when it peaked and now find yourself in a constant battle with the refresh page button over your diminutive decimal point value? Not to worry my friend, even you can still get yourself some NFTs.

So what exactly is an NFT anyway? NFTs or Non-Fungible Tokens are more or less one-of-one digital “art” pieces that belong to a blockchain. What does that mean to you? Essentially you can be extra and own the data behind this artwork or media for bragging rights… I suppose. Once you buy an NFT it’s yours, no one else can buy that same blockchain unless you decide to sell it. NFTs can come in a multitude of media sources including, but not limited to, PNG files, GIFs, Videos, Jpeg files, etc.

But here’s the thing right… while it may be a weird niche flex to own the metadata and blockchain behind some little 8-bit sprite some dude on the internet likely created for next to nothing, at the end of the day you bought it because it looks cool. To clarify everything that is about to follow, in regards to the images and other media referenced, it is implied these will NOT be used for commercial or monetary use. The theoretical use of these images will be purely for the viewer’s own enjoyment.

Okay legal disclaimer aside, you buy NFTs ultimately because you like how they look. Now think back to your first iPod touch. You downloaded that generic wallpaper app and went to town downloading and screen-shoting every dope looking design under the sun. To that vein, what is honestly stopping you from taking a picture or downloading the media file of an NFT? If strictly for your own enjoyment why not? You don’t plan on selling it so that aspect is out the window. It’s digital artwork that can been seen on the vast, readily available resource that is the internet. If the reason you want to buy an NFT is to have some little animated computer generated image to yourself, take a picture man. No need to shell out $2,000 for something that is restricted to a digital platform. Hell, Print it out for all I care. Below is an example of a PNG file I have created… yeah I made it just to cover any other bases here… feel free to take a picture or download it to your liking. For all intensive purposes this is an NFT, I am the only one who possesses the coding and metadata file this was made on.

PNG made by Yours Truly Via Spark… For Free

On second thought, If you’d like to pay me $450 for that, I’m willing to talk.

What Causes The Mandela Effect

The Mandela Effect

The Mandela Effect, Named after the mass confusion surround the death of Nelson Mandela, is the name given to the phenomenon of the mass remembrances of events that seemingly never happened. The theory began with the aforementioned Nelson Mandela who passed away in 2013 despite a hefty majority of people remembering him dying in an African prison in the 1980s. Since then the community surrounding the Mandela Effect has grown rapidly as more residuals are discovered and more theories arise as to just how this all can possibly be happening. Before we dive into some of those theories, let’s break down some of the most iconic and recent Mandela Effects that may affect you.

The Berenstain Bears

No, you didn’t read that wrong and no, that’s not a typo. The spark that lit the fuse is largely attributed to these childhood storybook bears. Most often remembered as the “Berenstein Bears” even the most detailed search through the archives will show these bears have always been named the “Berenstain Bears”. While some residuals of old TV Guides and VHS tapes have surfaced, no source that can be traced back to the production or company responsible for these books or shows ever show them being spelt with an “e”.

… A box of chocolates

Everybody and their mother is familiar with the cultural classic that is Forest Gump. Even for those who haven’t seen it (Do you exist?) there is one quote from the film that has surpassed pop-culture. Go ahead and say it to yourself, It’s the catchphrase, The Slogan, The repetend line through out the film. Dis you say “Life Is like a box of chocolates”? If so, You’d be wrong. I know what you’re thinking, how could this be can hear Tom Hanks say it plain as day. I urge you to go back and watch that clip on YouTube, listen closely and hear that iconic line… “Life WAS like a box of chocolates”.

Who’s the Fairest of them all?

Yet another pop culture classic, Snow White. Admit it fellas, you know the quite too. Ya know, that famous quote, “Magic Mirror on the Wall, Who’s the fairest of them all?” That’s right, No “Mirror, Mirror” in this reality. One of the absolute most baffling examples as that exact line has been seen quoted in Shrek as well as inspired its own spinoff of the same name. Yet in the Disney animated Snow White film “Mirror, Mirror” is never spoken. Stranger still, seemingly in the other languages the movie is translated in, that line DOES appear. Residual?

Down The Rabbit Hole

There is an ever-growing list of Mandela Effects that seemingly keep getting wilder and wilder. If none of these have made you question this reality, I encourage you to check out the following video on some of the most bazar Mandela Effects.

Youtube: WatchMojo

So How Can This Be?

As of now there are two major theories as the the reasoning behind the Mandela Effect phenomenon.

The Timeline/Paradox Theory

The first theory revolves around the possibility of a paradox involving the timeline we know to be our reality. And yes, before you jump to it, this theory well precedes Loki and the Multiverse. The theory goes that the world (our world that we have perceived in this reality) has actually ended, and not just once. However rather than physically ending the reality we perceive has merged into another reality causing a paradox, one where we retain the memories from our initial reality despite the subtle differences making these non-existent in the current one. Three notable points in history have been linked to this theory as three different points we have merged with three different realities. The First paradox event is said to be Y2K, originally thought to be “The end of the world” Year 0 would wipe all computer based intelligence ability to comprehend the actual year causing a reset. The second paradox shift is though to be the year 2012 when the Mayan Calendar predicted the end of the world. Lastly and most recently is the year 2020 which was considered to be the coming of days due to the unforeseeable and outrageous events the year hosted. While we can look back at these three fixed points as nothing more than hoaxes and false predictions, oddly enough there seems to be a spike in Mandela Effects following each of these years.

Simulated Reality Theory

Simulated Reality theory is the theory that it is very possible and even extremely likely that we currently live inside a computer generated simulation. The crux of the theory relies on the fact it would be next to impossible to answer this question without first being able to create a simulated reality of our own that perfectly mirrored our reality. However by doing so we also run the equal possibility of either creating the first simulated reality or being the last reality to do so. The Mandela Effect comes into play as the response to a “patch” of sorts. While a new reality or update to our current one could easily overwrite the code for a company like “Febreeze” so that the code reads it was actually always spelled “Febreze”, rewriting the code of near sentient, growing AI as a whole would be a lot more challenging. This would lead to peoples “false memories”. Memories of something that actually existed and was witnessed however was overwritten so that it seemingly never existed inside the current reality.

Closing Thoughts

This is just scratching the surface of the Mandela Effect theory. This ever expanding and ever growing phenomenon is one of my favorite things to discuss and monitor. I highly encourage anyone unfamiliar to look into some of the documented effects as I can almost assure you one of them will strike a chord. Let me know what your favorite Mandela Effects are and which ones sent you over the edge below, then be sure to check out more articles like this one right here!

Who To Watch In AEW for 2022

Who will be positioned for a World Title match in the land of All Elite moving forward into 2022?

For anyone new to the All Elite Wrestling craze, welcome to the biggest revolution in professional wrestling since WCW closed their doors in 2001. All Elite Wrestling has been making needle moving shockwaves in the professional wrestling industry over the past two years and especially in the ladder few months of 2021. One question that constantly looms in the horizon and excites long time fans is, who’s next to be positioned for that World Title spot? Naturally there are a couple hot names right off that bat that are nearly guaranteed to step up, and because of this we’re not taking the low hanging fruit. That being said CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, and Hangman Page will NOT be included in this list. Today we’re focusing on hot young talent that is seemingly on the rise and could find themselves number one contenders for the New Big Gold Belt come 2022.

MJF

Let’s face it, Maxwell Jacob Friedman has been on everyone’s list of future champions for a long, long time now. MJF has had the run of his career in mid 2021 finding himself the focal point of the “Labors of Jericho” storyline which revolved around MJF’s attempt to retire the “Demo God”. While MJF can certainly talk the talk he can also go in the ring. In fact, the higher ups at AEW seem to be so high on MJF even president Tony Khan claimed in the AEW Before The Bell documentary that MJF is so good he “no longer considers him young talent” even though he is one of the youngest guys on the roster. This one seems to be a no brainer and seems like only a matter of time before the “Salt of The Earth” is holding the richest prize in AEW.

Brian Pillman Jr.

image from Talksport.com

Coincidentally enough, the man currently locked in one of the most ruthless feuds going today with the aforementioned MJF, Brian Pillman Jr. has all the makings of becoming a contender for the AEW Championship. Pillman Jr. was a major get for All Elite back in July 2021. Since then the second generation loose cannon has been tearing up the tag division with Varsity Blondes partner, Griff Garrison, until beginning his red hot feud with MJF in his home town of Cincinnati. While Pillman Jr. has proven his in ring capability over the past year time and time again, his verbal skills may have fallen a little behind. Since engaging in this current program however, Pillman has been able to work the stick like never before in his career. On top of being one of the best between the ropes, Pillman has that second generation stigma and is over like hell as the underdog baby face with the fans that it only makes sense we seem him facing off against a monster heel for the AEW title in the near future.

Jungle Boy

Undeniably one of the absolute hottest sensations in professional wrestling today, Jungle Boy Jack Perry is commonplace among dream match talks for young talent and veterans alike. CM Punk. Adam Cole, and Chris Jericho have all discussed wanting to tear it up with Jungle Boy and for good reason. With the backing from the fans as well as management (see Baltimora’s Tarzan Boy for proof) Jungle Boy is the picture perfect underdog babyface, sorry Brian. While he has made serious waves already with colleagues and legends as part of the Jurassic Express, we have to acknowledge the team never makes the cut when future dream matches are discussed, only the son of legendary Luke Perry.

Matt Sydal

Image from Sportskeeda.com

Debuting as the surprise entrant in The Casino Battle Royal in 2020, Sydal was a much welcome addition to the AEW family. A man who fans have been clamoring to see on a big stage once again for many years now, Sydal has seemingly slipped under the radar for the majority of 2021. Competing primarily on Dark episodes and in tag team outings, Sydal has not missed a step in the ring and appears to be in better condition than ever. If AEW plans to keep fresh faces and interesting never before seen matches moving forward, Sydal is a phenomenal choice for a challenger/champion excelling both as a face or heel. While Matt has seemingly found a temporary home on Dark for the time being he does boast a 16-6 record for 2021 and seems to be rising the ranks of All Elite Wrestling,

These are just a few of the potential roster members who could be positioned for great things come the 2022 AEW year. Like previously stated names such as Adam Cole, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Hangman Page and more are almost dead set on an AEW Title program in the near future as well. Who do you believe could be the next AEW breakout star, let us know below and be sure to check out more articles just like this one right here! Personally, Pres10 Vance is showing great promise, but maybe not for 2022.

Spider-Man No Way Home: The Sinister Six

Spider-Man and The Sinister Six

Ever since the video of a video of an Adobe Premier file containing the next entry in the Spider-Man (Home) series was leaked, the internet has been a buzz about what the film may entail and if fan speculation will ring true. One of the biggest theories surrounding the multiverse film is the idea that the main antagonists will be a group of villains from the collective Spider-Man franchise based around the comic book’s Sinister Six.

Who are The Sinister Six?

First things first, who are the Sinister Six exactly? While there are many different variants and versions throughout the decades and series of comics, the core Sinister Six debuted in January of 1964 and consisted of their leader, Doc Oc, Kraven the Hunter, Vulture, Sandman, Mysterio (not Rey), and Electro. Later iterations if the group would include Norman Osbourne’s Green Goblin, Scorpion, Ned Leeds’ Hob Goblin, Lizard, and more. Spanning several eras of comics and multiple universes The Sinister Six has seen its fair share of variety over the years, but if this is the direction Marvel and Sony plan on going for the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home title later this year, who will fill the role of the Six?

Doctor Octopus

At this time, the only visually confirmed villain to join the MCU family and feature in the upcoming Spider-Man flick is Otto Octavius, portrayed by Alfred Molina reprising his role from the 2004 Spider-Man 2 movie directed by Sam Raimi. This casting choice has lead many fans of the series to believe what they had been speculating on to be true, as Marvel dives down the rabbit hole of the multiverse, this leaves the door of possibility wide open for the return of the past Spider-Men including Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. While Otto serves as the head of the Sin. Six in the original comic, we are lead to believe that spot will most likely be filled by our next entry…

The Green Goblin

All but confirmed is Willem Defoe’s infamous Green Goblin from the same series. The Now Way Home trailer saw the use of a very familiar Pumpkin Bomb and an even more familiar laugh. Should Defoe’s Goblin be introduced into the MCU and this proposed Sinister Six, who better to take the helm than the on screen villain who started it all? For our comic accurate audience, The Green Goblin would lead the Sinister Six on a few different occasions but most notably during the formation of the Sinister Twelve.

Electro

Another seemingly locked villain is the return of Jamie Foxx’s Electro as Foxx may have spilled the beans earlier in the year promising a return to the role without the questionable Blue electric CGI. Foxx’s Electro would see the first introduction of the Andrew Garfield Amazing Spider-Man series into the multiverse. The presence of Electro is also heavily hinted at during the short trailer as we see several scenes of what appears to be an electrical storm, with classic yellow lightning nonetheless.

Vulture

Probably the farthest stretch for a return to the series is Michael Keaton’s Vulture from Spider-Man homecoming. We can’t rule him out because while the actor may be popping up on rival DC’s new Batman experiment, Keaton has not ruled out a return as the beloved Vulture. Filling in the Tom Holland era of Spider-Man villains, Vulture would be a much welcome and comic-accurate addition to the Six.

Sandman

Another villain fans have been piecing together based on trailer scenes is Thomas Haden Church’s iconic Sandman from the Raimi series. No one can say the original trilogy didn’t have phenomenal casting… well except Eric Foreman as Venom. Much like Electro, large Sandstorms and seemingly mountains of sand appear in the trailer even at one point being hit by a bolt of electric we can only assume was courtesy of Electro.

Sixth?

While the majority of these are still speculation, there is even more about the final lineup regarding a sixth member. Keep in mind while comic accurate references are always nice and have become more commonplace in the MCU, at the end of the day some divination from the origin isn’t the end of the world and not all comics can be seamlessly adapted to the big screen. We have a few proposed villains to fill out that sixth spot below, and we highly encourage you to let us know who YOU would cast for your Sinister Six.

Mysterio

Once again let me clarify, not Rey. Unlike some of the speculation surrounding previous entries, Mysterio is mentioned by name in the No Way Home Trailer. The only issue is, it’s mentioned in past tense as Peter Parker is questioned surrounding the Death of Mysterio. However there are no rules of time and space in the multiverse, we could 10/10 still see an appearance from Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio from a timeline before his death or even one where he is still alive. Canonically, Mysterio was a part of the original Sinister Six under Doctor Octopus.

Lizard

Another later meme bet of the Six, and another highly theorized addition to the lineup, some fans believe Lizard can be seen swiping at Peter during a brief scene in the trailer. While his role may not have been as Iconic as a Green Goblin or Doc Oc, The Lizard would see another entry from the Andrew Garfield era of the Spider-Man Franchise.

Scorpion

This one may come as a surprise but here me out. During the closing scene of Spider-Man: Homecoming we witness Michael Keaton’s Vulture being into his jail cell when he has an intriguing encounter with another inmate boasting a very recognizable scorpion tattoo. The two exchange some words about Spider-Man before the movie cuts to black. Could we finally be seeing the long-awaited debut of Scorpion? If Keaton decides to reprise his role as Vulture, I’d say the odds are significantly better, if nothing else than for a minor cameo role.

Hob Goblin

We spoke earlier about the use of Pumpkin bombs signaling the return of Defoe’s Green Goblin to the big screen. However, a few skeptics are saying this could be a ploy on Marvel’s part to reintroduce the Hob Goblin. While Harry Osbourne, the James Franco version, maybe a little unlikely due to some personal legal encounters, there is another Hob Goblin yet to be seen. Ned Leeds takes over the role of Parker’s best friend for the No Way Home Series but this character has a more significant role as well should the comics be any indication. Ned Leeds can be seen during the trailer under investigation for the alleged crimes Spider-Man has committed. We get a little more to this as we can hear Peter explaining how all of the publicity is hurting the people around him. Will this be the plot to lead Mr. Leeds in his endeavors against Spider-Man as the Hob Goblin? Hey, it’s comic-friendly!

These are just a few options of possible villains we could be seeing in the up-and-coming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie set for this Christmas.
