WHO declared China coronavirus a global health emergency

I know this isn't exactly the proper place for breaking news, but I figure the more people know, the better.

TL;DR: WHO declared the virus a global health emergency because they're concerned it might spread to countries that are not prepared to deal with it.

Longer version:

Global health emergencies are declared when diseases have the potential to spread locally once they've arrived to a new country and can result in economic disruption. This doesn't mean it's the Black Plague or Spanish Flu all over again, it just means the virus could become a big issue worldwide if people aren't careful.

Human-to-human contact is possible, but infected surfaces can remain infectious for some time. In terms of transmission it's quite similar to the flu, so do …

Are the Winchesters going to pursue a Hand of God (and other opinions)?

Donatello rhetorically asked them if they had the power of God (which was required to seal the Darkness the first time). They don't, but there are objects that do, introduced in season 11 - the Hands of God.

I think the writers are going to end this season (and the series) with a heavy dose of nostalgia by going back to fan favorites. They already brought back Kevin, Amara, Eileen, Donatello, Michael/Adam, and the Demon tablet. They already alluded to Jody and Donna, and Rowena is now Queen of Hell. My guess is, we're gonna visit a ton of old stuff before God is sealed away (maybe with Amara's help), including the Hands.

Here's hoping for the Alpha Vampire and (the old) Death. Like most fans, I wasn't too sure about Lisa Berry as the new Dea…

What people get wrong about Michael's motivation in the newest episode

I've heard a lot of people bash Michael, saying his "teaming up" with the monsters is absurd, but it's really not. I'll explain.

Consider his actions in Apocalypse World. He tried to create a world he considered perfect by purging those he deemed unworthy, but he eventually realized he'd made a mistake.

In Sam and Dean's universe, he's trying to do something similar, but different. He wants to find beings he considers worth saving and create their version of a perfect world.

With the humans, he saw that they only told him what they believed he wanted to hear. They're cowards and liars. They're not worth saving.

The angels - the few that are left, that is - are broken, fallen, flawed, human. They're not worth saving.

The demons are not worth savin…

Where did Lucifer's creation go wrong?

Although he was corrupted by the Mark, God said it just made him "more of what [he] already [was]". In other words, it simply brought out the worst in him. However, his worst is not like other angels', or even other monsters'.

He crushed a woman's skull and said he liked how warm and wet it was. He tortured Sam to the point he went insane just to pass the time, something not even Dean went through, even though his torture was necessary to free Lucifer in the first place. Castiel said Sam's soul felt like it had been "skinned alive" from the torture it had endured.

On the other hand, from his PoV, he was betrayed, time and time again, blamed for everything that ever went wrong, and all he wanted to do was to make God proud, albeit in his own …

How tall are you?

Just for fun, how tall are you, compared to the cast members? As in, who's the cast member who's closest to your height, and are you taller or shorter than that person?

I'll start: I'm taller than Jared. Yes, really.
