On Friday, but really tomorrow, fans of Marvel Comics and casual moviegoers alike will finally find out what happens when a purple alien monster gets control of literal fistful of magical doodads. (Remember when a Friday opening date used to mean that you couldn't see the movie until Friday? Thursday night has been the new Friday for a while now. Look out, Wednesday, you're next.)
That's right, the sky-darkening, pop-culture eclipsing release of Avengers: Infinity War means that the big summer moviegoing season is here. (Remember when the first summer blockbuster didn't open until Memorial Day weekend? The first weekend in May became the first weekend of summer, at least in Hollywood's mind, and now summer is creeping into April. Should March be worried?)
At any rate, a bunch of people like Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Black Panther, Ant Man, Falcon, War Machine, Shuri, Vision, Star Lord (and friends: Rocket, Drax, Gamora, Groot, Mantis), Bucky Barnes, Heimdall, Okoye, and maybe even Hawk Guy, are about to learn that you should never bring a regular old fist to a gauntlet fight.
Thanos, the baddest dude in the Marvel-verse — at least until the next time that a Marvel sequel needs a bigger, badder dude to threaten the fate of humanity — is about to pull a "Hulk smash!" routine on just about everyone. The only thing that can stop him is probably the end of the movie, at least until Part 2 rolls around next year. We're probably all doomed (at least until we aren't).
IRL, of course, you can't just find some pretty rocks, stick them in a golden glove, and send superheros flying as casually as bowling pins. There is quite a bit of power, on the other hand, in understanding technology and how to work with it. Certification is probably not as sexy as an "infinity gauntlet," but it can make quite a difference when it comes to actually mastering the universe.
It doesn't cost all that much to get started, either. A month of training here at TestOut Continuing Education is about as expensive as three or four people going to see Avengers: Infinity War on opening night (Thursday, not Friday, don't forget), with a bit of splurging on popcorn and sodas. If you can afford a night at the movies, then you can certainly afford to change your career prospects.
Maybe even for years to come. Even with an infinity gauntlet, Thanos probably won't have much of an impact on anyone's memories of 2018 in three or four years from now. But a certification could just be the spark that will light the fire that will burn the First Order down. (Wait a second. Did we just cross the streams?) Get certified today, and you can change your future forever.
