It's Friday! Time for your Burnt Orange Reporters to close some browser tabs and touch on the issues of the week.

First up this week, jump on the 2048 bandwagon with this Wendy Davis & Leticia Van de Putte themed version of the game.

Below the jump, read all about Blake Farenthold's newest enemy, how conspiracy theories emerge on Facebook, and the absolute worst Craigslist ad we saw this week...

File this Austin Craigslist ad under "Not cool bro," or "gentrification at its worse." The original title?: "Crack House for Lease...Seriously (it's in a great location) (east austin)"
