no disrespect, your comments made me laugh a little out loud i guess.. but your right the system throws millions of new mindless products to us while simultaneously telling people to do more work? we're constantly fed distractions and commercials to re-direct our minds away from what's at focus i wouldn't say i completely agree with this story but I'm glad the author mentioned our handicap to the US political and cultural systems a topic that should be discussed on its own could it also be films like batman and spiderman that get our hopes up for technology that actually provides us with power, or better yet leaves us waiting for some super being to save everyone....

Comment 2 cent$ superheros (Score 1) 396

Im just going to rattle off a few names, see if any of them get picked up by Disney or DC Comics...WarnerBros? Anyone? JugHead Jones, Lois Lane, Duck Tales, Ninja Turtles!! (would really like to see a new movie with them!) DangerMouse, Team America, Richie Rich, Cyclops, Archie + Veronica Lodge +Betty Cooper ... Thats all I got for now.... However, I honestly think main stream Cinema is due for a not-so-stereotypical/ just kickass minority Hero (BlackDynamite does not count..)

Comment 2 cent$ on climate change (Score 1) 2

There has to be a medium when considering nuclear energy will cure climate change - a balance between new technology and organic -primordial methods. Once we begin to strategize with native peoples from these countries then we will have more efforts at cleaner water supplies, healthy weather cycles, glacier stability, reduced carbon emissions and so on. Its difficult to believe that nuclear energy is the best solution in preserving the worlds natural livelihood.
