The 2008 bank bailout of $750 billion was greater than all the money NASA had received in its half-century history; two years’ U.S. military spending exceeds it as well. Right now, NASA’s annual budget is half a penny on your tax dollar. For twice that—a penny on a dollar—we can transform the country from a sullen, dispirited nation, weary of economic struggle, to one where it has reclaimed its 20th century birthright to dream of tomorrow.

Make good stuff, then make it easy for people to buy it. There’s your anti-piracy plan. The big content companies are TERRIBLE at doing both of these things, so it’s no wonder they’re not doing so well in the current environment. And right now everyone’s fighting to control distribution channels, which is why I can’t watch Star Wars on Netflix or iTunes. It’s fine if you want to have that fight, but don’t yell and scream about how you’re losing business to piracy when your stuff isn’t even available in the box I have on top of my TV. Jonathan Coulton
They do like their top 10 lists, don’t they?

Wow, that’s two good X-Men launches in a row.  The line is still probably too big by about 4-6 books, but judging by Wolverine and the X-Men last week and the new Uncanny this week, they’ve got two solid flagships.  
I buy a fair amount of comics, and I enjoy them (I’m not one of those people who buys books I’m not into), but I have to say, in recent years I haven’t had that eagerness for the next issue all that often.  (I think the last time was during “World’s Most Wanted” in Iron Man, off the top of my head.)  But I’m really looking forward to the #2’s for both of these books.

I don’t know what the best comic I’ve read lately is, but the one I enjoyed the most is pretty likely Wolverine & the X-Men #1.  It’s pretty densely packed (admittedly, it is an oversized first issue, around 30 pages), and it’s a fine mix of fun, action, humor, and cool ideas.  It’s very much an X-Men book while also not feeling like what’s come before.  While setting up a school in Westchester is hardly new ground for an X-book, it’s certainly loaded with story potential, and Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo have assembled a cast of old and new characters that I’m looking forward to following.  And while using Wolverine to sell your book is also not exactly unexplored territory, making him the headmaster is one of those things that just works, even though it kind of shouldn’t.

At first glance it can be seen as similar to techno - however, while Techno makes use of the notorious “oonts” beat, dubstep prefers more of a “wompwompwompwompwomp” sound.
