so the xmen is about how we are all human-marvel argues that mutants are not to save money...

No! This is exactly what the X-Men are fighting for, Marvel! To not be considered freaks!
Marvel Comics WINS! (like a boss) <--- I'd hear about this.... It's totally fantabulous!

I love podcasts, especially the technology focused shows. I have been following Tom Merritt for years, originally and love his latest show, Daily Tech News Show. Instead of advertising, it uses a "value for value" model where any listeners can make a regular voluntary contribution. Over 4000 already contribute every month, many paying just $1 a month.

“Hedonism(y) Trojaner” is a beautiful sculpture of a horse that is made out of resin and recycled computer keys and cables. It is by Nuremberg, Germany-based artist Babis Pangiotidis.
"Hedonism(y) Trojaner" by Nuremberg-based artist Babis Pangiotidis, is a modern rendition of the legendary Trojan horse built entirely out of resin and recycled computer keys.
The piece, made with recycled computer keys by Babis Cloud, is titled Hedonism(y) Trojaner, derived from the giant mythological Trojan horse built by the Greeks that was used to sneak an elite force of soldiers into the city of Troy under the charade of presenting the city with a gift.

"Hedonism(y) Trojaner" (2009 - detail), by Babis Pangiotidis. Built entirely out of resin and recycled computer keys. The statue symbolizes our dependency on the digital world and the risks of that. A fusion of the Greek mythical Trojan Horse and a Trojan (computer virus).
Trojan horse is known since Greek mythology, where he is given access Greeks in the city of Troy. Now this horse called “Trojaner” has been recreated by designer Babis using resin and recycled keyboard buttons. Set on giant rockers, the sculpture is essentially a giant keyboard in the shape of a realistic-looking horse. Babis is trying to symbolize how tech gadgets and the Internet in particular have infiltrated our lives and our essence of being without us even noticing. He wants us to be aware

mini landscapes inside a tank that looks like paintings kim keever (1)

Kim Keever - not paintings... “Miniature topographies inside 200-gallon fish tanks, based on traditional landscape paintings. Keever fills the tanks with water once he’s sculpted and placed the miniatures, and colored lights and pigments create dense, atmospheric environments. He views his works as an evolution of the landscape tradition and deliberately acknowledges the conceptual artifice.”
Very cool. In this fascinating series, artist Kim Keever creates large-scale photographs that look like landscape paintings. The effect is created by constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank. Keever then fills the tank with water. Using colored
Kim Keever. “Miniature topographies inside 200-gallon fish tanks, based on traditional landscape paintings. Keever fills the tanks with water once he’s sculpted and placed the miniatures, and colored lights and pigments create dense, atmospheric environments."
What otherworldly lands does artist Kim Keever travel to, in order to capture these stunning shots? No further than his studio, where he creates micro underwater landscapes in water tanks.
At first glance, New York artist Kim Keever‘s landscapes look like traditional paintings. But then, on his site, you note aperture, camera, focal length, and shutter speed for each piece
NYC-based artist Kim Keever makes photographs that double as lush, dreamy landscape paintings, and we bet you’ll be surprised about how he creates them. Each unique landscape is the product of a handcrafted diorama and a 200-gallon fish tank.
Artist Kim Keever creates beautiful landscape photographs by building elaborate dioramas in a 200 gallon tank
Landscape photos created in a water-filled tank. Photographer Kim Keever messes with our minds with his intriguing works of art. His large-scale photos are created through the construction of topographies inside a 200 gallon tank that is filled with water. Keever brings the dioramas to life through colorful lighting, which in turn makes for amazing atmospheres. It is all about timing as he must quickly capture the results before it’s too late.
