Let’s face it, Tony Stark makes the Marvel universe go round. Needless to say his heavy involvement with the upcoming Captain America movie got me giddy. While I loved loved loved the first Captain america, the second installment left me a bit frustrated and unimpressed. I mean, If you are going to be in a superhero movie – suit up why don’t you? I want my superheroes in supersuits and military grade spandex! By the looks of it, Captain America – Civil war will deliver in copious amounts of both Iron Man perfection and adamantium spandex for everyone! Im not sure I accept the spiderman eye thing, but hey – we got more Iron Man so I guess I’ll let this one slide.
The Kardashians may be taking a well deserved break from television, but there is no shortage of new ‘material’ being published by this media conglomorate of a family. I’m all up on Kendalls see through modeling gear and Kylies glossy lips, but this time Kim takes the cake. Takes the cake, eats it and posts a pre baby bod nudie from a couple years ago on instagram, that is. Now, Im not sure if the breakup with Kanye and vintage nudes are all just a marketing ploy for Kanyes album, fashion collection or new book on managing your finances… and I don’t think anyone really even cares by this point. She made us look.
So… we can grow food on Mars? Scientists from Wageningen University and Research Centre in the Netherlands managed to grow crops in simulated Martian soil using grass mixed with the soil to aid the growth procsess. Iflscience reported:
“To mimic the chemistry of Martian soil, the researchers used Earth soil supplied by NASA from Hawaiian volcanoes, which is said to be similar in its composition. And the team found they were able to grow 10 types of crops – tomato, rye, radish, pea, leek, spinach, garden rocket, cress, quinoa, and chives – in the soil.”
So now we can chow down a healthy martian meal when we vacay on the red planet… if you don’t mind the heavy metal poisoning you will get from the soil. But apparently there’s an effort to make these space veggies edible in the future so even astronaut’s moms can force them eat the broccoli now. God damned.
